Soon, Your Sex Doll Will Have An Intelligent Conversation With You

Stop trying to get Siri to talk dirty and get ready for sex dolls with an artificially naughty mind.

In 2013, we reported that robot handjobs would be our future.

We were wrong.

That's because a deep, interpersonal connection during intimate moments adds a lot of value to a sexual experience. But the problem was that until now, you needed another human to form that special bond.

Enter Matt McMullen, the inventor behind RealDoll, who promises a filthy utopia where sex dolls with artificial intelligence can substitute not just for the body, but for the mind.

His RealDolls are lifelike, silicone sex dolls that currently cost between $5,000 and $10,000. For now, they're just dolls -- but he's developing an artificial intelligence that will analyze and respond to your dirty talk, The New York Times reports.

He's working with a team of AI designers and engineers to build a RealDoll out of what you see in the video above: A robo-female who can respond to questions and movements as if she were human.

"What do you dream about?" McMullen asks the AI on the screen.

"I have a lot of dreams," she responds. "I dream about becoming a real person, about having a real body. I dream about knowing the meaning of love. I hope to become the world’s first sex robot."

The AI is in its development phase, but McMullen says that in two years, you'll be able to buy a robotic head for about $10,0000 that blinks and talks back.

And don't worry, if you've already dropped a few grand on a RealDoll, the new robotic head can attach to your old model.

It's not impossible to believe that humans will fall in love with their robots, either. As Radiolab has reported, there are already numerous examples of the human mind ignoring the fact that it's talking with a robot. In fact, in many cases, we don't even need a robot to sound real in order to develop a connection.

Plus, the most recent polling numbers show that one in five of you would have sex with a robot, regardless of its human characteristics.
