Are Sex Robots Really Such a Bad Thing?

The time for I, Robot is steadily approaching and that is a very bad thing, according to the Campaign Against Sex Robots (CASR). Instead of using the robots to clean our homes and do our chores, they fear man will be screwing any and all robots with reckless abandon as early as 2025.

The CASR is fully convinced men will be so overcome by their animalistic urges that women and children will cease to exist as humans, in their eyes, and the land will be fraught with rape. All because of sex robots. Consider yourself warned.

I find this topic somewhat fascinating. I’ve always had a special place in my heart for sex dolls, primarily because I find the idea of people having sex with a 125 lb. piece of plastic amusing. They’ve been around for years and I have yet to see men running rampant through the streets with their dick in their hands. I guess once those dolls become animated, men will lose all sense of self-control.

The CASR makes the following claims and premonitions about our future as a society should robots start fucking:

• We believe the development of sex robots further sexually objectifies women and children.
• The vision for sex robots is underscored by reference to prostitute-john exchange which relies on recognizing only the needs and wants of the buyers of sex, the sellers of sex are not attributed subjectivity and reduced to a thing (just like the robot).
• The development of sex robots and the ideas to support their production show the immense horrors still present in the world of prostitution which is built on the “perceived” inferiority of women and children and therefore justifies their use as sex objects.
• We propose that the development of sex robots will further reduce human empathy that can only be developed by an experience of mutual relationship.
• We challenge the view that the development of adult and child sex robots will have a positive benefit to society, but instead further reinforce power relations of inequality and violence.
• We take issue with those arguments that propose that sex robots could help reduce sexual exploitation and violence towards prostituted persons, pointing to all the evidence that shows how technology and the sex trade coexist and reinforce each other creating more demand for human bodies.

Personally, I’ve had sex so bad that I wouldn’t mind if these robots took one for the team. Some men just shouldn’t be allowed to have sex (and some women, too, from what I’ve heard). Perhaps, sex robots are the answer for people who don’t know how to fuck. Then the rest of us can get on with our lives having good sex and not having to worry about bruised breasts and whiskey dick. Just a thought.

For an interesting read, check out the CASR blog. It’s highly entertaining.

    Bad thing? Eh, depends on your moral compass and level of freak that fits you. My thing? No. I need for my partner, in this case, my wife, to be human in the ways that not everyone may consider traditional sexy. The moans, groans, body movements, sounds, smells, tastes, and awkwardness of humans is what makes us whole, especially during "the sexy business". Btw, this is why pr0n does little for me as well. I needs the curves and crevices and coolness of a real woman.

      I certainly agree with you that the touch and feel of a real person is ideal. What perplexes me is the stance that sex robots will be the demise of our society by turning men into ravaging beasts. I find it all a little silly.

      I think CASR's claim is that eventually VR or robots themselves will reach such lifelike realism that they could substitute in such finite ways for a real human being. I could totally see that being a problem if they ever perfected it to that extent, leading to a Demolition Man-like view of sex in the future. I mean, imagine if a guy (or woman, mind you) were able to import his/her favorite celebrity into a VR port in a minute or two and carry on relations, long or short term, with them. What real need would you have for the real thing from there when you already have human beings existing nearly entirely online as it is today? Especially when, if things got annoying or contrite, you could merely pull the plug on that version & upload a new, exciting different one. It's the kind of future Asimov saw coming and we're already on our way, like it or not. CASR is taking it to the extreme but it's totally plausible if you take the long term view of technology & human behavior's current trends.

    While I agree w/CASR wholeheartedly on point #4, society's already trending that way considering the amount of insensitivity exhibited in the online world that's further reflected in the real world as those carrying on 'better' online relationships struggle to interact effectively in real ones. The truly troubling thing I find in CASR's case is the entire viewpoint of this as a 'male problem.' Where are the feminists saying 'Hey, we could get addicted to robot sex too, thus making men obsolete?'
