Would you have sex with your Facebook friends?

by Natasha Wynarczyk

New app helps you anonymously find out which of your Facebook friends are 'down for the night'. But is it a good idea?

If you lust after somebody on your Facebook list, this could be the app for you.

A staggering 20,000 people have signed up for Bang with Friends, a new app which lets people anonymously register an interest in having sex with somebody on their Facebook friends list. Or as they beautifully put it, 'anonymously find friends who are down for the night'.

If their interest remains unrequited, the other person will never know. However, if the other person has displayed an interest they both become aware of the romantic chemistry which may ensue.



The creators are Californian guys in their early 20s, and they say: 'We’re just giving you closer access to the truth. It should be something you’re expressive about, that you’re comfortable with, and if there’s a beautiful woman or a handsome man you’re interested in, you shouldn’t hold back.'

In some ways, this is a great idea; getting rid of the embarassment a badly-timed tequila-fuelled come on to an uninterested pal can cause.

But the problem is that hooking up via Facebook just feels a bit... creepy? Plus, there's that old unwritten rule that sleeping with a friend is rarely a good idea.

I'm undecided, but what do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
