For some, these sex dolls are a little unusual. The idea of having a sex robot in your life as a sex toy is terrifying to a number of people. They don’t understand it, and feel that it takes away from the pleasure of having sex with a real person.

It makes it worse when developers talk about the fact that they hope to add different personalities and intelligence to the dolls and sexbots so that they can respond to the person using them. People don’t understand why personality matters… so why might personality matter with a sex doll?

How sex dolls used to be

It used to be that buying a sex doll wasn’t something you really did for your own pleasure. Instead it was something that you did as a joke for a friend. They were, and the cheap ones still are, plastic blow up dolls. They still often appear on stag parties, handcuffed to the party-goers, but how many people actualy buy them to use?

They were very much novelty items. You didn’t buy them if you were serious about getting a sex doll. There were a few websites online where you could get dolls if that was the kind of thing you wanted, but they were extremely expensive.

And so people would either buy the plastic ones and suffer while using them, or they would simply not buy them at all.

Recent changes and developments

Of course there have been plenty of people out there eager to enjoy sex with a doll, and this means that companies have been hard at work to try and create alternatives to the rubber dolls we know.

They wanted to create dolls with realistic feeling skin… or as realistic as they can. Fleshlights are incredibly popular male masturbators, and many companies have tried to incorporate them into the toys to make each stroke feel more realistic and intense. This, when combined with the more realistic skin, makes it feel so much better than a plastic blow up doll.

They’ve also made it so that you can move their limbs. You can put them into different positions. With blow up dolls it is simply that you lie them down, while dolls with moveable limbs can be put into any position you want. You can go through the entire Kama Sutra if you wanted!

Personality, virtual and artificial intelligence

For a long time many creators have wanted to take things a step further. It isn’t enough to make the dolls look realistic. They also wanted to make them act in a more realistic way by giving them personalities. Since you can now ask Siri to tell you a joke, it didn’t seem like a huge leap.

They wanted to make it so that the dolls could respond to you. They hoped that doing this would make them more entertaining and turn them from elaborate sex dolls into an interactive experience. They wanted the dolls to be able to respond to questions, and maybe one day have feelings.

Now it seems that the first talking sex doll will actually be able to have different personalities. So if you want to fuck a doll loves makes jokes, you can do. Hoping to fuck a doll who loves dirty talk? You can add this to her personality.

Named Harmony 2.0, not only will she flirt with you, but she’ll also remember things such as your favourite food and the things you love the most. You can even have an intellectual debate with her! Of course, some believe that this is taking things a step too far. They feel that the dolls may simply replace relationships… but what do you think?

Would you try one?

I can’t wait to hear more about these dolls. They seem like an interesting idea, and adding AI to them creates a whole other level to these dolls. They aren’t simply sex dolls. They can also become companions to people.

But what do you think? Do you believe that these dolls are going to be a good idea, or should we stick to other toys? Do you think that you would use one of these dolls yourself?
