    So here's a moral question for the TSR community:

    Human-like robots are becoming very advanced now and it won't be long until they are passable for people.

    If they made a realistic 'sexbot' that was able to provide you with the pleasures that you sought in the bedroom, would you consider this to be infidelity?

    What do we think? Where do we stand on this issue TSR?

    I would be hurt and consider it cheating personally. But it's a tough one I suppose.

    No more cheating than using a sex toy and I could see couples using them in a relationship like a threesome without the emotional baggage.

    No I don't think so.

    With that thought process a dildo could be considered low level cheating...

    But I respect the view that some may consider it cheating.

    I wouldn't consider it cheating, but rather strange.

    as long as the robot does not get emotionally involved... for instance

    i) it mocks one of the humans for deficiencies in the bedroom department

    ii) it gossips to other robots and gives away private information about humans

    iii) it refuses to stop when asked to

    Bear, me and you are going to fall out soon if you keep taking my lines. :hmpf:


    AI sexbot = cheating
    Non-AI sexbot = fair game
