    I don't know about the UK but seems nothing stays private in the US.

    I am concerned that the real purpose of this is about shaming men out of using masturbation aids, making them more under the control of women for sexual relief and thereby, "back on the plantation."

    In enlightened Sweden, this is going on: https://sputniknews.com/europe/201902211072612639-sweden-sex-robots-feminism/

    `Sex robots and sex dolls reinforce the view that women are objects and normalise men's violence against women, three feminist Swedish organisations claim. They're demanding legislation targeting technology that "reproduces ideas about exploiting women's bodies".'

    I thought porn reduced sexual violence as it gives men, even incels and FTLers alternatives.

    The UK is slipping into totalitarianism. The time has come to apply for refugee status and flee.

    Bravo, gorfias, for taking up this subject!

    (Swedish) " ... debaters noted that today's sex robots often have the appearances and attributes typical of the objectifying, sexualised and degrading attitude to women found in today's mainstream pornography".

    In that case, what's the problem? Women are eliminated from the equation.

    "Why are men willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars for a robot that obeys their smallest command?" the feminists asked rhetorically. "A female robot cannot say no to something that the man wants, if she is not programmed to do so", the feminists complained.

    The questions is, why do feminists assume that men who are "willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars" do so for that purpose?

    "The leaders of the women's organisations claimed that fantasies stimulated by such technology may lead to real violence against girls and women."

    It seems to me that men interested in "violence against girls and women" won't need to act out such fantasies if a robot is available.

    "They also drew parallels with pornography, whose consumption, they claimed, leads to sexist attitudes and actual violence. The dehumanisation of women justifies slavery, and the exploitation of the female body through new technology is part of this, they claimed."

    So feminists see sex as "pornographic, violent, dehumanizing, and a manifestation of slavery"?

    We can sum this up in your own words ....

    Which is exactly correct. I am from Sweden, by the way, where you can go to prison for having sex with your wife if she first wasn't in the mood but decided to do it anyway or if you compliment a woman on her hair/perfume/clothes but she "feels" like you were flirting with her. You know why Julian Assange has been denied his freedom, right? Because Swedish government put out an international arrest warrant for him for having sex without a condom .... calling it "RAPE" despite the fact the women at the center of the issue did not claim he raped them nor do/did they ever press any claim that he did. In fact, they want him free.

    Making matters much worse is the Swedish word for rape - "Våldtäkt" .... "våld" meaning "violent". So, in the definition of say verbally asking your wife to have sex with you .... is an act of violence. The bottom line is that the only way you can have sex in Sweden and not risk arrest is if the woman initiates the act. But even then you are not completely safe because if she later claims she was drunk then you and your azz are off to jail.

    Not to worry. Brexit will fix that quick-quick.

    What Brexit?

    As I predicted on June 23, 2016 the 3 quarters of MPs who vehemently oppose Brexit conspired against the people.

    Even now, hard Brexit (that is, Brexit) is the most popular position in the country, with 44% support.

    They have a truly incredible history, with clear flaws. That's humanity. Its complicated. The British Empire, imperialism, invading foreign lands - not good. The Glorious Revolution, the Magna Carta, the rule of law, individualism, John Stuart Mill, John Locke, incredible history.

    But the future is bleak. It's time for all self respecting liberals to leave while they still can.

    Betina Arndt tells of a story where a wife complains that her husband always initiates. He says OK, next time we have sex it will only be when you initiate it. And its been 8 years since.

    Being red pilled, in part, is wakening to the fact that women cannot and do not want to try to keep up with men as to frequency of sex (they can last many times longer on those occasions they do want to do so). But trying to keep men from alternatives while denying them in reality? I guess we're just supposed to turn blue and explode.

    The concept of marital rape is understandable in the "forced ****, beaten to ****" variety. But now with feminist theory applied, that regret after consensual sex = rape and congratulations ladies; you've just made even marital sex highly dangerous.

    I am pro-Brexit and my comment was meant to say that you won't need to leave the country because Brexit will put things right.

    The thing is, I am a liberal myself, that is to say, a Social-Democrat. But the Social Democratic party went walk-about when Olaf Palme was assassinated and they proved that without him to lead they were unable to tie their own boot laces. Consequently, I have been voting right-"ish". I am still a liberal in my soul but without an earnest political agenda to care for my nation the Social Democratic Party can go hang.

    Yes. In a nutshell. Time for him to seek pleasure with prostitutes: Oh no! Prostitution is illegal! What about a good wank with a porn film: Oh no. The feminists say that porn is "degrading to women" and want to have porn banned as well. Oh well, what about a sex doll: Oooops! There are a limited number of solutions to the problem and I've found mine. I married a traditional woman from Eastern Europe. Problem solved! And Swedish women? Who cares? They can play with themselves for all I care and they'll be lucky if I give them the time of day.
    It looks that way.
    The best thing (if you can afford it) is to ignore feminists. Let the fat and ugly lesbians embrace themselves with the odd, self-castrated silly boy masochists. They are all digging their own grave and good riddance to them. They had a march through the center of town last summer and they showed up topless "to make their point". I have absolutely no idea what the point was meant to be ..... and neither did the migrants who stared, made rude comments and took pictures. The lesbians (Ooops! I mean "feminists") were enraged by that and starting shouting at the men, "Stop staring!" What a hoot that was!
