SEX robots could lead to the breakdown of marriages as husbands become addicted to the “objects of obsession”, a relationship expert has warned.
As more and more lonely spouses turn to bots to fulfil their sexual desires, psychologists say they can drive a wedge between couples.
Marriage psychologist Dr Becky Spelman warned bot babes could spark strong feelings of love because of the realistic way they can mimic human emotions.
She told the Star Online: “Unlike run-of-the-mill sex toys, sex robots are designed to emulate human beings to an extraordinary degree, and may trigger feelings of love, protection, anger, and more, and become objects of obsession.”
‘OBJECTS OF OBSESSION’
Dr Spelman said it’s important to set clear boundaries for the sex robots “role” as they can significantly change a marriage.
Bot babes are set to become so real that we may not be able to tell them apart from humans, it’s claimed.
Artificial Intelligence could create a population of babe bots that will be “walking among us” incognito.
Speaking to the Daily Star Online, sex robot expert Brick Dollbanger said eventually the cyborgs will be so real in appearance and their thought process and speech they will be “everywhere”.

He said: “I know enough about robotics to understand that, in the next few years, robots will be walking among us.
“We’ll see them everywhere, in some shape or form, they’ll be there. In 100 years, we won’t be able to tell them apart from humans.”
His future forecast is based on analysis of what the robotics industry can already do and are set to do.

But Mr Dollbanger’s predictions are also informed by his experiences testing Harmony, a AI-powered sex robot manufactured by by trailblazing US-based firm Realbotix.
That doll already has the ability to react during sex, with eyes blinking and head move around during intercourse.
It comes as a sex expert recommended introducing a romping robot to improve your marriage or relationship.
