Tinder experiment: Man asks 1,000 women for sex
A very direct approach to dating
It’s no secret that for many people on Tinder the dating app is largely used to "get lucky." So much so, in fact, that it's been likened to a delivery service, bringing a consensual companion to you at any time of the day.
This hugely popular perception of the app begs the question: is it necessary for Tinder users to flirt and date before taking things to the bedroom? A curious vlogger decided to find out.
People who want to have casual sex often go through a series of steps before making any big moves. They’ll chat online, go see a movie, dine at a restaurant, or get a coffee with their potential bed buddy, all in the hopes that the conversation will lead to something a bit more physical. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, and sometimes it works so well that one might wonder if all the preamble was necessary. Brian, a vlogger from the United States, wanted to find out just how many people on Tinder were willing to have sex without any prior steps.
The experiment Brian conducted was quite simple. He first racked up 1,000 matches on Tinder, then asked each one of them the exact same question: “Hey, do you want to have sex?”
His 1,000 matches went down to 935 after 65 women unmatched him. Out of the remaining 935, only 189 actually responded—non-responses are naturally counted as a "no." Out of that 189, 95 women gave him the courtesy of telling him "no," sometimes adding a "thank you."
His rejections come as no surprise, but what's more interesting are the 25 women who shared his enthusiasm and accepted the offer. A success rate of 2.5% isn’t very impressive, but it’s interesting nonetheless.
There were also 69 women who responded with something other than a "yes" or a "no," often asking questions about his pickup line or setting conditions that must happen before they have sex, like going out to dinner. One person even asked how often he got "yes" as an answer. Well, he's cleared that up.
