Brothel Owner Wants Bunny Ranch to be Sexbot ‘Testbed’

To paraphrase Officer Rick Deckard: Robots are like any other machine—they’re either a benefit or a hazard.

For American brothel owner Dennis Hof, they’re a benefit.

The entrepreneur, restaurateur, and proprietor of seven legal cathouses in Nevada plans to pilot sex robots at his Moonlite Bunny Ranch, near Carson City.

“The next great innovations in our industry will not only be cultural, but also technical,” Hoff said in a statement emailed to “Sex robots are here to stay, and the technology is further along than most people think.”

Well… As University of London lecturer and writer Kate Devlin pointed out: “There are no actual sex robots in production yet—just dolls.”
