Review of "Coin Op" by David Steffen

"Coin Op" by David Steffen appeared in Daily Science Fiction on February 21, 2013.  "A woman purchases the sexual favors of a phenotypically human android one small payment at a time."  The editors warn of adult themes--they understate.  This is a pornographic piece.

The business-like, complete lack of emotional response from the android was amusing, as were its sexual extortion tactics.  A snide comment at the end of story detracted a bit; there was a missed opportunity to make this a moral tale with a chilling (ahem) climax. 3 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
