“Children of Men” Coming True – Thanks to Porn and Sexbots

The Japanese word hikikomori is used to describe an individual, usually young males, who have pulled away from society. According to Wiki the literal translation of hikikomori is “pulling inward, being confined”. The lifestyle of hikikomori is dominated by internet porn and games, being sheltered by one’s parents, and, for some damn reason, an obsession with swords.

Defending his virginity. From no-one.

This is just one extreme example of societal groups in Japan who are contributing to the projected population decline, which should dip dangerously below 100-million by 2060, if all those colorful graphs on Google can be trusted. A poll in The Observer stated that in 1990, 45% of unwed men had never had sex before. Which is 55% less than the male population at Comic Con.

Here in the states (‘Murica) things aren’t looking so shiny for marriage either. Pew Research polled men and women, 18 to 34, to find out if marriage is one of the most important goals in young folks’ lives. Apparently for women, it is, raising from 28% percent to 37% over the course of 15 years. But for men tying the knot seems about as high on the to-do list as buying a sword, since this dropped from 35% to 29%.

So why don’t guys want to get hitched?

There are dozens of articles online speculating about why wedding bells have been silenced. Some claim that women don’t act like women anymore, and are treated more or less like live-in buddies by male counterparts. Or that men aren’t men anymore because of overall testosterone levels declining, while pseudo estrogen has infiltrated our food. Or that men are afraid of having their paychecks revoked for 18 years of child support after a messy divorce, the rates of which are still hovering at 50%. It’s no secret that the courts heavily favor mothers in child support cases, even ordering a man whose child was proven not to be his to pay support, or a sperm donor to be responsible for $6,000 in regular assistance.

But the tie that seems to bind the celibate men in developed countries is, without question, internet porn. Not only has the availability of pixilated boobs contributed to the cloistering of hikikomori, but it’s also being blamed for poisoning already married couples. And the problem is only going to get worse. Of all the countries that should be putting the brakes on shaming shut-in men while simultaneously providing them with mountains of porn, Japan seems hell-bent on putting the final coffin nail on marriage and human reproduction, by leading the industry in sexbot development.

Granted, this “skin-job” is not billed as a sexbot. It is an Actroid, or Actor-Android. And according to the manufacturing company Kokoro-Dreams Ltd. the later model Actroids have the ability to simulate breathing, blinking, and can react to being poked or patted, which is a short step away from faking an orgasm. It also comes with the added bonus of proving that the writers of Futurama can see into the motherfucking future, and originally produced their cartoon as a mockery of what they’ve seen of mankind’s fate.
