Machines have replaced humans at various frontiers, and the bedroom may be the next and experts claim Robotic Sex with robots is set to overtake human lovemaking by 2050, but it comes with a warning.
“Robotic sex may become addictive,” Joel Snell of Kirkwood College in the US was quoted by the Daily Star as saying.
And like machines have bettered humans in various field, robots might end up making better lovers too.
“Because they would be programmable, sexbots would meet each individual user’s needs,” the American research fellow said and “Robotic sex may become better than human sex,” he added.
Warning that this could push things a bit too far, Snell said, “People will rearrange their lives to accommodate their addictions,” But not everyone is frowning at the thought and a Britain-based sex therapist suggests the shift could in fact be healthy for our sex lives.
“Who are we to judge people who want to have sex with robots? Let people enjoy sex robots – they will work in the same way couples introduce a toy into a sexual relationship and if both parties agree, I see nothing wrong,” Gurpreet Singh, a sex therapist from counseling charity Relate, told the Daily Star.
Singh, too, warned about the risk of addiction, saying that it would not be healthy for robots to replace humans entirely. “It takes on a whole different meaning if robots are used because of a fear of intimacy or because a person wants to be isolated,” he said.
Robots could also lead to changes in The Sex Industry, replacing sex workers to help stamp out sexual slavery and trafficking.
Robots could also lead to changes in the sex industry, replacing sex workers to help stamp out sexual slavery and trafficking and the Star Online had earlier reported on how cyborgs are going to revolutionise the UK sex scene, encouraging safe and clean romps.
‘Robotic sex may become addictive. Sexbots would always be available and could never say no, so addictions would be easy to feed. By the year 2050, sex with robots will be common – and some people may actually fall in love with androids.
In their paper ‘Robots, men and sex tourism’ Ian Yeoman and Michelle Mars of the University of Victoria Management School in Wellington, New Zealand, say that robot prostitutes will be common, but expensive, by 2050.
They imagine Amsterdam brothels offering, ‘a range of sexual gods and goddesses of different ethnicities, body shapes, ages, languages and sexual features.’
