On Monday night’s episode of Q&A, guest panellists were invited from the Festival of Dangerous Ideas.
In other words, the topics up for discussion were not your average dinner party conversation starters.
The episode didn’t defy expectations, with the very first question discussing the concept of sex robots and whether it’s a viable solution for people who struggled with intimacy.

Many other questions touched on how technology plays a role in our relationships, with artificial intelligence being a big part of the show.
This did not sit very well with some viewers, who took to Twitter to express their distaste for the show’s choice of topic.

I watched for about 5 minutes. Could not stand it.
