Sex mannequins

With their long glossy hair, heavy make-up and perfect skin, at first glance these glamourous women appear to make the perfect companions.

But look a little closer and their vacant stares give away the fact that they are in fact astonishingly realistic silicone love dolls, which sell for upwards of £1,000.

Their owners, who enjoy long-term relationships with the dolls, were captured on camera by Copenhagen-based photojournalist Benita Marcussen, who approached the men via online forums – one of the only places where many of them can be open about their dolls – and spent nearly a year gaining their trust before photographing them for her series Men & Dolls.

For some of the owners, the life-sized dolls are their sole companion, others are married with children, and in a few cases the dolls have filled the space left by lost loved ones following death or divorce.

One of the family: Carl, (right), 56, lives with his parents, Geoffrey and Doreen and his doll Alektra. He was divorced from his wife 20 years ago and did try dating, but after eight years still had not met the right woman, sparking his interest in dolls. He bought the first one in 1998, and although he still has her she is packed away. Alektra, who is modelled on American porn actress Alektra Blue, is his latest purchase. Carl does not have a sexual relationship with Alektra and does not see her as a girlfriend, but solely as a doll who he likes to photograph but who will never be able to replace a real woman. He is still hoping to meet the love of his life.
