UK Feminist Launches Campaign to Outlaw Sexbots

And so it begins. Dr Kathleen Richardson, a feminist academic working at De Montfort University in Leicester, has launched a campaign to outlaw the development of robots for sexual purposes.

A campaign has been launched calling for a ban on the development of robots that can be used for sex.

Such a use of the technology is unnecessary and undesirable, said campaign leader Dr Kathleen Richardson.

Sex dolls already on the market are becoming more sophisticated and some are now hoping to build artificial intelligence into their products.

Those working in the field say that there is a need for such robots.

Dr Richardson, a robot ethicist at De Montfort University in Leicester, wants to raise awareness of the issue and persuade those developing sex robots to rethink how their technology is used.

“Sex robots seem to be a growing focus in the robotics industry and the models that they draw on – how they will look, what roles they would play – are very disturbing indeed,” she told the BBC.

She believes that they reinforce traditional stereotypes of women and the view that a relationship need be nothing more than physical.

“We think that the creation of such robots will contribute to detrimental relationships between men and women, adults and children, men and men and women and women,” she said

It is not known whether ‘smart’ vibrators, and other automated ‘intelligent’ sex toys for women will be outlawed under Dr Richardson’s proposals, or if the plans just extend to sex toys designed for men.

RealDoll Makers to Produce Sex Bots – Is the Fapularity Near?

real-doll-sex-botSome call it the Fapularity – the moment in time when the decades long decline in the price of sex for men reaches its inevitable conclusion – a crash to absolute zero…and it’s likely coming soon. Both Sex Bots and Virtual Reality Porn are a lot closer than you might think – today the makers of the famous ultra-realistic ‘RealDolls’ announced plans for their first generation of sex bots – dolls equipped with artificial intelligence which will allow them to blink, change their facial expression, and even engage in rudimentary conversation.

http://www.cnet.com/news/talk-techie-to-me-realdoll-wants-to-make-sex-dolls-that-move-talk/

Unfortunately, feminists have already drawn up hypothetical legislation to ban sex bots or severely restrict their use and sale, before they arrive : http://theantifeminist.com/feminists-seek-legislation-over-sex-bots/

Meanwhile, it was officially confirmed last month that the producers of the Oculus Rift Virtual Reality device, which will go on commerical sale early next year, will NOT attempt to block porn being played on the gadget.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/05/19/oculus-rift-will-be-open-to-virtual-reality-porn

According to a leading adult industry insider, virtual reality porn will make all existing fap material obsolete :

“Virtual reality porn will make 2D porn obsolete,” said Helmy, founder and president of Xbiz, which, like AVN, publishes a sex industry trade magazine and hosts conferences and an annual adult entertainment awards show.

The kind of free porn being given away now, Helmy said, “will be of little worth.” What Helmy and many others are really excited about is the joining of virtual reality porn with haptics, technologies that add sense, touch and interactivity to the porn-viewing experience.

The RealTouch, an Internet sex toy, is already being used by couples in long-distance relationships and sex workers on webcam (“camgirls”). It facilitates synced-up, tactile interactivity between two people using computers.

“Traditional porn is like the cassette tape,” said Helmy. “Virtual reality is the CD. But virtual reality and haptics – that will be like the advent of the Internet. Viewing devices will be the driver – the ability to control the view naturally, through haptics.”

Social Media and Tinder are Leading to A Rise in STDs

Rhode Island is currently experiencing what health experts are calling an “epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases”—and hookup apps may be partially to blame, officials said.

From 2013 to 2014, infections of syphilis increased 79%, gonorrhea cases went up 30% and new HIV cases increased by about 33%, according to data released by the Rhode Island Department of Health.

The agency noted that the uptick could be sparked by better medical testing and more people having their STDs checked out and reported. However, the agency also acknowledged the role of high-risk behaviors, including “using social media to arrange casual and often anonymous sexual encounters, having sex without a condom, having multiple sex partners, and having sex while under the influence of drugs or alcohol,” the agency wrote in a health alert.

