That just seems like the creators' way to cater to an even more risqué kink.

[–]Skootchy 1888 points1889 points  (118 children)

Yeah except when it closes the fuck hole off. Wonder what happens if you put it in and it decides in the middle it doesn't want to.

I still don't understand how he got her pregnant. Was that ever explained? Like, did Gero randomly leave her uterus in there?

[–]GetEquipped 22 points23 points  (19 children)

It's complicated,

Out-of-Lore reason is Toriyama is kind of a screwball and doesn't think things through. He also has a tendency to have supporting female cast to pop out kids as a way to write them out of the story, such as Chi-chi, Bulma, 18, and Videl

Kayfabe Reason: In the Japanese and Manga, (Which they were literally translated was "Artificial Human 17 and 18" but it's more along the lines of "Created Human 17-18:) Bulma stated they were they enhanced at a cellular level and mainly organic; Gohan later affirms this in Dragon Ball Super that the only mechanical things was the energy supply (and mechanism to use it.), the bomb, and shut off switch.

TFS DBZA reason: According to Bulma's father, Dr. Briefs (who is protrayed in the fan parody as a racist, chauvinist, and just unethical monster) So a woman would "still be useful for something."

[–]hotlavatube 133 points134 points  (44 children)

That's when your robot deploys the "anti-rape condom"

[–]NonOffensiveGuy 159 points160 points  (29 children)

Well that's one way to turn a rape into a murder.

[–]IndijinusPhonetic 75 points76 points  (26 children)

This is straight up truth. That sounds incredibly risky for the women involved...

[–]NonOffensiveGuy 61 points62 points  (24 children)

The only time an outcome would be good is if she's able to escape the attacker mid-attack. I'm not really sure that happens very often. The video even admitted it won't prevent rape, just punishes the attackers. Now, I'm not saying it's not a great punishment for the attackers, it totally is. I just don't see the logistics of it helping the victim. Even if it became a deterrent, it would then just become common knowledge to check for it first.

[–]MelisandreStokes 43 points44 points  (19 children)

Make the teeth hollow, fill em with knockout drug. He passes out and she gtfo

That's basically what one character does in the novel Snow Crash.

Yep, where I got the idea

Dunno why no one ever brings it up in dentata discussions, it's such a good solution to the "yeah but then what?" problem

[–]basilis120 27 points28 points  (9 children)

Couple if reasons. The big one being that in real life knock out drugs are unreliable and inconsistent. What may be mildly inconvenient to one person may be fatal to another. Another reason is those drugs tend to be heavily regulated.

Technically, we're all just machines built to fuck. We're just made of proteins and nucleic acids instead of metal and silicone. All this other stuff we do is really just an elaborate gloss over our basic biological drive to propagate our genomes through sexual reproduction.

[–]Hanselhoof 81 points82 points  (22 children)

If you want to be that technical, then no none of us are machines built to fuck. We're not made for any purpose. We're just an accident that began when a hot soup of chemicals turned into something that could self-replicate.

Nobody built us to preserve our species because evolution isn't a force with intent. It's just a thing that happens, and it makes sense that creatures that want to and are good at having children cause the species to endure and evolve into something better at surviving and having children. No cosmic intent told us to preserve our species, we kinda just want to cause being is pretty alright ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What if it got turned on by you doing proactive and bold positive things with your life.

Give it reactions similar to an actual woman's attraction, but tweak the difficulty setting so it's easy enough to impress. Then have it slowly crank up the impressiveness price for getting laid.

"Ooh look at Big Shooter who made his bed! Fuck me Big Shooter! Fuck me harder!"

[–]missedthecue 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Then after a few months these guys would not longer require a robot

[–]intensely_human 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Precisely.

I don't mind the idea of "robot consent" if that consent carries a similar meaning to human women's consent: I won the sexual selection game by winning at life.

It would be nice if the ratios were a bit different though.

[–]TheSnowglobeFromHell 176 points177 points  (12 children)

Having some kind of 'fail-state' makes it more rewarding when you actually score it, and it will probably be tuned to be far much easier than the real thing; just for the illusion of an accomplishment.

[–]MidgardDragon 44 points45 points  (2 children)

Accurate but also let's not suggest that most people with rape fantasies actually want to rape people. Most people that I've known with rape fantasiies have been women into the submissiveness or fighting back but giving in, and they didn't want to really be raped.

They really are missing the point of WHY anyone would want a sex robot. They don't want a robotic wife, they want a fuckbot. Simple. If they developed different models, they'd see a difference in sales, easily.

So what you are saying is it acts exactly like a lot of actual rape victims?

[–]__xor__ 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Probably catering to that as well, but I also think that some men might in fact want a wifebot.

