The idea of having sex with a robot might sound like the plot of the latest science fiction blockbuster.

But a new report has revealed that a third of Britons wish it was a reality for them.

The report by LELO, dubbed the Sex Census, quizzed thousands of Britons about their sex habits and desires. 

It reveals that a third of Britons have used, would use, or would ‘maybe’ consider using a sex robot if an affordable option was released. 

And we’re not just talking sex dolls here – sex robots refer to sophisticated devices that are integrated with AI, allowing them to move and talk just like real people.

The idea of having sex with a robot might sound like the plot of the latest science fiction blockbuster. But a new report has revealed that a third of Britons wish it was a reality for them

For the report, LELO surveyed 4,000 participants about their sexual experiences and desires in 2023. 

While a third of Britons said they’d like to have sex with a robot, the results revealed a huge split among genders. 

Almost half (43.9 per cent) of the men surveyed said they’d be up for a robot romp, while just 21 per cent of female respondents said the same thing. 

Sex robots are often confused with sex dolls – sex toys that are the same size and shape as a human. 

However, sex robots are much more sophisticated, and so come with a much heftier price tag. 

In its report, LELO highlights two popular sex robots called Henry and Harmony 3.0, which were created by AI robotics firm, Realbotix. 

Henry was released back in 2018, and not only boasts ‘superhuman sexual performance’, but is also apparently good at cracking jokes.

At 6ft tall with a rippling six-pack and brooding dark looks, the droid can also welcome his owner home and discuss their favourite TV show or film, according to its creators.

He can even woo them with romantic phrases and words to their favourite love poem or song.

However, Henry isn’t cheap, costing between £8,000 and £11,000 ($9,940 – $13,668) depending on optional extras.

Meanwhile, Harmony 3.0 is priced at £11,700 ($14,551) and features a self-lubricating vagina which can be removed and put in the dishwasher. 

Speaking to the Daily Star, Matt McMullen, CEO of Realbotix, said: ‘Customers will be able to get a body equipped with internal heating, lubrication and touch sensors.

‘Those touch sensors will communicate with the AI so that you are able to create reactions in both movement and sound.’

Mr McMullen claims that sex with robots could help to improve skills in the bedroom, by making people less afraid to be adventurous.

He said: ‘Having sex with the robot is only going to help you with your skills.

‘It will get you to last longer in bed, try different positions and be more adventurous.’

He even suggests interactions with robots will go beyond sex, and that men could seduce, charm and chat with the sex robot.

However, other experts have expressed concerns that sex with robots could become addictive.

Joel Snell, a robotics expert from Kirkwood College in Iowa, said: ‘Robotic sex may become addictive.

‘Sexbots would always be available and could never say no, so addictions would be easy to feed.

‘People will rearrange their lives to accommodate their addictions.’

MEET HENRY THE SEX ROBOT

‘Henry’ is a £8,000 ($11,000) sex robot. 

He boasts ‘superhuman sexual performance’ but he’s apparently good at cracking jokes too.

At 6ft tall with a rippling six-pack and brooding dark looks, this droid can also welcome his owner home and discuss their favourite TV show or film, creators say.

He can even woo them with romantic phrases and words to their favourite love poem or song.

Costing between £8,000 and £11,000 ($11,000 – $15,600) depending on optional extras – he is the world’s first ‘companion’ robot aimed at females. 

Every part of him can be built to order – including the size and shape of his manhood – though the developers have not yet found a way of making that part fully robotic.

At around six stone, Henry’s a bit of a lightweight and is yet to be endowed with robotic movement in his body.

His silicone body is anatomically correct in every way, and is topped by a robotic head that users interact with through an app on their iPad or tablet. 

Matt McMullen, a married father-of-five from San Diego, California, and CEO of Henry’s creators Realbotix, unveiled the ‘manbot’ earlier this year saying it would offer ‘companionship’ to lonely women all over the world.

Realbotix already produces the controversial ‘Harmony’, a female robot with dozens of interchangeable parts, allowing owners to alter everything from eye colour to hair and even bottom shape.

The market for ‘sexbots’ is currently 95 per cent male-dominated and some have criticised female versions as ‘objectifying’ women.
