So…There’s Now An Uber For Escorts
Uber pretty much changed our lives. Remember the old times when we used to have to stumble drunkenly out of a bar at closing time and fight other women for a cab? Yeah…it never ended well. Uber has made our entire lives easier, from picking us up during our walk of shame to letting us arrive to the club in style. Naturally, other areas of life would be more streamlined if they adopted Uber’s technique, right?
Turns out, escorts have hopped on the Uber method, with their own app. The German app, called “OhLaLa’ launched last week and is boasting the title of ‘Uber for escorts.”
The app is currently only run through web, but launching a mobile friendly version soon. If you’re not in Germany and trying to make some extra cash, the service has plans to launch in the U.K. soon and possibly the U.S. following.
So does this mean that instead of spending hours swiping on Tinder that you’ll finally make some dinero for your troubles? That depends. While traditional escort services imply S, OhLaLa makes you your own boss. Found Pia Poppenreiter explains that
“Whatever those two people want to do — may it be to give company at a dinner or end up in bed together — is a private matter and should be agreed upon in the chat before meeting. It’s simple: We match people for paid dates immediately. It actually solves problems in this marketplace, that dating sites and most escort sites don’t solve: We match expectations, on-demand.”
Poppenreiter attempted an earlier app entitled ‘Peppr’ for professional escorts and clients, but shut down the operation after negative feedback from users. Will OhLaLa solve these problems? Poppenreiter hopes that the Uber style of the service will minimize the wait time and keep both customer and date happy.
Sure, it might be sketchy, but is it really sketchier than that time you met up with that one Tinder dude “for a drink” and it ended up at a S club? Probably not. At least this way you’ll know if you’re getting a free dinner or not, am I right?
