I was led to believe we'd be doing a lot more mining.

Dole Office Clerk: Occupation?
Comicus: Futurist.
Dole Office Clerk: What?
Comicus: Futurist. I coalesce the vapors of human experience into a viable and meaningful comprehension of where society and technology are heading in order to predict what life will be like in the future.
Dole Office Clerk: Oh, a *bullshiat* artist!
Comicus: *Grumble*...
Dole Office Clerk: Did you bullshiat last week?
Comicus: No.
Dole Office Clerk: Did you *try* to bullshiat last week?
Comicus: Yes!

Telos: I think that would depend on how "accepted" they become. The use of sex toys by men is often seen as emasculating because, well, why can't you get a real woman instead? If that attitude continues and prevails I don't think sex-bots would help much.

I just say "Look, women are insane, and I don't have the time right now. Ring up my lube already, I'm double-parked!"

*just kidding, I'd never double park

Well, we can have sex with robots and cut off our limbs now. Those robots will not be sexbots and we will have no advanced prosthetics to replace our removed limbs, but necessity is the mother of invention so maybe we should not be trying to put the cart before the horse.

Affordable sexbots will save civilization.  And destroy productivity, but who cares when the rest of society is pacified.
