A strange trend is sweeping over in Japan that will leave you puzzled. The men in the country are choosing sex dolls over real women as an ideal partner. Yes, it is happening for real. We have heard of the crazy sexual fantasies and the popularity of sex toys worldwide but settling down with a sex doll or more in number is shocking. The pictures of middle-aged men finding true love and a companion in sex dolls are bound to leave you speechless. The bewildering intimate photos capture the intense bond these men share with their rubber built partners which reflect that their relationship is indeed more than just sex.

Japan witnessed a rise in a number of men finding the love they sought for over the years in silicone sex dolls. However it might stun or unsettle you, these people are enjoying the company of their unusual companions. Physiotherapist Masayuki Ozaki lives with his ‘girlfriend’, a life-size sex doll named Mayu. In the same house of the 45-year-old man also lives his wife and daughter. Ozaki claimed that his married life lost sparks after his wife delivered their child.

In an interview with AFP, Masayuki Ozaki said that he felt a deep sense of loneliness before “meeting” Mayu. He was quoted saying, “After my wife had given birth we stopped having sex, and I felt a deep sense of loneliness.” Ozaki further adds about meeting Mayu, “But the moment I saw Mayu in the showroom, it was love at first sight.”

He goes out on numerous dates with his sex doll girlfriend. In order to have easy commutation, Ozaki travels Mayu seated on a wheelchair. The two enjoy a ‘healthy relationship’ with the physiotherapist dressing his girlfriend in fine jewelry, sexy dresses and of course wig.

On being asked about how his wife and daughter reacted to his love for the sex doll and its accommodation in the house he shared with them, Ozaki narrates baffling details. At first, his family was too angry at him falling in love with a sex doll. His daughter found it ‘gross’ at first of Mayu, his girlfriend living with them but they understood his feelings and true love. “I just get on with the housework. I make dinner, I clean, I do the washing. I choose sleep over sex,” Ozaki’s wife, Riho said.

Unlike Masayuki Ozaki’s family, Senji Nakajima’s kin were not so accepting of his love for his rubber partner. Despite having a fall out with his family over his involvement with Saori, Senji does not regret one bit. “I’ll never date a real woman again — they’re heartless. I wouldn’t be able to take a bath with Saori, or snuggle up with her and watch TV,” he said. “I don’t want to destroy what I have with her,” Nakajima further adds.

Another Tokyo resident named Yoshitaka Hyodo has a house full of sex dolls and Japanese erotica. According to his prediction, men would prefer to have a relationship with rubber sex dolls in the future than date a human being. He says, “It’s less stress and they complain a lot less than women. People might think I’m weird, but it’s no different than collecting sports cars. I don’t know how much I’ve spent, but it’s cheaper than a Lamborghini,” says Hyodo.

Each year in Japan, around 2,000 life-sized dolls are sold. Their price ranges from 600,000 yen or USD 5,300. Hideo Tsuchiya, managing director of doll maker Orient Industry, said that technology had come a long way since the inflatable dolls of the 1970’s and today silicone dolls look and feel unbelievably real. Junpei Oguchi, a representative for Tokyo-based sex doll maker Orient Industry, wants people to change their perspective towards sex dolls and see them as a work of art.
