Back in August of 2009 the Consumerist featured a New York Times article about a growing Japanese trend of single men carrying ‘2-D Girlfriends’ around everywhere with them.

The rise of 2-D love can be attributed in part to the difficulty many young Japanese have in navigating modern romantic life. According to a government survey, more than a quarter of unmarried men and women between the ages of 30 and 34 are virgins; 50 percent of men and women in Japan said they were not “going out with anybody”.

Now is getting in on this new trend, featuring the Girlfriend Body Pillow from This is a somewhat different look at the same idea, rather than being an anime character, it is a human-shaped pillow … or rather a quarter of a person!

Here is their pitch:

Girlfriend Pillow Do your wife’s business trips make you unease at bed time? Perhaps the fact that you don’t have her around to shares your dreams makes it harder for you to fall sleep. This comfortable pillow recreates the comfort of having your beloved partner.

  5. Does the girl come with the Boyfriend Pillow?

  6. No – that’s why this is really, really.. sad.

  7. Y’know … I wasn’t going to bring it up, but it is presented the same way on the site. For the girl pillow you get that odd image, but for the guy pillow you have a beautiful young lady all made up but in PJ’s … there was another image there even further along the same lines.
