In the meantime, I mused about how we look at dolls in general. Little girls want idealized babies to nurture and care for with perfect features and a life-like feel. While they know that they are not alive, they certainly draw serious affinity toward them and often cherish them for a lifetime. Boys also are drawn to the figures of the dominant male type. In our culture, these concepts are bolstered at every turn. With this in mind, is it really that surprising that there is an entire subculture of people who enjoy life size dolls? Some people treat them as a young person would treat their doll, with a sense of companionship, or even with the idea of collecting beautiful things, while others use them as relentlessly wanton sex slaves.
