“We believe relationships really evolve after you have sex with one another.” Another creator added, “There aren’t many people who haven’t had sex with their loved one, and we believe that it’s crucial to have that intimate first moment to get things going.”Whether they’re building relationships or simply pairing up mutually attracted couples for one night of play, the theme of their application undoubtedly revolves around sex.
And at some point, the creators had to have “The Talk” with their parents. I wouldn’t have told them unless it took off,” said one creator.
The creators of the app are a trio who, for now, would like to remain unknown to the public.
Bang With is laden with imagery targeted at the heterosexual male (for example, the “doggy style” icon cutout, and a “how it works” tab that showcases an illustration of a man rolling on a condom), but just four days into its inception, the app had already matched 1,000 couples who mutually want to bang, so perhaps there is some method to the seemingly male-oriented madness.“The crowd that we’re looking for is forward and straight about their sexuality.” And straight they are, as the app currently doesn’t take sexual orientation into consideration.
