    Robots. Yes. How do I love robots? Let?s count the ways. Well, for the sake of brevity, maybe not, but let?s just say I really, really love robots?although not in the way some of the denizens of this book do. So while I?d love a robot best friend, a robot romantic and/or sexual...

    A quippy, personal tour of the world of sex dolls Turned On: Science, Sex and Robots, by Kate Devlin, is a mostly pleasant but somewhat superficial romp through an interesting landscape of sex dolls and the (mostly) men who love them. Devlin is a fine writer, and is clearly know...

    Bem, se pegarem neste livro em busca de visões mecânicas libidinosas, desenganem-se. Este livro leva o tema da intersecção entre robots e sexualidade muito a sério. Começa por desmontar a ideia de robots com fins sexuais. Fala-se nisso, mas não se faz, não porque não haja vont...

    Turned On is an easy to read book that presents philosophical, ethical, technical, and historical ideas in an easy to understand format. The writers voice is also pleasing and really made the journey through her field of research as interesting as the title suggested. Content covere...

    Turned On: Science, Sex and Robots is literally about all three of those things but not necessarily all at one time. The book begins with a look back at early sex toys. The most hard to forget is the sailor?s lady made of leather and fabric and shared around the ship, ahead of the...

    Just like there?s a site for everything on the web, there?s a doctoral dissertation for everything in the libraries of academia, or at least in the sometimes-fertile imagination of grad students. Here?s the proof, a book about sex robots, though the author would kill me if she sa...

    Turned On: Science, Sex and Robots (Hardcover) by Kate Devlin I heard the au on a BBC world service program on Sat Oct 27 2018 on sex robots. KD was part of a three way conversation which soon turned to comparing the idea of sex robot partners to sex toys and to porn, at which po...

    This book was a disappointment due to the fact that the primarily concerns of the author appear to be of (feminist) issues and impacts of new sex technologies of today and very near future, and not their creative destructive nature in the foreseeable future, the intention that the auth...

    Although Devlin muses on the philosophical implications of a far-distant future where artificial intelligence, embodied in sex robots among other appliances, will have advanced to functional sentience, she?s more concerned in the here and now. You can?t buy a fembot, but you can bu...

    Turned On: Science, Sex, and Robots by Kate Devlin is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in mid-October. Devlin speaks of intimacy and sensuality in a technologically advanced world in a daring, cheeky, yet chirpy tone, perhaps like a person who spends a lot of time at cons. It refe...

    3.5 stars. There is a lot of introductory material here that serves to inform those new to the topic. The book comes off as a kind of Hunter S Thompson piece as Devlin has been in the thick of sexbot-dom for the past few years. Not being a philosopher and ethicist the book struggles to...

    Could be a good overview of the topic for those who are brand new to it, but then again the topic itself isn't certain. Are we talking about sex toys through history, or are we talking about robots? This book doesn't seem to know exactly what it wants to explore or say, which is mirror...

    I simply couldn't get enough of Devlin's warmth and witty writing! This is such a fantastically fascinating book. ...

    If the title of Kate Devlin's Turned On: Science, Sex and Robots is eye-catching, mission accomplished! Devlin employs a cheeky writing style to discuss the serious academic work for which she is best known: the intersection of robots and human sexuality. Turned On, far from being sala...

    Turned On: Science, Sex, and Robots by Kate Devlin is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in mid-October. Devlin speaks of intimacy and sensuality in a technologically advanced world in a daring, cheeky, yet chirpy tone, perhaps like a person who spends a lot of time at cons. It refe...

    3.5 stars. There is a lot of introductory material here that serves to inform those new to the topic. The book comes off as a kind of Hunter S Thompson piece as Devlin has been in the thick of sexbot-dom for the past few years. Not being a philosopher and ethicist the book struggles to...

    Could be a good overview of the topic for those who are brand new to it, but then again the topic itself isn't certain. Are we talking about sex toys through history, or are we talking about robots? This book doesn't seem to know exactly what it wants to explore or say, which is mirror...

    Robots. Yes. How do I love robots? Let?s count the ways. Well, for the sake of brevity, maybe not, but let?s just say I really, really love robots?although not in the way some of the denizens of this book do. So while I?d love a robot best friend, a robot romantic and/or sexual...

    Turned On: Science, Sex and Robots is literally about all three of those things but not necessarily all at one time. The book begins with a look back at early sex toys. The most hard to forget is the sailor?s lady made of leather and fabric and shared around the ship, ahead of the...

    Just like there?s a site for everything on the web, there?s a doctoral dissertation for everything in the libraries of academia, or at least in the sometimes-fertile imagination of grad students. Here?s the proof, a book about sex robots, though the author would kill me if she sa...

    Turned On: Science, Sex and Robots (Hardcover) by Kate Devlin I heard the au on a BBC world service program on Sat Oct 27 2018 on sex robots. KD was part of a three way conversation which soon turned to comparing the idea of sex robot partners to sex toys and to porn, at which po...

    This book was a disappointment due to the fact that the primarily concerns of the author appear to be of (feminist) issues and impacts of new sex technologies of today and very near future, and not their creative destructive nature in the foreseeable future, the intention that the auth...

    Although Devlin muses on the philosophical implications of a far-distant future where artificial intelligence, embodied in sex robots among other appliances, will have advanced to functional sentience, she?s more concerned in the here and now. You can?t buy a fembot, but you can bu...

    Turned On: Science, Sex, and Robots by Kate Devlin is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in mid-October. Devlin speaks of intimacy and sensuality in a technologically advanced world in a daring, cheeky, yet chirpy tone, perhaps like a person who spends a lot of time at cons. It refe...

    3.5 stars. There is a lot of introductory material here that serves to inform those new to the topic. The book comes off as a kind of Hunter S Thompson piece as Devlin has been in the thick of sexbot-dom for the past few years. Not being a philosopher and ethicist the book struggles to...

    Could be a good overview of the topic for those who are brand new to it, but then again the topic itself isn't certain. Are we talking about sex toys through history, or are we talking about robots? This book doesn't seem to know exactly what it wants to explore or say, which is mirror...
