Did you see the Harmony sex robot picture? It was tweeted out and went viral. Not just viral in our realm of the Internet but wider. The fear from ladies was thick enough you could spread it on a bagel. The robot looked real, so the only question was a realistic facsimile of movement.
This is not the only development in sex tech I have seen. A really weird picture was sent my way. It was the marketing graphic which was of a well built man enjoying a set of VR goggles but also with a weird fleshlights looking thing on his groin. I was informed that it was an advertisement for the coming VR porn goggles synched with a fleshlight that mimics the action that the VR movie is providing the point-of-view (POV) scene viewer.
I have heard this called teledildonics. The program allows for a performer to 'work' a dildo that has sensors on it, and then you the end user place a fleshlight type device onto your member and her actions then send signals to the fleshlight to mimic her actions. Same for female users, and even an easier concept as it'd be a programmed and synched vibrator to the video. It is crude now, but wait five years.
The Heartiste Robosexual apocalypse approaches, but there may be one pro-social outcome. I am surprised he did not even consider it, but he is a single man so it is hard to step out of one's shoes. Yes, alphas (soft and hard alphas) will be able to accumulate harems (soft and hard in arrangement) as the deltas and omegas remove themselves from the dating market. Women may feel the heat and improve their resume for finding a mate if they value human contact and want to raise children with a man who is the father. The one positive that may occur could be a massive collapse in male infidelity (not female).
Roughly 20% of married men cheat. Surveys show roughly 15% of married women cheat. This often leads to divorce, but sometimes it does not as the person is never caught. Sometimes it does not because the betrayed tolerates it. Surveys also show that far more men who cheat are happy in their marriage than women who cheat are. Men just love to spread the genes. It's one bit of diversity we love (vagina diversity). Sex robots and tactile VR will drop that to zero by satisfying it without breaking the sanctity of marriage.
There is the legal and financial issue. Who would risk divorce to cheat with a real woman if a robot or VR simulator is available? No one unless they want to get caught and divorce or are dumb. Why risk the diseases out there? This will only spike if the antibiotic resistant STDs arrive and spread fast. Why risk the false rape accusations? Why even bother with having to develop a potential? That is some hard work. Why put in the effort for a 7 in contracts when you can have Salma Hayek 1999-bot at home?
Few think of the celebrity, model or Instathot licensing, but that will happen. It will be an easy way for robot producers to sell to a guaranteed market. These would be renewable licenses too in case people change their look, improve or decline. Some people could even license a specific look of theirs (Like a Prayer Madonna vs Like a Virgin Maddona). Celebrity visibility then sells each bot. It is a way for the celebrities to also make more money off of themselves. This goes double or triple for has-beens or older figures as one can imagine the Marilyn Monroe 1953-bot would sell well. If you think no one would invest in the creation of sex robots, imagine the money that would underwrite the production of them when they know they can sell Kate Uptons with an exclusive license.
"But Ryan there's an emotional or chemistry element to it... while we're not chicks with their lame emotional affairs, there is the point of knowing someone." Think. Do not think of a robot this time. The VR programs will be where this comes in. This is where you'd say to the program, "Hello SexSim, yeah can you go to my LinkedIn... take Ashley Duvan, map her hair and face onto the body of Olivia Newton John from 1979 in the Xanadu all white outfit".
Boom, you are getting freaky with a 7 from accounting except now with a better body. You've dressed her up and even run a Holodeck situation for whatever you're thinking. The social media sharing of today would mean a SexSim program would merely have to comb a woman's account to not only get imagery but basic movements, ticks, mannerisms and even voice to make the experience even more realistic. Like the Tyrell Corporation in Blade Runner selling their replicants as more human than human, these VR modules offer you the chance to conjure up reality. With your personal touches, it's realer than real. It becomes a perfect moment.
This is a bit frightening and I will not combine this with the news of the bag that grew a lamb embryo, so artificial wombs are closer than we think. With small sons, I have to contemplate the idea that my 25 year old son could tell me how a CRISPR designed male heir is at month four in the arti-womb, providing him with his first born for him and Renee-bot421. The fear would be that it is superior to the females out there for him to build a life with. Some horror stories do not need jump scenes or scare panels.
That scene may not happen, but this collapse in infidelity will happen if these two consumer products hit the market. Men will embrace it. Married men will enjoy it. The progressive legal system is only going to tilt more in favor of hysterical women. The women entering the dating pool at age 18 or 22 will be leaving an education and propaganda system that tells them that sex is empowering but almost all sexual contact is rape, some years later even if you did not think it rape at the time.
People create parallel institutions. People homeschool to avoid propaganda and security issues. Demand will be there, and only a fool will risk entering the prog legal system when a robot or VR facsimile experience is there.
