“In the Future, Humans Create A.I.”
“Three Days Later They Have Sex With It…”
If robot hookers existed, would you have sex with them? Of course! So would I, or any other semi-rational science fiction fan of Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner, or Space Camp. No, that’s not the question. The real question is, why don’t we have sex robots now? Where the hell are you on that one science? Sure, you’re real quick to get us stickey pads and George Foreman grills, but you can’t produce at least one trick turning cyber vixen? wtf science? Could you at least advance the Roomba to a point where does more than mop the floor in a literal sense? C’mon!
Okay, so at the moment we can’t have robo sex (dammit), but we can at least pretend such a thing might someday exist by watching a very funny web series that explores the would be future of robot prostitution. Created by Adam Lash and Kevin Gilligan, Gigahoes is a mockumentary web series about a future escort agency that deals in “sex-bots.” Each episode follows the exploit of one of their sex robots as it performs for various weirdos and sex addicts.
There’s a real “Clerks” like charm about this series that I enjoyed. Yeah, It has a sort of low budget feel, but the writing and acting are excellent, and each episode goes deeper down the rabbit hole (kind of literally in one show) of weird sexual exploits with out being over the top and remaining very witty. The series features a talented cast, including creators Lash and Gilligan, along with Jessica Park, Malorie Bryant, Kimberlee Walker, Daniel Florio, and KL Thomas. My only critism of the show is it’s lack of science fiction. I think a show about future sex robots, like this one, is a brilliant idea, but would benefit from looking at the low budget science fiction of the 1980’s, like Dr. Who and Red Dwarf. I think they should go nuts (figuratively) with the wardrobe and sets! “Fake future” it up a little bit to pull us into the 2030’s. Right now the show feels too much like 2014 -15, but (y’know) with sex droids.
All the same though, this is a fun series and well worth a look. Plus, if a sex droid that looked like Jessica Park or Kimberlee Walker did exist, I could see myself calling up an order. Maybe bring her to my place… call her “Vicki”… then have her wear a puffy red dress and white appron… and bake me some cookies… and don’t judge me! Every red blooded American male who grew up in the ’80’s has had that fantasy at least once, and if you haven’t, then go back to Russia you commie! Jesus, at least I wouldn’t call her “Johnny Five”… well, not at first…
