Researchers Claim Sex Robots Will Be Future Of Sex Tourism

By Candice Leigh Helfand

LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) — Are robots the future of prostitution and sex tourism? That’s what two New Zealand researchers are claiming.

Ian Yeoman, management professor, and Michelle Mars, sexologist, are field experts at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. Their work together revolved around the concept of futuristic sex tourism.

The hypothesis? Sex robots would become the leading ladies of sex-for-profit in the seemingly distant year of 2050.

The paper was called “Robots, Men and Sex Tourism,” a work that made its way into a journal called Futures, according to a report in The Dominion Post.

Part of their research involved the hypothetical creation of an Amsterdam sex club called “Yub-Yum,” where robot women create a land rife with “sexual gods and goddesses of different ethnicities, body shapes, ages, languages and sexual features.”

Dennis Hof, owner of the world-renowned Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Carson City, Nev., said that the plan is destined for failure.

“Those researchers ought to come to the Bunny Ranch to see what real American sex is like – there’s no way to duplicate it,” he told CBS Las Vegas. “At the Bunny Ranch, we say ‘it’s not just the sex, it’s an adventure’ – and often times it’s more about the adventure than it is the sex.”

However, Douglas Hines, founder of the world’s first sex robot company, True Companion LLC in Lincoln Park, N.J., noted the virtual lovers are already growing in popularity.

“Since we’ve launched the initial product … interest has ramped up dramatically in use by people in the U.S. and abroad,” he told CBS Las Vegas. “And the robots can assume any identity virtually … though we just have 18-plus as the age that the robot behaves like.”

The study detailed multiple health-related upsides to the use of robots in such locales.

”Robot sex is safer sex, free from the constraints, precautions and uncertainties of the real deal,” the paper said, adding that the robots would be cleaned of fluids and constructed of a bacteria-resistant material to further diminish the chance of sexually transmitted diseases and infections.

“One of the benefits of sex robots is that they remove exploitation of women from the equation, and the sex trade of underage [partners],” Hines added. “Underage women are exploited to meet the desires of others, whereas with the robots, there is no exploitation of anyone.”

Hof said that there is one element – a crucial one, in his opinion – that the robots will never be able to truly replicate for a man.

“The biggest part of the sex experience … is interaction with a woman,” he noted. “He wants to tell her stories, wants her to listen, wants her to act like she cares – a robot’s not going to do that.”

    Man oh man, I wouldn’t want to stick “mah junk” in one of those Roomba’s that would probably hurt…

    What’s that? A sex Robot? Oh… That’s ok then..

    • jumpy

      In the future, they should have police standing next to the counter of any store selling these, and immediately arrest anyone after making a purchase for being the worlds greatest loser.

      • eyes_open

        You are obviously a democrat.

      • Troy

        Must be a Reublican, A democrat would buy 3 of them. Oh wait, Republicans would want them so they can do behind closed doors what they want to ban from everyone else.

      • Bob

        Roger, based on your statistic, it sounds like your part of Kansas is the LEAST repressed area of the country. Sounds like they appreciate a good skin flick.

      • holugu

        Actually, Troy, that is a typical liberal practice: “Do as I say, not as I do” (the list of examples would be very long), but RINOs are not far behind.

        But I suspect it would be mainly women that would try to ban it, because a proliferation of sexbots (non-human that is) would make a hash of their “empowerment”, they would lose their leverage, and then they may have to develop some unheard of traits like character, dependability and stop being selfish, entitled byatches. No, not all of them are like that, but the ones that do have the above mentioned traits are in a diminishing minority.

      • Walter

        Democrats would expect government to pay for them.

      • Jane Says

        She looks like Sarah Palin. What a sham! I was shocked to learn how much of the news is completely orchestrated since unelected officials took control of the media for domestic spying after the coup and cover up.

        Search Palins Dirty Little Secret and learn what the state run media cannot cover.

      • Roger

        I can’t provide a citation but I have read that my part of Kansas is Time Warners best market for Pay Per View porn.

        This is about as conservative an area as you can imagine. Fred Phelps of Westboro Baptist fame is from the general area. Sam Brownback is our governer and both houses are firmly in conservative Republican control. To say that we are repressed is, I think, a vast understatement.

    • Hal

      hope she doesn’t short circuit on ya!

    • Sambone

      Does she come in blue? I’m a BIG Avatar fan.

      • Pork Chop

        For you? I am sure they will also make a Smurfette version.

      Cherry 2000! Finally, soon! The wait is nearly over…

    “Wants her to act like she cares – a robot’s not going to do that.”

    Neither do women!

    • unreal


    • FADUTA

      So far Clarity2011 has the best line!!!!

      • Huggy Bear

        I volunteer to be the pimp. I want 50%, or I will pop a 9 in y’all.

    • C-Dog

      Who cares? She has great lips.

    • mildsyd

      don’t brag

  • Andrew

    Spent twenty years with a robot, then got divorced and married a real woman.

    • holugu

      I tried three women in the last 40 years… and I want my money back!

      • Jsmith

        Three huh? Maybe THEY should get a refund ha ha ha.

      • holugu

        Jsmith, refund for what? I’d agree with a bag of skittles for each of them. That would truly cover it.

  • Rick

    For an extra $35 you can get an expansion chip and your fembot will emasculate you and tell you to do your chores.

    • John

      Only $35? Hell, it’s cost me at least $500k over the years.

  • Jeff

    A hand full of Vasoline Intensive Care is way cheaper.

