i know dr. LaVey was quite fond of creating these and I was pleasently surprised to discover a large article on them when reading the Metro.
It was interviewing two people who owned them. A lady owned one for sexual release but also unconditional love and a man owned one just for sex when his wife was away instead of cheating on her.

I knew LaVey would have been proud.

Really, which day's Metro?

I tend to only flick through it on the train, and I didn't notice this.

I am more surprised at the "unconditional love" than anything else

i think it would be the best invention ever. although, im sure a bunch of matrix/i,robot movie tards would freak out- I hate how people get scared of new technology. stem cells, anyone?

I wonder if people would get irked if their spouses cheated w/an android??

I would like to register that I love the movie "AI". The story was good in parts, irksome in others... But Jude Law is fantastic as robotic gigolo Joe.

Oh I'm sure it would happen... once you start giving anything else attention other than you're woman they start to get jealous and complain.

That is at least the general concensus. There are some nymphomaniacs out there, they're just hard to find

AI was pretty good, it was just SOOOOOO LOOOONNNG. woah.

I dont think I would mind if my boyfriend fucked a robot if he wanted something new. People get bored of each other sexually... it happens. I think having androids around to take out sexual aggression would be such a benefit to all mankind. rapists and child molestors could get all the jollies they can afford without hurting anyone. It seems like japan has a huge interest in sex robots too- many a hentai is centered around that very idea. Maybe they will be the first ones to built em? I know theres one japanese scientist trying to make a robot that is capable of love.

Jude Law kept My attention

I don't see that the use of sex androids would be anything more harmful to a relationship than masturbation (with or without toys).

I fully expect the Japanese will make them first.

I'd imagine that people would get irked if their partner 'cheated' with an android. It's the cheating part that seems to upset them! Not who with. (unless of course it's their sister/mother/brother/dog)

I still find the whole 'androids for sex' thing a bit weird. I've had no problems finding all my sexual gratification and fantasy with real people, and feel that part of the fun is the chase, the seduction and the learning what gets the other person going! If you had a machine, that no matter how attractive, would want you at the press of a button, kinds of takes away the fun! Another advantage of human sexual partners, is on the whole, they are 'self cleaning!' No matter how great the sex, you're going to have to get your bottle brush out, and give it a good scrubbing afterwards!
There also seems to be a lack of imagination when it comes to sexual androids. If you can make the machine look like anybody, why limit yourself to making it male or female? Why not make one that both sexes can use at the same time? Make something that adds something new to your sex life instead of something that is a substitute for something.
Personally I'd be more excited about an android that could clean my house, service my car and do the shopping, than one that could jerk me off!

But in this case, it's not even a "who", as a "what". It's arguably no more cheating than a girl using a vibrator.

Do remember however that what you desire sexually and what everyone else desires sexually is not necessarily the same. For example, some may have sexual desires that would not be legal or "convenient" with a human. Some may want to indulge in personal fantasies but not want to share the fact that they enjoy a given fantasy. Some may simply find it "another sex toy" like any other. As for the "thrill of the chase", again, there are many people who nevertheless might like sometimes to enjoy the ends without the means.

If nothing else, it'd be a very profitable venture for those involved in it commerically.

Why are you placing your own imagined limits on this technology? Do you think it'd be difficult to add a self-cleaning feature? My dishwasher cleans itself remarkably well (not that I use it for sex, now that would be weird). It's not especially advanced technology.

Well done! You've found a niche in the market! By all means, get designing, apply for a patent, become rich when it sells all over the world

I do believe these things are being worked upon as well.

There is much to be gained from the industry in the future - whether you be one who would enjoy such services, or one who would make money from them, or both.

I think it's an excellent part of Pentagonal Revisionism.

Don't get me wrong, I think the development of androids will be an exciting and fun thing! And if anybody has a need to shag one, then go ahead! No problem with that at all! It's just not on the top of my list of uses for them.
As for me putting the limits of my imagination on this technology, I'm a qualified electronics engineer, so I'm thinking of potiental design problems that would need to be over come. My oven is self cleaning, and it does it badly! My dishwasher is also self cleaning, it does that badly as well! I suppose though, the android could be programmed to go and shower itself! But we all know where that would lead!! It would use all the hot water, spend ages in the bathroom, and use up all your expensive bath oils!!
As for the definition of 'cheating,' it's the deception that gets people upset. If my partner had bought a vibrator, but decided to keep it hidden, and use it in secret, I would be mildly pissed off, as I'm sure she would be with me if I kept a secret stash of porn.

