Mathematician says it is 'entirely possible' robots will outperform men and women of the future could choose to live with menbots instead.

According to top mathematician Dr Cathy O'Neil from Harvard University, females of the future could get spoiled by 'dashing menbots' who also do the dishes.

According to O’Neil, it's a basic human need to want someone to love and have sex with but most women also look for someone who does their fair share of chores around the house.

The mathematician says it is 'entirely possible' that robots will outperform men and women of the future could choose to live with menbots instead.

Currently there are around five makers of sex robots worldwide, with prices ranging from around £4,000 ($5,400) to more than £11,600 ($15,700) for a 'deluxe' model.

The market for sexbots is currently 95 per cent male dominated but that could all be about to change.

Accoriding to Dr O’Neil, it’s the men who should be worried as it is entirely possible that robots can outperform them. She further added that the robots could be good at doing the dishes and other household chores.

Currently men are more willing to have sex with a robot than women are. One US survey of 100 people that found two-thirds of males aged 20-61 would have sex with a robot, compared with a third of women.

While they indeed are becoming more realistic, scientists say it needs at least 50 more years before robots are able to move and talk spontaneously like a partner and have facial expressions that look truly human.
