Realistic “Dutch Wives” And Otaku Culture

What is your opinion on ultra-realistic Dutch Wives? Do you think they're affecting our image as fans of anime and Japanese culture? And most importantly, do you want one?

The otaku poster boy and stereotype for those of us who love anime is the ever dishonorable hikikomori. Never leaving our rooms, never bathing and will always be forever alone.

“How can I be alone if I have my 500¬†waifus?”

We’re all trying to fight this stereotype but Japanese sex toy makers aren’t really helping. A company called Orient Love Dolls are selling ultra-realistic “Dutch Wives”, a major step up from our dakimakura pillow days. They pride themselves in making their dolls very “human-like”.

Their ads even boast that anybody who buys one will never want a real girlfriend again.

The dolls are made of silicon, which mimics the feeling of skin insanely closely. Everything is also customizable – you can choose her bust size, hair color, eyes, moveable fingers, and even the texture of the inside of her naughty bits.

“Yes, I would like eyes that stare into my soul and judge me in my sleep.”

The company already caught the eye of western media a couple of years ago and those articles are resurfacing on imageboards and sites like Reddit, and people are understandably divided.

They also come with a selection of clothes so you don’t even have to step out of your room to buy some.

Some embrace the concept of a Dutch Wife, especially for lonely men who have zero social skills and some are blaming it, among other things, for Japan’s declining population. And let’s not forget how some western outlets already blame Japanese media for pedophilia. I’m sure some of these products aren’t helping to change their minds anytime soon.

Be right back, someone’s knocking aggressively at my door.

What is your opinion on ultra-realistic Dutch Wives? Do you think they’re affecting our image as fans of anime and Japanese culture? And most importantly, do you want one? Maybe something more anime-like is more your taste.
