The Stepford Wife: What Every Man Wants?

The Stepford Wife: What Every Man Wants?

By Donna Cavanagh

Shopping for a man`s gift always presents a challenge. Sure there are the golf clubs, the practical-yet-always-welcome-case of beer, the 52-inch, dream TV, but for some men, these popular gifts are not enough. Some men need that extra special gift that says, "I am the guy, and I want to live my life my way."  For those men, the perfect gift might come in the form of a custom-made s*x robot.

Now, don`t scoff or get judgmental.  This is a legitimate product.  Okay, it`s true that, the makers of the s*x robot, debuted the little lady at the A*ult En(t)ertainment Expo in Las Vegas in 2010, but since then she has gained a large following and a good amount of credibility.  Sure she comes with a hefty price tag of at least $7,000, but for the many men who fantasize about having a Stepford wife, the s*x robot is perfect.

Yes, the female s*x ro(b)ot is not random pieces of metal welded together.  No, this robot, which is named Roxxy, is human in almost every detail.  Roxxy has a circulatory system which gives her body heat. She "performs" in and out of the bedroom plus she offers words of encouragement and support for the guy who buys her. She can be programmed to have a conversation, express her love and admiration and she can feel and react to her man`s human touch. Yes, that means Rox(x)y the Robot achieves orgasm. 

In fact, Roxxy does everything except housework and cooking. It figures that the fantasy woman would get out of picking up dirty underwear off the floor or dealing with the after effects of her man eating three chili dogs for lunch.

The s*xy r(o)bot is the dream child of an ex-Bell Labs engineer, Douglas Hines, and this engineer has thought of pretty much everything. To prevent a customer from getting bored with his delightful doll companion, each Roxxy comes with other pre-programmed personalities. Yes, Men, you can select the personality that fits your mood. One minute Roxxy is Mature Martha, an experienced but loving woman, but if that does nothing for you, you can make Roxxy become Frigid Farrah, Wild Wendy, S(&)M Sally or Young Yoko. I don`t have to go into what their personalities are like--do I?  I think their names are pretty much self-explanatory.

Those who order the robots can select skin tone, hair color and hair style. Yes, the robot is as close to perfect as possible. Would you like to know the icing on the cake? You can trade them amongst your family and friends. You can host Roxxy parties, or if you prefer, you can trade them online.  Yes, says it`s like w(i)fe-swapping without the moral disgust.  Really?  I think this company might have set the bar for moral disgust just a tad low. 

I hope most women are cringing at the very idea of the Roxxy Robot sex doll. But just in case you are not, and you think it`s unfair that men have a sexy robot, feel slighted no longer.  I have more good news:  TrueCompanion(dot)com makes a Rocky doll--yes, the male equivalent of Roxxy for women. We can have the perfect man too.

Rocky comes with all the right parts that move and vibrate.  In fact, the company says that being with Rocky is like being with a well-endowed super hunk who puts a woman`s pleasure before his own.  Well, they were a bit more explicit, but you get the idea.  If you can take Rocky out and make him pick up the tab for dinner, he would be someone a lot of women could appreciate.  If he fixed the plumbing or the car, and watched chick flicks without complaining, I think women everywhere might think about trading in their human models for the robot. 

I think I should contact the company. Since I am looking into the whole concept, maybe they could lend me a Rocky so I can see firsthand what all the fuss is about.  If nothing else, I can at least sit him in the passenger seat of my Escape and go in the carpool lanes. Yes, he might add a little excitement to my daily drive.
