Robosexuality refers to mutual attraction or sexual relations between humans and robots, and oftentimes involves humans and robots of the same gender. Currently, it is legal in New New York and Space Massachusetts. Proposition ∞ has proposed the legalization of robosexuality in the rest of America. Generally, robosexuality is deeply frowned upon by the religious community and casually frowned upon by the general public. In Proposition Infinity it is revealed that Professor Farnsworth hates robosexuality because he had a past relationship stolen from him by a robot.
