We have seen some amazing technological changes in this century, even an unexpected development in the sex industry with these creepy sex robots that could catch on and decrease human prostitution and sex trafficking.
Internet porn started massive changes in the industry. Before the internet, porn stars shot straight-to-video films that were sold. Now, anyone with a camera and computer can become a porn-star.
Still, selling yourself for sex is not normally an ideal way to live. Often, it falls on struggling women with few options. Pimps prey on the weak and take advantage of vulnerable women with few options to bring them into the filthy world of prostitution.
According to Minds, the sex robot industry could totally change the prostitution world. “Robots are being constructed to take the place of the human prostitutes and it may actually legitimize the industry.”
“The theory sex robots are good substitutes for human prostitutes has a degree of credibility,” NUI Galway Law professor John Danaher said in his report “Sex Work, Technological Unemployment and the Basic Income Guarantee”.
“The cyborgs can cater for desire for sexual variety, freedom from constraint and complication and fear of lack of sexual success. Technology may become better at developing emotional bonds with their clients. They won’t need to ‘fake it’ the same way as human prostitutes.”
While it seems crazy at first, he does make a good point. It is disgusting, but these robots could help to decrease sex trafficking and prostitution, which are arguably far more repulsive, especially when the females are kidnapped and do not give consent.
“Automating jobs that people don’t want has been a historical necessity, from farming and hauling, to machining and all sorts of white collar jobs, we excel at making robots do the jobs we don’t want to do.”
What do you think? Is this just a disgusting, perverted idea, or is there potential to use these robots to save victims of the sex industry?
