Quoting: ‘Technology is evolving quickly. The gaming industry and virtual reality are reaching new levels of innovation. Developments in artificial intelligence are advancing and robots are being created. Meanwhile, the porn industry is at its highest peak in production. Due to the advent of the Internet, adult entertainment has become a highly competitive market with an ever-increasing need to produce more extreme visuals to draw in viewers. As porn becomes saturated and consumers become increasingly bored and desensitised, pornographers are searching for new ways to differentiate their products from others.
It is the collision of such technological developments, social conditions and cultural trends that have resulted in the creation of sex robots. Where there is demand, there will be supply. Where there is curiosity, there will be creation. But just because “we can” doesn’t necessarily mean “we should”.’
