Are Companion Robots: Sex Dolls: the Future of Relationships?

The field of companion robots (sex dolls) has come a long way in the last few year. When most people think of a companion doll they probably think of a plastic blow up doll that teenagers keep under their beds. At one point in time that may have been true but nothing could be further from the truth in 2019.

What is a Companion Doll?

A companion robot doll is a life size doll that is made to look and feel like a real person. Most people refer to them as sex dolls and while they do satisfy those needs, they do a lot more than that now with the advances in AI (Artificial Intelligence). These robots are made now so that you can have actual conversations with them. That is why they are now called companion robots instead of sex dolls.

Calling these robots from Realbotix “sex dolls” is not a accurate description.

You can pick how the doll looks. You can decide what software you want on it. Every aspect of the doll can be picked out. You can pick the dolls personality, accent, color, shape. The options are really endless! While they still seem somewhat unrealistic they are getting more advanced every day. It won’t be long before they seem like a real person.

What Benefits Would Come with a Companion Doll?

Most people think that these dolls would only benefit a person that is not capable of getting a real woman (or man, they make both). That is being a little close minded. If people could open their eyes then they could see that many benefits could come with owning a companion robot. We all have desires as humans. It is not unrealistic to believe that some of these desires could be satisfied by an android. The stigma will lessen over time surely.

These companion dolls are not just for men.

Think about how things have changed over just the last 100 years. We can’t possibly imagine how much things will change over the next 100. One thing that hasn’t changed is that relationships are hard. In fact, they seem to keep getting more complicated. Familial relationships are completely different than they were just 50 years ago. One of the things that always seems to complicate relationships even more is a difference in sexual desires. One person may want sex more then the other. One person might like to do things that the other doesn’t. The list goes on and on. A lot of couples try to solve this problem by having open relationships but that seems to bring up other issues like jealousy.

Sexual Tension Runs Our Lives

Sigmund Freud (the father of modern psychology) believed that all human relationships have an underlying sexual component. Behind our fancy brains we are all still animals. He also believed that these underlying sexual desires caused a lot of friction between people. Sometimes we realize it but other times we are in denial or these desires are completely subconscious. Imagine how much simpler our lives would be if we could completely take the needs of these sexual desires out of all human relationships. Not only could we be actual friends with people of the opposite sex but it would cause us to be less competitive with people of the same sex. We could have real honest friendships.

Why Am I Talking About This?

You may be wondering why I am writing an article about companion robots. I don’t own one and I have no plans of getting one (they are still too expensive for me, I don’t think that my wife would mind too much). I don’t have any financial interests in any company that develops these dolls. The reason that I find them interesting is because I like to think about what things will be like in the future. You may think that it’s crazy but 100 years from now everyone may own one of these companion dolls. It may become a normal present for a 16 year old. If you told me 20 years ago that everyone would be carrying a tiny computer/tv/phone in their pocket I would have called you crazy. Predicting the future is hard!

We like to think that we live in the enlightened time of humanity but that is actually not true. We are very close minded creatures that don’t want to let go of false belief systems. 1000 years from now people will talk about how ridiculous people were in 2019. There may be a time when people don’t have any physical contact with each other. The only options then will be to either kill of sexual desire or use companion robots.

Many Dangers Come With Sex

One thing that we don’t really pay enough attention to is all of the dangers that come with sex. There are many diseases you can catch from someone, some of which are deadly. You won’t have to worry about diseases with a sex doll, assuming you aren’t sharing it with anyone.

I hear horror stories about people getting murdered when going out to meet a date. They meet someone on a dating site. They get all dressed up and excited for their date. When they get there they get kidnapped. I don’t even want to think about what happens to them next. As far as these new sex dolls have come in AI, I don’t think that they possess the skills to kidnap or murder someone.

Robots are the Future

Whether we like it or not, robots are the future. Every day our lives become more entwined with machines. In the future robots of all kinds will become more and more common. It is only natural to believe that this will also include companion robots. A lot of people already use vibrators but we don’t think of that as being strange. These companion dolls are just a more advanced version of that. The main difference being that you can actually interact with these dolls and they are becoming more advanced every day (this advance may cause jealousy in some people). I am willing to bet that in our lifetimes these dolls will become common among people that can afford them. If you think about it, there are already millions of sex toys sold each year. These dolls are just a step up from them.

I like to think that people are getting more open minded as humanity progresses. The first reaction isn’t always the correct one. If you look at the companion doll situation from all sides then you can see the benefits from it. The main problem is probably jealousy. No need to worry about that though. You could never be replaced by a doll. If you can then maybe you should look at your relationship because it must only be about sex. Just to be safe, maybe don’t “play” with the doll in front of your spouse!
