Human ingenuity has given us a new information medium of staggering potential, a major use for which is pornography. Technology continues to advance, so that we are on the verge of artificial intelligence and advanced robotics, a major application for which appears to be sex robots. But at least remembering what sex is for, one designer of animatronic sex dolls is now devising a way to have a baby with one.
Sex robots represent the new horizon of sexual degradation. The life-size Barbie-style dolls are the next step in the dehumanization of sex and the objectification of women. They are literally sex objects. Now men can have sex without any kind of human relationship, with no need for mutuality or regard for feelings or obligations.
Men never have to worry about getting turned down by a sex robot. Nor do they have to worry about being brought down like Harvey Weinstein for sexual assault and abuse. With a sex robot, you don’t have to worry about consent. (Though are machines capable of consent?)
The devices demonstrate that many men are interested in sex without consent. The sex robots employ audio technology, enabling them to “talk” to their user and to make appropriate sounds. But at least one model has a setting that makes the doll say “no” to sex and to resist what the user is doing to her. The technology allows users to rape their robots.
When a sex robot was put on display at a technology convention, male techies acted like rutting animals. Their abuse fantasies turned the expensive robot into a pile of broken, filthy plastic.
There is evidence that some men prefer the dolls to women. European brothels are already including sex robots with their offerings. And, reportedly, they are proving more popular with their customers than human prostitutes. To the point that some brothels feature nothing but sex robots. Wives reportedly are dropping their husbands off at the robot brothel and waiting for them at the curb, apparently reasoning that self-gratification into a piece of woman-shaped plastic is not adultery.One of the designers of sex robots, Sergi Santos from Barcelona, has higher aspirations for his inventions. The engineer believes that in the future, men will marry their sex robots. And he has already figured out how the couple can have babies.
Here is what Santos thinks having a baby consists of. Quoted from Josh Robbins, Sex robot inventor says he will soon have ‘children’ with his creations, International Business Times:
“I can make them have a baby. It’s not so difficult. I would love to have a child with a robot. Using the brain I have already created, I would program it with a genome so he or she could have moral values, plus concepts of beauty, justice and the values that humans have.
“To create a child with this robot it would be extremely simple. I would make an algorithm of what I personally believe about these concepts, and then shuffle it with what she thinks and then 3D print it.”
“That’s it. I 3D print the robot that is the child of me and the robot…I don’t see any complications.”
He thinks that the robot he has programmed to speak has a “brain,” complete with moral values and a sense of justice and beauty! He thinks conceiving a baby involves a couple merging not their DNA but their beliefs! The couple will give birth by printing out the baby on a 3D printer!
He doesn’t see any complications. Indeed, a robot baby wouldn’t have the complications of diapers and late night feedings. If it cries, you can just shut it off. The robot baby would never grow, so it would be frozen forever at a stage of cuteness, with no need to always be buying it new clothes and shoes. There would be no educational expenses, no discipline problems, and no parental worries.
Of course, a robot baby wouldn’t grow up, make you proud, have a robot family of its own, and be a comfort in one’s old age.
The cluelessness about sexuality, parenting, and reality shown by men who want to play with dolls—whether sex dolls or baby dolls—heralds the end of reproduction, a Darwinian apocalypse, and is the final legacy of the sexual revolution.
