The stunningly real sex bots, are a part of a growing £20billion industry aimed at pushing the boundaries to create dolls who are just like real women.
But the dolls are not cheap. They come with a hefty price tag of £11,00 ($15,000) each.
In a crowded market dominated by companies in the US and Asia, Abyss Creations’ RealDoll Harmony robots stand out as they are incredibly realistic.
The sexy dolls which have soft make-up, hair wigs and flawless figures can carry on a conversation, remember things about their user and be customised to suit the needs of its owner.
The new wave of sex robots are being equipped to learn about their owner in a bid to create a more intimate relationship between robot and human, according to the firm.
One of its latest offerings, a doll called Harmony, is so life-like it can “create an engaging simulation of a relationship”.

The doll has special features designed to heighten sex – like soft lips, a hinged jaw and ultra soft tongue”.
Harmony also talks in a Scottish accent, and can be programmed with 18 different personality traits, including “sexual”.
And while, sex dolls have been around for quite some time, initially produced in Japan in the early 1980s, the latest dolls are highly sophisticated and are made from high-grade silicone.
Matt McCullen, the CEO of Abyss Creations says his dolls are light years ahead of those original dolls as his have a flexible skeleton and are made over a period of 80 hours.
The dolls can also “retain heat” in the G-spot, according to its website giving its user added pleasure.
They have 18 different types of body types – suitable for all users – according to the company which is based in California.

Mr McCullen told The Guardian: “There are a lot of people out there, for one reason or another, who have difficulty forming traditional relationships with other people.
“It’s really all about giving those people some level of companionship – or the illusion of companionship.”

Meanwhile, Sergi Santos, from Barcelona, is another inventor who has created a doll with unique features.
Mr Santos’ doll called Samantha, has a truly functional vagina and mouth.
The AI bot has been created with dark brown hair and green eyes, and is truly capable of “emotional closeness” according to Mr Santos.
Another firm that is vying for the top spot is True Companion, owned by Douglas Hines.
He created Roxxxy, a sex doll, following the loss of a close friend in the 9/11 attacks. He is currently working on his 16th version of Roxxxy.
But it’s been an uphill battle as she was deemed “too clunky” and “too manly” when he showed her off at the 2010 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas.
He was ridiculed because the bot looked clunky, manly, had a square jaw and her lips didn’t move when she spoke.
Since then, he has refined Roxxxy and she now has a cleaner look and sensors on her hands so that when she is touched she says “I love holding hands with you.”
But in other settings she can be in ‘Frigid Farrah’ mode or ‘Wild Wendy,’ when she’ll tell her user “I know a place you could put that hand”.
The firms face competition from inventor, Roberto Cardenas, 31, who runs Eden Robotics in Las Vegas, is hoping to change the game with fully functional robots that could put themselves in “20 different sex positions.”
Mr Cardenas said that the dolls “won’t complain and are ready 24/7”.
