WORD OF THE DAY! 5/24/12.


agalmatophilia [a-gal-mah-toh-fee-lee-a]
noun
1. Sexual attraction or romantic affection toward a statue, doll, mannequin, robot, or other similar figurative object. The attraction may include a dsire to have an encounter with one of these objects/subjects, animate or inanimate, or watching encounters between such objects, or the thought of transformations involving such objects.

EX. At first, agalmataophilia probably seems pretty crazy but it is, actually,  quite common in science fiction. Some popular examples of robo-sexual (reference: Futurama) relationships between automatons and "hyoomahns". There is of course a plethora of manga/anime with such a premise, such as Chobits.

More example robot-human relations would be would be Marvel Comic's kinky marriage of Scarlet Witch and Vision, Ishinomori's depressing Pinocchio robot Kikaider and Mitsuko, and the super creepy Johnny-5's relationship with Stephenie in Short Circuit. It goes all the way back to Fritz Lang's Metropolis's robotic seductress.

My favorite? Tootsie Noodles + Megagirl 4 Ever!

(Expect more about this on Monday. *wink wink*)
