Sex Robots in Less than Ten Years

It's not going to be too long before sex dolls that are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing become prevalent in society (see the video below from nine and a half months ago).  Despite being an interesting piece, those TV commentators clearly are speaking as the corporate talking heads that they are, and they don't divulge how this is a natural creation and nothing to be ashamed of.  In fact, it's a shame the way that they belittle this technological progress as nothing more than the work of horny Japanese nerds.  Don't they know that all men are horny?

It begs the question, though, will more husbands and wives get in, or stay out of, trouble because of the rise of these erotic terminators?  For the record, I believe the number of dissatisfied couples will decrease.  First of all, sexual angst will plummet due not only to sheer availability, but also because of the fact that a person will be able to choose the sexual partner of his or her liking.  Size, shape, color, and sound will all play a factor.

The last thing that I think about, however, are those intangibles.  Those factors that scientists won't yet be able to incorporate into their design -- things like pheromones, odor, and the timing of a look or a blush.  The novelty of the human experience can be extremely powerful.  Those imperfections have the possibilities for huge turn-ons, too.  Does she not smell like roses because she's spent the day at the office...and do you like that?  Are his hands sweaty from nerves because he likes you so much?  Did she forget to take those is-it-cold-in-here-or-are-you-just-happy-to-see-me Band-Aids off her nipples before she disrobed?  Are his body hair and that thin layer of fat irresistibly soft and comforting in the dead of winter?  These are all factors that you would very possibly only find endearing in a real human being and not in a cyborg.  For that reason, I doubt that the male-female relationship will be supplanted by the human-cyborg relationship any time soon.  Our DNA is too strong-willed for that.  Nevertheless, the 2020s are going to be a very interesting time.
