Sexbots with a female design have been referred to as chick-bots  or fembots . The sex robot has evolved from sex doll precursors that stem back as far as the 16th century, during which French and Spanish sailors created hand sewn masturbation puppets made of cloth, leather, and old clothes.
Much of the inspiration for creating the modern sex doll came from mannequin-based art created by Hans Bellmer , Man Ray and Salvador Dali. Man Ray claimed that surrealists , including himself and Dali, infused their work with eroticism and personally "violated" their mannequins.
By , sex dolls were first advertised in pornographic magazines and became available for purchase via mail. These sex dolls were inflatable with air; consisting of penetration areas at the mouth, vagina, and anus. However, due to their inflatable nature, these dolls were subject to deterioration and were not sustainable for constant use. By the s, materials such as latex and silicone were widely used in the manufacturing of sex dolls to facilitate enhanced durability and a greater resemblance to a human.
The realism of sex robots greatly accelerated in the late s. McMullen received much criticism about the anatomical correctness of his mannequins; using this as motivation to create a more enhanced version.
In , McMullen switched to using platinum material, instead of tin-cure silicon, to further enhance the durability and lifelike nature of the doll. Consequently, all other sex doll manufacturers have followed suit. Many manufacturers, including McMullen, believed that companionship is a critical part of the sex bot dynamic and that incorporating AI into them is the next step.
As of , various new models have been constructed to hold conversations, remember important facts, and express various emotions. One such model is "Harmony", created by Matt McMullen, which is customizable by using a mobile app, where users can choose from "thousands of possible combinations of looks, clothes, personalities and voices to make your perfect companion". In , David Levy , the chess champion and author of Love and Sex with Robots  said in an interview with Newsweek that "I believe that loving sex robots will be a great boon to society There are millions of people out there who, for one reason or another, cannot establish good relationships.
In , MIT Press published the first book on this topic, Robot Sex , with a preliminary approach to the several challenges this field represent for human beings and societies.
A short review of this book in Spanish , can be found here. There are ongoing attempts to make sex dolls socially interactive. In , a sex doll called Roxxxy that had the capacity to play back pre-recorded speech cues was demonstrated at a trade show. Barcelona based Dr. Sergi Santos developed sex robot Samantha; the robot can switch between a sex setting which can include Samantha simulating an orgasm  and a family mode.
In , Matt McMullen created a sex doll called "Harmony" which has the capability of learning about the preferences, wants, and desires of the owner. Furthermore, Harmony can smile, blink and frown in a nearly humanlike fashion.
She can hold a conversation with you, tell jokes, remember your food preferences, and the names of your siblings. He subsequently added a different colored wig and changed her personality by using the app on his handheld device that controls the robot. In September , the Japanese company SoftBank , the makers of the " Pepper " robot, included a ban on robot sex. The robot's user agreement states: "The policy owner must not perform any sexual act or other indecent behaviour".
Noel Sharkey Aimee van Wynsberghe and Eleanor Hancock of the Foundation for Responsible Robotics released a consultation report presenting a summary of the issues and various opinions about what could be society's intimate association with robots.
Sharkey warns that this could be "problematic" in terms of sex dolls resembling children. There is considerable speculation about this technology coming from experts in the fields of philosophy, sociology, and the natural sciences.
Scholars such as Chandrshekhar Shrivastava believe that sex robots will facilitate "social isolation" and that sexual relations with robots will "desensitize humans to intimacy and empathy". She further argues that only when interacting with another human can we experience our humanity and our identity, as opposed to interacting with a robot. The sex robots that have been created, as of , primarily resemble women with exaggerated characteristics.
Kathleen Richardson argues that these sex robots facilitate a powerful attitude towards women's bodies as commodities, and promote a non-empathetic interaction. Many scholars, including Richardson, argue that this "reinforces the idea that women are property", rather than human beings with free will. He believes that sex with these robots represents the "rape of a woman" and may increase the rate of rape in society, while also facilitating a general "disrespect for women" in society.
The manufacturer claimed that if "you touched her in a private area, more than likely, she will not be too appreciative of your advance". Many scholars view this as indulging rape fantasies and facilitating a rape culture. Donovan, Jr. House of Representatives on 13 June The bill would amend the federal obscenity statute, 18 U. Proponents of sex robots believe that sex robots have the potential to provide a valuable service for people who are elderly or disabled and provide them with emotional support say, for example, when the spouse of an elderly person dies.
After conducting a study on many elderly patients, it was found that elderly individuals were interested in having a robot as their companion and their interest did not decay over time. He further explains that these patients established meaningful rapport with the robot companion and that they greatly valued the presence of the robot.
