Well, a Man Needs a Hobby...

WTF? Spotted this on the best of 'No County for Old Men' last night. (Unsurprisingly they were in Herefordshire).

60-year-old Bob Gibbins, and his wife Lizzie, 55, have a rather unusual collection of 240 different kinds of love dolls that they like dressing up and taking on shopping trips.


Bob says he has always been interested in dolls, but his passion really started to develop when he used to buy rag dolls and other toys for his two kids. He then moved on to buying shop mannequins for a few years and amassing a pretty impressive collection, but it wasn’t until he found an online forum about silicone dolls that he realized that’s what he really wanted to collect. With the help of his wife, Gibbins acquired his first silicone doll, Beverly, in 2007, for around $4,000. But that was only the beginning, as the couple continued to buy different kinds of love dolls, from cheap blow-up dolls costing $639 at most, to realistic silicone dolls like Jessica, who put a serious $11,202 dent in the family budget. All in all, Bob and Lizzie Gibbins estimate they’ve spent around $160,000 since they started collecting love dolls.

You’re probably wondering what someone does with 240 dolls and mannequins, especially when they live in a not so spacious bungalow. Well, according to the wacky couple, they love dressing up the dolls, washing them and fixing them up so they look their best, and since they’re both very picky about their dolls’ appearance, this takes up a lot of their time. Silicone dolls are apparently very needy; they sweat and need to be washed regularly, which can be a problem considering they’re pretty heavy, but Bob and his wife spare no effort tending to their precious collection.

Bob has also opened a free forum for love doll enthusiasts like him, and he posts lots of his photos of his girls there. In fact, him and Lizzie often take the dolls on walks and trips around Herefordshire, in the nearby Black Mountains, and even on shopping trips. They take photos during these outings and then used them as the storyline for their forum posts.

Although love dolls are usually bought and used for sexual purposes, Bob says he has never used one of his girls in such a way. He admits he finds most of them attractive, especially since he says they were created with perfect physical assets, but he considers them all part of the family. He likes to collect dolls and that’s as far as it goes. The most incredible part is Lizzie never had a problem with this bizarre arrangement. She says she doesn’t do this just to please her husband, but because it is a passion they both actually share and that’s allowed them to spend a lot of time together, which didn’t normally happen when Bob worked as a mechanic.

'

Went into a sex shop in Sydney. Hanging up on the wall was Inflatey Katey in a maids outfit with a blindfold and handcuffs on. One wonders what the reasoning was there.

Below the doll was a table covered in "used" stick mags.

I recall a similar documentary to this one being shown sometime in last couple of years, and that garnered a fair degree of open minded- non-judgemental and very liberal comments on this site. Oh, ffs, I can't type that with a straight face!
Anyway, this program featured some very strange men, mostly in USA, and who seemed to live on farms in remote areas, taking these dolls out, having them at dinner parties and generally behaving as if they were live, sentient beings. ( the dolls, not the loons). I suppose a link could be found to the thread, if anyone was clever enough, competent enough or sad enough to care.

He wants to get his money back for that one in the first picture second from the right!

Just noticed his skull and crossbones braces - I bet he has a cellar where he takes 'naughty' dolls.

I bet these pair are a fucking laugh a minute.
Imagine being out for a sunny walk (or a tab in the pissing rain in Wales) and you just pass a middle age couple and their young daughter sitting on a bench, as they get up to leave, you see the old man has drugged the young woman as she is all limp and being carried over his shoulder.......fucking freaks.
He's get his cunt kicked in carrying on like that down my way, I'd save the young woman only to find its a fucking rubber doll, I'd be left with no choice but to kick its back doors in, and leave it with a face like a painters radio in front of the horrified couple who just see it as part of their family.

And there's no way he hasn't smashed at least 1 of them while his missus has been out.

You're right, the cross-eyed one looks like her. God, I lusted after her. (Karen Black, not the doll).

Presumably if he wants a bit of man-on-silicone action he'd use the oil from a tin of sardines for that authentic lubrication experience?

Perhaps it was for hire along with the gash mags?

The manufacturers provide a lube.Either with or without spermicide.
I'm not sure either.
