Who says I am alone? Lol. The whole purpose of this type of product is to allow your partner, who may or may not be right next to you at the moment, to "interact" with you. And anyways, I am actually a fan of targeted marketing. Marketers are going to show me ads one way or the other. They might as well show me ads that have a decent probability of being relevant. I dunno, maybe this perspective puts me in a minority, but I'm just trying to be pragmatic about it.

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart

It's not something I would buy but I can fathom a market for it.

Actually, it reminds me of an episode of the Drew Carey show...

I donno what you guy'es problem is with this. I think it's a fun idea?

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
