Rapidly improving technology means that brothels made up of sex robots could start being produced.
Law professor John Danaher has done research into human enhancement and artificial intelligence and believes robots could be a good substitute for humans, as it would lower the risk of sexually transmitted diseases.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: “The cyborgs can cater for desire for sexual variety, freedom from constraint and complication and fear of lack of sexual success.
“Technology may become better at developing emotional bonds with their clients.
“They won’t need to ‘fake it’ the same way as human prostitutes.”
John also claimed that the sex robots could stamp out trafficking, as the robots would be cheaper than humans.
