But are we desensitizing one of the most human acts of them all-sexual intercourse?!
More and more people are increasingly comfortable with disassociation thus birthed the proposal to create these droid prostitutes. The suggestions of this type of droid have been seen repeatedly in all types of science fiction movies such as Artifical Intelligence (AI), Surrogates and I ROBOT.
The future as envisioned by Michelle Mars and Ian Yeoman at Victoria University of Wellington, have released a report suggesting that lifelike robots will be coming to a “hoe house” near you.
Mars and Yeoman see lots of advantages to having “hoe-bots” doing the dirty work instead of humans, such as “commercial sex robots would be free of disease and would reduce the trafficking of real people,” they told The Week.
Despite the fact that these hard-wired whores will suck up electricity as opposed to, er, never mind, the raunchy robot researchers say the idea isn’t that shocking.
“Sex robots are absolutely inevitable. In fact, they already exist,” Mars told Business Insider. “Society has had relationships with machines and we continue to have increasingly intimate relationships with more and more sophisticated technologies.”
For instance, there is “Roxxxy,” an interactive doll costing between $7,000 to $9,000 that was unveiled at an adult entertainment expo in 2010, and, according to MSNBC.com, can be programmed with different personalities such as frigid Farrah and wild Wendy.
If you’re the type of person who can’t get used to the idea of getting kinky with an android, don’t worry: There will still be human sex workers as well.
