No matter how you personally feel about sex robots or sexy artificial intelligence (AI), the harsh reality of the situation is that some humans are turned on by robots, and cyborg sex is becoming more and more popular.
According to NUI Galway Law professor John Danaher, sex robot brothels could soon start popping up everywhere, especially in Britain, to replace human sex workers. Because the cold embrace of silicone and lifeless mechanics is very sexy.
Danaher argues that that sex-bots could be even better than humans in bed, and might even be better than humans at forming emotional bonds. Which is really the scariest idea of all.
“The cyborgs can cater for desire for sexual variety, freedom from constraint and complication and fear of lack of sexual success,” Danaher told the Daily Star. “Technology may become better at developing emotional bonds with their clients. They won’t need to 'fake it' the same way as human prostitutes.”
Experts believe that by 2025, Amsterdam’s red light district could be full of sex robots, thus taking us one step closer to a terrifying Ex Machina-like world. Moreover, some even believe that sex as we know it will soon cease to exist thanks to our strange fascination with sexual cyborgs.
Enjoy normal human sex while you can, because it’s going to be hard to come by soon. No pun intended.
