Ever fallen in love with a robot? Married a robot - or dreamt about it? Wondered about sex with a robot, and wished there were an X- (or XXX-) prize for this problem, a competition for robots to pass a sexual Turing test?

For two controversial views on the subject, tune in to the latest podcast episode, Human-Robot Love.
