Sci-fi films always suggest a future that we're not sure if we're ready for when it comes to sex. And that is, we're going to have sex with robots. Now, science has said that we will indeed be banging artificial beings in the not-so-distant future.
Will you be ready for that kind of future?
An expert on the psychology of sex has claimed that not only does she expect having sex with robots to be socially acceptable by 2070, but it may be more popular than intercourse with other humans.
What If robots looked like this?
Will we miss human contact?
“Currently the lack of human contact could be harmful. Humans are naturally sociable and a lack of human contact could lead to loneliness which is linked to various mental and physical health problems,” [Dr. Helen Driscoll of the University of Sunderland] said. “But, in the long term, technology may overcome these problems.”
“When eventually there are intelligent robots indistinguishable from humans – apart from their lack of bad habits, imperfections and need for investment – not only are we likely to choose them over ‘real’ humans but psychologically we will not suffer if we are not able to tell the difference.”
"We won't be able to tell the difference."
But since 2070 is a long way more to go, we guess sticking to humans will still be trending.
