If you are not a gay man, or don't have a friend who is a gay man who openly discusses his sex life, you might not have heard of Grindr, the phone app that presents fellow users in order of physical distance and allows you to chat with them, send them pictures, and eventually meet up for casual sex. (Some people say they only use Grindr to make friends. These people are liars.) I myself have it on my phone¹, probably because it feels less weird than Craigslist's casual-encounters section², and I've often shown it off to my straight friends. Every single one has the same two reactions: one, it's too bad there's no straight version of that, and two, a straight version would never work.

I have no idea if Grindr can do these things, however, because I don't pretend I have the app on my phone to facilitate Twitter updating or connect with other jai alai enthusiasts or whatever. Help me out, straight readers: do you think this can become a big hit?

²I bet it's just as serial killer-y, though.
