Cuddle Power



Today the BBC reported how Japanese women are buying the ultimate sleeping partner. As the picture illustrates it's a pillow with a 'built in comfort' to cuddle up to. It's shaped like a man's torso but is guaranteed not to snore or disturb them in the middle of the night.
Apparently, they have been selling in droves and Japanese women say they are good for well-being! For more information see here.

Michelle, can't beat a cuddle or a hug.
Of course we are all partial to who we cuddle or who we hug, and who we want to be hugged or cuddled by.

Not sure I want an electronic cuddle though, anymore than an electronic pet or kid (child). But I guess the techno advanced Japs have something of the Borg in them.

In the meantime here's a hug and a smile flowing your way. Wishing you a fine day, this friday evening
and a great weekend!

Do they make a reciprocal one for men - one you can have your arms around as you fall asleep?

Ellee said...

I've heard about this. It says a lot about the numbers of lonely women in Japan.

Maalie, stick to the real thing, Q9 is right, you can't beat the real thing...

The real thing is much better. On the other hand if 'sleep' is the issue, rather than non-sleep activities, then I am an inveterate pillow hugger. On the other hand, considering the chauvinism intrinsic with Japanese males,I can understand why their women would rather hug something non-human. They might get some actual affection that way.

Peter Smallbone said...

Men really are redundant now.

SeaSpray said...

Aww - I think that is a neat idea. :)

Liz said...

That's brilliant! How simple and how inventive!

I like to cuddle before sleeping but need to be unfettered when I go to sleep. In fact I kick Husband aside if I think his leg is creeping onto my half.

Hmmmm ... this could being a whole new meaning to my "toy" collection. If he'd pay all the bills too - I'd marry it.

I think I was trying to type "bring" in the above post.

See ... I was so excited that I couldn't type.

Good - well done, Japanese women. That's the first step to throwing off this feminist nonsense - to recognize you need someone to cuddle up to t night. Now they only need take the next step - a real man, for whom a bolster is no substitute and the process will be complete. :)

Your commenter's had me chuckling Michelle. Don't fear men, there are no replacements for the real thing...although the no snoring issue sounds like it might be a threat. ;)

James said...

Ellee said...

Michelle, Have you got locked in an embrace?
