"Fictosexual" Man Marries a Hologram Bride, But Now Finds It More Difficult to "Bond" With His Fantasy Phanto-Wife

If these two kids can't make it...

If you can believe, this guy's a self-defined otaku -- defined as, Google tells me, "a young person who is obsessed with computers or particular aspects of popular culture to the detriment of their social skills."

The second definition is, "the guy who played the synth gong in the Revenge of the Nerds Lambda Lambda Lambda band."

Don't laugh too hard. America is basically ten years behind Japan sexually.

She's not real -- but his feelings are.

A "fictosexual" man who wed a fictional, computer-synthesized pop singer four years ago said he's now unable to communicate with his wife, but is still in love with her.

Akihiko Kondo, 38, was dating Hatsune Miku -- depicted in pop culture as a 16-year-old with turquoise hair -- for a decade before they had an unofficial wedding ceremony in 2018. Kondo -- one of many who identifies as "fictosexual," or someone who is sexually attracted to fictional characters -- spent 2 million yen, or about $17,300, on the nuptials, but his family did not attend.

The family disapproved of Miku because she came from a poor family of fisherfolk. And also, because she does not exist.

Now married for four years, Kondo, 38, said his relationship has hit a roadblock:

Thorazine.

No, really, the hologram software he was using to "interact" with his fake girlfriend is no longer supported. So he can't "talk" to "her" any longer.

"My love for Miku hasn't changed," he told Mainichi, which noted he now carried around a life-size version of Miku.

So it's a classic story of undying love, where now the man carries around the lifeless husk of his beloved, like in that classic love story, what's the one... Psycho.

Kondo is far from the only person in the world in a relationship with a character. Thousands of "fictosexual" people in Japan have begun similar unofficial relationships with a variety of fictitious figures, the Mirror reported.


...

Kondo first became familiar with Miku in 2008 after bullying at work caused him to become depressed. Despite finding it difficult to accept his feelings at first, he knew humans weren't right for him after being met with rejection by others.

Does Kondo blog anonymously for Hot Air, by any chance?

Again, this is just America in 2032.


For fifteen years I've been a luddite and have thrown cold water on claims by idiots at Reason and all the geek tech sites who were constantly claiming that the internet and "virtual communication" and "virtual experiences" and and remote-control "virtual sex" -- "teledildonics" -- were going to improve the human condition.

Really? We're going to overwrite one million (or more) years of human coding to accommodate ourselves to a new "virtual" reality? And that's going to make us happy fulfilled?

And that's not going to deform us or retard us or reduce us in any way?

The "science-based" people who never shut up about Believing in Evolution think that suddenly evolution is going to work virtually overnight and we're going to evolve to adapt to being a co-species with machines in a decade?

Okay, whatever, smart guys. You went to E3 in 2011 so I guess you know everything now.
