Gay apps

Our list is not exhaustive, but contains the most popular web apps and the ones we know, use and are familiar with at MEN R US. Only you can decide which one is best for you, and some trial and error is likely needed.

Also, take the trouble to read the reviews first and bear in mind the (star) ratings are geared towards technical competence. Some guys have several accounts on the go, but then it’s more a matter of keeping track and remembering to log in to check messages.

The staples seem to be Gaydar, Grindr, and Scruff. If you're looking for older men and bears check out Daddy Hunt, GROWLr and Mr X. If you're after something rougher, raunchier, and/ or fetish orientated then check out BBRT and Recon.

This promo short from Moovz caught our eye in that it's actually quite intelligent and genuinely funny - as far as web apps ads go. And before anyone asks: MEN R US doesn't know them, nor do we have shares!

Sugar Daddy Gay Dating & Hookup App - DaddyBear

DADDY-HIVWhen DaddyBear was launched by Hong Kong Bo Xuan Technology Co., Ltd, its CEO explained in an interview with INTO “No one would like to date people living with HIV unless he is living with it. Most gay sugar daddies are not living with HIV, so they don’t want to bring home any unwanted souvenirs. However, we support that gay men living with HIV have the right to date with other gays with HIV. But many rich and successful gay sugar daddies do not want to date with gay men living with HIV, which is the reason why we launched this app to meet their needs.”

DaddyBear is not the only app on the market that asks about your HIV status; in fact, most hookup apps ask but give you the option to share this information, or not. However, DaddyBear has gone out of its way to promote its app for people are HIV negative, presumably because it believes there is a market. However, just by clicking a box marked 'positive' or 'negative' says nothing about a person's true status and this should be common sense.

And we would ask you a question: Would you rather sleep with someone who knows their status and is undetectable, or someone who clicks a box suggesting they’re “HIV-negative,” aren’t on PrEP, but was last tested a few months ago? It will be interesting to see whether there's an appetite for DaddyBear or whether people move with their feet. Time will tell. In the meantime, we suggest you try another app.
