So, This may be a bit of fun but it is a topic that I think by the end of our lifetimes may well be asked seriously. Also feel free to delete if I
have somehow stepped on any T AND C with this post...
We are living in a world that technologically is changing at a fast rate, A.I tech is starting to mirror actual Human behavior so it goes without
saying since Sex and porn is one of the most searched material on the internet it will only be a matter of time before a Human like sex robot is
released that is so life like that I believe that people may well begin to turn their backs to regular sexual encounters..
My thinking regarding this is around the changing wants that people have and the instant need for fulfillment, Everything now has to be instant, how
many people get f#cked off if their internet takes a few extra seconds to load!!!.. Human behavior has changed in one generation and we are only about
20 years into a technological age.
Sexual behavior is also changing as it is now far more accepted to be sexually interested in any number of things.
So moving on, I started to think will we have a generation coming that will almost totally turn their back on sexual interaction with each other or at
least will men have far more limited contact with women if a realistic quality sex robot was widely available?.
There was the Futurama episode that aired in 2001 "I dated a Robot" that touched on this subject that I believe was actually spot on in their
I can obviously only look at this from a man's view point as that is what I am but there does seem to be a large number of men that are becoming
disenfranchised with the thought of what a "regular" relationship will bring long term and looking at current marriage figures shows a drastic
decline in the number of people getting hitched.
So that moves me onto my point of will the world population be reduced if a sex robot industry is produced that can market units that will full fill a
humans physical sexual want plus more?, will Humans come to the point where they want sexual gratification regardless of how that comes and if a A.I
unit is on tap why would people make a effort to go the "old fashioned route".
Sure people will say "Oh but I love the connection me and my partner have", that is fine but call me cynical, I believe that there is now and will
be even more people in the future that simply want their sexual fix without all the long term effort that a regular relationship brings. Just look at
the infidelity rate within marriage it is huge.
Infidelity Statistics Marriage Infidelity Statistics
Data Percent of married women who have strayed at least once during their married lives 14 %
Percentage of men and women who admit to having an affair with a co-worker 36 %
Percentage of men and women who admit to infidelity on business trips 35%
Imagine what would happen if you could have a custom sexual partner that could be customised to the purchasers every last want and even change with
updates etc etc...
My time scale for this tech to be possible will be around 30-50 years, who knows what the world will look like but I do believe that it is a subject
that we will be hearing more and more about and only time will tell if it turns into a epidemic of mechanical love.
Like I said this isn't meant to be a case study on the future of human sexual behavior but it is something that people on here may find interesting
to think about. If world population control is a agenda?? then this could be a route that is used, the counter argument will no doubt be that it is
the poorer countries in the world that are producing the most humans and these would be the least likely places to get such tech but as with anything
who know what the future holds...
Universities are even discussing love droids and what they will bring to the table
