You'll be stunned when you see the true identity of this woman

2 January 2015 / 1 year 9 months ago

At first glance, this 'young blonde woman' simply looks like she put on too much makeup, or has had plastic surgery done.

However, you'll be absolutely shocked to find out that 'she' is actually a 70-year-old man. 

Robert, a divorced property developer who lives in Newport Beach, California, reveals his peculiar penchant for wearing rubber and silicone bodysuits to resemble a female blow-up doll in the upcoming season of My Strange Addiction, reports AsianTown.

He lives with his 19-year-old daughter.

For Robert, dressing as his female alter-ego 'Sherry' is a dedicated passion. He has been slipping into his skin-tight suits - which come with eerie matching masks - for 12 years.

'That's why I do this,’ Robert breathes as he pouts at his reflection in the bathroom mirror, ‘because I think I look amazing.'

He continues: ‘I just can't believe that's a 70-year-old man in the mirror and that's why I do this. If I saw a 70-year-old man in the mirror I would quit this tomorrow.'

Asked what he sees when he looks at his dolled-up reflection, Robert replies: 'An exciting looking female. If I saw a woman like this and she asked me to go hang out, I'd say yeah.'

There might also be a depressing reason behind this. Robert reveals his obsesssion might be because dating real women have been somewhat a disappointment.

‘You see, after all, I'm 70 years old and I've tried dating, and when I'm dating, the women I meet are generally 55 to well up into their 60s,’ he explained.

‘Some of them are in really good shape for their age but they don't look anything like this and it's very difficult to date when you have this to come home to.’
