When it comes to dating, I’ve always found that the more advice I get, the better. Mashable has heard my cries (along with many others) and has released Love in the Time of Robots, a new web series that gives sex, dating, and relationship tips with a specific focus on the Internet.
The show’s trailer gives us a good idea of what to expect; Love in the Time of Robots will focus on digital age topics such as online dating, Internet pornography, and sexting, with several “man on the street” style interviews supplementing a talk show format that will be broadcast live on Ustream (with more material on the show’s LoveBotTV YouTube channel). The first episode was recently released, with hosts Emily Gordon and Gabe Delahaye sitting down with noted porn star Asa Akira.
Users can ask questions that will be answered on the show by tweeting at Love in the Time of Robtgots‘ Twitter account (@LoveBot). One lucky viewer also won a vibrator as part of the first episode, so expect plenty of saucy giveaways. Each episode has a theme, with the first one being the idea of “cyber-celibacy”, which involves separating the Internet from real life. Future episodes hope to establish ‘rules’ for online dating and break down the way it relates to social media and video consumption.
If you’re confused by these online dating rules, or if you need some sexting advice, then Love in the Time of Robots should be able to answer all of your questions.
