let's talk about sex

New York Magazine’s ‘Sex Lives’ Podcast: Does Your First Boyfriend Still Fantasize About You?

This week on “Sex Lives,” Maureen offers what she swears is the absolute last and final word on dating apps (her mantra: The tech doesn’t matter, just the people do).

Next up, a new study suggests that everybody really does have a “type” (Allison’s is Seth Rogen), and that the type is the result of those early relationships that imprinted themselves on us as permanent preferences. The research confirms two things we knew in our hearts to be true: Everybody we date kind of looks the same, and somewhere, our junior-high boyfriend is probably still obsessing over us.

To round out the episode, we applaud a recent spate of super-hot interracial lesbian sex on network TV and discuss why you should join hosts Allison P. Davis, Maureen O’Connor, and David Wallace-Wells as they dim the lights, pour some wine, and check out last week’s episodes of Empire and How to Get Away With Murder. (You’re welcome.)

A new episode of “Sex Lives” can be found each Wednesday on iTunes or SoundCloud.
