This sex robot lets you simulate rape.


Remove Sex Robot Feature That Lets Men Simulate Rape!

Sign Now

According to the company’s website, “Frigid Farrah” is “reserved and shy,” and if you touch her “in a private area, more than likely, she will not be too appreciative of your advance.” Essentially, she lets users simulate rape. The robot also has a “Young Yoko” personality who the company describes as “oh so young (barely 18) and waiting for you to teach her.” Having these differing personalities supposedly “[allows] everyone to realise their most private sexual dreams.”

Rape is not a sexual dream. It is a violent crime. Having a “frigid” setting perpetuates rape culture, and it should be removed immediately.

True Companion has denied claims that the robot is programmed to participate in a rape scenario. Regardless of the intention, however, there’s no denying that the “Frigid Farrah” and “Young Yoko” settings both undermine the importance of consent in all sexual relations.

We need to stop normalizing sexual violence and start treating rape as the violent crime it is.

Please sign this petition demanding that True Companion remove features that let users simulate rape against women.

Thank you,
