Researchers Predict Robot Prostitutes in Near Future: Sexy or Sick?

This kind of takes "sex doll" to a whole new level. According to "Robots, Men And Sex Tourism," a research paper by Ian Yeoman and Michelle Mars of the Victoria Management School in Wellington, New Zealand, robot prostitution could be a possibility by 2050. They would be made of "bacteria-resistant fiber," of course.

The paper agrees with a 2007 study done by David Levy, a Netherlands student who completed his PhD on human-robot relationships. He claimed that humans would be sleeping with robots -- and marrying them -- by 2050. He speculated that they would be so life-like, humans could actually fall in love with them. So what do you think? We know we have a few decades 'til it comes, but is the idea of sex robots sexy or sick?

    I don't like the choices - would have said other. Personally, don't find the idea of sex robots sexy, since they are at heart just glorified vibrators. On the other hand, while vibrators aren't sexy, they do serve a useful purpose. Also, if robot prostitutes prevent real women from being abused, I am all in favor of them.

    I'm truly undecided on this... They'd certainly LOOK sexy, and they'd make great prostitutes, but nothing more. If you're looking for actual LOVE (which most guys aren't anymore) than the robot thing isn't the way to go.
    P.S. The chick in the photo is hot, but I know that's just a girl dressed as a robot, not a robot that looks like a girl.

    Just ignore him. People who refer to others as "libs" and such tend to overgeneralize and be so caught up in dividing people into two categories that they resort to this division once their insults are gone.

    Some men also take pleasure in calling women jealous...I think it's because that sounds irrational and it is supposed to make your opinion invalid. I think he's just enthused with this Sodahead poll and sits behind his keyboard trash-talking people who think otherwise, the same way he does with politics...

    The robot is sexy like a photograph or sculpture can be sexy, however, the idea of having sex with it is questionable.

    All I can say is this: http://gizmodo.com/347233/lov... Furthermore, if 80% or more of victims of serial killers are women, and 9/10 of rape victims are women, what do you think will happen to the statistics if men (or women) can do whatever they want to sex robots? Once you objectify these machines that ressemble men or women, you objectify that gender as well. You aren't helping the society 'control their inhibitations,' you instead push them to greater and great risks.


    I hope I'm on planet Mars during this time!

    I don't think your logic is sound. You're making a similar argument to "if you can kill a person in a video game, you'll start killing people in real life". Sometimes having an acceptable outlet for emotions and desires actually subverts those negative desires. If a man can have sex with a robot, perhaps he will NOT rape a woman, in the same way a man might play a violent video game nowdays instead of actually hurting anyone. Today is objectively the least violent time in human history. Things like sex robots and video games seem to be part of that trend.
  • KendraT... Jacksane 2012/04/23 16:53:36 (edited)

    There is no relationship between violence and video games and sex robots and an increase in statistics regarding serial killers. I'm not saying that sex robots will cause all users to go out and commit violent/sexual crimes, but for the percentage of men with very abnormal requests, giving them sex robots will further push them to pursue their sick fantasies on real women (or men or children) that aren't as compliant as their programmed lovers. I couldn't disagree more with you.
  • Jacksane KendraT... 2012/04/23 17:27:02

    The same thing can be said of pornography. Either sick individuals are GOING to rape women regardless of what you do, or they simply need an outlet. Give them an outlet, and you cannot possibly increase the number of rapes. If a man wants sexual release, he will target someone who is least likely to resist. If he can find a sex robot that will not resist at all, this will be an efficient and legal outlet. If the man is truly deranged and simply want to force himself on a woman, he would have done so regardless of having a sex robot at his disposal. Your argument does not stand up to logical dissection.
    Some individuals will take any type of sexual or violent practice too far, but most people have a healthy attitude toward sex.
