People of Massachusetts to be Having Sex With Robots by 2012
MSNBC is running a report on the impending likelihood of legalized marital relations with robots. They have word from a leading researcher at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, Dr. Levy, who seems to think peeps will be getting freaky with their robots by 2012, with marriage following by 2050.
I know I've already posted on this, but I refuse to sit idly by without milking the "sex with robots" meme for everything it's worth.
Specifically, I'm skeptical about the 2012 date cited above. I'm willing to bet there are roboticists getting amorous with their creations right now -- for research purposes, of course.
And maybe it's just me, but no one seems to have commented on the potential sexbots might have on population growth. If these things are as good as techno-pundits anticipate, they may well prove to be the ultimate contraceptive (unless we're seduced by a lusty new version of Second Life before androids have time to catch on, which is probably the more likely scenario).
