“You’re Dripping Egg” readers, comment on the BBC documentary “Guys and Dolls”, and the Real Doll phenomenon, here!

Posted on June 18, 2011


In 2010, editors Will Kay and Matilda Dixon-Smith were shown Guys and Dolls, a documentary about life-size “Real Doll” sex dolls, by a friend.

Back then, we were pretty effected by the whole phenomenon. Davecat became a reference in our everyday vernacular. The program, developed by the BBC, had a powerful impact. We all agreed that someone should review the documentary, and the Real Doll phenomenon—but none of us felt our review could encompass all that needed to be said.

We’re going to go to The Comments on this one. You’re Dripping Egg readers, YOU have the power to provide the directing voice. We’ve posted a link where you can view Guys and Dolls below; watch it and contribute your opinion in ‘Comments’.


Does Davecat scare the bejesus out of you, or do you want to just give him a big hug? Are you considering a Real Doll birthday party, like Michael? Does a career as a Doll Doctor appeal, or make you inwardly convulse? Are you thinking that having a Real Doll would be a FANTASTIC idea?? Whatever your opinion, post it below, and battle it out with the other YDE readers for viewpoint supremacy.

Michael and his dolls…

N.B.: The documentary needs an 18+ verification on Youtube, and the concept is a little icky, so make sure you’re up for it before you click on the link. That being said, if Matilda can watch it, most of you can!
