Amsterdam’s Sex Robots of the Future

by Amsterdam.com
​According to researchers, Amsterdam’s Red light District will be staffed by robotic prostitutes by the year 2050 and the sex industry will become a normal respectable business.

A duo of researchers from the rather sedate sounding Victoria Management School in Wellington, New Zealand set their sights on Amsterdam’s infamous Red Light District in an effort to predict the future of the sex industry as described in their recently published and slightly unusual research paper titled “Robots, Men and Sex Tourism.” Ian Yeoman and Michelle Mars imagine a future in Amsterdam in the year 2050 where visitors to the Red Light District will no longer go there to meet up with young women prostitutes. Instead, clients at the brothels of the future will be introduced to robot sex workers.

Although robot sex workers have been part of science fiction for decades, Yeoman and Mars predict that the production and use of ultra-realistic robotic pleasure machines in the future will eventually stop the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and put an end to the human trafficking now associated with the sex trade. The use of machines instead of humans could also provide the ambitious young men of the future with guilt free sexual experiences, and since no real women will be exploited in the sex trade of tomorrow, the researcher duo believes that the whole prostitution industry could take on a new level of respectability and brothels will become normal businesses and regularly rated and reviewed in the tourist guidebooks of the time.

In their paper, the researchers focus on Amsterdam’s Red Light District and imagine that popular brothels will be staffed by scantily clad robot women in exotic lingerie’ who will charge their clients about $10,000 each (rate adjusted to accommodate future inflation) to enter for an all-inclusive brothel experience that will range from lap dancing to full intercourse. The brothels of the future won’t just be servicing male clients only. Yeoman and Mars predict the ultra-realistic female robots will represent a range of both gods and goddesses of different ethnicities, body shapes, ages, languages and sexual features.

The researcher’s vision of the future sex industry in Amsterdam evolved into a robotic situation where the android humans are made of bacteria resistant fiber that prevents sexually transmitted diseases being transferred between customers as a solution to a predicted rise in sexually transmitted diseases which by 2050 have mutated into drug-resistant killers. In their unique look at Amsterdam’s future, the researchers say robotic sex workers will transform the sex industry and put a halt to all health and human trafficking problems.
Yeoman and Mars say that the only social issue that could arise might be the resistance from real human sex workers who would not be able to compete with the robots in terms of price and quality, and would eventually have to retire from the industry altogether. Although the research team adds that the brothel clients of the future will feel guilt free because they did not have sex with a real person and they don't have to lie to their human partners, it is hard to imagine that human emotions will also change drastically in just 40 years and that some feelings of infidelity will not remain to be dealt with after the fact.
