Doug Hines (R), owner and designer for TrueCompanion, has help carrying Roxxxy, a prototype of what Hines said is the world’s first female sex robot complete with artificial intelligence and equipped to carry a conversation.
Sex bytes for married couples — who will soon get more action from robots than each other, experts predicted at a tech conference Monday.
The use of sex robots to push buttons between the sheets will be considered “socially normal” in 25 years, said experts at the International Congress of Love and Sex with Robotics in London, according to the UK Telegraph.
But the trend will ultimately be good for humanity, predicted Dr. Trudy Barber, an expert on technology and sexual intercourse.
It will bring more value to real human relationships — and getting laid the old-fashioned way, she said at the conference at the University of London.
“I think what will happen is that they will make real-time relationships more valuable and exciting” she said.
“It could be that we are so busy with our lives, we are so embedded in our technological narrative that the idea of engaging in long-distance sex and robot sex is actually a natural process in our evolutionary cycle,” she said.
Sex robots such as Rocky or Roxxxy True Companion have already hit the market for $8,600 — and similar products are only getting cheaper and more likable, the Telegraph reported.
Some tech experts have warned that widespread use of robots in bed will breed a generation of teenagers who have no clue what real sex is all about.
Adolescents risk losing their virginity to humanoids and growing up with unrealistic sexual expectations, experts have said.
In June, scientist Dr. Noel Sharkey — a former adviser to the UN — called on European governments to prevent robotics from being hijacked by the sex industry.
Robots will soon become an “extra human race,” he predicted. “The question is not when will it become acceptable — but when will we integrate.”
