Age Less / Live More

Technology is accelerating at a blistering pace with obvious innovations in the devices we have in our pockets, in our homes, and in our cars. Less visible are the changes that are happening in love, sex, and relationships that are potentially reorganizing society in subtle, and not too subtle ways. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet an anthropologist whose recent work has explored the wild and wacky world of AI boyfriends, sex dolls, and dating apps. 

Listen and learn:

  • How dating dynamics have changed dramatically in the last 25 years
  • The boring downside of an AI boyfriend
  • Why it’s impossible to define love
  • How the want and need for intimacy drives so much of human behavior
  • The risk vs reward of social media and love ideals
