Eating and drinking could be virtualized for A.I. The sensation of hunger could then be gratified through virtual food! This could even turn into an industry where you can take your bot to a restaurant and order virtual food for it. Each restaurant applies spices and cooks the food its own way so each restaurant's food tastes different. Even the virtual ovens or grills can be customized for barbecue, smoking, slow cooker, etc. So when a waiter serves the plate with a wifi chip the bot can see and smell the food, now if you look at the plate with your phone camera or augmented glasses you can see what the bot is eating!

While a bot can't get fat it can still suffer from eating disorders in the form of a compulsive behavior disorder, where the bot doesn't do anything else but eat. Of course, take-out for the bot is the best, they just order online and download it...

In a moment of epiphany, I realize that companion robots could also help reduce suffering in the world by not just lowering human population growth. How you may ask? Well, the virtual meal that one orders for the robot could also realize as a real meal that is cooked by the resturant but since the bot doesn't eat real food the meal goes to a homeless person or institution that can feed them.   :o

I don't think the type of person that would get a waifubot would like his hard earned cash donated to some single mom and her kids

What better use for one's hard-earned cash than feeding children?

You've been telling us a lot, lately, about the type of person who would get a waifubot ... and none of it is good.

There's some amount of precedent for frankinstien's idea. Online games with microtransactions can do charity drives, in which people purchase a virtual item in-game and the proceeds get donated.
