I’ve never understood the concept of sex dolls. They aren’t better than the real thing and surely aren’t worth the cost if you’re just trying to get your rocks off. That’s what XNXX and a box of tissues are for. Apparently, the sex doll industry is big enough that companies can charge between $5,000 and $10,000 per doll. That’s crazy.
If the idea of sticking your dick into a plastic, customizable mannequin isn’t creepy enough, how about sticking it into a doll that can actually blink and talk? Matt McCullen, the creator of RealDoll, has started to develop these real life sex dolls.
From NY Times:
Mr. McMullen’s new project, which he is calling Realbotix, is an attempt to animate the doll. He has assembled a small team that includes engineers who have worked for Hanson Robotics, a robotics lab that produces shockingly lifelike humanoid robots.
Mr. McMullen is first focusing on developing convincing artificial intelligence, and a robotic head that can blink and open and close its mouth. He’s also working to integrate other emerging technologies, like a mobile app that acts like a virtual assistant and companion, and virtual reality headsets that can be used separately or in tandem with the physical doll.
So essentially, he’s creating a robot girlfriend. McCullen also said that these things will cost you $10,000. It’s only a matter of time before they start nagging about you leaving the toilet seat up, asking you if her dress makes her look fat, and tries to keep you from going out on Friday night with the boys.
Look, if I’m looking for some no-strings-attached sex, I’m hopping on Tinder, hitting the bars, or sending a “hey what’s up?” text to every girl in my phone at 2 a.m. I’m not about to pay top dollar for some robot to be a companion that can also blow me.
If you absolutely had to stoop to buying something to fuck, it’s a lot cheaper to go the prostitute route. Just saying..
