Sex robots might be so amazing that we stop having sex with humans…

Advancements in technology change our lives every year in ways we could never have imagined in the past. It has revolutionized the way we consume music, take photographs, argue with our friends, and play games. So what’s the next frontier? One American research fellow at Kirkwood College thinks it’s sex, and that we should be weary of our new robot sex-god overlords. (think the word is wary!)

That researcher is Joel Snell and, in an interview with the Daily Star, he recently outlined the dangers of the coming golden age of robotic sex. After all, what’s the point of going out and facing rejection trying to find a partner when you can experience every physical desire you’ve ever had in the comfort of your own home, with a robot whose enthusiastic consent is programed in.

“People may become obsessed by their ever-faithful, ever-pleasing sex robot lovers. People will rearrange their lives to accommodate their addictions,” Snell warns.

The impact this could have on marriages is both positive and negative.
