AN ‘ELDERLY male’ sex doll has been created by sex robot company RealDoll.
The grey haired robot has been made at the request of a customer and was posted on the firm’s Instagram account.

According to Sex Tech Guide, the wrinkly model was built specifically for a client.
RealDoll captioned its Instagram post: “Okay we get daddy issues, but this might be a whole new level…”.
The company’s flagship sex doll is the artificially intelligent Harmony doll.
It’s also working on a male sex robot called Henry.
The company has been working on a bionic penis for Henry that will be able to become erect.
This means the elderly sex robot already in the works will be unlikely to come with a bionic penis.
According to Sex Tech Guide, RealDoll CEO Matt McMullen previously joked: “We’re going to be working on some form of very epical insert for Henry, so that he’s able to lift trucks with his penis.”
RealDoll is said to be working on ways to animate the bodies of sex robots.
However, it has to be cautious that the robot wouldn’t be too strong or cause harm.
McMullen explained: “We’re already starting to animate the body. The problem is, when can a body be animated and then be safe to throw into someone’s bed?
“A robotic arm that’s strong enough to lift the entirety of its silicone weight is pretty darn strong, and if something goes a little bit off with that, it could take your head off.”
The elderly male sex robot won’t be able to cause such harm.
It’s unclear how much the custom request has cost but RealDoll’s Harmony robot costs around $12,000 (£8,700).
What is a sex robot?
Robots already build our appliances, clean our homes and make our food – but now they're about to change how we get jiggy.
Sex robots are essentially realistic dolls that have sophisticated movements and “areas” that closely mimic humans so that they can romp.
Prof Noel Sharkey, chairman of the Foundation for Responsible Robotics, said guilt-free threesomes was just one of the potential uses for sex robots.
Others include “teledildonics” – wireless technology which allows a person to stimulate their partner remotely and already exists in vibrators on the market.
Sex bots will become hyper-realistic with features such as built-in heaters to create the feeling of body warmth.
They will also have sensors to react to your touch.
One company is even developing a head that can speak, smile and sing for its robot sex dolls.
Sex doll Harmony claims to be the first to offer an “emotional connection”.
Experts say these specialised robots will start to appear in ordinary homes in the next decade.
