Yes (We should research the field)
No (it's disgusting)
I'd buy one.
I think the commentators in the video get it right. We should be trying to help people even if it may seem unacceptable. A robot is better than a child.
Just don't program the robot with the ability to feel pain or get scarred for life from molestation. Though there are other options. There are adults with normal mental functioning but whose bodies physically look more like children because of disorders. There you go. If you are attracted to children I suggest you date those adults. Problem solved.
Offenders could be drawn into registering with Social Services & the Police in return for this product. The robot could then record their actions and the data could be used to risk profile them. How long would it take though before these mechanical victims were available generally? They would no doubt increase offending rates as they could be used to live out fantasies that a human may not comply with enabling the fantasy to evolve faster. Would be the same for adult machines too, fantasies would I'm sure get alot darker if there is no law to stop simulated extreme bondage etc. Interesting but very creepy topic...
