Manufacture of child sex robots moves BBC investigative journalist to tears
By Doug Mainwaring
While touring an “adult toy” factory in Japan that manufactures “sexbots” – life-size, lifelike robots created for the purpose of sexual gratification – a young BBC journalist stumbled upon a section of the building where childlike “sexbots” were being assembled.
BBC journalist James Young was “visibly shaken,” according to a Daily Star report, and said afterward that “the encounter was ‘horrific.’ I just had to get out of there.”
“Mr Young, who is also a biological scientist with a prosthetic arm and leg, traveled across the globe to meet the makers of sex robots for the documentary,” the report continued. “During the show, he noted how it seemed “like they have the potential to bring out the worst things in us.”
While some assert that increasingly lifelike child sex dolls and “sexbots” will serve as a deterrent to criminal sexual acts against children by pedophiles, many experts believe the nascent, burgeoning industry will encourage sexual predation, leading to an increase, not a decrease, in the sexual exploitation of children.
Some of these dolls resemble children as young as three years old and can be customized to feature lifelike facial expressions, including sadness and fear.
