Here's a piece on the development of sexbots and some of the implications of them becoming generally available. What it boils down to is that for men, you had us at the word "sex". For women the attraction is more nuanced. Notwithstanding that some 80% of the toys in the neighborhood sex shop are tailored for women, women are less approving of keeping Commander Data in the closet for those lonely nights.

Suggestion: To penetrate the women's market*, a new male form sexbot will need to be able, in addition to the basic stuff, to take out the trash, run the vacuum, and wash her car. "I bought it for the house cleaning" will be the female equivalent to "I only subscribe to read the articles".

*So to speak.
