Celebrity Sex Robots Could Thrust Human Intercourse Aside, Experts Predict

According to a new study, intercourse between long term couples is expected to dwindle in the not so distant future, being saved only for special occasions, because robots will be taking care of people’s basic sexual needs.

In as few as 25 years, engaging in bedroom romps with artificial intelligence will be seen as a completely normal, but this may also put you at risk of having your “deepest perversions” revealed to total strangers.

“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,” Dr. Trudy Barber from Portsmouth University said at the International Congress of Love and Sex with Robotics on Monday.

The scientist, who is a leading figure in the study of technology’s impact on our sexuality, believes that machines will help us cherish “the real thing” and make our “real-time relationships more valuable and exciting.”

Robots will become an “extra human race” and help humans explore “our sexual pallet,” she added.

While the sex robots currently on the market will set you back a hefty £7,000 ($8,640), experts think advances in the field will lower the price over the coming years.

However, not all scientists agree that AI taking a more prominent role in the boudoir is a good thing. Some believe the practice, especially when engaged in by teenagers, could lead to unrealistic expectations of sex with other humans. Earlier this year, former United Nations adviser Dr. Noel Sharkey urged governments to stop robotics form being using in the sex industry.

Others worry about the collecting and sharing of personal data that could come with sex machines. Dr. Kate Devlin, a senior lecturer with the Department of Computing at the University of London, Goldsmiths, who also spoke at the event, said that, much like with phones and fitness trackers, “we tick the box of the terms and conditions without checking them.”
