Can You Name This Story? (Part 38: The Case of the Missing Cones)

Here’s another Name That Story challenge for our readers, sent in by another reader looking for the title of a story read long ago.

Do any of you out there know the title to this story?

I read a short story about a man on a starship having a conversation with a person who turns out to be “conversation android”. It includes a great bit where the android asks “At what point do 2 intersecting cones cause arousal?”

Any ideas what and who it could be? My daughter would love it.
