Perhaps redeeming this for you, there is an unexpectedly wholesome and quiet little movie called Lars and the Real Girl, in which Ryan Gosling plays a young man of very limited social skills who apparently falls in love with such a doll. Here's a snippet of plot synopsis from the first half of the movie, from the wiki article. Don't want to spoil the whole plot, but IMO it's worth a watch.

Lars Lindstrom lives a secluded life in a small Wisconsin town. His mother died when he was born, causing his grief-stricken father to have been a distant parent to Lars and his older brother, Gus. Gus left town as soon as he could support himself, returning only to inherit his half of the household when their father died. As an awkward adult, Lars feels guilt that his birth coincides with his mother's death and he seeks to resolve these conflicting feeling of love and loss.

The inheritance has been divided between the brothers: Lars lives in the converted garage, while Gus and his pregnant wife Karin live in the house proper. Lars is pathologically shy; interacting with or relating to his family or co-workers is very difficult for him. A colleague at his office job, Margo, likes him, but Lars is impervious to Margo’s attempts to be friendly.

One evening, Lars happily announces to Gus and Karin that he has a visitor whom he met via the Internet, a wheelchair-mobile missionary of Brazilian and Danish descent named Bianca. The pair are startled to discover that Bianca is actually a lifelike doll Lars ordered from an adult website. Lars treats the doll as a live human being, asking if Bianca can stay in Gus and Karin's guest room, as she and Lars are religious and do not want scandal about their relationship. Gus and Karin play along with Lars’ delusion, but, concerned about his mental health, also convince Lars to take Bianca with him to Dagmar, a family doctor who is also a psychologist. While Dagmar diagnoses Bianca with low blood pressure, she urges Lars to come in with Bianca for weekly treatments, during which Dagmar will attempt to analyze Lars and get to the root of his behavior. Dagmar explains to Gus and Karin that Lars’ delusion is a manifestation of an underlying problem that needs to be addressed, and that they need to assist with Lars' therapy by continuing to treat Bianca as if she were a real woman. During this time, Margo has begun to date another co-worker, which silently bothers Lars.
 





correcting someone in the yahoo news article comments section is fun especially when you know the subject and how to find the info to prove the person wrong. ( person said the b-25 is unable to be shot down, 'Nam says different, the person says they are still on nuclear stand-by alert, which they haven't been since '91 and aren't approved to carry nukes since 2017)

"Unable to be shot down" sounds very much like "unsinkable", said The Titanic.
