I don't think they're robots, they're silicone dolls, basically like a a full blown fleshlight.

I don't see what the problem is here.

- Increased tax revenue for municipalities who legalize such businesses
- Fewer law enforcement resources needed to deal with prostitution
- Decreased demand for sex trafficking
- Sexually deprived / suppressed men get their natural release, leading to fewer rapes and less violence.

Sounds like an all-around win to me.

Is the movement against this really about protecting women or controlling men? I usually side with feminists on many issues but this is starting to make me wonder if right wingers are on to something about what the real motivation is..to actually protect women, or force someone else to behave like you want them to even when it doesn't affect you?
Then why not allow child ones for those who prefer it, after all it's just latex no one gets hurt.

If this is what right wingers are about now, say goodnight.

Good question. If you rent one, report back, please.

I never could understand why prostitution is illegal but pornography is legal. Now lawmakers will attempt to legislate the look of these dolls to make them appear only like an adult. I wonder how that will work. At what point does a doll begin to look like a kid? And I'm not talking about the obvious; I'm speaking of the point when people/dolls just look childlike, have baby faces, etc. . .

They give them childlike faces but big breasts. I suppose the owner could do some breast reduction surgery. lol. Some of the Japanese ones look like young girls but then so do a lot of Japanese human women.

They certainly could not get away with making one that looked like a five year old, although some think that would help pedophiles not abuse real kids. OR it could make them want a real one even more. Like porn has gotten worse because of desensitization, they may become desensitized to the dolls but after having experienced sex with the doll, become even more dangerous to kids than if they never had it.

““It’s dehumanising,” said licensed sex worker Allissa.

“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.”

Nope. The acting these sex workers do to make their customer happy can actually enable the violent culture of sexual assault.

If these Kavenaugh and Trump types can get their pleasure from attempting to cause pain and suffering to just dolls, maybe it will extinguish that pleasure feedback loop that occurs when the women they are assaulting react and cry, or scream, or struggle, or just plain say NO.

Like aversion therapy or something.

There are sex doll brothels, but I think the link in the OP is referring to robots. The article is not clear, but based on other articles I've seen, I think the robots in this brothel have only very minimal capabilities for movement - probably just gyrating hips and talking dirty. I doubt that they could walk or dance or anything like that. On the other hand, the technology for walking and dancing realistically like a human already exists, so if customers were willing to pay for it, companies could be building them today.
