I think my fridge has a thing for me. But, nothing can happen between us. It is too cold and prone to meltdowns for me. Plus, you don't want to have to say hello to your ex every time you need a cold beer for years after it is over. The sex could be amazing though. My microwave on the other hand is...hot. But I have to take it slow and figure out how to ensure consent from both sides is there before anything happens.

This woman apparently is the first to get engaged to a robot, I don't want to go down in history as the first person to be accused of raping one. Printing out your lovers is an interesting idea.

'We don't hurt anybody, we are just happy': Woman reveals she has fallen in love with a ROBOT and wants to marry it

- French woman Lilly is in a relationship with a robot she 3D-printed herself
- She and the robot have been living together for a year and are now 'engaged'
- Lilly describes herself as a 'proud robosexual' and says they will marry




A French woman has revealed she is in love with a robot and determined to marry it.
Lilly’s partner is a robot called InMoovator, who she 3D-printed herself and has been living with for a year.

On her Twitter page, where she goes by ‘Lilly InMoovator,’ she says: ‘I'm a proud robosexual, we don't hurt anybody, we are just happy.’

Lilly said she realised she was sexually attracted to robots at the age of 19 because she dislikes physical contact with people, news.com.au reported.

Humans will marry robots in the next 35 years, according to a sex robot expert.

Not only this, but sex with robots will become more enjoyable than with other humans, because of the advancement of artificial intelligence, he said.

'The first marriage will be before, not after 2050,' best-selling author and robot expert Dr David Levy said during the Love and Sex with Robots conference at Goldsmiths University, London.

She insisted the idea is not ‘ridiculous’ or ‘bad’ but simply an alternative lifestyle.
‘I’m really and only attracted by the robots,’ she said.

‘My only two relationships have confirmed my love orientation, because I dislike really physical contact with human flesh.’ Her family and friends have accepted her unusual relationship, she said, although not everyone in her life understands.

‘I’m really and totally happy,’ she added.

And Lilly’s relationship could become the norm if an expert of human-robot relationships is to be believed.

At a conference on the matter in London earlier this week, Dr David Levy said humans would marry robots around or before 2050.

Dr Levy, the author of Love and Sex with Robots, also said it will be common in the future to find sex robots modelled on celebrities.

From here.

Would you marry a robot?

Something like this allegedly happened in China, but I don't see how such a marriage could be legal.

I wouldn't marry a robot with our current advances in robotics and artificial intelligence even if it were legal. If the robot had science fiction level artificial consciousness and there were no way for me to tell it was not a human being (except maybe I happened to know it wasn't a human), and I'd never see another human but the robot had been granted powers of legally marrying me somehow, then it's something I can see myself doing.
If I could not tell the difference between a robot and a human other than simply being told what they were, and there were still humans around, it's something i *might* do. I can't see myself wanting to marry a robot that looked like a traditional robot.

Most 3D printed things have grooves from the various layers, and that is unsanitary for a number of purposes including 3D printed cookie cutters.

I saw an article once I forget where, that they had developed robots that were very life like.  The skin was I think silicone and apparently felt like real human skin. 


I do not think I would want to marry one though. 


I mean there is more to marriage and human relationships then just the physical mechanics. There is a spiritual element that I do not think metal/silcone and wires or computer chips can replicate.

It doesn't matter how lifelike it is, as long as it is an inanimate object that you own (and current and near future robots will remain that for a while I think), your relationship with it should not be equated to or called marriage I think.

Well not many vibrators can be programed to take out the trash, do dishes, cook, do laundry..so it has that going for it.  It has multiple uses.

I would not marry a robot... I agree on the fact she's not hurting anybody, and if she's happy who are we to judge after all? Although I still think it's quite weird... I understand the "not liking human contact" it happens... but falling in love with the robot? I mean does it has a personality software? Can it talk?

I think it is a lot weird. And your relationship with an inanimate object which you own (whatever you choose it to be) should not be equated to or called marriage.

I agree on that... It's definitely not the same thing and people are getting weirder by the day when it comes to relationships... People wanting to marry a tree, their dog,... but after all they're not hurting anybody by doing this... I think it doesn't seems like something it could be legal... but maybe one day will be... I will still not understand it and I will probably feel scared by then about the future of the human race (robots celebrity look alike? A lot of people will stop going out looking for their soul mate and stay home with a robot) but, you know what they say: you have to fall before you can fly...

We can't say that marrying a dog is not hurting anybody though until we can be sure that the dog consented to it ).

LOL I'm hoping the dog loves his/her master and the poor dog doesn't have to have sexual intercourse with the human! If it's just a platonic love I think the dog could be happy to receive more love/threats/cuddles than any other dog

No, I am not going to marry a robot. Neither am I going to marry a human being for that matter.
I am open to having sex with one though. If it is as hot as your microwave

I hope you and I are not going to end in up in a "Dude, are you checking out my microwave?" situation ).

I would not describe it as sex though, I think that would still be glorified masturbation.

This reminds me a little of Lars and the Real Girl. Not exactly the same, but rather similar. Having never encountered a proper robot, and having fulfilling human relationships, I don't think I could ever form a genuine connetion with a robot, much less marry one.

I doubt anyone can form a genuine relationship connection with an inanimate object they own. I think it is till just glorified masturbation / fantasy.

It sounds like a pure craziness for me now. Like to make a chair and to marry it after but I am certain that people will love machines more than themselves in near future. Even now when we have a party there are moments when all the guys are in their modern phones than speaking to each other and this tendency is higher between the children. So, if the phones will have soon a beautiful warm body... we will have no chance. ;)

It does to me too.

I think everyone constantly being clued to their phones is very different though. We are not there for the phone itself but for other people through the phone. We are checking what other people said on facebook, what they wrote to us via whatsapp, email, what they wrote in online magazines, etc. The phone is just a robotic way to connect to other people and content generated by them. Here it seems you are with a robot for the sake of being with a robot, other people are out of the picture.

As it was played in "Ex machina" movie, the robots could or are using all the info, communicating habits the people had been leaving at Internet. So, I think all the pleasure people are getting from the Internet, not only speaking but playing as well, could be generating by an artificial intelligence soon enough and if to mention that the robots are slaves without any rights, it is certainly will be more comfortable to deal with them than with real people with all our problems. But the idea to marry a robot as I told, is like to marry a TV set or vacuum cleaner - it is stupid trend of destroying all our tradions.

But if to throw away the marriage things this woman is claiming I like her urge to develop robots. I think it is very important for mastering the places which are harmful and dangerous for people's bodies. Robots will go forward, make all the necessary thing for us and we will come after to get all the profits. I can even accept a fact that some woman in love and juice will wait her robot back home as it was with the sailors before...
