'It sounded like you said 'robot waffles.'"

Me, responding to Meade, who re-articulated: "'Robot brothels.' They're 'dehumanizing and dangerous.'"

Me, looking for the link to whatever he's reading: "Are you really reading 'dehumanizing and dangerous'?" Because I was Googling that phrase and not finding the article. Suddenly: "Oh! It's in a British paper!"

The headline in The Sun: "BAD BOTS Sex robots BACKLASH as brothel workers reveal fury over ‘dehumanising and dangerous’ droids."

Me, looking at the photograph and laughing: "It's funny how they look standing up because they're trying to make room between their legs."

But don't worry, guys, the robot woman won't laugh at you.

Another angle on The Era of That's Not Funny.

"Dehumanizing droids"? Are the droids you're looking for?

Harcourt Fenton Mudd, where have you been? What have you been up to? Have you been drinking again, you miserable sot!

Mind the gap...

Again, still, the conversation about women and their vibrators remains to materialize. For lots of women men are just dildos that make money, but the sex robot is dehumanizing. Thanks whores interviewed in The Sun. Got it.

Why can't I just eat my robot waffle?

Speaking of North by Northwest, this Vietnam railroad engineer video is good for a few minutes of sharing alleys with pedestrian traffic.

Laugh now, but these things are going to get better and better. If AI can beat a world chess champion, what makes you sure that it soon won’t out-fuck the average woman? Additional features include no bitching, no claims of harassment 40 years from now when you are trying to get through your Senate hearings, no divorce lawyers, and no chance of getting her pregnant. Of course, women, desperate to maintain a monopoly on pussy that they have enjoyed since, oh, forever, will be totally against it.

Angles? Reminded me of Donleavy's words in The Unexpurgated Code:A series of leverages as would astound master bridge building engineers.

One company is even developing a head that can speak...for its robot sex dolls.

Someone seriously missed the point.

Dehumanizing and dangerous? So, just like regular brothels.

Bay Area Guy said...

Why can't we have high quality whores and robot whores, too?

It'd be win-win.

rhhardin said...

There's some song about a woman who dresses like a whore "and not the expensive kind."

richlb said...

The sex dolls look like they are taking a dump.

And I agree with the professional prostitutes - robots are no substitute for the real thing.

Lucid-ides said...

Bay Area Guy said, "Why can't we have high quality whores and robot whores, too?"

The obvious answer is that the robot whores are higher quality than the regular real whores, which is very sad. I blame the whore schools and whore colleges mostly. They should focus less on the identity-intersectionality between whoring, misogyny and tele-dildonics and focus more on whoring quality. But the whoring market - like all markets - appears to be sorting itself out.

Ambrose said...

They are not dehumanizing - they are all the way to dehumanized.

jwl said...

I think men who prefer to have sex with robot are already psychologically damaged and that why they want companionship with inanimate object.

Neither are prostitutes.

Well it would, if the government would leave it alone. Which it won't.

And you know the politicians will side with the human whores. Professional courtesy, and all that...

PM said...

Robot whores encompass every possible meaning of 'safe sex'. #metoounpredictable

Vance said...

There's something to be said about Bob... many, many women's boyfriend. He's battery operated, see.

Not sure how any woman who loves Bob can complain about the men seeking a companion that won't sue them in the morning.

D 2 said...

Just wait until the robots have internal software to scold/debate their meatworld partners!

"It's ok. I suppose a walk in the park would be nice. If it doesn't rain. I was hoping we'd go over to the Johnsons. Mark & Th-104R have just put in their new electronic Simu-pool"

"I saw you looking at her. Grow up, Hank. She's two models younger than me! You think she is interested in anything but your high speed internet connection?!"

"I know it was a long week at work, but do you think you can swing by on your way home and get some bread and a gallon of polyether? I had a backup malfunction this morning, and I couldn't get to it"

FIDO said...

I had a friend who visited Thailand. When there, he met a VERY cute professional.


He...was older. Rich and rich in years. So he asked a price. The average was about $100.

She demanded $500...cause he 'had a good personality and was an amazing person'.

So are the robots more dehumanizing than that?

Some men are just unacceptable, even to ugly women. So until women start offering sex workers for the destitute, it seems there is a market for this.

I respond:

According to standard Keynesian economics, the intersection between the supply curve of whores and the demand curve for whoring, will be the current price for a good whore. More so, the marginal propensity of the next whore beyond the price point -- be it a robot whore or traditional whore -- will decrease the cost of whoring. Yes, obsolescence and technical innovation do impact the market for whoring. But if the marginal cost of producing 1 robot whore slowly reaches the point at which the cost of providing for one live whore reaches equilibrium, well, then, both the supply distribution chain and excess demand will be satisfied.

