Sex with robots? An industry review

May 15, 2011

Ashley Madison, an online dating site for married people seeking affairs, reported a massive surge in female memberships the day after Mother’s Day.
Women represent 65% of adult sex toy purchasers, particularly “smart” toys and vibrators while men provide a huge market for porn videos, games and paid websites.
