Robot Strippers a Window Into the Future

LAS VEGAS (AP) — On a recent evening in Las Vegas during the CES technology show, robot strippers offered a window into technology’s gender fault lines — not to mention our robot future (view photos in gallery).

From a distance, the mechanical humanoids on a strip-club stage looked something like real dancers in robot drag. But close up, they were clearly mannequins with surveillance-camera heads and abstractly sculpted feminine chests, buttocks and backs, shimmying and thrusting their boxy plastic hips.

    I’m guessing bars with robot strippers sell a lot of drinks — out of necessity.

    okay, that’s it, bring on the meteorite of death.

    I can’t see this taking off. It’s novelty, but it won’t get the blood pumping or the desired reactions.

  • I am not even attracted to silicon-filled fun bags – this is nothing short of stupid.

    Killer robot hookers from the future can’t be far away now!

      I was thinking that something that looks like a terminator is not really conducive to getting the motor running. It’s less likely to cause arrousal and more likely to install a fight or flight response.

      Looking forwards to a Skynet-brand Terminator T-X model. She can be any woman a man likes and this man will never have a better sexual partner. Downside: the man will never have another sexual partner.

        Feminist really are skating on thin ice.
        When half the women out there can be replaced with a companion robot, there is something really wrong in your gender garden.

    Leftist SJWs & Feminists believe that men will accept anything as strippers: women, robots, other men, or transsexuals. For them it is the act, not who is doing the act nor the fantasy behind the act. Any substitution can be made without ruining the reason according to them.

    Same thinking is exhibited when these same activists want a mandatory 50% of women participation in everything (as long as women don’t already hold more than 50% of the places.) For these activists, what individuals want is immaterial, and group representation is the only thing that matters and not why there might be factors that determine participation other than pre sexism.
