To be considered a robot does it have to be too big to fit in the bottom drawer of the night stand? If not then there are lots and lots of sex robots out there now.

Perfection

The robots didn't intend to decimate humanity. It just happened that way.

It was the robotic love dolls that started it. The robots, programmed to serve humanity's every whim, made them perfect, much more so than any woman. For women they created perfect mechanical men. Why would anyone endure the foibles of flesh and blood when one can have perfection?

Unable to bear offspring, the robots created perfect mechanical children to satisfy human maternal instincts.

The passing of the last human was an unheralded event. But on that day humanity, or at least humanity's progeny, had at last achieved perfection.

By law, it wouldn't be. But girlfriend/wife would likely think so. Looking at another girl and imagining being with her would be good enough to consider cheating for some.

So if a guy has sex with C3PO would that make him gay? ;-)

This is so dehumanizing. I mean really, if we can invest in a robot we could surly invest in the time to develop good, real relationships with others who we can have a mutually beneficial relationship with. I never want my mother cared for by something so ingenuine - because I want her to feel wanted, cared for, and respected for all she's done for me. Wish people would get rid of the electronics and start interfacing again.

What if the robot helped her to feel independent and self-suffiecient in her own home?

LOL...No, the personal attention of family and friends that really care is the best and only acceptable option, she's a great lady and deserving of personal attention by those who've benefited by her grace and generosity :)

That's like saying you're cheating if you give yourself a handjob.

As far as elderly question goes, a service robot could be a great thing. This isn't about family members not wanting to care for another family member. It's about someone wanting to maintain some sort of self sufficiency without a family member having to be there all the time. I don't want my child having to care for me when I'm at the point where need help all the time and I sure as heck don't want to be in a nursing home if I don't absolutely have to!

If you asked me when I was 20 I would have said no way would I stick my special purpose in a mechanical device. Having 36 more years around mechanical devices, I would say..Hell No!!!

I'm getting old and I'm somewhat disabled and must have a person come clean once a week. I'd love a robot that looks like Adrienne Barbeau (circa "The Swamp Thing"), puttering around.

Sir I couldn't agree more, they certaintly don't make them like Adreienne Barbeau anymore, THAT is the quintessential of sexy.

I used to watch Maude which I hated because of her.

Faved for use of the word puttering. Makes me think of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and the song "Everybody Ought to Have a Maid."

I just bought my brother a small photo from "A Funny Thing .."! Love that movie!
