Attention all men: You are now obsolete

Hard wired: Now you'll be able to buy MALE sex robots too as artificial 'companions' with bionic penises are set to go on sale this year

Matt McMullen created female sex bots last year and aims to release male ones
They will have robotic penises and will be able to 'go' for as long as user wishes
Experts say they could be more popular than sex toys like vibrators and dildos

Male sex robots with bionic penises will be rolled out this year according to the pioneer of pleasure behind the popular female versions that dropped last year.

Matt McMullen, founder of Realbotix, is the man who created Harmony, an artificial intelligence app that syncs up with a robotic head system.

The application enables users to match an AI personality with a humanoid robot head, to create the most realistic sex doll imaginable.

Harmony allowed the android companions to talk, learn and satisfy customer's sexual desires.

Currently there are only only female versions of Harmony avatars and robotic heads - and they cost around £11,000, but Matt thinks there is a demand for male versions.

'We're working on a male version of the robot AI,' Matt told Daily Star Online.

'We'll eventually have a male and a female platform available.'

Matt, whose firm is based in San Diego, California, previously revealed he had blueprints to create a male sex robot with a bionic penis.

He said customers will be able to plug the robot in so that it can go as long as the user wants.

On the size of its manhood, Matt said the male sex robots will come in all shapes and sizes.

'There's rebuilding that needs to happen on both fronts to create a male platform.

'We're working hard on that and that's one of the next big things we're looking to get up and running.'

World leading AI researcher Dr David Levy told the Daily Star Online that male erotic cyborgs could be more popular than sex toys such as vibrators and dildos

He said: 'I'm sure women will find robots equally appealing as men.

'If women are that interested in getting satisfaction from a vibrator, imagine how the same women will feel having a robot they can put their arms round them and having the robot squeeze them.'

Matt was scrutinised for objectifying women after he created a female sex robot with 'big breasts' and 'pornstar features'.

But the CEO said he considers his creations more than sex dolls, and refers to them as companions.
I, for one, welcome our new robot companions. :D

Can they also move furniture, walk the dog, and take out the garbage? I don't want sex all the time, but I sure would find satisfaction in having a 'bot to do routine chores!

Well the female ones can pick out our wardrobes and tell us to chew with our mouths closed. We all must compromise.

He's an idiot or deliberately dishonest. Of course there will be a difference between sexes on amout spent in practice and answers to 'would you want one of these if cost was not an issue' survey, as there is for the vast majority of consumer goods. We won't know the magnitude or direction of the difference until the product category is widely available, although obviously in this case trends suggest male spending will continue to exceed female spending.

I actually have a battery-operated jar opener in my pantry - I bought it for my spouse some years ago. So I already have that robot.

Most women already own a battery-operated sex robot. This just comes with a humanoid male body attached.
A minute's thought suggests that the very idea of this is stupid. A more detailed examination raises the possibility that it might be an answer to the question "how could the Germans win the war after the US gets involved?" - Captain Seafort, in a thread proposing a 1942 'D-Day' in Quiberon Bay

Say, do you want it to be a threesome with your wife? Or a foursome with your wife and sister-in-law? I'm up for either. :P

To be fair, it's usually working robots we lose jobs to.
