A silicone robot sex doll weighing eight stone with 32E boobs has become the new sensation for men seeking bedroom comfort in the Irish city of Dublin.
They have been paying about €100 per hour to spend time with the doll, which has a metal skeleton and can be twisted into any position the punter imagines, according to Mirror UK.
Since the doll arrived at the brothel in Dublin, Ireland, less than a month ago, dozens of punters have visited the artificial woman named Passion Dolly.
In a report this week, the Foundation for Responsible Robotics said that android love dolls will become increasingly common over the next 10 years.
Some scientists have even warned that there is a danger that the ‘pleasure-bots’ could lead to a decrease in real human relationships and that they could lead to the objectification of children and women.
Described as “Ireland’s most realistic sex doll”, Passion Dolly is available for rent in the heart of Dublin’s Liberties.
She is being leased out by the hour by two Eastern European sex workers who allow men to pay to spend time with her – but not remove her from the premises.
When punters arrive they are led to a dimly lit room, where the doll is laid on a bed with condoms and tissues provided.
The Eastern European owner explained: “We have her about a month and have had dozens visitors, mostly Irish men and ranging in all ages.
“Some of them are a bit lonely; a few have social problems interacting with women, while others have a fascination with dolls.”
There are currently five makers of sex robots worldwide, with prices ranging from €4,500 to more than €13,200 for a ‘deluxe’ model.
A recent US survey of 100 people found that two-thirds of males aged 20-61 would have sex with a robot, compared with a third of women.
But experts claim politicians and the public need to deal with the ethical issues that sex robots will pose to society and relationships.
