I woke up this morning and turned the tv to HLN News, and this was the first news story I heard. Apparently he meet her when she was just a head, and he was in an orphanage home. The head told him to find a body for her.

As long as he doesn't hurt anyone then I don't care....but that thing just creeps me out. The hands look like their about to jump out and grab you! What are your thoughts?

Agreed. In my experience this is far from what I would call sick or disgusting. Eccentric? Yup. Different? Yup. Weird? Well, that's the question isn't it. It's not to him, but it is as in society, becoming intimately involved with an inanimate object goes against our genetic wiring to propagate the species. By default anything that goes against that precept would be perceived as "weird". Granted, I did shake my head when I first heard about this and thought "only in western NY" (Patriots88888 can testify to that statement).

As far as sick and disgusting, I would define that as someone who is engaging in some form of sexual fetish that actually has detrimental harm to the community in some form. Such as necrophilia, rape and torture, murder and then fornicating with the remains in various states of decay, pedophilia, etc.

So, calling a guy who has an infatuation with a fake human sick, isn't the worst thing on the list of weird things out there.

I think it's weird because the mannequin isn't a sentient being and cannot return his feelings so I don't see how that could be a real relationship. He's obviously imagining a personality for the mannequin himself, which brings me to my concern that his grip on reality is tenuous and what happens if the mannequin starts telling him to kill people? But as long as he doesn't hurt anyone else he can do what he wants and I don't care.

The human mind is far too complex to assume that just because he's personifying a mannequin that his grip on reality is teetering on the edge of schiztophrenia. It's been determined that this is another fetish that is not generally associated with psychosis or schizophrenia.

I don't know, this definitely seems like one of those cases where after the fact everyone says, "We should have seen it coming." XD He's imagining conversations with the mannequin and believes that the conversations are real and she's actually talking to him. Even if that's not schizophrenia, it's definitely some kind of delusion or hallucination.

As far as I know, marriage to objects isn't legally recognized. If he really got married to the mannequin when he said he did, he would have been 13, so it's doubly not legal because he was too young to get married anyway.

Yeah. I don't want to sound too harsh here (I'd probably get along with him just fine :p) but I don't understand why people are so quick to write him off as harmless and go places with him when they don't really know him that well (the article implies people are seeking him out to get their pictures taken and whatnot just because they've seen him online).

Could he have put a bigger 'chest' on that thing?


eta: Of course he's not "married" to it. Just because you call something your "wife" doesn't mean you're (legally) married to it.

..... which brings me to my concern that his grip on reality is tenuous and what happens if the mannequin starts telling him to kill people? .This is where the danger lies because this may not just be a mannequin, but actually a golem.

History and legend has had a long association with golems, which are non-real 'bodies' that were made in human form which can become a 'body' for a bodyless spirit still on earth, to inhabit it.

It might not move but it can talk into ones mind, and according to legend some can move, but requires spells to do so.

The bit about 'the head telling him to get a body for it', seemed to me a warning, that a disemboded spirit had taken it over. They go for the lonely type of person desperate for love and kindness, not really having a family life as such.

From my upbringing of my relatives dealing in the entertainment buisness associated with magic tricks, illusion and spiritulism and sprit guides, going back to the vauderville acts in the late 19th century, we in our family being very sensitive to spirits, were always taught protection by knowing the first lesson on the dangers of the spiritual world....... the spiritual plane can hold good, but also very bad, malicious, tricksters and downright evil and demonic spirits.

Things like you must never use a Weegi board (Ouija board) unless you know the safeguards and never build a golem, as the negative side of spirits are attracted to such things and can take over. Laugh if you wish but there are many dangers to your body, mind and your very soul, as some people have found out to their cost.

This poor guy has started with a voice in his head, and it may just be that he is generating it in his subconcious and 'hearing' his 'so called wifes' voice, but it may be more than that, as a disembodied spirit can get into ones mind, and infulence it.

Then the guy can no longer tell if its his voice or anothers, due to their long interaction of years, eventually the golem can take control, and could lead to him obeying it, and even killing people if it asks for that.

Spiritualism is a very dangerous subject, and anyone dealing with it, must know the great dangers involved, and building a golem is definately not a good thing to do.

Even if you scoff at this, I urge you never to deal with such things, especially weegie boards, as you open up a portal to spirits.

This world is not just black and white, there are shades of grey in it. You have been warned ;)

Yeah, that's what I was getting at. I don't think anyone should bother the guy of course (just let him be as long as he's not hurting anyone) but at the same time it's definitely worrisome that he really believes this mannequin is talking to him and is a real person. He acknowledges she's made of wood and not flesh, but he still insists that she's real.

He's not saying she's real just because he can't find a human woman and is stuck with a mannequin. He's with the mannequin in the first place because he really believes she's a sentient person who loves him.

JAPANESE DOLL BURNING CERMONY
Another interesting point about loving a doll or maniquin, is that the Japanese have a burning cermony for dolls, toy pandas, any body shaped toy, etc.

This is because some believe that a spirit can inhabit them due to the emotional love put on them over their time with children.

The doll will be handed in by the owners (maybe now adults) and want the dolls spirit released.

To release the spirit within the body of the doll, the burning cermony allows the fire to free the trapped spirit. Well thats their thinking.

You can google this Japanese doll burning on the internet, I am not sure if any other race on earth still do this.

Sex I can understand... I find it more strange when people have these mannequins, or real dolls, and treat them like real women; dress them up, take them out, talk to them, claim that there is mutual "love" between them, etc. The doll can easily be used as a sexual release... and it's even understandable that the more real it looks and feels can enhance that physical pleasure. It can in no way shape or form "love" you or be a true "companion" however. That's a whole other level of imagination replacing reality.

e2d54NRdJno

There does seem to be a difference between these men in the video and the man in the OP though. Obviously the video is just a clip of a longer show, but from what I saw, these men don't have conversations, where their dolls talk to to them and tell them to do stuff. These men appear to accept that their dolls are dolls and aren't real. It's a fetish for lonely men, I guess. Maybe for the man in the OP, it is a fetish too, But it comes across as more than that. 'She' told him to build her a body. He really believes she loves him as he loves her. It seems more than what the men in the video have.

I feel sad for him actually. Fetish or mental illness that never got looked into in his childhood (he was in an orphanage). It seems to me like he was neglected as a child and this led him to seek comfort in the only thing he found. A doll head. The illness just got worse. He needs treatment, imo, not ridiculing or to be called 'disgusting'.

And I identify strongly with the ways in which they've been hurt in their attempts at forming real relationships with fickle people and their desire to construct worlds in which this never happens again. Their love for inanimate objects says a great deal about their yearning for acceptance, infinite, perfect, and dare I say it, divine love.

There is an old Spanish movie of the recently deceased Jose Luis Lopez Vazquez.
