A new sexual orientation, digisexuality, is likely to emerge in the near future. The conducted research proves that the era of immersion in digital sex has already come. And the development in this field is rapid, more and more users will begin to use them, resulting in a whole type of so-called digisexuals for whom sex won’t be possible without digital technologies. At the same time, such sex-robots will be able to fully meet those sex needs which are not acceptable for most people.
There is no doubt that full-fledged sex androids are on the way. People will build close ties with their robot partners and will come to the use of robots as the main method of sexual practice. Researchers have identified two waves of digital sexuality. The first is when technology can be used to meet sexual needs with other people. For these purposes, they used both instant messengers, online games of the video call program, and technologies specifically designed for sex at a distance. We have already experienced the first wave, now it is time for the second wave associated with robots. At the same time, researchers even predict the appearance of animal robots for people who are attracted to animals.
Among the problems that digitally sexual people would face, the main highlighted problem a sense of guilt and shame for their addiction, deterioration of relations with a human partner to the point of separation or divorce, and a decrease in the number of sexual relations with other people. In addition, robots built for sex are an expensive pleasure that can leave a digisexual in debt.
The first wave of digital sexuality, according to scientists, began to take shape as early as the 70s, when people began to have opportunities to transmit emotions and tactile sensations at a distance. The second wave is starting now, and in it, a living partner of both flesh and blood is generally not necessary.
Over the past four years, the number of people who admit different from platonic relationships with the robot has doubled and now stands at 17%. If it goes on like this, in a matter of decades, all the diversity now offered by Facebook will be reduced to just one point. Besides digital sexuality, no other form of sexuality will remain. Because a robot can be anything.
Already, the humanoid robot Sophia declares its readiness to start a family and even plans to name the daughter in the honor of herself. Therefore, living women have no choice but to expand the production of super-wise, understanding and super-genial male robots. And here the main thing will be to resist the temptation of the living women themselves. After all, the robot-man does not drink, does not scatter socks around the house and does not cheat. But if the temptation to resist does not come out – it is scary to even think about the speed with which evolution will proceed.
