We live in a culture that is becoming increasingly dependent on social media networks for our daily personal interactions. Browse Twitter and you hear about your buddies cup of coffee in the morning or a recent milestone in someones life. Check your Facebook wall and you find information about the news your friends enjoy reading, while browsing pictures of their kids. With all of this interaction focused online, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that an increasing number of users are finding their sex partners via social media.
From Grindr and Tinder, to Down, and 3ndr, new apps to satisfy our most basic of human desires are popping up all the time.
At Social News Daily we strongly feel that it is our job … nay … our duty, to provide our readers with everything social, and for that reason, we bring you the best social apps to satisfy your real world urges.
Down App (Formerly Bang With Friends)
I would argue that the Down App (Bang With Friends) is the social media app that really ignited the desire for more sexual encounter products. Launched in mid-2013, this sexy app allows users to choose friends on Facebook who they want to bone. If a friend also marks you for their sexual desires, the match is revealed. If your friend doesn’t choose you via the same app, your secret desire remains nothing but a hidden desire. Let’s face it, we all have friends from our past or present who we would hop in the sack with, and this app satiates those desires. Sure some horny users probably just want a convenient hookup, but this app also allows us to see if that “sexual tension” is just in our own head, or shared by a buddy. (http://downapp.com)
This is one of those apps that started with a friendly, almost wholesome business model. Find people with similar interest via Facebook and then meet up to see if you click. Users select a range of requirements, for example, the distance between the user and potential matches, and the age range they will accept. While browse you simply Swipe right if you approve of someone’s appearance or Swipe left if you’re not into them. If you disapprove of someone, they can never contact you, if you both approve then a potential match is made. While this app was not build like Down App for the sole purpose of hookups, it has become a sex interaction platform for many of its 500 million+ matches. Heck even the flame on the “Tinder” letter ‘I’ shouts “hot app for hookups.” Tinder has been given the not-so-wholesome reputation as the app hookup choice of teens. (http://www.tinder.com/)
Grindr is another product of our sex obsessed social media driven culture. The app is widely known as a place for gay, bi-sexual, and bi-curious hookups. Yet, Grindr has always billed itself as a play to meet “find a new date, buddy, or friend.” Much like Tindr, users of the service set age and proximity requirements and then browse profiles for potential matches. It is easy to see how the app could be deemed a hookup app, the products marketing features half of the men with their shirts off as they stare into the camera. (http://grindr.com/)
3nder App – A Threesome Hookup App
So what happens when a one-on-one hookup isn’t enough? A new app called 3nder is using social media and proximity matching to arrange threesomes. The app bills itself as “couples friendly” and offers the opportunity to facilitate threesomes among strangers. 3nder is currently accepting “invitation requests” but has not yet launched an open public beta version. Despite the open nature of the 2+1 and 1+1+1 hookups, the company also offers the option to “easily hide yourself from friends and family so you can browse freely.” (http://www.3nderapp.com/)
Pure – Dates Right Now (That Means Sex In Case You Were Curious)
Forget beating around the bush, Pure is an app that wants people to meet up for sex. The app has settings for “boys and girls” and “boys and boys” and allows users to stay anonymous until they find a match. Users can request more photos, and all trace of their information is deleted an hour after it is shown. It makes me think of Snapchat meets Tindr. Like the other apps listed above, there are proximity and other controls in place to ensure you can find someone in your immediate area for fun. One unique feature is facial recognition feedback. Confidential user feedback is mandatory and is used to ban those who don’t show up for arranged meetings, use misleading pictures, or violate the terms and conditions. (http://www.getpure.org)
