A recent peek led me to believe that the site is no longer G or even PG-rated, if you get my drift. All of this evidence leads to an obvious question: is it a wide-spread “nerdy guy” fantasy to engage in explicitly adult conversation with a computer software program masquerading as Venus?
What, I wonder, is the deal with all these girl bots and the penchant of young male botmasters for lewd conversation? If we assume that the answer is yes, the next question would be: why?
A pair of New Zealand researchers say sex robots will revolutionize the sex tourism business by 2050.
Robot sex is safer sex, free from the constraints, precautions and uncertainties of the real deal, wrote Victoria University management professor Ian Yeoman and sexologist Michelle Mars in their paper, titled Robots, Men And Sex Tourism.
As I noted last year, the Chatbots4u platform seems to be aimed at a younger, international crowd.
The club would resemble others in Amsterdam's Red Light District, the researchers wrote, saying Yub-Yum would contain sexual gods and goddesses of different ethnicities, body shapes, ages, languages and sexual features.
Sexually transmitted diseases and infections would be non-existent, Yeoman and Mars said, because the sex robots would be made of bacteria-resistant fiber that would be flushed of human fluids after the sex acts.
The most well known chatbots have generally been given a female persona. Do nerdy guys lack the gumption to engage a real flesh and blood young woman in conversation? Is it really more satisfying to talk to a chatbot that’s restricted to a handful of vapid phrases than to interact with another human being?
The popularity of opposite-sex chatbots probably says something about contemporary society. Are nerdy guys less lucky with the ladies than their less-nerdy counterparts? How many teenage boys don’t spend most of their time with their face in some gadget or other?
