Love Life: The New Zikoko Series That’ll Have You Asking, “God When?”

October 28, 2020

Ope Adedeji and I came up with the idea for Sex Life almost a year ago, and it quickly became one of Zikoko’s most successful flagship series. So, we decided to see if we could make magic happen again, and that’s how we decided on Love Life

What is Love Life?

If it’s not already painfully obvious from the name — we are lazy, sue us — Love Life will focus on the highs and lows of romantic relationships, ranging from decade-long marriages to complicated entanglements.

We can’t take all the credit for this series though. Every time we’ve conducted a survey around the interests of you guys, our wonderful audience, a relationship series has been one of your biggest asks. After a lot of internal debates, you’re finally getting it.

What will the series look like?

While the average Sex Life story follows a subject’s sexual journey from as early as childhood, Love Life stories will pick up from the moment the couple in question first met each other. It will also be the first Zikoko flagship series to interview two (or maybe more) people at once.

That being said, the series will have one major thing in common with Sex Life: Inclusivity. We will be talking to queer couples, couples in open marriages, polyamorous partners and more. Every kind of relationship will be explored. 

There will also be audio recordings of each Love Life story at the top of the article, with voice actors reading the parts of the couple we interview. It’s our first time doing something like this, and we couldn’t think of a better series to try out this format with.

When should you expect Love Life stories?

Starting tomorrow, the 29th of October, 2020, a new Love Life story will be available every Thursday by 9 AM.
