Recently, there has been a debate about Real Doll in Korea. It seems that there has never been such a hot discussion in Korea regarding adult products. The above criticisms on real dolls are objections that can be applied to sex robots that will appear in the future. This paper examines those objections in relation to sex robots, and tries to assess the limit of the individual's sexual freedom that can be socially recognized. This paper first examines the reasons for favor or disagreement related to the introduction of sex robots, centering on Kathleen Richardson's view, and evaluates its justification. The most important issue implied by Richardson's criticism is the symbolism of sex robots.
It is criticized that sex robots are a symbol that promotes distorted perception of sex by sexually objectifying women, and that ignores the norm of gender-related consent norm of sex. This paper focuses on criticism of sex robots based on symbolism in particular, and considers how to circumvent such criticism.