I should make clear that I’m NOT highlighting this story in order that Manosophere conservatives can tut tut at another sign of civilizational decline at the hands of feminists. Feminists did not cause the sexual revolution, feminists did not invent the pill, and they did not invent Facebook or Tinder. Feminists are, however, leading a brutal effort to turn back the tide of cheap and easy sex for men that new technology is increasingly giving us, a futile but ever more desperate backlash that might ultimately even lead to a Sexual Holocaust. That is unless a ‘Red Pill’ movement arises that is truly positive about sex, the male desire for sex with multiple partners, and that has a willingness to fight anti-sex feminist puritans.

NextBigFuture on the Sexbot Apocalypse

http://nextbigfuture.com/2015/04/americans-worry-about-terminator-robot.html

There are interesting cultural differences between Americans and Japanese. Americans fear the Terminator movie scenario of a robot or Artificial intelligence apacolypse. However, Japan is facing sharp population decrease from lowering birth rates. This could be accelerated with more realistic sexbots that extend the Japanese sex doll industry. This is part of Japan’s greater cultural acceptance of robots where they think that robots will like Astroboy or the manga fembots or the bots that care for the elderly.

The Japanese sex doll industry is reaching new levels with the release of a new line of dolls, which claims to be more genuine than ever. The dolls, which are made of rubber and silicon, were described in a video as having realistic feeling skin and authentic looking eyes and hair.

Feminist Attacks On Sexbots Continue

http://aeon.co/magazine/altered-states/how-will-sexbots-change-human-relationships/

Levy argues that as long as sexbots are artefacts, without ‘artificial consciousness’, there are no ethical implications in having sex with them or using them for prostitution. However, should sexbots attain artificial consciousness, Levy argues there may be both legal and ethical implications not only for humans but for the robots themselves. But even if sexbots are not currently conscious, they do have the external markings of personhood, and we are programming them to be person-like. Indeed, we are programming them to be like a specific type of person: the type of woman who can be owned by a heterosexual man.

If women are the model on which most sexbots are based, we run the risk of recreating essentialised gender roles, especially around sex. And that would be too bad, because sex technology has the potential to alleviate longstanding human problems, for both men and women. Sex tech can help us take on sexual dysfunction and profound loneliness, but if we simply create a new variety of second-class citizen, a sexual creature to be owned, we risk alienating ourselves from each other all over again.

The Possibility of an Island – Can We Build Our Own Refuges from Feminism?

seasteading-utopiaThe tentacles of feminism now reach into every nation and society on Earth. Sexual Trade Union theory explains this through accounting for feminism as a reaction to technological forces openeing the sexual market and lowering the sexual ‘price’ or SMV of most women. As these technological forces are present in all societies, then feminist Sexual Trade Union will emerge and strengthen everywhere, together with an accompanying growth in global political institutions and international NOGs that are vehicles for the spread of feminism worldwide.

There is nowhere left to run to. There is nowhere left to escape the coming holocaust.

But what if men could escape feminism by creating their own refuges? Perhaps there is the possiblility of an island, or rather, the possibility of creating our own islands?

From Wikipedia :

Seasteading is the concept of creating permanent dwellings at sea, called seasteads, outside the territory claimed by the government of any standing nation. Most proposed seasteads have been modified cruising vessels. Other proposed structures have included a refitted oil platform, a decommissioned anti-aircraft platform, and custom-built floating islands.[1] No one has created a state on the high seas that has been recognized as a sovereign nation, although the Principality of Sealand is a disputed micronation formed on a discarded sea fort near Suffolk, England.[2]

The closest things to a seastead that have been built so far are large ocean-going ships sometimes called “floating cities”, and smaller floating islands.

Seasteading is funded by the tech billionaire Peter Thiel, a libertarian who once expressed this opinion over the historical disaster of granting women the vote :

Since 1920, the vast increase in welfare beneficiaries and the extension of the franchise to women – two constituencies that are notoriously tough for libertarians – have rendered the notion of “capitalist democracy” into an oxymoron.

