Interested in sexual liberation at your fingertips? Well, of course there’s an app for that.  The developers behind Pure aren’t looking to the men to make their new app a hit, they’re hoping the sexually liberated women will get more use out of it. Pure is a mobile location hook-up service, much like all of the other apps currently available under the guise of “dating” apps (Grindr, Blendr & Tindr). The company’s press release says Pure is “liberating” and “about giving women freedom and choice. It’s “the application that many women have dreamed of, but never dared ask for,” it says. “For women who feel constrained by society’s stricture to be chaste and monogamous, Pure lets them break the bonds as often or occasionally as they choose.”

Oh, so it’s a feminist hook-up app? Or is it a sex-positive hook-up app? Either way, it’s a hook-up app for those want easy access to ass.

Although the app has yet to be approved in the iTunes marketplace, the creators of the app, Roman Sidorenko and Alexander Kukhtenko, said they interviewed women and discovered there was a marketplace for it. Pure  “was very positively accepted,” he said. “The idea that they could express their sexual desires how they want and without any shame and judgment — most of the girls liked the idea. There are a lot of ideas in our society about how a woman should behave sexually,” and says, “I personally realize that it’s gonna be tough mission just to get woman into it.”

Well there you have it folks, two men created an app for women to explore their sex-positive and liberating attitudes.

    Uh-huh. So these two men were so concerned about women’s liberation that they created an app….or was it the almighty dollar that really called out to them? Women need equal pay and a better image in the media (especially black women)….is there an app for that?

    The world now is getting more and more bold and comfortable with justifying and rationalising it’s nastiness, lets just call the app what it is, pure ain’t it. They should have simply named it Fornic8. I’d bet it get even more foot traffic and prove to be a running success.

    Fornic8… I like that. Isn’t there enough sex websites out there giving up the same thing.

    as if there isn’t enough casual sex happening these days. its disgusting. the health and pregnancy risk is way too high. what happened to values? what happened to morals? what happened to standards? how much do you value yourself to turn to an app for a quick hookup and open yourself up to a complete stranger in such a vulnerable and intimate way? a stranger who has been with god knows how many other people. this is complete foolishness. ppl should do better for themselves.

    Why did I look at the picture of the woman attached to the story and AUTOMATICALLY think “Soledad O’Brien looks good but why is she advertising this stuff”.

    Dangerous

    All I’m sayin is there should be a passcode that links their STD status in order for both genders to even be allowed to use the app (and all other apps of that nature).

    PS – I love Fornic8! You need to get that patented ASAP LOL

    I know I can’t speak for women, but from the outside looking in, I would be really worried about someone through a phone ap. I also don’t see where it is needed, if a woman wants sex, she get easier than getting wet in the rain. At least can see her hookup face to face instead of getting some misleading cellphone photo.

    “The company’s press release says Pure is “liberating” and “about giving women freedom and choice. It’s “the application that many women have dreamed of, but never dared ask for,” it says. “For women who feel constrained by society’s stricture to be chaste and monogamous, Pure lets them break the bonds as often or occasionally as they choose.””

    Umm, society is hardly calling for women to be “chaste” and “monogomous” anymore. Men are constantly encouraging women to be “sexually liberated” (i.e. promiscuous) because it’s to thier benefit! And women are falling for it hook, line, and sinker. This app is just most blatant example of it I’ve ever seen.
    “Go ahead women, sex with a complete stranger is just a swipe and tap away! Don’t worry about exposing yourself to pervs, creeps, and serial killers….You’re sexually liberated! You’re free from the constraints of a sexist society that just sees women as sex objects!” ……Yeah right.

    The book “Brave New World” was a warning, not a blueprint…My dog and cats are going to have more dignity and respect when it comes to sex compared to humans in a year or 2. Just WTF?

  • MimiLuvs

    Just based off of what is written here, using this app is like playing with fire. On online, a person could be anybody. A woman might use it with the notion that she is going to get the king-kong lovin’ for the night, but she might be putting herself in danger.

  • Josh

    I’m morally against this, but the business man in me says if you add a rating system for performance, commitment to using protection, creepiness, etc, then it might work. There will always be the crazy people who do things without weighting the risks. If those people rate, then the less crazy people will feel more safe.

  • Ajavee

    I agree MimiLuv’s people are really playing with danger with this new app Pure. The name says nothing of what the app really means…..

    NO! it’s not dangerous! it’s liberating. you need to stop slut shaming.

    LOL im kidding.

    Not only is this ridiculously dangerous in numerous ways, but if you truly need an app to get laid…you are hustling backwards my friend. People are setting their goodies out left right and center. I assure you, it does not take all this effort to find a bed-mate.
