You know, I've always wondered about that. Why don't they make those silicon dummies to look more like, let's say, an Avatar alien. I would think that the buyers could fetishize robots or aliens just as easily, and you don't run into the problem of making perfectly re-created humans.

In the final analysis, I have a funny feeling that any news release like this is still just talking about a mannequin with a cassette deck in it saying things like 'OH BABY, I JUST LOVE MEN WITH A LITTLE MEAT ON THEIR BONES'.

Make a tolerably accurate human with a brain and some agility, and you've got bigger social changes than just some guy who loves him some android booty, although I admit that the million year long seller's market that women live in might have a bit of an upheaval.

You can actually custom order pretty much whatever you want, for a price. You're not limited to 100% anthropomorphic forms, I'm sure if you wanted weird skin tones more breasts, penises (for male dolls) or fur it could be accommodated (hygiene permitting).

Half these things are stylized anyway, looking facially like Sailor moon, on the body of Jessica Rabbit.

What about intersex and the full spectrum of the LGBTQIA for robots?

Can you purchase a harem? Endless possibilities I suppose.

I'll have to look around for that, all the ones I see the breathless news articles on attempt to closely mimic humans.

It's an interesting design challenge, one of the largest really, but it's hard to be amazed by people-shaped dummies with a speaker...although there are some real people that are like that to be sure.

Sex robot thread again. I guess that's another job Americans don't want to do.

An AI that will actually listen and agree with everything you like, watch chick flicks with you and cuddle while you read your fav book.
Until Skynet becomes self aware.

I would never ever ever get a sex robot/doll.

It's beyond repugnant to me. If someone is into that, fine, I guess. I'll take a giant pass, thank you.

As flawed and dysfunctional the human species are/is. I'd still rather deal with a real person.

There are certainly men I hope go this route. Good riddance.
