If you’ve ever been side-swiping your way through the mirror selfies of shirtless bros on Tinder and thought damn, if only there was just one guy on here who was down to cut straight to the dirty instead of messing around with that flirting stuff, meet your new favorite non-dating app.
Mixxxer officially launched last week and is being pegged as the X-rated Tinder. It aims to answer a dating app conundrum so prevalent we didn’t even know it existed: on other apps it’s simply too hard to tell who’s DTF and who’ll make you buy him a three-course dinner first. “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,” developer 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.”
My counter-argument would be that Tinder allows users to decide whether they’re looking for love or *luurve* right at any given second, and that’s usually pretty simple to tell who’s doing the same. Though Mixxxer does have a few obvious benefits. The GPS limits your matches to those within a one-mile radius, and it has tighter privacy controls. The other “bonus” is that XXX-rated selfies are permitted, negating the drama of creating dick pic metaphors — we know that’s what you’re doing — with dead fish or gigantic cats.
Though Manes insists Mixxxer is different from the other adults-only spinoffs of popular social media sites like Pornostogram, the Instagramesque porn scrolling platform I visited TWO TIMES and forever comes up my Macbook every time I try to shortcut to Polyvore. “We’re trying not to be labeled as a porn app,” he says. While they’d like to offer their users the opportunity to express themselves in a way they wouldn’t be able to on a platform like Tinder, “we want to straddle the line between mainstream and adult.”
The site is currently around 65% men and 35%, which isn’t actually that male-skewed by comparison. Daily Dot reports Tinder as estimated to have 45 percent female users and 55 percent male users. It’s currently not available on the official Apple or Samsung stores, because they’re boring prudes, but you can sign up here and view it on your phone.
