Also, he says they are 12" x 8". There is NO WAY those pillows are smaller than my computer screen.

The one in the first photo posted in the original article certainly looks much bigger.

Yeah, if that sucker is only 12x8, then that's the smallest folding chair in existence. I think "Eric" might just be full of shit....

How does one fuck a pillow anyway? Is it like dry humping? Is there a hole in it?

Here's an otaku's POV on why everyone needs a thneed:

A dakimakura is probably known as one of the creepiest things any otaku can own, but why is that so? Well, it might be due the fact that they are often associated with some sort of blow up dolls and thought of as mere sex toys by the society. Those of us who actually own a dakimakura would mostly disagree with that, in fact, let me tell you 5 reasons why everyone should own a dakimakura, even Sayaka has one.

1. So soft, it makes your girlfriend jealous [YEAH, RIGHT! --SQUID]
You heard me, after all, a dakimakura is only a normal body pillow with a custom printed cover over it. Now imagine a hard day at work or school. Who wouldn't want to lay down on their bed and hug and squeeze something soft to relax a little? I know I would. The fabric is usually very smooth, almost silky and the stuffing can be just as soft as you want it, even softer than your girlfriend.

2. Incredibly cute
Dakimakura covers are incredibly well drawn and very cute. Ever since we are young, we like to hug and squeeze things when we go to bed, so why not squeeze something cute and enjoy your sleep together with your favorite anime character? With so many designs out there, noone is forcing you to get a nude girl printed on it, you can choose anything you want, from fully dressed to a pure ero dakimakura, whatever spins your wheels.

3. A girl? Not a problem!
Who said dakimakuras are only for guys? I am sure all you girls have a favorite female character of your own that you would very much enjoy cuddling with. No? Don't give up yet, there are also quite a few girl dakimakuras out there with your favorite male characters printed on them. Actually, you could as well order a completely custom cover with Hello Kitty printed on it if you wanted to! Go for it!

4. It's good for you!
Believe it or not, body pillows are actually great for people suffering from back problems. They offer support to your body and help you relieve the pain. They are often used by women during pregnancy. You don't believe me? Google it!

5. Lonely or sad? The solution is right here!
We all get a bit lonely and depressed sometimes, and what better is there to do than squeeze up to something, relax and get over it. So why not that something be your favorite anime character? I can assure you, it helps!

There you go! Having a dakimakura is really not that creepy. You might get a strange look or two, especially if yours is a bit ecchi like mine are, but that's about it. It is something anyone can enjoy, regardless of your age or gender, the cute print is just a bonus.

We're supposed to believe only a select view choose to date them, marry them or wildly hump them, but I think the evidence is a bit more damning than that.

Jude, you once said you couldn't stand to let Amy throw away the kids' old stuffed animals because of how it would hurt their feelings (the toys, not the kids). Surely you can identify with this level of animism, or anthropomorphism? It's not a far leap from believing a stuffed dog has an interior life to believing your pillow has romantic feelings for you.
