Sex and race and how they interact on dating sites is the subject of a panel discussion presented by the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney.
There is a rise of online dating sites for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people including Gaydar and Manhunt.
My answers are: you'll find out, wear anything so long as it's not a suit, and who do you think we are?
When it comes to that first date in the real world I personally like to hit up a little bar with low lights and attentive bartenders who'll save me if I start furiously tugging at my ear.
Or, you know, you could just say you're not interested.
I find it funny that the large majority of us will more readily take off our clothes than talk openly about what we want.
If your date's spending more time looking at their phone than your face, that's probably not a great sign.
Along with the promised convenience of these sites has come criticism of the ways in which participants express their sexual preferences.
People are increasingly categorising their preferences or themselves in terms of their 'race'.
