Sex robots could most definitely facilitate simulated rape or could be programmed for rape fantasies, raising ethics questions over whether the use of robots would reduce sex crimes or perpetuate rape culture.
According to a report released by the Foundation for Responsible Robotics earlier this month, robotics experts and researchers are split on whether sex robots could provide therapeutic prevention to rapists and pedophiles, or if they would reinforce such behavior to be acted out on other people.
The report presented an overview of a “technological state-of the-art in sex robots and parallel sextech” by examining seven questions including, “Will sex robots change societal perceptions of gender?” “Could robots help with sexual healing and therapy?” and “Would sex robots helps to reduce sex crimes?”
The foundation concluded that sex robots may not positively impact society’s view of gender and gendered stereotypes, and could instead amplify the objectification and commodification of women’s bodies in the porn industry.
As for sexual healing and therapy, sex robots could allow some users to address problems with sexual functioning or social anxiety. Additionally, the ethics of sex robots being used for people with disabilities or elderly people are more uncertain.
However, as far as how well sex robots could help suppress “disordered or criminal sexual desires” such as rape and pedophilia, experts disagree. Even before examining the legality of owning dolls depicting pornographic representations of children, or dolls that express an extreme likeness to real people, professors in philosophy and ethics argue that allowing someone to act on those desires on a doll as a means of repressing such desires in real life is illogical.
“Treating paedophiles with robot sex-children is both a dubious and repulsive idea. Imagine treating racism by letting a bigot abuse a brown robot. Would that work? Probably not. If expressing racist feelings is a cure for them, then we wouldn’t see much racism in the world,” philosophy professor and robot ethicist Patrick Lin told the foundation.
Not only is there a possibility of encouraging such behavior, but sex robot technology too can be programmed to simulate rape, just as with “Roxxxy,” a sex robot from company True Companion, which possesses a pre-programmed personality called “Frigid Farah” that responds unappreciatively to touches in her “private areas.”
“Many others believe that [expressing disordered or criminal sexual desires with a sex robot] would be an indulgence that could encourage and reinforce illicit sexual practices,” the foundation concluded. “This may work for a few, but it is a very dangerous path to tread. It may be that allowing people to live out their darkest fantasies with sex robots could have a pernicious effect on society and societal norms and create more danger for the vulnerable.”
95 percent of the victims of work accidents are men. Because women are cowards, and just want to rule from behind.
Kawinnart Sae Zong, 33, was absolutely furious after finding out her husband was cheating on her with several different women.
To enact her revenge, Kawinnart waited until her husband, Niran Sae Wang, fell asleep around 2am at their marital home.
She then took a kitchen knife to the love rat’s tackle, completely dismembering his manhood.
After neighbours were alerted to the situation by Wang’s screams, they found him writhing around on the floor in agony, suffering from severe bleeding.
The neighbours took the ironically named Wang to Lampang Hospital, which specialises in penis reattachment.
But relatives of the scorned bride found her locked in a room in their house in Santisuk Village, Thailand.
In her blind rage, Kawinnart had drank pesticide and had to be taken to hospital, police revealed.
She was immediately taken to hospital but died from poisoning.
Surgeons managed to reattach Wang’s penis and he was able to urinate again.
But, in a parting gift from his late wife, he will never be able to have sex again due to ligament damage.
It’s well-known that cannabis can have an aphrodisiac effect on the consumer, but there’s a new strain on the California cannabis market that the original grower claims is specifically designed to enhance the sexual experience of women, and even help them achieve orgasm.
The strain is called Sexxpot and grower Karyn Wagner developed it. Sexxpot’s parent strain is Mr. Nice, which has a solid reputation for offering sensual, aphrodisiac effects. Mr. Nice comes from two popular strains – G13 and Hash Plant.
Wagner’s goal was to take the best sex-enhancing characteristics of Mr. Nice and figure out how to intensify those feelings. Sexxpot was the result of Wagner and her company brainstorming about how to take Mr. Nice and develop it into Ms. Even Nicer.
Wagner and her crew claim to have succeeded with this goal, offering a unique selling point on the Sexxpot strain. A strain allegedly designed to help women orgasm is sure to see steady market growth.
It might seem counterintuitive, but Sexxpot has a relatively low THC level of 14 percent. Wagner thinks that since the strain has less THC that it may actually be a better for improving sex as opposed to the heavy hitters.
The thought process is that lower THC could be just enough to heighten the senses while still relaxing and removing inhibitions. A high THC strain, or especially a dab, could leave the occasional toker on the couch. Sexxpot is still predominantly indica, tending to lean towards more intense body highs. Wagner and her team wanted to make sure that this strain wasn’t so strong that users ended up spaced out before they were even able to get into bed.
Sexxpot is only available in California for now, but as the market continues to grow – and the strain’s popularity continues to rise – that will likely change. This particular approach to a strain is one of the many interesting ones that growers, entrepreneurs and other cannabis professionals have thought of. It is a hint towards the future of cannabis – specific strains designed for very specific things.
Is Sexxpot truly the first of its kind, or do you know of any other strains designed with similar intentions? What strains have you found that help your sex life? Let us know in the comments.
