SEXY ROBOTS CAN HELP OVERCOME SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION

Date: 2018-06-19



If there is anything you can learn from today's society, it's that everything changes.

The sex-robot-revolution has begun and people are getting off across great distances through motion-sensing toys.

Many experts are predicting that we'll have fully artificial sex partners – robots to be precise – in the next few decades. While these robots are going to primarily be sold for recreational purposes, there are legitimate medical uses for the technology as well. For guys, it will mean that they could provide a path to overcome erectile dysfunction.

Even though there are numerous causes of erectile dysfunction (ED). Some of them are physical – anything that interferes with your body's natural blood flow can be the culprit, like heart disease, diabetes or high cholesterol. Your physical conditions can also hinder your little soldier's ability to stand at attention, with obesity playing a major role. However, many of these cases of ED are down to psychological factors, and that's how scientists think sex robots may come in hand.

Sex robots will be able to help with this by creating a comfortable environment for people to experiment sexually and get feedback without worrying about the pleasure or emotional response of another human being. Convincing a flesh and blood woman to participate in something like that would be a pretty serious test of a relationship, so automating it makes sense, doesn't it? Let's try to imagine how it would work...

One of the most contentious debates in the robot sex world is, is making love to a synthetic object, you know, actually making love or is it just ridiculously complicated masturbation. The potential for sex robots to detect and record stimuli and react to their surroundings makes them a little more useful for the purpose of resolving sexual anxiety.

One of the most common anxieties men have about sex is premature ejaculation. Even though the average lovemaking session is 7.3 minutes and 43% of heterosexual intercourse is over in less than two minutes, people still think that the act has to last for half an hour in multiple positions. And stress makes that time shorter, not longer.

Being able to stimulate the act with a robotic partner can help men understand what position and movements that bring them to climax and avoid or delay them. Building these robots with force feedback mechanisms can allow men to gently ramp up to these triggers and increase their tolerance for them. It is obviously possible to do this with old-fashioned masturbation, but it requires more self-control.

The obvious downside of the treatment methodology is that sex is a two-way street and the only way to learn how to please a partner is through communication. Expecting a sex robot to develop the kind of natural language skills that would let them ask to be pleasured in specific ways is a pretty far off dream. So some dudes might be able to tackle their erectile dysfunction, but they will still have to work on the path to truly great sex.

There is, however, the debate that sex robots will somehow replace real intimacy entirely. If sex robots can provide men with an orgasmic experience tailored to their fantasies using a partner who never says no, what use will they have for real partners? No matter how good simulated sex can be, the real thing is a complex ballet of emotions, hormones, and physicality that science is hard-pressed to duplicate.

Sex robot makers are not looking to create a world where mechanical intimacy replaces the real thing, except for a few dedicated perverts. Instead, what they want is simply to give people another option for sexual pleasure in a way that's healthy and ethical.

The sex robots today are still pretty primitive, just a step-up from inflatable sex dolls with adjustable motorised orifices. There is a lot of money involved in making these things more robust and commercially viable. We wouldn't be terribly surprised if big names on the medical side of things take the tech and go to the FDA with it as a way to make sex accessible for people who have problems either physical or psychological.
