Robotic Vaginas for Childbirth

Apparently now they have robotic vaginas that will be used is childbirth simulations to help students. I don't know whether to be extremely disgusted or slightly proud of the scientific advance. On one hand, as a mother, I believe that any education that will help a mother during one of the most beautiful moments of her life is a great thing, but on the other I am really creeped out by the sound that I am hearing from this robot. Combine this with all the stuff I have seen recently on robot dolls and all I see is a creepy coming to life of Second Life.

I would think that there is another way to educate practitioners on childbirth other than robots that spit out robotic children. I certainly hope that if this becomes a true reality, this is kept in the educational realm and does not spill over into the sex doll phase that seems to be really taking off.
