New X-Rated Hookup App Is Basically Naked Tinder

"Adults only, Clothing optional."
Shower door, ehh?

Shower door, ehh?

When you’re on Tinder just looking to score a one night stand, sorting through all the saps in search of true love (or at least a first date) can be a royal pain. How is anyone supposed to get straight to it when everyone’s being ambiguous, trying to chat and whatnot?

Tinder’s X-rated brother, the adult-oriented hookup app Mixxxer, launched last week to help combat this problem and help users find nearby hookups without the hassle.

“People don’t know when they’re using Tinder if you’re using it to hook up or if you’re using it to find a date,” the app’s maker, Michael Manes, told The Daily Dot. “Our idea was to create something with a much clearer purpose, where you’re looking for one thing and one thing only.”

Like Tinder, the app uses your GPS location to offer you matches. Besides the fact that everyone is DTF, the major difference is that Mixxxer doesn’t sync with your Facebook profile, allowing you to upload any photos. We’re obviously talking about the sans clothing kind.

There’s also a valuable feature for those who want to post nudes but aren’t willing to put it all out there — the shower door, which enables you to sorta-kinda blur out your face or body.

If you’re somehow still questioning the purpose of this app, check out its site. It’s littered with elegant one-liners that put it quite simply: “this is not a dating app”: “join for free and get laid tonight!”; and “find horny locals wherever you are at any time.”

Although the app is littered with X-rated content, Mr. Manes told The Daily Dot he doesn’t want it to get labeled as a porn app. Inevitably though, the app being touted as “X-rated Tinder” has been banned from both the Apple and Google app stores. It currently isn’t available for download and can only be accessed as a mobile web app.

Another app, another XXX day in #tech.
