Robot Dildo Banned From CES, Making Me Question the Point of Robots and CES

If we aren’t building robots for sex, I’m not really sure why we’re building robots. We’ve all pretty much agreed that we’re going to fuck robots. People are building robot brothels and every year we hear about the updates in robot fucking technology at CES and other tech shows.

This year, CES gave an award to a pussy-eating robot called the Osé, but later took it back and banned the device from the show.

Lora DiCarlo, which is the name of the company and not a person, describes the device like this: “Osé uses advanced micro-robotics to mimic all of the sensations of a human mouth, tongue, & fingers, for an experience that feels just like a real partner, no need for desensitizing vibration. It even adapts to your body for a personal fit that hits all the right spots – because there are better uses for your hands.”

The company explains the situation at length (and girth, am I right ladies) in an open letter on their website.

It turns out CES decided it was “obscene”.

Entries deemed by CTA in their sole discretion to be immoral, obscene, indecent, profane or not in keeping with CTA’s image will be disqualified. CTA reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any entry at any time which, in CTA’s opinion, endangers the safety or well being of any person, or fails to comply with these Official Rules.

Which, as the letter goes on to point out, is insane because they have all manner of sex robots there every year.

It’s also important to note that a literal sex doll for men launched on the floor at CES in 2018 and a VR porn company exhibits there every year, allowing men to watch pornography in public as consumers walk by. Clearly CTA has no issue allowing explicit male sexuality and pleasure to be ostentatiously on display. Other sex toys have exhibited at CES and some have even won awards, but apparently there is something different, something threatening about Osé, a product created by women to empower women.

Then in an even more insulting and frankly ridiculous assertion Gary Shapiro (CTA president and CEO) and Karen Chupka (Executive VP) sent a letter stating that our product was actually ineligible for the Robotics and Drone category entirely. Seriously? Our product that was designed in partnership with a top university robotics engineering laboratory (Oregon State University has ranked the #4 ranked Robotics Lab in the US), inspiring the genesis of OSU Professor John Parmigiani’s Prototype Development Lab. Osé is the subject of eight pending patents and counting for robotics, biomimicry, and engineering feats. We have a team of absolute genius woman and LGBTQI engineers (and a few wonderful men) working on every aspect of this product — including a Doctor of Mechanical Engineering with expertise in Robotics and AI and a Mechanical Design Engineer who specializes in Material Science with a background in Chemistry. Osé clearly fits the Robotics and Drone category – and CTA’s own expert judges agree.

I’m going to be honest here, I don’t see a reason here other than some dude went “eww, vaginas are nasty. Unless they’re robotic.” It’s very hard to make a case that this isn’t a case of gender bias, and I think that’s bad. If women want a pussy-eating miniature robot, then by god they should have one. Sex robots are good. Let women have them, too. Although I do have one issue here.

a product created by women to empower women.

Shut the fuck up about empowering women. It’s giving you an orgasm. If having orgasms was empowering, the world would be run by teenage boys. I’d have been declared God-King when I was 13.
