Didn't listen, but from the headline it sounds like something you'd market to women who can't handle aging and losing their looks, when plastic surgery just ain't doing the job anymore. ("I've still got it! Or, at least, my sexbot 'portrait' does!")

Pediophobia = Irrational fear of dolls.

Maybe not so 'irrational' anymore. If that thing got within 10 feet of me I'd shoot it, knife it, douse it in gasoline, then stick it in a Faraday cage and bury it 6 feet deep in soft Scottish peat and think no more on it.

I'm not a pediophobe...yet.

The ultimate expression of homosexuality

Seems like this thing built a house right at the base of Valley, Uncanny in Creepyville.

"Didn't listen, but from the headline it sounds like something you'd market to women who can't handle aging and losing their looks, when plastic surgery just ain't doing the job anymore."

She was doing research into the robot-making industry and using it in her comedy show.

She has a lot to say about the real customers for this product (which costs about $5,000). These are men who don't have real women to have sex with (and to relate to and love). Many are disabled men or old men. You could get the likeness of you dead wife, for example.

Give me a hologram sweety like in the sequel of Blade Runner and I am good.

A sex doll of a woman named Cummings.

It seems kinda obvious in retrospect.

I am Laslo.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

Were I Laslo, I'd have something clever to say about her last name.
Alas, I'm not, and I don't.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

Crap, he beat me to it!

tcrosse said...

Imagine the sex doll of Dorian Gray doing your aging for you.

Laslo Spatula said...

Maybe the sex dolls can be accessorized like Mr. Potato Head: snap on Angelina Jolie's lips for a night, switch out Jennifer Aniston's breasts for a younger set from some upcoming starlet.

Or snap off Bruce Jenner's cock for a night with Caitlyn Jenner.

I am Laslo.

Thought provoking / unsettling the idea of having a dead wife as a model for a sex doll, for an old widower.

Fernandistein said...

Heh. A Chatty Cathy doll has almost the same level of robotity.

Laslo Spatula said...

I can see where it would be easy-ish to match the look of a celebrity's face -- there are plenty of photos available.

But just how accurate are the vagina and asshole?

At the factory in the parts bins are there, like, thirty sex doll faces, but only three vaginas and maybe two assholes?

And why limit ourselves to simple duplication? Can we not have a Scarlett Johannson with a face vagina instead of a mouth?

Can we not have a Jessica Alba with easily fuckable ear-holes?

Because I don't want to have to be cutting into the head of my Jessica Alba doll just to get an ear-hole that's fuckable.

And it probably voids the warranty.

I am Laslo.

AA: She was doing research into the robot-making industry and using it in her comedy show.[...]

Appreciate the summary. Wasn't going to spend 11+ minutes listening.

Laslo Spatula said...

"Thought provoking / unsettling the idea of having a dead wife as a model for a sex doll, for an old widower."

Even more-so when the widower's deceased wife is the model for his best friend's sex doll.

I am Laslo.

Ever have one of those episodes where something/someone you never heard of before comes to your attention, and then you see it everywhere you look? Today it's Joe Rogan.

DrSquid said...

Come to think of it, yesterday it was Whitney Cummings.

Laslo Spatula said...

We are ten years in the future: you come home at the end of the day to Whitney Cummings, who is in a bad mood and, well, ten years older.

Next to her is the sex doll of her, modeled from the past, closer to her prime. And silent.

I guess my question is: do you let Whitney watch?

I am Laslo.

Ray - SoCal said...

I listened to 7 minutes till the conversation drifted from the robot.

This Robot cost $100,000 due to the customization required to make it more like Whitney Cummings.

She also mentioned people don’t like robots that are kinda human, but not due to a pathogen avoidance. Basically people don’t like being around sickly, and the robots trigger that response.

I view this robot more as a Model T version. Cost is too high, features are barely usable, etc.

My guess in 5 years you will have a version available for $20,000 that is 10x more lifelike. That will have a huge society impact.

