Do humans fantasize about falling in love with sex dolls?

[block id=”blogads”]

Researchers at a domestic university conducted a survey of college students to see if they would fall in love with sex dolls. More than two-thirds of men agreed with this view, while almost the same percentage of women opposed it.

The first reaction is to attribute the difference to gender. Humans are not interested in anything as long as their basic human desires are satisfied, and who would disagree? When relationships are in disarray and the psychological and physical spread of illness becomes a real threat, sex dolls may be the best option for getting out of the relationship.

Even recognizing the leanings of this point of view, ESDOLL editors believe that an alternative consciousness-themed film, The Puppets, supports it.This work, directed by Japanese animation master Ji Hiroshi, tells the story of a anime sex doll The owner Hideo wakes up at work and is named “Little Wang”.When they were together, Xiuxiong tried his best to take care of this dead man. TPE sex doll, take a bath, comb her hair, dress up, fall in love with her. But when he found her “alive”, he demanded reinstatement.

As an “air doll” promoting the story of urban loneliness, it is actually a journey to find love in another realm of consciousness. The desire to court, in this instinct, is entirely human. But in a world full of strange love, its courtship ended in tragedy. Ino is portrayed as a bad guy, but is he an outsider or normal in the age of fast food love?

Is everything scary? When I saw the conclusion of the study, the editor of ESDOLL also thought of another movie “Her”, which was directed by Spike Jones in 2013 and starred Jackie Phoenix as a lonely man and woman in the future world. , developed a relationship with an artificially intelligent sex robot doll named “Samantha”.

At the beginning of the film, Theodore is in the midst of a divorce and does not want to try a new relationship. However, loneliness from the city prompts him to try to get in touch with Samantha. Maybe it was his pain in real relationship failure that spurred him, but who can tell? Perhaps Scarlett Johansson’s voice attracted him.

If “Aerial Puppet” also tells about the last tenderness of a man, “She” is just the opposite. At the end of the film, Samantha gives him the fatal blow. It tells Theodore that in addition to being with him, it is in contact with thousands of people every second. It was a blow to the audience. This made Theo even more sad. It gives us a common understanding of technology. Samantha’s robotic multitasking program makes life easier, rather than suddenly leaching all meaning out of life, just as Samantha brings such an empty, instrumental understanding.

Yet the different treatment of non-human love in The Puppet and Her also reveals a common truth. “Little Wang” and “Samantha” are not human, but very human. For “Little Wang”, it’s easier to imagine. After all, she’s a very human-like sex doll, but even a voice-only “Samantha” feels like she’s a real person. When they appear on screen, audiences cannot imagine that they are anything other than human. Simply admit that they need to constantly struggle with the urge to see them as non-human.

When we think of them as humans, they both ask us a more fundamental question: When we discuss sex dolls, what are we talking about? As AI penetrates, should we realize that beyond the boundaries of science, we may not be able to distinguish between robots and humans?

If study participants had seen sex dolls or new-age anthropomorphic robots before they were asked this question, their answers might have been completely different.
