For some, directional pillow talk with a new partner is a walk in the park. For others it’s about as sexually exciting as getting a pap smear or peeing into a cup for medical purposes.
Not like that.
A little to the left.
That’s good, keep going.
Ouch, you’re hurting me.
Have you done this before?
What do you say? How do you say it? What if they’re not into it? What if you’re not into what they’re into? How do you get out of there with your clitoris and dignity still in tact? THERE ARE SO MANY BLOODY VARIABLES.
Enter PlsPlsMe, an app created by New York advertising executive, GraceAnn Bennett that’s here to help the non-communicators out and take the awkward out of telling someone what you really want sexually.
“A lot of tough conversations happen through technology,” says Bennett. “If you have to look someone in the eyes, it’s just… I think it’s scarier; there’s nowhere to hide.”
But through PlsPlsMe, things are made simpler, less scary, and kind of fun.
The app requires both sexual partners to sign up and then individually asks a series of questions such as How important is cuddling?, Do you like to be blindfolded?, etc.
Answer options include Love It, Like It, Not So Much, and No Way.
Participants also have the option of asking direct questions to partners.
Bennett says that PlsPlsMe, which is named after The Beatles’ song, came following the breakdown of her 19-year marriage, much of which she attributes to a failed sex life.
