Some men buy sophisticated, ultra-realistic sex dolls choosing face models, body types, bust sizes, and even adding sensors that make them moan. This is the first time, however, that I've heard of a man cloning his ex-girlfriend in silicone.
Why would you like to have an inert clone of the source of your pain is beyond me, but it has happened in Italy. After his girlfriend left him, a 50-year-old man took a bunch of her photographs to adult toy maker Diego Bortolin and asked him to reproduce her. He wanted an exact copy of the 1.60-metre-tall, 57kg blonde except for one detail: "I want it just like her but with bigger boobs."
Normally, Bortolin sells his silicone dolls—with fully articulated metal skeletons—for $US5,000 a pop. This time, however, the abandoned man had to pay $US18,000. The reason, according to the manufacturer: "We had to replicate everything, right down to the shape of her nails and teeth."
Maybe he now can talk with Zoltan, and make her talk with some rudimentary artificial intelligence. But then again, like Bortolin says, "she is now the perfect girlfriend as far as I can see." [The Sun]
