Omg I am so depressed and alarmed at this documentary. I knew these robots existed but had no idea how advanced it all is. These horrible men creating their ultimate sex slaves who look and sound so human. Its like watching a horror movie, am I alone in feeling quite sick about this? Sick as in that feeling of dread you get when scared?

It's beyond disgusting.

It's sickening, and terrifying in equal measure.

What channel is it on? There was one on channel 4 a few years ago, just seemed creepy to me

The Stepford Wives was not supposed to be a manual.
Repeat as nauseum for The Handmaids Tale, 1984 et al.

We made porn acceptable in our society. It was only a matter of time before sex robots arrive on the scene, and again we will normalize them

The bloke at the end, talking to the AI doll with speech, "you're awesome, you're just like talking to a real girl!" No, it's not. A real woman (not girl, but I bet that will come in time,) would probably tell you to bugger off and stop being a perv, rather than tell you how sweet you are and ask whether you like to masturbate and let her watch while you jerk off within about 10 minutes of meeting.

It really was depressing.

Really really horrible.

toocool4cats Thu 30-Nov-17 23:39:14

Yes I wanted to burst in the room at the end and laugh in the faces of all those sad Pervey men and shout ' now go and learn how to speak to an actual female you bunch of pricks' .

His doll was a child.

Worse was when one was at a trade fair and had to be taken for repair as it was “molested” repeatedly by customers.
They don’t look very real at all. They look creepy as fuck.

Oh absolutely, totally childlike in a grotesque sinister way. Her speech just feeds into those male fantasies. Oh well let's hope they hurry up with designing the males. I've got a few jobs need doing.......

This programme disturbed me more than I can express. I think how pleased all the men involved were with themselves about their 'amazing achievement' was repulsive. The AI doll on the show looked like she was supposed to be about 18 but the Chinese one definitely looked like it was meant to be younger which creeped me out even more. I genuinely despair of men when I watch things like this.

Kimlek Fri 01-Dec-17 14:22:21

I’m horrified. All that technology wasted on dicks.

TheGoalIsToStayOutOfTheHole Fri 01-Dec-17 14:28:58

I find it all incredibly creepy. Mr brother was on about them the other day and was saying really whats the difference between these and a vibrator and that women need to stop getting so uppity about men having a 'sex toy'. Because yes, its exactly the same hmm

I found the Scottish voice very childlike but saying horrible sexual things, jarring and very disturbing. I also felt very uneasy about these dolls being pushed around in wheel chairs. Just wrong.

OlennasWimple Fri 01-Dec-17 14:41:28

Have you watched Westworld?

NCforthis12345 Fri 01-Dec-17 15:05:10

10 minutes in atm and it is extremely worrying. Eventually as commonplace as porn? I can't even give that idea any thought as it is too disturbing.

NCforthis12345 Fri 01-Dec-17 15:12:35

And the only lady on the team said "I wouldn't have taken on this project if I really thought it was going to eliminate the need for women". Wtf.

Advanced version of the blow up doll. ick.

Pervs who don't appreciate real live women will use the robots. Nice normal men will still want to be with nice normal women. Those pervy men are the ones you'd never have gone near anyway.

That may be the case initially, but the longer technology is around, the more it becomes normalised.

I remember when internet dating sites first appeared...all my friends would say that only losers would use them, now it has become the norm.

Let me explain, I'm in no way comparing internet dating with sex robots. Not at all. I'm just saying that as technology advances, things become seen as normal

Not to mention, how many men would have walked into sex shops years ago to buy porn on videos? Probably not huge numbers, due to the embarrassment/seedy nature of it. Now anyone can access it and it's becoming more widely used.

I had to stop watching after the old guy who moved three dolls in while his wife was away looking after her sick mother and refused to get rid of them when she got back. The poor wife looked so nice, and so downtrodden and resigned. She said thy sleep in the bed with them. Wtaf. I don't even want to think about that - that's when I turned off because it was too depressing.
