‘Guys and Dolls’ Documentary Looks at Real Dolls and Those Who Love Them

img-php.jpgI remember when I first caught the trailer for the Ryan Gosling film ‘Lars and the Real Girl’, I thought the subject matter could be a little too quirky to take seriously. The film, produced by Channel Five in the UK, tells the story of a lonely man who tries to pass of a ‘Real Doll’ as his girlfriend. Ridiculous! Well, thanks to Sean (someone who’s constantly searching the net for stories of synthetic love) ‘Guys and Dolls’ is a documentary that makes ‘Lars and the Real Girl’ look like ‘When Harry Met Sally’. Now I haven’t had a chance to watch this thing yet (i’m guessing it’s NSFW) but I had heard of this some time ago. Here’s a synopsis (from The DigiGuide, via The Current Outlook):

Documentary about the men who use sophisticated life-size dolls for sexual satisfaction and more – such as dates, affection and lifelong companionship. Featuring a young American man who gives his doll daily massages in the home he shares with his disapproving Mum and Dad; a British man who takes his doll out on day trips to the coast where she watches him hang- glide; and two Americans who live with multiple dolls, one of whom shares his eight synthetic lovers with his human girlfriend.

Sounds like some good clean fun! Seriously, this is pretty strange and makes me feel much better about the Star Trek 2: Wrath of Khan 25th Anniversary U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 16-inch Starship I just bought. You can check out the entire film below thanks to Google Video. I know i’m going to as soon as I get home and finish assembling my starship and placing it in my display case.
