Links We Love: Hot Sex With Robots, How to Find Love in an Asylum, Why Masturbation is Awesome & More

From what sex will be like in 2050 to dating tips from the 1930s, don't miss these surprising and awesome love and sex reads from around the web.

Have a Love Affair – With Yourself!
Ugh. We've heard all of the excuses before: "It feels better without one!" and "It's too small" (um, not really) -- but as Your Tango notes, there's never an excuse not to wear a condom (unless it's a long-term, monogamous relationship, of course). If you new beau just won't compromise, kick him to the curb, and get busy with yourself. Your Tango also gives four reasons while masturbation isn't just good for you, it's sexy. (And doesn't require protection.)

Dating Tips From the Past…
Now, now, gals -- don't block your date's rearview mirror. And sit like a lady, and never drink more than one beverage! Whew, we're so glad dating has evolved (at least a little bit) since the 1930s. Check out HowAboutWe’s hilarious tips on to be a great companion from 1938. After you finish rolling your eyes, master the art of snagging someone’s attention today in the first five seconds of meeting them.

…And Sex in the Future
While we know the job market's tough, prostitution may be a dying profession too -- according to new research from the University of Wellington. While there are already sex robots available (at $8,000 a pop), by 2050 men (and women!) will seek satisfaction from cheaper, robotic alternatives. The Huffington Post reports. (For other crazy sex fetishes, check this out).

Oh, Vagina
For having such a disposable income, we're always surprised when celebrities can't find pants that fit! From Mariah Carey and Paris Hilton to Megan Fox, see if you can guess the celebrity with a bad case of camel toe on The Frisky. And for another thing you shouldn't do to your vagina, check out the world's worst pair of panties on The Luxury Spot.

The One Place You Probably Won't Find Love
Sure, there are some unlikely places to find the love of your life, like at a bar at 3 a.m. (though you may think you did!) or at the supermarket even though every rom-com promises you may, but there are also places you really shouldn't find a partner. You know, like a mental institution. Maybe not, though, according to this real life love story from an asylum on The Nerve.
