There will be sessions on humanoid robots and electronic sex hardware

Other topics that will be covered include 'teledildonics', or cybersex toys

The event will run on 19th and 20th December at Goldsmiths, London

Conference was previously banned in Malaysia for being 'illegal'

Sessions will focus on a variety of topics, from humanoid robots and teledildonics, which means cybersex toys, to intelligent electronic sex hardware.

'Within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction and Human-Robot Interaction, the past few years have witnessed a strong upsurge of interest in the more personal aspects of human relationships with these artificial partners,' a statement from Goldsmiths says.

Registration is open for anyone wishing to attend, but it costs L200 ($244) for a full price registration, or L125 ($152) for a student.

Sex with robots is set to overtake human sex by 205, some have said.

But a robotics expert warned last month that robot sex could become addictive, and will someday even replace human-human sex entirely.

Like many other technologies that have replaced humans, robots could even surpass human technique, to become better lovers, he claims.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Joel Snell, a robotics expert from Kirkwood College in Iowa, said: 'Robotic sex may become addictive.

'Sexbots would always be available and could never say no, so addictions would be easy to feed.

'People will rearrange their lives to accommodate their addictions.'
