Description

From stone statues to silicone works of art, we have long sought solace and sex from inanimate objects. Time and technology have perfected the artificial lover: today we have life-size silicone love dolls so finely crafted they feel like works of art. Now, with the help of robotics and artificial intelligence, these dolls are becoming even more like humans. This week we talk with researcher Kate Devlin about the history of the artificial lover, and consider what love and sex look like in the age of robots.

And just like that we are another step "removed" from real life. Fake conversations, fake friends, fake food, fake sex...

all this is doing is perpetuating rape culture and there "women" can't say NO. Men in this society need HELP. This is NOT normal.

This can be great for society as long as there are boundaries. child or animal sex dolls/robots should be a boundary.

This is a morally corrupt lifestyle that if normalized, has the potential to further devastate society in countless ways. Seeking a relationship with inanimate objects is sad and these people need help.

Bilal Johnson Oh I don't know Bilal, maybe something along the lines of therapy and counseling. At first I was going to suggest taking them out for some ice cream, but then I saw the absurdity in that.
