GIRLFRIENDS will have to compete with sex robots in the bedroom as their boyfriends are set to hook up with android lovers, Daily Star Online can reveal.
essica Szczuka, of University Duisburg-Essen, in Germany, said: “Being in a relationship doesn’t mean sexual fulfilment.
“Sex is a very important part of social interaction.”
Humans will form “very special” relationships and have sex with androids who have female bodies, the expert told Goldsmith’s Love and Sex with Robots conference in London.
She added: “There is no difference between single men and men in relationships with regard to the intention to buy a sex robot now or within the next five years. [If they could].
“They are not just for lonely men.”
Blokes – between aged 18 and 67 – engaged in Ms Szczuka’s study investigating whether “sex robots are attractive”.
As many as 263 took part in the online survey.
