When it comes to technology, the sex industry is no laggard, and as robots become more human-like in their appearance and abilities, US-based company TrueCompany is poised to launch Roxxxy – the world's first sex robot - that has many more capabilities than your average sex doll. Apart from having better defined physical features than previous dolls, Roxxxy has been programmed with her own personality and her manufacturers say she can listen, talk, carry on a conversation, feel your touch and respond to it, as well as move her private areas inside when she is being "utilized" to deliver an unforgettable erotic experience. There are even plans for a male version - Rocky the Robot.
Roxxxy is the ninth version of TrueCompanion's sex robot. She began development in 2001.
"Our first sex robot, Trudy, was built in the 1990s and was not designed for resale. Rather, she was a test bed to refine techniques which we would later use in Roxxxy and Rocky TrueCompanion," says designer and partner Douglas Hines.
While Roxxxy might look like a high-end quality doll, Hines assures us that the similarities end there.
Apart from her ability to move certain sections of her anatomy (her three high quality construction "inputs" as he delicately states) she also has a personality which is matched as much as possible to her owner's personality.
"So she likes what you like, dislikes what you dislike, etc. She also has moods during the day just like real people! She can be sleepy, conversational or she can 'be in the mood'," says Hines.
She even has an orgasm!
Roxxxy has a heartbeat and a circulatory system! The circulatory system helps heat the inside of her body.
Apart from the usual options sex dolls come with, purchasers can specify her hair color, hair style, skin tone, makeup selection, etc, (the company can also accommodate custom requests), Hines says Roxxxy owners may decide to have the sex robot use one of her five other pre-programmed personalities:
- Frigid Farrah – reserved and shy
- Wild Wendy – outgoing and adventurous
- S&M Susan – ready to provide your pain/pleasure fantasies
- Young Yoko – barely 18 and waiting for you to teach her
- Mature Martha – very experienced and would like to teach you!
And/or "you can build your own additional girlfriend personalities," adds Hines.
"She interacts just like a human interacts," says Hines. "She hears what you are saying as well as where you are touching her and responds as appropriately as possible."
For instance, if you have Roxxxy using her "Frigid Farrah" personality and you touched her in a private area, more than likely, she will not be too appreciative of your advance. But if your Roxxxy is using the "Wild Wendy" personality, she will want you to do it again!
Roxxxy is flexible enough to allow owners to add to the five preloaded girlfriend profiles and change the existing five personalities to better suit their preferences.
Hines explains that it is possible to share girlfriends (other Roxxxy robots) with other owners by "swapping" them back and forth online.
"For example, you lend your custom-built girlfriend, 'Sexy Susan' to one of your friends online – but he can only 'use' her until Sunday morning and then she needs to be returned to you. Until Sunday morning, he can 'engage' your girlfriend by using your Sexy Susan personality with his Roxxxy sex robot. You also have the option of sharing your girlfriend with everyone in our forum if you would like. You will also have access to everyone else's girlfriends, if they allow them to be shared."
Hines says this is the same as wife or girlfriend-swapping without any of the social issues or sexual disease-related concerns.
"All of these features, which all of our sex robots share, make them truly a unique experience," he says, proudly.
At present, Roxxxy models can only speak English but the company anticipates releasing Japanese, Spanish and German-speaking versions soon.
Hines says the company is pleased to have had thousands of requests to buy the sex robots and has had many inquiries with additional questions.
"When you decide to have your own Roxxxy, you will also be subscribed to a monthly support plan that will cover any general support questions as well as updates to your Roxxxy," says Hines.
"Since the subscription service includes updates, she requires a link to the Internet via Wi-Fi. If necessary, you can hook her up to a network cable if you do not have wireless access at your location."
Who are potential buyers of Roxxxy (and Rocky)?
Hines says the sex robots are helping individuals as well as couples spice up their sex lives as well as giving them a true companion (i.e. TrueCompanion) to share their most erotic fantasies or simply to have someone provide them with companionship and unconditional love.
"We also have many people that have hit a 'dry spell' in their love life or do not have many suitable mates living near them. Other couples want to experience a 'threesome'. We are happy to make our customers' dreams come true with their own TrueCompanion."
For those worried about privacy, Hines states that all information is kept confidential. "Also, all billing and shipments reference the generic computer-sounding company name of our partner company: Data Software Solutions, LLC or Data Software Solutions Support. Roxxxy ain't cheap. This top shelf gal's base price is US$7,000 but as Hines attests, she's not a sex doll, she's a sex robot!
"We have a limited time deep discount program being offered as well as flexible payment plans."
