    ‘Bang With Friends’ hits the market as a sexual alternative to Tinder

    For those meandering the Craigslist “want” advertisements during those lonesome midnight hours and weeding through promising posts for other needy bodies, social media now introduces a more direct approach to solve the formalities of online booty calls. It’s called Bang with Friends, and it can be downloaded to your phone today.

    The app, which connects users to their Facebook friends list, is the newest edition in anonymous hooking up. If Facebook isn’t already the most subtle form of informing someone you’re down to hit the sheets, you can take your poke war to the next level with a quick download for, excuse the irony, a quickie.

    By joining Bang with Friends, the app allows a user to compile a personalized list of choice hook up potentials. The list has cleverly been dubbed the “Friends with Benefits List”. From here, what could have taken hours of drinking and brazen courage is eliminated in a feat of technology.

    If two members have mutually added each other to their preferential lists, the site will alert the two curious persons and will provide further direction on how to proceed. The directions are supposedly rather explicit, so even the less experienced can participate confidently.

    The app is designed to be a discreet means to joining two likewise “bangable” bodies for a union of sorts; however, the app is less covert than it is intended to be. Any person who creates an account on Bang with Friends will be viewed by fellow friends with similar accounts. This means friends can easily see who is poking around.

    Theoretically this app is prime for persons interested in casual sexual encounters, although the ramifications can only be imagined in a digital sphere where nothing is truly deleted. Social media has provided this generation with the tools to forego proper introduction in friendship and dating circles and this app proves only an additional weapon in an arsenal of nameless hooking up.

    So, for those looking for an easy, casual hook up but don’t quite know how, buck up the courage to bang your digital friends on a digital site.
