Some say sex with inanimate dolls fashioned after children should be illegal, and others say people should be able to do anything they want with what are essentially toys. But as sex dolls become more realistic, controversy is increasing. The topic is going to get very serious, very soon.
The following video from RT News delves into the question of sex with these dolls should be a crime or simply a “thought crime.”
Guest: First of all, remember that if there is a way for people to object to this because of the subject matter of sex they will do it. That’s number one, but number two–let’s get down to brass tacks here. What’s interesting is that, let’s assume, that somebody decides one day–and I don’t know why, but this is what you have to understand–somebody decides to make a lifelike child sex robot or animal robot or goat or barn owl or whatever. You know that somebody’s going to say wait a minute you can’t do that–sex in those particular situations is illegal and for good reasons. And you say, but they aren’t real, this really this isn’t a child, God forbid, they can’t, but let’s just for the sake of argument say this isn’t a child, this isn’t a goat, this is a robot. Yes, but you were thinking about it. And that is the problem–it’s the thought police, it’s the thought police.
Host: Wait, how are we thinking it’s a crime?
Guest: Because what they’re going to do is: when you present them with the fact that no– you know how they say no animals were harmed in this– if you say no real humans were involved, this is a robot, it’s not real, they’re going to be so offended and bothered that somebody is buying, let’s say, an underage robot which makes no sense, but that’s for the sake of argument. You’re going to say this wasn’t real. What they will be trying to do is then, therefore, stop you from what you’re thinking, because what you’re thinking is being manifested in this. The law says no children or animals and that’s fine, but this is going to bother people because it’s the fact that all of a sudden the stories will say all of these, god forbid, underage robots are being sold or what have you. It will bother people. People will not be able to sit there and understand as you do that this is harmless. It might be troublesome, and it might be psychiatrically piquant, maybe somebody might want to consider talking about somebody, you know, this sure and somebody special. But this is not real. And what’s happening is that you then get to the issue of what happens when you have more and more people distancing themselves from human intimacy, what happens when you start having more and more people who would opt for a humanoid than a human? And let me get real conspiracy theory tinfoil hatty–let’s assume some evil deep stater from some think tank said we’re going to enter depopulation or introduce a vector of depopulation by making sex among humans distasteful and preferable, or less preferable, to this machine. People will extinguish themselves as they opt for this.
Host: But going back to this legal aspect, though, if you put on your lawyer hat and your crystal ball, how does somebody legislate what types of robots can be produced, I mean, or in this case dolls?
Guest: There was a while back where the Supreme Court eventually struck it down, but there was an attempt to fashion a federal statute which would make it illegal for you through CGI or through photoshopping or computer whatever, to give the appearance that a child or an underaged person was used in something. It went so far that looks like Lolita in the Bible and Romeo and Juliet would have been subsumed under this extremely overbroad statute. What happens is that people are going to find out that instead of us celebrating the fact that maybe these individuals, instead of preying on human beings and animals, are instead spending $4,500 or ten thousand dollars, whatever, for for the stuff. It won’t be enough–there are people, as you know, who don’t like the fact that you’re even doing this, thinking it, because it’s your thought that in essence is where they are after.
Host: They’re going to be people that are going to argue this moral thing that we were talking about just a few weeks ago. But you know there are also people that have argued, what’s the difference between these dolls and, you know, for years and years and years that women have been able to purchase motorized toys of their own. How does any different?
Guest: Absolutely, there is no difference. It becomes almost a question of your creativity in finding an objection. Oh, you’re right about this, I mean let’s face it, but let’s go a step further. Eventually, somebody is going to say, okay we’re going to sell these devices not as sex toys but as just dolls and what you do with them is up to you. Look, this is happening right now, this is happening, and artificial intelligence… Let me leave you with this one: the artificial intelligence goal is to figure you out and–I’m risking sounding sexist, but this applies to men or women–but let me just say this: the AI robot playing games, playing hard-to-get, making you jealous knowing your hot spots, knowing what bothers you, knowing, you know, just figuring out you and driving you crazy. Because there’s something because once it figures out the differential of power it will figure you out and that’s it.
