The Best Hookup Apps

Designed for thrill seekers, Pure offers casual encounters that are strictly no-strings-attached. The app features a time-limited chat window and photo self-destructing feature to promote privacy and spontaneity.

The sexy dating app connects millions of naughty singles of all genders and orientations looking for a quick fling. It also has a paid Majestic membership with bonus features like seeing people who liked you, filtering by desires, and incognito browsing.


GetItOn is a grown-up hookup dating site which is primarily focused on matching users which are sexually compatible. The website premiered during 2009 and it gives their standard users limited accessibility to all attributes. GetItOn also offers questionnaires about consumers’ sexual preferences and has a detailed profile program that helps them search for prospective matches.

The site also allows its members to block suspicious or abusive members. Its compatibility system takes into account a variety of factors, including age, body type, and sexual orientation. Its algorithms ensure that each match is a good fit for the user.

The interface is easy to navigate and the site features a lot of different functions. There are plenty of ways to communicate with other members, such as text messaging, video chats, and live models. Premium members can view explicit profiles and have unlimited communication. They can also pay tokens to watch private shows and access models’ diaries and nude photos.


Pure is a hookup app designed for people who want casual sex. Its profiles are temporary and only last for 60 minutes. Users can see women who are online by swiping left or right. They can also chat with a woman by clicking on the heart button in her profile. If she likes you back, the conversation will begin.

The app is free to download, but members must have a valid credit card to use it. The site encourages members to be unfiltered about their bedroom fantasies when posting ads. Many oblige by describing their kinky fantasies in great detail.

Pure has an anonymous audio chat feature, which is a useful way to save time and protect yourself from scammers. The app also offers the option of sending a private photo to your match. However, it is important to remember that hookups on Pure can lead to sexually transmitted infections. It is best to always use a condom.


Hinge was founded in 2011 by Justin McLeod, Matt O’Donnell, Frances Haugen and Bennett Richardson. The company aims to make online dating feel more like real life, by matching people with mutual friends on Facebook.

The app prioritizes creating quality matches, and claims that their algorithm will get you a second date three out of four times. Unlike other apps that focus on hookups, Hinge encourages users to find long-term partners through real conversations and connections.

During the registration process, Hinge asks users about their values and beliefs, as well as their relationship goals. It also uses your location to match you with nearby potential dates. You can choose to share more details about yourself with your matches, such as your career and education.

After each date, Hinge will follow up with a “We Met” survey to get your feedback on the date. This will help the app improve its accuracy and create better matches in the future.


After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2018, the dedicated mobile app that was previously an Instagram account called Personals went live on Nov. 7. Lex is built exclusively for queer folks who are not cis men and allows users to post ads with everything from platonic friendships to hookups to kink arrangements.

The app focuses on text-based posts that include descriptions of the person or thing a user is looking for, and the character limit forces writers to be more creative with their descriptions than they might be in a swipe-heavy environment like other dating apps. It also allows for “Missed Connections,” or the description of a person or thing that a user would like to see again, and lets users filter searches by words, username, age and distance radius.

However, some have criticized the rebrand and new features as turning its back on its original queer roots. Tech giants’ puritanical stance on sexuality and the broader pattern of businesses sanitizing, then monetizing, queer culture leave many LGBTQIA+ people wary of tech, so it’s no surprise that Lex has rubbed some the wrong way.
