The future of sex tourism is with robot prostitutes — seriously? Researchers explored how Amsterdam’s red-light district might operate by 2050, and decided android prostitutes will be the norm because they don’t transmit sexual disease or promote the sex-slave industry.
“Roxxxy,” the world’s first sex robot, was unveiled this year at the Las Vegas’ Adult Entertainment Expo. According to Discovery.com, this robot “boasts artificial intelligence, speech recognition technology and a bevy of recorded phrases, making it able to, on some levels, converse with her mate.” If you don’t like Roxxxy, just turn her into something more suitable because she also has a personality-changer, an Internet connection to receive software and dialog updates, all for a price between $7,000 to $9,000. Profiles of these “custom” personalities are stored as “Frigid Farrah,” naive “Young Yoko,” “Wild Wendy,” experienced “Mature Martha” and adventurous “S&M Susan.” People could create and modify their own robot online. What if some pervert decides he wants a 6-year old girl? Would the company do that if paid enough? Can you see where this could lead?
A new survey has found that one in five in the U.K. would be willing to have sex with robots, and if orders are any indication that’s true, then the custom pre-orders will greatly exceed the initial orders at the expo which reached above 4,000.
Inventor, Douglas Hines, founder of TrueCompanion, says this is going to be the future of robotics. Great. As if the porn industry wasn’t enough to kill real love, now we are going to make sex with robots “normal.” How can this ever be normal? It can’t! It is a lie, and people will be deceived into thinking this is okay since it’s not hurting anyone. Advocates say why use sex slaves when you can have your own, permanent fix. Really? Who is going to pay nearly 10-grand for a plastic “thing” when male buyers simply close their eyes and shell out $50 or $100 for a few minutes of physical release while deepening the abuse of countless women and children?
Supporters then claim that this will reduce the chance of getting STDs. Oh, brother. This will not do that! After the initial excitement wears off, people will go back to doing what they’ve always done, and find “real” partners because we were not designed to be a companion with plastic; a thing with no soul. Just how much intimacy can be created between a human and a piece of erratically moving machinery? We were designed by God to feel, to love, to be in relationship with a bonafide human being.
The final argument says this isn’t “cheating” on your partner, since it’s a robot. I am sorry — this will do the same thing porn has done to relationships — it will kill true love. Besides that, what did Jesus say about this kind of thing? In Matthew 5:28, he says, “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” God’s standards are high because sin is like cancer; it only takes small amounts of it to grow, and can eventually destroy you.
Sex with robots is just another sick example of how far our culture has declined in its understanding of what it means to be human. I predict it will ultimately fail.
