‘Frigid’ Setting Allows Life-Like Robotic Sex Doll To Simulate Rape

in Life/WTF by

There is a new sex robot with a “frigid” setting that allows men to simulate rape. It resists the man’s advances. The rape culture implications aside, this is a big ethical problem. Since the robot can’t consent, is that rape?

When faced with this argument, the creators say:

“Is it ethically dubious to force my toaster to make my toast?”

The website also says:

“If women can have a vibrator, why can’t men have a Roxxxy? Having a sex robot is just another ‘aid’ that allows both women and men to make their dreams become reality.”

Allowing men to rape these robots just normalises the act. We should be doing more to prevent it. You can even have a doll custom made to look similar to a person as if this wasn’t sick enough. The website boasts:

“We can, however, use photographs of a person of your choice to select a face structure as similar as possible from our line of 16 standard female faces. We have done this with good success in the past.” 

This is just a weird concept in general. Sex dolls are weird enough, but simulating rape is just plain sick.
