Facebook app lets you skip the preamble and get down to business quick smart.
Ever wondered if you stand a chance of getting into the pants of any of your Facebook friends but never had the balls to ask? If so, you may want to check out Bang With Friends, a recently launched Facebook app that allows you to find out whether or not any of your Facebook chums are up for a bit of hard-core romance.
With Valentine’s Day looming large, many will no doubt be plotting their last-ditch attempts at avoiding yet another night alone in bed with a few choice websites lined up and an almost threadbare toilet roll/sock at the ready. If you belong to this category of feckless singletons, then Bang With Friends could be right up your street.
The Bang With Friends app works by simply allowing users to select Facebook friends whom they’d like to ‘bang’. If the interest is reciprocated, both parties will receive an email notification alerting them to the fact that a shag is now officially on the cards. And, in keeping with the app’s classy tone, the Bang With Friends website offers a step by step guide as to how the service operates, complete with metaphorical diagrams of a condom sheathing an erect cock.
However, before the straight males among you get too carried away, psychology professionals predict that Bang With Friends is far more likely to be popular with men than with women.
According to independent Florida student newspaper Alligator, UF psychology professor Laurie Mintz said that research indicates male pleasure is prioritised in ‘hook-ups’ involving sex. “Research finds that women are less likely to have orgasms and report being satisfied in hookup sex than are men,” she said.
Meanwhile, Kristen Croft, an 18-year-old UF industrial and systems engineering freshman, doesn’t expect to see a lot of women using the app, including herself. “I honestly think that’s kind of grimy in general,” she said. “I would like to think no one would put themselves out there like that. It’s very controversial.”
So, while it’s unlikely that this method of pestering will garner much success for those in need of some heavy petting, at least you’ll be able to face the humiliation of rejection in private. Alone.
