Over the past few years, sex robots have become all the rage, with people spending a helluva lot of money to mimic intercourse with a human being, but actually be doing it with a robot. While some wondered what the future held for that type of kink, the world’s first oral sex robot shows us that people are really interested in this type of sex.

According to LADbible, the world’s first oral sex robot, aptly called the “Autoblow AI” by VIECI, has more than surpassed its goal on its crowdfunding campaign, with the project raising almost $250,000, which is more than 500 percent over the target goal put forth by VIECI. That’s pretty incredible, guys, and really telling about the future of sex robots.

So what makes the Autoblow AI different than other oral sex devices that are out there? Per the LADbible piece, it’s the world’s first oral sex simulator that uses artificial intelligence to teach itself oral sex techniques and, more importantly, improve its performance. Basically, it’s as close to getting head from a real person as possible, well, except for the whole “real person” thing.

Here’s what the device’s inventor, Brian Sloan, had to say about the project, and how the Autoblow AI came to existence, via LADbible.

“We spent the last three years listening to feedback from our 200,000 Autoblow 2 owners and in response built a new machine that mechanically better replicates the gliding and friction combination of the mouth and hand that men experience during oral sex.”

“By using artificial intelligence to, for the first time, understand the mechanics of blowjobs, we discovered and replicated techniques that make using our machine feel less robotic and more human.”

For those who recognize the Autoblow 2, it’s a non-AI sex toy that acts as an oral sex robot, but doesn’t have the human element to it. More directly, it’s not capable of the AI technology that the latest version is.

Want to know how the Autoblow AI is so technologically advanced? According to the LADbible piece, the oral sex robot is super technical, with intelligence similar to that found in a smartphone. It’s “stroking plane” is manipulated by infra-red sensors, and features 10 different modes to enjoy — all the way from full stroke to fast edge, so pick your favorite oral sex type, fellas.

Of course, as innovative as the Autoblow AI appears to be, it still has its negatives, with the most glaring being that it has to be plugged into a wall socket to work. Yep, that means that your willy is in the mouth of an oral sex robot that has a bunch of electricity running through it to work; that sounds, uh, risky. Another downside of the device is the price, with it being sold for $249. That’s a steep price, but it may be worth it if you can’t get oral sex elsewhere, we suppose.

With an expected delivery date by May 2019, VIECI’s Autoblow AI might be something to mark your calendars for, because who wouldn’t want to experience the world’s first oral sex robot, right? Not sure about you, but we’re kind of intrigued.
