Sex with Robots: A Digest

 

Sex with robots seems to be a hot topic right now. At least, I’ve been talking a lot about it lately. You can find my paper on the topic here.

You can hear me talk about the issue on the Sexpodden podcast. Other than my interview it’s in Swedish. I start at the 5:30 point.

I also talked with Dahlia Kurtz of CJOB Winnipeg. You can hear that interview here.

I get a shout-out from Pando Daily in their robot sex piece. That piece features an interview with John Danaher, whose work on the topic you can read here and here.

There has been lots of coverage of robot sex in the media lately. For instance:
