A few weeks ago, the creators of Arousr got in touch with me about test driving their new app and service. Arousr is a “sexting community” for adults over the age of 21. According to their website, “Arousr is a safe place where adults can connect with other consenting adults to chat, talk, exchange pictures and engage in video call sessions over their smartphone, computer or tablet.”
How it works is that you create an account and immediately receive 100 free credits to chat with anyone on the system. Android users can access the service through the app. iPhone users can access Arousr through their tablet or desktop and by using regular text messaging.
Although I’ve been known to enjoy a good Sext, since I’m a hetero female currently in a relationship with a man, I’m not exactly the ideal customer for this service. I decided to pass the task of reviewing the app onto Joe the Intern, the resident single male at Skinny Dip headquarters. Take it away Joe…
“Hey dudes. Joe the Intern here. My girlfriend Milly and I are currently on a break ever since she started spending a lot of time at Malibu Ken’s beach cabana and changed her Facebook status to ‘it’s complicated.’ I’ve been feeling a bit lonely lately, so I was happy when Simone assigned me this mission.
First thing, first – I like that I can use this service on Simone’s iPhone. I prefer using a smartphone vs. a computer or tablet because of hand-size issues. However, I was a bit disappointed that Arousr only had an app for Android. I hope they create one for iPhone users like myself, because the app looks pretty and more fun to use than just regular texting. How about it, guys?
Anyway, regardless I found the service super easy to sign up for and use. I created a profile with my pseudonym “12inchJoe” (because I heard height is really important to women), entered the activation code and then was brought to a page on the website where I could see all of the available ladies online. I chose to chat with a girl named CeCe because in her photo it looked like she was doing Yoga without any pants on – something I sometimes like to do on Saturday mornings.
CeCe was really friendly and immediately got really excited when I told her I was 12 inches tall.
When CeCe asked me where my hands were, I told her I was touching my head.
After receiving my photo, CeCe asked me what I was doing. I was honest and told her that I was playing with one of my balls.
She asked if I wanted her to put my ball in her mouth, which I thought was a weird question. I told her, “No thank you, Ma’am. I don’t think that’s a good idea. It’s already been in a dog’s mouth at the park.”
She then started to tell me that she had just been working out (an activity that we have in common!)
When I asked Cece to tell me about herself, she started talking a lot about her cat and how it was soaking wet. I know that cats aren’t supposed to get wet, so I told her “Maybe you should stop talking to me and go dry it off.” However, she had other ideas.
When she told me she wanted me to stick my head in her cat, I thought DANGER! I told Cece, “NO THANK YOU MA’AM!” I immediately threw Simone’s iPhone off of the balcony and ran inside to call the SPCA.
In summation, I enjoyed using Arousr for the first time, however it was also a deeply confusing experience.”
Ok, so maybe Joe the Intern also wasn’t the ideal candidate to try Arousr, however I think his feedback gives you an idea of how the service works. After your first 100 credits run out (10 received text messages), Arousr becomes a pay to play service – meaning that you have to purchase credits in order to continue the chat or access additional features like video. Since people rarely talk on the phone anymore, Arousr is like a phone sex service for modern, smartphone obsessed times.
Although I wouldn’t normally promote these kinds of services, as a woman who has been the recipient of far too many unwanted dick pics and sextual harassment, I do see the utility of an app like Arousr. Yes, you pay for the service. However, when used responsibly, Arousr provides single men with a safe outlet to release this kind of energy without alienating the women in their lives.
Just a thought.
