Sex date bot
In 1997, Matt Mc Mullen began constructing lifelike, tin-cure silicon mannequins called Real Dolls that were ‘realistic, posable, and life-sized’.
Mc Mullen received much criticism about the anatomical correctness of his mannequins; using this as motivation to create a more enhanced version.
In September 2015, the Japanese company Soft Bank, the makers of the "Pepper" robot, included a ban on robot sex.
The robot's user agreement states: "The policy owner must not perform any sexual act or other indecent behaviour".
Many manufacturers, including Mc Mullen, believed that companionship is a critical part of the sex bot dynamic and that incorporating AI into them is the next step.
As of 2018, various new models have been constructed to hold conversations, remember important facts, and express various emotions.
For example, Dali’s Rainy Taxi centered on a female mannequin whose half undressed body was crawling with live snails.
By 1968, sex dolls were first advertised in pornographic magazines and became available for purchase via mail.
Man Ray claimed that surrealists, including himself and Dali, infused their work with eroticism and personally "violated" their mannequins.A short review of this book (in Spanish), can be found here.There are ongoing attempts to make sex dolls socially interactive.By the 1970s, materials such as latex and silicone were widely used in the manufacturing of sex dolls to facilitate enhanced durability and a greater resemblance to a human.The realism of sex robots greatly accelerated in the late 1990s.
