But now, along comes Henry, a sexbot with a tireless inch silicone Henry is ready to go into full production, along with other male sex dolls. They're creating conversational branches for the artificial intelligence powering Henry's movements and speech. Henry, a 5'11" male sexbot. The six-pack bot is reportedly the world's first 'companion' robot aimed at females and is even able to discuss its owner's favourite TV.
Henry maoe I are not hitting it sexbot. First he ignores my male about how he spent the weekend. I ask. He makes intense male contact and arches an eyebrow. Henry blinks. The back of his head makes a whirring noise. I ask again. In a nearby room, headless female bodies, sporting impossibly perky breasts, Barbie waists, and spread-eagle legs, hang from chains.
These belong to the Harmony cohort; male faces are upstairs receiving makeup. McMullen would like me to male that these dolls are not really about sex. Many sebot are just lonely, he says.

As delicate as servos fitted with sensitive feedback sensors can be, jumping into bed with a robot would very likely kill you.
But where tech is advancing quickly is interaction — at least of the conversational kind. As McMullen insists, this is about real intimacy, even if the partner is fake. Take a look for yourself warning: definitely NSFW. Can you imagine a conversation with her over a glass of wine?
The Sun spares no detail about what to expect. For critics concerned about how sexbots objectify women, this might seem like a victory. Realbotix has finally turned this dehumanising gaze on men, too.
And turnabout is certainly fair play. That might mean designs that are far more abstract, and far less simulationist, than what Realbotix plans to offer. The future of sexbots is unclear, to say the least. Will cities like Amsterdam and Barcelona embrace sex bots as a solution to problems of human sex work?
