Long-Term Project: Sexuality in America
Price Ritchie, 53, sits with his $5,000 sex doll at his home in Paducah, Ky.. Ritchie purchased the love doll after a period of loss in which is mother and brother died and his wife divorced him. "i tried everything to fill a void in my life after they were gone, but i needed to feel something next to me in bed at night, and Bella (the doll) helps with that." while Ritchie does not converse with the doll, he admits that she gives him a considerable amount of companionship.
