What the Bible actually says about sex robots, (give or take a letter)
Mordecai had a 'cousin' named Hadassah, whom he had bought up because she had neither father nor mother. This young woman, who was also known as Esther, had a lovely figure and was beautiful.
It's the worst sin. Sex robot users anger God and will go to HELL, Christian preachers spout.
Sex robots are warped copies of real humans and sinners who use them will be condemned to hell, leading Christians have claimed.
One sex robot named Samantha, 'who likes to be touched' and has eight different modes, including romantic and family mode, is already on sale worldwide. And now a few Christians have been whingeing to the Daily Star about the morality of sex
Dr Richard Land, president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary, in North Carolina, US, said:
Sex with a non-human is rebelling against God. The widespread use of sex robots could have catastrophic consequences for human relationships.
Referring to a passage in Corinthians 6 in the Bible, Dr Land said perverting God's purpose for sex is the worst kind of sin. He said:
The Bible is very clear that god created sex to make two people one person. Any sexual relationship that violates that purpose for sex is rebelling against God. That would include sex with a non-human, for instance a robot.
Dr Christopher Benek, religious commentator and pastor in South Florida, US, said someone who has sex with a robot risks separation from God and being sent to hell. In traditional Christianity, it is a sin to commit idolatry...the worship of an
idol, icon or statue.
A DUBLIN brothel leasing out a realistic sex doll has attracted hundreds of new customers...and now wants to expand
The star attraction Passion Dolly has whopping 32EE boobs and responds to human contact
The Irish brothel made headlines last month after posting an advert on Dublin.BackPage.com offering punters the chance to rent out a lifelike sex doll for £80-an-hour. Now, another month on, one of the owners told Daily Star Online the
overwhelmingly positive response has given them impetus to expand the business rapidly. One of the owners said:
My idea is to expand the business to other cities and countries. Once we're more established in Dublin, we will try to expand throughout Europe.
Currently customers can visit eight stone Passion Dolly in one of the brothel's rooms for £80-an-hour or £40 per half hour.
Dave Lampert is a husband, father, and rural Illinois farm boy. He is also the creator of what may be the world's most storied sex toy: the Sybian, a 22-pound, saddle-style appliance equipped with a gyrating, rotating dildo and clitoral
We launched quietly, without much advertising and not knowing exactly how the Sybian would be embraced, Lampert, now in his eighties and recently retired, told Vocativ. What would later follow could only be described as Sybian madness.
Within months, the thousand-dollar-plus machinery would gain an outsized reputation in the adult entertainment community -- and later, in a more mainstream world after live Sybian demos became a regular feature on the Howard Stern Show. Lampert
himself even appeared on the radio show once, coaxing a pornographic actress through what she estimated to be about 15 or 20 orgasms in less than five minutes.
Sex toys are banned in a backward corner of Georgia. The city of Sandy Springs enacted an ordinance in May 2004, banning the open display of vibrators
and sex toys by retailers and requiring a doctor's prescription to purchase such a device.
The 11th Circuit of appeals courts will now hold an en banc rehearing (with all the judges from the court) on a challenge to the sex toy ban that it previously upheld citing a 2004 precedent.
The ban prompted a string of lawsuits arguing that the ordinance was an unconstitutional invasion of privacy. However a federal judge in Atlanta upheld the ban, and in August 2016, an 11th Circuit panel upheld that decision, saying that it was
bound by its 2004 ruling in Williams v. Attorney General ( Williams IV ), challenging a similar ban in an Alabama city. The appeals court noted at the time:
Although we are sympathetic to the Appellant's Fourteenth Amendment Due Process claim, we are constrained by our prior precedent in Williams IV , and we are obligated to follow it -- even though convinced it is wrong. The Appellants are free to
petition the court to reconsider our decision en banc, and we encourage them to do so.
Presumably a multiple judge hearing is able to overrule previous precedents.
Shortly after the news that the appeal court would hear a legal challenge to a city sex toy ban, the
council has backed down and has now repealed the repressive law.
Sandy Springs City Council repealed the local law known as the sexual device ordinance. The local ordinance was patterned on one that had been adopted by the Georgia state legislature, but that was later invalidated, leaving Sandy Springs
as one of the few communities in Georgia which retains a similar ban. A council spokesperson said:
[The] code now matches up with state law regarding adult devices by not prohibiting the sale of such devices.
While council members refused to comment on the repeal after the vote, City Attorney Wendell Willard told reporters that the law, which was enacted in 2009 and has been the subject of several lawsuits, was unnecessary and expendable.
However it seems likely that the reson for the repeal was that the law's defence was proving too expensive. A council debate on the litigation revealed concerns that the city's insurance company balking at paying the legal bills for
some of the lawsuits the city has faced thanks to its restrictive adult business laws.
A brothel full of sex dolls has opened up in Barcelona, Spain.
Lumi Dolls offers four models that anyone can reserve for a set amount of time. Thanks to new technology , Lumi Dolls brags that its dolls are among the most realistic on the market -- and they cost around euro 120 per hour. The brothel offers
other services as well, including overnight stays and options for couples.
Each of the models come complete with a sort of character page on the Lumi Dolls website, which houses a description of the doll's anatomy, creative inspiration, and what to look forward to in the doll's room.
Noticeably absent from the Lumi Dolls cast are any male doll models. And it's not like the technology doesn't exist. It would seem that the company believes straight men are set to be the most lucrative market, at least for now.
Lumi Doll's products might not have artificial intelligence yet , but there are various sex doll companies working on implementing A.I. into their toys . Regardless, opening up a sex doll brothel is a step toward developing these sorts of
creations and services.
Fewer sex toys than children's toys contain dangerous chemicals, according to a new report by a Swedish inspection authority.
In its study conducted in 2016, 2% of the 44 surveyed sex toys that had been imported to Sweden contained banned chemicals, the Swedish Chemicals Agency (SCA) said. In a separate study the year before, the agency tested 112 children's toys in Sweden and
found 15% contained banned chemical substances, including lead. An inspector told AFP:
This was a bit surprising. This was the first time we did such a study.
Of the 44 sex toys examined, only one plastic dildo was found to contain a banned substance: chlorinated paraffins, which is suspected of causing cancer.
Three of the 44 examined sex toys, made of artificial leather and bondage tape, contained a type of phthalates used as a plasticiser at levels above a 0.1% threshold, the agency said. That specific type of phthalates is not banned in sex toys but is on
the EU list of chemicals of very high concern .
