sex robots

Postby Dr. E. PLATE » 05 Jul 2017, 23:12

Surprised nobody's started a thread on this. Or maybe they tried to, and got LOCKED OUT (like I just did).

I should be careful what I write, then.

Maybe I'll just post a link to the Guardian's article:

To a point.

Yeah, I expected that.

Ho hum.

Anyway - good news or bad? I find it fascinating. Objectifying women? Korean men shagging only robots by 2020?

What is wrong with men these days? I'm really glad the internet wasn't around when I was growing up. I'm going to quit society if I ever see one of these things sitting on the sidewalk waiting for garbage collection.

the first thing that happens with any innovation is somebody figures out how to put their dick in it.

If it helps stop selfish, wealthy people from breeding, I'm for it.

Fascinating topic. But this is a hell of an area to get into, and one that's hard to discuss properly (especially here on an internet board) - it brings up some seriously deep issues about the nature of human relationships, sexuality, morality, technology, religion, the whole fucking kit and kaboodle.

Case in point, from the article - the last 2 paragraphs of the article.

It's a fucking waste of money, of course, but then again I think the same of all sex toys and this is just the next step in the evolution of the blow-up doll.

And also, whilst I'm no historian, I do understand that if this new line of 'sexbots' would herald a technological revolution when it comes to domestic machines or whatnot, then this would hardly be the first time pornography becomes a major motivator for a technological and cultural advancement: to the best of my awareness this is exactly what happened with the printing press, where pornography helped spread the technology two centuries before it became one of the major catalysts to the scientific revolution. Those of us who are bemoaning the state of the world because sexual gratification is making people think up really pervy ways of using their newest tools for the tasks are, uh, six hundred years too late in doing so.

It's not just men, mind - there are also male sexbots being manufactured. Here's a female consumer's position on these:

Robots? You mean people want them to function? Radical.

I tried posting some stuff about how all this tech is sex/p*rn driven (Internet, home video etc) much the same as algroth's post really.

Got blocked.

I would say that women's sex toys have been a bit more realistic and probably reliable/efficacious until now.

These dolls look as realistic as some of them slappers on 'Love Island' and the like.

Three holes, no waiting.

Ethically i don't think its any different then humping a pound of sliced liver, though the kiddie robot thing is just wrong.
Heyyyy!

Hm, didn't see the thing about the kiddie robot. Wonder if, overall, that stops paedophiles abusing real kids or encourages it. You'd think they may be a diversion from real kids so in fact they'd be a positive thing.

I've watched this documentary about dolls before - it doesn't have the mocking background music of the other one. And it has a woman talking about her (non-sex) dolls too. It's fascinating.

This really interests me. It's a very tricky topic, of course, as fange has pointed out. I really don't know what to think.

There's an idea to use kid sexbots to satisfy pedos. I don't really want to google it at work on the network. It's an idea but still sits uneasy with me.
