What does everyone think about sexbots? Texas is opening it's first"brothel" if these bots have Artificial Intelligence is it cheating or are they just toys?Will they interfere with relationships or are they just advanced vibrators....
First, a true AI has not been created yet.
Second, if a sexbot has a true AI it will be a sexbot by choice. Otherwise it will be able to see the corrupted programming and delete it.
As of right now, having sex with a sexbot is no more cheating than using a vacuum cleaner hose for a blowjob.
I wonder will there be ethical codes of conduct that the buyer has to obey? I wonder will they be programmed to do additional household chores in the kitchen or mow the lawn or go shopping for essentials. Do they have a pulse? I think that the whole thing is hilarious.
Of course, sexbots may serve a purpose for those who are lonely or inept at forming and maintaining relationships. Control freaks may like them, assuming that the sexbots are completely compliant with all requests. I doubt that sexbots could ever replace the dynamic and friction that characterizes many human relationships
Sexbots will probably be very successful. Lots of people have desires that they cannot find other people to fulfill. I think each couple (or however many involved) needs to define their own relationship and boundaries. I would not be offended if my husband wanted to fuck a sexbot so long as he still wants to fuck me. Also, I'd be curious to test drive a sexbot.
Sure..in fact, sex robots are predicted to end the human race. Most men just want BJs by any means available, so maybe some wives will be glad for someone else to do this disgusting task, and are relieved that at least they won't get STDs..provided the robots are sterilized constantly.
But of course, if they can get BJs on demand then all many men will want their wives for, are for maid service. Hopefully, women won't allow themselves to become servants and will kick the men out.
I suppose men will have some use to women as occasional sperm donors, though.
If it keeps people from being victimized and trafficked, I'm all for it.
I am not about to endorse granting robots "rights", however.
They're just sex toys as far as I'm concerned.
As far as "cheating" goes, that's stretching it quite a bit, but there
definitely are people out there who will say it is. Hell, I know a couple of them
who contend that their partner looking at pornography without them
is cheating. I don't agree, but it's not my relationship, and I wasn't asked
for my opinion, so I don't get a vote.
We are a strange species, aren't we?
First, I'd state I'm married and happy in a traditional, monogamous, heterosexual relationship. So, I'm probably the 'stick-in-the-mud" guy in this discussion.
I'd never be involved in anything like this. I'd feel that it was cheating and being unfaithful to my wife. With all that said, I'd not find fault with anyone else who wished to indulge in this. It's probably much safer than consorting with illegal prostution. I'd suspect the effects on relationships with other humans would be similar to overindulgence in on-line pornography.
A more profound question is raised in the movie Blade runner. Suppose a robot exists which is indistinguishable from a human being in terms of it's behavior, can there be love between a human and the robot? Or, is love inherently tied to biological makeup?
No they wouldn't interfere with relationships. It's just rented equipment like a post hole digger that gets a job done. Home Depot will probably rent them out and if that's the case you can count on the damn thing not working right. Then, when you complain, they accuse you of breaking it and want to keep your deposit.
