Well i think it's obvious that mike only uses the dolls for sex. I'm sure with 8 dolls he doesn't care about dressing them nicely or 'classy'. Like he said in the documentary... he wakes up at 3AM and pulls one out of the garage.

i completely understand the masturbation part of it but that guy with the guns and swords and shit seemed like he might go postal on that little farm town of his at anytime... i think that the dolls might make those guys feel like they are happier with them but i think eventually it will crash down on them and make then even more depressed then before.. like when they finally realize how fucked up they are and how much time they have wasted on the dools when they could ahve been out searching for a real compainion... another thing is how objectifying it is for those guys who consider the dolls a "life partner" like what the fuck the only thing she can do for you is sex.

At first I thought, “How pitiful, how frightening.” These men are so insecure: scared of rejection, scared of loss, scared of Compromise. Then I started to see the other side. “Maybe they are on to something…” They don’t have to listen to anyone. They can get a doll that looks like a woman that doesn’t exist. If the woman existed that looked like the doll, They still wouldn’t be able to get it. Plus one of the men began taking photos. I looked at taking photos as a positive. Even if the man was taking photos to make the dolls come alive. It’s still a positive. It’s art. Another man said he is close to lifeless objects. A poster. A doll. These things don’t live and they don’t leave. I thought one of them is gay. One might have been hurt in a real relationship. And now is scared like a little kid who just learned to ride his bike. The kid wipes out and scrapes up his knees-his elbows. He doesn’t want to get back on the bike. And the other, I don’t know. This is a sign of our society. This is where we’re headed. “[At first our relationship was just about sex. All we did is have sex. Now it is more meaningful. Now we lay in bed-speechless-and hold each other.]” Or another guy saying, “[The only time I have to listen to anyone is when I am at work. That is only forty hours a week. The rest of the time I am here with her.]” I think he is scared of not having total control. To some extent we are all helpless. We live without control. We live uncertain of what is going to happen next. And that is the beauty.

One of those guys was very confused between love and sex. A doll can not love, nor can it provide anthing other than an alternative to the hand. I strongly believe that all of those men were mentally ill, but mostly that davecat and guy from virginia; severely mentally ill. I think they are caught in a fantasy they created out of anxiety and cannot escape because they found that anchor that keeps them in it. I consider myself to be very lonely at times, but I could never imagine living like that - my entire life revolved around plastic. Maybe this is a message from God, telling us to look at the Dream of Humanity and how it affects us all. After all, don't we all revolve our lives around plastic?
