Scientists around the world are warning that the attributes of
machines could lead to addiction because people may become obsessed by
their ever-faithful, ever-pleasing sex robot lovers, they have said.
Scientists also think that robotic sex might become better than human
But not everyone agrees that sexbots are a positive development.
Speaking at the Human Choice and Computers Conference which started
on September 7 in Britain, Kathleen Richardson of De Montfort University
said the biggest problem was the idea that complex human needs could be
met by inanimate objects.
Sex therapist Gurpreet Singh said it was not for people to judge
others who want to have sex with robots – and it could even be healthy
for people’s sex lives.
“Let people enjoy sex robots – they will work in the same way couples
introduce a toy into a sexual relationship. And if both parties agree, I
see nothing wrong,” said Singh.
But Singh warned against entirely replacing or cutting out human
relationships for sex cyborgs out of fear of intimacy or desire for
isolation. Addiction should then be addressed.
