Domme text chat
The actual verbal copy is as deferential as I’ve come to expect from my preferred kind of service bot, but it seems even Howdy had his hard limits: No worries Howdy team, I’m sure Ben Brown is a fine enough gentleman but I’m a bit more of a discerning dominatrix.
Pros: bot copy lists keywords where applicable to help direct the user through requests, good response to variety of input formats for dates, times, etc.
As your friendly neighborhood dominatrix and expert on being served by people and things as a lifestyle, I feel obligated to chime in. Of the many fun things about being a dominatrix, we also often get to ask these same questions about the submissive person who wants to engage with us in a BDSM kink dynamic, as certainly these service-oriented subs each come with their own distinct human personality.
In this context, a “bot” refers to a chatbot, which is shorthand for a partially or completely-automated interactive messaging service. So I have decided to review some of the more well-known chatbots according to my very extensive list of qualifications: namely that I am recreationally bossy, pretty darn lazy, and have the kind of startup job that makes me the Product/Market fit princess for the average chatbot.
Rating: 5/5 ballgags Growbot exists to give praise, and as someone who is in to worship of all kinds I find this bot’s purpose to be conceptually acceptable.
Much of the emergent dialogue around “what makes a good bot” is not really about whether one can or even should pass a Turing Test, but whether or not the text responses and personality written in to them will help to engage the user to effectively utilize the tool the way it is intended. Slackbot is the spokesbot and mascot for the now ubiquitous team chat client of the same name.
When I interact with this bot, is its personality friendly and helpful? It takes the form of a pretty cute little square with a penchant for plaid and being a brand ambassador.
I rely on my submissives to give me feedback when the kind of commands I’m giving are unclear, or when I’m crossing a limit for them with pain or exhaustion.
Bots should be as forthright in providing proactive reminders of how best to interact with them, especially at the point of failure.
