OK, I'm starting to feel afraidPage 1 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
Some guy in Hong Kong has built himself a lifelike robot that looks so much like actress Scarlett Johansson, it's eerie. Then I did some more googling and found out they've built a female robot in China named Jia Jia, and get this, she can actually sass back at you! And then there was the blonde robot built a couple of years ago by American artist Jordan Wolfson.

Ok, fun's fun... I mean, we can crack all the jokes we want about pimply nerds playing with computers in mommy's basement (angry wimps are funny!), but I'm afraid one of these guys who builds his next gf out of parts from Radio Shack is going to have dollar signs in his eyes. Guess what will happen then.

Yeah, it's not easy to find real men now... but it's going to be impossible if real men start buying fake women. It scares me a little, but at the same time it kind of makes me angry. I don't know of any women building male-bots.

Whaddya do... :-(

OP ...
I don't know of any women building 'male-bots".

Isn't that commonly known as an HHV (hand held vibrator)?

Why would we want to build one when they're so easily found in most any department store or even grocery store? The local drug stores carry them too. (No longer necessary to go to the local adult book store.)

Ummm....you'll have to sell your Lexus and get a job?

Yep, I already put my order in for the Kim Kardashian advanced model!

You seem to have a very poor opinion of all men. Don't you realize that any man who would prefer a robot to a real woman, would think of YOU as a live, battery-free robot too? Is that the mate you want?

Or do you REALLY think that all we men want is a THING to screw around with? That attitude and thought will do more to prevent you from finding someone than anything else will.

No worries. Radio Shack is going out of business.

hey, they make Ken Dolls, too, only $5,999

https://secure.realdoll.com/

Its been going on for some time, and since they don't eat, there's no post about who pays. But before this, it was the dream of virtual sex, just clean up the electronics when done. I don't know if there's a Heath Kit build it at home for sale....

Ida know about her dumping me for a bigger Wang, but i'd worry about shorting her out. Or worse, she goes online and picks up some virus to pass on to me. Yech.

I will say, I wouldn't mind the gun and sword collection, b/c I like mechanical things and my father diddled around in blacksmithing for a while. but if he got the lifesize blowup out of his bedroom when a lady came over to visit his bedroom, he might just end up one day with that heir he wants...

inheritance of our worldly goods is an issue, however. As anyone can see from my photo, i'm heirless.

I don't bother to worry about men who want a robot woman, they aren't hurting me in anyway.

Does the OP happen to have a site where we can go and order some of these companions????

I mean, like, seriously.

As long as I don't hear any talking(in any language) that is.

I don't know if it's categorized as a comedy but it sure provided a few good laughs

Do they offer monthly installments? Is there a money back guarantee if not satisfied?

How do you maintain her working parts? Gives new meaning to "lube her up".

Do they offer a ebony/mahogany skinned model?

I read where Uber plans to eliminate drivers as soon as self driving cars become viable.

This development would play havoc on prostitution. The post above mine brought this to mind. You couldn't even make it illegal; if you can rent a car or a lawnmower, then you can rent a fembot. Pimps won't be sleazy guys hanging out at the Transit Authority, they'll be guys with shops and work benches wiping the grease from their hands as they fill out the rental agreement.

I was thinking this could give you something to 'do', on a long journey, if you didn't have to drive...?

Pimps won't be sleazy guys hanging out at the Transit Authority,

That's a bit... erm... never mind.

Thanks for that image. Even though I know it's just a machine, I'm still having trouble not-imagining it's posture during this procedure, or the look on it's face....


as they fill out the rental agreement.

Can't I just swipe my card somewhere?

What I want to know is; will I still need a separate robot-hoover?

Problem is Replicants cost serious coin.. since many squeeze a nickel so hard the beaver screams when it comes to buying a coffee for a date, I imagine they are out of many dudes price point.
I'd love to have robots. And a dragon. Prolly get a dragon first

A robot-hoover? You can clean one of the blow-up dolls with some sort of "hoover"?

Don't you just sort of ... hose her down every once in a while ... making sure to pay special attention to mouth, vagina, and anus ... ?

lmao...That's where my mind went to too...cleaning...smirk.

Well....I hate to tell you OP...they have had life like dolls around for a while now...the blow ups are cheap and old.
I watched a documentary on these and yes....they are not cheap.
Some men drive around with them...name them and dress them, talk to them, take them on vacation.....totally bizarre.
Worried? Not too much....lol.

Nah! Not a blow-up doll, a "Roboshag" ™.

Yeah.... And that's exactly why she divorced me.


Oooh.....Ms. Cotter.....

Yeah, I did.
I meant exactly that.
None taken.

I was thinking that, instead of just putting "her" away into a cupboard, or somewhere, "afterwards", (you know, when I've finished the mandatory cuddling of her so she doesn't feel "used" etc etc) maybe "she" could clean-up a bit too, and/or maybe iron a few shirts and stuff.?
Not much use if she can only do one thing....

Although, I suppose it might be somewhere to push the corners of my tea-towels, to keep them tidy.

Just trying to "think outside the box" here...
Goodnight.