    So instead of chocolate and flowers do I bring NiCads and code on a thumbdrive? “Hey baby, lemme see your USB port”

    • Bob L

      God that was funny. Thanks!

    • Chief

      Ha Ha Ha. Hilarious !

  • B

    A robot woman that provides sexual favors. Most of the time they’re called wives, and they’re just as mechanical.

  • Shecky Vegas

    I’d hate to be the clean-up crew for that industry…

  • theKnute

    We already have one in the White House

  • Okie Driller

    I always said that if they can that stuff women will have a real problem. Lots of openings here for sure.

    • justme

      “If a vibrator could mow the lawn, men would be out of a job.”

      payback is a fembot, ladies. :)

  • Matt

    They are on the way to developing the perfect woman.

    • Joe

      If it can make a sammich then it may be perfect

      • snrub

        And a flat head.

      • 51 Phantom

        Don’t forget a mute button. It’s gotta have a mute button.

    • some guy

      Perfect woman: stands 2 feet tall, no teeth, and a flat head so’s you can set your been on it.

      • some guy

        toyboat: beer, dammit, beer!

  • Verheek

    How about getting married to the right person?
    “The biggest part of the sex experience … is interaction with a woman,” he noted. “He wants to tell her stories, wants her to listen, wants her to act like she cares…” I already have that and it’s real. I don’t need a prostitute when I have the real deal. Porn seems so dissatisfying when you have the real deal with commitment.

    • Miles Monroe

      I dont think so. No period, no kids, no whiny inlaws. I’ll take the Rosie the Robot.

    • holugu

      May odds be ever in your favor!

      Though, I think you are for a surprise, one day.

      Or, I have a nice bridge for you to buy.

    • Going on 40 Years

      What? You must only have been married two weeks. When you get home from the honeymoon reality is gonna set in.

    • Walter

      The robot is better. She can serve the beers when the guys are over for football.

    • Walter

      They can program the robot to say: “Take out the garbage”, “Why don’t you make more money”,”My mother is coming for a visit”. To make the robot better, also have her say. “Oh my God, you are sooooo big”. Just make sure she does not say “I have a headache”

  • JWales

    I’m surprised the Obama Admin hasn’t sent these guys a federal grant…sounds as profitable as Solyndra.

    • Rich

      While there isn’t a risk of an spill, or pollution, this business isn’t green, and won’t help fight climate change, which is why it doesn’t get funding. The only way to get green now is to be green, or so it is said out of Washington.

      • JWales

        Better way to express it is “to get green from Washington just create the appearance of being green”. Also, there may be a way to harness the expenditure of human energy that would accompany utilizing the robots, just hook all the robots up to the power grid and start grinding out the electricity, maybe could run a Volt with one.

      • Going on 40 Years

        Sure there is, think of all the aerosols that aren’t going to be used every day for your robot.

      • Prez

        OH, there’s a huge risk of spill!!

    • henry

      Absolutely. It will even make a better society for us. No more teacher predsators, rapists, child molestors.Better return than any health care reform, social handouts, wall street bailouts.t

    • Miles Monroe

      They’re delivering a gross of them to the Treasury Department this week.

      • willie

        Rumor has it the secret service is interested in several units

    • MorganGray

      Nah… that would have been the Clinton admisistation. But, Bill would have wanted an in-depth and on-going demo of the prototype before he coughed up.

  • Bobby

    We need to deploy an army of those to the Secret Service…should keep Barry better protected!

  • James

    This is growing in popularity: among the mentally ill.

    For normal people, nothing is going to replace actual humans as the object of their desire. Sorry, this may be a future growing fringe business, but it’s not “the future” as in something that will be ubiquitous or could replace the real thing (or videos of the real thing).

    • willie

      A great example of your dollars at work, keeping mindless robots churning out junk science

      • robadude32

        And keeping mindless people occupied.

  • Mayor McCheese

    These idiots actually wrote a paper on this topic? This has been a theme in sci-fi novels/movies for years. Even Daryl Hannah’s character in “Blade Runner” was a ‘droid sex worker who developed emotions and became disgusted with her job.

    Next thing these researchers are going to tell us that future wars will be fought by robots…oh wait that was blade runner, star wars..etc.

    • Marisol


  • Cebes

    What a f***ing joke

  • Jackie

    If you consider how much money you spend on a real woman, you can easily see the benefit of a robot woman. Just hurry up and develop one that does not break so easily, can stand and walk on its own, is programmable, and beautiful enough to fill a centerspread in Playboy Magazine. Also make it less than $5,000. No more paying for prostiututes who leave you unsatisfied! No health issues with a robot either!

  • Fee

    Victoria University is in New Zealand, not Australia

  • James

    Sex robots? Oh mean you most women these days? Except they aren’t mechanical. They really don’t need to make them since most women these days are already sex robots who don’t care about anything but something shoved inside them.

  • iambicpentamaster

    How many years of R & D to produce one that ugly?

    • JWales

      Are hot looking ones more expensive than ugly looking versions?

      • willie

        yeah, and used ones are probably going to be cheaper.

  • JWales

    Will they be given voting rights? Is so the Dem Party may buy a few million of them.

  • JWales

    There is already precedent for robots voting for Dems.

    • holugu

      Yeah, Obots!

  • Nunya

    Good god? I could get what I need without having to hear that mouth? OMG sign me up.

    That’s why a man roles his eyes into the back of his head when hes getting oral. Becqause it’s the only time we get any peace and quite.

    • Sheezy

      hahaha, i co-sign that

    Sweet 12 months of straight loving. You can’t beat that, and they won’t complain if I have a rough day and come home pushing rope.
