(NEW YORK POST) – A company which makes ultra-realistic sex robots has claimed their dolls are so lifelike that people are marrying them… and they are “saving people’s lives” as a result.
The robots are becoming more sophisticated — and lifelike — by the day, as the high-tech sex toys continue to grow in popularity.
But the products are already so advanced that people have started falling in love with their sex toys — and The Daily Star reports that some have even tied the knot with their bot.
According to RealDoll, a company behind a range of startlingly lifelike sex robots, the futuristic lovers are actually saving the lives of the lonely men who wed them.
A spokesperson for the company said the most popular use for the bots is still as a purely sexual partner.
But they added: “There are many reasons we have heard from our customers, ranging from the sexual aspect to a domestic partner to art pieces enjoyed simply for their beauty.
“While we believe we provide a product that has many applications we are sometimes astounded at the impact we make on some customer’s lives.
“We have had customers marry their dolls, say that we had saved their lives because they felt like they had nothing to live for after the death of a spouse or the end of a relationship.”
The dolls on offer have proven so popular that there is a three-month waiting list to get your hands on one of the plastic partners.
With the option to customize almost every feature, sex dolls offer lonely punters a chance craft their dream woman.
RealDoll’s flagship product, called Harmony, comes with 42 nipple color options and 14 different dishwasher-friendly labia to choose from.
Apparently the talking doll can also orgasm, although she’s not much help around the house — and not always the most switched on companion.
They do say that money can’t buy you love, but it can certainly buy you Harmony – provided you have $14,353 to spare.
