If you think you can’t live without your devices now, just wait. Technology is already paving the way for a future filled with robot-derived pleasure.

In her recent blog for The Huffington Post, Dr. Helen Driscoll, a senior psychology lecturer and researcher at the University of Sunderland in the U.K., predicted that attitudes toward sexual relationships with robots will change as technologies that would enable it improve.

“As robotic sexual technology advances, it is also likely that social norms about sex and relationships will change in the future,” Driscoll said. “Robophilia may be alien now, but could be normal in the near future as attitudes evolve with technology.”

Fortunately, there are already a plethora of emerging technologies that could be harbingers of robot-enhanced good times to come. If robot sex is the future, here are a few reasons that the future may be coming sooner than you’d think.

1. Drones May Already Be Watching You Bone

“Surveillance” sounds scary, but “voyeurism” can be super-erotic. Just ask the creators of Drone Boning, a short film that captures couples getting carnal in the Northern California countryside.

Although it’s mainly aimed at having a good time, the music video raises questions about privacy in the era of high-tech surveillance. It’s also a fresh take on porn from an unexpected angle, using a technology that’s quickly becoming commonplace. Eyes to the skies, lovers.

2. We Already Have Virtual Reality Porn

Only a few scant months ago, any mention of porn involving the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset immediately conjured images of dirty Japanese cartoons (more on that later). Not that there’s anything wrong with hentai, but the way some porn production companies are now embracing the format is bound to have broader appeal.

Last month, HuffPost Weird News reporter David Moye got a chance to try out Naughty America’s stereoscopic, point-of-view VR porn. He strapped on an Oculus Rift and assumed the role of both male and female actors in different movies.

“It was all right, but weird because it was POV and I was not used to having a vagina,” Moye said. “They also had a male version and my body hasn’t looked that ripped or tattooed, well, ever.”

3. Robot Hand Jobs Aren’t Just Coming … They’re Here

An earlier iteration of the immersive VR porn movie had a more hands-off approach to robot sex — at least when it comes to the human hand. The “VR Tenga” debuted at an Oculus gaming jam in Japan in 2013.

The contraption is the marriage of a masturbation device (the “Tenga”) and a haptic (touch-sensitive) controller. When synced with a pornographic movie viewed through a headset (in this case, the aforementioned cartoons), the VR Tenga simulates sex — whether it’s a handy, intercourse, or what have you.

Considering the advances made in immersive porn since the VR Tenga hit the scene, it’s only a matter of time before the format goes fully interactive. Hopefully they’ll be able to make the design a little less giggle-inducing. Although maybe that’s just a primitive bias.

      That’s what men get for fucking with “bitches” A lady has no time to be unfaithful because she’s too busy trying to make it work with her partner. 🙂

      True. That’s the difference between girls and ladies (or women) nothing but girls (bitches) I’ve found in Florida.
      my last mistake went against 2 or 3 golden rules. Lost my job over it and had to call cops to get her out of my house.
      Another mistake got me to Florida. Moved my life for her and she was fucking a 20 yr old
      Another mistake got me in this house . Bought for a girl. Once she started working and making (friends) her phone would get lost, lose charge. Left in car . Etc. lol
      So that’s been my luck .
