Sex robots, once deemed a thing of the future, are now a thing of the present. So-called sex robots are more human than ever and with continued improvements feel and sound more human. With these robots, fantasies can be played out especially with those that don’t have the word no in their vocabulary.
However, not everyone is impressed. Many religious and scientist groups have spoken out on this very subject claiming that it could increase the rate of sex crimes in our society. Noel Sharkey, one such artificial intelligence specialist, says that having sex with a robot could encourage rape and pedophilia.
Sharkey said, “I can tell you that the sex robots are certainly coming. I can’t think of any other way to say it. There are a bunch of companies making these [things] and beginning to ship orders in fact, and we thought policymakers and the public should really know what was going on.”
Sex is already a commodity for many individuals, and with the rise in such sex toys, Kathryn Taylor who assists the Salvation Army’s anti-trafficking and modern slavery unit says that this view could only increase.
Right Wing News reports:
Sex robots have evidently become more popular in brothels across the world, especially as they become more and more realistic. There are a lot of men who love them, but some are not as thrilled — some scientists and ethicists are saying that sex robots are dangerous.
Technology has enabled sex robots to appear more human than ever before. It’s believed that by the end of the year, there will be sex robots on the market with human-like skin, who are responsive to touch and are able to “talk dirty” to users. And brothels across the world have been making the sex robots available for their patrons, where men can live out their “wildest fantasies” with robots who can’t say no.
