‘The people mounted Samantha’s breasts,’ complains the owner of a $5,000 ‘intelligent’ sex doll which was left ‘heavily soiled’ after being shown off at a tech fair.
Samantha’s developer Sergi Santos from Barcelona, Spain said that people at the Arts Electronica Festival in Linz treated the doll ‘like barbarians’. The doll – which reacts intelligently to touch, and talks – was left filthy and broken by the never-ending male attention, and has now been sent off for repair. According to Austrian media, who tested Samantha, she reacts when someone massages her breasts, by moaning. Poor, poor Samantha
Santos complained, ‘The people mounted Samantha’s breasts, her legs and arms. Two fingers were broken. She was heavily soiled. Because they did not understand the technology and did not have to pay for it, they treated the doll like barbarians.’ Mr Santos said Samantha had to be sent back in a parcel to Barcelona for repairs and cleaning, but he added: ‘Samantha can endure a lot, she will pull through.’
Previous surveys have suggested that up to half of men would consider having sex with a lifelike robot. Writing last year, David Levy author of Love and Sex With Robots said, ‘This coming wave of sex robots will be humanlike in appearance and size. They will have human-like genitals. And they will allow intercourse according to their owner’s sexual orientation and tastes.
