From Sex robot focuses on appealing to the mind - Yahoo! News
Great...next thing we are gonna have is laws forbidding a robot and a human to wed...
You got metal fever, baby!
Does it come with Shake Weight action built-in?
Or we'll be getting one of these going berserk, and take over the world.
To be honest, the anti-Robot marriage thing wasn't the first thought that came to mind.
It was like that time Peter got a robot for work:
Peter- It won't harm humans or show emotion
Robot starts choking Peter
Peter- AH! It's harming humans
Peter- OH GOD! It's got emotions!
Really? Jersey and not Japan?
Well, this was the logical progression of events.
Wasn't that an episode of Ghost in the Shell? The Geri's I think they called them?
I still love this line. I can see it now, "this robot treats me better in ways that you as a human can't!"
They better not install PMS into those things or we're all dead
and in before first divorce caused one of those things
But.... but... I love Dinobot!
No kidding, that's the main thing I don't like about the real deal. Oh, well, you have to take the good with the bad.
You'd all have sex with a robot if you had the chance. You all know it so don't try to deny it.
NO. NEVER. Natural is better.
That's what I thought.....
Mechanical is masterful.
This is perfect, really.
I know, this may help peel the real, savage losers away from dealing with normal people. So win-win, I suppose.
That and this will never be a real issue in anything like the near future at all, and the "why" of it is actually very simple.
So, who knows what a Real Doll costs?
About as much as a cheap car does, $5,000.00 or so, depending. That was easy to find out. So no one is buying these things a cheap substitute for human companionship. You have people so wealthy they can buy them as a lark, or out of curiosity, or as artwork, and then you have those losers I mentioned.
Nobody drops 5K on a sex toy unless they can easily afford that, or they have some spectacular issues.
Now fabrication has come a long way in the past decade, and the things are still out of the price range of any casual buyer. Robots...robots would be even further out of that range.
I mean honestly, I've yet to come across a need that some human, somewhere, is unable or unwilling to satisfy unless that need involves actually killing them or having sex with an animal or child, and even those can be simulated with the right props/people.
Some people just can't learn to deal with others at all, I guess, and rather than try and change an aspect of themselves that is clearly broken, would rather retreat into a "relationship" that really only involves one person projecting their needs onto a cypher.
But that's hardly common, nor is it likely to be.
