Malaysia Wants Nothing To Do With Sex Robots

An academic conference called Love and Sex with Robots has been shut down by Malaysian authorities.
Malaysian authorities were less than thrilled with the title. Inspector General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar declared the conference illegal, saying, "There's nothing scientific about sex and robots." (Video via The Star Online)
The conference was founded by David Levy and Adrian David Cheok. They foresee a future where sexual relations with robots could be commonplace, and founded the conference to more deeply examine issues that might arise from that. (Video via The New York Times)
