When Vine launched earlier this year, people were shocked that porn appeared on it. Ha, how weird that the first instinct of its users was stick to a camera down their pants and see what happens! The Twitter-owned video service largely cleaned up its act (even workarounds for searching #sex like typing #s3x seem to have disappeared), Read More
The Internet is good for a lot of things, but at the top of the list are weird sex and procrastination. A new social network for randy fetishists that combines the time-wasting capabilities of Facebook and the myriad sex offerings of your favorite porn site seems like a no-brainer.
With a moniker pulled straight from the bowels of startup-naming hell, Nauti Ninja promises to serve up a social network full of people who are open-minded and kinky. “Escape the limitations of vanilla dating when your [sic] much more wildly expressive than that,” the site counsels.
Go Home Science You're Drunk
Fed up seeing your ex swooning over another woman, fresh on the heels of your breakup? One Houston woman decided to take matters into her own hands, and instead of just Facebook stalking both of them, posted the photo and address of her ex’s new girlfriend in a Craigslist ad soliciting sex.
If you have trouble lasting longer in bed than it takes for a Snapchat to disappear, a small group of scientists have found a solution for you, and it is basically spraying Chloraseptic on your penis.

Facebook has no patience for boobies–not even the feathered kind. The social media site reportedly took immediate action after the Christmas Island Tourism Board posted an ad for its annual Bird’n'Nature Week that read: “Some gorgeous shots here of some juvenile boobies.”
Of course, ornithologists and casual weekend bird-watchers alike know that “boobies”—besides being, you know, boobies—are also a type of goofy-looking bird found on islands and along coastlines, including on Christmas Island, a small Australian territory in the Indian Ocean.
Love in the Time of Algorithms
Here at Betabeat, we’ve always said the key metric for determining a good sex partner is the decibel at which they shriek during intercourse.
Now a new app called “Spreadsheets” promises to help you quantify all of the things that supposedly add up to satisfying sex–such as the number of thrusts and the pitch of your scream–to determine whether or not you’re good in the sack. (Hint: if you need an app to figure this out, you’re probably not.)
Are you so busy with work and friends and avoiding work and friends that you simply don’t have time to spontaneously display love and affection to your significant other? Of course–because the world is terrible and cruel–there is an app for that.
Sext and the City
Soldiers in war zones who are using Craigslist’s casual encounters section to hook up might want to figure out an alternative method of relieving stress.

Once upon a time in America, people were only distracted during sex by career worries and thoughts of their butts jiggling.
But nowadays, we have cell phones, which at times are much more interesting than coitus could ever be. As a consequence, one in 10 people admits to having used a mobile device during sex, Mashable reports.
It’s almost impossible to get a straight dude who plays video games horny these days. Walk by him in a short skirt that’s practically begging to be creepshotted and he’ll politely avert his gaze. Use your girl voice to talk to him on Xbox Live and he’ll compliment you on your impressive gameplay skills and immediately want to engage you in a conversation about the latest issue of Bust magazine. Luckily, developers of Wicked Paradise, an adult virtual reality game for the Oculus Rift headset, are working to solve this important problem.
