(The perfect topic to argue over a pint)

Between Japanese kissing robots and full-sized "love dolls," it's clear to us that all aspects of technology are barreling toward one inevitable invention: robot hookers.

We're not scientists, so don't ask us any technical questions, but there's one aspect of this phenomenon to which we've given a lot of thought. Is having sex with an ultra-realistic robot hooker cheating? We've considered the issue from every angle, because you want to be prepared when the future arrives.

It's not cheating: A robot hooker is just a machine, so having sex with one is like using a vibrator for women. Purchasing a little robot companionship is perfect because there's no chance of STDs or emotional attachments. My girlfriend should be happy I'm just down at the robot brothel instead of hooking up with flesh-and-blood women at the bar.

Read why it is cheating after the jump.



It is cheating: With advanced technology, having sex with a robot hooker is too much like really cheating. For all intents and purposes, you're having sex with another woman. Plus, what if you want to buy your own robot hooker and keep her in the closet at home? It's a thin line between robot hooker and robot girlfriend.

Bonus questions: What if the robot hooker looks like a celebrity? What if she looks like a person you know? Can your girlfriend visit a robot gigolo?
