A sex doll manufacturing company has come up with the answer to an increasing demand from female customers for a male sex robot.
Costing between £8,000 and £11,000 (depending on the kinky extras), the silicone robot is 6ft tall, has a six-pack and dark brooding looks, and speaks with a British accent.
The only questionable feature is the name: 'Henry' (no offence to any Henry's out there, but it doesn't exactly scream Lothario).
The bot's creators developed the silicone body to be anatomically correct, topping the whole thing with a robotic head that interacts through an app on the user's iPad or tablet.
While he can welcome his owner home, talk to them about their favourite movie, or woo them with romantic words, Henry is yet to be installed with robotic movements.
This includes the family jewels, although apparently the size of it can be made to order. Matt McMullen - CEO of the sex robot experts Realbotix - revealed their new invention last week, saying the aim is to offer companionship to lonely women across the globe.
In an interview with The Daily Mail, McMullen said: "Women have the same issues of loneliness as men. People call them sex dolls but mostly it's about companionship. In this world of computers, people are missing out on human interaction."
Henry joins his sister (or girlfriend?) 'Harmony' - Realbotix's female robot, which features dozens of interchangeable parts, making her slightly more advanced than her male counterpart.
Apparently, buyers can have Harmony custom made with options to change everything from her eye colour, hair, all the way down to the shape of her butt.
While Henry's not quite there yet, no doubt Realbotix will add these in when the Robohunk generates more interest.
The sex robot market is currently male-dominated - according to a recent US study, two-thirds of males aged 20-61 would have sex with a robot, compared with a third of women.
However, Harvard University mathematics expert Dr Cathy O'Neil told The Daily Mail that Henry might be a good thing for women.
"What's not to love about a dashing manbot? It's possible they will out-perform men in certain areas, not just in the bedroom.
"Perhaps that will encourage men to up their game and find out what women really want. And if they can teach him to give a massage and take out the rubbish, all the better."
