iPhone users have a higher match rate compared to Android owners

iPhones boost match rate by 76%

Looking to improve your chances of getting a match on dating apps? You might want to consider using an iPhone. A new study by a UK-based firm found that iPhone users have a higher match rate compared to Android owners.

The latest study by CompareMyMobile dives into the relation of devices owned with chances of matching with someone. It found out that having an iPhone boost chances of matching with the “one” by almost 76%. There’s no specific iPhone model named in the study, but having the latest model surely boosts a person’s match rate.

It didn’t stop there, either. If you love your AirPods and Apple Watch dearly, you are sure to attract more people looking for the love of their life. The study guarantees 61% more chances of successful matches if one owns an Apple Watch. Meanwhile, having the latest AirPods alone boosts profile matches by 41%.

This is in stark contrast with the owners of Android smartphones. Having a Google Pixel will erode chances of matching with other profiles by 10%. Other brands have it worse: owners of Sony will have a 14% lesser successful match rate, while Huawei and OnePlus will have 23% and 30%, respectively.

And what if you still rock a Blackberry? Sorry, but you can expect more people swiping to the left. The study found that having a BlackBerry significantly decreases your chances of matching with others by a staggering 74%. So if you’re still wondering why you’re still single despite having good looks and charisma, then your BlackBerry might be to blame.

Age and location affect match rate too

There are two factors that affect these preferences: age and location. Unsurprisingly, younger people are much influenced by smartphone brands in their matching preferences.

Women are much more discerning with smartphones a person uses across all age brackets. For example, smartphones influence the preferences of women in their 20s by up to 65% while men in the same age bracket are only influenced by up to 15%.

Your location also plays a key role in determining your success.  If you have an iPhone 11, you have the best chances in London, Vancouver, and Los Angeles. And if you show off your Apple Watch on your dating profile while you’re in San Francisco or Manchester, you will attract more views and swipes to the right.

The only odd-one-out is New York. Here, the most swipes to right goes to the person who shows off their AirPods.

Some might have reservations on the whole study, but this was done using legitimate methodologies. The whole study is done by setting up fake profiles. Each fake profile displays the device supposedly owned by the person. Granted though, the study only looks at data from 15 major cities and more than 50,000 swipes.

So, don’t be discouraged if you don’ have an iPhone to boost your successful match. After all, there’s a lot that you can do to improve your chances on dating apps.

The sex toy every sophisticated woman should own

Womanizer Premium 2 is such a luxurious stimulator!

Published

on

The following is intended for readers 18+

If you’ve been in the sex toy world for a while, you’ve probably heard about the revolutionary Womanizer.

This face massager-looking device is now considered a cult fave, and lots of women are raving about it. Others are even claiming it made them reach the big-O in just two minutes. Intriguing, right?

So what exactly is the hype about?

Womanizer is the first-ever toy to introduce the Pleasure Air ™ technology. Unlike normal vibrators, the Womanizer aims to give pleasure without having direct contact with the skin. In this case, the clitoris.

The Womanizer uses air pressure to “massage” the clit, so it’s gentle yet very effective. This technology is wildly popular that there are lots of knockoffs in the market, which is why it is patented.

If you scroll through Womanizer’s catalogue, there are plenty of options depending on your budget. I was both excited and intrigued when looking at the choices. There’s just a lot to consider.

When I finally got to try the Womanizer Premium 2, their newest luxury clit stimulator, all I can say is this: I am now a believer. This beauty is worth the internet’s hysterical worship!

C marks the spot

Here’s a hot take for men: the reason why your girl is probably not enjoying it, is you go straight to penetration without taking much time in the clit. I can’t stress this enough: the C-Spot is just as important as the G-Spot.

Stimulating the clitoris alone can lead to multiple orgasms without the need for penetration. And the Womanizer Premium 2 proved this for me numerous times — sometimes even in just one sesh!

It’s like oral sex, but better

Thanks to Womanizer Premium’s 12 intensity levels, I have the option to go slow and gentle, and then switch to powerful and intense mode. The control buttons are easy to navigate, I can feel all the sensations without having to move much.

The product also features an AutoPilot ™ mode where I just sit back and enjoy the different stimulations and intensity levels. Yes, you can let this thing take the lead! I use this feature whenever I’m feeling adventurous, or when I’m extra lazy to control the buttons.

Safe, healthy, and without hassle

The Womanizer Premium 2, like any product in the Womanizer catalogue, is made of hypoallergenic silicone. It feels smooth and velvety, and the quality is true to its name.

I appreciate that the design is subtle yet straightforward. It is not intimidating at first glance; unlike some sex toys I’ve seen in the past.

The no-touch orgasm is a life-changing innovation, the product doesn’t rub on the skin to achieve pleasure. Suffice to say that it promotes safe and healthy stimulation without being harsh down there.

It is waterproof, so cleaning is not a hassle. You can even use it in the shower.

The package also comes with an extra stimulation head on a different size, to which I learned that the medium one is a better fit for me.

Making me-time much sexier 

I strongly believe that self-pleasure is a form of self-love. Gifting yourself the Womanizer is actually like treating yourself to a luxurious spa at a 5-star hotel. Pair it with your favorite bed sheet and room scent for a full cozy experience.

If you don’t live alone, the Smart Silence technology is your best friend. Although it’s not silent enough for super quiet spaces. Better turn on your aircon or e-fan while doing the deed to ensure subtle background noise.

Aside from the various intensity levels, you can also explore different positions using the Womanizer. Tip: there are a lot of ideas on the Womanizer Instagram page!

For those with partners, this thing can also spice things up in the bedroom. Just let your partner control the buttons and you’re all set.

Is this your PlayMatch?

I guess the biggest downside of the Womanizer Premium 2, at least for me, is the price. There are other cheaper alternatives in the market, although I can say it’s worth the investment. If I only have the luxury to gift this to all my girl friends, I would. It’s an experience that deserves to be shared.

If you’re planning on investing in your sexual wellness, Womanizer Premium 2 should be on top of your list. It is currently on Valentine’s Day sale, from US$ 199.00 to US$ 189.05.

There are plenty of options on the Womanizer website, in case you’re still expanding your options.  You can also check out the We-Vibe Melt, a cheaper alternative that is quite similar in terms of target pleasure.

Shop the Womanizer Premium 2 on Womanizer’s website or through local shop Lauvette.

Tinder is getting a Blind Date feature

Find a date before Valentine’s Day

Published

on

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you don’t have a date yet, you can still turn to dating apps to find a special someone before Monday’s festivities. Right on time, Tinder introduced a new Blind Date feature to complement its growing slate of capabilities for would-be daters.

In today’s digital world, it’s almost impossible to go on a truly blind date. After a quick Google, you’ll know practically everything about a new date even before you meet them. However, dating apps are doing their best to maintain a sense of anonymity before new matches voluntarily share that information themselves. Traditionally, profiles only share someone’s first name, age, a short bio, and a few photos.

Tinder wants to change this even further with the new Blind Date feature. Instead of the usual swiping way to match up, users who opt into the feature will be paired with others based on common interests.

However, automatic matches won’t see each other’s photos yet. Instead, they’ll play short games and answer quirky prompts like “I put ketchup on _____.” If both parties like the other’s answers, they’ll get matched and finally see each other’s photos. If not, the feature will try again with another pairing.

The new feature is under Tinder’s Explore tab. Users in the United States already have the feature available. Meanwhile, global users will get Blind Dates “in the coming weeks.”
