The Hookup App: Does 'Bang With Friends' Deserve A Shot?

The Hookup App: Does 'Bang With Friends' Deserve A Shot?
Sex

We talk to the guys behind the app that's fighting for your Facebook hookups.

"We're all for getting drunk with your friends and putting the moves on them if you can, but for us it's about having the ability to break the ice in a safe manner so that you don't compromise that friendship," Hodge explains. "It also allows women to make the first move instead of waiting until both parties are drunk and hoping the guy makes the move."

Perhaps there is something to be said for not ruining friendships that could be forever awkward after a misguided attempt to get laid. But with the help of an app, the mystique, the intrigue, the flirtatious cat and mouse game is completely gone. Instead having sex feels like a business transaction.

But the founders think anonymously telling your friends you want them can even lead you to happily ever after. "I've heard from couples forming committed relationships and being very happy because who makes a better mate than somebody you're already friends with?" Hodge says.

Maybe so. As for me? I'll stick to my retro ways of getting drunk at the bar with the object of my affection over the contrived entanglements of a Facebook or mobile app. If you can't tell me to my face you want to have hook up, then we probably shouldn't be hooking up at all.
