This isn't that complicated. Right now robots are not sentient, so consent isn't a thing. If at some point they are, they will pass the Turing Test and so consent will work just like with real people.

The first and most important rule for sex robots:

The robot must NEVER laugh under any circumstances.

What's the point of a sex bot that would say no?

AI might be equal or even superior to human intelligence one day, but a sex bot would be in to sex at a layer of coding more fundamental than the intelligence.

Otherwise you're just dealing with an android. That's no sex bot.

I think the ethical problem isn't consent of the robot, but consent from the human.  Robots are apparently blabber mouths that will upload your performance and kinks to the company database.

The Turing Test isn't as good an indicator of sentience as once thought.  As far back as 1966, the ELIZA program was able to pass the Turing Test, and it responded to most input by rephrasing it as a question, in the style of a Rogerian psychotherapist.  It had only the most rudimentary understanding of English grammar, and no way to interpret the meaning of a sentence.

/do you say you rephrase user input as a question for some special reason?

Once they know our sexual weaknesses, they will exploit them against us.
We know what a guy will do to get a piece of ass, soon the robots will too.
This is how they will enslave us.

And this is why we will never advance robots to the point that they look and move like humans. Especially not sexbots. There are a large percentage of people are completely unable to get past the emotional instinct. Even though that thing doesn't look remotely alive, when the original video was released people were complaining that kicking the robot dog was cruel and you don't have to right to abuse it just because you created it. Make something that actually looks like an animal or person and even more people will be convinced it is alive and has rights.

Considering that we have politicians who think that islands can tip over if you get too much weight on one side it's pretty much guaranteed that any robot which can be mistaken for the real thing will either be outlawed or given rights.  Japan will of course create those kinds of robots but the US will definitely outlaw them.

Just cut a hole and jam a Fleshlight into one of those oversized teddy bears they sell at Costco and get over things. There's no ethics involved, just a matter of cleaning and figuring out how to dispose of a jizz and lube soaked novelty bear once or twice a year.

There's a fetish for everybody.

There are a lot of people out there who would pay extra for one that could say no & cry while resisting weakly.

Except for the part where they said to clean it "once or twice a year".

What if you use it multiple times a day? Ewwwww

Their plan is flawed.. Unless they like the insides of their sex toys encrusted with months worth of old jizz...

Or you could clean the fleshlight, which would be the main receptacle. Getting rid of the bear is probably just for the splattering (which can still be a lot, but theoretically the cum goes into the fleshlight) as you can't wash it due to the hole that was cut.

Locations are never said.  It's a series of vignettes, each about a specific topic on sex, so location never really factors into it.  Not sure why Tyler TX comes up in a search.  The picture above of the giant bra is also from the same movie I believe.  Really funny & worth watching.

Alternatively, one could probably use a waterproof washable mattress/pillowcase cover to make a sub-fur layer. Sturdy stuffing, canvas shell with velcro on it, then cover the whole thing with a machine washable fur/sherpa. A fella that knows how to work a sewing machine could probably make a pile of cash on etsy that way...
