A combination of general unhappiness and security issues with the adult dating app experience are persuading more people to move offline in search of sexual encounters.
A new study, published last month in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, finds adult dating apps, in particular
swipe-based apps, have brought with them a new layer of anxiety, prompting an increasing number of users to report malaise.
To compound the situation, several mobile applications offering dating and meet-up services have security flaws, which not only leak the locations of users, but also information including their dates of birth, sexual preferences, pictures, and chat data.
In a previous article published on Sexy Asian Girls earlier this year, we reported that sex apps for casual encounters and no strings attached dating are losing customers to escorts, according to a new survey.
Oriental Girlfriend, the London based Asian escort and massage service, said the UK escort industry gained more new customers from people seeking extramarital affairs in 2017 than new sign-ups to websites such as Tinder, CasualX and IllicitEncounters, for example.
“Even the web-based dating sites such as Match.com, which apps have largely superceded, aren’t without issues,” said Oriental Girlfriend CEO Odda Ganessa.
“Membership to casual encounters and no strings attached dating websites has more than doubled in the past three years, but the market for male and female escort services has quadrupled in the same time.”
The adult social networking app Ashley Madison, whose site was hacked in 2015, resulting in the leak of sensitive data of users, is going from strength to strength, defying the odds. As things stand today, Ashley Madison has amassed around 32 million new users since the hack.
“The reality is many people are turning to so called illicit encounters on dating apps or seeing escorts on a regular basis, because there’s something missing from an intimacy standpoint that they’re unwilling to live without,” said Oriental Girlfriend CEO Odda Ganessa.
“A lot of clients say we (escorts) give them a way to keep their marriage alive. A lot of regular clients are happy with their husbands and wives in general. But they need something extra. It’s the same for men and women – more women are using escort services than ever before.
Oriental Girlfriend, which launched one of the very first Asian ‘girlfriend experiences’ 20 years ago, sas there has been unprecedented growth in the UK escort market, with more than 3,000 new clients every week.
