Sex dolls in 2022 – what’s happened in the last four years?

  • In 2018, agencies researched the feathery world of sex dolls, and despite their long history, it’s actually an industry in its formative years. At the beginning of the epidemic, the industry began to cause a stir in the commercial arena, and now, four years later, we revisit the industry to see how much it has changed.

    In the initial survey, it was evident that there was a high demand for these dolls in the market and that people wanted AI to enhance the experience of sex doll owners. As is often the case in technological innovation, the industry is new, but growing very fast. Some experts predict that the industry will soon innovate faster than the necessary regulatory requirements.
    We also found that there are widely differing views on the moral and ethical issues surrounding sex dolls and their use.
    Times are changing and trends are shifting

    The world has changed dramatically since 2018. The Hong Kong riots, the war in Europe, and the most life-changing event of all, the New Crown epidemic, have seen a surge in online activity as regional closures have taken place.
    Before the New Crown outbreak, about half of people said they preferred shopping online to brick-and-mortar stores. Since the New Crown epidemic, about 85 percent of people say they prefer shopping on their computers or through their cell phones to going to a brick-and-mortar store, a dramatic and dramatic shift in buying habits, according to a survey on the Web.
    The growth in online shopping is due in part to increased demand for adult products and sex technology. According to a survey by doll brand SULREBOR, online adult products sales in the country grew by 13% in 2020. This trend is reflected globally. In Canada, sales of adult products increased by 135% and in Italy, sales increased by 71% during the first closure.
    A society in need of “love”

    During the epidemic, human contact was constantly and severely restricted. Malls, parks and other recreational areas were closed, single adults were isolated, and even some couples and couples were forced to live apart, unable to communicate in the most natural way. As traditional methods of dating and intimacy diminish, people are seeking different solutions.
    With the growth in sales of adult products, many dating apps and websites have seen a significant increase in membership sign-ups. Spending too much time at home, many people are starting to look for new ways to relieve themselves in a safe way. According to SDG, a U.S. adult products company, demand for their products increased by more than 51 percent in February and March 2020, which includes single men and women, as well as heterosexual and same-sex couples.

    How have sex dolls progressed?

    In 2018, a sex doll robot that uses AI and has the ability to learn was introduced abroad for the first time. It was designed to respond to the user’s preferences by controlling a chip via a mobile app and can be adjusted to the user’s needs. The CEO of the business said that developing AI software for sex dolls was very complex and that in addition to creating a new gender for the robot, they had to create a preference in appearance that would appeal to the market.
    Currently, experts in the sex doll business are working on ways to incorporate automatically heated, self-lubricating sensitive areas into the robot. However, for safety reasons, it may take several years before a new generation of sex dolls is acceptable to the public.

    Lack of regulation poses moral, psychological and physical threats

    According to a group of researchers, the development of sex doll robots is entirely in an unregulated field. Some argue, “Some dolls are programmed to create violent scenarios.” “It’s a huge gray area because one side of the argument believes it will prevent real-life violence, while the opponents believe it will deepen the desire to commit crimes.”
    In Japan, sex dolls have settled the taboo. A Japanese client who claims to have a special fetish has developed a custom-made doll that he says is a preventive measure to help him satisfy his fantasies and prevent him from breaking the law. Critics say it will only allow him to practice his desires before taking extreme measures and repeating his actions in real life.
    Whether their stance is for or against sex dolls being used to satisfy certain taboos, most agree that industry legislation is sorely lacking.

    What is the future of sex dolls?

    The future of sex dolls will combine artificial intelligence with human-like physical responses. Choose from over 20 different personalities including shy, kind, insecure, jealous, funny, talkative, intelligent and happy. Through learning, it will be possible to understand the user’s preferences for food, entertainment, music, and of course, sexual preferences. It can even learn about the user’s past, family, and process this information to create a surreal conversation. In the future, more advanced sex dolls will be designed to simplify this artificial learning process, making conversations with dolls even more realistic.
    In terms of simulating physical responses, a combination of internal and external sensors is currently being developed. These sensors will be touch-sensitive and connected to the doll’s heating system to respond appropriately when touched by a person.
    Future sex dolls will also feature facial recognition technology so they can identify users and distinguish between people they know and people they have never met. Eventually, sex dolls will be fully mobile, able to walk, talk and react like robots or even humans. One thing sex dolls will never do, however, is empathize. When it is possible to have a relationship with a doll that does not require compromise, the question remains – how will this affect our ability to build relationships in real life?
