The popularity of the artificially human machines has grown directly in tandem with their realism.
And not only will people be having intimate relations with them - they may even fall in love with them too.
Dr Helen Driscoll, a leading authority on the psychology of sex and relationships, said 'sex tech' was already advancing at a fast pace.
"We tend to think about issues such as virtual reality and robotic sex within the context of current norms.
"But if we think back to the social norms about sex that existed just 100 years ago, it is obvious that they have changed rapidly and radically.
"As virtual reality becomes more realistic and immersive and is able to mimic and even improve on the experience of sex with a human partner; it is conceivable that some will choose this in preference to sex with a less than perfect human being."
Dr Driscoll adds: "People may also begin to fall in love with their virtual reality partners."
Although it might not appeal at first, he said, "once you have a story like 'I had sex with a robot, and it was great!' appear someplace like Cosmo magazine, I'd expect many people to jump on the bandwagon." "It may sound a little weird, but it isn't. "Love and sex with robots are inevitable."
According to Dr. Pearson, advances in sex tech will provide opportunities for those that otherwise wouldn't have them.
His report marks 2050 as the year that human/robot sex overtakes human/human.
And the technology is ready to go this year.
Matt McMullen, the CEO of "love doll" manufacturer RealDoll, is busy making a new toy (the first one is called Harmony) that will blink, open its mouth and even have a chat with you.
The ultimate aim is to create a doll that appears to behave as if 'she' enjoys the act of sex.
Meanwhile, another robotics expert has launched a campaign to ban the development of sex robots in the UK. Dr. Kathleen Richardson, a senior research fellow at De Montfort University in Leicester, has called the development of sex 'bots a "disturbing" trend that needs to be stopped.
"Sex robots seem to be a growing focus in the robotics industry and the models that they draw on - how they will look, what roles they would play - are very disturbing indeed," she said.
Extremely poor substitute for intimacy though.... but guess women will be mad now because there is competition...Lol
