Seriously though do you believe that David Levy is right about the level of robotic sophistication achievable within the time frame he mentioned? And would society really put up with it? Think about it. Plastic but sexy Jolene or Brad gets your rocks off and when you want a child you go to the lab. One test tube later you’re a prospective father or mother with a plastic spouse who never says no.

I think it could happen. I think a lot of people actully won't accept it, but yet for people who just go about having sex all the time, not caring who with, etc. It's be good for them... can't get it pregnant(hopefully), no chance of STD's(hopefully)... one day they might be as advanced as to be thought, sentient beings, if they aren't all ready.

Someone mentioned earlier the modern obsession with instant gratification...I think porn just feeds on this problem. For some porn can become a full blown addiction and the results aren't just that men aren't attracted to their wives anymore, but that they don't even bother to interact with them in other ways, like any other type of addict might.
