Will Governments Outlaw Child Sex Robots?

by Admin on February 13, 2020

Sex robots are no longer a thing of the future.

There are now at least four major companies selling sex robots, ranging from $5,000 to $15,000.

One of the aforementioned companies specializes in child sex robots.

Governments around the world are now scrambling to decide how they should deal with the child sex robot trade. Should they regulate it or leave people to their own devices?

As of now, almost not governments have specific laws on the books prohibiting the buying or selling of child sex robots, but the child sex robot debate is beginning to rise in prominence.

Some governments, like the UK, are increasingly alarmed and have begun using existing laws to crack down on importing child sex robots.

Chaninat and Leeds is a law firm in Thailand specializing in family law matters, criminal cases, and civil litigation.

The UK’s Crown Prosecution Services (CPS) specifically turned to an 1876 law that banned the import of “obscene” items.

More than a handful of individuals were prosecuted in the UK for seeking to import child sex robots under this legal pretense.

But the question remains: while child sex robots are morally abhorrent, should they be banned considering no one is getting hurt?

Here’s how John Danaher, a law lecturer at the National University of Ireland summarizes the opposing arguments:

Child sex dolls are inanimate, human-like artifacts used for the purposes of sexual stimulation and gratification. But, given current technological trends, it is quite likely that people will create animate and robotized forms of these dolls in the near future. They are already doing this with adult forms of sex dolls. This raises the obvious question: what should the legal system do about these devices? Should we follow the lead of the CPS and look to ban their development, sale and use? Or should we permit them to be created on the grounds that, unlike other forms of child pornography, the creation of a child sex robot or doll does not involve any direct harm to real children?

But the question goes even deeper than that.

Those in favor of leaving child sex robots unregulated argue that–in addition to being an issue of personal freedom–they could actually lead to less sexual violence against minors due to allowing those with that specific urge to harmlessly flush it from their system.

Prohibition-types argue, however, that the opposite is the case.

By allowing individuals to purchase and use child sex robots, they will be more likely to want to perform acts on sexual children in real life.

Ultimately, more research is needed to conclude which side is right.
