Robosexual is a term to describe people (or sentient robots, if technology ever advances that far) who are sexually and/or emotionally attached to robots. Generally, the robots to which robosexuals are attracted are humanoid.
Like some other sexual orientations, robosexuality only goes in one direction: from human to robot. This is because robots are still a long way from sentience, and because even if a person were in a hypothetical relationship with a hypothetically sentient robot, that robot would not be robosexual towards the person, since robosexuality is exclusively an attraction towards robots (and not humans such as the hypothetical human in question).
A Sexual Orientation of the Future
Obviously, there are very few robosexuals today, but robosexuality is bound to become common in the not-too-distant future. Dr. David Levy, an expert in human-robot relationships, said that humans will be marrying robots by 2050.
