Virtual Girlfriends – MGTOW (Sandman)

Another interesting video from the top MGTOW (men go their own way) on YouTube – Sandman. In this video, he talks about virtual girlfriends, again referring to an idea I’ve made here, that the most popular form of sex dolls/sex robots will soon be ‘AR sex dolls’. These will be rather generic sex dolls (or… Read more »

Harmony Sex Robot Videos

From what we’ve seen in recent weeks of the near finished product that is Harmony, it seems fair to say that creator Matt McMullen’s claim that her sexbot rivals are mere ‘toys’ in comparison is not mere hubris. The dawn of the sex robot age is truly upon us, and Harmony – when she goes… Read more »

‘The Sex Robots Are Coming’ Review

‘The Sex Robots Are Coming’ screened last night on UK terrestrial ‘channel 4’ and I have to say, it was on the whole rather good. Most of it was balanced and the entire documentary focused mainly on a sympathetic profile of a somewhat elderly doll lover called James, interspersed with illuminating ‘behind the scenes’ insights… Read more »

Rise of the Digisexuals?

Another new word to add to the future sex tech lexicon – ‘digisexual’. It seems to have been coined by some academic ‘ethics experts’ at a Canadian university and refers to what they see as the inevitable rise of a new sexual class who will obtain sexual satisfaction predominantly in the virtual world (which apparently… Read more »

Sexbots and Thought Crimes

Some of the most intelligent defences of the right to own sex robots, this YouTuber compares the current anti-sexbot arguments with ‘thought crimes’. At around the 8 minute mark of the second video, he puts forth a prediction that I’ve made here before regarding the likely near future of ‘sexbots’. If virtual reality is combined… Read more »

Sex Robot Demo Video

Short video showing some footage of ‘Samantha’, the first commercial sex robot to go on sale in the UK, as well as interesting background on the growing sexbot debate. Meanwhile it’s been claimed that Samantha was molested and ‘left broken’ by overexcited fans at an electronics show in Austria last week. http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/uk-world-news/xxxx-sex-robot-much-cost-13690886

David Levy shuts down ‘anti-sexbot’ campaigner Kathleen Richardson

At the start of this year, the third ‘International Conference on Future Robot Technologies‘ took place in London – also known as the sexbot conference. It had actually intended to be held in Malaysia a few months before, but was forcibly cancelled by the Conservative Muslim authorities there. The man behind the conference was David… Read more »

Love and Sex with Robots (David Levy) – Brief Book Review

An absorbing, and for the most part plausible case for love and sex with robots. The book is tremendously well researched – even to the point sometimes of being a little dry and academic. For example, when trying to pressgang the reader with a barrage of statistics into recognising the sanity of those who love… Read more »

Dr Kevin Curran on the Inevitability of Sexbots

Dr Kevin Curren is a reader in Computer Science at Ulster University and senior member of the IEEE, providing comment on trends in technology. Recently he gave an interview in which he discussed how robots would integrate into human society, including their roles as sexbots. Q:You’ve talked previously about the inevitability of sex robots. What… Read more »
