Mecha-Human Relationships – Only a Matter of Time, say researchers

japanese-love-dollsTwo researchers from the Victoria Management School in Wellington, New Zealand, have predicted the rise of robotic prostitutes by the year 2050.

Ian Yeoman and Michelle Mars speculate that once fully functional robotic humans are a reality, that they will be used in android brothels because of the increase in STDs, particularly HIV, which by 2050 has mutated and is resistant to many drugs.

The researchers suggest that the androids will be made of “bacteria resistant fibre… guaranteeing no sexually transmitted diseases are transferred between consumers.”

The production and use of lifelike pleasure machines could effectively stop the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, as well as stem the rise in human trafficking associated with the sex trade.

They believe that clients would pay a fee to enter for an ‘all-inclusive service’, from lap dancing to full intercourse, from ‘a range of sexual gods and goddesses of different ethnicities, body shapes, ages, languages and sexual features’.

Android sex workers may also offer a ‘guilt free’ experience for men, they suggest.

This fantasy world however may be more than just mere speculation, given that Japan is already ahead of the rest of the world when it comes to ‘love dolls.’

A Japanese company in fact has been making life-sized and anatomically correct love dolls for more than 30 years, initially targeting handicapped men who might find it difficult to find a partner.

Orient Industry Co. now makes over 80 love dolls a month that sell for between $850 and $5,500 each. The more expensive models are made of silicon and have 35 movable joints.

Nearly all of the people who buy these dolls are single men and about 60 percent of them are over the age of 40, a company official said.

“Nowadays, women are sometimes more dominant than men in the real world, and they don’t always pay attention to men,” said Hideo Tsuchiya, the company’s president.

“More and more men are finding themselves miserable so we’re making these dolls partly in support of men.”

The anonymity of buying a sex doll over the Internet has helped the business grow but Orient Industry also has a showroom displaying its wares.

Many have parted lips, prominent breasts and are shown splayed across beds or chairs in poses similar to those adopted by prostitutes in sex shops.
