New documentary reveals secret life of men who like to dress up as plastic dolls

07 January 2014, 11:09

London – A new documentary by Channel 4 reveals a secret world that very few people know about.

The documentary titled Secrets of the Living Dolls shows a growing number of men for whom time off means time spent dressed in an elaborate body suit, complete with breasts and a vagina, designed to make them look like the glamorous women they are not.

According to an article published by Mail Online the ‘maskers’, or ‘rubber dollers’ as they’re also known, do not feel born in the wrong body.

For them, dressing up as a member of the opposite sex is simply a way of having fun.

“They’re not freaky people, they’re not weird, they’re just like you and me,” explains Barbie Ramos, the owner of Femskin, a company that makes the $850 custom-made silicone outfits worn by maskers.
