Introduces the issues and arguments of the book. Sets the stage for the arguments that follow by addressing preliminary questions: What are sex robots? Do any exist right now? Why should we care about their creation? Sex robots are coming. They are robots with humanlike touch, movement, and intelligence that are designed and/or used for sexual purposes. Their creation raises important philosophical, social, and ethical questions for users and the broader society.
