I suppose there ARE many advantages to having a robot wife.

i.e. a power off button, a reset button.

I think I'll stick with homo sapiens for now though........

Quote Quote by The Miracles
I'm just a love machine and I won't work for nobody but you
I'm just a love machine .............. A hugging kissing fiend

I think it's high time you knew
Whenever I think of you
My mind blows a fuse
When I look in your eyes
My meter starts to rise
And I become confused
My motor cranked electric goes
When I'm sitting next to you
Electricity starts to flow
And my indicator starts to glow

I'm gentle as a lamb
I'm not that hard to program
There's no way that you can lose
Chassis fits like a glove
I've got a button for love
That you've got to use (push it push it baby)
If you look into my power
I am sure you can find out how
To turn me on just set my dial
And let me love you for a little while ooooooh

Intimate Relationships with Artificial Partners

The movie Blade Runner had inter-appliance sex. The movie was based on the book "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", by Philip K. Dick, but I don't remember if the sex was in the book.

I can't get the page to load for some reason.

Regardless, the concept of human-robot marriages makes me think of The Stepford Wives, for obvious reasons.

I'm reminded of this quote from the first episode of Futurama:

FRY: Wait, you're the only friend I have...
BENDER: You really want a robot for a friend?
FRY: Yeah, ever since I was six.
BENDER: Well, okay, but I don't want people thinking we're robosexuals, so if anyone asks, you're my debugger.

Would you like to go back to my place and see my RAM?

While we're on the subject, we shouldn't forget Moe Darklight's sad tale of robot/lizard love:
