The city council in Houston has decided to keep a robot brothel from opening in the city. Members changed the sexually oriented business ordinance. The change would ban people from having sex with an "anthropomorphic device" - basically a device made to resemble a human.

The change passed with a unanimous vote. This will keep the proposed "sex robot brothel" from opening.

A Canadian company already operates an "adult love dolls rent before you buy service" in Toronto and they were trying to get one up and going in Houston.

The company, KinkySdollS, sells and rents human-like dolls that can cost more than $3,000 each.

Lots of Houston residents were opposed to this proposed operation: “A business like this would destroy homes, families, finances of our neighbors and cause major community uproars in the city,” said Pastor Vega, one of the speakers at the meeting.

“As a woman, I am concerned and horrified to see where our society is taking us,” Virginia Mireles said.

One council member said he planned to record the business' patrons entering the building and shame them online.
