The first time I ever saw a "non inflatable" love doll was many years ago by the company who I guess started the whole rubberized girl thing Real Dolls/Girls. I have been with a lot of girls/women in my time (real ones LOL!) but always found the synthetic versions (that I eventually saw on the internet when they first appeared) to be kinda interesting. They were way to expensive for me to even think about at the time so I didn't bother giving owning one a second thought. Years passed, one relationship after another I finally realized, I'm not good at relationships and didn't want to marry anyone or have kids. I like being free in the way that I am for what that's worth. Don't get me wrong, family life is a great thing and a lot of people love it but, I always knew it wasn't for me. Of course I still do the dating thing but, I'm not looking for a permanent relationship. Is that shallow, no because a lot of females out there feel the same way. The "dolls" to me are just a really big action figure, a material object that is fun to photograph and mess with any way I please if the need be. As an object that can be used artistically in so many ways, I think they're awesome! Obviously I ended up being able to afford them and now post some of my photos in the forum now for you guys. Wishing you the very best always!
