Dolls that we see marketed as adult dolls are way beyond mere sex-dolls, being effigies of the human form that bring, to those who are receptive, an understanding of "other" and an enlightenment that transforms.

In south-east England on a sunny day some doll forum members met together http://coverdoll.com/drupal/node/2190 and had some fun. So did our toy ladies. http://coverdoll.com/drupal/node/2217 We were able to demonstrate an interesting leap of mind that these dolls enable us to achieve.

We started with two dolls made out of cheaper TPE material rather than more long-lasting silicone. We photographed them separately and then together. They stayed aloof as we moved to the silicone dolls.

The dolls have names to which they are referred by the manufacturers and for the purposes of this thread I might use them. The three DS ladies naturally grouped together. We photographed them individually and then in a group. A 4Woods lady called Lissa stayed rather aloof.

Certainly it was interesting to me to see two of the DS dolls, Se Re Na and Na Na Se together for the first time comparing her with Neri who was sculpted at the same time as Na Na Se . . .  Se Re Na seems to look as though she might be Na Na Se's mother.

One of the dolls held the reflector for some of the shots which saved us a pair of hands

We then put Na Na Se and Neri together and photographed them looking at the view, with Thera, including Lissa. Lissa was dressed in another dimension from our ordinary girls so we couldn't really mix them in the group. We were looking at the DS faces and bodies, comparing and contrasting.

Lissa then moved and had her grand portrait taken and one of the TPE dolls, Becca, was inspired by the pilasters in the background. In her screen life in stories illustrated by her owner, Beca is a tourist guide.

With Lissa and Beca photographed individually and together, we either did the tea shot next with Se Re Na or else a scene of Lissa playing chess shot inside followed by a group photograph of all the dolls which had been brought in from outside.

So what's really interesting about this is that it's very nearly the same story as the narrative that it's possible to construct for the girls.

So we can see easily how our world-view and story translates into the story in Doll World.

However, being so Regal she was so still the rest of the time the girls thought that she was only a doll dressed up. But in her finest of clothes she was quite entertaining for the girls to look at,

Beca explaining how startled she had been to have such an important visitor to look after..

The Queen, however, retreated to her allotted apartment and played chess with herself, distracted by the view out of the window wondering where her game of life would lead her next . . .

In the meantime whilst Lissa is playing chess, musing over her next Regal move is our group photo of the girls chatting together about what an exciting day they had had - or as actors at the end of the opera.

So perhaps it's interesting to see the way in which men playing with dolls might at first seem eccentric or banale but in fact can lead to viewing life from the other point of view.

It's great when we see others inspired!

Best wishes
