We Will Be Having Sex With Robots By 2050?!

Whenever I see one of those videos of ASIMO the Honda robot walking across a stage or climbing some stairs, I get a future boner. The robot itself is not very sexy. It looks like an over-sized Lego man and moves like a drunk toddler. However what excites me isn’t the present but the future. A future of robots I can fuck and then play video games with – like Teddy Ruxpin with a vagina.

According to an article published in Futures, robot prostitutes just like this will dominate the sex tourism market by 2050.

Currently, STDs and illegal human trafficking are major problems for the sex tourism industry. By sex tourism, we mean more than simply hiring a prostitute while on vacation. Sex tourism is a more hedonistic approach where prostitutes are the entire vacation. Robots could potentially impact such an experience for the better.

A robot made for sex would never transmit diseases and would be made to a level of physical beauty in the realm of perfection. The robot would take the job of several human prostitutes who may have otherwise been forced into prostitution against their will. Scientists and researchers are putting a lot of thought into this, and while the academic community has a collective nerd boner others are not as amused.

Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Carson City, Nevada said:

“Those Australian researchers ought to come to the Bunny Ranch to see what real American sex is like – there’s no way to duplicate it […] At the Bunny Ranch, we say ‘it’s not just the sex, it’s an adventure’ – and often times it’s more about the adventure than it is the sex.”

Hof has a point, but let’s look at this from the side of science. If we went from shitty clamshell phones to the iPhone in 6 years, imagine what could be done in 40. Robots can already walk and deliver drinks, and computer based artificial intelligence is getting pretty damn creepy. Slam some servos, a couple cameras and the right software into a Real Doll and we have the makings of a replicant from Blade Runner. Now that’s a god damn adventure.
