That is the creepiest as fuck thing I’ve seen for a very long time.

Oh, if only that were it. Have you met people? Ew…

If it helps, the studio’s notes are pushing it away from horror and more towards a 90’s style erotic thriller

That expression is not half-asleep. It’s actively dying from shame over what comes next.

I wonder if the folks who need a “man” around even if it’s just a stuffed animal would be disappointed to find out that it only stands at 5’7" and not a “full six feet”? :man_shrugging:

Eh. I think I’m past the point of making fun of people for whom this thing would meet some emotional need.

It’s deeply aesthetically weird, but so are a lot of things designed for emotional or physical support. And it carries less problematic gendered baggage than, say, a Real Doll or whatever.

(Still a ‘no’ re the film, thanks. Isn’t ‘erotic thriller’ tautologous? I mean, if it’s erotic and there’s no thrill, someone’s not doing it right, eh?)
