Sex robots and love and sex with them has long since ceased to be science fiction. By around 2050, human-robot marriages will be commonplace. David Levy’s book, published in 2007, has become the inspiration and basis for serious scientific discussion on the subject. The conference of the same name is repeatedly held in virtual form with the presence and interest of international scientific leaders from the fields of psychology, psychotherapy, robotics, sociology and social anthropology.

Like it or not, the digisexual and robosexual community is growing in numbers and the possibilities of technological and mechanical intimacy, which is increasingly replacing the human one, are becoming more and more sophisticated. Professor David Cheok, for example, argues that sex with humans will be as special as the concert experience in the future. We already listen to music vicariously thanks to technology. It will be the same with sexbots. 

David Levy as a promoter of robotics

Robotics promoter David Levy spoke at a conference in Maastricht a few years ago with the conviction that in 2050 it will be possible to have a loving relationship with robots. He also writes openly about his theory in his book Love and robots, or Love and sex with robots. 

However, robots as sex aids entered the market much earlier. Increasingly sophisticated sexbots can be purchased and programmed today. Even now, Levy predicts, scientists are coming up with robots with artificial consciousness and emotions. They are able to communicate, entertain you or even profess their love for you.

Robots with artificial consciousness and emotions

Although conversation is the biggest nut for robot makers, they are doing very well. Humans expect their ideal life partner to talk to them about topics that interest them, have a similar sense of humor, and become a suitable conversational partner. 

Levy himself was convinced that by 2050 at the latest, these robots would be on the production lines. They will be our companions and conversation partners, more enjoyable to talk to than talking to another human. 

David Levy’s prediction comes true

Robots already have emotions, personality and consciousness, as Levy predicted. They can talk to you and make you laugh. They can tell you they love you as surely as they mean it. It takes something completely different to have a loving relationship, and there are many more things that are important. The hardest of all, according to the author of the book, is the conversation. One wants a partner with similar interests who talks to them in a way that is flattering. And as Levy reasoned then, so do the creators of sex robots today.

Love and faith with sexbots

According to a British expert named Dylan Evans, the belief that love is neither unconditional nor infinite is absolutely crucial to the feeling of love. But robots can’t choose you or reject you. This, according to this author, will bore people and human beings will be very cruel to this defenseless partner like a robot. 

The difficulty of establishing an interpersonal relationship

Whether we want to accept it or not, with the evolution of humanity and its emancipation, it is becoming increasingly difficult to establish interpersonal relationships. For men, sexuality is and always has been more important than for women, although this is probably not always the case. 

Women also no longer want to be just mothers looking after children and the family, wives subservient to men, maids doing all the housework and mistresses constantly fulfilling men’s sexual fantasies. 

On the contrary, they lack the harmony and the ability of men to love not only their bodies but also their souls. Men, on the other hand, fulfill their sexual desires in robots and enjoy their boundless devotion. 

An individualized and lonely society

David Levy, author of Love and Sex with Robots, believes that there are already millions of people who find it difficult or impossible to have a good interpersonal relationship, as he put it to New Scientist magazine. 

And for those who are loving and sexually capable, robots open up whole new horizons. Many people could be happier with them than they are today. In an individualized society, wounded and lonely people are on the rise, and many suffer unbearably. 

As a humanitarian measure, therefore, a partnership with a robotic lady of popular celebrity appearance and coveted intelligence is easy to imagine. Women, too, will find something to like. And the advocates of the traditional family will be remembered with smiles and nostalgia in the future.

Books about robots not only for leisure

  • Cybernetics is the science that deals with the transmission of information in living organisms and in man-made machines. The term was originally coined by mathematician Norbert Wiener. In 1948 he published the book Cybernetics or Control and Communication in Organisms and Machines. 
  • Czech Karel Čapek first used the word “robot” in a 1920 play called R.U.R. – Rossum’s Universal Robots. The name was suggested by his brother Josef and replaced Karel’s term “lab”. 
  • The view of robots was greatly influenced by Isaac Asimov in his iconic short story collection I, Robot. His Three Laws of Robotics are widely quoted and further elaborated. He published the stories in magazines between 1940 and 1950. Later he created a frame story for them and published them in one volume.
  • Asimov has been followed by writer Mickey Zucker Reichert, who is working on a three-part prequel to I, Robot and has already published I, Robot: Protect and I, Robot: Listen
  • Philip K. Dick in his novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Offers a version of the future where humanoid robots are illegal on Earth. Androids lose the ability to show emotion and become cold-blooded killers. The book, which was later made into a film by Ridley Scott under the title Blade Runner, deals with the search for humanity in robots and a certain machismo in humans. 
  • Daniel H. Wilson introduced the motif of war against a mechanized enemy, and in his novel Robocalypse he shows that froggy arguments over differences in skin color, religion, and worldview must be set aside or the robots will revolt.
  • Paolo Bacigalupi’s novel The Girl on the Sprout presents the new humans in the form of an artificially created bio-machine used for work, including the satisfaction of sexual lust, with warnings of irreversible environmental damage and social overlap.
  • Douglas Adams introduces androids with wit and humour in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series with the perpetually depressed robot Marvin.
