New App Allows You To Fake One-Night Stand With Facebook ‘Friend’
So there are probably several people on your Facebook list with whom you’d love to have a romp in bed. That’s just the fact of the matter. There’s almost always someone who revs our engines in the right way but we know we can never have. Unless, of course, you’re married. If you’re married, you’re not allowed to lust after anyone but your spouse. Especially since this new application makes your lusting incredibly obvious, and I promise you your significant other will catch you, and that will mean the couch for several weeks, and that just sucks.
Now that we have that downer out of the way, single men and women, you can now sleep with that hot thing that’s friended you on Facebook! Sort of, at least. Whether it’s a roommate, coworker, or just some random person you met online, the App named App Night Stand is being called “an alarm clock with a twist”.
So here’s the twist. You and a Facebook friend—or someone in your area, in case all of your Facebook friends are too busy to care about your lonely adventures—wake up at the same time with this app if you both accept the invite. When you wake up and take a look at the screen, there’s a little digital bed with both of your Facebook profile picture in the bed… kind of like you are waking up together after a long night of dominatrix games, only there’s a lot less swelling and bruising on your face since it’s just your Facebook default pic.
I guess the app creators are saying that this is a virtual one-night stand without the one-night stand part and none of the commitment. And none of the sex, for that matter. If you choose to wake up “next” to a stranger instead of a Facebook friend, you can talk to that single person you “woke up” beside, at least. Or you can just move on with your life like most normal people would.
App Night Stand, like many apps and Web sites these days, makes you sign in to its app with Facebook. Then you just set the preferred sex of your alarm buddy, and you can select from a list of Facebook singles (and your friends, of course) to get jiggy with. There are four alarms from which to choose, one aptly named the “Sexy Siren.” I’m not even sure how a siren can be sexy. I hear the word “siren” and what I really hear is “fire truck outside my house because my toaster caught on fire.” I guess it gets you out of bed, though.
Anyway, once you’ve taken an ample amount of time to stare at the tiny Facebook default picture that is your hookup to see if he or she is worthy of your time, the chat opens up and you can either ditch the person as fast as possible (anonymously) or you can stick around and chat. You can even exchange personal info if you feel like taking it to the next level, or…not.
This app isn’t free for life, though. Your first 30 invitations are no-strings-attached, but after that, you gotta commit to an invitation buying plan. You can buy 50 for a buck or as many as a MILLION for $13.
Honestly, I think this app may provide a person or two with a good time (and maybe a good story to tell their kids later), but mostly, I think it’s one more way for people way outta your league to reject you. “Cool! I can buy FIFTY additional one-night stands and have them exit before I can tell them I love pie and Star Wars,” no one said, ever.
If you’re feeling bored out of your mind, maybe you should go check it out. Or maybe it’d be more entertaining to stab yourself with toothpicks. Kinda depends on the kind of person you are.
