Or so I've heard. From a friend.
Doesn't really matter. There will be people desperate enough to sell themselves for less than anyone would pay for a robot even if there were sex robots available on a per-hour basis. The only way sex robots would take over from human sex workers would be if the economic situation were so good that there were no desperate people willing to sell their bodies for a buck, and the social situation had changed so much that their buyers didn't also get a kick out of using humans for sex that they would never get from paying for a machine to simulate it.
