Actors roleplaying AI bots IRL?

hi, just looking if someone has any clue about the topic.

i recently watched a swedish podcast were they interviewed a AI expert. during the podcast, he said that there are users of AI bot (likely erp) who hires actors or equivalents to ”act” as their virtual AI lover IRL.

My questions then,

•Does anybody know about such a thing? i have tried google without any results, and frankly have no clue where to look.

•Could it be that due to the adult content/service which is likely illegal in many countries, making people stay quiet about it?