The seemingly far-fetched dreams of the Seasteading enthusiasts apparently became a little more realistic yesterday after the announcment that China plans to create artifical floating islands the size of Manhatten that will be self-contained cities that residents will both live and work on permanently :

http://nextbigfuture.com/2014/06/china-looking-seriously-at-creating.html

A new floating city designed by AT Design Office and the Chinese construction firm CCCC, is slated to begin development on a pilot scale next year.

“When the client came to us and talked about this project, I couldn’t believe it was true until I saw their technology,” says Anthony Phan, an architect at AT Design Office. CCCC, which commissioned the design, is currently building a 31-mile long bridge between Hong Kong and Macau using the same type of floating modules that will make up the new city.

Large prefab blocks join together to form the base of the 10-square kilometer island [Manhattan is 59 square kilometers], which will be filled with everything you’d expect on land. In theory, residents could spend all of their time in the new city.

“People won’t need to commute for jobs on land,” says Phan. “Work, apartments, entertainment and parks are all provided in the floating island.”

A large Chinese property investment firm is reviewing the design now and expected to begin testing some of its components in 2015.

The ‘Sexual Economy of Abundance’ and the ‘Jay Hammers Delusion’

The following is a short clip highlighting the amazing realism and beauty of the latest sex dolls from Japan. Orient Industries are the world’s leading manufacturers of realistic sex dolls. With the advent of 3D scanning and 3D printing, as well as advances in artificial skin tech, these dolls will continue to become ever more life-like and viable substitutes for real women.

The dolls could also be controlled over the internet for ‘virtual sex’ (or ‘telepresence sex’). Eventually, you will be able to print out these at home, choosing from a near infinity of designs, including any female on Earth who has more than a couple of pictures of herself (at 2 or 3 different angles) online. There will be applications written that can quickly analyse your biometric responses to a variety of female faces and bodies in order to construct your ‘ideal woman’, ready for you to download and print out in your bedroom as an incredibly realistic sex doll that no female on Earth could compare with.

Angry Harry writes of the day when men will have a surplus of perfect women to choose from, and notes that this will simply be the end point of the trend that has begun with the ubiquity of online images of female flesh a mere mouse click away. I think Angry Harry is right, and I can see the day when there is a sexual ‘economy of abundance’ for all men. In fact, the 80’s comedy film ‘Weird Science‘, in which a pair of horny teenage boys create the perfect sex object in their home laboratory, might eventually not seem so very far-fetched.

And this is why those traditionalists who appear to long for the day when men are happy to settle down with a sweet young woman, and then be forced by moral (if not legal) norms to stick with her exclusively for her entire aging life*, are believing in dangerous fantasies – and probably self-decietful ones at that. Likely as deceitful as the manosphere PUAs who claim they are hate fucking their way around the world in order to ‘defy feminism’ and to restore traditional morality, when they could far more easily support traditionalism by simply moving permanently to Russia and marrying a faithful local woman in a non-feminist society that appears very much to be trying to maintain or restore traditional sexual norms.

Henceforth, I will call this fantasy, genuine or deceitful, the ‘Jay Hammers Delusion‘. Jay Hammers, the author of the excellent and infamous ‘Age of Consent is Misandry‘, commented here quite recently (after his mental breakdown) expressing his conviction that in 50 years time, while ‘sluts’ are being ‘righteously’ stoned to death in order to preserve family values, men are going to be legally free to download as much holographic tactile porn and ultra-realistic sex dolls as they want. Although, of course, most men won’t want to, fortunately enough, because like Jay and all the other PUAs and even MGTOWs, all they really want is a nice faithful non-slutty woman to marry and raise children with.

Good luck with that Jay, and to all the other MRAs who share your delusion.

*Presumably such traditionalists will be turning down the radical life extension therapy that will be widely available in as little as 10 or 20 years time, unless they believe in sharing the same bed for 1,000 years.
