Could sex with robots help extend human life spans? Some futurists seem to think so.
A Nov. 7 article on the futurist website Transhumanity argues that robot lovers could help extend life spans by giving users mind-blowing "longevity orgasms" far superior in quality to those from human "meat-bag" partners.

The link between orgasms and health is not unexplored. Some have argued that orgasms have significant health benefits, and "The Longevity Project," a book about an eight-decade study of long-life factors, observed that women with higher frequency of orgasm during sex lived longer.
But assuming robots can do it better than humans, is there necessarily a correlation between the quality of orgasm and longevity? Or is frequency of climax the most important factor?
If the latter is the case, then a sex robot's superior skills in the sack might be less of a game changer than the fact that a sexbot will never be too tired or unwilling to get it on.
Still, the futurist scouting report on longevity orgasms sounds pretty complex.
"[Sexbots will] be more desirable, patient, eager, and altruistic than their meat-bag competition, plus they’ll be uploaded with supreme sex-skills from millennia of erotic manuals, archives and academic experiments, and their anatomy will feature sexplosive devices... They’ll offer us quadruple-tongued cunnilingus, open-throat silky fellatio, deliriously gentle kissing, transcendent nipple tweaking, g-spot massage & prostate milking dexterity, plus 2,000 varieties of coital rhythm with scented lubes."
At the moment, it appears humanity will have to wait and see if "shrieking, frothy, bug-eyed, amnesia-inducing orgasms" administered by sex robots provide the key to longevity.
Mid-century was also the sexbot timeframe given by artificial intelligence expert Dr. Robert Levy in his book, "Love and Sex With Robots," which postulates that it would be entirely possible for humans to fall in love with their robotic partners.
