Imagine coming home to a woman that will never leave you, never turn you down for sexual desires, and never fight back against dominance.

Welcome to the world of female sex robots.

The sex industry is often an uncomfortable subject that isn’t widely discussed. Yet, a 2016 Tufts University study cited that more than two-thirds of men would use a sex robot.

Women are now literal objects for men to control in their own sexual fantasy pursuits.

The almost real-life features of the robots add to the experience too. Sometimes, they are even hard to distinguish from a real woman. The sex technology industry, which, according to Forbes, will be worth $50 billion by 2020, is producing women with features so close to reality that the only difference is that they are objects; real women are not—supposedly.

“[Companies] can, however, use photographs of a person of your choice to select a face structure as similar as possible from our line of 16 standard female faces,” according to the website of RealDoll, a leading sex technology brand under the company Abyss Creations.

These companies cross the line by teaching men that they are given a fundamental right in which they are always entitled to a woman’s body for their own pleasures. With these dolls, men can overpower a woman’s consent and continue to fuel their cravings for dominance and violence.

Not only does the sex robot industry objectify women, it facilitates dangerous behaviors that are masked in a seemingly acceptable community.

For rapists and pedophiles, these robots provide an outlet to fulfill their overwhelming sexual desires rather than helping them learn to control their impulses.

The mindset of “Well, it’s better to rape robots than people” is flawed.

This notion suggests that men have such an innate drive to act sexually violent towards women that they will never have the capability to control it; the best they can do is redirect it into an inanimate object. 

These robots give an out to people who crave misogynistic fulfillment by normalizing sexual addiction in an unhealthy form. If a man treats a sex robot and a real-life woman the same way, it’s a problem.

If the stereotype is that girls play with dolls when they are kids, then the truth is that boys play with dolls when they are adults. And we can’ t allow this objectification to continue.
