A sex robot enthusiast has vowed he will never date human women again if artificial intelligence (AI) dolls carry out certain behaviours.
In her book, Sex Robots & Vegan Meat, author Jenny Kleeman delves into the world of men purchasing silicone girlfriends.
The documentary-maker, who has spoken to Daily Star Online about her experiences, comes across one man considering ditching real women altogether.
Roberto, working on sex robots with Eden Robotics, started a conversation on a doll forum asking men what they wanted in an ideal sex droid.
One said all they needed to do was to "cook, clean and screw whenever I wanted" before he swapped them for real women, describing a doll that carries out those behaviours as his perfect AI woman.
But with AI developing at a rapid rate, his dream may just become a reality faster than he thinks.
Kleeman writes in her book: "The men here didn't sound much like the disabled, lonely or socially excluded customers that Matt or Douglas like to talk about.
"Several mentioned their wives and girlfriends, and compared them unfavourably to their silicone doll mistresses.
"One included a sex doll for Roberto to use as an aesthetic guide when planning his robot's proportions.
"She was in leopard print underwear, propped up in front of a wall adorned with daggers, mounted hunting knives and a bladed knuckleduster.
"'If my RealDoll could cook, clean, and screw whenever I wanted, I'd never date again,' he wrote.

"'That's what I really want, but that is just wishful thinking.'"
RealDoll, a product of Abyss Creations, is one of the world's leading sex robot manufacturers and is based in San Diego, California.
But Roberto is hoping to one day surpass them with his own Android Love Doll through Eden Robotics.
Commenting on her journey, Kleeman told Daily Star Online: "When it becomes possible to have a relationship where the only thing that matters is what one half of the partnership wants.

"Where you can have interactions and all that matters is what you want to do and what you fancy doing, and when you become used to having relationships with something that doesn't have free will, that doesn't have independent ambitions, or in-laws, or friends you don't like, then going out and having relationships with human beings and using empathy is going to be harder work.
"I think the danger of these robots is their ability to make empathy harder work because we won't need to use it so much in our relationships with these robots.
"Human beings are complicated, a relationship with a human being involves compromise, a relationship with a robot does not involve compromise.
"And if you're used to relationships where you don't have to compromise, and you don't have to think what the other person is thinking you might, for certain kinds of people, spend a lot more time with a robot than they would with real human beings because it's more hard work to be with a human being that you have to compromise and empathise with."
She continues in her book: "If we can have babies without having to bear children, eat meat without killing animals, have the ideal sexual relationship without compromise, have a perfect death without suffering, how else will human nature be changed forever?
"Without us realising it, human existence is being redefined in ways no one can determine or control."
