Sex Droids Fueling Massive Rise in Sex Addiction, Experts Warn
No, this is not a joke, but God’s honest truth, and by sex droids I am not referring at Android running smartphones fornicating with their users. The so-called sex droids are basically generation-next inflatable sex dolls, i.e. sex dolls, also known as sex robots, blessed with artificial intelligence, among other cool things. If it sounds too good to be true, it must be the weather. Joke aside, considering the huge technological leaps we’re witnessing today, in a not-so-distance future we’ll be able to buy smart pleasure droids from our local sex shop, or from Amazon, in like 30 seconds flat.
Truth be told, I don’t know if the future high-tech sex droids will run on Android, but I am certain that a number of companies from both the United States and Japan are working frantically to fill this niche. Let’s take for example the manufacturer of Harmony 3.0 super-sex-doll, which is a Californian startup called Realbotix. According to the Californian high-tech pimp, Harmony is the world’s first anatomically complete sex-droid, boasting artificial intelligence on top of big boobs and all that. These “babies”, both male and female, are expected to cost upward of $10,000 apiece, and they’ll make for the best thing since sliced bread for sex addicts trying to cure their disease and control their urges. Or so Realbotix claims. How does it work? Well, that’s still a mystery.
But psychologists and various “sex bot experts” are already warning about the future impact of these “anatomically correct” uber-smart sex dolls, as they could very well make for yet another mean for sex addicts to express their compulsion. It’s just like with drug addiction: you get rid of heroin, and become addicted of methadone. Lose-lose situation.
The truth is, these awesome looking sex droids may become just as addictive as “the real thing”, if you know what I mean. Have you ever read Philip K. Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”, also known as “Blade Runner”? Or at least, have you seen the movie (s)? If not, I’d strongly advise you to do it both, i.e. read the book then see the movie. Replacing natural sex with high tech toys, which may soon become better at it than humans, doesn’t strike me like the greatest idea in the world, but maybe I’m too old fashioned.
