'We are not Sin City': Houston city council pulls the plug on proposal to open first sex robot brothel in the US

  • Houston city council voted Wednesday to ban sex with robots in a brothel
  • Canadian company will still be able to sell the sex robots for use elsewhere
  • Robot brothel would have been first in US, drew comparisons to Westworld
  • Company called KinkySdollS opened its first robot brothel last year in Toronto

A company's plan to open a so-called sex robot brothel in Houston has been short circuited by city leaders.

Houston's City Council on Wednesday updated one local ordinance to specifically ban individuals from having sex with an 'anthropomorphic device,' a device that resembles a human being, at a sexually-oriented business.

The change wouldn't ban the company from selling the dolls for use elsewhere.

The company, Canada-based KinkySdollS, had wanted to open a 'love dolls brothel' in Houston in which people would be able to use its human-like dolls - a concept that that has drawn comparisons to the science fiction series 'Westworld.'

KinkySdollS says its human-like dolls (above), which can speak and feel warm to the touch, are available for sale or rent. The dolls can cost more than $3,000 each

It would have been the company's second location. The first location opened in 2017 in Toronto. On its web site, the company says it provides an 'adult love dolls rent before you buy service.'

On its web site, KinkySdollS says its human-like dolls, which can speak and feel warm to the touch, are available for sale or rent. The dolls can cost more than $3,000 each.

KinkySdollS did not immediately return emails seeking comment on Wednesday.

Before the City Council unanimously approved the change to the ordinance, council member Greg Travis called the proposed robot brothel 'weird' and 'gross.'

Travis said he believed that most residents don't want the business to open in Houston.

'We are not sin city,' Travis said.

Officials said they are not trying to legislate morality with the updated ordinance.

Mayor Sylvester Turner said a business could sell such robotic devices but individuals couldn't use them at the premises before buying them.

'We want businesses to come. But then they're some that we say, 'You know it's fine if you go someplace else,'' said Turner, who has been part of a chorus of local leaders and community groups that have pushed back against the robot brothel, which would have been the first such business in the U.S.

Elijah Rising, a Houston-based nonprofit focused on ending sex trafficking, has started a Change.org petition asking that the business be kept out of the city. The petition has received more than 13,500 signatures.

The petition read in part: 'robot brothels will ultimately harm men, their understanding of healthy sexuality, and increase the demand for the prostitution and sexual exploitation of women and children.'

The city ordinance that was updated deals with the regulation of adult arcades and adult mini-theatres in Houston and classifies a robot as an arcade device.
