Is mechatronic sex the future of our sexlife?

I can’t imagine the scenario where a man hugging, kissing and making love to a machine. This is really pathetic. Sex is not just an orgasm. What about love, emotions, and raw excitement?

Curtsey: Factor-tech

I can’t imagine the scenario where a man hugging, kissing and making love to a machine. This is really pathetic.

Human interactions have been quite significantly reduced in the last couple of years. Amazon has started to use drone delivery, Uber has introduced driverless car and Google has even developed artificial intelligence. There has been a development of robot sex as well which is alarming.

Young people are already having less sex than the previous generation. I have no doubt that average sex life is tumbling, and this is a worrying sign for modern science. In Japan, a strange phenomenon called “ Soushuko-key” has started. This means herbivore type men who are not interested in sex.

According to Netflix documentary “Darknet”, 36% Japanese do not want a romantic partner. They would rather masturbate or use some other unnatural means for their sexual pleasures or they don’t want sex at all. Americans too are losing interest in organic sex in the early 2010s compared to the late 1990s — a 15% drop from 62 times a year to just 53. In number is definitely lower in 2017. Scientists are divided in their opinions- some blame porn, some blame social media for this phenomenon.

Experts say, in future, we will have even less sex with one another because of virtual realities, artificial intelligence, and robot technology. People will have sex alone using different technologies. I simply don’t understand why people even have to think to replace biological sex by mechatronic sex. Sex is the most intense and healthy pleasure that we humans have. It is an essential act to continue our human race. It is pity that instead of having more sex they are having less. Are these people in their mind who are considering an alternative to normal sex?

Sex technology is predicting that robots will provide better sex than human by 2040. They stress that artificial vagina is as good as organic. If artificial intelligence is integrated with sex robots, they can all details of sex pleasures-they think. This kind of thought is disturbing my mind. These can be alternative to masturbation or help to those who are unable to get the rigid erection. It can be very good assistance to disabled people. I simply can not think that normal people will do mechatronic sex.

What about relationship, emotions and raw excitement!! Does not sex need love and emotions? Why does sex mean “making love”? I think that those kinds of artificial sex are like tube feeding to patients in the hospital. I can imagine that scientists may think about artificially produced food because natural food may not be adequate in future. There will always be as many men as women. No gender will fall short in number, There should be some kind of movement to discourage robot sex.
