What do members think of Robot 'Partners'.

Will they be a fad or replace Internet pornography.

I think by the time androids can even remotely resemble people we'll have virtual reality (2050-ish).

Why would it be a fad? As soon as you have an android (or gynoid, whatever floats your boat) which is sentient and intelligent, you will be able to have THE perfect life partner; something which looks, talk and behaves in a way that is attractive to you, that is programmed to love you and so on. It will be like having a bespoke suit in form of a companion, something that is specifically made for you. Who wouldn't want that? Even those who oppose it at first will end up giving in eventually, considering you won't be able to tell a human from an android.

I approve! :3
It's apparent to me that a lot of people seem to want to prove why a technology is not possible, rather than think of ingenious ways to make something possible. It's my conviction that when someone says something is "impossible," what they really mean is "our current level of science cannot explain this, and I don’t have the motivation to explore beyond its boundaries." -Richard Obousy

We are already a very sexual species. When this technology becomes mainstream, we'll be beyond sexual as it's gonna be very readily available anytime when it suits your mood! Imagine the frenzy! The streets will look lonely all day, except for the occasional exhibitionist going at it with impunity. How will this affect our evolution down the road, I wonder, hmm?

With immortality on the horizon, I think this will be a moot point.

We will still need to evolve, no matter what we are made of. We will continue to improve ourselves. After we achieve supernatural abilities (as we understand what they are) in the 22nd or 23rd century, we will definitely strive to go beyond that because that level won't be sufficient anymore. We will have new goals and dreams we can't begin to comprehend right now.

Oh. I thought you meant biological evolution. There will always be the drive to improve our species, whether we can have abundant orgies or not. Infact, I would think that being able to fulfill our sexual desires would allow us to focus our energy on more productive things. I mean, sure, sex is nice, but I know there's more to life than that. It wouldn't be the ONLY thing I do. I would WANT to explore other worlds and advance technology.

I agree that this technology is very close. If I had to choose one of today's robots as my partner I would choose this one:

Most people assume we would want one that resembles a human as much as possible but will this necessarily be the case? Are humans really the optimal lovers? In the past people might have thought human brains were the ultimate "computers" but now (in some respects at least) we have computers that can do things much much better. Of course our natural impulses and desires are to be attracted to humans but this could change, especially if we end up living for thousands of years and the need for human-human reproduction vanishes completely. When humanity and artificial intelligence grows closer to each other and adopts each others traits whose to say what kind of sexual pleasures we will eventually desire. Personally I'm already there, If there's electricity flowing through it, I'll do it.

I am not sure if your attraction to an object that has "electricity flowing through it" is a fetish. What is the name of it?

Anyway, I agree with most of what you said, but I think there will still be a subset of humans who will rather have a lover (or a group of lovers) that looks human. It has a lot to do with the fact humans have a very wide range of preferences - it will remain so until, for some reason, it is a competitive disadvantage to do this way.
