Sex Robots Could Be A Huge Threat To Relationships

Finding an absolute perfect sexual partner in another human being is next to impossible. Even if the person you choose to share yourself with does everything just the right way, there's still likely room for improvement. Bedroom issues can lead to sexual frustration that bleed into other areas of relationships. Sexbots could eliminate that frustration altogether and leave you perfectly satisfied every time.

Sexbot popularity continues to rise as they get better with technology swiftly advancing. Some scientists believe that sex between robots and humans will be better than sex with another human. Joel Snell, an expert in robots from Kirkwood College in Iowa, told the Daily Star, "Robotic sex may become addictive. Sexbots would always be available and could never say no, so addictions would be easy to feed.”

That's completely understandable, but sex is one thing. Why do scientists foresee robots taking over relationships?  So much so that marriages between humans and robots are predicted to be a reality as soon as 2050. Snell also said, “Because they would be programmable, sexbots would meet each individual user’s needs.” As if we don't already have an issue with tolerance as a society.

Unlike humans, who have a personality and feelings of their own that need to be fulfilled to maintain a happy relationship, robot relationships are one sided and cater specifically to the owner's requirements. That's not what relationships are supposed to be about.

The aspect that potentially makes robots ideal companions in every area of life is also the reason they are no so great for society. While having robot companionship sounds like a good idea, it can have negative influences on your personal life. Users could be so satisfied from interactions with sex robots that they begin to feel as if they don’t need or desire real human interaction. Over time they could lead to increased isolation and cause emotional detachment from other human beings. Is that what we have to look forward to?
