Two industrial robots produce a singing female humanoid robot, who goes on to a lesbian love scene with another female robot, with assistance by the two industrial robots. Note high-Modernist design, strongly white—and liquid imagery, possibly water, or possibly an allusion to the fluid in the robots Ash and Bishop in ALIEN (film) and ALIENS (film). Cf. "The Sex Life of Robots," listed under Drama.
