Robot manufacturers’ interest in producing sex robots, for now, female robots, has irked Dr Kathleen Richardson of Leicester U.K.
She, being a robot ethicist, is on a campaign to discourage peoples’ growing interest in using humanoid robots for sexual intimacy.
With advancement in artificial intelligence (AI) technology and increase in production of humanoids, mimicking more like human beings, Dr Kathleen believes, this sexual practice would not be uncommon in the future.
She thinks sex robots would hamper intimate relationships between spouses. Human relationships would greatly suffer from this technological innovation.
Further, such an activity would deteriorate the image of women in the society as a sole means of physical intimacy.
On the contrary, supporters of sex robots are pleased about its growing market. They believe the sexual humanoids would be supportive to millions of people out there.
People having difficulties finding real sex partners or those having been divorced, would quest their thirst for sex in this new way.
There are millions in the world, who either are obese or have other serious diseases. Such people easily get rejected by the persons of opposite sex. Sex robots, thus, remain the only alternative for them.
Such a naturally arising demand for sex robots has attracted tech firms to tap this potentially large market.
Abyss creations has shown interest in launching sex robots in the market. For now, the company sells sex toys.
Another company true companion would soon be launching the world’s first sex robot doll named “Roxxxy”.
According to the company representative Dr Douglas Hines, Roxxxy, would be built in with natural human like characteristics.
AI used in the doll would enable it to understand the likes and dislikes of its owners. The doll would respond both, verbally and non-verbally in a way, that would feel natural.
Dr.Douglas, in response to Dr Kathleen’s criticism, says the time spent by the sex dolls in physical sex would just be a small part of the total time. Most of the time would be spent in interactions, socializing and romanticism.
Roxxxy, according to Mr Hines, would price $7000 in the market and it already has had large number of pre orders.
Whether the future sex robots lifestyle would harm the society or not, it still remains to be seen, but one benefit is clear.
There are many People out there with dominating character. they want to force their wills on their partners, forcing them to lead their way of lifestyles.
Such people must buy a sex robot instead of partnering with real humans. Robots, being inherently insensitive, can easily bear their torture!
