Rise of the Sexbots – glimpsing into the future
The rise of sexbots is most definitely going to change the facet of human sexuality. They will have both a positive and negative impact.
There are already doll brothels operating in South Korea, Japan and Spain, while the first robotic oral sex coffee shop opened in Paddington, west London, last year.
Sexbots have rapidly moved into our social fabric which leads to people raising questions.
Questions that have no easy answers and are permeated with some moral concerns.
Will sexbots increase the objectification of women? Possibly, yes. Sexbots could fulfil sexist male sexual fantasies.
Will paedophiles want to safely act out their fantasies in a no-harm sexual safe space with their ageless sexbot? Most likely, and in this aspect, it could be positive.
Will others engage in rape fantasies? Likely too.
Let’s take a look at the story about Masayuki Ozaki, a man who loves his sex doll. Ozaki claims that his sex doll is so much better than his wife. He also reported that “whatever problems I have, Mayu is always there waiting for me. I love her to bits and want to be with her forever.”
The world of ‘Westworld’ sexbots is here
Although the existence of sexbots leaves us with a sense of unease, not all is gloom. Sexbots will decidedly have some positive influence in the lives of the disabled community, as well as with people with a host of sexual difficulties. Sexbots could be used to keep the elderly company in care homes and help couples enjoy long distances sexual relationships.
In the very near future, sexbots could be used not just as a fetish, but for sexual therapy and as companions for lonely, disabled or older people.
Interesting to see what the future holds for humans and sexbots…..
