Russia's first robot brothel has opened in Moscow, hoping to attract clients attending next month's World Cup including England fans and even players taking part in the tournament.
The Dolls Hotel is located in Moscow's business district, and guests can choose from an array of sex robots with names like Lolita, Sasha, and Isilel.
Rooms at the 'legal brothel' cost between £17.75 and £29.50 per hour – not including the sex doll.
The total cost after paying for the robot rises to around £60 an hour, a price owners are confident football fans will be more than willing to pay.
A spokesman for the brothel said today: 'We really are waiting for a flow of visitors during the World Cup – and we look forward many foreign clients, including from England.
'This is why we are now getting special permission to welcome foreign visitors.
'As for the players – if they are allowed by their coaches and managers, we will only welcome them.'
The 'sexbots' are described as 'warm' with 'mechanical movements and an artificial brain'
The founder of the hotel, Dmitry Alexandrov said that 36 per cent of Russians are unhappy with their sex lives.
'Creating a full scale leisure adult centre in Russia is not only a legal and safe way to improve your sex life, it is also a step towards fighting one of oldest problems in Russia – the violent exploitation of women,' he said, referring to prostitution.
'It is also a great help to people with psychiatric disorders.
'In Spain, for example, 30 per cent of clients are people with mental or physiological problems.'
After each client, the dolls are thoroughly disinfected with 'special solutions' according to 'international standards', he said.
This guarantees there will be no risk of infection, he claimed.
'Some men simply cannot improve their sexual relations with women on their own, which leads to latent dissatisfaction, which, in turn, can evolve into aggression,' he said.
'This issue can only be solved by a professional 'call girl,' who is ready to hear him out and make his sexual fantasies come true for money.'
But sexologist Alexander Poleyev insisted that sex robots cannot replace real humans.
'No technology will transmit how our skin reacts to touch,' he said.
'It is what largely shapes our attraction – not only visual impression – and results in genuine sexual pleasure between men and women,' he said.
Guests are able to choose between dolls with different 'personalities', such as Lolita who is described as 'independent, self-sufficient and always ready for everything', or Natasha who is 'the true personification of femininity and tenderness – shy and obedient, with a nice smile'.
A Russian client called Denis said World Cup fans would be impressed
'The dolls are very realistic, I would have never thought so,' he said. 'The orgasm is brighter and longer than with a real woman.
'The only thing is to use enough lubricant.'
