Breaking News! Update on the Houston Robot Brothel

No way! Nope, nope, not in H-town.

The Houston City Council voted unanimously to change a city ordinance, relating sex businesses, to block the opening of the robot brothel.  After Toronto-based Kinky S. Dolls announced that the first robot brothel in this country would be opened in Houston. The ordinance prohibits an individuals from having sex with an “anthropomorphic device”. Who knew a robot was an anthropomorphic device!

At the brothel, (if the brothel were going to be) customers pay by the hour to sample the life-like dolls’ wares. A sort of test drive because the dolls are also for sale at the hefty sum of $2,500

Forbes Magazine said that presumably Kinky S. Dolls had chosen Houston because of its lack of zoning laws.  Sorry, didn’t work out Kinky S.

Texas has a history of regulating  “obscene devices”.  In 2007, Texas amended its obscenity law to include the sale of sexual devices, such as—well, you know. This law stood until 2008 when the Fifth Circuit Court overturned it. They were legal in the home, but selling them could win you a hefty fine or jail time.

So, no go on the Robot Brothel in Houston, Texas.

My fascination with these anthropomorphic devices stems from my book Love For Sale.  The hero is a sentient, fully human-like android programmed to love the heroine. (it has nothing to do with brothels or sex-trafficking or any of that!)  It’s a sci-fi romance.  Here’s the book video created by our own Toni V. Sweeney.