What's the fun in having something that always pretends to love constant sex? It kills the illusion. It makes you focus on the fact that it's actually just a plastic fucktoy.

A small feature like this might seem stupid, but I bet you they might've heard complaints like "it's not real enough, sounds like it wants sex too much" or something similar. In the end I think the kind of people that buy this sort of thing want something that gives them an illusion they have a passionate lover, not something to fuck. If they wanted something to fuck they'd buy a silicone ass, not a full on doll that tries to imitate a human while being fuckable. They want something realistic, the actual girlfriend experience. I bet you most their customers don't want something that pretends to always want sex when they interact with it. They want something they can cuddle with as well, something that seems like they have to take care of it.

I bet you a lot of their customers are looking for the full emotional experience of sex with a human, and they're not trying to just buy something they can pull out of the closet when they want to fuck it. It's not logical but I think saying "no" now and then is part of that, just a small little hint that it doesn't want it sometimes, because when it "does want it" it seems that much more real.

[–]sassypants55 67 points68 points  (8 children)

Are they? I can easily see this being a ploy to sound more politically correct while actually enhancing the experience for someone who gets off on that kind of power. The article goes into how she can't actually fight back; she just becomes "unresponsive."

[–]NemWan 52 points53 points  (6 children)

It has no feelings or self-awareness and it withholds consent arbitrariliy. That's certainly not what a person should be trained to think about another person.

That said, a person who maintains a healthy separation between fantasy and reality should be able to do whatever they want with their robot or virtual reality.

[–]The_Josh_Of_Clubs 7 points8 points  (0 children)

And just like that, the wheels are in motion for robot rights and the first case of robot sexual assault

[–]MoMedic9019 65 points66 points  (0 children)

This will be tried in the court of law. Karen, a middle aged Christian mother from Connecticut will be offended about a lonely guy in rural Nevada and this robots ability to “consent” after she watches a program on TLC about robot sex. Then she will form a Facebook group leading to protests and it’ll enrage everyone leading to an update in the software requiring 4 different types of consent before proceeding with initial coitus, and an additional form every 30 seconds during.

The trial will likely take place in Los Angeles and he will publicly shamed while two warring protest groups half of which would be sex workers for his ability to plow a robot freely, and the other half will be from MARS, or Moms Against Robot Sex, led by that stuffy bitch Karen.

I highly doubt that the folks who buy sex robots demand "realistic female behavior" from said sex robots. They just want a quote-unquote "person" to fuck.

$4,700 for sex doll that's going to tell you no?! That's way cheaper than my gf. where do I sign up?

That defeats the purpose of getting a sex robot

What's stopping someone from just reprogramming the thing to be always horny?

[–]IAmASeeker 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Now you're asking the real questions.

Somebody will. I guarantee it.

If I can play PS1 games on my phone and DooM on an ATM and Bubble Bobble on my calculator... If gearheads learn to override the speed limiter on their cars and farmers learn to rewrite firmware for their tractors... If you can just download a brand-new firmware for your Android from the app-store that some dude made in his basement... Then you can definitely reprogram the sex-bot if you so desire.

Why might someone do that?

INB4 someone plays Doom on a sex bot.

This is why you NEVER download that new iPhone software update when it first comes out

Will this feature be added to women's toys as well?

[–]FreakyCheeseMan 39 points40 points  (2 children)

I wonder how hard it would be to make a vibrator that shrank and went limp if you took more than two minutes to orgasm.

[–]TheSnowglobeFromHell 4 points5 points  (1 child)

What kind of monster lasts a whole 2 minutes!?

How, exactly, can it refuse?

It's in the article. She can't. She just becomes unresponsive.

It plays a recording of the word no and it's vagina analogue seals itself shut, as does the anus analog, and the mouth analog.

[–]HerrXRDS 26 points27 points  (5 children)

A hole designed to put your dick into it can seal itself shut? That doesn't seem like a good idea.

[–]ZDTreefur 24 points25 points  (31 children)

We going to talk about how it threw a bunch of completely unrelated buzzwords around like toxic masculinity and dating culture, when the story is about a sex toy?

[–]IAmASeeker 19 points20 points  (27 children)

They don't want the story to be about sex toys...

Take a look at the sex toy market and you'll find some interesting differences between toys for men and toys for women... They want to ensure that the conversation isn't about that.

What a bad programmer

[–]12121212l 3 points4 points  (1 child)

damn we live in a time when you can be rejected by a sex robot

[–]colbycheese2316 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's clearly geared toward those with a rape fetish

71% of men and 50% of women would replace their partners with robotic sexual surrogates.

No fucking way.
