Fetish 101: Robot fetishism

Robot fetishists usually refer to their fetish by the initials "ASFR" which stems from a now-defunct website.
Robot fetishism, considered part of technosexuality, is divided into two usually separate fantasies:
  • Sex with a person dressed in a robot costume, a person acting like a robot, or sex with pre-made sex android robot.
  • Sex with person who has been willingly or unwillingly transformed into a robot or being transformed into a robot oneself and subsequently having sex. The transformation is of key interest in this fantasy.

If you are a Duran, Duran fan, or remember the video to Electric Barbarella, this robot thing is nothing new to you.

If you ask me, the best part of the video is when she freaks out and malfunctions. According to one interview I read, it’s this possibility for malfunctioning that is part of the draw. When she’s broken you get out your tool kit and fix her.

Wanting to see and hear an actual human talk about sex with robots, I hunted up a video. I’d be interested to hear what others have to say about this guy’s thoughts on why he wants a sex android.
