July 16, 2018 – MORE access to artificially intelligent sex robots could fuel a rise in sex addiction, warn psychology experts. The controversial pleasure droids are being manufactured by a range of companies in the US and Japan, including Californian sex tech startup Realbotix, makers of the Harmony 3.0 superdoll … These male and female bots are expected to sell for around £8,000 in the UK. While their creators claim they can prove a boon for struggling marriages and lonely or disabled men, experts aren’t convinced about their benefits to society at large. Psychological therapist Dr Thaddeus Birchard told Daily Star Online that life-like robots featuring AI could be another outlet for sex addicts to express their compulsion.
