Mr. Roboto

The right wing won’t be happy about this one and no doubt we gays will take the blame: “Sex with robots may sound sci-fi, but finding a silicon soulmate is closer to reality than we think, says a British researcher. Human-like robots with all the working parts will make their way onto consumer markets in the next five years; in 20 years they will become socially accepted; and by 2050 the first human-robot marriage ceremony will take place, says David Levy, the London author of Love and Sex With Robots.” [Edmonton Journal via POQ]
