Have sexbots replaced human women? A Very Serious We Hunted the Mammoth Investigation, with silly videos

Dream on, dudes

By David Futrelle

I‘ve been covering the manosphere’s collective obsession with sexbots since the start of this blog more than eight years ago. Back then, some in this weird internet community were predicting the almost-imminent arrival of sexbots that were both affordable and (to these guys anyway) virtually indistinguishable from real women.

Indeed, some were saying that in as few as ten years, these sexy robot ladies would become so ubiquitous and so realistic that actual human women would go obsolete.

Well, it hasn’t been quite a decade yet, but I thought I’d go ahead and see how things were going in the worlds of sex robotics and woman obsoleting.

But first, let’s remind ourselves of what sexbot technology looked like way, way back in the dark age of the early 2010s. In March of 2011, I wrote about a sexy robot lady by the name of Roxxxy, put together by a company called True Companion LLC, and capable of what her creators thought were some truly seductive moves. Roxxxy, I wrote,

can turn her head like Linda Blair in the Exorcist and mechanically banter with non-robot men using a variety of canned phrases that sound a lot like what a perpetually dateless non-robot man might imagine a sexy lady would say if ever one deigned to speak to him. 

She could also wiggle a little bit in what Roxxxy’s creators evidently thought was a sensual manner.

There have been impressive, and sometimes terrifying, improvements in robot technology since then. Humanesque robots can now run and jump and pick up boxes and do a bit of light parkour.

They can even do backflips.

Some non-humanesque robots can bowl with stunning accuracy, if not in the conventional manner.

And this creeepy quadraped can get through doors, even if you, erp, don’t particularly want it to.

Meanwhile artificial intelligence and voice recognition technology has developed to the point that for a mere $30 (and the total loss of your privacy) you can equip your home with smart speakers that will converse freely with you on such topics as the current weather and how old Kirk Douglas is. (According to my friend “Google Assistant” he’s 102 years old.)

So how have the sexy robot ladies been coming along? Well, here’s the new, improved (?) Roxxxy, as of 2018. Her “conversation” still seems like a string of canned phrases.

And her allegedly human-like movements, well, let’s just say they have a way to go before they even reach the uncanny valley.

As for her sex moves? Well, if this inadvertently hilarious R-rated video of her on PornHub is any indication, they still seem to consist mostly of wiggling. (Then again, that’s also my signature sex move.)

Meanwhile,”Emma” here is definitely not ready for prime time.

There are some other “sexbots” out there that seem a tad more human-like than these two though they too have their, er, limitations.

Here’s one that was, I believe, designed to look like Scarlett Johansson, which she doesn’t quite pull off, though she is a good deal more human-looking than Roxxxy. But her mouth movements are scary and unsynchronized and her wink, well, let’s just say it could use a bit of work, unless you’re intending to use her to frighten small children and more sensitive adults.

She might also want to work on her posture, which currently resembles that of the marionettes from Team Amerca: World Police.

This sex robot head is probably the most realistic-looking of them all, at least if you’re really into rubber heads. But its “flirting” is more than a little bit mechanical. Also, it’s just a head, designed to be attached to an otherwise immobile sex doll.

So in conclusion:

Sexbots have not yet rendered women obsolete.

But if you’re a lady-hating man who nevertheless wants to fuck a lady RIGHT NOW, might I suggest a cheaper Do-it-Yourself alternative to the still-imperfect yet extremely pricey models featured above?

While lacking a little in the body department, this DIY model will answer simple questions while you go to town on its artificial vagina. All you need is a smart speaker, a Fleshlight or something similar, a roll of duct tape, and a sturdy stick. Just attach the speaker and the Fleshlight to the opposite ends of the stick with the tape, as shown below. (You can also swap out the Fleshlight with a dildo if that’s your preference.)

For added realism, you can print out a picture of your favorite celebrity lady and tape it over the speaker. Ta-da! The perfect sexbot.

Technology marches on. I’ll check back in another eight or nine years to let you know if women are obsolete by then.

I’m sure someone has made something like the final design before. Not my thing, but hey, if Alexas mounted on sticks with Fleshlights are anyone’s fantasy, go ahead! No judgement.
And if any PUAs are reading this, please pick that thing up instead of bothering any more women.

It never ceases to amaze (and amuse) me how much these guys seriously expect us to get jealous of a glorified (and very overpriced) Fleshlight.

What really gets me, though, is how none of them have actually Gone Their Own Way yet.

Serious question; how much do people here actually think sexbots will have advanced, and how mainstream do you think they’ll be, in 10 years time? In 50? In 100?

One time I had a fight with my fiancé that actually involved me yelling at him “why don’t you just go buy a sex bot then if you want something you can fuck that will always agree with you” Strangely enough that idea did not actually appeal to him. Turn out the mra are wrong about them replacing women.