Now you say it would be weird to use a dishwasher for sex. Agreed, but a washing machine with a fast spin cycle and a copy of the Yellow Pages............. now we're talking fun!!

I actually have heard female sheeple talk about being jealous if their partners masturbate in any form. Geez, talk about insecure. What do they think, he/she is going to run away with themselves. Ha! Ha!

I agree wholeheartedly, it is a very exciting and intriguing concept in the making.

Great post Linguascelesta. I especially like the reference to the dish washer. I would remind you, however, that while it my not be your kink, there may be people out there that prefer their dishwashers. You just never know.

Once upon a time I had a companion who's thought process was exactly as you described. In her ignorance she couldn't fathom that masturbation was keeping me from cheating.

I prefer an android as a companion as they only require a little mechanical maintenance here and there.

Keyword companion, meaning a life long team-mate.
I still prefer a fleshly lover.

well, mostly ive heard women bitch about men mastubrating to porn, but their vaginas are all dried up anyway so what do they want their husbands to do??

men have gotten intimidated by toys as well, but in much smaller numbers.

They want their men to suffer as well.
In most cases women lose the attention of their mates because they don't pay attention to their attractive qualities. It is a humorous
and quite abundant observation to watch women of the flock excuse their personal aesthetic and sexual appeal because they are married or in some other mutually limiting companion agreement. Men are no exception either.
They plump and frump up wondering why their companions stare at other mates and masturbate rather than being forced to indulge in something they have to for the sake of being faithful to their mate. The word faithful brings about some interesting logic, in that a husband must keep faith and not question. ( the flaw of marriage and the religion that coined it.)

I am also reminded of the "flesh faire" scene in the movie Artificial Intelligence. (which was amusing to my strange sense of humor with the wantonness and creative destruction of objects resembling humans. You have to know one of my professions to understand this side of my humor.) It consisted of angry peons destroying abandoned/discarded/runaway robots and androids out of envy because of their pending obsoleteness due to the advent of life-like robotics. In my opinion, despite whether it's artificial make up, intelligence is still intelligence, as well as aesthetic is still aesthetic. It took living intelligence to create artificial intelligence. This phenomenon of a "mechanical scare" has occurred numerous times throughout history with every new break through invention. The weaklings are always afraid to lose their niche (although small and pathetic or big but still pathetic – i.e. fossil fuel "sharks" ) to innovative technology.
In the end their loss is only due to their own incompetence, survival of the fittest.

Yet again another humorous curiosity arises on this subject:

What will christianity's stance be on acts of sodomy and gay/lesbian acts committed on an android? It would then be evident that "god" in all of his omnipotence overlooked this near future possibility.
I am sure that they will concoct some mumbo-jumbo bullshit from the bible to excuse the flaws of their manufactured deity.
However, the issue creating the uproar will be priceless, another "cosmic joy buzzer".

Well considering masturbation is generally frowned upon I think we know the answer to this one. I remember seeing someone say "Sex is something to be enjoyed within a good, clean Xian marriage".

I take issue with this comment, because personally I find 'enjoyed' and 'good, clean' not necessarily compatible with one another.

True, but then you'd know that it was only telling you to fuck off because you told it to but would eventually be won over by your charm and wit, because that's what you programmed it to do. If it never was won over, then whats the point in a sex toy that refuses to have sex with you? Although thinking about it, I think I've dated a couple of those!

With a little AI, it could easily be programmed to choose a "personality" at random...and you would have mumble the correct sweet nothings and tickle the right spots in order for it to eventually succumb to your advances.

And for the days you can't be bothered with the chase, simply punch the "Just Bum Me Daft" override button.

Think of the money you would save on drinks and presents.

I've always found Lavey's concept about android companions very intriguing, I like the idea of having an artificial playmate I could program to my hearts desire.

The only fly in the ointment would be the politically correct labour government currently in power over here in blightly, the day android companions were invented the government would have an androids rights bill through parliament before the day had ended.

