Five Years ‘Til Sex With Robots

David Levy, the author of Love and Sex with Robots went on The Colbert Report recently to talk about the book, which people have been discussing non-stop since its publication in November. While the audience and Colbert laughed hysterically, David was completely serious, saying that we will be having sex with robots in five years and be capable of falling in love with them in 40. Not only will these robots be able to simulate humans well enough to get us to fall in love with them, but they’ll also be better in bed. Unlike humans with our handful of lovers from which we draw experience, the robots will be programmed with all of the information and tricks from all of the books ever written about sex. David says this is one of the major problems he sees, “…in particular with men having some sort of sexual anxiety because If they realize their woman has had the most fantastic sex of her life with a robot, guy might think, ‘I wonder if I can perform that well.’” But women will have something to worry about as well, because men will be able to program their robots to want to have sex with them. And at only a couple hundred dollars by mid century, a robot could be a better investment than a wife. [Comedy Central]
