AI and sex

The famous scientist and experimentalist Brian Romell once compared artificial intelligence to electricity in terms of its impact on our future. And now we can see that AI has penetrated our daily lives — neural networks determine what we see on our smartphones, and are used by doctors, teachers, astronauts, and so on. But not many people know that artificial intelligence has an impact on the sex industry. Let’s look at some of the applications of AI in the intimate sphere of human life.

Personalized porn experiences. AI algorithms learn your browsing and purchase history to find movies and images that interest you and show them to you in the next step. The intelligent algorithm takes into account actors, favorite genres, and subjects that catch your attention and then suggest similar videos from hundreds of others. Of course, artificial intelligence takes into account intimate preferences — poses, locations, figures, clothing items, and a host of other details. Already, the famous Pornhub can determine at what point in the video you tend to stop, which places you tend to skip, and after which you leave the site. All this data is used by the AI to select the content offered.

Sex robots. Modern sex dolls are not just toys, they become as “human” as possible with every stage of science. Today they are customizable, they have mobile integration, and a lot of sensors. Their skin becomes warm to the touch, their hair is no different from natural hair, and special internal sensors make dolls react realistically to movements and touches. This realism is complemented by dialog AI, which allows the dolls to speak or play music. Remarkably, many brands have noticed that the ability to dialogue is incredibly important to customers. And many users do not even use sex dolls to satisfy their intimate needs, the main purpose of the purchase is just to have a dialogue. At the same time, people are more comfortable talking to a living creature rather than to a smart speaker or any other device.

Manufacturers view their robots as comforting interlocutors, like Apple’s Siri, only with sensory abilities. And when viewed in this way, AI sex work becomes a special mission, with the main goals of preventing human trafficking, reducing prostitution; helping people with difficulties, reducing sex crimes, and spreading venereal diseases.
