More Creepy Sex

Even Robot Sex Has It's Down Side

I was yanked out of patrol and worked street prostitution details for a little while back in the 80's. The PD needed "fresh blood" every few months or so to go after the hookers who were at times out of control downtown. They stopped cars and propositioned male drivers even if their wives were in the front seat with them.

The girls were mostly pitiful and not too bright, some were vicious; one in particular was psychotic, bonkers - a screaming loony named Carmen. Of course that was the one I had a run in with on a busy Friday night in the middle of traffic - no gun, no badge (the whores would check you for them), the walkie-talkie left in the car, a half naked crazy whore and a carload of football players ... story some other time maybe.

But technology changes things. And of course it now seems on the brink of changing the way men rent a woman for pleasure.
It’s 2020, and Roger, a recent divorcĂ© from New York, decides to pay for some female company. So he turns on his computer, connects a robotic vagina to it and starts having sex with Cinnamon, a college student in Sydney with a computer and a remotely controlled robotic penis.

Creeped out yet? Welcome to the future of prostitution.
If you're a guy, the way it works is like this.
  1. You rent/buy a USB device that slips over your male member and then plug it into your computer/tablet/smart phone while working behind the counter at McDonald's, driving a school bus or babysitting your grandchildren. 
  2. You contact a virtual prostitute over the interwet tubes.
  3. It could be a real woman - or guy -  or neither - you won't know, even with a webcam.
  4. The prostitute/program is interfaced with a device that reproduces the action of a vagina, mouth, chicken or lawn mower when a penis is inserted into it.
  5. Enter your credit card number and prepare to have your greased-up, latex world rocked.
In a completely immersive virtual reality environment you could pay to find yourself in an airplane over the Pacific doing Amelia Earhart, under the desk of the Oval Office channeling Monica or mid-field of the 1936 Berlin Olympic Stadium wearing a tutu and sniffing Jesse Owens' track shoes.

Your dollar, your fantasy.
To be sure, technology alone is not going to remove crime or exploitation from the sex work equation. So while technology can make a difference, some experts say, it depends on the position of the sex worker to begin with. “The Internet is still out of reach for the most vulnerable, those who work on the streets,” says Samantha Majic, an assistant political science professor at the City University of New York who specializes in the politics of sex work. So, less than a democratizing tool, virtual sex may just evolve as the guilty pleasure of lonely, wealthy, sci-fi lovers. Working online also has its own risks. It can make it harder to detect abusive clients or undercover cops and isolate workers who would otherwise naturally share tips and advice.
Every twisted desire that the human mind can dredge up will be available in the comfort of your livingroom with a WiFi whore.

At least you won't find out that crazy Carmen is double jointed as she slams her knee into your balls.

Story here.
H/T Drudge.

I exited the crazy train long ago. As boring as some men think of it, or infuriating, either a wife or nothing... uhrm... mostly. Celibacy is not an easy undertaking, mind you. I think even the silver chastity ring has caused an itch all by itself. Seriously. Gah!

After reading that touch sensations might be able to be transmitted, I saw this coming. Sad. I don't even do porn now. Cheesecake calendar, though right beside a calendar of classical paintings of Mary (of the holy sort). Limits.

It's funny that you used Jeri Ryan to illustrate your point, since her former-Senator husband used to fly her down to creepy Louisiana sex clubs to spice up their marriage.

WoFat said...

I was once invited to work Vice. My answer was NO.

Doom - we had cops, pastors, district attorneys, teachers, priests ... you name it get caught in john details. Was never tempted to travel down that road.

sig94 said...

Katy - that was just a random choice of photo I used to create that meme. Until you mentioned it I forgot all about her screwball husband.

Really, a beautiful wife like Ms. Ryan and he wants to introduce that sick crap into the marriage. But then again, a lot of politicians seem to go for a high risk life style, no?

sig94 said...

WoFat - it wasn't for me either. As an evidence technician/crime scene guy I photographed the autopsy of one of the prostitutes I had arrested. She and her sister were both in the "trade" and they were both a real PITA. Her pimp beat her to death and we found her body in a dumpster downtown.

She was a rather unpleasant person, but she didn't deserve that. During the investigation I found out a few things about her life. I really felt sorry for her, such a messed up girl. No one ever tried to take care of her throughout her short life.

So what you're saying is that even a fat, ugly bastard like me can "do" a super model...and I have technology to thank for it.

sig94 said...

LL - I really don't know if "do" is the word for it. It's more like a video arcade thing. Remember the Woody Allen movie "Sleeper?"

Gorges Smythe said...

The only thing creepier than robotic sex would be for the government to try to reulate it.

LL said...

I'm sure that if somebody builds it, the government will tax it.

sig94 said...

Gorges - I'm tying to think up a good acronym for that tax.

You find yourself looking, every now and then, at the body of some cute kitten who had changed from Miss Small Town Cheerleader to the Hoe Next Doe in less than a year. And it often starts out as a "fun adventure" in the French Quarter.

sig94 said...

WoFat - nowadays it doesn't seem to take long. The corrupt popular culture encourages it. They are now sex workers instead of whores.

Sex workers: Depends on how much you pay them, how much they work.
