A companion robot and an astronaut are returning home, and the companion robot is annoyed because the astronaut won't have sex with her. They are in a ship, and the astronaut keeps talking about his wife. This was probably mid to late 90's. I just remember having to turn it off because my parents came home. I think she was blonde, and in a tight dress in the beginning, and the guy was in his uniform. It was very, "outer limits" like, in that it wasn't an on going show, but an episode from a sci-fi series.

This sounds like it might be the episode Boxed In from the 1997 TV anthology "Perversions of Science." This is described as:

Anthology series of sci-fi stories in the style of "Tales from the Crypt".

I remember the episode you are talking about as it had William Shatner in it (who also directed).

It has all the elements you mention as to a pilot, companion robot, etc.

Sex farce about a horny faithful space ace who, after several years, finally arrives home for a tryst with his fiancee. Unfortunately, her admiral dad forces them to wait until marriage, so the pilot decides to use a sexbot. Big mistake.

    Beichst, I just looked it up on youtube. You are 100% correct. You have succeeded where my dozens of hours of internet searches failed. You have completed a broken piece of my childhood. I can't explain how amazing it is going to be to finish this episode. I salute you. – Xantis12 May 23 '18 at 14:42
