Experts are claiming that robot sex workers will help change the face of the sex work industry.
According to a paper, amazingly published in an academic journal, Futures- red-light districts will be transformed by 2050 with the introduction of sex robot brothels.
Two scientists, Ian Yeoman and Michelle Mars have undertaken this imagination and painted the picture for a sex robot brothel in 2050, saying that android sex workers will help stamp out people trafficking and the spread of sexual diseases.
Ian Yeoman is a scientist specialized in futurology, and Michelle Mars, a sexologist at the University of Wellington and together they authored a paper entitled “Robots, Men and Sex Tourism”.
In the paper, they imagine an Amsterdam brothel in 2050, basing their imaginations and projections on Yub-Yum, formerly one of Amsterdam’s most exclusive brothels before it closed down in 2008. The paper reads;
“Yub-Yum is modern and gleaming with about 100 scantily clad blondes and brunettes parading around in exotic G-strings and lingerie. Entry costs $10,000 for an all inclusive service. The club offers a full range of sexual services from massages, lap dancing and intercourse in plush surroundings. The Yub-Yum is a unique bordello licensed by the city council, staffed not by humans but by androids.”
The paper also supposes to paint a picture of how sex robot brothels come about, laying the need at the feet of a spike in human trafficking in the sex industry in the 2040s.
They also ascribe it to a growing problem with incurable Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), particularly HIV, which they say will mutate and become resistant to vaccines.
Futuristic Yub-Yum will therefore come as a solution, providing robotic sex workers of all ethnicities, body shapes, ages, languages and sexual features. The paper also discloses that;
“All androids are made of bacteria resistant fiber and are flushed for human fluids, therefore guaranteeing no Sexual Transmitted Diseases are transferred between consumers.”
However, according to Yeoman and Mars, while the sex robot brothels will help ‘the sex industry alleviate all health and human trafficking problems’, human sex workers will be put out of business, unable to compete on price and quality of service.
