Sex robots may lead to a birth rate crisis in Japan

One expert warned that sex robots may fuel the birth rate crisis in Japan because lonely men chose AI girlfriends.


As fewer and fewer babies are born, the country’s population is rapidly shrinking, and one coffin warns that the Japanese are facing “endangered species”.

In 2018, approximately 921,000 babies were born in Japan – 25,000 fewer than in 2017.

According to the Japanese Ministry of Health, this is the lowest number since records began in 1899.

About 1.3 million people died in the same year, which meant a population reduction of 448,000.

A leading artificial intelligence expert (AI) warns that the popularity of playful robots may exacerbate the problem.

Dr. Kate Devlin, Senior Lecturer in Social and Cultural Artificial Intelligence at King’s College London, told Daily Star Online: “People are worried that in a country like Japan, loneliness is a big social problem, and robots may make things worse.

“There is already an AI’ girlfriend.”

But the robot is not just replacing the people in the bedroom she warned.

Dr. Devlin added: “For those who are interested in buying a female version of the robot, they often look for a partner.”

Last year, an RT documentary called Substitutes revealed a worrying trend in sex doll addiction.

It focuses on life-size love dolls – fake identity silicon women – is fueling “a sense of loneliness and alienation.”

Sex dolls are not just Japanese, but sales of playful creations are booming.

In 2017, the doll company’s Dutch wife revealed that more than 2,000 inconspicuous sex machines (worth £4,600) were sold in Japan alone.

Sex doll salesman Noburu Tanaka said to RT: “This is an amazing feeling.

“It looks like a doll, but you think it’s really active.

“When you make love for your wife, there may be some problems. With the doll, it doesn’t matter.”

Death of Brown

Kanako Amano, a demographic expert at the NLI Institute in Tokyo, discussed the growing popularity of love dolls: “The biggest problem in Japan is the birth rate and population decline. This is called a national disaster.

“The Japanese are at a crossroads and are facing the threat of extinction.

“We are endangered species.”
