Let’s talk about robot sex, shall we?
For years, people have speculated what the future may look like. Will we be sleeping in pods filled with goo? Will everything hover? Will we have finally mastered teleportation? Or will our world simply look like a dystopian civilization, where adult women are handmaids who bear children, children run through death mazes and teens fight each other to the death?
Well, today we can report that the future will still have sex. And that some people will be having intercourse with robots. As for whether those people will be fighting in some melee tournament on a computer-controlled island for freedom 100 years from now, we’re not sure. But today, a sexually submissive (and responsive) robot requires no hardship, nor blood. It just costs $9,230. And apparently there are already thousands of pre-orders.
Her name is Roxxxy, and the company that makes her, True Companion (warning: NSFW-ish), claims she is the world’s first sex robot. Currently, it’s just a woman, but there are male sex robots on the way. If you aren’t down with having the same factory standard design as every other sex-bot enthusiast, you can customize your hot babe of a home decor item for upwards of $99,900. Some customization options, if you’re curious, include “Beyonce” or “Martha” hair.
True Companion says on its website: “She knows your likes and dislikes, carries on a discussion and expresses her love to you and (can) be your loving friend. She can talk to you, listen to you and feel your touch. She can even have an orgasm.”
Wall-E, this is not.
