The world's first "sexbot" — a life-sized rubber doll named Roxxxy who can chat about football — has been unveiled.It's about time. For years, lonely drunks at the end of the bar have been slurring, after 10 or 12 beers, "They can put a man on the moon, but they can't invent a sports-loving sex robot."
Finally, their alcohol-fueled prayers have been answered.
Roxxxy (only a slutty robot would have three X's in her name) has "impressive, flesh-like, synthetic skin" (during the winter months, so do I), "artificial intelligence (which does not mean she went to community college) and a "fake skeleton, letting her move like a REAL woman" (and I thought guys only liked fake boobs... silly me).
Prospective owners can pick from the five different "personalities" depending on their individual preference.Interesting, since the prospective owners only have one personality in real life-- Larry the Loser.
There is Wild Wendy - who is outgoing and adventurous, Frigid Farah - who is reserved and shy, Mature Martha and S&M Susan - available for more adventurous types.
The cost for this chatty sexbot is in the $7,000-$9,000 range. I bet these guys have never spent that much money on a real woman-- you know, one without a fake skeleton-- during their entire pathetic life span.
Now, I understand a man's need for sexual release-- adult book stores, strippers and prostitutes all have their place in society (usually out by the airport)-- and I will even try not to judge a dude who mail orders an inflatable doll (although after having a balloon blow up in my face, I'm not sure why he would want one.)
But, when a robot tries to take the place of a human woman I have to draw the line.
Mr Hines, from TrueCompanion, said the doll could carry out simple conversations and was designed to "know exactly what you like".Might I suggest talking to a therapist instead.
He said: "Sex only goes so far, then you want to be able to talk to the person.
