A man with an obssesssion with dolls married his doll and the two have been ‘happily married’ for 15 years.
Davecat, who has featured on shows like My Strange Addiction and the BBC documentary Guys and Dolls, is married to a life-like doll, Sidore Kuroneko.
Davecat bought his “wife” back in 2000 from Abyss Creations, a company that specializes in premium [intimacy] dolls. After a few years, he felt like his wife needed a friend to stare lifelessly at while he was at work, so in 2012 he bought a second doll named Elena. That doll also happens to be his mistress, which Davecat claims his wife is totally cool with.
Davecat is a 40-year-old data entry worker. He says he is happy to be with his doll which help him not deal with “humans’ inconsistencies,” like cheating, divorces, or pesky free will. According to an interview in The Atlantic, Davecat calls himself an iDollator, which is someone who sees their dolls as much more than just a sex toy.
But as Davecat said, “my reasons for purchasing her were 70 percent [intimacy], 30 percent companionship.” His friends are fine with it. His father has refused to buy into the whole thing but his mother seems to have accepted the fact that she’s never going to have grandchildren.
“Synthetik [sic] love lasts forever,” he said adding that they’re considering some sort of ceremony for their 15th anniversary. According to the back story of Davecat’s relationships, his Doll mistress (and Sidore’s girlfriend), Elena Vostrikova, saw Davecat and Sidore in Guys and Dolls and moved from Russia to be with them. Davecat purchased Elena, or Lenka, in 2012, and the three of them now share a one-bedroom apartment in southeastern Michigan.
“I’ve always been attracted to artificial women such as mannequins, and especially Gynoids, which are robots made in the likeness of human females. In late 1998 one of my best friends, showed me the RealDoll website, as she knew I was keen on artificial women. I thought they were gorgeous creations, and having one would not only dispel loneliness, but be excellent for [intimacy] as well. And I was right!”
Asked if he was always attracted to dolls, he replied saying, “Obviously, I’m [intimately] attracted to synthetic humans, such as Gynoids and Dolls, but the much larger part of their appeal is that they’re humans, but they don’t possess any of the unpleasant qualities that organic, flesh and blood humans have. A synthetic will never lie to you, cheat on you, criticize you, or be otherwise disagreeable. It’s rare enough to find organics who don’t have something going on with them, and being able to make a partner of one is rarer still.”
Davecat says he has been involved in human relationships before and still is attracted to women, human women. “I’d been in relationships with organic women prior to, and after, having Shi-chan enter my life. …. “I’m still quite attracted to organic women, at least visually. But just because someone’s attractive doesn’t mean they have a mindset or a personality that’s compatible with my own. I figure that instead of chasing after an ideal person who either doesn’t exist in the first place, or is already with someone else, why not buy a Doll? I don’t gamble, and I’m not keen on taking emotional chances. We’ve all seen relationships where things start out fantastically, and then just end up falling apart. A friend of mine just got divorced after 17 years of marriage. That’s an enormous investment of time, money, and emotion, and I’m not interested in having someone in my life who may bail at any time, or who transforms into someone unpleasant. Ultimately, getting romantically involved with an organic woman doesn’t seem worth it to me.”
He went ahead to add that purchasing a second doll, Elena was because of his ‘marriage’ agreement with his wife, Sidore. “My marriage to Sidore is open in the context of she allows me to do anything I want, as long as it’s only with a synthetic woman. Incidentally, those are the exact same conditions under which I’ll allow her to do anything extracurricular. Very straightforward, yet simple!”
