The Future Of Marriage Gets A Lift

Coming Soon:
What every man needs.
That special life partner who doesn't whine for attention, never gets headaches or mood swings, won't spend your money, and can still keep quiet during a Bears game.

Not sure why this is such a suprise to so many people... Sex sells, and in many cases, drives innovation.

This is simply the logical end to numereous 17 year old males who hack away in the basement all day long, and don't know how to interact with a human in a conversation.
And since those are the smart people, those needs get fulfilled faster then, say, the viagra gramps need delivered to him.

I suppose that it's nothing new. Just another way for man to remain very small and insignificant while pretending to meet his needs.

Yeah, it's the "perfect" mate...until one finds out that the software it runs on has, ahem, a few bugs, and the whole deal ends up like that court case KingDavid's been writing about where a drunken house guest threw the eggs in the trash--and that while Da Bears are thrashing the Pack to boot!

Doubt it? Come on, not EVERYBODY has a mac! :^)

brian: now that is scary. and iilustrates palm boy's point as well.

guess we'll just have to stick to automatic beer serving refrigerator and the no-hands remote control and forego the whole wife idea.

If these things work, they just trap all the people they "help" into a lack of personal healing/growth, instead of helping them develop into fully functioning people. I am not impressed.

A robot that filled the same "need" for people who want an apparent emotional fulfillment rather than an apparent sexual fulfillment would be equally as revolting. In case anyone thinks I am being all sex-is-evil.

Sometimes I wonder what is keeping us from jumping off a collective bridge, humanity's capacity for destruction and separation has increased so much because of the "savior" technology.

I noticed the article left out the possibility of couples using a sex robot if they want to explore a 3-way without having to worry about the emotional baggage of the third party.

A hot girl with an "off" switch?

Hmmmmmm....

But - still a little too freaky-freaky. And not as likely to keep frustrated men out of clock towers as they think, but a nice try...
