    A campaign has been launched calling for a ban on the development of robots that can be used for sex.

    Sex dolls already on the market are becoming more sophisticated and some are now hoping to build artificial intelligence into their products.
    Those working in the field say that there is a need for such robots.Dr Richardson, a robot ethicist at De Montfort University in Leicester, wants to raise awareness of the issue and persuade those developing sex robots to rethink how their technology is used.


    she told the BBC.She believes that they reinforce traditional stereotypes of women and the view that a relationship need be nothing more than physical.


    she said.
