brilett: Do vibrators count? You don't even have to listen to them talk afterwards.


Or if not, Sybians?

Too hell with farking one, I want a robotic sex toy that gives a good blowjob.

The thing could look like R2-D2, but if I could sit on the couch, get a blow job and it hand me a cold beer afterwards, that would be all I need.

weenersly: isn't anyone using a vibrator etc., already doing this?


Not really. It seems to be more about recreating a life partner with the trying to reach convincing levels of empathy and everything, not just getting off with a sex toy. Like these robots are to "love" while a vibrator is to "sex". Seems pretty sad and lame in way far beyond vibrators and other toys like that.

way south: ReapTheChaos: A robot is too much like having a wife/gf, you're stuck with that one model unless you trade it in, and who would buy a used sex robot? I'd prefer a holodeck so I can pick whatever fantasy suits my mood at the time.

Do you know what's better than a sex robot?
Two sex robots.
Collect em all!

Try that with real women and your house will end up on CNN.



/Presuming these things come with a learning program, a used sex robot would be more interesting than a new one.
/and unlike real women, you can sterilize them properly.

Jorn the Younger: robohobo: Isn't it more likely we'll have full-out VR with electrodes and sensors and all before we have lifelike bots with AI?

The social upheaval that'll happen as a result of either is going to be soooo popcorn worthy.

Record someone in 360, record their voice, upload it, let the computer work out unknowns, tell it it what you want, boom, you're having sex with anyone. Your boss, the hot neighbor, the girl who said 'no'. Is it cheating to fark a program? Is it rape to fark a virtual recreation of the girl across the street?

Like I said, popcorn.

It's only cheating if you consider masterbation cheating.  VR environment or robot, they're both just comlicated masturbation aides.  And no, it's not rape to have sex with a simulation of a real person any more than it's rape to fanatsize about that person while masturbating, because that's really all you're doing.

Sexbot replica of your hot neighbor:
Cheating? No.
Rape? No.
Creepy? Yes.


You are raping yourself and must be protected from yourself. See drug laws.

It will be banned.

LowbrowDeluxe: Okay, Cherry 2000, check, Fisto, check.  Fisto Roboto?  Eh, Krieger so close enough.  Space Pope's Don't Date Robots episode?  Check.

Hmm.  Not a lot of ground left to cover without getting obscure.  Of course, this isn't my first clangclang thread, so I could probably go obscure even for Fark.  Nothing from /co/ is likely to be too obscure, and /a/ is pretty much just as easy.  Maybe I could get a bit obscure with something /m/ but I'm sure there are some manly men here who'd spot it.  Which leaves /tg/ and the possibility of scarring someone.  I'm not sure it's worth the cost of victory.


Well, Mike Sorayama is from Venture Brothers, has sexbots, and is name name check for sci fi artist that drew sexbots, that can't be obscure.

Nah, there's just a nonsensical double-standard.

Vibrator is okay, fleshlight is sad and pathetic; smut novel is mildly trashy, hardcore porn is misogynistic filth.

And it has the added benefit of being offensive to everyone involved.

I'm not really buying this. First off, the bot comes in a male version too. Also they're talking about it trying to approximate (the facade of) human emotion. It's basically a high tech realdoll programmed to appear as though it has feelings, and realdolls ARE sad and pathetic and hilarious and trying to make them act human is even more so.

You sound like someone who might say, "why is it ok for a woman to read a romance novel at a coffee shop yet I'll get laughed out of that same establishment for holding hands with my farkdoll." ...It's not always sexism. We'd laugh at a woman with a male bot, too.

From TFA:

Depending on your view 'she' is either at the cutting edge of the human-robot interface, or a modern reflection on some men's difficulties in relating to real-life partners.

I think the opposite is true - some men I know who have had extremely bitter divorces have NO difficulties relating to real life partners.  They COMPLETELY understand what could happen if they go down that road again, and a sex-bot would be a much better alternative for them.

Not saying I agree...just saying that's the reality for some guys.

Also, there's a strong correlation between those guys and the men I refer to as "Functionally Gay". When they were married they spent as much time as possible with male friends doing guy stuff.  The only real time they spent with their families was when it was mandatory (Christmas) or when they wanted to get some happy-fun-sex-time with their wife.
