According to a pair of New Zealand researchers, sex robots are the future of prostitution. The two claim that robot prostitutes will completely revolutionize the sex tourism industry by 2050.
The paper titled "Robots, Men and Sex Tourism," published in the journal Futures, claims robot sex is safe, free from constraints, precautions, and the uncertainties of the "real deal."
The paper described a futuristic imaginary sex club in Amsterdam called Yub-Yum, where tourists pay 10,000 euros for massages, lap dances, and straight sex from sex robots, moving around the club.
Yub-Yum would include sexual gods and goddesses of different ethnicities, body shapes, ages, languages and sexual features.
The bonus is that the futuristic environment would be free of sexually transmitted diseases, because the sex robots would be made of bacteria-resistant fiber that would be flushed of human fluids after use.
The New Zealand researchers, Yeoman and Mars, said they came up with their predictions based on the growth of the sex industry, the human fascination with beauty, and the predicted social reforms to combat human trafficking.
