Survey: Top 10 Reasons Men Want to Own a Sex Robot

While not altogether surprising, the results mirrored a growing concern among sociologists: in a high-tech world, adults often feel disconnected from other “real people.”LONDON – “Why would you want [to own] a sex robot?” That’s the question British adult starlet, lifestyle blogger and self-professed geek Harriet Sugarcookie asked fans in a recent survey. While not altogether surprising, the results mirrored a growing concern among sociologists: in a high-tech world, adults often feel disconnected from other “real people.”

Sugarcookie polled more than 500 men. Respondents could choose more than one option, which ranged from basic (shy with women or lonely) to peculiar (many wanted a partner that “shared the same interests” or they wanted to “show off their super-hot trophy girlfriend”).

Sixty-seven percent of men polled said they simply wanted to have regular sex. Thirty-eight percent said they’d like to live out fantasies they can’t engage in real life. Thirty-five percent indicated they want a partner with “amazing sexual skills” to indulge in “the ultimate sexual luxury… instant gratification.”

Other responses seemed to reflect dissatisfaction with single women. Thirty-one percent said they want a partner who “won’t let them down,’ 21 percent admitted yearning for someone who’ll always listen to them, nearly 15 percent said they seek a woman who “is never sad or upset” and 6 percent said they desire “an old-fashioned girl that doesn’t exist anymore.”

Sugarcookie said the results indicate men mostly want to connect — and sex robots can be designed and programmed to look and act like almost any man’s ideal partner.

“Men tend to be very specific about what they are looking for but, at the same time, they just want to be comfortable around someone else, be themselves, do what interests them — but maybe they can’t or would rather not make the effort,” she said. “For those people, a robotic love doll can essentially replace the human touch and provide a comforting sense of companionship.”
