John describes the intimate relationship with his doll as something “like playing an instrument,” in that he must be in tune with her in order to accomplish pleasure for both of them.
He enjoys sex with her tremendously, but also feels that he is helping her discover her own sexuality.
He takes his photography seriously, saying that “the chief advantages of working with dolls is that they are infinitely patient, completely non-judgmental, and do not have health or feeding requirements.” Feodora is Terry’s third doll.
Before her, he owned a pair of inflatable dolls, but decided to change to a more realistic silicone reproduction of the now-retired porn start Tera Patrick.
“Having a synthetic partner is something than can eliminate loneliness for thousands of people and make them happy, yet it’s an option that’s generally seen as bad or weird,” says Davecat.
For him, sex with a doll is not deviant, but a sexual preference that needs to be understood and accepted by others, even if it takes time.
John loves animals and has learned quite a bit about the various exotic inhabitants of the zoo.
He sees sharing his knowledge and passion with her as one of the most important aspects of his relationship.
After a tough time dating real women, and one particularly bad breakup, Davecat decided to look into dolls on a friend’s suggestion.
In winter, he tries to put some color into her style while allowing her to still be sexy.
“I do not view dolls or real women as sex objects, but as people, each with their own particular beauty,” says Terry.
Cuddling is as far as it goes between him and Feodora. “It would involve undressing them, having sex, cleaning myself, cleaning them, and finally getting both of us dressed again. If I want sexual relief, masturbation is a lot easier and quicker.” Besides, he says, “I have very little interest in sex” — which is one of the factors that led to his divorce.
Davecat is a forty-two-year-old data-entry professional who lives in a suburb of Detroit.
The entire apartment is a cozy little love nest where Davecat’s intimate interactions take place.
