I can’t let this Valentine’s Day pass without sharing this story with the Beauty Brains community, even though it doesn’t exactly fit with Mid Brain’s “Science of Valentine’s Day” theme.
Realdoll is a company that sells lifelike (I repeat, lifelike) male and female rubber companions (aka, dolls) for a mere $5,000. (No, that’s not a typo – I said $5,000!) No written description that I can provide could possibly do justice to this concept. To get the full impact you’ve GOT to see the Realdoll website and this bizarrely captivating video featuring interviews with 4 people who are in, uh…relationships with dolls. Needless to say, this is all very NSFW. If you’re under 18, don’t even THINK about clicking on these links. Seriously. We will hunt you down and tell your parents, you little brats.
*Sigh* I miss my Barbies. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
