I’m an ethics expert and I think sex robots will be GOOD for society as humans ‘advance with variety’ 0 234

AS Artificial Intelligence technology continues to advance, many may be wondering about the moral implications of sex robots, and how they would affect society.

But an ethics expert has claimed that sex robots will actually be good for society, as humans advance when presented with a variety of options.

In a piece for Men’s Health, Center for Professional and Applied Ethics at the University of Manitoba director Neil MacArthur explains that sex robots will help address “intimacy and sex inequality.”

MacArthur believes sex robots would help people who don’t have access to sexual partners because of a variety of factors such as age, health, or “level of conventional attractiveness.”

“We talk a lot about access to education. We talk a lot about access to healthcare,” MacArthyr told the outlet.

“Why do we care about those things? Health is a human good, education is a human good, knowledge is a human good. Well, sex and intimacy. Those are human goods in the same way.”

Opponents of sex robots have expressed concern that this accessibility would breed social isolation, as robots would be an easier option than humans.

But MacArthur disagrees with that notion, arguing that humans don’t necessarily always choose the easiest option.

“We default to variety, and this is also how we advance our lives and our careers – by choosing hard over easy by ourselves,” he explains.

Additionally, MacArthur says, humans want reciprocated desire, something robots can only hope to one day mimic.

While robots are already a reality, the technology is not good enough yet for sex robots; the closest thing we have are more like sex dolls.

For MacArthur, stigmas about sex robots are harmful because they are an obstacle to research.

“I think it could be a really exciting future. Or, we could not have the conversation, or have it in a very narrow way, and then we’re just going to be trapped in a very slow moving and very uninteresting future.”

And it appears many are open to the idea of sex robots indeed.

According to a recent study, two in five people said they were open to the idea of having sex with a robot. 

In fact more people prefer to be intimate with a sex bot (37.5 percent) instead of having casual sex with a human lover (30.1 percent).

Supporting Ukraine Through Purchasing Power: The Initiatives Keeping the Country’s Economy Afloat 0 173

Amidst the Russian invasion, Ukrainian creatives are launching initiatives to keep the country’s economy going by harnessing consumer power. Spend With Ukraine is one such online resource that connects consumers to Ukraine-based businesses across various industries, while the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund allows for donations to support artists. Co-founder of Spend With Ukraine, Andrey Klen, emphasizes the importance of supporting the Ukrainian economy through purchasing decisions. He states, “Armies win battles, but economies win wars.”

Ukrainian brands are still operating and many are donating a portion of their sales to different needs to support the country. To sustain interest in supporting Ukraine through spending, increasing the visibility of these initiatives is key. As Klen says, “We want it to blow out.” These efforts not only help Ukrainian creatives but also support existing industries and provide a sense of normality in these difficult times.

Ensuring Safety and Consent in the Adult Film Industry: A Vital Discussion 0 258

One topic that may be of interest to readers in the adult film industry is the topic of workplace safety and consent.

The adult film industry, like any other industry, has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of its workers. This includes providing a safe working environment, protecting workers from physical and emotional harm, and ensuring that all acts are consensual. However, the nature of the adult film industry can make it difficult to ensure that these standards are met. Actors and actresses may feel pressure to perform acts that they are not comfortable with, and there have been instances of abuse and exploitation in the industry.

To address these issues, it is essential for the industry to have clear guidelines and policies in place to protect the rights and safety of workers. This includes providing education and resources for performers, implementing strict consent protocols, and holding producers and directors accountable for ensuring a safe working environment.

Another important aspect of this topic is the importance of consent in adult film. Consent is a crucial aspect of any sexual encounter and must be obtained freely, enthusiastically, and without coercion. In the adult film industry, where performers are engaging in sexual acts on camera, it is especially important that consent is explicitly obtained and respected. This can be achieved through the use of consent forms and communication between performers before and during filming.

By discussing these topics, the industry can work towards creating a safer and more respectful environment for all performers and ensure that the rights and well-being of workers are protected.
