Creepy or not, the porn industry has been a prime technological innovator since the early days of the internet, because the world is full of horny people, mostly men, willing to shell out loads of money for it. Guess what? It’s not only the Japanese who consume porn. Imagine that? It is perhaps no surprise that the Japanese are leading the way in virtual sex, but you are clueless if you think only the Japanese would invent a robot vagina. Oh my, how naive you are, ignorant—virtual sex has been predicted in WESTERN sci-fi literature for 50+ years—and/or sexually repressed (how else to explain your redirected outrage at the ‘perverted’ Japanese?) So instead of making uninformed, broad, overreaching generalizations about an entire country based on a sex toy that the Americans were going to make anyway (what’s a Fleshlight, but a primitive version of this?), maybe do us thinking people a favor and not say anything at all.
