Technology impacts our sex lives in a lot of ways, and we don't just mean porn. Better access to education and intimacy is great! But maybe too many matches on Tinder isn't so great? Also, what's the deal with sex robots? 

In this episode Dr. Kris Gowen talks about many of the ways we use technology to connect with each other, and why it's so hard to get good data on the subject.

Recorded in February 2018 at the Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland, OR. 

Also check out Kris's other book project One Nation Under Song where she chronicles her quest to sing karaoke in all 50 States.
