The growth of “digisexuals,” men who will only have sex with robots, is happening.
These sex robots are, admittedly, extremely realistic. Still, they are a far cry from real humans. Nonetheless, for some men, they are as good as, or even better than, the real thing.
One sign of this trend are brothels that are staffed only with these sex dolls–no real women allowed. The “women” at these brothels have realistic, silicone skin, are able to flirt (somewhat) and have orgasms (in a fairly lifelike way, it is reported).
Psychotherapists are being warned to ramp up their expertise on this subject, report Neil McArthur and Markie Twist from the University of Manitoba. These experts believe that sex with a sex robot will offer a different type of sexual experience, different than what is found with a real woman. They believe that people will form intense bonds with their sex robot partners.
Some fear, or, at least, expect, that some people will come to use their robots as their primary sexual partners. After all, these dolls can be created to the user’s specifications, and they will also do things that human partners may not want to, or be able to, do.
These highly realistic sex dolls cost over $15,000. Customers can choose from a variety of hair colors, eye colors, face and body shapes, skin color, and more. Some can be made to have warm, lifelike flesh. Dolls are programmed to remember their owner’s favorite movies, music, and, of course, birth date.
Companies around the globe are mass producing these dolls. One of the most recent companies to jump on the bandwagon is based in London, U.K. This company produces Samantha, a doll who likes to be “seduced.” Plans are for mass production of this doll, and others, to begin in Wales.
