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?

    Humans are machines to me. Complicated compared to our technology, but still just warm water and wires. We are born with a program from our DNA, and adapt to our surroundings. An advanced enough robot could be indistinguishable from a human, and even be convinced of its own free will as many of us are.

    I think someone has been watching to many sci-fi films.

    They had better make them waterproof though as i would hate to see them short circuit after doing the washing up :)

    As long as they don't cheat on you or nag you they would be great.

    This is so disgusting, I rather live here in the present with the future technology we have, but sex robots? Really, this gets so preverted on so many levels! Instead of sex with a robot why not with your loved one, that is normal and totally human. This century and many centuries down the road should not come up with this, like yeah what are robots gonna robot babies, or another form of another disease. There's its ups and its downs but by, by far rather disgusting. But then again its my opinon on the input on this!

    Make love with a robert ? Man has so keen needs? What will the world become when roberts prostitute in the future? Prostitution is illegal and it is not a good thing.Can't it be stopped? Roberts are roberts.
  • Spider lara 2012/04/24 13:23:43
    I am a Robert. I make love. But I do not prostitute. I have been called a machine, and I may be, and I see nothing wrong with this.

    It should still be legal, but yeah... to me it seems kinda sick.
  • cddjmikey 2012/04/24 06:17:55
    As long as they look and feel real it could cut down the sex slave trade. The downside is the MASSIVE unemployment that would occur in places like Las Vegas.

    diffently sick
  • Sonic 2012/04/24 05:01:11
    Ok, so I don't believe it's "sick" per se. Some people have their hobbies, and I have mine. But, I do not want robots becoming so realistic with a type of artificial intelligence that would make a man vs machine war like in "Terminator" possible.
  • malkerian Sonic 2012/04/24 05:24:50
    It will probably happen one day, but not in our life time, so don;t worry. In the meantime hump as many robots as possible.

    You say sick, but if you had the robot of your freams you would have sex with it... Just look at you, you have robot sex written all over your face... SLUT.
  • malkerian malkerian 2012/04/24 05:27:42
    Actually I could see you banging 2,3 robots at one time... Tieing them up etc. Come here robot love, spank me.

    aaahhh meant to click sick!!! I guess it's better to have sanitary robot prostitutes (also guilt free) than disease ridden humans but only if emotion stays the hell out of it! the thought of actually marrying a robot- scariest crap i have ever heard of. So messed up!

    just weird. I don't think necesarily sick ..sick is 'swinging" and have multiple partner. maybe married people wouldn't stray if they had this out let

    My vote would be indifference. And they won't be prostitutes, unless some people just like the rush of possibly being busted by the vice squad. People will just buy one and stash it in the closet.
    Humm, idea for a new reality show.....Bait-Bot-Prostitute?

    It's just a fancy sex toy. Why not?
  • TheGnomeWhisperer 2012/04/24 03:05:54
    OMG !!!
    I sure hope so :)
  • Rob all the way 2012/04/24 02:46:24
    Rob all the way
    we have not a clue of what the level of "sickness" will be like in the future so... there is nothing impossible:)
  • bad 2012/04/24 02:19:00
    Married women will be buying these things as soon as they can so that they wouldn't have to have sex with their husbands. Probably will save a ton of marriges so husbands won't be out looking for it.
  • draguza 2012/04/24 02:10:18
    I'm of the opinion that it doesn't matter who or what people sleep with. Personally, I think it's pretty damn cool on a scientific level, probably nothing I'd partake in, but sex leads technology pretty well.

    Why not? If technology is that far advanced that scientists can build sex robots instead of doing something useful, then well, just make sure u get one with a lighter in it to light your cigarette afterwords.
  • T 2012/04/24 01:40:44
    Sex toys will only get better. Good thing too, if we keep asking our kids to wait until marriage. Plus, it will eventually mean that kids will stop getting married just to have sex and instead wait until they are ready for a REAL relationship.

    Basing a marriage off of sex is a bad idea. I mean, it's like buying a house solely for the bathroom. (However, if the bathroom were to suddenly disappear, It would be difficult to stay committed to that house. Think of the sex bot as an outhouse you rent until you get the bathroom situation worked out.)
  • Shadow_Wolf 2012/04/24 01:31:31
    It's finally happen there is now no use for women. jk, but it's really disturbing that people are just that lonely that they need to have sex with a robot. Now I guess that guy I saw on taboo will be replacing his doll with these robots.
  • ogre 2012/04/24 01:31:15
    Well, really more pathetic than sick. I would pity the poor homely soul so ugly s/he couldn't find some flesh and blood human being to engage in coitus with. I mean, in my experience there's someone for everyone except perhaps in extreme cases of physical or emotional disfigurement.
