Asking For A Mate - Season 2

The Line talks about what's ok and what's not when it comes to sex, dating and relationships.

Real people getting real about sex, dating and relationships.

Want to know the answer to awkward questions about sex, consent, porn, dating, masculinity, gender and other stuff? We’ve got you.

Here’s what the people we asked had to say…

A male with dark-brown skin stands in front of a white background. He has black hair and stubble on his chin and top lip. He is wearing a grey hoodie and standing with his hands at a 90 degree angle in front of him and is about to talk. In the foreground, text reading "how do you make consent sexy?" is digitally imposed.

"My first time having sex was a flop. It was my flop era.”

Before you think it, no, not that kind of flop… Anyway.

Wait until you hear the answer about how somebody fell out of a window during sex.

You thought that was wild? We asked these questions (and some others) about porn.

A male with white skin stands in front of a white background. He has brown hair and stubble on his chin and top lip. He is wearing a black Metallica cap, is wearing two earrings, and is in the process of talking. In the foreground, text reading "What has porn taught you about sex?" is digitally imposed.

"I dunno what you do in your spare time on your laptop, but this is real life."

How would you describe porn to somebody who has never seen it before?

How would somebody even answer that? Well, you can find out by watching all the episodes.

Got some questions about dating, too? Alright, here you go.

Two women with brown skin stand in front of a white background. On the left, a woman with long black hair in braids gives two thumbs up in the direction of the woman on the right. The woman on the right, who has short black hair in tight braids, looks up towards the right hand corner of the image. In the foreground, text reading "ever been ghosted or the ghoster?" is digitally imposed.

“Green flag? Communication. Period.”

You should hear the answer about dog vs. cat people, and ghosting.

While you're here, here's some about gender stereotypes as well.

Two young men, one with olive skin and one with white skin, stand in front of a white background. On the left, the man, who has short dark-brown hair and a face full of stubble looks towards the man on the right. The man on the right, a medium-length brown mullet with the end dyed blonde, looks down towards a white card he is reading off of. In the foreground, text reading "what are some of the societal expectations and pressures on men?" is digitally imposed.

"You don't have to be tough and cool... just be yourself."

What pressures does society place on men? Women? And people who don’t identify with the gender binary? Some tough questions. Have a listen to some answers.

You've made it this far, why not watch some episodes about masculinity while you're here?

Two young men, both with white skin, stand in front of a white background. On the left, the man, who has short blonde hair and a short moustache looks towards a white card the man on the right is holding. The man on the right, with medium-length brown hair covered by a baseball cap, looks back towards the other man while while holding the white card. In the foreground, text reading "what does the idea of a toxic bro culture man to you?" is digitally imposed.

“If you’re a guy and you aren’t always wanting sex, there’s nothing wrong with that.”

That answer, and a bunch of others to a heap of curly questions about masculinity, can be watched in full as part of Season 2.
