Activists Force Baidu to Drop Sexy Virtual Assistant Vivi

Given that social justice activists were already demanding that home digital assistants such as Siri and Alexa be given protection from sexual harassment, it’s unsurprising that Chinese tech giant Badiu’s plans to boost VR headset sales with a sexy AI ‘virtual girlfriend’ named Vivi have been dropped within days of the announcement. Baidu-owned video platform… Read more »

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 »

Activists Demand Protection for Alexa & Siri from Sexual Harassment

Do digital assistants such as Alexa and Siri have rights? They do if they have a female voice and don’t reply with a scolding tone to their owner that he has a small penis in response to any sexually inappropriate comment. At least, that is the belief of radical activists who are demanding that tech… Read more »

Pornstar August Ames Dies Aged 23

Very sad to read that the beautiful actress August Ames has died aged just 23, apparently from suicide. There has been speculation that she had been suffering from long term depression and may have been pushed over the edge by an online campaign conducted against her recently by gay SJWs which targeted her for refusing… Read more »

Talking to Women in the Street to be Made Ilegal in UK

Just in time for the arrival of sex robots, the UK looks set to make it a crime to talk to women in the street, wolf-whistle or wink at attractive women, or take photographs of women in public without consent. This follows a ‘successful’ trial of the policy in the county of Nottinghamshire. Nottinghamshire Police… 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 »

British TV Trailer for ‘The Sex Robots Are Coming’

A documentary entitled ‘The Sex Robots Are Coming’ is to be aired on the British Channel 4 on Thursday November 30th.

60% of Women Consider Looking at Breasts Sexual Harassment

A large UK poll commissioned in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal has revealed shifting trends as to how women construe sexual harassment.

Although there are differences between older and younger women, with older women typically… Read more »

American luxury sex doll retailer ‘Silicone Wives’ has started taking online orders for a ‘sex robot’ called Emma. The robot is Chinese made and apparently the first of its kind made in that country.

Facial Features Indicate Sex Drive – the Return of Phrenology?

Phrenology is the ‘science’ of reading personality characteristics from the shape of the skull. It is now universally discredited and somewhat notorious as representing the peak of 19th century pseudoscience. However, it appears to be making something of a comeback if two recent studies that claim the characteristics of a person’s sexuality can be interpreted… 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

Anti-sexbot campaigner wants to ban a robot that doesn’t exist

A radical feminist campaigner in the UK demanded last week that a sexbot that supposedly has a pre-programmed personality named ‘Frigid Farrah’ be banned lest it encourage rape. The problem is that the sexbot in question likely doesn’t exist, as the following short YouTube video explains. https://www.rt.com/uk/404062-robot-sex-doll-rape/

Scientists to Mix DNA of Women and Foxes through CRISPR?

The above post from a Facebook transhumanist group is obviously intended to be funny (and it is!), but perhaps it raises some interesting points. For example, in the not too distant future, when gene editing for cosmetic and personal (and sexual) enhancement is perhaps commonplace, genes taken from animals might be regularly inserted into humans.… Read more »

Killer Sex Robots?

Another reason that sex robots simply must be banned NOW – hackers could control your sexbot in order to murder you! https://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/3017157/tabloid-panic-hackers-could-programme-sex-robots-to-kill THE UNITED KINGDOM’S RELIABLE TABLOID NEWSPAPERS have taken time out for snooping through bins and telephone records to pay heed to an Australian doctor who has sex robots, hackers and death on his… Read more »

When Will True Immersive VR Porn Arrive?

We all know that virtual reality is a long way from the finished article, but just when will truly immersive porn arrive, and what will it take for it to get here? Here is renowned futorologist and inventor Ray Kurzweil (particularly famous for promoting the idea of the ‘Singularity’) discussing the future of virtual reality… Read more »

Researchers reconstruct human faces from their genomes

CRAIG VENTER, a biologist and boss of Human Longevity, a San Diego-based company that is building the world’s largest genomic database, is something of a rebel. In the late 1990s he declared that the international, publicly funded project to sequence the human genome was going about it the wrong way, and he developed a cheaper… Read more »

Brothels ‘Can’t Compete with Tinder’

It’s reported that an Australian brothel ‘can’t compete with easy online hookups’. Wait until the sexbots arrive.. Sex isn’t selling — at least not at one legal Aussie brothel, whose owner says online dating apps and tighter regulations are pinching her bottom line. “Tinder and these sex dating sites have absolutely affected us,” the owner,… Read more »

At the start of this year, the third ‘International Conference on Future Robot Technologies‘ took place in London – also known as the sexbot conference.
