The hypothesis? Sex robots would become the leading ladies of sex-for-profit in the seemingly distant year of 2050.
The paper was called “Robots, Men and Sex Tourism,” a work that made its way into a journal called Futures, according to a report in The Dominion Post.
Part of their research involved the hypothetical creation of an Amsterdam sex club called “Yub-Yum,” where robot women create a land rife with “sexual gods and goddesses of different ethnicities, body shapes, ages, languages and sexual features.”
Far fetched? I doubt it. Remember Jude Law's character in A.I.? And in Isaac Asimov's classic The Robots of Dawn the author featured a "humaniform" named Jander who had a clandestine sexual relationship with one of the main characters, Lady Gladia Delmarre.
If Asimov, the master of robotics, hypothesizes that, you can bet it will probably happen.Posted by Hube at April 19, 2012 09:00 PM | TrackBack
