Trash!! Very immoral to show being sexual with an object!

This title has:

Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The voyeuristic series showcases some one-of-a-kind collections, as well as the rituals and routines their owners have created to preserve them. It also highlights how these folks use their obsessions to create a fun fantasy world that, in some cases, offers a chance to escape from their everyday lives.

It's non-judgmental in its approach, but you can't help wonder how their hobbies grew from being a fun pastime to taking over their lives. You may also find yourself questioning whether their all-around behavior also makes them potential candidates for a future episode of My Strange Addiction or Hoarders.
