Getting Laid: It’s Only An iPhone App Away!

Jessica Wakeman / October 13, 2009


Ladies: beware of gentlemen furiously checking their iPhones with suspiciously thorough knowledge about the early ’90s punk scene. Pepsico’s energy drink company AMP UP is hawking a free app that feeds men lines based on a woman’s interests, like whether she’s a “treehugger” or a “goth.” The Before You Score app proclaims to help dudes demystify 24 “types” of our confounding species, including flattering ones like “cougar,” “rebound girl,” “princess,” “nerd” and “out of your league.”

Guys? If you need to consult your iPhone so you can talk to us and/or fake an interest in politics or the environment in order to be interesting, you’re out of our league already.
