From the list on Wookipedia, droids in the Star Wars universe categorized by function include Assassin droids, Interrogation droids, Astromech droids, battle droids, medical droids etc. (the list goes on).

So, are there any droids that are primarily designed for pleasure, for example, sex droids?

Looking for answers across all media.
I haven't read any comics of the SW universe, but I do welcome answers from the comics as well.

    Kind of have to, if there are only two women in the whole galaxy – Yasskier Oct 11 at 9:41
  • Does it have to be a sex bot in particular, or would a more PG-13 form of entertainment suffice? (e.g. a massage droid or a lounge singer droid) Also, are you looking just for purpose-built models or does a modification count? – Cadence Oct 11 at 9:43

In Legends, yes. Sex droids are mentioned in the novel Planet of Twilight by Barbara Hambly as part of The Callista Trilogy.

Yarbolk sniffed and jabbed one short finger at the protocol droid for emphasis. “Loronar might not do it themselves, but they’d get Getelles to do it. Who do you think put those Gopso’o on me, back on Drovis? My sources at Getelles’s court tell me Loronar is pretty much backing Getelles’s whole household. The local CEO, Dymurra, lives there like a king: sex droids, vibrobaths, plug-ins, glitterstim, four different chefs, self-conforming slippers, independently controlled environments in every room of his mansion, you name it. Some stuff that isn’t legal anywhere. He couldn’t get it without Getelles’s okay. That all adds up to …”

In the "honorable mentions" category, there's C8-42-GE3 from Knights of the Old Republic, a protocol droid belonging to one Elise Montagne. When her husband died, Elise became rather unhealthily fixated on the droid as a replacement, treating it like him in what is implied to be intimate ways (although, perhaps understandably, nobody in Revan's party is exactly eager to dig for details). Whether C8 was "functional" - and if so, how - is not elaborated on.
