While you might think that having sex behind your partner's back would count as cheating, it seems that many people don't think this is the case if the other 'person' is a robot.
A shocking new study has revealed that 40 per cent of Britons don't see sex with a robot as cheating.
Despite this, one in three Britons said they would be 'horrified' if one of their friends started a relationship with a robot, with 16 per cent saying they would try to convince them to abandon it.
The new sex robot survey was commissioned by UK online streaming service, Now TV.
The survey comes in relation to Now TV's programme, Westworld, in which people can visit a futuristic theme park to live out their darkest fantasies.
Professor Noel Sharkey from Sheffield University, who recently published a consultation report with Foundation of Responsible Robotics said: ‘Robotics and artificial intelligence is a long way off the technical sophistication of the theme park in Westworld, but we’re already seeing dolls being used in the adult entertainment industry and we can expect robots to join them soon.'
The results showed that more than one in three people in the UK would consider having sex with a robot.
And 40 per cent wouldn't see this as cheating.
The survey also revealed that 39 per cent of people in the UK think that we'll be having relationships with robots instead of humans in just 34 years.
