Robots Created For Sex With Humans

This month a group of engineers/inventors made the announcement they had created robots specifically for sex. The sex robots are expected to be available for sale in the near future. Robot penis or robot vagina - I don‘t think so. Sorry, but this sounds strange, creepy and mentally unhealthy. Robot sex need not become the norm. How could a robot, a piece of plastic, possibly be the same as a human being made of flesh and blood.

A robot is not a real person. It’s an inanimate object. Not to mention, what happens if the robot malfunctions and electrocutes you down there. How ever will you explain those injuries in the emergency room. Robot burn (LOL). You would never pee the same again.


By 2050, human-on-robot sex will be more common than human-on-human sex, says report

10:10AM BST 29 Sep 2015 - A shocking new report from a futurologist reveals predictions about the future of sex and robots.  Can you imagine having sex with a humanoid robot? Apparently, this will be the norm in a few short decades. Futurologist Dr Ian Pearson has released a report in which he predicts the future of sex.

He released the report in partnership with Bondara, one of the UK's leading sex toy shops.
Dr. Pearson makes the point that robotic sex toys - vibrators - have been in use for around a century, and that virtual reality porn is about to become mainstream.

So, what really is the taboo around sex robots - which have got some campaigners incredibly fired up?...

Who's Sweating the Sexbots?

Sep 30, 2015 - While sex robots do reflect troubling gender dynamics, they hardly doom humanity to a future of exploitation and empty relationships. In 2014, the Pew Research Center released a report titled “AI, Robotics, and the Future of Jobs,” in which it surveyed experts on the future of "intelligent digital agents permeating vast areas of our work and personal lives."

Though most of the report focused on robots in the realm of work, Stowe Boyd, the lead researcher for GigaOM Research, also offered a more intimate prediction for robots’ roles: "Robotic sex partners will be a commonplace,” he said, “although the source of scorn and division, the way that critics today bemoan selfies as an indicator of all that's wrong with the world."

The latter part of his prediction has already come to pass. Earlier this month, two robotics researchers, Kathleen Richardson of De Montfort University in the U.K. and Erik Billing of the University of Sk√∂vde in Sweden, launched the Campaign Against Sex Robots. “These kinds of robots are harmful and contribute to inequalities in society,” they write on the campaign’s website. "As humanoid robots become more widespread it is necessary to develop an engaged ethical response to the development of these new technologies."
