It seems that it is just a matter of time before man starts to copulate with a machine. This will open pandora’s box, sooner or later it will lead to groups demanding that robots be given equal rights. Eventually, the robots themselves might want to split from us after seeing how stupid and idiotic most humans are. After all, if you look at the human race from far, it is the most destructive force on this planet. In that sense, one could argue that humans are far more destructive than the deadliest virus. However, this is a topic for another day.
Virtual sex and copulating with robots will be popular among high-income households by 2030, according to a report. Futurologist Dr Ian Pearson has released a study looking at the future of the sex industry, which highlights the dramatic increase in spending on sex toys that will account for over £1bn ($1.5bn) in the UK market. “The sex market in 20 years could be three times bigger than today and seven times bigger by 2050,” he said. Many people are horrified at the idea of sex with inanimate objects but Pearson points out robotic sex toys such as vibrators have been used for centuries and sex with robots is the next step forward.
He suggests that when robots become more lifelike, people will be less put off by having sex with them. Pearson said: “A lot of people will still have reservations about sex with robots at first but gradually as they get used to them, as the AI and mechanical behaviour and their feel improves, and they start to become friends with strong emotional bonds, that squeamishness will gradually evaporate.” “While some people will enthusiastically embrace relationship-free robot sex as soon as they can afford one, as early as 2025, it won’t have much chance of overtaking sex with humans overall until 2050,” he added in a Telegraph report. Pearson released the study in partnership with Bondara, one of the UK’s leading sex toy shops. Full story
The video below examines the issue of sex and love with robots. Based on the surgings sales of sex toys it seems that the sex robots are going to be embraced with gusto. Especially, when you think that these bots will look as good or even better than the average human, have unlimited energy and never complain.
