Women will choose robotic sexual partners over human partners in the next ten years. Or at least, futurologist Dr Ian Pearson, who has compiled a report on the future of sex, seems to think so.
Pearson has said that sleeping with robots will soon be as common for women as watching porn. He claimed that 'robophilia' may become so popular that it will overtake human intercourse and will be fully-fledged by 2050.
In the report, commissioned by Bondara, Pearson claimed: "A lot of people will still have reservations about sex with robots at first but gradually as they get used to them, as the AI (artificial intelligence) and mechanical behaviour and their feel improves, and they start to become friends with strong emotional bonds, that squeamishness will gradually evaporate."
Many people have voiced concerns over this growing trend, fearing the robots could soon replace human interaction.
