It’s time to have the talk about robot sex.
In the last few years, sex dolls have evolved into sex robots. They may not act fully human yet, but they’re getting smarter. Roboticists say it’s time to look at sex robots’ potential impact and start defining the policy for their use and distribution. These robots are completely customizable, allowing any dreamed-up body to become tangible in android form.
But the realism doesn’t come cheap. The price for a sex robots ranges between $5,000 and $15,000.
Some academics believe the robots could help prevent sexual violence. Others, however, think it’ll just encourage illegal behavior with violence against robots turning into violent acts against humans.
That said, can they one day replace romantic partners? Realistic sex dolls without artificial intelligence are poised to explode in popularity in China where there’s 30 million more men than women. That imbalance has helped Exdoll grow to a $3 million business. The Chinese company sells dolls between $750 and $3,400, and customers don’t just use them for sex. Some treat the replicants like a best friend by buying them clothes and tucking them into bed at night.
Still, when the lights go out, only the owner knows what will happen.

Third day of hearing on the constitutional validity of section 377 of the IPC. Yesterday the Supreme Court said that the matter in court is restricted to whether homosexuality should be treated as a crime or not. The apex courts’ observation came after the centre filed a 3-page affidavit in the court. The bench hearing the case said that choice of partner comes under article 21 which makes it a fundamental right and consensual sex between two adults cannot be treated as an offence even when it is unnatural. Now that the centre has left the matter to the wisdom of the court, can we say that a 158-year-old colonial law will finally be scrapped?
Getting amorous in a swimming pool is popular in Hollywood movies, and anecdotal evidence indicates it’s reasonably popular in the real world as well.
There’s just one thing pool-lovers should bear in mind…make sure your romance is happening in YOUR OWN POOL!
Not following this advice can lead to trouble…as a hot-and-bothered dude in Florida recently discovered.
On Sunday, March 30, an off-duty police officer was returning to his Boca Raton apartment complex when he heard noises coming from the premises’ private pool.
As the officer investigated, he discovered a couple who did not live in the complex engaged in sexual activity in the pool.
After identifying himself as an off-duty cop, he ordered the couple to scram and they reluctantly complied.
Shortly thereafter, however, the cop was surprised to find that the couple had returned to his pool for round two!
The cop again confronted the couple, but the unsatisfied male individual, identified as Tony Ribeiro, allegedly tried to hit the officer with a wine bottle.
The officer then fired several shots at the man, who is now in critical condition at a local hospital.
And, for the record, 9 out of 10 safety experts advise against having sex in someone else’s pool, while doctors say there are also non-gunshot related health risks associated with intimacy in chlorine-filled swimming pools.
With cases of child abuse and sexual assaults on the rise, 9 Months presents a detailed episode on how parents can teach their children to be strong and understand good touch from bad touch. Parents can also learn about the rights and laws for child safety in India including POCSO — a new law. Under discussion are also sex education, signs and symptoms of child abuse, ways to ensure safety of children indoors and outdoors and much more.
This year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry went to three scientists for using the power of evolution to design molecules with a range of practical uses.
Ro Aram reports.
Half of the award went to California Institute of Technology professor Frances Arnold – the fifth woman to win a chemistry Nobel Prize.
The other half was shared by University of Missouri professor George Smith and British biochemist Gregory Winter.
Arnold was awarded for her work in harnessing the power of evolution to produce enzymes and antibodies used in everything from detergents and biofuels to cancer drugs.
Her research opens up the possibility for more environmentally friendly products.
“Enzymes are, by nature, they are environmental, because they are what all we organisms use to make our chemicals. So if you can harness enzymes, for your own purposes, this is often much more environmentally friendly than using heavy metals or toxic substances to make your chemicals….”
Smith won for a technique called “phage display” which uses a genetically engineered virus that infects bacteria in order to evolve new proteins.
Winter used that method for evolving antibodies with the aim of producing new drugs.
The first drug based on this work is used against rheumatoid arthritis, a skin condition known as psoriasis and inflammatory bowel disease.
Meanwhile, scientists from the United States, Canada and France shared the physics prize on Tuesday.
The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize is to be announced Friday and the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences will be revealed Monday.
No Nobel literature prize will be awarded this year due to a sex abuse scandal at the Swedish Academy, which choses the winner.

A 2009 Book of the Year, USA Book News “It can t happen to me.” Many high school students and young adults, seduced by their sense of invincibility, are stunned when they are diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection (STI). But the fact is that anyone can catch an STI: no age group, social class, economic class, culture, religion, gender, or ethnic group is immune. To drive home the risks and realities of unprotected sex, Dr. Jill Grimes shares real-life stories of young people-medical students, college freshmen, teenagers, young parents, talented entrepreneurs-who have gotten an STI. Dr. Grimes narrates the story of Liz, who got syphilis; Sofia, diagnosed with gonorrhea and chlamydia; and Zoe, with pubic lice. She describes how Justin got herpes, Sean got trichomoniasis, and Luke contracted hepatitis C. The accounts of these young men and women and their exam-room conversations with their doctors evoke both the physical symptoms and complicated emotional reactions that often go together with infection. Fact sheets throughout the book explain each sexually transmitted infection and answer frequently asked questions about symptoms, treatment, and prevention. The new edition of Seductive Delusions shows how technological advances have speeded doctor-patient communication, including test results and treatment recommendations. It explains simplified STI testing, explores the frighteningly high incidence of date sexual assault, examines dramatic changes in cervical cancer prevention and Pap tests, and clarifies why HPV vaccines are now routinely recommended for all children-boys and girls. Whether reading the book from cover to cover or jumping directly to a specific disease, readers will relate to the dramatic stories while learning medically reliable information. Making emotionally and physically safe decisions about sex is easier when you know how STIs are spread, how to avoid getting one, what their symptoms are, and how they are diagnosed and treated.

Oct.31 — Ben & Jerry’s has a new political flavor: “Pecan Resist.” The Vermont-based ice cream maker is hoping customers pronounce it “PEE-can,” a likely nod to a recent Trump headline. This stunt is nothing new for the company founders, who have openly supported political causes before. In 2009, they changed the name of “Chubby Hubby” to “Hubby Hubby” in support of same-sex marriage. In 2016, they created “Empower Mint” which was made by a bakery with a job-training program. The company says it stands with those who peacefully resist Trump administration policies.