Ha, that long-winded manifesto predicting that by 2020 men would rise up en masse and dump women for sexbots was my introduction to the manosphere a decade ago. A male relative emailed it to me because he thought it was “interesting” and the author “made some good points.” (When questioned further, male relative summed up said allegedly “good points” as “well if you follow his links he pretty much proves that people are basically shitty” or something along those lines. Weird conversation.) Absolutely disgusting to read that, of course, but it did jar me into realizing this was a Really Bad Thing I needed to pay attention to.

@WWTH, to summarise that Juicebro thread:

3. It’s wrong to look for a political angle in pedo stories

How can he not self-combust when writing (3)?

I thought I was soooo smart. I thought feminism was the wave of the future. I thought we could defeat patriarchy. But no. They’ve got sex dolls now, ones that will say all the obsequious, not to mention risque, things a man wants to hear. Can you believe that it wouldn’t have occurred to me to ask a man I’d barely met how big he was!

Outsmarted and outmaneuvered by the patriarchy and a piece of plastic with a computer in it.

That’s amazing news about Jeffrey Epstein. Thanks for that info.

Every now and again I think about the woman who alleged that Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump raped her when she was thirteen years old. As I recall — although I don’t see it in a Google search — this woman (name unknown) said that during at least one of these rapes Trump was brutal, slamming her head against the wall or the floor (I forget which). Chilling. I keep wondering whether it’s true. . . .

Is it just me or does “Harmony” have a Scottish accent?

(Also, the music they used to open and close that clip seems inappropriately poignant to me, like it was going to be a tragic piece about poor Harmony’s attempts to find love in this cruel world 😢)

And they accuse us of branch swinging…

Interesting that the Epstein case is being handled by the SDNY Public Corruption Unit. That’s the division that handles government corruption at the federal level. Bet Acosta is sweating bullets right now.

Meanwhile, Trump will claim he never knew Epstein, followed by a series of deranged tweets about rats.

I feel like the robot would accidentally say something that sounds vaguely suggestive of cheating, then they’d swear that it was cheating on them with an ‘alpha’ and destroy it. Then demand they’re entitled to a new one.
Sort of like the Stardew Valley thing a few months ago.

epitome of incomprehensibility

I want the dog robot that opens doors! …Here’s a thought: what’s if the only thing men are good for is opening doors for women? If women get door-opening robots, then MEN WILL BE RENDERED OBSOLETE!

Wait, that’s incredibly stupid. (Also, automatic doors exist already.) 😀

On a more serious note, @Kat, I’d heard of those allegations before. I think SFHC (who used to comment here more often) brought it up. At first I just skimmed over them, but a few weeks ago it came up on a Twitter thread about E. Jean Carroll’s accusations and there was a link to court documents from the previous case.

Of course I can’t automatically know what’s true, but I feel bad for dismissing it in the first place just because it seemed unlikely and sensationalist. Epstein was already known to molest teenagers, Trump to be Trump.

There’s more on Epstein here and how he was threatening people, even the staff of Vanity Fair magazine, not to report on sexual abuse claims against him: https://www.thedailybeast.com/i-tried-to-warn-you-about-sleazy-billionaire-jeffrey-epstein-in-2003

2 Things:
1 – I think the door-opening quadruped looks adorable when the annying human is obstructing its very legit desire to just go through a door dangit.

2 – Whenever sexbots get brought up, my first thought is: “Who cleans their bits after use?” I mean, I’m sceptical of these MRA-types devotion to cleanliness so I’d guess the bot would need a self-cleaning program. Would that be detachable naughtybits put in the wash or some kind of internal program/function? If the latter, I can’t help but imagine mangled genitalia caused by an error where the bot decides to initiate cleaning mid-use.

Don’t be ridiculous!

There’s also jars.

On Epstein: wasn’t there a massive fire recently on his private island? It would sure be a shame if a lot of evidence had been “accidentally” destroyed.

Never understood the thing about jars. Butter knife under the rim of the lid, twist slightly until the suction is released, open. Takes 5 seconds and no effort.

Is it just me, or are the claims that these robot ladies “smile” a bunch of hooey?

Even if they manage to make sexiest sexbot ever, I won’t worry until they make one that can cook, do the washing up and laundry, too.

Not even then, though, because I’m not interested in anyone who thinks that robots and people are interchangeable.

That one doesn’t always work. Same with smacking the base and smacking the lid against the counter. And usually when I need help it’s because my hands are greasy from cooking, so he’d better damn well help out. 😛

1) The bowling robot is cgi. Neat to watch though.

2) re: the Roxxxy vid above the pornhub link: “I can look all around me.” In two directions at once! Why in the world didn’t they align her eyes before they shot this??

3) I think Harmony’s development is being funded by Trump. An Ivanka that never ages or marries someone else. They’ve done really well with the AI, since I sure can’t tell the difference (though Harmony seems smarter, what with Wikipedia in her head and all). If they can just get her to stop asking how big he is, Harmony will be his ideal woman.

Sorry. ::hands out brain bleach::

Call me eccentric, but I would actually prefer one of those robots (assuming of course it was truly sentient and willing to stay with me of its own will) if they didn’t look like they were trying so hard to be human.

