First of all, the fact that sex tourism even exists depresses the hell out of me. I'll take a beach and a tropical drink over a prostitute aaaaaaany day. But that's just me, and I'm not a big ball of sadness, desperate to get his dangle-down played with. Enter robotic prostitutes, the alleged future of sexual tourism.
The futuristic scenario of sex tourism suggests android prostitutes will reign supreme, eliminating the risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections in an industry free from sex slavery.
Their paper: Robots, Men And Sex Tourism, published in the journal Futures, imagines a sex club in Amsterdam named Yub-Yum.
Sexual tourists will pay about 10,000 Euro ($12,672) [GW's note: *spitting coffee* $12,000 -- ARE YOU INSANE?!] for an all-inclusive service from massages and lap dances to intercourse from the scantily-clad sexbots parading around.
The androids would be made of bacteria resistant fibre and would be flushed for human fluids, therefore guaranteeing no STIs are transferred between consumers.
Clients could feel guilt free as they actually have not had sex with a real person and would not have to lie to their partner.
$12,000 for service?! Nobody's gonna pay that except robot fetishists AND THEY SHOULD ALL BE ROUNDED UP AND JAILED ANYWAYS. Also, LOLOL @ "clients would not have to lie to their partner".
Hey honey, I'm home! Oh, and I had sex with a robot. No big dealio -- not a real person.
"GET THE F*** OUT OR DIE."
Thanks to Cy and blaqk_panda, who're convinced the researchers didn't think this whole thing through considering robots can still carry viruses. Nobody wants their pecker blue-screening!
