Sex robots are already "redefining" human existence due to their realism, an expert has claimed.
Author Jenny Kleeman has penned a new book, Sex Robots & Vegan Meat, after visiting artificial intelligence (AI) factory Abyss.
The San Diego-based company is producing some of the world's most realistic sex robots.
They can hold conversations with human owners and plans are currently in motion to install them with vision that will allow them to recognise people.
And Kleeman, a journalist and documentary maker, was so taken aback by her discoveries that she believes sex robots are sex to have a profound impact on human relationships.
She writes: "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."
Kleeman previously said she believed sex robots are on course to become so realistic some people may prefer them to real humans.
She 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."
