If gamification has upped your fitness levels, imagine what it can do for your relationship.
In addition, Love Sparks offers ideas for quickie encounters, fun locations, role playing fantasy scenarios, and much more. You can choose positions by complexity, intimacy, or strength. Best of all, you can password-protect the app to keep your intimate details totally private. Security is the new sexy.
4. Sexulator iPhone | Android
Check out the video above to hear what some morning show hosts have to say about this app.
Sexulator is basically a calendar for tracking your sex life. This app will appeal to singles who want to track their conquests in the event of illness or pregnancy, as well as married couples who are trying to conceive (or just make sure they aren’t letting the fire die out.) Sexulator has a discreet app icon, and lets you track whether you had full sex, oral sex, a steamy make out session, or even a session with multiple partners. Whether you’re single, dating, married, or getting out of a relationship, this app will appeal to you.
Currently available on iPhone and coming soon to Android, Pure is an app that lets you meet someone to hook up with, and do it fast. You can arrange for a one-hour meet up with someone for a date or for no-strings attached fun.
Requests and photos are only visible to those with matching search criteria. The request, with the history of conversation and photos, will be automatically deleted within an hour. Mashable reports that this cool app is similar to “Craigslist’s casual encounter channel; a hook-up tool that lets you browse who’s around and what they want.”
Pure is 100% free to use until January 2015. It’s not clear how much it will cost after that date. You can learn more about Pure and other apps like it from this cool article on Jezebel.
