This week on Future Left: everything you ever wanted to know about sex robots--AND JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS. We're talking with John Danaher, a lecturer at NUI Galway and a blogger at www.PhilosophicalDisquisitions.Blogspot.Com about a new anthology he co-edited with Neil McArthur Robot Sex: Social and Ethical Implications. This book is available for purchase whereever books about having sex with robots are sold.

John will help you confront all of your questions: Does "making it" with a robot "count" as sex? Should you be nice to your robot lover? How can we mitigate reproducing toxic gender roles and relationships? Also: Should sexual abuse toward robots be criminalized?

All that and more this week on Future Left!
