They’re traditionally portrayed as females, but it seems sex robots could soon also be available in male form.
Matt McMullen, CEO of Realbotix, has revealed his ambitious plans to release a male sex bot this year.
Realbotix has previously released a doll called Harmony, which includes an artificial intelligence app and robotic head that can talk, and perform sexual acts on users.
Until now, the head, which costs a staggering £11,000 ($15,000), was only available in a female form.
But Mr McMullen has revealed that he is soon aiming to release a male version.

Matt McMullen, CEO of Realbotix, has revealed his ambitious plans to release a male sex bot this year
Speaking to Daily Star Online , Mr McMullen said: “We’re working on a male version of the robot AI. We’ll eventually have a male and a female platform available.”
The male version will differ from the female in both personality and voice, according to Mr McMullen.
He added: “It’s the obvious, the gender; both in the personality and the voice and then obviously the male physicality of the robot.

In terms of penis size, Mr McMullen said the ‘sky is the limit’ for the male robots
“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.”
The news comes shortly after Mr McMullen said that he wanted to create a male sex robot with a bionic penis ‘better than a vibrator.’

He said: ‘We have equal interest in male and female versions of what we’re doing.
“I feel it’s important to offer both. We get a lot of people gravitating to the fact that we’ve just made a female robot so far.
“People have accused us of objectifying women, but it’s important that people know that this is more than a sex toy.
“We have a lot of female customers interested in buying male robots as companions to talk to and interact with.”
