Expert has claimed that sex robots could one day be used in prison to help pedophiles and rapists deal with their twisted urges.
Prescribing life-like sex droids to offenders might ‘cure’ them of their urges, according to robotics experts – with one expert suggesting offenders could have one in their cells.
Speaking of the Love and Sex With Robots conference late last year, Marc Behrendt of ULB University in Brussels said child sex robots could be ‘a first step by mental health specialists’.
Dr. David Levy, author of Love and Sex With Robots told the Daily Star, ‘I can see the government getting involved in the case of criminals.
‘You go to jail and while you’re in jail, you have a sex robot in your cell. And when you come out, you have a sex robot for so many months, like being on probation.’
However, Child sex robots do not currently exist, but there is an underground market for lifelike child sex dolls for such.
Reports say several pedophiles have been jailed after importing the dolls into the UK.
