Why have sex robots when you have plenty of real humans who are willing to offer their services?

Just legalize it.



It's one of the clearest examples of the government having direct control over your body. Your government, in a free country, can tell you who you are and are not allowed to have sex with. Let that sink in. It's so numbing when you realize how invasive that is.

No.

Only wealthy people can afford a sex robot. The richest segments of the population are already at or below negative replacement levels naturally.

Why do you think so many countries in Europe opened their borders to mass migration from the Muslims? It wasn't altruism. Most of the European countries are at less than 2 children per couple, so they have aging populations that need a working population to support their top heavy welfare states. Hence, they imported what they hoped would be a cheap labor force to support their elders, and it's not working out well for them.

Japan has the same issue, but they are a bit too racist to try mass importation of cheap, poorly educated labor. Instread, in Japan you see "nurse" robots alongside the other.

The movie "Lars and the Real Girl" is a thought provoking insight into this idea.
Would men start to form all the complicated relationship issues with their doll that they go through with real women?
Because maybe, it isn't all simply because women are nuts? Maybe because relationships are complicated, period?

My son recently tried out some virtual reality games, and was telling me it was so amazing, he foresees virtual reality bars, where you can go and experience all sorts of things. I did think of this- if sex was included in the menu, what then?

The natural question to follow is- do men only seek sex, and have no need for relationship?

I suspect they want, and need, more than that, but are not always aware of it. This wouldn't end normal human relations, despite all hopes that it would.

Eventually the robots will be able to get pregnant. You just have to put a real human embryo in her before sex.

Come to think of it, this method would work for several species. Robot heifer, gorilla, etc..

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..
*snip*

Everyone wants independence, or freedom. It's a natural urge once technology and knowledge enable it. And once we have it, we don't tend to fall back to a prior state.

And it's not just about more independence, it's about changing independence. If it was only more independence we'd all ultimately own our own universe and live independently from everybody else. But I don't think that's the universe we live in. We live in communities for a reason and that's to "enjoy" the survival advantage. And nothing we do is perfectly isolated either.

I also want to introduce hte idea of asexual behaviour being just as commonplace or even more popular. If enabling our wildest sexual fantasies at our convenience is an aim, not having those desires might be too, since it might make things even easier. Why be tied to those desires, so outmoded? Independence should include the option to separate from it permanently.

EDIT: Educated populations have less children. It's an interesting phenomenon. You'd think it 'd be the other way around, wouldn't you? Shouldn't wealthier families feel more free to have children? Lots of things in life operate counterintuitively like this. However if you inspect these thigns deeply enough they might then make intuitive sense.
