A Pillow For Lonely And Depressed People


If I were in the business of selling pillows that mold, adjust, and even “breathe” in tune with the person cuddling them, I think I would go for an upbeat message. “Having a pillow that is practically lifelike in its response is awesome and neato! Go out and get one and your life will instantly ROCK!” I would do this because it’s likely that anyone who would buy a pillow that has real doll-like robotic characteristics is probably a sad and lonely human being, and I would want them to feel good about their purchase. (Keep in mind, I am writing this from the perspective of an evil business person, not a compassionate human being.) However, the designer behind the Funktiontide pillow clearly feels the opposite.

Recession Blues Hit The Sex Doll Business

By now, you’ve probably heard of RealDolls. They’re those lifelike, anatomically correct silicone sex dolls that costs thousands of dollars. They’ve appeared in movies (“Lars and the Real Girl”), on TV (Howard Stern, natch), and in books (Still Lovers). These days, though, it seems the love doll industry is taking a hit. In these tough economic times, not every guy who longs for a synthetic lover with a fully articulated internal armature has the means to buy one. Sniff. The man who dreamed of spending $6,499 on a life partner with a choice of vagina attachments may be S.O.L. Thankfully, the folks at RealDoll.com are offering some unique deals. “Order a RealDoll, RealDoll2 or Male RealDoll2 and get a FREE FACE!!” the website advertises. “Order a Female Flat Back Torso get the Head Kit FREE!” You know, this 21st century depression might not be such a bad thing if it means free faces and head kits for lonely guys looking for women with removable visages.

The Girl Below Is Actually An Android Sex Doll

Robots these days can perform surgeries, walk the runway, and even teach a class of students. And now there’s a robot that can … have sex. A German company called First Androids has created the world’s most advanced sex doll. Her name is Andy (guess men are really into women with guy’s names, à la Joey Potter?) and she costs $3820. Her face and body are crazy realistic and she appears to have hair and eyebrows (and, uh, pubes) that look pretty convincing. She also has a “heavy breathing” function and an actual G-spot. So far, First Androids has received four million orders for the sex ‘bots, which kind of shocked me at first. But then I remembered that there are guys out there (cough, Eliot Spitzer) who spend $3820 a month on hookers and it all made sense. Guess the age of robot prostitutes isn’t so far off?

When Robots Kiss

In this strange video, two robots, their internal workings exposed, lean in for a kiss. Is this the most romantic thing since Romeo and Juliet or what? OK, maybe not. Keep reading »

Robot Prostitutes May Be The Tourist Attraction Of The Future

These days, there are robots to do everything. Build cars. Vacuum floors. They’re even taking the place of fashion models on the runway. What’s next? According to one futurologist, robot prostitutes may be appearing on the horizon in the not-too-distant future. Tourism futurologist Dr. Ian Yeoman predicts that robot call girls could play a part in the future of tourism. Rather than seeking out the great outdoors, travelers will pursue manufactured experiences. They’ll be served drinks by robot bartenders, stay in rooms that change colors (perhaps according to one’s mood?), and room services will include robot sex workers that give tourists happy endings. What’s the appeal of sex with an android? For one thing, robot sex partners would be guaranteed disease-free. But what could replace the human touch? A fembot, apparently. [Belfast Telegraph]

Weird Machine Discovers The Number One Reason Why Condoms Break

Me? I don’t have a subscription to Contraception, the journal, but somebody out there must. Apparently, a trio of researchers set about studying the durability of condoms. After all, no one wants a condom that breaks, right? That’s so not sexy. Also? Babies. But how do you test a condom? Live models in the lab can be so, er, sticky. Instead, the team used a contraception testing mechanism called a “laboratory coital model.” Wow. That is hot! It’s what you see pictured here. Want to know why condoms break? Find out what the mecha-wang revealed after the jump. Keep reading »
