When I hear people talk about robots taking jobs away from humans, I think about things like automated assembly lines and self-service ordering kiosks at restaurants. As it turns out, sex workers might be the ones who need to start looking into another profession.
A company called Lumidolls opened up the worldâ€™s first sex robot brother in Barcelona, Spain, earlier this year to much acclaim, and the success of the bizarre business has already sparked global aspirations.
â€śWe are still negotiating with interested investors, but we have not yet closed any deals,â€ť a company spokesman said, referring to the possibility of opening â€śfranchises in other countriesâ€ť so that the rest of the world can get in on the action.
How does a sex brothel even work? Lumidoll describes a customized experience that caters to anything and everything the guest desires.
â€śCustomers choose the LumiDoll with which they want to spend the time that they determine. They call us and make your reservation,â€ť the spokesman said. â€śIf they want the LumiDoll to be dressed in a certain way, or they want them to wait in some specific position, they also ask us to.â€ť
â€śWith LumiDolls, customers can perform any of their sexual fantasies they do not dare to do with a woman. This allows them to fulfill their wildest fantasies that maybe with other people they cannot, maybe they have some physical complex that does not allow them to be comfortable with a person, and with a doll it makes this much easier,â€ť he continued.
Given the stigma surrounding sex with inanimate objects, there is a veil of secrecy surrounding LumiDollâ€™s operations. Customers â€“ who pay about $100 per hour with the dolls â€“ are given the address of their hookup site discretely and can select specific dolls from a range of personalities and physical attributes.
