I was going to reply to Thaddeus' post "Built for Love" but figured it was too big a response on this topic. So in the article from Thaddeus' post the topic of our 'hardwiring' towards emotional response in relationships  with robots was discussed. Of course, we human beings doing what we do in our creative pursuits have now crossed the 'mechanical sexual' threshold. In the Film 'Blade Runner' the theme concerned the rights of the 'manufactured'. One of the band of 'Replicants' was a 'pleasure model' used for 'morale enhancement' on far-flung off-world military bases. Well, we've got those now!

I became aware of these startlingly realistic 'Love Dolls' back in '97 on a production I was working on. I thought the anatomically correct 'female' dolls could be a viable substitute as 'body doubles' for actresses unwilling to do critical love or nude scenes. In the years since I have seen how these 'Real Dolls' have not only become 'companions' to people, but have sparked a whole industry of 'Android Sex Companions'! Those who have embraced this technology are called 'idollators'.

Here's a link to the Real Doll site. Be advised, it is adult material and is suggested for Mature Audiences only.

Also, here is the very informative documentary on the subject called "Guys and Dolls". It's kind of hard to watch (like watching a car wreck) in that it is an 'alternative lifestyle' most are not ready to deal with. However, it does give some great insight on the expectations that come with relationships between the 'biological' and the 'inanimate'.

Sean, you've nailed the premise for 'The PAnd0RA Ultimatum'. People are lonely enough with as many people are on this planet. Imagine what life is like for people working and living out in the galaxy?

I'm a big proponent of love bots.  I wasn't always but what turned me was stories of male vets that come back from service and have lost their wife or girlfriend because of a war injury physical or mental and simply need companionship.  Another story was a guy who lives in Alaska where women are pretty scarce so he got a love doll and has never been happier.  There are many upsides, one is cost.  While it's true the initial cost is expensive in the long run its far cheaper then a human female.  Think of the ring she wants you to buy, then anniversary gifts after anniversary gifts, then there's the high probability of divorce, that's just another reason to go down this road.  These bots are going to get more and more advanced and eventually will be able to prepare your favorite food and hold a conversation.  There's already have AI that learns as you talk to it. Check out the Ultra Hal Assistant on http://zabaware.com/  Below is a youtube video of a guy who made his own.  I'll be working on mine soon for a science paper I'm working on.  As a Physics major and technophile, I find this fascinating and inevitable.

I Prefer The Embrace Of A Woman. Nothing Beats Her Organic Presence. 

Fascinating!  I not familiar with 'The PAnd0RA Ultimatum'.  Is this a new book that's out?  It sound very interesting.  I see the world going in a similar direction to the movie Cherry 2000 but not as extreme.  The whole having a lawyer on tap before beginning a date maybe a little over board but a personal bot in the home of a single guy is pretty close to what's coming.  Where can I see more info about 'The PAnd0RA Ultimatum'?

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