Old people in a managed care facility needs social interaction, something like this could provide that. It’s a heart breaking issue.

And what happens when it becomes good enough to supply social interaction for younger people, without the negative of a relationship. No alimony, child support, etc.

tcrosse said...

Mix 'em, match 'em. Collect the whole set. Swap them with your friends1

traditionalguy said...

I would order a doll of Rosalind Russell that acted out her parts in Auntie Mame and Gypsy. Now that's entertainment. Physical Sex without an intimate lover is not all that entertaining.

John henry said...

She is not bad looking and seems smarter than Joe Biden. What's not to like?

Yancey Ward said...

"Crap, he beat me to it!"

Laslo is uncanny that way.

tcrosse said...

You'd have to make them self-cleaning.

Laslo Spatula said...

Of course, all sex doll 'input' will be uploaded to Google.

Which will provide some interesting targeted advertising for the 'end user'.

I am Laslo.

Laslo Spatula said...

How is the accuracy of the Whitney sex-doll's fish-tube?

I am Laslo.

GatorNavy said...

Who the hell is Whitney Cummings? e.e. cummings niece?

Scott Patton said...

Joe Rogan doesn't remember that a previous guest, Ben Goertzel is one of the the guys behind Sophia.

Sydney said...

There was a Black Mirror episode like this. The widow got a robot that looked like her dead husband. Great sex but his personality was off just enough that she came to despise him. They used social media posts to create his personality and it was too happy.

PM said...

It's the cure for toxic masculinity. Get on, get off, get back to Madden.

Laslo Spatula said...

A flesh-and-blood woman cannot be replaced by a mere sex doll.

For fulfillment, a man would require the sex doll, a maid, and a dog.

('A Man Needs a Maid' -- cross-reference to Neil Young from the earlier post).

I am Laslo.

Laslo Spatula said...

The Whitney doll's face looks like it would be easy to wipe off.

So there's that.

I am Laslo.

Beasts of England said...

’Can we not have a Jessica Alba with easily fuckable ear-holes?’

I freely admit to being one of the horniest guys on the planet and in possession of a seriously twisted mind (I’m a Scorpio male; I can’t help it) but I’ll never achieve the Laslo apex. And I mean that with all due respect...

ALP said...

But will it make a sammich?

ALP said...

"Can" it make a sammich is more correct.

Ray - SoCal said...

Supposedly porn site data is already being used for advertising targeting.

Stealth / private mode does not work well.

Left Bank of the Charles said...

What are we watching in the simulation today?

(1) A robot sex doll made to look like Whitney Cummings.

(2) Whitney Cummings made up to look like a robot sex doll, with a non-robotic sex doll used to help create the illusion of a robot.

Does her comedy include humor about how the doll is better looking?

I could really use a doll that looked like me. I'd sit him up in his own man cave, and then I could tell people to "talk to the doll", becuase people come in to my man cave and just gab gossip. It's a damned man cave - NO TALKING!

DeVere said...

Can I buy your friend a drink?

Unknown said...

Once again, Laslo takes me to some places I ain't never been.

Sebastian said...

Whitney 2 looks like a woman Jean Braudillard could love.

SDaly said...

Is the sex doll plant located in Stepford, Connecticut?

cf said...

"SO ADDICTED RIGHT NOW TO SELF-RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION"
TRUE.

William said...

If you had a sex doll that looked exactly like yourself, which would be the least narcisstic way to use it--as a top or as a bottom. Asking for a friend.

DavidD said...

“Harcourt! Harcourt Fenton Mudd, what have you been up to? Have you been drinking again? You answer me!”

Bay Area Guy said...

It brings new meaning to the phrase: "Go fuck yourself!"

Lewis Wetzel said...

If only there were some way to tell sex bots from real women!

J. Farmer said...

Bit late, but I couldn't recall the name until a friend reminded me. Love Me, Love My Doll

Largo said...

Laslo, perhaps they could commission Crumb to design some.
