The Day When We’re All Banging Robots is Drawing Near

The Day When We’re All Banging Robots is Drawing Near: Via 'Robot Chicken'.

Over the next 50 years, having sex with robots will become a normal part of everyday life. At least that’s what a random doctor quoted by a sleazy British Tabloid is claiming.

Dr. Helen Driscoll, a “leading authority on the psychology of sex and relationships” at the University of Sunderland, claims that robotic technology is advancing at such a rate that, eventually, sexual relationships with robots might actually be preferable to those with other humans.

“As virtual reality becomes more realistic and immersive and is able to mimic and even improve on the experience of sex with a human partner, it is conceivable that some will choose this in preference to sex with a less than perfect human being,” Dr. Driscoll said.

The notion of robot sex being socially acceptable might seem far fetched. But considering how quickly attitudes have changed in regard to things like online dating, it’s certainly within the realm of possibility.

“We tend to think about issues such as virtual reality and robotic sex within the context of current norms,” Dr. Driscoll said. “But if we think back to the social norms about sex that existed just 100 years ago, it is obvious that they have changed rapidly and radically.”

To put it another way, if your great grandfather could see the awful things you do to your iPad, he’d probably be pretty confused and upset. Someday, when you walk in on R2D2 plugging himself into your grandson’s “computer port,” you’re likely to feel the same way. But remember, it’s you who are out of touch, not society.
