Posted on 03/09/2010 7:12:35 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
True love can take many forms. In this case, it has taken the form of a Korean man falling in love with, and eventually marrying, a large pillow with a picture of a woman on it.
Lee Jin-gyu fell for his 'dakimakura' - a kind of large, huggable pillow from Japan, often with a picture of a popular anime character printed on the side.
In Lee's case, his beloved pillow has an image of Fate Testarossa, from the 'magical girl' anime series Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha.
Now the 28-year-old otaku (a Japanese term that roughly translates to somewhere between 'obsessive' and 'nerd') has wed the pillow in a special ceremony, after fitting it out with a wedding dress for the service in front of a local priest. Their nuptials were eagerly chronicled by the local media.
'He is completely obsessed with this pillow and takes it everywhere,' said one friend.

WHAT’S NEXT INFLATABLE DOLLS.....PING!!!
She has quite a figure.
Are there men pillows?
Did he date the bed sheets first?
That is a new level of pathetic.
I would take that pillow over zero’s wookie.
Next I predict dakimakura will get a restraining order when Lee Jin-gyu starts a pillow fight.
Obsessive and nerd doesn’t even begin to describe this.
I guess he can use the carpool lane now with his wife.
“Pillow like” but not as “fluffy”??
Is that acceptable?
My wife and I have been thinking about learning Japanese, just for fun. Perhaps I should rethink that.....
Very, very sad
I don’t even want to think about their honeymoon.
The pillow is better dressed than this bride adn I bet his wedding didn’t cost 150,000.
Have the Koreans skewed the male / female ratio by gender-specific abortion as have the Chinese?
Not even Epic Beard Man could straighten out this poor feller.
This story should be shown to everyone with low self-esteem.
PS. The bride I posted the link to is so scantily dressed I am stunned that a church allowed her inside for the ceremony.
Yes, they live in Washington DC near M street.
The guy is a pedophile!
It won’t last.
I’ll bet she divorces him and takes all his sheet.
YEAH, BABY! See more a link above.
Cheaper sex dolls are inflatable, using air. These lower price-range (less than $50) dolls are usually made of welded vinyl, and bear only a passing resemblance to women or men, but they have an artificial vagina or penis and their users are willing to overlook their shortcomings. They often burst at the seams after a few uses, although they are commonly given as gag gifts and therefore many may not use them at all.
At the middle market price-range ($100 to $200), dolls are made of heavy latex without welded seams, have plastic mannequin-style heads and styled wigs, plastic or glass eyes, and properly moulded hands and feet. Some contain water-filled body areas such as the breasts or buttocks. The manufacturing process causes most latex dolls to be delivered with a fine coating of zinc oxide covering the skin, which is usually removed by the consumer by placing the doll under the shower. Otherwise, latex is an inert and non-toxic natural material; although a tiny percentage of users may discover a latex allergy.
More expensive sex dolls ($600 to $7,000 or more) are usually made from silicone. They can be very lifelike, with face and body modelled on real people, with realistic skin material (similar to that used for movie special effects), and with realistic (or even real) hair. These dolls usually have an articulate PVC or metal skeleton with flexible joints that allows them to be positioned in a variety of positions for display and for sexual acts. Silicone sex dolls are obviously heavier than inflatable ones (which consist mostly of air), but are about half the weight of a real human of comparable size.
ping or not
Not knowing M Street, I shudder to think it might be like Santa Monica Blvd. out here!
Her dress looks just fine .... for the Honeymoon night..
You know that's not a girl, its a cartoon character.
There was a young man name Gene
Who invented a sex machine
Concave or convex
It fit either sex
And was very simple to clean
Inter-racial marriages are frowned upon in Korea.

Ding, dangit! I was apostin’ ta BunnySlippers.
Surely now we can withdraw our troops from S Korea? After all, who wants to be the last soldier to be deployed overseas for...a pillow?
What can you say? He loves a good bleached blonde in satin.
I’ll bet they don’t get out of the bed their whole honeymoon.
Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I’ve written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I’d always missed with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can’t say anymore.
‘Cos I love you, yes I love you, oh how I love you.
Yes! I present to you the Man Arm Pillow made in Japan.
The Japanese are so fun!
I’m speechless. And thats not easy for me.
I don’t know but if they get into a spat, could it be called a “pillow fight”?
I saw some weird **** in Japan
Wow that was like looking at another universe.
How long before this guy becomes one of Obama’s Czars. Sounds like he would fit right in with the rest of the flakes.
