The race to build the world’s first sex robot - going too far?

Opening Argument

The $30bn sex tech industry is about to unveil its biggest blockbuster: a $15,000 robot companion that talks, learns, and never says no
https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/apr/27/race-to-build-world-first-sex-robot

The article is a long read, but really fascinating that gives us a history lesson and a glimpse into the future.

Is it going too far, or is another great invention applying AI?
While many of the benefits are pretty self explanatory - companionship and on demand satisfation - ethical and social issues come to the top of the list of concerns.

  • It's way too far, but there may be a market for the robot.

    @passedbill, i think that you are right.  The $30bb current market will be explode, especially as the robot will drop in price from $15k to sub $1k and technology will exponentially improve.  Scary though about prospects of humanity as it evolves.

  • The only thing this supports is the creeps we already have.  Have we not learned from our movies though?  https://moviepilot.com/posts/2883113

    Let's not add any more features please....

  • I disagree with @supersith89 , I see your point in the debate on promoting people with little to no sex lives and promoting youngsters into this lifestyle. Although, I think that people would be able to practices safe sex with the bots and due to that may decrease unplanned parent hood.

  • Yea, but then you have the problem of sex before marriage.  I know it isn't human, but I'm sure it is pretty wrong.  
  • it will definitely introduce social disfunction in many cases.  All these guys who will now expect similar kiss- and obidience from real women will set unsustainable expectations that will make marriages fail.

    WhyTrump - a good question
  • It's not a good idea and can affect human reproduction.
  • I want one.....but, it's probably not a good idea for our society

  • This is going way too far and can hurt natural human reproduction etc.
