Sex robot joins TINDER: Real-life cyborg Harmony racks up DOZENS of swipe rights

A FILM director has lifted the lid on the responses he received after uploading a sex robot to Tinder.

Jimmy Mehiel uploaded a sex robot to Tinder as part of an experiment for his documentary about cyborgs, “I Want My Sex Machine”.

The film focuses on robot brothels, but is also an ethical investigation into sex bots and the dating industry.

The 39-year-old, from New York, wanted to see how many people would be willing to sleep with a sex robot.

He gained permission from Matt McMullen – the creator of the world’s first commercially available doll Harmony – and shared photos of the robot on the dating platform.

In an exclusive interview with Daily Star Online, Jimmy revealed a whopping 56% of people polled said they would have intercourse with a sex robot.

He said: “I posted three photos of Harmony including a description directly below that read: ‘Hi, I’m an anatomically correct, sexually capable robot with the most advanced AI available.

"I’m on Tinder to find out if guys are interested in me.”

At first glance the sex robot looks like a real person – which Jimmy credits Matt and his team for their hard work in making them as life-like as possible.

In the second snap, Jimmy used an image of Harmony with her head open to reveal the computer brain.

“I ran the experiment for two hours on a Friday night from 9-11pm on the lower east side of Manhattan [New York, US],” Jimmy explained to Daily Star Online.

“I swiped right (liked) every guy that came up. In the two hours, I ran the experiment Harmony racked up 92 matches.”

Jimmy added: “The real experiment though was when I replied to everyone Harmony matched with one simple message: ‘1 question: Would you have sex with a robot? Yes, no or maybe.”

When the film director asked the question, he received a range of responses, with one guy saying: "You’re disgusting.”

And another person said: "F*** yes. You're the coolest individual I've ever matched here." 

While a third wrote: "F*** yeah... Get with the times."
