Just because the App Store frowns on dirty apps doesn’t mean you can’t find some great sex apps hidden in plain sight. Here are five great sex and dating apps that are either new or newly updated. Each one is tailor-made for iPhone users.


1. happn

An app called “happn” is gaining a lot of traction. You can learn about it in the video above.

Basically, when you walk past another happn user on the street, their profile pops up on your screen. This gives you the perfect icebreaker to chat with a passing hottie…and who knows where that first conversation might lead?

The Telegraph notes that, unlike a lot of other dating apps, Happn hails from France. The Telegraph notes:

“‘happn,’ the newest, hottest dating app, is so surprising. It has come not out of Silicon Valley, or London’s fast-growing equivalent (the so-called ‘Silicon Roundabout’ on Old Street) but out of Paris. Since its launch in France five months ago, happn claims to have garnered 150,000 users. And within five weeks of launching in the UK, 25,000 people have signed up.”

This formerly Francophone app is starting to pick up more and more English-speaking users, making this a great time to check it out.

Download it here.


Pros:

  • No subscription or purchase is necessary
  • Free
  • Easy to navigate
  • Great icebreaker
  • Feels fun and spontaneous

  • Cons:

  • Does use IAP
  • Somewhat small user base
  • Requires Facebook connection to log in
  • Only supports three languages
  • Distance measurements may not be precise enough for some (but it’s good for privacy)

  • 2. Lick This

    Watch a guy try the Lick This app in the hilarious video above.

    Lick This is a web app, rather than an iOS app. The app aims to train users in the fine art of oral pleasure. Users simply visit the app’s website from their mobile device, and practice their oral skills by licking the screen. The web app provides a number of “exercises” a person can try. It sounds a little gross, which is why some people suggest wrapping your phone in plastic wrap beforehand.

    Play it here.


    Pros:

  • Allegedly improves your oral skills
  • Multiple exercises
  • Easy to use
  • Great conversation starter
  • May increase confidence

  • Cons:

  • Seems weird to many people
  • Moisture + iPhone = Bad Idea
  • Some phones can harbor germs
  • May not actually improve your sexual prowess
  • Not an app you can use in public

  • 3. LinkedUp!

    Learn more about this app in the video above.

    LinkedUp! got a lot of press during its recent launch, with many press outlets referring to the app as “Tinder for professionals.”

    Now that the app has had some time to mature (and flesh out its user base), the experience is a lot more enjoyable. If you’re looking to date someone in the same industry as you, this LinkedIn spin-off is worth checking out. Just remember that old adage about dipping your “pen” in the company ink.

    Download it here.


    Pros:

  • Great dating tool for people who are career-focused
  • Gorgeous design
  • Doesn’t post anything to LinkedIn
  • Anonymously like or pass on profiles
  • Great search parameters to narrow your search

  • Cons:

  • Sleeping with co-workers/people in your industry can end badly
  • Some users think refinements could be made to the sexual preferences sorting algorithm
  • Could benefit from additional search filters for various lifestyle choices (kids, smoking, etc.)
  • Like Tinder, no way to undo “passes”
  • “Dipping your pen in the company ink” unappealing to some

  • 4. Grindr

    Check out the first episode of The Grindr Guide the video above.

    Grindr was first launched in 2009. Today, this gay hookup app has 5 million users across 192 countries. Approximately 10,000 more new users try the app every day. This app is based on your geographic location, and lets you find guys near you for casual encounters. The Grindr app for iOS got some recent updates that made the app less prone to crashing.
