Forecast: Sex and Marriage With Robots by 2050
Humans could marry robots within the century. And consummate those vows.

"My forecast is that around 2050, the state of Massachusetts will be the first jurisdiction to legalize marriages with robots," artificial intelligence researcher David Levy at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands told LiveScience.

My forecast, in 2051 the GLBT will be suing to allow marriage between same sex androids.

At first, sex with robots might be considered geeky, "but once you have a story like 'I had sex with a robot, and it was great!' appear someplace like Cosmo magazine, I'd expect many people to jump on the bandwagon," Levy said

I can think of a lot of other terms I'd consider, not just geeky. I didn't realize Cosmo held such influence; I wonder what Psychology Today will say about it.

I remember when I was a kid, I had a big crush on Annette Funicello; but, I also liked this character---maybe I was just ahead of my time.

Quite the turn on heh? The only thing: reprogram the voice to Annette's; and put on some Mickey Mouse ears.

But what told you it was female?!

Oh, btw, the only thing you'll need to keep a marriage going is batteries!

How could it be marriage if you didn't have to endure "the look" and work for hours to figure out "what did I do?" :^)

Imagine a robot with the personality of Zachary Smith!

You'd have to make sure they didn't add any laser features, don't wan't any looks that could kill.

We should have a contest---see who can come up with a futuristic view even more insane than this idea.

Wasn't this what the movie "Bicentennial Man" was all about?

We have the technology, or pretty darn close. They've already got those little "Room-bot" robots that vacuum. I think my wife would say they're already more than half-way there in creating the perfect husband.
