A robot fetish is, quite obviously, an attraction to robots. When robots aren't readily available, people dressed up and/or acting as robots will do too. When that isn't enough, there are those who fantasize about transforming into a robot. To each their own.
This special group of fetishists call themselves technosexual and can be divided into two parts. As mentioned above, one group of robot fetishists wishes for an android partner--one that would comply to its owners every whim. The other group is drawn more to the transformation into a robot. Not surprisingly, this is another fetish that is dominated mostly by men.
Naturally, there are various forums online dedicated to the fetish, including a couple groups on Yahoo. Phone sex roleplaying for the technosexual exists too. Don't forget the android that was unveiled in Japan in the early 2000s--one of the first human-like robots to be developed--or "the world's most sophisticated sex doll," Roxxxy.
It's a little strange to think there are those who fantasize about replacing real intimacy with sex robots. While it does play nicely into the master/slave dynamic of BDSM, to me it takes the bite out of it when a robot fulfills your every wish. Though I suppose the general rush of dominance could be somewhat the same.
Robot fetishism was featured on the short-lived show Strange Sex,
which can be viewed here.
What do you think about robot fetishism? Can you see the desire in replacing a real partner with a robot?
