'Down to bang?' Raunchy new Facebook app lets users search lists for willing sex partners

PALO ALTO, January 31, 2013, (LifeSiteNews) – “Words With Friends” not titillating enough for you? Tired of virtually poking people? Scared by the thought of venturing out into the real world to find a potential mate? A trio of anonymous college-age software developers are offering a “solution” in the form of a new Facebook app called “Bang With Friends.”

The app, which launched a week ago and has quickly garnered more than 30,000 users, is aimed at matching users with potential sex partners.

Users log in anonymously, and are displayed a Pinterest-like board of their Facebook friends’ faces. When users see friends they would be willing to have sex with, they click the icon labeled “Down to Bang” (the URL for this action ends with an obscene four-letter word for sex). The button then transforms into an “Awaiting Bang” signal.

Later, if any of those friends mark the user as someone they would be “down to bang,” the app notifies both parties of their mutual interest in a sexual hookup.

Early reviews of the tool have been scathing.

“Judging the site’s landing page of a scantily clad girl, who was probably tired from studying all day, it's aimed for the brosky demographic who has difficulty texting or, even more tragically, doesn't have any game,” wrote Jordan Valinsky of The Daily Dot.

The Inquisitr pointed out the app’s contact email—pimpin@bangwithfriends.com—as evidence that “This app was created by a 7th grader.”

The creators are actually not seventh graders. They are twenty-somethings from California who wish to remain anonymous, but have spoken to the media about their plans for the app.

“By being honest and forward, we’re taking the no bull---- approach,” one of them said. “It’s mostly our demographic, people in their twenties, recent college graduates and people in college.”

They claim to have matched over 1,000 pairs for recreational sex.

Click "like" if you are PRO-LIFE!

The creators came up with the idea as an alternative to online dating sites like eHarmony or Match.com.

“One night, we were shooting the s--- about how online dating is broken,” said one programmer. “What a lot of people want is just to skip all the s--- and get to the sex.”

“The crowd that we’re looking for is forward and straight about their sexuality,” one added.

That word, ‘straight,’ has been the source of much media criticism about the app – currently, it only allows pairings of the opposite sex, leaving homosexual would-be users to find casual sex partners the old fashioned way.

But the creators say that was an unintentional oversight, one they plan to fix.

“We’ll be honest with you, we made this in two hours…with a lot of Red Bull and vodka…and it took off on its own,” one of the creators said. “What we’re working on right now is building sexual preferences. I personally am completely towards gay rights. We want to give everyone this awesome access to finding people who want to bang.”

The creators are unapologetic about the crass language characteristic of the app’s interface.

“Sex is such an awkward thing to bring up in our society, and we don’t think it should be,” one developer said. “Our philosophy is that sex shouldn’t be taboo. We should be able to say ‘bang’ and ‘f---’ on our site because that’s how we talk in real life.”

The founders of the app claim it’s not just about one night stands – they see “banging” as a modern first step to courtship. “We believe relationships really evolve after you have sex with one another.”

Another added, “There aren’t many people who haven’t had sex with their loved one, and we believe that it’s crucial to have that intimate first moment to get things going.”

The creators admit that Bang With Friends is not for everyone. When The Daily Beast asked if they would let their younger siblings use the app, it seemed to freeze them in their tracks.

After an awkward silence, one finally said, “I would definitely block [my little sister] from using it.”

He then turned to the others. “We should actually create custom alerts if any of our younger siblings log on,” he said. “And then just completely shut down the site for them. Be like, ‘Sorry, we know you.’”

This is where all the bath salts people will be.

McAfee even explained the, ahem, "benefits" of ingesting bath salts rectally on an online forum where people apparently use drugs and then network with each other to discuss their experiences.

A better name for the ap would have been “FaceBook Friends With Benefits”, but the coarseness of society swirls right down to the obscene. This is a dating scheme gone sideways. I am trying to remember the last time I was at a store, restaurant, or just walking a downtown area and NOT heard the F bomb. No class, no imagination.

Well, there is the media:
“much media criticism about the app – currently, it only allows pairings of the opposite sex,”

They’re even worse.
