Sex with robots is predicted to become so popular that it will eventually overtake human intercourse by around 2050.
An expert has revealed that robot sex will be ‘mind blowing’, and the bots could even improve your skills in the bedroom.
While there have been concerns that sexbots will replace human relationships, Matt McMullen, CEO of RealDoll, a sex doll manufacturer, suggests that this is not the case.
He believes robots will become an option for people looking to spice up their love lives.
McMullen spoke to the Daily Star about what sex with robots will really be like.
His San Francisco-based firm currently sells realistic sex dolls for around $5,000 (£3,857) a unit.
It recently launched a project harnessing AI to create sexbots that have customisable personalities and can talk to their owners in romantic as well as entraining ways.
“It’s going to be an amazing new experience that no one has ever had before.We’re trying to create the desire to have sex beyond the physical. In order for people to find themselves attracted to the AI – she’s really funny, she makes me laugh, she has the same interests as me. So then blokes want to take it to the next level – to give them that feeling – “I’d really like to have sex with her.”
Mr McMullen says that sex with robots could even help to improve skills in the bedroom, by making people less afraid to be adventurous.
“Having sex with the robot is only going to help you with your skills. It will get you to last longer in bed, try different positions and be more adventurous.”
But Mr McMullen suggests interactions with robots will go beyond sex, and men could even seduce, charm and chat to the sex robot.
“People might have sexual fantasies about bondage or threesomes or specific fetishes – but this is a whole new thing altogether. People will think, I’ve had sex with women – now I’m going to have the chance to have sex with a robot. To actually engage in a conversation with an AI in its own right is really cool. But to throw in the possibility you can seduce the AI and have sex with a robot – I think it’s an intriguing idea to most people.”
But other experts have expressed concerns that sex with robots could become addictive. Joel Snell, a robotics expert from Kirkwood College in Iowa, said…
“Robotic sex may become addictive. Sexbots would always be available and could never say no, so addictions would be easy to feed. People will rearrange their lives to accommodate their addictions.”
