Indeed. Even the suggestion of "lips" came up as I was typing "list". It was quite confusing for a second. A common mishearing, it seems.

Why kiss? More like a vagina.

Technically more correct is 'vulva', as far as... kissing. It requires minor expertise to know the difference in terminology, although fine distinctions are not so important where the rubber, so to speak, meets the road.

To stay on topic, I'm speculating that this is yet another job a robot can do.

We are not going to live to see it, but if robots will become like us, we will probably have other problems with them than being without a job because of them. Relationships between humans and non-human entities are a popular theme in sci-fi. But yeah, too early to wonder about that yet.

A garden hose and some chlorine bleach should do the trick.

The great-great-grandfather of these robots...

'The Writer', the most complex of three automata made by Pierre Jaquet-Droz and his sons in the period 1768 to 1774.

And if he is having sex, it's not weird. Thanks for your insight though. :thumbup:
