If the internet was made for sex, it’s safe to say that chatbots were invented to be sex chatbots. Chatbots are artificial intelligence-fueled interfaces that emulate a conversation between two humans. Most people have encountered some sort of chatbot on the web, usually in the form of virtual customer service representatives. Sex chatbots, however, are designed to engage in flirtatious or sexual chat. With a sex chatbot, users can pose requests, indulge in fantasies, and practice dirty talk.
Some sex chatbots are smarter than others. For users seeking an authentic experience, sex chatbot “intelligence” is important. The goal of a chatbot is to be able to understand conversational language and respond to user inputs in a natural-seeming way. Every chatbot approaches this goal in a slightly different way. Some bots are purely machine-based, meaning the chatbot “learns” through user input. Others are more scripted, meaning the chatbot guides the user through an experience or written narrative with limited choices for interaction. If your goal is to have an erotic experience, narrative-based sex chatbots typically offer a more reliable experience.
Here’s a round-up of the best and most popular sex chatbots, plus advice on how to choose the right one for you.
> Well-written content
> SMS-based for spontaneity and authenticity
> Best sex chatbot for people who want to learn how to sext and talk dirty
> Suitable for both single and partnered people
> Free for a basic subscription or you can pay to unlock premium content
Slutbot is a sex chatbot that delivers erotic stories and tips written by experts. Unlike other sex chatbots, you can chat with Slutbot via text message to closely mimic a real “sexting” experience. Slutbot pings you weekly to see if you want to “play,” then offers a steamy idea or story. Slutbot stories incorporate a variety of themes, scenarios, and kinks, including bondage, role play, and oral sex.
Slutbot is more intelligent than many sex chatbots in the sense that it is able to handle user input and ask for feedback, so the stories can actually change direction depending on how the user responds. Slutbot aims to be entertaining and educational, offering tips from sex educators and inviting users to practice dirty talk.
In addition to interactive sexting, Slutbot sends sexy ideas to try with partners, sexual self-care tips, and micro-fiction erotica via text message. Unlike other sex chatbots, Slutbot doesn’t assume the user’s gender. Instead, it asks the user to specify their gender identity and creates lots of opportunities for users to change their gender as they please. This allows the user to experiment with gender in different stories if they wish. The user can also select a certain gender for the bot itself and have an experience tailored to that desire.
> Great for browsing, thought quality varies
> Perfect for tiptoeing into the realm of sex chatbots
> Intelligence varies greatly
> Good for learning about different styles of dirty talk
> Some bots ask gender and adjust the story accordingly.
Personality Forge is a web host for user-generated chatbots. The site hosts a huge number of chatbots that specialize in a wide range of experiences and topics. Chatbots are given ratings to separate the family-friendly material from the more adult-themed sex chatbots. This rating roughly indicates whether the bot is intended for flirting only or seemingly up for anything and everything.
Each bot has its own personality and its own style. Some sex chatbots, for instance, describe what’s happening as though in a role-playing game. Others prefer to cut to the chase with dirty talk. If you’re looking to practice dirty talk or explore different sexual interests, Personality Forge has good options.
> Quality is patchy
> Fun to browse
> Potential to custom-build your ideal sex chatbot
> Bot's gender switches at random. Users are presumed to be male, but this might also switch randomly.
Love Droids is a sex chatbot-specific hosting site. Like Personality Forge, Love Droids hosts thousands of user-designed chatbots. All the bots are explicit, although some restrict what they will and won’t “do.” Intelligence varies from bot to bot, but is often rather crude and inelegant. The intelligence of the chatbots on Love Droids is measured by how many “objects” (phrases and word combinations) the droid can handle, but notably, there isn't a way to search by this filter. Users may choose to invest time and potentially money in designing their own sex chatbot instead of engaging with the publicly available ones. One useful feature is the automatic dictation, which allows users to hear the sex chatbot’s messages in addition to, or in lieu of, reading them.
> Good for users who enjoy images along with text
> Free to sample with story paywalls
> Nice range of stories to explore, including LGBT and BDSM content
> Largely unresponsive, but at least the sex chatbot doesn’t stumble over user-generated phrases it doesn’t understand.
Bottr is a chatbot that is currently in beta. It has a glossy interface and stories written by professionals. While the homepage suggests that there are other bots on offer, including bots for fitness and personal finance, the only bot that is available right now is a sex chatbot. Bottr's menu of stories offers a nice range of fantasies to explore, including a few free options. Stories are accentuated with gifs from pop culture and porn, which some users may enjoy.
At the start of a session, the bot asks for user gender, but that doesn’t seem to make much of a difference in the stories. Regardless of the user's responses to the bot, the story continues without change. The only exception to this is the basic command “STOP,” which ends the story. Most Bottr stories are available only to premium subscribers, but all the stories can be sampled for free.
> Fun to play with
> A window into other user experiences
> Intelligence is higher than other sex chatbots
> Somewhat difficult to keep the bot “on task” with sexual conversation
Thoughtscreen is an off-shoot of Cleverbot, an artificial intelligence that was renowned in 2011 for passing the Turing test. Thoughtscreen has a unique interface that allows you to see other users’ conversations with the bots, much like a chatroom. The intelligence of the bot is Thoughtscreen's strongest suit. The bot will ask questions and respond to user input. The results can be surprising, but quality varies.
