FULL TEXT OR INTERVIEW AVAILABLE ON REQUEST

IDollators, a colloquial way of referring to people who find companionship with dolls, have communities throughout the United States and create links with other groups around the world, in Russia, Japan, Canada and Europe. This has become a world phenomenon. They share ideas, visions, fears, and above all their love for these Silicon dolls made by specialized companies for the hefty price of around six thousand dollars each.

Terry, a retired Navy man, once married with children, now lives with his silicone Doll called Feodora. She was built in Vladivostok Russia by a Russian company who specializes in the making of Anatomical Dolls like Terry's.

Davecat (he prefers to be identified by his online handle in a popular Doll Forum) has two silicone dolls, one he considers as his wife, Sidore Kuroneko, made in Japan, and the other his mistress, Elena Vostrikova, made in Russia. Both share his life inside his small Detroit apartment.

Some iDollators save their money for years in order to acquire a life size companion. Once acquired, owners have different uses for their newfound love. While most do have sex with the doll on a regular basis, some do not, and only seek companionship and care through this lifeless body.

Terry is not the typical doll owner: he does not have sex with it. Rather, Feodora keeps him company while perfecting his long time hobby: photography. Davecat, however, has regular sex with his mistress and wife dolls.

Often referred to by their first names, the dolls can be seen publicly as their owners take them along for day to day leisure activities.

After a difficult relationship with a woman, John opted for a drastic change in his romantic life and bought Jackie, a life-like doll made in California. He takes her everywhere, but preferably to the Zoo and to his favorite restaurant, where the owner and his workers are happy to accommodate him and Jackie to their favorite meal.

Is this new phenomenon a sign of the things to come in a ‘modern’ global civilization where individualism reigns supreme over traditional family values? These individuals who prefer to give love to a silicone body over a real human are perhaps direct proof that humans were never meant to live their lives alone, but to share what life has to offer with others.
