Lonely during lockdown? Well, you’re not alone (I mean, you are, but you’re not). I’ve talked before about the wonders of virtual dating during the pandemic, but even that lacks a certain “physical” touch element. So in the midst of quarantine, I guess it’s no surprise that many lonely souls are turning to sex dolls to fill the role of their lockdown hunny.
What may actually BE a bit of a surprise is that those dolls aren’t just for sex. I read an article recently that talked about how easily we humans develop feelings for what we know are just dumb, unthinking pieces of technology. You can trace this at least as far back as 1966, when a very early and primitive “conversation simulator” called ELIZA was first programmed.
