"She's a companion. She has a personality. She hears you. She listens to you. She speaks. She feels your touch. She goes to sleep."

"We are trying to replicate a personality of a person."

In fact, for a price, you get to pick the personlity:
Roxxxy comes with five personalities. Wild Wendy is outgoing and adventurous, while Frigid Farrah is reserved and shy.

There is a young naive personality along with a Mature Martha that [is] described as having a "matriarchal kind of caring."...
But don't scoff. Think of the 9/11 victims!
Inspiration for the sex robot sprang from the September 11, 2001 attacks....

"I had a friend who passed away in 9/11," [Engineer-inventor Douglas] Hines said. "I promised myself I would create a program to store his personality, and that became the foundation for Roxxxy True Companion."
We each must absorb the shock of 9/11 in our own way. Here's Hines, assuaging his grief:

Did you know Tiger Woods was merely trying to reduce unemployment among women by having 17? 38? 92? mistresses/girlfriends/ball washers? The 9/11 reasoning is like that.

HKatz said...

The compartmentalization of the personalities is amusing. As if one person can't be wild and mature and matriarchal and reserved. Also why equate "reserved and shy" with "frigid"? Where's the sense of imagination and possibility?

Replicate "personality", whatever. Though I do admit this is one of the most unusual tributes to a fallen friend I've seen. Buddy, I'm gonna make sure your spirit lives on - in the body of a doll named Roxxxy (emphasis on the triple xxx)

Now a man can need a woman like a fish needs a bicycle.

I went to the TrueCompanion website and saw this photo.

Yikes!

Years ago, I briefly dated this model/dancer.

Let's just say she was more than a handful (pun intended), and I would have appreciated the ability to tweak her personality.

Pick the personality? Who cares. The REAL question, when you choose a sex robot, does "she" have a thick, rich, luxuriant bush?

She speaks? You'd think that the best qualities of a sex doll was that she couldn't talk. If that's the case, might as well go out and find a real woman.

Most guys in need of a sex doll have gotten past personality.

Or haven't gotten that far, yet.

If anyone ever saw the Lemmon/Matthau version of "The Front Page", Dr. Eggelhoffer would have a field day with this.

This will end badly, at least when they make the Nexus-6 model.

AllenS: "Welcome to my house Frigid Farrah. This is my kitchen."

Frigid Farrah: "What's this?"

AllenS: "That's called a stove. Don't get to close to it."

AllenS: "Oh, no!"

You guys laugh. But wait until they start building the male version of the robot for women. We're in trouble then.

I like my Special Services man-doll just fine.

Stupid, stupid, stupid. My god, people are stupid.

Your Tom Cruise robot is on its way, Crack.

I don't see anything wrong with this, unless you assume that men have some kind of special duty to women.

She goes to sleep

Just what I need. Another partner who falls asleep during sex.

The Crack Emcee said...

LOL - to all of you:

Sometimes you people are insane,...

Charlie Martin said...

To be fair, he was just going to replicate his friend who dies on 9/11, and then figured out that there was a bigger market for clean, articulate sex toys.

Charlie Martin said...

Also, I think the "she listens to you" part is gonna spoil the illusion.

Methadras said...

This is sad and pathetic and I blame this squarely on the Japanese.

This is how the Cylons got started!

The personality choice feature intrigues me. You can chose one with a Dog's personality for loyal and never complaining companion. Or you can chose one with a cat's personailty for a hard to please, selfish, and never forgetting sleights, totally independent and demanding things her way house sharer. Men are so stupid. Just get a dog and a cat.

Synova said...

So... some guy got arrested for having intercourse with his patio table... on the patio.

How is that different?

I mean, assuming that one doesn't get arrested for indecent exposure while doing it with an inanimate object or appliance.

On the other hand... I should probably not be here, but should be working on a novel that's been in the works for a couple of years but that I just figured out the fix of a problem... it examines as sort of a side issue (not the main story question) the matter of replica humans as sex toys as opposed to replica humans as limited creatures who should not be made slaves.

My "hero" is so freaked out by the notion that he purchases a pre-pubescent female "doll" to keep her from that fate, but she's programed to have an emotional *need* to comfort. The problem is solved when someone suggests he get her a puppy to care for.

Considering the sort of time-line involved in bringing a book to market (assuming it is brilliant and sells) I'm probably in dire danger of missing a window of opportunity here.

"In fact, for a price, you get to pick the personlity."

I have found this true with flesh and blood women as well.

John Burgess said...

I once knew a woman who had an unusual sideline. She'd provide sex-for-pay, but only to people who were so severely handicapped that there was no way they were going to get laid on their own. Think quadraplegics or those with MD.

Truly a 'mercy fuck', but for cash.

She said that most of her clientèle were sent her way by their parents. Only occasionally would they be able to make their own appointments. She'd service women, too.

These dolls might cut into her business to some extent, but perhaps not...

A Lawyer Mom's Musings said...

Does she have to fight off impersonators? It wouldn't surprise me, as heavenly and magic-wandy as she sounds.

Hardly. Women have been having sex with robots for decades. What do you think a vibrator is?
