And I like to roam the land

Thorny issue, can dildos give consent? I would argue that with no meaningful consciousness, there is not issue.Surely the question about consent should be asked here - you can't (and quite rightly) marry someone who is judged unable to give 'informed consent'. Yet you can 'marry' an inanimate object that is, by definition, unable to give any kind of consent at all. So we presume that these inanimate object have no feelings or emotions to be transgressed by this 'marriage'?
There is a next stage to this, which I don't even want to think about...
However, I guess it's something that's going to come up with increasingly intelligent sex robots in the future.
