In times of weaponized sexual accusations, is it any wonder that some men desire robots? The idea that men would purchase a lifelike female sex robot who can be programmed to be submissive or reluctant is frightening to many. Sex robots could be programmed to do the opposite of what we fear: They could teach men and women about consent and female sexual pleasure. Since sex robots are in their infancy, now is the time to start shaping them into the technology we want them to be, not the technology we fear.
