In the 1980s, the founder of the Church of Satan, Anton Lavey, recommended the use of “humanoids” as vehicles for mankind (and womankind) to exercise their darker sexual fantasies.
If one thing is certain, whenever new technology pops up, people will find a way to get off with it.
Phone sex lines happened almost immediately after the invention of the telephone and everyone joked as to whether the Internet, in its early days, would ever move beyond anything other than a wasteland of pornography.
Robotics is no exception, and the Church of Satan is hoping to see its founder’s vision realized.
Over the weekend, the Church of Satan, which maintains an entertaining Twitter account with 125,000 followers, tweeted out several videos celebrating sex dolls, according to Metro.

As Metro reports,
The Church of Satan’s Magistra Blanche Barton wrote, ‘Scientists and techno-geeks are doing a bang-up job in these departments, developing exceedingly realistic artificial human companions, both of the Real Doll and virtual Facebook-friend variety.’
Magus Peter H. Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan told Metro, ‘Anton LaVey promoted the idea of “artificial human companions” as a means for people to exercise sexual or other drives with a device that might gratify their fantasies without having to involve other human beings. This would permit complete control over the details of the fantasy. Now that robotics is advancing, it seems that this field of endeavor is seeing new activity.
He stated that the Church of Satan is not directly involved in developing sex robots, but many of its members may privately be doing so, as the Church’s mission is education regarding the philosophy of Satanism.
The Church of Satan says, ‘Fourth, Satanists advocate a new industry, the development and promotion of artificial human companions. These humanoids will be constructed to be as realistic as possible, and available to anyone who can afford one. ‘Recognizing that the human animal often raises himself up through the denigration of another, this would provide a safe outlet for such behavior.
