In this sex-obsessed era, increasing number of people are purchasing sex robots primarily to fulfill sexual satisfaction. With the promise of sexual bliss from machines comes questions about morals and ethics.

On top of that, recent reports confirm that the intimate data you turn over to sex robots manufacturers could be used to get into your private internet information and ultimately put your privacy at risk.

The recent complaint from a sex robot user against the sex toy company, Standard Innovation, eventually led to a case charged against them, Daily Mail reports. The customer accused them of keeping track of her intimate data as recorded in the dildo.

Although the records can be used for quality enhancement of future products, the exposure of certain intimate details can prove dangerous. Situations like this highlight the sinister motive of companies to gain access to pertinent private information and flame suspicions on how exactly they will use the information.

Interestingly, this one disadvantage doesn't discourage potential buyers in any way. In one study done on 263 straight men ranging from the ages of 18 and 67, a shocking 40.3 percent of the participants reveal that they are interested in sex robots and are inclined to buy one in the near future.

This gives rise to another hidden danger such as the overexertion of robots on men. This means that since robots don't get tired, the prolonged sexual activity can lead to over exhaustion on humans.

With regards to the current design of sex robots, Dr. Kate Devlin from the Department of Computing in London, expresses concern as this encourages the objectification of women. "Women are massively underrepresented in the technology world and we see that reflect in the product", she tells Daily Mail.

Currently, with the incredible advancement of technology, sex robots are now installed with an artificial intelligence that provides a more human-like feature that emulates human connection and deepens social satisfaction, Rappler says.

This paves way to a new and unique characteristic of sex robots that will make them infinitely more irresistible and riddled with way more risks than we can handle.
