When I think about a grinning, glassy eyed doll that is the same size as me, the first word that comes to mind isn’t ‘sexy’. Creepy, yes. Horror novella, probably. But what I really struggle with what makes them appealing to a whopping 73% of men.

So I decided to talk to my favourite guys to see what they thought.

My Hardcore Research:

1. So, off the bat, would you use a sex robot?

Lurve or pygmalia?

3. How do you feel about men who consider them ‘girlfriends’ or ‘partners’?

4. Should we legislate surrounding how these robots act and behave? (for example, regulation on the extent to which robots recreate assault or rape)
