Forum rules

Please don't post personal ads here. They will be removed. Offensive posts will also be removed at the discretion of the moderators, including lewdness, excessive profanity, pornographic pictures, nasty and mean-spirited comments

won't take this lying down

Unlike the robots.

in response to a pro-bestiality challenge

Can you imagine actually standing in front of a judge and arguing your case for that? Or convincing a lawyer to do it for you?

Anyway, I don't see how you could outlaw sex with robots. For one thing it isn't technically sex. For another you'd have to define what a sex robot is. At best you'd end up with an "I know it when I see it" law, like obscenity. And if you made it legal subject to certain conditions, it gets even worse; how would you decide if the robot is over 18?

Sex with aliens, now. That's a whole different ball game.

Probably some countries might require introduction of goat robots.

The sex cartel is like the anti-Uber guild but instead of protecting the market for transportation it protects the market for sex by attempting to discourage or outlaw activities which lower the market value of sex.

There would seem to be, indeed, but small respect among women for virginity per se. They are against the woman who has got rid of hers outside marriage, not because they think she has lost anything intrinsically valuable, but because she has made a bad bargain… and hence one against the general advantage and well-being of the sex. In other words, it is a guild resentment that they feel, not a moral resentment.

not exactly related, but here's two robots chatting... they could be dating, but instead they each decided to be an ass. I wonder if Cornell researchers used internet forums as training data...

Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.

Look at the bright side. If your human mate is an ass he/she will never change but if your robomate is an ass all you have to do is download a new personality. On the other hand, we'll know the end of humanity is near when even jobs in the oldest profession are being lost to automation.

I think it's great- if these robots can satisfy a lot of lonely people, wonderful. Especially wonderful in cases where the sex robots satisfy the kind of people who see lovers as objects and don't have any concern for their well-being. I think a lot of people won't be fully satisfied by the sex robots, so there'll still be a "market" for sex between humans. It also might solve some problems for partnerships with a disparity in sex drive. And it would likely reduce human trafficking and rape.

Win win win, I say.

Hope they bring the costs down though, because a lot of those benefits will be lost if the price is prohibitive.
