Humanity has dreamed of only one thing since first gaining consciousness: creating robots to have sex with. Well, maybe.
Sneak was intrigued to see that, while some are worried that the development of robots may spell the end of work, or the world, others are concerned that the biggest peril is the development of AI technologies housed in human-looking forms that can be used for sex.
The straight-faced Campaign Against Sex Robots is worried that a world with robots for sex will further enforce stereotypes about men and women's roles in the world, and stop some people forming healthy attachments to other humans.
"As researchers we encourage a wider debate and discussion about the development of sex robots and the implications for society," the website states.
Sneak knows the fear well. He's seen enough episodes of Futurama to know the risk that sex-bots pose to the future of the Earth, as you can see in this Vimeo video.
Of course, not everyone agrees. Douglas Hines, chief executive of True Companion, which is developing a robot called Roxxxy (video below - incredibly safe for work), told the BBC that he doesn't think having sex with a robot will be a big part of the appeal.
"We are not supplanting the wife or trying to replace a girlfriend. This is a solution for people who are between relationships or someone who has lost a spouse," he said.
"People can find happiness and fulfilment other than via human interaction. The physical act of sex will only be a small part of the time you spend with a sex robot - the majority of time will be spent socialising and interacting."
Sneak isn't sure what to think about all this, to be honest. Undoubtedly there will be some out there who would benefit from having a sexy-time companion robot and, if so, this should be encouraged.
However, as the Futurama video so terrifyingly shows, a world in which sex robots become the norm could spell the end of the human race, or at least cause some to expect the same unthinking obedience in a partner as a robot, because we all know that's not how it works.
For now, though, let's at least enjoy the fact that we've reached a sufficiently advanced technological era that the moral dilemmas posed by sex robots is a real debate.
