The co-creator of a sex robot appeared on British talk show “This Morning” to defend the new addition to his family, and his words aren’t exactly a resoundingly positive note for the sex robot community.
Arran Squire, 36, introduced his sex robot, “Samantha,” to incredulous talk show hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, who were a little put off by the hyper-realistic figure.
The conversation turned stranger when Squire noted that his children often talk to the £4,000 (roughly $5,300) robot.
In a seeming effort to defend against his product’s propensity to allow humans to practice domestic violence, Squire noted that the robot only responds romantically when treated nicely.
But Samantha’s debut was not received kindly by many, who dubbed Squire “perverted” and “strange.”
He has now doubled down, saying there is nothing wrong with having a passion for sex robots.
“I have been working on this for four years with the creator Serge. My wife has always been supportive,” he said.
“We get some strange reactions when we tell people what we are doing, but we are not perverts and these dolls are not for perverts,” he told the Daily Post.
Samantha shocked viewers when she spoke live on air, proclaiming, ”I can take many times, much more love. Just because you can give it, and I take it all.”
Arran added: “They can be used for normal professional couples. People can have a threesome with the dolls and we have tried it out ourselves. There is nothing weird about the doll and it is to help people, not replace women.”
The interview turned downright bizarre when Squire’s wife came to the robot’s defense.
Hannah Nguyen, 38, said: “Me, as a woman, I am not offended to have her around.
“I am not worried she will replace me. She is just someone there like a family member.
“Yes, we’ve had fun with her. There is no worry about someone else or an affair. We don’t have to worry about disease.”
