VIDEO: Robot prostitutes will replace humans in 2050
Posted by temasektimes on April 28, 2012
The recent sex with underage prostitute scandal implicating some high-flying elites of society shocked many Singaporeans and exposed an innate weakness in men – regardless of age, education qualification or profession, they still tend to think with the ‘small’ head below rather than the ‘big head’.
Being the oldest profession in the world, prostitution is a thriving industry in many countries including Singapore where it is legalized, but that still does not stop horny men from lusting after the ‘forbidden fruits’ – namely young nubile teenagers who are regarded as more ‘pleasurable’ and ‘safe’ than the experienced whores.
The problem may well be solved not by legislation but by robots in 2050 when robot prostitutes, underage or not, may become a reality.
In the paper Robots, Men And Sex Tourism, Ian Yeoman and Michelle Mars of the Victoria Management School in Wellington imagine a world in which sex tourism has become respectable and human trafficking and the spread of STDs stemmed by replacing human prostitutes with lifelike sex robots.
Made with bacteria-resistant materials, these robots will ensure safe sex and may be seen as a more ethical way of hiring a prostitute. Although prostitutes themselves may not be keen on the developing technology, researchers believe robot sex workers can bring a level of respectability to the prostitution game.
The paper describes a fictitious brothel in Amsterdam called Yub-Yum where, for a little more than $8,000 (£6,200), visitors are “guaranteed a wonderful and thrilling experience as all the androids are programmed to perform every service and satisfy every desire.”
