Hey, Watch Where You Put That Hand!

Linen maker Kameo Corp.’s new "Boyfriend’s Arm Pillow" – which consists
of a headless torso and a stuffed arm that curls around the sleeper – might make
some people uneasy. But not Junko Suzuki, or about 1000 others in Japan who
have bought the pillow, which Kameo says is the first of its kind. The
product went
on the market last
December.

"I like to sleep holding someone’s hand," Ms Suzuki, 34. "And
this pillow makes me feel relaxed because I can hold the arm and feel something
warm at my side."

The pillow is only on sale in Japan, where customers can
buy one for Y8500 ($106.8). Covered in a shirt-shaped pillow cover, it
comes in blue, pink or green.

"It keeps holding me all the way through," she said in her home outside
of Tokyo. "I think this is great because this does not betray me."

The company also has a prototype for its next big project:
a female pillow for men. This one will be shaped like a woman’s lap,
with a "skirt" cover.

Hell, the Dowbrigade has had one of those for years. She’s
in the closet, at least until we get a polyvinyl patch kit…….
