Sex robots are no longer a thing of the future. They are here, they are now and they are changing the way we look at one of the most important aspects of human interaction, sex.
What began as a device which could be used by people to satisfy their physical need has grown to find numerous uses which may not have been imagined by the creators when they thought of devising robots which could provide physical gratification.
Here, we have 10 of the weirdest uses these sex robots have been put to and may be used as in the coming few years.
Yes! If you think that an object like a sex robot is the last thing your child should be exposed to, then you are in for a rude surprise. A study by Tufts University revealed that more and more people are open to the use of sex robots for sex education. The argument is simply that if they are learning about it, why not use a robot for a better explanation. Weirdly, it does make sense to some extent.
People who find themselves alone, seeking company but have not been able to do so for one reason or the other are buying sex robots for precisely this reason.
They miss the comfort of contact, they miss someone's presence by their side and it affects them at an emotional level. A sex robot, with human-like features and feel, are selling like hot cakes to satisfy the need of company. Some creators are also creating robots to give people the entire 'girlfriend' experience.
With the rapid strides we have made in the field of Artificial Intelligence, these sex robots have evolved to have actual conversations with you. They have been programmed in such a way that they can understand your questions and choose from a range of replies.
Going further, they would be able to formulate their own responses and even take into account the context of the conversation, which in itself would be quite a leap forward.
Stories have emerged of sex robots that have been asked by customers to be programmed in such a way that they mimic the voice of a loved one. They are helping people who have lost their spouses to grieve at their own pace and give them support in the voice that they miss the most.
People are adding sex robots to their virtual reality devices to gain an experience which is even more life-like than they could have imagined. They put on their VR devices to create a visual scene in front of them while they use the robots for the physical stimulation. Human imagination at its best or worst? You decide.
Sex robots were expected to satisfy certain fantasies, as there may be fetishes which a partner may not agree to. There may be sexual acts which only one partner may prefer while the other may abhor. Given such a scenario, sex robots are playing the part of creating those sexual experiences which a person may not have with their real partner.
Sex robots are becoming more than just an object of gratification. As we mentioned earlier, they are being used for company, talking and even for grieving and hence it was a matter of time before they would be used to cater to an entire range of emotional support they could offer their masters. Pepper, for example, is a sex robot which can get sad when you are sad and happy when you are happy. What would they think of next?
Now, there may be people who are most interested in specific services like oral sex or something else and may not be looking for the entire sexual experience. For them, companies have come up with sex robots are specifically designed to be better at those services than anything else. A customized sex robot for increased pleasure, what else could someone ask for?
Rape is more about the exertion of power than the act of sex itself. It is one of the most brutal ways of self-imposition and against all moral or humanistic principles of society. But rape still happens all the time which shows the insatiable urge of some people to indulge in the act forcefully. Now, sex robots have been created which can stimulate rape. We aren't sure if it would help reduce the incidences of rape or not but it is creepy, nevertheless.
Marriage is supposed to be the pinnacle of human intimacy where two people come together mind, body, and soul to be with each other for life, right? Well, that may be the thing of the past.
More and more people are exploring the possibilities of marrying a sex robot and given how sophisticated these robots are getting, it would not be surprising that people looking for their ideal spouses may actually get themselves a customized one.
We do not know what the future holds or to what extent would these artificial creatures take over our lives but one thing is for sure that they are raising serious doubts about our own capacity to maintain healthy relationships in the first place. Some may see it as evil, others as a necessity, but the fact remains that with reduced human-human interaction, we may actually end up being more reliant on the robots.
