This chapter opens with Dr. Trudy Barber reference about female sex robot, a pioneer in the impact of technology on sexual intercourse.

Now some of you thought that is it ethical? Yes, it is ethical and societal ramifications.
What about the danger part of this technology? Let's face it, in 2016 AAAS annual meeting, Yale ethicist Wendell Wallach spoke of his concerns about AI. He said, that "We need more concentrated action to keep technology as a good servant and not a dangerous monster." Usage of this technology is increasing day by day around that world and he also said that "How would you feel about your boyfriend getting a robot that looked exactly like you, just in order to beat it up every night?" Yeah, it is a dark side of a true relationship.
