What we see is that conventional dating apps often fail to deliver that service to users,” Poppenreiter said.

I don’t know for sure, but I’m guessing these apps skim a percentage of any payments received by the sex worker (a la Uber and Lyft, where the app automatically deducts a percentage of the ride-share driver’s fee). And it’s hardly a leap to envision a ratings system similar to those used on restaurant apps, ride-share apps and all sorts of other apps.
Honestly, I don’t know why I’m troubled by the advent of prostitution apps.But now we have smartphone apps that let you order up sex-for-hire like sandwiches from Jimmy John’s, and somehow I can’t help but feel we’ve crossed a line.Prior to writing this blog I did a quick online search for “escort apps” and several popped up.Ohlala calls itself “the dating app designed to empower female users”–but others call it an escort service.Once you sign up for Ohlala, male users create date requests and list their budget. When a female user accepts the man’s request, a chat opens up and both parties can agree to the terms and go on a date.So how are we really affected by the fact that that prostitutes now hang out on smartphone apps instead of street corners?
