If you think that the craze over 50 Shades of Grey is going to slow down just because the movie?s been shown in cinemas for several weeks, you?re wrong. Everyone, meet Whiplr — a messaging app that promises to bring your BDSM fetish to reality.

What is Whiplr?

Whiplr is a location-based messaging application that lets you discreetly channel your inner Anastasia Steele or Christian Grey by connecting you?to like-minded people with similar inclination to BDSM or other kinky fetishes.

The app allows you to fill a profile with your (safe-for-work) photo, location, height, weight, kinks, and a short bio. It also asks you to indicate your sexual preference on a slider scale in case you can?t figure out if it?s ?either? or ?or.? The messenger supports video chat, calls, couples profiles, and of course, instant messaging. You can find potential playmates by filtering people out according to role, location, kinks, experience, and more.

How is it different from Tinder?

It?s really easy to describe the app to anyone who hasn?t heard about it yet. Just tell them to imagine Tinder (yes, we?re relying on Tinder?s notorious popularity here), inject a huge dose of 50 Shades of Grey into it and you get Whiplr. With its devs describing it as “the only location-based messenger that helps you find potential play partners, online or in person,” it?s hard to tell it apart from Tinder.

However, the main difference of this new app is that it explicitly targets those who love the smell of leather, enjoy being held in neoprene cuffs, and other kinky sexual quirks. Unlike Tinder, Whiplr doesn?t restrict you in connecting with other users by location. Its website even boasts that you can find other BDSM-loving people from other countries.

How you can get it

This messaging app doesn?t record or save your conversations so you can feel free to converse with other users in any manner you like. For peace of mind, you can even delete all messages you?ve sent to other people in the app both from your device and theirs at any time.

Whiplr is free to download from Google Play and iTunes. Fair warning for all of you 50 Shades of Grey fanatics planning to get this app, there?s a very slim chance of you finding a user that looks anything like Christian Grey or Jamie Dornan so don?t keep your hopes up there, all right?
