Japanese men woo silicone sex dolls to overcome loneliness

Some Japanese people have become so disenchanted with relationships that they’ve resorted to dating silicone sex dolls. These life-size dummies with incredibly realistic features are not just sex toys, but often emotional outlets as well.

Some doll owners treat their silicone partners as if they are real people, doting on them at home and taking them out on dates. RTD went to Japan to meet both men and women smitten with these silicone surrogates and get a closer look at the country’s sex doll industry.
