Given the three laws of robotics, humaniform robots would make the best sex partners because it causes them to perceive a sensation akin to pain if they do not do everything in their power to please a human being. This would translate itself to other areas of the relationship meaning that the robot would have an unbreakable sense of duty and loyalty to its human partner. The robot would also be at the mercy of every whim of its owner, no matter how mundane and would complete each task set with relish.
I've given this some considerable thought and have decided that if they were to become available to purchase for a low price, the human race would die out within a millennia. Possibly less. It might be worth it.
