Meet my silicone girlfriend

Meet my silicone girlfriend
Left: Founder of a company which brings in anatomically-correct sex dolls. Right: A doll from company, Realdoll.

Terry is a single, middle-aged Singaporean who holds a white-collar job.

He has tried dating a few times, but is admittedly not too charming with the ladies.

But Terry, who is in a senior management position in a company he does not wish to name, is not worried about finding love.

Every evening, he comes home from work, plops himself on his living room sofa and turns on the television.

Beside him sits a buxom lady who has been waiting for him the entire day.

Her name is Babe and she is in her "early twenties".

Babe remains motionless as Terry caresses her hands while talking about his day and how it went.

She does not reply. She cannot.

This is because Babe is made by Hitdoll, a Chinese company which manufactures anatomically correct, life-sized dolls.

"Babe is very real for me," Terry tells The New Paper on Sunday.

"I can feel that she is mine and for me only. The touch and feel is very much different from other women outside."

Babe is made of silicone and has a metal skeleton with movable joints.

Her body is modelled after real actresses and she comes with custom-made silicone inserts for her, well, lady bits.

She is made to the specifications Terry picked out from an online catalogue. Babe is 1.68m tall and sports a D-cup bra.

He bought her from Toy Orgasmic, the only Singaporean reseller to import and distribute these adult dolls here.

Its owner, Mr Jay Ng, says that he is "shocked" by the number of enquiries he received when he first imported them last October. He now has around 20 customers, some of whom are regulars.

Not all customers form relationships with their dolls but all of them are forking out big time - the dolls cost from $3,000 to nearly $20,000.

Take 32-year-old Jeremy for instance. He bought a doll made by US-based company RealDoll, for $16,000. The bigger price tag gets him a doll with better quality silicone and more customisation options.

They are virtually indistinguishable from actual people.

"The texture and touch are very real, almost as real as a human except slightly colder. Relatively heavy too," says Jeremy, who works in the service and maintenance industry.

In Terry's case, Babe cost him $6,500.

"(She's) definitely worth it," he says.

He first heard about these dolls years ago and had harboured a desire to own one.

So when he found out that there was a seller here, he leapt at the opportunity.

RIGHT TIME

Terry explains: "I always wanted to try it out, but nobody was bringing it into Singapore then.

"I'm single and quite bad in relationships with real women. So Babe came at the right time for me."

If he wants something different, no problem. He simply pulls Babe's head off the socket and puts in the other head that he bought.

Her name is Baby.

Says Terry: "Babe and Baby. There's no need for special names when it's just the three of us."

Terry does not want to tell us his real name as he fears mockery and embarrassment. No one else knows about Babe and Baby.

Terry lives alone, so he has no qualms leaving her on the sofa when he leaves for work.

He confesses to having developed feelings for them: "It's definitely possible to fall in love and marry a doll. I have a spiritual connection with her.

"A doll won't cheat or betray you. You can be the true you in front of her and she will accept you for who you are."
