    Humongous Cylindrical Pillow. What Are They For?

    On my last out of state blackjack trip, both hotels I stayed at had these huge cylinder pillows on the bed. I really don't see any use for them. At one place they weren't even satisfied with putting just one of these on each bed. They had to put a couple of them.

    Anyway, I can't think of any use for these pillows except maybe to cuddle up next to on a long lonely blackjack trip. However, the fabric is rough and I doubt if they are ever washed. I always just move them to the other bed.

    At least in my local area they don't have them. What the hell are they for?

    You use them to put other pillows on so you can sit up in bed more comfortably. With just pillows there is not enough resistance there to really prop you up.

    I thought it was used for a spur of the moment tool in Dominatrix games.

    Not sure bout that. Maybe some of the guys use it as a blow up doll substitute.

    They had those at a hotel I stayed at near H? Chunk a few months ago. They're "cuddle buddies" for lonely people. There's even an unzippable pouch if you want to take it to the next level. Damn shame they're not washed though.........

    OP said its size is 'Huge'.
    If it is not Huge, I guess it as 'Neck Pillow' to maintain C-curve on your neck while sleeping.
