TRANSFORMERS and Sex
Transformers Sex - Fanlore
Some will vehemently refuse to admit it exists. Others really don't care about the brand beyond it. Regardless of opinions , Transformers engaging in or pursuing interaction of a romantic nature is a well-established element in pretty much every continuity. For the most part, Transformers are observed searching for romantic partners amongst their own kind, but attraction to organic lifeforms and even non-living objects has been documented as well. Some wonder why a species that likely does not reproduce sexually would participate in behavior that in other creatures exists as a means to promote sex and thereby new life.
How Transformers are intimate is a subject of interest in Transformers fandom, though it is generally not addressed in canon due to the franchise being largely aimed at a young audience. The Transformers fandom has invented many types of intimacy for Transformers, some entirely fanon and some based on canon , but expanded. These invented acts come with invented terminology.
M ichael Bay was in Oxfordshire recently to shoot The Last Knight, the final instalment of the mighty Transformers franchise. But, in another wing of the franchise, the shape-changing robots have been venturing into much less likely territory, exploring such weighty issues as social mobility, personal identity and various corrosive ideologies — while also establishing the world of Transformers as a homonormative society. Fans of Chromedome and Rewind may be touched to learn that the two are now in a romantic relationship. The series is written by Guernsey-based James Roberts, whose background is in the civil service. But, such is the churn of the comics industry, the title was wound down in September at issue 57, the plan being to relaunch it this month as Transformers: Lost Light.
