Roxxxy: The hottest new sex robot

Roxxxy, the world’s newest sex robot, debuted at the Adult Entertainment Expo this January, 2010. She’s pictured below with her inventor, Creep Show, nee Douglas Hines.

Roxxxy comes with five different personalities like “Wild Wendy,” and “Frigid Farrah,” who feels fat and has “had a bad day.” “Want to rub my callouses?” she asks. If you are a Pedobear, you might like “Young” who’s barely 18 and whose real name was too creepy to include in the demonstration. She says things like “Hey, what do you like? Well, besides children, hee, hee, is that what grown ups do?” “Hey there stud,” says Mature Martha, who’s “interested in taking care of you.” Lastly there is “S & M Susan,” who is geared for more adventurous types.

While some are calling her the world’s first sex robot, she’s really just the newest and raunchiest gynoid to come off the sex doll conveyor belt. The 120-lb robot likes Porsches and football, and comes in customizable race, color, and breast size. Roxxxy listens, speaks to you, feels your touch and will fall asleep with you at night.

Roxxy is available for purchase in Europe and the US, for a price of $7,000 to $9,000. (with accompanying laptop.)

Rumor has it a male version called ‘Rocky’ is also in the pipeline.

There have been several robot sex dolls before Roxxy, like those by CybOrgasMatrix, a company that makes anatomically correct sex robots of celebrity model Pandora Peaks, made with elastomeric gel.

PandoraSakaiHome The first sex doll on record was named Galatea, a mythical creation of Ovid’s, sculpted from Cyprus and Pygmalion. The man in Ovid’s story became obsessed with Galatea so the goddess Aphrodite brought the statue to life. The term “dame de voyage,” is a sailor’s term referring to a female doll made out of cloth that they kept on board.

Props to roboticists David Levy and Henrik Christensen who both predicted the rise of the sex robots. In 2006, Christensen told the UK’s Sunday Times that “people are going to be having sex with robots within five years.”

“Love with robots will be as normal as love with other humans. 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.”

–David Levy

    ewe.

    Call me crazy but I kinda like banging a human. I know I know, I’m living in the 80s, right?

      Yeah really, wtf. If you’re that desperate wouldnt you rather spend that $7,000-$9,000 on a life coach or something, or put some work in yourself aquiring the skills and attributes that will attract the opposite sex AND make you a better person? Or I guess you can furiously bang a mannequin for the rest of your life…

      In response to another comment. See in context »

    OK.

    I debated long and hard over whether I would comment on this piece…and what I would say. This VERY NSFW comic called Chester 5000 XYV is all I got:

    Ewwww. I don’t know about the rest of you, but this is a real turn-off. I mean, somewhere between the notion of using toys in the bedroom and this monstrosity, something was lost: Isn’t sex something you’re supposed to share with someone you love?
