Can you imagine having sex with a robot in five years’ time?

…having sex with a robot is nothing other than a further evolutionary step that began with interracial marriages.

Ok… this was rather disturbing for me. Not the kind of bang I was referring to when I screamed “I will start this year with a BANG!᾿ The rather disturbing thesis has now been published as a book: Love and Sex with Robots- The Evolution of Human-Robot Relationships by David Levy. And don’t get me started with the climax at the end of the sex book - “Great sex on tap for everyone, 24/7. What’s not to like?᾿ – My answer: What the f*** happened to romance?

According to Mr. Levy’s belief, Massachusetts will be the first state to legalize human-robot marriages. (Now we have moved from just having sex with robots to getting leally married to them :roll: ) “Massachusetts is more liberal than most other jurisdictions in the U.S. and it has been at the forefront of same-sex marriage,᾿ declares Mr. Levy. “There’s also a lot of high-tech research there at places like MIT.᾿

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

Lemme get this straight. Does he actually implying that those liberal and open about gay marriages will embrace humping and marrying robots whole heartedly?

Well, he goes on to say that these robots will be mere upgrades of blowup dolls. : “It’s just a matter of adding some electronics to add some vibration. That’s fairly primitive in terms of robotics. The technology is already there.᾿ (Is this description supposed to be flattering?)

One thing I kinda questioned about Mr. Levy is that he’s happily married – not to mention that he would try having sex with a robot and wouldn’t mind if his wife tried it too. Pardon me guys but at this point, I am trying to imagine what his sex life has been like up until this point.

Looking back, Henrik Christensen, the founder of the European Robotics Research Network declared in 2006 modestly people will be having sex with robots within five years. So mark your calendars guys coz in 2011 you will be humping you some Tom Cruise doll, or Halle Berry, or whichever celebrity you have ever fantasized about … with a little vibrations and image licensing rights, they will be all yours.

Does he think every human will agree to marry robots? His answer is probably not. “But will there be a subset of people? There are people ready right now to marry sex toys᾿ Levy adds. In essence, according to Levy, people who have trouble establishing meaningful relationships with humans will welcome the robots gladly: “…those who are extremely shy, or have psychological problems or are just plain ugly or have unpleasant personalities.᾿

For Pete’s sake! Wait a minute! Does this guy really believe that those who are beautiful are the only ones that get laid? Looks isn’t the only factor determining whether you will or won’t get your grove on.

Here’s his funny side of the story – Much as Levy admits that these robots will cause friction in traditional human-human marriages, he declares modestly: “Maybe some other relationships could welcome a robot. Instead of a woman saying ‘not tonight, darling, I have a headache,’ you could get ‘I have a headache, darling. Why not use your robot?’᾿

Leaving his sexism behind, according to Levy, a man who has wrapped himself up in chess and artificial intelligence, having sex with a robot is nothing other than a further evolutionary step that began with interracial marriages. – Say what?

Well this isn’t such a good example. And call me old fashioned or someone that is standing in the way of progression, but I can’t bring myself to grasp that a robot could ever take the place of people that I love. So he led a team that won the 1997 Loebner Prize (kinda like the world championship of artificially intelligent conversational software). Seriously, do you see this coming?

    I've read in an old Penthouse magazine that fruits & vegetables can be useful, plus they're environmentally friendly.

    we sometimes date men who behave like robots in bed and trust me you'll never enjoy having sex with such a man but look on the bright side in case we end up screwing robots ladies-no birth control;)a.i.d.s,and for some of us who like having shag mates-no emotional attachments.thumbs up for the preson who invents it(robo sex)

    Pardon my addition, but aren't many women doing that all ready? With the skyrocketing sales of vibrators, it begs the question, aren't we there right now? Sorry...lol just read bornfree's post..we obviously look at the world similarly...lol

    I guess if they can also make him rich and good-looking - might be worth a try.

    I'd could imagine having sex with a robot as long as we are married. But seriously, there are robotic devices out there today & I'm sure that there will be refinements in the future, first for the very rich & then affordable to everbody, sorta like HD TV.

    Blow up dolls have been around for ages so this isn't very surprising. Hey it might even help prevent diseases from spreading! LOL

    "Seriously, do you see this coming?" definitely along with more gross,weird and unimaginable prospects than people humping and having oral sex with a blown up piece of plastic and some electronics. if a man can look at the beautiful and rewarding , completely human interracial relationships and see that as a step to robotic love , i see it as a insult and racist mentality still alive and well.....(let me say i'm an idiot for even letting my self get drawn into this) anything is possible ,i really have better things to do like finding and giving my unconditional love to one of god's most beautiful creations , a black woman .

    I got news for you Ria...some of us have been in relationships where we felt like we were with a robot :) Get into the routine, and that's what it feels like. I do want to say this...our crazy country won't accept same sex marriages, but it will be okay to marry a robot??? Lawd ham mercy!!! I thought the right wing people said marriage should be between a man and a woman...I saw no mention of it being okay for man and robot.
