Sex robot firm teams up with FBI following surge in requests for 'childlike bots'

A sex robot firm has warned of a surge in the number of customers asking for ‘child bots’, and has teamed up with the FBI to catch them.

Michael Wilson, part-owner of Realdoll, has revealed that his firm regularly passes information from customer enquiries to the FBI.

Speaking to SexTechGuide, Mr Wilson explained: “I actually have no problem saying this we have connections with, with the FBI.

“Actually, because we get a lot of people that want children dolls and things along those lines. I have mixed feelings on that.”

The dangers of childlike sex robots have been widely debated for years.

While many argue that sex dolls resembling children could serve as a gateway to real-life child abuse, others claim that having sex with a robot minor prevents harm coming to a human child.

Realdoll does not currently make childlike sex robots, but Mr Wilson claims he’s not completely against the idea.

He explained: “If there was this, like, a study done that was 100% unequivocally for sure, 100%…. [that said] if we made child dolls, it would prevent and not open a door to more, but actually prevent any hurt coming to children.

“We had a researcher actually come in here and interview most of our staff for about a week asking a lot of questions for a paper that she was writing about sexual deviancy in regards to using dolls to replace or subvert those desires.

“And at the time, this was only a couple years ago, there wasn’t a lot of data to support that it would actually stop it. Actually, some data even pointed that it could increase those desires.”

However, if a customer currently request a childlike sex doll through the Realdoll website, their request will be sent on to the FBI.

Mr Wilson added: “Essentially we just have a contact that we send emails to with names and stuff like that in the event that that’s it.

“I mean, I’m guessing those people are already on a list because if there’s they’re sending you that email they’re probably already looking at porn that’s questionable.”
