Pure, which has been described as 'bringing Seamless to the bedroom', offers sex on-demand by simply asking users their gender and the gender of their preference, whether they can host and then shows them potential partners who answer 'Okay' or 'No Way'.

Bang with Friends has been equally successful - however, it too focuses on chatting online rather than simply meeting for sex.
