A 40-year-old man in Michigan has married a synthetic doll -- and has another as a mistress because he doesn't want to be involved with a real woman.
The man and his two dolls live together in a one-bedroom apartment. He said he doesn't have to worry about the relationship ending and the dolls will never cheat on him.
The man is considered a technosexual, someone who is attracted to robots and can have a meaningful relationship with them. He and the dolls have matching wedding bands that say, "Synthetik love lasts forever".
He said the dolls have become girlfriends but they are bisexual and still have sex with him.
He has also made up background stories for them. He said he met his "wife" Sedore at a goth club in 2000 and Elena moved from Russia after she saw him in a documentary.
The dolls cost $6,000 each. He said he bought them mostly for sex but also for company.
The man said his mother is OK with the situation, but his father refuses to talk about it.
