Humans could soon be having sex with robots.
According to Dr Helen Driscoll, progression with technology means the way in which humans interact with robots is set to change and going by the current rate of change, physical relationships will seem primitive by 2070.
She said: "We tend to think about issues such as virtual reality and robotic sex within the context of current norms.
"But if we think back to the social norms about sex that existed just 100 years ago, it is obvious that they have changed rapidly and radically.
"Robophilia may be alien now, but could be normal in the near future as attitudes evolve with technology."
