The rage now among men who love to live their sexual fantasies but probably couldn't find a female sex partner willing to do what they want is to buy a realistic love doll. Priced at a minimum of $2,000, the doll manufactured by a Japanese firm, Oriental Industry, may find competition within a decade from sex robots.

The idea of sex robots was briefly tackled by Stowe Boyd, lead researcher of GigaOM Research, in the 60-page report of Pew Research released in August, titled AI, Robotics and the Future of Jobs.

Among the predictions of Boyd in the report were that in the near future, pizza delivery wouldn't be made by teenagers, but would be "raised by robotic vehicles, even in small plot urban farms that will become the norm." Doctors would no longer review X-rays, rather the task would be done by Watson-grade AIs, although humans would be called if the machines disagree on their diagnosis.

However, what piqued the interest of Extreme Tech writer Sebastian Anthony is Boyd's forecast that "robotic sex partners will be commonplace." Ahead of the Pew report, Anthony said that in 2012, he had foreseen the availability of realistic sexbots as early as 2017. Calling them "robostitutes," he wrote then that these AI creatures would likely not have human-level intelligence, but could cost real sex workers their source of livelihood.

From that phenomenon will arise the discipline of Lovotics, or the study of human-robot relationships because of the anticipated wide-ranging impact of such kind of relationships.

But since that is about 10 years away and some men who can't handle the complexities of a male-female relationship can't wait for the sexbots, the realistic-looking dolls from Japan would perform a biological function for males willing to make love to them.

To provide buyers of the dolls more incentive, Oriental Industry said that the play thing has silicone to give users a skin-feel experience and is fully customisable for certain features such as its breast size, look and hair and tight fit or loose fit orifices.
