I just think its weird that some people take them out to restaurants and bars. Only God knows what they've done with it.

Honestly, yes. It's kind of creepy.
But then again, not few people get turned on by looking at attractive anime characters. Well, it's their right whatever they wanna do with it. Just don't show it in public, unless they're fine being judged a weirdo.

People express their obsession differently. So if I were to know someone irl who had one of those pillows, yes I would think they are weird, but at the same time I'd be pretty relieved, and glad knowing I'm not the only one who allows mere fictional characters impact their lives.

I personally don't think there's anything wrong with them at all, at least they're not life-size dolls, lol!

I own one, but it's really just a pillow. The only time I touch it is when I toss it off to the side so I can sleep. To me, it's just an oversized pillow with a printed picture of something I like.

The most annoying thing about dakimakura is the way many people think those with them are weird and that those who do strange things with them have "severe issues". I'm pretty sure if you love an inanimate object enough to put your trouser snake in it, you're either under-sexed or simply desperate. At what point does this constitute as a severe issue? I'd much rather people make love to pillows than go out and rape someone or worse.

To each their own, quite seriously. Whether you have a dakimakura because of the comfort it gives you (holding something at night is a simulation of being an infant and does provide a LOT of security and comfort) or because you have no other way of making your waifu real, that is your choice.

If you ask me, people who love their pillows are smarter than people who love another person. At least a pillow will never cheat on you! That and it means they'll never reproduce, easing the strain on the planet some.

Oops!

Put the wrong answer...

No, I don't find it weird

In fact, I'd buy one if I wasn't so poor...

If I saw this guy I'd probably feel awkward for him, but I don't evaluate the psyche of people based on something so arbitrary.

Still, it does make me a bit uncomfortable, especially in this context.

Edit: now somebody has to explain to that girl what a dakimakura is.

Yeah. It is a bit... creepy. I mean, it's an image on a pillow..
I would understand as a gag toy or something not seriously taken; but for those who actually desire the character that much?
Eh.... To each his own.

I love em, and got one for my boyfriend of Yoko from Gurren Lagaan. They're nice to cuddle, usually good quality, and its a little bit of anime fandom that's all your own. Sure, people make it to outrageous extremes, which is sad, but hey, what can be done.

I'm a girl, and I have 2 bootleg dakimakura covers, one of Shana and of Aria (Hidan no Aria). To me, it's merely decorating my plain body pillow with an adorable anime girl I like~ Nothing creepy about it.

If you don't overdue it... like using it just as a pillow and that is all... that's fine for me... but do the creepy stuff that I have heard has been done with them... then yeah... imo get some help... that can't be healthy mental behavior... I know my friends think they are weird even when just as a pillow... but really its nothing different than getting some Specialty sheets/pillow covers of some video game (say like Mario or whatever)... now given the ones that have half nudes or fully nude characters on them can look questionable... but eh... i've seen worse... just don't marry your damn pillow or do weird stuff too it and I won't judge.
