The Real Doll is no barbie - weighing in at 75 lbs, costing $6k+ and being a full sized sex toy it is different on many counts. But men (and some women) like to play witht them, pose them for photos and buy clothes and accessories for them. Salon asks if the men who own Real Dolls are sick or normal. Perhaps they are just lonely people who like to cuddle at night - not so different from sleeping with a full length pillow. Or in other cases they are porn artists in need of a completely posable model. Finally Nevre sends in a reporter to go all the way with a Real Doll and tell us about his experience (a laugh out loud story in my opinion!)
