How should robots be?

Big problem with option no.1

If robots are completely like humans, even looking exactly like them, the problem is that humans may fall in love with them. Imagine if you fell in love with a robot. And then you have the thorny problem of whether you should be permitted to have sex with them, or even marry them. This problem is found in some science fiction, e.g. Tower of Glass by Robert Silverberg. Better to have them looking like proper robots. After all, no-one wants to have sex with R2D2, at least as far as I'm aware. :-)

Yeah but if the robot really loved they're partner they would tell them they are a robot would they not??
