Empirically Speaking about Robotical/Human Sex

Recent studies suggest that the claims for the health benefits of having sex and relationships with robots are not empirically supported, which probably means that private health insurers, the VA, and medicare will not be covering the costs anytime soon for humans having sexual relationships with robots, which, interestingly, if they had done so may have reduced the the number of STD cases, a number that has been on the rise of late. Consequently, the verdict is still out on whether or not human/robot companionship and sex will bear fruit for those in need: lonely people, pedophiles, sex offenders, and so on. What's more, in the future, issues concerning consent, reproduction, the legality of marriage, etc. will have to be reckoned with.