Let’s be honest here, these robots are not going to be human no matter how realistic their skin is made to look, so why waste time with the uncanny valley when a humanoid form alone would be sufficient? It’s just a frivolous waste of resources for people who don’t want to admit that they want to sleep with a machine.

*sigh* Again, how many comedies have used this idea for fodder and they’re still pining for it? Futurama? Cherry 2000? Tripping The Rift?

Guys, just… even if these things do somehow emerge from the Uncanny Valley (not likely), it’s not going to salve whatever misanthropy and misogyny is lurking beneath. Sex doll manufacturers already have to deal with repairs to abused dolls. You’re just going to do the same thing to something even more costly.

Although a thought did just occur to me. In Star Trek, the Holodeck was essentially video gaming taken to its logical extent. Worf hacked through monsters, Tasha Yar beat up some hapless martial arts guy, Tom Paris and Harry Kim played Captain Proton and Bashir and O’Brien played Battle of Britain in Quark’s Holosuite (which Quark hinted was basically used for adult purposes by everyone else).

Humans of the 24th century were so perfect as to make Eagle Scouts look lowbrow, but what about some of the less quote-unquote “enlightened” species? Were… some of them acting out serial killer or sadistic sex fantasies in the Holodeck? I get that a PG show couldn’t really address stuff like that but… I mean unless there was some kind of monitoring of those facilities… pretty much anything goes, right?

I mean, even the idea of playing out major battles is kinda macabre in and of itself. As much as Bashir and O’Brien liked to play as history’s underdogs… they could have easily played as Napoleon ordering his cannon to fire upon the frozen Satschan Pond as the Russians and Austrians were fleeing across it, plunging hundreds of terrified men and horses into the freezing waters. I wouldn’t put it past somebody who had programmed an Austerlitz holodeck program to do that just to experience that kind of malevolent power.

Just a nerd thought. Have a funny!

Wasn’t there a storyline on one of the shows where the Federation encountered a civilization that insisted they couldn’t give up their ritualized hunting of other sentient species or their culture would collapse, so the Federation characters gave them holo-technology so they could at least do it without hurting anyone, only for the Voyager crew to discover a few years later that the civilization had decided the standard holo-characters weren’t enough of a challenge to kill and had boosted their AIs to the point where they were fully conscious and capable of experiencing pain and fear?

(checks google) – oh yeah, this was a four-episode story arc on Voyager about “the Hirogen” (on of those SFnal all-hunting/fighting all the time alien civilizations where you can’t figure out who’s doing the farming or looking after the children who aren’t physically able to fight yet – at least Voyager implied the Hirogen’s obsession with hunting was causing the decline of their species *because* they were devoting all their resources to that and nothing else – still you’d think the collapse would have come faster than over centuries.)

Yup but then the sentient holo prey got tried of being hunted and killed over and over and started fighting back at levels that weren’t fun for the Hirogen any more.

You know, if Star Trek was feeling really daring, a fresh take on that episode might be if holographic sex workers were given that level of self-awareness and began to lash out at patrons that abused them and started demanding rights. Certainly would make for an interesting extension of their series-wide examination of artificial life forms.

Well, Star Trek did have the original ‘Hollow Pursuits’ episode, the one that introduced Reginald Barclay, where one of the characters in Barlclay’s holosuite setup was a nude version of Deanna Troi with open and welcoming arms. (At the very least, she was carefully shown in the episode only from shoulders-up to not show anything.) Now, whether or not Barclay’s self-confidence issues kept him from actually doing anything was another question.

And Mike Cernovich is working overtime on Twitter trying to take credit for the arrest and doing everything he can to pretend like Trump could possibly be involved with the pedo ring.

I didn’t see him trying to link Trump and the pedo ring? I think a link exists, nonetheless, based on this quote from the BBC:

“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,” Mr Trump was quoted as saying in the New York Magazine profile. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

I liked one of the Voyager arcs in which the Doctor* had spent so much time functioning that his personality began to develop beyond his initial programming. “Please state the nature of – oh, it’s *you* again.”

Similar to what happened to Rimmer on “Red Dwarf”.

*Not ‘the Doctor’.

I showed my husband the Harmony video, because I’m evil and enjoy cackling at his discomfort.

He watched it, blinked a couple of times, shivered, and said, “It’s like somebody slapped a raw chicken. Her cheeks just jiggle.”

I pointed out that the boy-nazis are not satisfied with *just* a sexbot, as she has no womb for housing their white babbies. He looked at me oddly and questioned whether she had any appreciable child-rearing skills. I wonder if men who are in the market for this sort of thing just don’t see women or their work.

@Hambeast – I’m right there with you! I’d love to have a Stepford Wife (TM). I don’t care if it’s sexy, looks like Rosie from the Jetsons, or is built like that adorable robot doggo. If it can wash the stinking dishes, I’m all for it.

Oh that could have worked as a Episode of “Deep Space Nine”. The Holo Sex works in some Quark’s holosweet programs be come self aware.
