From Human-Anime Marriages to Mannequin Makeouts

Technology is so fast-developing that the concept of loneliness seems to be entirely passé; hence these inanimate fixations.

Arguably the most ground-breaking are robot technologies that mimic intimate human contact. What was previously thought to be taboo can now be explored and experimented with in the comfort of one’s own home.

To take this experimentation one step further, various items double as learning tools for specific activities. For instance, the notion of 'E-Kissing' involves items with lip-locking capabilities and tutorials for the novice smoocher. This proves that (although odd) inanimate fascination is purposefully useful.

From ‘Girlfriend Simulators’ to ‘Human-Amime Marriages’ the phrase “taking a relationship to the next commitment level” has an entirely new meaning.
