The title of this blog is Adventures in Date Night: Keeping It Fresh Well Into Our F-Word Years. Originally, we posted about our weekly excursions out and about in Palm Beach County. Economic factors, however, have caused us to scale back our outings, so we often have less to tell you about.
But the truth is, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have fun as a couple. Case in point, Christina Mandara, one of my sexy author friends, put me onto this new app for couples and I thought I’d share it with you.
No matter your age, sexual orientation or relationship status, iPassion has developed a new kind of app (by the same name) that will get people talking about fantasies, turn-ons, turn-offs etc.
It launched less than 9 months ago and according to the startup founder, more than 200,000 people have used the app since then.
The app is designed as a game where you play on your own phone and your partner plays on his/hers. After you’ve created you username and your partner has done the same, you can connect in the app for the game to start. Then, you’ll have to answer 2 questions about your sexual preferences and guess what your partner answered for his/her questions from his/her turn. And so it goes on, each player having their turn and finding out more and more hot facts about their partner!
And here’s the kicker – every time you guess your partners answer correctly, you’ll get 10 points and the first player to reach 100 points in a round, gets to select a hot prize like a a sexy massage, a hot night in a hotel etc.
During the game, players can chat within the app. For added privacy, the app utilizes a PIN code, meaning users can create their own PIN number which is required to open the app once it has been closed.
“The idea came from my own relationship experiences where I, despite having been with my girlfriend for more than 7 years, discovered that we could still learn a lot about each other when asked some of the questions that are in the app. And a lot of our users have stated the same,” explains J. Martin Moeller, the startup founder.
The app is currently available in 8 different languages including English, French and Spanish.
Full disclosure: I talked Mr. R into downloading the app and we gave it a whirl. While I found it fun, he was less patient with the learning curve. But give it a try and let me know what you think.
