“Sex Slaves” for Sale!

February 10, 2018

“Sex Slaves” for Sale!

Well, well, well. Look what we have here.

Sexual Robots, under the complete control of their owner! They are never not-in-the-mood, they never “have a head-ache” and they are never too tired to “make love”. They never say NO to what used to be called deviant sexual behavior.

You could be a pot-bellied, stinky, unattractive really old man and your “Playboy Poster dream-girl” will always be horny for you. She will never complain when your sexual performance is not what it once was, even if it ever was! 

Given all of this slave-like sexual servitude (without pay!), I think I will take the parenthesizes off the words sex slaves.

You should note that inventors are also developing male sex slaves. As you know liberals claim to hate sexism (overwhelming evidence to the contrary).

There can be no doubt that science and technology have a stunningly powerful effect upon cultural evolution.

With the development of the computer, cell phones and various other internet-connected devises, many of our youth, and older people too, have increasingly retreated from reality into cyberspace and its amazing fantasy world. This trend has been developing for around five or six generations.

As a practicing psychologist, for about 40 years, I have increasingly seen shy and introverted young people and adults withdrawing from social contact into the world of cyberspace. Of course, in my practice, I see a skewed sample of people, not a random sample of the general population.

However, there is a growing body of scientific evidence that there is an  association between individual’s increased use of social media and their social isolation. As yet, the causes of this correlation are not known and it will take research to more powerfully assert such attributions.

The following is but one study among many others. However, non-scientific anecdotal evidence is available for all to see.

Of course, the world of sexual fantasy is nothing new and it has preceded robot sex slaves by thousands of years, as the Kuma Sutra and other relatively crude historical sexual depictions prove.

Starting in the 1960, America legalized the creation of pornography and its wide distribution in all forms. Increased cinematographic technology supplied a pre-existing, seemingly insatiable appetite, with increasingly explicit sexual  depictions, including those formerly categorized as deviant.

Along with this cultural evolution, a wide variety of relatively crude “sexual toys”, simple inanimate objects, “sex aids”, became widely available for purchase in “adult” book stores and XXX mail order outlets.

Depending upon one’s sexual appetite, perhaps the most laughable  invention was the inflatable sex doll, which was essentially a large  reconfigured inflatable plastic beach ball.

I judge that these cultural evolution’s have not been good for our society.

Fast forward to 2018 and consider the following dose of reality.

If the following offends you, I certainly apologize for what is a reality therapy session. If you think you will be offended by the display of sexual robots, do not open he following videos.

It is said that ignorance can be bliss. This may sometimes be true until, that is, our ignorance begins to damage our live’s, those of our loved ones…and others upon which the emotional health and welfare of our culture depends. 

I hope you will give some thought to how the following technological developments will likely influence the course of a population’s social and emotional development. 

Of course, the following videos tout the many personal advantages of owning sexual robots. Counter-arguments consider the dehumanizing of sexuality, the possibility of learning to dominate and sexually abuse real human beings and the the deepening isolation from real people it may bring to many.

Perhaps the presence of sexual robots could be an advantage to an overpopulating world. However, it seems likely that the correlation of education and the disposable income necessary to afford to own and maintain a sexual robot favors a reduction of procreation within the most capable segments of any developing population. This would not seem beneficial to any society.

But, if I could accuratley predict the future I would be a very wealthy man…I can not and I am not.

Still, this old psychologist doubts that the proliferation of robotic sex slaves will be an unalloyed evolutionary blessing. There is just too much room in this development for increasing unsocial and antisocial conditioning and learning outcomes within populations.

Assuming increasing popularity, the significant expense of these first generation robotic “sex slaves” ($4,000 to over $50,000) will lower their expense to the point that they will become affordable to large numbers of people in advanced societies.

What follows is XXX rated; well kinda, sorta…maybe not-so-much to many. 

You be the judge.

American Social “Freedom” = Social Chaos = Cultural Decline

December 23, 2012

American Social “Freedom” = Social Chaos = Cultural Decline
The following remark is from Gonzo, a fellow blogger who is not afraid to think intelligently about various social issues. I hope you will read his remarks and my response to them. I judge that we are both spot-on regarding some of the problems with the cultural design of modern America. I encourage you to visit Gonzo’s blog. His address is included in my blog roll, on the bottom right side of my blog page.
The following is written by Gonzo:

I am, at best, an arm-chair quarterback when it comes to discussing sociological and psychological phenomenons. But I can’t help but wonder if the one avenue of thought might be better described as “conditioning”.

What conditioning toward violence are the following having on young minds, (young minds that grow to adulthood)?:

Violence on television, which has been increasing with regularity and realism. -Violence in movies, which has been increasing with regularity and realism. -Violence in music, which has been increasing 8 fold and is combined with messages of hate toward various groups of people. -Violence in games, which has been increasing in intensity and realism. -The increasing presence of psychotropic drugs which have interactions in the human mind in ways that still are not fully understood. -The growing and UNDISCLOSED list of everyday products that contain fluoride, a poison that is known to cause violent outbursts in some people. (In water supplies, dental products, multi-vitamins, huge doses in SSRI’s, many other pharma drugs, in our foods from fertilizers and pesticides, teas, vaccines, soda, milk, added to some processed foods, others). -Lack of other examples of dealing with conflict other than with violence.

Again, I may be wrong, but it seems that once the conditioning has been accomplished, that the next step is a trigger and opportunity. The sad reality is that people receive more conditioning from the aforementioned list than from sources such as examples of conflict management w/o violence, spirituality, forgiveness, etc.

We don’t need fewer guns, we need better conditioning on how to live as a peaceful people, engaged with one another, and living life with spiritual purpose. We also need awareness of the poisons affecting our lives, whether psychological or chemical, and truth in labeling.

End of Gonzo’s remarks.

My response follows:

Gonzo,

Correct you are about the concept of conditioning! You have been doing a lot of good studying in your “arm-chair”.

The term is a correct and technical one for one form of learning that has to do with temporal association of stimuli, either Classical/Pavlovian or Operant in nature. These forms of learning indeed account for a great deal of the most important behaviors that we do to our physical environment and to our social environment. Broader in scope is Social Learning Theory, which also accounts for a great deal of important learning in humans. The many psychological principles in this field include modeling and imitation and other forms of vicarious learning. However, stimulus associations and conditioning are part of all of the forms of learning identified in humans.

I judge that virtually everything that psychology has discovered about human learning is operating against the welfare of America’s individuals and its culture as a result of legalized drugs, legalized pornography, and legalized gambling; Permissive standards on profanity, violence, and sex or sexual innuendo in the popular media; Liberalized marriage and divorce rules; Deinstitutionalization of  dangerous mental patients, liberalization of civil committment rules for the severely mentally ill, liberalized judicial and penal practices, liberalized child protection laws, liberalized educational practices, the governmental undermining of  spiritually based morality in all sectors of our society, and much more.

All of this, and much more, in America is best described as a culture of permissiveness. Some view this state of permissiveness as “freedom” for the individual, when actually it is a predicament of destructive social chaos. Under conditions of permissiveness most of the naturally occurring conditioning and learning principles tend to yield maladaptive behavior in individuals and cultural outcomes that are destructive to America’s survival.

The principles and mechanisms of this powerful process bad behavioral contagion are well understood, but America stupidly ignores them.
