Megan, a woman in her 20s, answered an interview with The San Francisco Standard about robot taxis. For privacy, the date and time of using the taxi and the real name are hidden, but The San Francisco Standard confirmed that Megan used the robot taxi with a receipt.

Megan said of her experience of acting in a taxi, ``We were flirting as soon as we got in. I was wearing only a robe and no underwear, so I felt like I was ready. It was.'

Megan's partner is Alex (pseudonym), a man in his 30s. According to Alex, the two had sex in a taxi a total of six times, including three 'productions'. Alex laughs and says, 'There's no one to tell you, 'Don't do that.' When you feel better and have a serious partner on board, you can escalate to other actions.

A Cruise spokesperson also said, 'We strive to keep our services safe, clean, and open to everyone. We will take appropriate action against those who violate our guidelines. I will do it,' he said.

The San Francisco Standard describes the actual usage of Megan and others as 'creative usage', but the opinion that sexual activity will take place in the robot taxi is not new. For example, in a paper entitled `` Autonomous vehicles and the future of urban tourism '' published in 2019, Scott Cohen of the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom said, ``Hourly hotels This will impact urban tourism as it is likely to be replaced by connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and sex plays a central role in many tourist experiences.'
