Sex workers in Amsterdam will have a hard time finding work if two New Zealand academics' vision of the future comes true.
"In 2050, Amsterdam's red light district will all be about android prostitutes who are clean of sexual transmitted infections, not smuggled in from Eastern Europe and forced into slavery, the city council will have direct control over android sex workers controlling prices, hours of operations and sexual services," write futurologist Ian Yeoman and sexologist Michelle Mars.
The duo's paper, Robots, Men And Sex Tourism, published in the journal Futures, centres on an imaginary future sex club in Amsterdam called Yub-Yum.
It posits that sex tourists will dish out big cash for all-inclusive robot sex romps.
This will be a big win for Amsterdam, they say, as the city will keep drawing huge swaths of randy tourists willing to empty their pockets, but avoid all the downsides, like drugs, violence and underage exploitation.
The sex-bots will even be made from bacteria resistant fibre, the Victoria University of Wellington academics predict.

Once there’s robots for that that kind of tourism is dead, why travel to Amsterdam for a sex robot when you can just order one from Amazon for home delivery, free with Prime membership.

The secret service will be pleased with this info. If Obama had a robot, it would look like Z20543.
It's an interesting topic to think about - I'm wholly against the sex trade but would robots be acceptable to me? Would it still lead to people basing their lives around a biological function (gays, sex addicts, adulterers, etc) or would it just be an advanced form of masturbation?
Would it become popular for wives to buy their husbands a sex robot for their anniversary? Or vice-versa? Would they advance the societal slide into degeneration or serve as a stopgap making sex just like a pill to take allowing society to move away from its sexual obsessions?
