Sex Robots

sex-robots3Some few years ago, the idea of sex robots was but a remote possibility, something close to science fiction. But this is no longer the case! Companies have come up with robots that will offer humans not just sexual pleasure, but also do so in a way that greatly resembles the real thing. From making the sounds and talks common during sex, these robots are designed to revolutionalize how people view sex and sex toys in particular. But this new invention is facing unprecedented opposition from activists who argue that the robots may have negative effects on the society.

One of the activists in the frontline against Sex Robots is Kathleen Richardson, who is a robot analyst at De Montfort University in Leicester, in the UK. She says that these robots can be confused by most people as ordinary toys that will help reduce the demand for sex workers, and other vices associated with the sex trade. But upon closer consideration, things are a bit more complicated.

“But then as I researched the subject more I found that the opposite was true—that rather than reduce the objectification of women, children and also men and transgender people, these robots would contribute and reinforce their position in society (as objects).”

Although sex toys and dolls are not a new phenomenon, what’s different about these robots is the fact they are made so much like a real woman; human size, and the ability to moan, whine, even whisper some nice words during sex with a man. In China, sex robots made of rubber, silicone, and other soft materials are common with clients from all over the world.  They are given feminine names, and the buyer is made to feel like they really own a real woman.

One of the leading companies making sex robots is True Companion, a company famous for making the first sex robot in the world. The robot was named Roxxy, and could among other things have an orgasm. Did you hear that? Yes, a robot capable of having an orgasm! Roxxy was hailed as a robot that was capable of identifying the user’s tastes, likes, dislikes, favorite styles, and so on so forth.
“Roxxxy provides physical and sexual pleasure but also provides social interaction and engagement,” said Douglas Hines, the brains behind Roxxy. “It’s customizing technology to provide a perfect partner – she’s not meant to replace a real partner but is meant as a supplement,” he added.

Hines also added that that the invention of Sex robots was a nice idea and would help reduce domestic and sexual abuse, even sex trafficking.

He argues that this phenomenon of sex robots was part of a global trend occasioned by the internet; people can shop from home, live alone and work from home. These are other social impacts of the internet, despite research showing that human being’s need of contact with others is essential.

“Introducing sex robots that could replace partners is the extreme of this trend, where we start to objectify our human relationships,” he concluded.

Lab grown vagina´s

Posted by on Oct 22, 2015 in Science |

sexy_scientistA dream has come true for almost the entire population of teenage boys who are nerdy, have no game, and are heterosexual: Labs are now creating vaginas!  The idea behind the process compared to those of the teenage boys is a little different than one might think. Its not for the purpose you are thinking either, keep your mind out of the gutter!

At the Institute for Regenerative Medicine (Wake Forest Baptist), they discovered the ability to grow vaginal organs in labs. After these are grown, they were able to implant them successfully into a group of four women in their teens. They were able to do this using the teenage woman’s own cells.

The four women chosen for this operation all had a rare syndrome called “Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser”.  This condition prevents the uterus and vagina from fully developing; in some cases they are missing entirely. This rare phenomenon is only seen in 1/4500 woman.

Other efforts have been made in attempts to treat this issue. Tissues from the intestinal tracts and buttocks were used, but were not very successful.  The Wake Forest Baptist discovered a groundbreaking method by using cells and muscle from the patient’s outer tissue from the genitals. Dr. Anthony and a team of experts discovered this.  They were able to develop the tissue in four weeks from only a sample size of a postage stamp.  Once this point is reached, they attach the skin to a biodegradable material that is in the shape of a vagina, and is hand sewn.  It is comparable to the shape of a champagne glass.

Following the fifth week, the medical surgeons suture the piece to the patient’s reproductive organs. This process actually promotes the formation of blood vessels and scaffold cells to grow leading to a “new vagina”.

sexy_scientist2This surgery took place between June 2005 and October 2008. Between the four involved, they found fully recovered and fully functioning vaginas! After the patients filled out a questionnaire for “Female Sexual Function Index”, they all reported regular, non-painful, sexual function, desire, and intercourse. This shows a promising efficient vaginal reconstruction application for us as we move towards the future. This also serves patients with vaginal cancer, congenital syndromes, and varied injuries!

Science is a wonderful thing!
