Yay it's my B-day so I'm going to doing a sexy article!
The japanese hugging pillow also known as a dakimakura and up until recently a mostly male only merchandise. A dakimakura is a body pillow with a image of your favorite anime charcter on it. The dakimakura image comes in two styles: One for the kiddies and one for adults. (I'll just skip to the adult page hehe >:3)
Ok first things first. The dakimakura comes in 2 parts. 1)The big huggable fluffy pillow and 2) The pillow cover that has the image on it. It's removable! That way you won't have 80-something pillows stuffed in your closet. haha! The next part! Most pillow covers are two sided, these are options that you will see. 1) fully clothed, 2) half clothed 3 naked(discret) 4) naked everything hanging out (NOTE: I've only seen this option in girls so far if you've seen it for a guy post a link in the comments below!) Then there are two facial expressions; Shy and lustful.
While searching the site I've seen mostly Durarara!!, Tiger and Bunny, Vocaloid, and Hitman Reborn. There are others like Uta no prince_sama: Majin Love 1000% (seriously wtf kinda title is that???) Avaliable on Hobby Search for a little above $100 USD. Which gets us to our next topic price! oh god prices I'm crying already.
The prices for these things go easily into the 100's escipaclly if your getting them from a liget site, There are other sites that sell covers for 40 bucks though and I've found a person on devientart selling a personal art one for 70(excluding shipping) but as you can see its expensive for the real stuff.
Ok the last thing you need to know about this product. The cover comes in diffrent material options
The peach skin is the standard setting all other option are extra from $15-$20
And of course there are sites where you can submit a picture and get a custom one! but it has to be BIG remember its a BODY pillow