You underestimate peoples ability to lie to themselves and anthropomorphise anything. I for one would prefer a robot that can wash my car, go grocery shopping and give me a hand job, and still have enough juice in the battery for a beating at the end of the day. It's a brave new world coming...

>>I still find the whole 'androids for sex' thing a bit
>>weird.

Yes, I've noticed that you always get curiously defensive any time the subject comes up. I already know from past conversations that you're clueless as to why, for example, Westworld is on the COS suggested movie list.

>>If you had a machine, that no matter how attractive,
>>would want you at the press of a button, kinds of takes
>>away the fun!

This then begs the question of why one couldn't conceive of an android that had a degree of resistence built into the AI, or at least some sort of algorithms that would give the impression of coyness.

>>Another advantage of human sexual partners, is on the
>>whole, they are 'self cleaning!'

...which begs the question of why one couldn't imagine a self-cleaning android. Or at the very least, an android that's less high-maintenance than most humans out there.

>>There also seems to be a lack of imagination when it
>>comes to sexual androids.

Well what can I say, it's still a largely undeveloped industry. You have some good ideas, though. Why not put them to use and persue this area of technology?

>>But you'd still know!! It would be like mastering a
>>special move in Tekken, or finally getting Lara to make
>>the jump across to the oppersite ledge!

For decades now, humans have been making chess playing programs where the user doesn't really "know" the computer's next move, even if it is based on an exact set of algorithms. So I don't see why the sense of self-decision making can't be programmed. Most humans are more predictable than they appear anyway.

>>As for the money you'd save in presents and flowers,
>>think of how much you'd spend in batteries!

...which begs the question of why fuel-efficient androids wouldn't be conceivable.

I get my car washed for me by a mobile valeting company.
I do my grocery shopping on line and get it delivered (apart from the luxuries, which are never a chore to go and get myself)
I have my partner, or my own hands for hand jobs!
As for giving something a beating, I very rarely feel the need to beat anything, and if I do, I beat the thing that has given rise to that need!
I find most if not all of my needs met by herdlings who will do it for a pitance!
Androids will be useful for keeping the herd subdued, to give them less to moan or get angry about.Giving them even less reason to use their imaginations!

Thats all well and good, but you pay for these things in some way repeatedly (the services, not the goods). You pay for an android slave once. Why give even a pitance to someone you consider to be sub-human?

You must have a pretty sweet job, to be able to beat on your coworkers like that. And what country is it that you can just punch a guy in the face that is rude to you on the street? I'd like to visit, but I certainly wouldn't want to live there. Then again maybe I would, depends on if they have decent icecream there.

Androids will be useful for making the herd unnecessary. The herd is already subdued, and always have been, for the most part.

>Thats all well and good, but you pay for these things in some way repeatedly (the services, not the goods). You pay for an android slave once.<

So these android slaves will need no maintance? I paid for my car once, I have to keep paying for it to run sweet and look good!

>Why give even a pitance to someone you consider to be sub-human?<

I don't consider them sub-human, just sub-Euphoria! They do the jobs I can't be bothered by, and if I didn't pay them, they wouldn't do it!

>You must have a pretty sweet job, to be able to beat on your coworkers like that. And what country is it that you can just punch a guy in the face that is rude to you on the street? I'd like to visit, but I certainly wouldn't want to live there. Then again maybe I would, depends on if they have decent icecream there.<

I'm the boss, so I don't have co-workers, I have employees, so on the whole they're pretty nice to me as I pay their wages!
If they're not, they get fired!
Why would I punch someone in the face for simply being rude to me? Sticks and stones my friend, sticks and stones! Like I said, I rarely feel the need to beat anything.
Unfortunately, one of the oldest family run ice cream producers in my town has just closed due to retirement! They will be missed!! Come and visit anyway, there's a wonderful Turkish resturant just down the street!

Outside of parts, they would maintain themselves, if they were worth a damn. I tend to be a tightwad, so I just can't see paying someone to deliver groceries. But if you prefer to do that then suffer the long lines and whining children, thats someting I can understand.

As for giving something a beating, I very rarely feel the need to beat anything, and if I do, I beat the thing that has given rise to that need!




That was the point I was getting at.
