Lars and the Real Girl

In the future, everyone will either erase their memories of unpleasant breakups or entire relationships altogether (a la Eternal Sunshine) or they will just clone their exes and lock them in the closet so they can never be dumped again.

A businessman with $18K to blow figured the closest thing to either of those ideas — at least in 2010 — would be to visit an Italian sex doll-maker (kind of like this guy) and have his ex-girlfriend recreated from photos.

The 50-year-old man put together a collection of photos of his ex and told Italian adult toymaker Diego Bortolin: "I want it just like her but with bigger boobs", Italy's Il Messaggero newspaper said.

Mr Bortolin, who hasn't named the man, creates extremely realistic sex dolls at the factory behind his shop, named "Temptations" in English, in Treviso, Italy… "Our normal dolls are very realistic and everything works just like the real thing… we had to replicate everything, right down to the shape of her nails and teeth".

The doll weighs 58kg and is about 1.6m tall. Mr Bortolin said the doll is fully flexible and can take on any movement or position a human can. "She is now the perfect girlfriend as far as I can see," Mr Bortolin said. []

The. End.
