Sex robot

Sex has changed a lot in the public sphere over the decades, but if some researchers in New Zealand have it their way, things are about to get a lot more electronic. Yep, we're taking it there.

Yeah, because that's not creepy at all, right?

That's right, ladies, sex robots. Not the least bit creepy, right?

According to a Fox News article, researchers in New Zealand recently released a study -- called Robots, Men And Sex Tourism -- predicting the release of lifelike sex robots in brothels. The estimated arrival of these sex gods? 2050. The inspiration? Guilt-free, safe sex.

Before we share our opinion on this one, shall we say interesting topic, let's take a look at what these brothels will supposedly look like in 2050. Fox News says the study envisions them as "modern and gleaming with about 100 scantily clad blondes and brunettes parading around in exotic G-strings and lingerie." Wow.

And we're sure men want to know: What will a romp with an electronic goddess cost? $9,500 will get you an "all-inclusive service" that includes lap dances and intercourse, and the menu of ladies they can choose from will range in ethnicity, body shape, age, sexual features and languages. Another plus? The study predicts that robot prostitution will help put an end to all the human trafficking going on in the sex industry.

Ok, now our opinion. We're all for putting an end to human trafficking and sure, sex with a lifeless robot might save tons of men from an unwanted pregnancy or a nasty STD, but are we the only ones that find the concept a bit strange? Like the ladies on the talk show The Talk asked today: Who is in charge of cleaning these robots? (Side note: We shudder at the thought) And won't this encourage more men to stray from their women? But enough about us, we want to know: Does the concept of a sex robot creep you out?

I personally find this disgusting. Why cause men to stray from their wives? is meant to be between a man and a woman, it's an intimate bond. It's not meant to be between a man and a robot. That's just gross and wrong. It takes away from the real meaning of .

The way that it is being portrayed in this article can be creepy. We are comparing these machines to human women. When they are not human women at all, they are toys. These are just the technological inevitability of toys. The industry will always be working towards greater realism in their products. The creepy part is that they think a man will travel to experience this. Perhaps the cost of technology today will require a $9,500 price tag for a romp with one of these machines; but by 2050, the cost of this technology will be so low that the equivalent to $9,500 will be enough to purchase one. The creepy part is that neither men nor women share their accouterments. Avoiding the issue of sharing, this is a natural step in the industry's evolution. And why not!? For too long has technology been advanced in pursuit of war and dominion, it's nice to see a happier side to progress. :)
