Every year scientists and engineers are making advances in miniaturize sensors but there's one aspect of this phenomenon to which a lot of enlighten people have given a good bit of thought. Is having sex with an ultra-realistic robot hooker cheating?
Barbie was designed by Ruth Handler, who supposedly modeled the doll after a smoldering, sort of exotica prostitute character from a German comic strip, Bild Lilli. The Germans designed a doll after a sultry semi-porno character, and she bears an extremely remarkable resemblance to Barbie — or rather, Barbie bears an extremely remarkable resemblance to Lilli. (Bild Lilli, alas, came first). Ah. But, whereas the German Lilli is rather a strumpet, her American twin, Barbie, is the wholesome girl next door; if you ignore her ‘teenage’ 36-26-36 measurements and her sleek, Cleaopatra-type exotic eyeliner.
Fifty prototype sex dolls were eventually produced, but the sex doll program was ultimately scrapped in 1942 because soldiers were too embarrassed to carry the “comforters” into combat with them.
I hardly shed a tear when some you abuses a vending machine. Yet give something a couple of eyes and the hint of lifelike abilities and suddenly some ancient region of my brain starts firing off empathy signals. How are kids who grow up with robots as companions going to handle this? This question is starting to get debated by robot designers and toymakers. With advanced robotics becoming cheaper and more commonplace, the challenge isn't how we learn to accept robots—but whether we should care when they're mistreated. And if we start caring about robot ethics, might we then go one insane step further and grant them rights?
What if you could design your own Sex Bot?
Area 51 Love Doll - It's the love doll they never wanted you to know about! For years they've locked it away, kept it classified and tried to prevent man from enjoying extraterrestrial pleasure. Now you can experience what humans have fantasized about for decades...incredible sex with an alien! Between kissing robots and full-sized love dolls that talk, it's clear to me that all aspects of technosexuality and technology are heading toward one inevitable invention: robot hookers.
