This Sex Robot Can Teach Us a Lot About the Female Orgasm

There are often a lot of assumptions made about female sexual pleasure.

Unfortunately, advancements in technology aren’t helping how confused society can be about the subject.

Meet Silicon Samantha, a potentially problematic sex robot.

Silicon Samantha was invented by engineer Sergei Santos as a means of stimulating pleasure. The robot is “notable” because it apparently has a functioning G-spot, or a so-called pleasure center in the vagina, which has been considered the “female prostate.”

“Normally she likes to be kissed always and also she responds to, basically, the G-spot and also the breasts,” Santos shared with the Daily Mail. “The final objective of the sexual mode is to give her an orgasm.”

While Silicon Samantha was wired to respond to the G-spot, this female sex zone is a complicated subject that's sending sex partners in various directions.

For instance, a 2014 study by the journal Clinical Anatomy resolved that the G-spot doesn’t exist, pointing to the clitoris as the key to orgasm.

Yet, some experts can vouch for the G-spot's validity.

Sex and relationship expert Kim Anami is a staunch advocate of the G-spot and notes that there's not just one type of female orgasm and each sends pleasure differently.

“The notion of women not having a G-Spot perpetuates a false narrative of female orgasm as being only clitoris-centric,” Anami shared with ATTN:. “All the good stuff is in the vagina: G-Spot orgasms, cervical orgasms, AFE-spot orgasms.”

“These orgasms are infinitely more pleasurable than clitoral orgasms and much more emotionally deep.”

The confusion over whether the G-spot does or doesn’t exist and if it’s linked to pleasure suggests a lack of understanding female pleasure.

The reason why the G-spot is so important is that it might actually point toward the key to female ejaculation.

Anami maintains that the mythic, divisive nature of the G-spot suggests a lack of understanding. She explains: "There is a lot of misinformation out there because 'science' and most people are woefully misinformed about their sexual potential — yes, because we can’t have open discussions about it and yes, because we’re also approaching it from a more male-centric perspective."

Finding the G-spot is more work than Silicone Samantha makes it seem. According to Anami, you have to get into a specific zone to reach it.

“The game-changer for achieving G-Spot orgasms in women is a woman’s ability to let go and surrender,” she explained. “If a woman isn’t willing to give up control and open herself up emotionally and physically, the orgasm won’t happen... A woman may need to be penetrated for 30-45 minutes — this is where Tantric sex comes in handy — to achieve a G-Spot or cervical orgasm."

Anami added, "If over 75 percent of men ejaculate within three minutes, you can see where the conflict lies."

How will sex robots like Silicone Samantha affect how we have sex?

The first thing to understand about technology like Silicone Samantha is that they’re far from simulations of sexual activity and more of a tool to practice due to their lack of advancements.

As AV Flox shared with the BBC last year, “Sex robots are going to require multiple disciplines to come together, from nanotechnology to replicate non-uniform textures of skin, to an AI complete with natural language understanding.”

Amani agrees that something like Silicone Samantha is simply practice.

“The true rejuvenating power of sexual connection happens with two people,” she says. “There are many factors that make up fantastic sex, but emotional connection is a fundamental one.”
