Press / xHamster Seeking to Audition Love Robots for Summer Productions
At xHamster, we’ve always been at the forefront of sextech. In 2007, we were a pioneer among the early tube sites, and in the years since have led at site security, consumer privacy, sexual education, VR and most recently AI, artificial intelligence.
Over the past year, we’ve built an AI database that we hope will help us not only identify adult performers, but has provided the raw data to help us develop the next generation of adult entertainment — the first AI adult star.
We’ve been encouraged by the incredible work being done by those inside and outside of our industry, professional and amateur, in regard to love dolls. We believe there is tremendous potential, not only as a consumer product, but as a central part of adult film production.
In short, we’d like to make your love doll our first exclusive contract star.
The advantages from a production standpoint are many. Not only would an AI performer avoid some of the complicated regulations of workplace health and safety, and consent, but the cost could be amortized over perhaps hundreds of shoots. Traditional costs, including fees, testing, travel and lodging would be close to zero.
We know from building our own proprietary love doll in 2017, xHamsterina, that the physical adaptability would allow for countless variations in appearance, with little or no lost set up time. However, our own doll is not robotically equipped, and we believe that it is better to partner with someone already invested in the field.
A love doll might not yet be able to take the place of most performers, at least in the historic adult film format. However, we do believe that, with robotic technology and our own developments in AI, that we could begin to supplement production, beginning with certain fetishes and shorter clips.
Our own AI already can already recognize tens of thousands of adult performers and cam stars. In the near future, we believe we will be able to identify and categorize hundreds of other data points, including sounds, expressions, demeanor and proclivity. We intend to build a doll that can, in time, respond to stimuli and recognize the needs of its scene mate performer (as well, ideally, any consumers who would purchase.)
We have seen consumer interest in sex dolls surge in the past few years, doubling year over year. What might once have been a curiosity is developing into a fully-fledged market of its own, easily besting subgenres like hentai. We believe this is a prime growth market in 2018-2020.
This week, we will be at CES in Las Vegas, as well as the industry trade shows, XBIZ and AVN. We’re interested in meeting with manufacturers about a possible partnership. We are one of the one hundred most visited sites in the world, with over 40 million visitors every day. We are prepared to offer not only our technology, but funding.
We’re looking to begin production in early summer, following a series of “auditions” and test shoots in Los Angeles with various robot love dolls will be paired with bio-male and female talent in April.
