Via Marginal Revolution, Robin Marantz Henig writes about the coming of the sexbots in the New York Times. I don’t know much about the plausibility of all this, but I found it disappointing that Henig did not speculate about the social impact this would cause. She really should read the Danimal. Some other recommended readings are another writer I found through Ilkka Kokkarinen and a paper I found through a commenter here.
