Okay so, remember the movie “Demolition Man”? You know, the one with Sly Stalone and Wesley Snipes? Yes I agree the movie was wonderful and I enjoyed it still when I saw it last week on DSTV. But I digress. What I want you to recall from the movie is these little puppies.
Demolition Man: More Than Fiction?

Anywho, for those of you still scratching their heads, I am referring to the “Vir-Sex” devices in the movie. You know, what they used to replace sex, as swapping of body fluids had been outlawed and unliscensed pregnancy was illegal? Vir-sex removed all the awkwardness of dating and procreation. Why anyone would want to outlaw sex is beyond my comprehension but hey, it was a movie right? No chance of that ever happening…..right? I mean, right guys?
Why has my mind gone to Vir-Sex, you ask? Why because of THIS CNN article. Yes, for $7000 you can own your very own sex robot. It comes with voice recognition and will speak to you about anything from golf to the war in Iraq. And she’s good at faking it too. Oh joy! Funny thing is how the inventor insists he’s happily married and yet spent three years building a sex robot. (I’m shaking my head right now) People’s priorities are screwed. We have war and famine to consider, diseases to control and eliminate, several issues pertaining to water and energy and yet people with technological know-how are concentrating on providing something a man can pick up in the red light district or sex shop. Such a shame.
We live in a world where computers and the internet have taken over a lot of social niceties. Children text their friends even when they’re sitting right next to them. Serial texters like Reina Hardesty, who confessed that she texted her girlfriends while sitting next to them at her own party, are too addicited to their gadgets and have little time for face to face conversations. Facebook and Twitter take so much of our time that we sometimes have to go cold turkey. I went off facebook for two years and signed in again with a new account. I very well may leave it soon because it’s too distracting. I digress once more….
I think it started with online dating which basically removed the social functions and now we’ve fallen even deeper down the rabbit hole. Is it only a matter of time before we replace sex altogether?
Perhaps I should holla @ Sandra Bullock and ask her where I can get one of those Vir-Sex things. After all, in Demolition Man, “Bullock” (Lenina Huxley) tells “Stalone” (John Spartan) about the Arnold Schwarzenegger Presidential Library. According to the movie, Arnie got so popular from his films that an amendment was passed so he could run for president. Of course, Arnie won. Funny thing is how Arnie is current Governor of California (true story!) and shortly after his election, three senators separately proposed amendments to the US Constitution to allow naturalized citizens to become president.
They foresaw his political ambitions so who’s to say they weren’t right about everything else? 😛
Three seashells anyone? LOL
