Four In Ten Americans Want To Have Sex With A Robot | Men's Health Magazine Australia

This Is How Many People Actually Want To Have Sex With Robots

With the rise of Artificial intelligence (AI), possibilities seem endless. In the last year or two, sex robots have become real albeit a taboo topic. But just how many of us would do the deed with a sexbot? More than you think. 

According to a new survey featuring 2000 Americans conducted by sex toy retailer EdenFantasys.com, four in ten people would have sex with a robot, while one in four would try it once just to see what it was like. 

Meanwhile, 16 per cent of respondents suggested they’d have sex with a robot regularly to fulfil their needs.

But just how much is a sexbot worth to them? The poll revealed that, on average, Americans would fork out US$1666 for their dreamy droid with men willing to spend up to US$500 more than their female counterparts. 

Further 41 per cent of Americans wanted their robotic partners to have emotions and be able to talk while a small percentage wanted to have sex with a robot that looked more cyborg than human.  Most alarmingly, 16 per cent preferred to have sex with a robot than a human.

“Robots are entering human spaces everywhere and, as the research shows, sex will not be an exception,” says Fred Petrenko of EdenFantasys. “Creating a perfect sexbot will be a huge challenge both scientifically and commercially. But we are still a few years away yet.”

“There’s a huge distance between a sex toy and a sex bot, but the idea of a fully functional sex robot is certainly enticing for many Americans,” adds Petrenko.

“EdenFantasys is excited about a real potentials of the market.”

Other key findings include:

  • 39 per cent call sex with a robot, masturbation. 
  • 30 per cent find that if your partner has sex with a robot, it’s cheating. 
  • 53 per cent said it was cheating if the robot was attractive and had emotions. 
  • 55 per cent of Americans expect sexbots to be the norm with 50 years.

Is it time to jump on the bandwagon?