You think Brett Kavanaugh lacks compassion? Try imagining a Brett Kavanaugh whose only sexual connections have been with droids. Because that's the only safe way to go if your ambition is to be a success in any media/academic/legal/political/medical career.

rhhardin said...

It's about jerking off, not companionship. Any vagina will do. If you don't love the lady, companionship is a drawback afterwards.

I'd think it would limit the pleasure of foreplay a lot however, which if pleasure is the object would be a problem. If ejaculation if the goal, it works fine. For a while the sex-obsessed young man is not obsessed with sex.

walter said...

"Men should not be using sex dolls as training wheels for seeing a human sex worker."

rhhardin said...

"I have a girlfriend your age."

"You must be very rich."

rhhardin said...

If you want companionship, get a dog.

Note to "Red": Look at the bots. Do they have shitty looking tattoos on their tits?

You mean the “Robot Waffle” is NOT a dance?

Sigh, I clicked the clickbait - the "robots" can't even stand up under their own power.

"'Robot brothels.' They're 'dehumanizing and dangerous.'"

Not when the women's version comes out. Then they'll be empowering and affirming.

Ewwwww!

We're years away from a good sexbot--25 or more.

Big Mike said...

Not hardly! They be programmed to say things like “Oh! You’re too big! You’re splitting me in two!”

Big Mike said...

As opposed to asking whether it’s in yet.

walter said...

Once they can make waffles afterwards, it will give rise to the Bot and Breakfast.

Big Mike said...

Plus the robot sex partners won’t look at their wrist watch while faking an orgasm, the way Jane Fonda did in “Klute.”

traditionalguy said...

But remember you pay a whore to leave. The sex robot industry will need a drone service to deliver the “perfect Woman”and pick her up when it's all finished, for maintenance and storage...like Hertz Rent a Cunt.

Lucid-ides said...

Bay Area Guy, very thoughtful analysis! This is what those girls are missing and what they need to hear. Do you mind if I send that there way? It's so concise and on point that I might even be able to score a free one. We all know how much girls love smarties...

Big Mike said...

The real trick got the robot designers was getting them to duplicate Meg Ryan’s performance in “When Harry Met Sally.” Once they figured that out, the rest was easy.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

At least Robot Whores can't make up 36 year old allegations and have them pushed by corrupt Democrats and disgusting feminist academics to rape your judicial nomination.

rhhardin said...

If there'd been robo-whores, there would have been no fall of Troy.

That would get the neighbors talkin'

Sigivald said...

Robots aren't human.

Who's being "dehumanized", ladies?

More like "made redundant".

If you can't compete with a robot for provision of sex, maybe you should up your game, or leave the market.

Meade said...

"If there'd been robo-whores, there would have been no fall of Troy."

Plus no need for Trojans!

They should be called Helens.

Rick said...

Sex workers offer more than just a simulation of a woman, we offer authentic intimacy and two-way affection that our clients deeply crave and sincerely benefit from.

How stupid do you think we are? When your argument needs this as a foundational tenet it's time to move on.

rhhardin said...

A side-effect of any-vagina-will-do is that the robo-whore doesn't compete with the wife. It's a labor saving device for her. No need to feign headaches. Sex only when she wants it without the hassle.

rhhardin said...

A whore wants repeat busines so tends to be nice to the guy, which never hurts if he's got a nagging wife. But the whore is competing with other whores for his business.

I suppose Nately's whore in Catch-22 was an exception. She didn't give a shit about him and he loved her.

rhhardin said...

The disappointment with robo-whores has to be the failure of foreplay. There aren't any bases.

Rick said...

Keep your laws off our bodies.

FWIW; I saw the photo of the factory and thought "mmm- glazed!"

NyPo: Investors consider sequestering Planned Parenthood after progressive trimester losess.

Robots with sanitized black holes... whores (hat tip NAACP), front, back, top, etc. are the future of affordable healthcare reform, will help mitigate the risk of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming, grow the GDP, increase diversity, promote cosmopolitan chic, reduce inconvenient after birth burdens, and ensure greener lawns on both sides of the fence.

Breaking, NOW: Robots with sanitized black holes serve on the front lines of social progress.

There are, but all their bases are belong to us. That's what happens when you buy the Japanese model.

Robo holes... whores, are looking for ResPIC (PIC Microcontroller Communication with RS232 Serial Bus), or a reliable external interface with a phallic probe.

McCackie said...

Be increasingly shrill, hateful and crazy and then wonder why competition is filling the gap"?

The way you deal with competition is be value for money, and large front holes ain't.

mockturtle said...

I'd never seen one before BUT as I drove through Lincoln City, on the Oregon coast, today, there was an 'adult' store with about eight of them, scantily clad, right out in their display window facing 101. All 'female', of course. :-(
