Read the short story “The Digital O” in Cleis Press’s anthology Best Erotic Fantasy & Science Fiction, edited by Cecilia Tan and Bethany Zaiatz. “The Digital O” follows a pair of lovers who disagree on what to do once their service robot develops an interest in sex.
The two of them — his lover and his lover’s machine — took up less than half the bed. Theoretically, Rick supposed he could change into his pajamas, slide between the thermal sheets, and let sleep soothe away the aches and pains of the past eleven hours on robotics-repair swing-shift. But the available mattress space was just a byproduct, an unintentional result of the way Corbin tightly spooned against the service bot so much more enthusiastically than he’d ever clung to Rick. No. Sleeping in the space created by whatever bizarre event had transpired was out of the question.
