Sex robots could prove popular among men, according to a new poll.
Some 15 percent of 1,800 males surveyed by Sky News said they could see themselves having a "fulfilling, emotional relationship" with an android.
However, only two percent of women would be up for a romp with a mechanical machine.
Sex expert Dr Helen Driscoll believes robot sex could soon "mimic and even improve" human intercourse.
She said: "It is conceivable that some will choose this in preference to sex with a less than perfect human being."
