Robotosexual refers to an individual attracted to humanoid robots or individuals cosplaying as robots.
This is different from robosexual. One of the most notable differences is that robotosexuals do not have to be human, ultimately making it much more accessible to robotkin or other robotic kintypes. This could also apply to AILAI (AI loving AI) as neither party is human. Another point is that the robots don't even have to be robots, robotosexuals are also attracted to individuals cosplaying robots, An example of this is most of the Steam Powered Giraffe fandom. For most Robotosexuals, the robot doesn't even need to look like a robot, simply the knowledge that their partner is a robot is enough for them, an example is some robosexuals might be attracted to the characters from the game Detroit Become Human.
