The Future of Relationships - Sex Robots
“I believe that by 2050 robots will be so lifelike that many people will find it perfectly natural to have emotional and physical relationships with them.” - Dr. David Levy

The sex tech industry is now estimated to be worth 30 billion dollars. Starting prices for a RealDoll are circa $6,000 and falling. 40% of heterosexual men would use a sex doll for pleasure. Is it any coincidence that human to human sexual relationships has been on decline in Japan for years, one of the most advanced robotics nations in the world?
Sex...where are we headed?
