According to UK Futurologist, Dr Ian Pearson, by the year 2050 it could be more common to have sex with robots as opposed to humans.
Sex robots have made a large impact on the sex-tech industry. Just this year alone a brothel has opened in Paris charging customers up to £100 for 30 minutes with a sex robot.

“I think people could buy into these objects, and they could become more normalised in our culture. I think once that happens, that really could be the end of humanity, I tell you.”
– Prof. Kathleen Richardson – ‘The Campaign Against Sex Robots’

‘The Ethics of Sex Robots in a Digital World’ seeks to explore the modern day ethical dilemmas of sex robots, and looks towards the future of the sex-tech industry.
