On 18 January 20178, the Huzlers web site published an article reporting that a Chinese engineer has contracted a sexually-transmitted disease (STD) after having sexual intercourse with a sex robot prototype:
CHINA – A Chinese engineer has reportedly contracted an STD after having sexual intercourse with a sex robot prototype.
Phuck Yu Mang, pronounced “f*ck you mang”, has reportedly tested positive for HIV after he had sex with a sex robot prototype. According to reports, Phuck is a sex robot engineer for a Chinese local company, and would regularly have sex with the sex robot prototypes to ensure they will be safe for human use.
According to Phuck, he began feeling flu-like symptoms after having sex with the most recent prototype. Phuck then went to get tested and was positive for HIV. Phuck says he was certain it was the robot: “I know it was the robot because i’ve been dry lately, the last time i had sex with a real woman was 1 year ago, so it can’t be that person. I can’t believe it man, not even female robots are loyal”.
This report was false. As should be obvious from contextual clues (such as the name of the putative engineer), Huzlers is a well-known satire web site with a long history of publishing fantastic fabrications. They carry a disclaimer in their article footer stating that “Huzlers.com is the most infamous fauxtire & satire entertainment website in the world.”
