If you don't want to play around on dating sites just to have sex, there are now apps that hook up people "looking for sex -- and nothing more" -- easily solving the where and who.
"We thought it would be cool to use an approach like Uber," Sidorenko says. "Where you basically create the request, and you get a car pretty soon. We thought it would be cool to have something like that to find a sex buddy."
From that brainstorm came Pure, a new app that brings the on-demand convenience of Uber or Seamless to the bedroom. On Pure, users designate their gender and the gender(s) of the people they'd like to sleep with, specify whether they are able to host or not, and are shown any other willing users in the surrounding area, each with an "Okay" or "No Way" prompt. When two users are mutually attracted, they're given each others' coordinates to meet up. There are no profiles, no lengthy chat sessions, and all unfulfilled requests vanish after an hour. Confidential user feedback keeps creeps at bay, and people who repeatedly no-show are banned.
