Japanese Sex-Clubs Employ Robots

Human touts used to stand on the street outside sex clubs in Osaka enticing potential customers to visit the clubs. But today, there are laws against immoral activities to prevent this. It turns out there's no law against robots doing the job. So, sex clubs can now buy a humanoid robot that will stand outside their club waving a banner and attracting new customers. The robot tout is a 500,000 yen upgrade to one of the traffic directing robots that are common throughout Japan. Will the robot run afoul of the law that targets humans? "It's a robot, so no problem" said one representative of the new robot service. For more, see the original Japanese article.
