So Your Husband Has a Virtual Girlfriend? And She’s Not Real? Hmmm…

husband has a virtual girlfriend

Check out this interesting interview by Lisa Katayama with a man – who, for a short time, courted a high school aged anime character – and his wife who is all “ooooookay… as long as he doesn’t spend way too much time doing that”-ish. Love the humanity of it all and this very common-sense way that the couple responds.

    I don’t understand peoples interest in anime / manga / cartoon pron or relationships with cartoons. I know internet gals who write of an interest in this lolicon pron and I don’t see why it is more interesting that watching REAL people do it.

    I had a female Internet friend who was really stressed out because her emo boyfriend was addicted to cartoon anime pron. She said that she felt heart sick that she was a REAL gal, who was ready and willing to give him crazy sex, but that he would sit there while she was in the room and look at anime pron and masturbate. It would only take me about 2 seconds to eject someone like that from the ballgame.
