To all the lonely ladies out there, don’t worry cause there is hope. A new pillow just hit the market and it’ll make those sad lonely nights a thing of the past. So say so long to those cold nights where you wished you had someone to hug and cuddle. Instead, it’s time for a celebration because even though you couldn’t find a Mr. Right doesn’t mean this hug pillow isn’t right for you.
Look how comfortable this woman looks reading a book with this sexy pillow hugging her back. She’s the envy of all her friends.
Now if there is anyone to thank for this boyfriend pillow, it’s a recent college graduate named Shirane. According to Sora News 24, Shirane created this model for her graduation project for Tokyo’s Ochanomizu Institute of Art.
And it was a smash hit, as her colleagues asked her where they can purchase one for their lonely selves. Shirane dubbed her new creation the “Oppai Pillow” and started a crowdfunded campaign on Motion Gallery to mass produce these comforters. It wasn’t long before she hit her target goal of $4,200 with anyone paying $93 to buy one. With over 50 days remaining, her campaign has made over $16.5 thousand. The only downside is you’ll have to wait until October to receive your hug. However, due to the immense buzz of this pillow, other companies have taken notice. The old adage is that imitation follows success, so other companies are already creating and selling the man pillow.
It is unknown at this time what the hug pillow will be made of. Obviously, it won’t be as hard as a real-life six pack, but Shirane hasn’t released what materials she would be using. Of course, it’ll be soft but stiff in the right areas.
The best part about these pillows is that they don’t come with a head. No head means no eyes. And that’s a great thing because the last thing you want to see is some chump giving you the side eye.
So forget Bumble, Tinder, friends that know friends, and family members who could set you up. These pillows are the next boyfriend. We all can’t fall in love with another human being. That’s impossible, so a doll will have to do. It’s the only way to true romance.
