Your Future Sex Partner
Like David Levy’s publisher, now I have your attention.
The Evolution Of Human-Robot Relationships
By David Levy
Harper. 334 pp. $24.95
Here’s one author’s vision of the future sexual relations between human being and robots. In the Washington Post review Joel Achenbach, writes:
“’Love with robots will be as normal as love with other humans,’” Levy writes, "while the number of sexual acts and lovemaking positions commonly practiced between humans will be extended, as robots teach us more than is in all of the world's published sex manuals combined.’”
“Levy goes on to imagine a world of robot prostitutes, or ‘sexbots,’ which would offer people a chance to practice their technique before entering a human relationship. ‘With a robot prostitute,’ he writes, "the control of disease is implicit -- simply remove the active parts and put them in the disinfecting machine.”
I am waiting for a novel to run with this theme. Low-tech bars may well be turned into museums.
