In the future, we’ll all be coming home to exasperatingly sexy robots who will compliantly bend to our every passing fancy. And since that sounds so great, an uptight sex therapist has come forward to a.) rain on all this speculative sexiness, and b.) warn us, in no uncertain terms, that we all run the risk of becoming very addicted to these hot-to-trot droids.
As The Daily Star reports, a “top robotics expert” is warning that a new line of cyborgs developed to be superlative lovers will get us “hooked.”
“Robotic sex may become addictive,” said American Research Fellow and certifiable buzzkill Joel Snell from Kirkwood College.
Sexbots would always be available and could never say no, so addictions would be easy to feed.
People may become obsessed by their ever faithful, ever pleasing sex robot lovers.
“People will rearrange their lives to accommodate their addictions.”
These powerful robots are going to be far better at sex than you are, Dave. They won’t give sass (unless you hit the “sass” button) and won’t talk back unless you’ve programmed them to talk back . They’re going to be incredibly hot and you won’t be able to resist and you will get addicted. And that’s that.
“Robotic sex may become better than human sex,” Snell drones on. “Like many other technologies that have replaced human endeavors, robots could surpass human technique. Because they would be programmable, sexbots would meet each individual user’s needs.”
But a “top sex therapist” named Gurpreet Singh wants Snell to stop bumming everyone out, and says these sex robots could be a good thing.
A very good thing, indeed.
“Who are we to judge people who want to have sex with robots?”
Let people enjoy sex robots – they will work in the same way couples introduce a toy into a sexual relationship.
“And if both parties agree, I see nothing wrong.”
Now all these people need to immediately stop talking unless they’re planning to tell us where we can get our hands on these goddamn addictive sexy robots.
