What makes you think women would want the interest of men who would choose a robot sex partner over them?

And what makes you think women wouldn't be buying their own?

Female needs are more complicated and not as easily met by synthetic alternatives. Eventually, AI might be convincing enough to do the job, but at that point we're going to have artificial beings that are virtually indistinguishable from people themselves. Until then, they're going to see a reversal in the party they've been enjoying at others' expense for the past few generations.

So in your world the only thing every man wants in a relationship is a hole to stick his willy in? If that's the case, what's stopping them from using a Realdoll or Fleshlight now? Heck, if they want the real woman experience they can even go out and hire a prostitute. And yet men are still having real relationships with real women.

It seems these conversations about MRA sexbot projections always seem to go the same way:

MRA: "You women are gonna be sorry when we've got sexy robots."

Women: "Okay."

MRA: "You're not gonna be able to trap men like me a relationship anymore."

Women: "That's fine."

MRA: "Men like me aren't gonna be around anymore. We'll be enjoying our strings-free relationship with a robot because you women are manipulative, grasping *****es."

Women: "I'm sure that's going to be a real loss."

MRA: "Are you sorry yet?"

Women: "No."

MRA: "How about now?"

I can see how this is going to play out:

MRA: "You women are gonna be sorry when we've got sexy robots."

Women: "Okay."

MRA: "You're not gonna be able to trap men like me a relationship anymore."

Women: "That's fine."

MRA: "Men like me aren't gonna be around anymore. We'll be enjoying our strings-free relationship with a robot because you women are manipulative, grasping *****es."

Women: "I'm sure that's going to be a real loss."

MRA: "Are you sorry yet?"

Women: "No."

MRA: "How about now?"

It doesn't actually work that way, though. It's a matter of supply and demand. Even the unwanted masses have uses to women. They exist for ego gratification, financial extraction and favors. Their solicitations themselves drive up the price, so to speak. And many not truly desirable but barely tolerable men act as an important backup plan for women when their big plans to rope the 6'4" muscular psychopath investment banker into marriage fail.

Just look at anecdotes from Western expats in Asia. Western women complain bitterly that the cerebral, non-jock types they love to turn their noses up at in disgust are pulling better than they themselves. Look at the screeching and derision delivered towards "MGTOW" and men who don't elect to marry after a certain point in life. And of course, wait until this technology actually becomes extant. There will be all matter of histrionics, that won't actually make sense until you understand this reality.

Oh boy! Women are going to miss out on the attention of a bunch of men who think they're all shallow, gold-digging, manipulative *****es who settle for men like them as a financial backup plan.

Men who opt not to marry and just mind their own business don't get derision except maybe from their own mothers. There's no feminist cabal out there keeping tabs on male age and demanding every man get hitched. "MGTOWs" get treated with derision not because they've decided not to have relationships with women, but because they act like they have a chip on their shoulder and justify their decision to everyone who will listen with a bunch of sexist, misogynist non-arguments like you have done here.

If developing sexbots keeps "MGTOW" away from real women, IMHO they can't come soon enough.

oh sure it will be common!!!!

Ever see the predictions made 20-50 years ago in older films/science articles on what would be around in 1980?......2000? It's laughable.

Me? I'd be happy with a few hours of extra battery life from my smartphone. Keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed.

There is constant wailing in the MSM about the "shortage" of (eligible) men and, implicitly, the need for men to 'man up' and marry these aging well worn harridans. I am happy for you that you don't read enough of said drivel to be aware of it.

I'm sure the world's women are all poorer for men like you leaving the relationship market. Just don't be surprised when/if at some point sexbots are available the reaction of women in general is one of celebration instead of wailing and gnashing of teeth.

BTW, people of both sexes have been complaining about the shortage of eligible members of the opposite sex since forever.

It's happening now, I betcha.
It's called ''internet porn''. I'd bet money that more men have the majority of their sexual release with this than with a human partner.
''Human-on-computer'', i.e. ''robot''.
Me? I'll take a good book and a dog cuddled up with me in the recliner ANYDAY over ANY of this crap! LOL
