You’re getting several human needs satisfied without ever actually having to come into contact with a living, breathing human being. It’s a stroke of genius, really – albeit somewhat creepy.
But apparently this love story was evolving long before global social-isolation kicked in. In fact, Kazakhstani bodybuilder and actor Yuri Tolochko has been dating his sex robot girlfriend, Margo, for over a year now.
And, it seems the pair are ready to take the next step together.
Yep, Yuri popped the question to Margo in December 2019 – she must’ve blinked twice for ‘yes’, or something – and now the pair have the date set for 27th March (pandemic impending – I guess she wouldn’t have a lot fo family attending).
And according to Sick Chirpse, Yuri has even paid for various cosmetic procedures to ensure his fiancée looks and feels her best come the big day.
FYI – this candid Instagram video proves the relationship is basically EXACTLY how you’re imagining it. Just make sure you’re watching in private.
Here’s what Yuri had to say regarding his forthcoming nuptials:
“On March 27, we will become husband and wife.
“It was very important for me that the party took place on that date, World Theatre Day, and my baby supported me on this.
“I often read comments that Margo should not be able to replace living women.
“Why not? We are talking about completely different colours, emotions, and this is the whole trick.
“When I presented her photo to the world, there was a lot of criticism and she began to develop a complex so we decided to have plastic surgery.
“She has changed a lot. At first, it was hard to accept but I got used to it later on.
“It was at a real clinic with real doctors.”
Aww, they’re going to have the cutest little robot babies. I say good luck to these crazy kids.
