    Personal data handed over to cyber sex toy makers could be stolen by hackers
    This is according to an expert speaking at a cyber sex conference in London
    Agreeing to terms and conditions without reading them could leave users at risk
    One connected sex toy firm is already been sued over claims it was keeping tabs on intimate data


Sex robots could be a target for hackers who want to get access to details of your sexual perversions.

That's according to Dr Kate Devlin who made the warning during a talk at the 'Love and Sex with Robots' conference in London this week.

She says that connected sex toys could store incredibly personal data, raising concerns over how it could be used in future.

'But do we want people to know when we have sex and how we have sex?' Dr Devlin asked.

She referred to a case in which a woman sued sex toy firm Standard Innovation, makers of the WeVibe, earlier this year  - claiming the company was keeping tabs on intimate data collected by the smart dildo and its corresponding app.
