Having sex with robots as a concept has been around for decades, but are we now reaching the point where mainstream society is willing to accept it?
According to award winning artificial intelligence engineer, David Levy, the time is nigh. ‘The social and psychological benefits will be enormous, almost everyone wants someone to love, but many people have no one,’ he argues.
‘If this natural human desire can be satisfied for everyone who is capable of loving, surely the world will be a much happier place.
‘Many who would otherwise have become social misfits, social outcasts, or even worse will instead be better-balanced human beings.’
