  Sleeping Soundly With The "Man Pillow"

In Japan, women can now sleep with what is known as "The Man Pillow" or "The Boyfriend's Arm Pillow". Kinda creepy, I think, but there might be those who would find it "comforting". The photo caption reads:

Junko Suzuki, a radio DJ, demonstrates how she sleeps with a 'Boyfriend's Arm Pillow' in Tokyo Friday, Sept. 24, 2004. The pillow manufactured by linen maker Kameo Corp. consists of a headless torso and a stuffed arm that curls around the sleeper. It might make some people uneasy but have sold about 1,000 in Japan since the product went on the market last December. The maker says the pillow is not only an emotional comfort, but that its shape keeps the body balanced by supporting the sleeper from both sides. (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara)
