So here it is – the inevitable 50 Shades of Grey-inspired dating app for singles whose desires are …unconventional.
Called Whiplr, the location-based app lets you detail your kinks, and search for nearby “play partners”.
When you sign up, you first input your interests – whether you are just curious, or into objects, fashion, materials, sounds, or accessories.
Once you create your profile, you then filter through potential partners by their kinks, role, experience and location.
To register interest, you can initiate with a message, or send a Spark, which are little animations of cracking whips or tightening corsets.
Free Whiplr members can browse 100 profiles a day, initiate 10 chats and three calls, and swipe through 25 profiles a day.
Daniel Sevitt from Whiplr said: “Kink is a journey. Once you embark on it, you are bound to develop, explore, and learn more about yourself and what you like.
“Whiplr is the first app ever to enable users, both new to the world of kink and more experienced, to find exactly what they’re into and meet potential play partners with similar interests, lifestyles, and desires.”
For those looking for a deeper fetish filter, Whiplr has “Dekadom”, a subscription service starting at $19.95 per month.
This lets you browse 500 profiles, rather than 100, and gives you unlimited chat, voice and video calling, and a broader range of search options.
