Richard chats to academic and expert on sex robots, Kate Devlin about her thoughtful and fascinating book on the subject, Turned On. Can Richard finally prove to his wife that having sex with a robot does not count as cheating? How far away are we from creating something that looks like Gemma Chan in Humans? Are robots more likely to be companions than full-time lovers? Will they rise up and kill us or fuck us to death? Should we be thinking of more interesting possibilities than humanoid sex robots and can Kate make Richard's time travel virtual reality dreams come true?
