YouTubePassionDolly sex robot has been brought to Dublin for prostitution
With enormous 32E boobs the robot, originally from the US, is expected to draw in hundreds of intrigued males in the coming months as more and more people hear about the futuristic female.
Niche websites are being opened as men actively seek sex with robots, while the creepily life-like dolls are sold online for hundreds, or thousands of pounds.
In Ireland, the “realistic” robotic prostitue named PassionDolly has had dozens of visitors in less than one month.
Described as "Ireland's most realistic sex doll" - Passion Dolly is available for rent in the heart of Dublin's Liberties.
She is being leased out by the hour by two Eastern European sex workers who allow men to pay to spend time with her - but not remove her from the premises.
When punters arrive they are led to a dimly lit room, where the Passion Dolly is laid on a bed with condoms and tissues provided.
The Eastern European owner explained: "We have her about a month and have had dozens visitors, mostly Irish men and ranging in all ages.
"Some of them are a bit lonely, a few have social problems interacting with women, while others have a fascination with dolls." The authors of the report from the Foundation for Responsible Robotics suggested this week that the robots could encourage objectification, abuse, rape and paedophilia.
An hour of Dolly's time costs £100 while a half an hour is available at £50.
And her owners insist she could be good for elderly men, no longer able to find a partner.Mon, July 10, 2017

Passion Dolly is an ultra-realistic sex doll for your pleasure
The ad for Dolly on an adult website reads: "Are you wasting money paying for sex... or watching porn?
"Why not have the full pleasure of having sex with the most beautiful girl whenever you want and as many times as you want? Passion Dolly is an ultra-realistic sex doll for your pleasure.
"She is made of either TPE or medical silicone and has a metal skeleton as internal structure to allow you to bend and twist the doll's torso, head, arms and legs to pose in any sexual position you please."
The eight stone doll imported from America has a metal skeleton covered in silicone and responds to vibrations moving like a human.
In a report this week, the Foundation for Responsible Robotics said that android love dolls will become increasingly common over the next 10 years.
Some scientists have even warned that there is a danger that the 'pleasure-bots' could lead to a decrease in real human relationships - and that they could lead to the objectification of children and women.
The report claims that realistic sex dolls will become commonplace over the next 10 years - but that it will take 50 years before they are able to move and talk spontaneously and have facial expressions that look truly human.
There are currently five makers of sex robots worldwide, with prices ranging from £4,500 to more than £13,200 for a 'deluxe' model.
A recent US survey of 100 people found that two-thirds of males aged 20-61 would have sex with a robot, compared with a third of women.
But experts claim politicians and the public need to deal with the ethical issues that sex robots will pose to society and relationships.
Belfast-born Noel Sharkey, a professor of artificial intelligence and robotics at the University of Sheffield, and Dr Aimee van Wynsberghe, assistant professor in ethics and technology at a Dutch university, said governments need to introduce legislation to stop abuses of this technology.

A robot pre-programmed to resist sexual advances was effectively a rape victim, said Prof Sharkey.
He said: "Some say it's better to rape a robot than a person, but others think it would encourage rape."
Sharkey also wants to see the government take pre-emptive action to stop child sex robots entering the UK.
