What If I Sit On Her? 

A couple weeks ago I pointed out the Boyfriend Replacing Pillow for women. Well, not to be out done, an Asian firm (go figure) is developing a Virtual Girlfriend for your mobile phone:

The Hong Kong company Artificial Life, which developed the new game, says the girl will appear as an animated figure on the video screen of a mobile phone.

But there is a downside to the virtual girlfriend - she will require more flowers and gifts than many real women.

Artificial Life is hoping to launch the new game later this year, on the latest 3-G mobile phones.

All virtual girls will look the same - but each girl will behave differently - depending on how much money is spent on her.

On top of a general subscription, men will be charged a fee to buy flowers and gifts for the virtual girlfriend.

In return, she will introduce them to different aspects of her life, like letting them meet her female friends - also electronic images.

Electronic Images? So basically you're paying for mobile phone porn. I hate to break it to you guys, but there are a lot easier ways to get that. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that China is having problems convincing people to keep their girl babies. There are a lot of desperate bachelors in China now.

That's funny....men don't like to buy flowers & spend $$ in real life...like they'd do it in game!!
