Unlike a Park Avenue trophy wife, which can only be bought for millions of dollars, TrueCompanion can find you a lovely lady for a mere $7,000. Meet Roxxxy, the world’s most advanced sex-bot. She makes conversation, and her skin — made from hypo-allergenic silicone — is warm to the touch. Roxxxy also bends in all sorts of wonderful ways, and apparently shivers and moans gently if you touch her in certain areas. Yes, gentle readers: Roxxxy is anatomically correct. Its inventor, Douglas Hines, says he is happily married, so perhaps Roxxxy takes the idea of an open marriage to a whole new level.
