I was scrolling through my Twitter timeline a couple of days ago when I came across a post about sex dolls having a sex scene in the movie Spaceballs. I’m not sure if it was true or just something someone was trolling, but it immediately captured my attention.
For some reason, the concept struck me as so bizarre that I couldn’t help but be intrigued. It was like there was something darkly humorous about it. How could such a thing even be possible? How could two dolls manage to engage in such activity without a lot of help from special effects and professional actors?
Nevertheless, I found myself in a dilemma. On one hand the notion of dolls having a sex scene in such a famous movie was just too entertaining to resist, but on the other hand, it raised some serious moral issues. Is it appropriate to showcase dolls engaged in such actions? Are we as a society ready to accept such behaviour, even if it’s in the name of entertainment?
I decided to put the moral dilemma on hiatus and gathered as much information as I could about the scene. As it happens, it appears that despite all the clever use of special effects, the scene was indeed real. Apparently, the dolls were specially programmed to be able to respond to certain cues and act out the scene accordingly.
My interest was piqued even further when I learned it wasn’t a one-scene deal either. Apparently, the dolls had several scenes throughout the movie and even had lines of dialogue. This realization made me shake my head in amazement. Not only was it clever, it was artistically brilliant in its own unique way.
It’s really cool to see that technology has advanced so much to bring this kind of realism to an otherwise fictional world. In some ways, it makes me think of a much more futuristic world, one that blends the real and the virtual together in a perfect balance.
I’m also happy to see that despite any moral issues, the movie was still well accepted by the public. I mean, it’s not everyday that you see a movie featuring two dolls having sex dolls. But in this case, I find myself truly impressed by the level of creativity and innovation the filmmakers had to pull off this remarkable feat.
