Poll: Would you have sex with a robot?

 Pages 1 2 3 4 5 6 NEXT
 

It's the distant future, and we've finally completed the ability to create human-looking robots, commonly known as androids. These androids are not sentient, so don't worry about them killing you or enslaving humanity. However, several companies have drawn this technology to the hedonists in us, and created androids built specifically for sexual intercourse. They have realistic flesh, realistic breasts/abs/etc. and realistic genitals (and other orifices including anuses and mouths). To the naked eye, they look like a real human being, and likewise the sex feels like that of another human being. Also, for the sake of the argument, they are very affordable.

Also, if you have a significant other at the moment, in this scenario your S.O. has left you; either for another individual, you two fought too much, they died, or something that draws them away from this scenario. In this case, you're single and you haven't had sex in a long time (or for some of you out there, ever).

My question to the guys (and gals) of the Escapist, in this scenario, would you partake in purchasing or at the very least utilizing these robots, or would you always just stick to sexual intercourse with a real human being?

I see no reason why not. I'd probably just consider it another type of masturbating to be honest- only a rather more realistic one. Although if it became taboo to use sex androids I'd probably either stop or be very secretive about it.

Right... well, I'm not into sex dolls, that's strike one. I'm not into prostitutes, that's strike two. And I'm not into using technology to make up for my short-comings in the whole getting a girlfriend thing, that's strike three.

Yeah, I'd stick to good ol' Jill instead of robot ladies, thankyou.

Fractral:

I would assume (realistically speaking) these androids would be considered very taboo, as not only do they appear like real human beings, but we do have something similar in the market already (sex dolls, as Odgical stated. Although they're extremely expensive, and honestly downright creepy as hell O_O)

LMFAO. XD Great reply; yeah, I myself would probably be turned off by it as well, knowing it's not a real individual. Just the fact that I know it's not a real person would creep me out a bit with putting my junk into the android's junk.

However I wanted to see how far people's sexual deviancy would stretch. =P

Frankly, my dear, if buying a robot just for sex after getting dumped was my course of action I'd start questioning my own rationality. And buying one just for sex while being single, assuming they're cheap, would be, I don't know a bit uncreative. Bland, if you wish. Then again, not like real women aren't capable of being a complete bore in bed either.

I'm one of those weirdos who consider no sex a better option that boring, bad sex.

Sure, sounds like fun.

That's really fucking creepy no

Reminds me of that bit in Fallout NV

AnarchistFish:

I'm aware it's creepy. XD It's just to see how far people would take their sexual deviancy.

Also, may I ask, what part of New Vegas you're talking about? I don't remember a part with having sex with an android--Oh God, you meant Fisto...-shudders-

It's completely indistinguishable, so assuming it was affordable and I was single, I don't see why not. I'd still look for a human partner, as you get an emotional bond there too, rather than just the physical...

Depends, will it have a screen on its stomach for me to watch porn on? Because that would be kinda cool.

Spambot 3000:
Sure, sounds like fun.

A spambot would be for it...

As for myself? I have no idea. If they looked like this:

Maybe. But I like having an emotional bond with someone that I'd take to bed. If that could be achieved with a robot, like with the Replicants in Blade Runner, then sure. But if they're just emotionless sexbots, then I think I'll pass.

The Night Angel:

Would you keep the android (and stuff it in the closet or something) for possible later use, or would you get rid of it once you find a companion?

Whitbane:

Oh god, now I'm thinking of people ordering Teletubbies...

I'd keep it more being close to as realistic as possible, but sure if that's what you'd like, then sure, it could have a TV on it's stomach. xD

Thanks for, ah, that. I didn't need those images in my head. I'll hold off on the androids bit for now... while I clean out my brain.

Yes. It's only one step up from masturbation. I'd keep it secret, though.

AnarchistFish:

OT: I'd like to think not. Especially if its something like Fisto.

Only if automatically correct and fully functional

Well, as long as either no one know about it, or no one judges you about it, then sure!
But i can only imagine the legal problems etc about cheating and stuff that could arise once such technology is available. LOL

I'd say no, and I'd develop a terrible fear of doing something totally different that got mistaken for it by passers by.

According to the Ghost in the Shell series, many rich bureaucrats will purchase robot 'escorts' for their dinner parties come 2030.

For me it would be hard to say. If she was a cyborg, all robot body and a human brain like Motoko Kusanagi I would probably say yes, as a human mind would imply free will and one's own personality (though this is clearly debatable). Appearance wise the cyborg/robot would have to be almost indistinguishable from a real person, otherwise I think it would disturb me too much.

Do I get to talk to them?

Sex isn't something I'd probably do without getting to know the person first

Artificial memories would be a big help

best thing about sex for me is pleasuring the women (kinda like a cool real life bunch of mini games) so unless the bot has all the right buttons and gives off some flashing lights and sirens at the right time i'm not sure if i could get into it

Of course I would.

This sounds like a prelude to Cherry 2000.

I would use one even if it was beautiful though. There's no need really (at least I don't think there is).

As long as she didn't blather on like SHODAN, calling me a pathetic insect and stuff, then I'm all for android sex.

Why not? I've had sex with both of my hands and a guy-brator, might as well xD

I've already got a magic wand. Not seeing much of a jump from one to the other. So sure, why not?

Really? Over 2/3 of you guys would be okay with that?
I don't know, to each his own, but to me at least, sex with a robot just seems downright creepy, and arguably making them almost indistinguishable from humans would just increase the "uncanny valley" factor.
Yuck.

Only if it bought me a drink first
I'm more okay with fucking a robot than a transexual. I guess because I know it's artificial.

I don't care how realistic it looks or feels, a robot won't ever be a human and sex with one just comes off as extremely creepy.

Also, http://youtu.be/3SgND89KUWE?t=45s

It would have to look like Jennifer Lawrence, but yeah, I can dig it.

Also, are these essentially Persocoms (like in Chobits?)

This reminds me of that John Shirley short story....can't remember the name but it's in here:http://www.amazon.com/In-Extremis-Extreme-Stories-Shirley/dp/0982663943/ref=pd_sim_b_1

So no, I would not, simply because that story has scarred me.

DVS BSTrD:

thanks for bringing that up. It says a lot about how transsexuals are treated, in this case as less than a mindless hightech-sextoy. That just makes me sad.

OT:
so to the question 'but can it maw the lawn?' I could say yes?
but does it talk back to me? can I have new insights on topics from it? does it love me? can it love at all? do we laugh together?
For me, sex is way more than just the physical act, otherwise I could just stick to masturbation.
So no, I would not have sex with a non-sentient android.
(but I certainly had something ging on for Data at that time...)

The only reason I wouldn't would be if it was difficult to conceal and there was shame associated with owning one: the same reason I wouldn't buy a fleshlight even though, realistically, I don't see any reason why not.

I mean, girls get vibrators, what do we get? *Grumble grumble*

Sure... why not. Most likely cheaper, easier maintenance and whole lot less aggravating with the whole "Off" switch. Viva Le Futurea

Seriously... it sounds too much like people are over complicating sex here and trying to pretend as if you cant have sex without emotion, almost in a "doth protest too much" vibe.

Ummm . Hell yes . As long as it look and feels real . Sex without all the bullshit around it ? Sign me up . I'll take a robot over a real woman anyday ! So much simpler to deal with .

Although with my luck , i'd probably still get friendzoned .
