"World's First Sex Robot" Debuts at AVN

GearLog — TrueCompanion helped kick off the Saturday session of the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo with a press conference in which the site debuted "the world's first sex robot." Meet the Roxxxy TrueCompanion. This doll has an artificial intelligence engine programmed to learn your likes and dislikes. She can listen, feel, and speak to her owner. The doll features five "girlfriend personalities," including, Frigid Farrah, Wild Wendy, Mature Martha, and more.

Why the hell are you going to buy a sex droid and give it a frigid personality? Doesn't that defeat the whole purpose?

Users can also built custom profiles online and swap them with friends.

Umm, ew. I think discussing the personality my friend programmed into his sex droid is way TMI.

The doll goes on sale next week for roughly $7,000-9,000 plus a subscription fee, which is "comparable to a cell plan," according to Roxxxy's creator.

So you can't even buy the thing, you have to make regular rental fees? What happens if you stop paying the subscription fee – is that what triggers "Frigid Farrah"? Or does she start talking to all of your friends and discussing your inadequacies?

When asked what inspiration was for creating the doll, he answered that "after 9/11, I wanted to give back." God bless America.

Yeah, because when those planes hit the World Trade Center on 9/11, the first thing I thought of was freaky kinky sex with inanimate objects.
