Doll marriage next after same sex marriage?

September 13th, 2013 at 2:00 pm by David Farrar

The Atlantic reports:

Davecat lives with his wife and mistress, both , and thinks synthetic partners are ideal for those who don’t want to deal with humans’ inconsistencies.

Personally I think the inconsistencies are what makes relationships fun :-)

Is it just me, or does he look a bit doll-like himself?

Sidore is a RealDoll, manufactured by Abyss Creations in the shape of a human woman. She is covered in artificial skin made of silicone, so she’s soft. These high-end, anatomically correct—even equipped with fake tongues—love dolls (or capital-D Dolls) are ostensibly made for . But 40-year-old Davecat (a nickname acquired from videogames that he now prefers to go by) and others who call themselves iDollators see their dolls as life partners, not toys. Davecat and Sidore (or, as he sometimes calls her, Shi-chan) obviously aren’t legally married, but they do have matching wedding bands that say “Synthetik [sic] love lasts forever,” and he says they’re considering some sort of ceremony for their 15th anniversary.

As there have been predictions that same sex marriage will lead to polygamy, people marrying their sister etc, is the next logical step that people can legally marry their love dolls? :-)

Davecat considers himself an activist for synthetic love, and the rights of synthetic humans, such as Shi-chan. 

They have rights?

When and why did you purchase your first Doll? Were you thinking of companionship at the time, or was it just for sex?

I bought Shi-chan back in 2000. Admittedly, my reasons for purchasing her were 70 percent sex, 30 percent companionship. I’ve always been attracted to artificial women such as mannequins, and especially Gynoids, which are robots made in the likeness of human females. In late 1998 one of my best friends, showed me the RealDoll website, as she knew I was keen on artificial women. I thought they were gorgeous creations, and having one would not only dispel loneliness, but be excellent for sex as well. And I was right!

I wonder how the companionship works? Do they discuss what is on the TV?

We’ve all seen relationships where things start out fantastically, and then just end up falling apart. A friend of mine just got divorced after 17 years of marriage. That’s an enormous investment of time, money, and emotion, and I’m not interested in having someone in my life who may bail at any time, or who transforms into someone unpleasant. Ultimately, getting romantically involved with an organic woman doesn’t seem worth it to me.

Yeah those organic woman are just so much hard work!

    Many a true word spoken in jest DPF…Once you alter the defintion of marriage, literally any other “relationship” also can become the subject of a campaign for “equality”…

    This is just sad – human relationships are complicated but human beings need also each other.

    In particular in order to survive as a species we need individual human beings to form strong relationships with another human being of the opposite sex.

    Such relationships have always been fraught but in recent times some particularly repugnant individuals have deliberately made them more difficult to establish and maintain – this has been done to advance a political agenda of course.

    This guy is just another casualty of the gender wars because no way is wanking into a plastic doll in anyway comparable to the life giving relationship that is only possible between a man and a woman which goes far beyond the ephemeral pleasures of the flesh and can be the greatest source of human happiness imaginable, if we allow it and work at it

    andrei – i dont think you wank into it.. i think you fuck it..

    also, im not sure you mentioned “opposite sex” and “man and a woman” enough in your post. Im not convinced you dont mean its ok to be gay.

    I saw a doco on this “doll love” phenomenon a few years ago…I think the human doll in the post might have been in it…seriously deranged individual…he was shown “greeting” the doll after she had been returned from having a rebore…

    The purple haired one reminds me of a young Metiria Turei.

    You are right. Danny Crane had an inflatable version of Shirley Schmidt in the cupboard.
    God, but that was a wonderful program. One of the very, very, few TV series where I bought the DVDs.

    I still remember Billy Connelly talking about a disgruntled customer bring one back to the shop complaining that “it went down on me”.

    The shop assistant said, “If I’d known it would do that, I’d have charged you another fiver!”

    Nay, I gave it a love bite and it farted and flew out the window!”

    “They have rights?”

    Well, why not? If you can deny rights to real, pre-born humans, why can’t you extend rights to artificial humans?

    Absolutely. Also, sex involving only one live human is guaranteed to prevent conception, a positive when you consider how unsuited to parenting the seriously deranged generally are.

    Sure you can extend them, but that doesn’t make them any less fictional than ordinary human rights.

    What a doll of a post.

    This guy uses these dolls as an object to project his desires and fantasies, which he cannot achieve in real life.

    And how effective is it? Just have a look at this post.
    Immediately red, andrei and mandk project their favourite fantasies (homosexuality and abortion) into the story.

    Amazing.

    They do, but they only made one, because whatever it was that was killed to make that hairpiece was the last of its kind. The dead-eyed human simulacrum was last seen planking, then making furtive phone calls to a journalist.

    Objectum sexuality or objectophilia is about the love of humans for inanimate objects. From what I can work out, it isn’t illegal to love or have sex with something that’s an inanimate object and has never been alive in the first place, although in the latter context, there may be potential problems if one consummates one’s desires in public space. However, it is often the case that there is a strong cathexis or erotic pull to particular objects that is sufficient in itself. When I was informed about this, I raised an eyebrow, but shrugged. As it states on a related website, objectumsexuality.org, this is an essentially harmless paraphilia. For some reason, it seems to be more popular amongst women than men, and these women (and men) love objects such as monuments, statues, oak trees, warehouses, mannequins and dolls. Actually, the love of statues, mannequins and dolls is known as agalmatophilia, but it’s equally harmless. Apparently, the emblem of objectum sexuality is a red fence, and objectophilia/objectum sexuality is an orientation to love inanimate objects.

    Ah well, whatever floats your boat, I suppose. So to speak!
