Whether you’re looking for love, attention or a cheeky one night stand, we’ve got good news for you. There are a lot of apps out there that’ll fit just right, and we’re here to remind you—there’s more than enough fish in the sea to go round. A word of caution is still on the cards though, as we aren’t advocating a mass mingle in the midst of a global pandemic so meet only the must-meets. Here are the best hookup or dating apps of 2020.

For those of you who chicken out when it comes to saying hi: Happn takes you halfway there

It’s a location based app, and not in the creepy way. You set your distance range and if you cross paths with a cutie it pops up and tells you so. No more walking past that saucy bit of eye contact from across the street, if you’ve both got the app, you’re both given a second chance at hello. Meet cute much?

For those of you who want it all: It’s still Tinder

Yes, undoubtedly the most famous app and yes, Tinder is still very much around. With the largest number of users you’ll get the full array of options, ones that you’d never have a chance to meet otherwise.

For those of you are over Tinder: it’s all about Hinge, baby!

If you’re ready to jump ship, Hinge works like the word does. It links you up to your friends of friends of friends on Facebook, so if you’ve been eyeing out a pal that’s not really your pal but don’t have the guts to cold call, Hinge is the likely place to run into them!

For LGBTQ daters: Get your sweet ass on Grindr!

Grindr bills itself as the world’s largest social (lovin’) networking app for gay, bi, trans and queer people. It focuses on your profile pic, user name and the choice of your ‘tribe’ that best describes your type. What are you waiting for?

For those who want the lady to make the first move: Bumble

Get buzzing, because Bumble has reversed the roles and added a time limit to how long you take to reply, so don’t miss your chance. FYI, there is also Bumble for business and friendship.

For lady lovin: It’s called Her

Her is the dating and social network app designed with lesbian, bisexual and queer users in mind. She’s out there babe, more like many if not more.

For that friend that needs a little help: Be a Wingman

Need a little help matchmaking? Wingman brings your friends into the hot seat. They actually write your profile for you, and do the swiping too, so choose your besties. You’re only really in the loop if your match likes you back. So call your mates and go get ‘em we say.

Last but not least, for the extra open minded: We give you Feeld

Coupled up or single, the more the merrier. All are welcome here. This app encourages you to mingle across genders and beyond straight or gay, if you’re kinky and you know it raise your hand! (no nudity or explicit content on the app though, save it)

Top 10 of the sexiest movies to watch on Else Cinema right now

The sexiest movies to watch

Let’s be honest here, who has never rewatched a steamy movie scene just to feel the thrill of great on-screen chemistry once more? I know the answer is yes for a lot of you, just like I now know why I religiously watched so many of those lousy chick flicks as a teen; for the exhilarating thrill that I used to feel when the main characters would (finally) get it on. Growing up, we usually ditch the cheesy movies and end up looking for this exact same feeling in other types of movies, some more mature ones.

If, like me, you’re on a constant quest for the hottest movies out there, I’ve listed the sexiest ones to watch on Else Cinema, my new go-to streaming platform when it comes to erotica. Looking for a sensual romance? Else Cinema has got it. Are you more into passionate affairs? Don’t stress, Else Cinema is here for that too! Here’s my top 10 of the sexiest movies to watch on Else Cinema right now. You’re welcome.

The one for all your lockdown fantasies

Did you just spend a few months working from home, stuck in a chain of video calls? If so, you might have thought about the hot potential of webcams when it comes to erotic experiences—my techy-but-horny self definitely did. Well, SkypeSex, directed by the founder of Else Cinema and erotic film director, screenwriter and producer, Erika Lust herself, is the answer to all your lockdown dreams and hopes.

The one for your solo sesh

One of the best feelings (or worst if you expected someone there with you, it truly depends on the situation) is getting comfortable in your bed alone, fully knowing you’re about to enjoy a relaxing solo session, if you know what I mean. But getting in the mood for it can sometimes be tricky. Fear no more, Be a Hero is probably the hottest movie you could watch while literally enjoying yourself. Short and sweet, it’ll get you off in no time.

The one for your artsy needs

Sometimes, I feel like I’m on the hunt for something more subliminal—something that will arouse me in every sense of the term; physically, for sure, but also mentally. The Gardener depicts hot, neon-lit sweaty people having suffocatingly erotic fun in what looks like a muggy jungle. If you’ve always had a thing for succulents and cacti, then you’re in for a treat.

The one for the Tinder aftermath

As much fun as Tinder can be at first, the thrill of the dating app often fades away only to be quickly replaced by constant left swiping and unopened DMs filled with cringey one-liners. That’s usually when people know the thrill is gone and it’s time for them to go look somewhere else—anywhere Else really. Well, Tinder Taxi is the story of a woman who, after going through that same process, finds her new interest in the front seat of a taxi. Maybe that sounds cliché but trust me, it’s just pure hotness.

The one for all the nature lovers out there

Remember the first kiss that Oliver and Elio share in Call Me By Your Name? Although Oliver doesn’t let him finish, Elio sneaks in a little hand action on a grassy riverbank and the fact that this scene never went further left so many of us frustrated for days. That’s where The Outdoor Compilation comes in. From a warm summer’s day taking place in the 70s to a hike that turned into another sweaty activity, the one-hour-long compilation doesn’t miss a beat. If you’ve always had a little self-display fantasy out in the open air, The Outdoor Compilation is the one for you.

The one with a complex storyline

Ever heard of a gripping psychological thriller with steamy erotica that will keep you hooked until the very end? Me either, until now. Made of different episodes put together into one movie, Perspective follows a couple in the final days of their marriage and shows the real impact that emotion plays in relationships. Each episode delves into the complexity of a modern relationship and depicts both partners’ perspective, creating a captivating yet sexy cinematography. What more could you ask for?

The one for the dirty talk enthusiasts

Let’s mention dirty talk while we’re at it, how could we not? While it can sometimes be the sexiest thing ever, dirty talk can often scare people away, which is a shame. Want to reignite your love for dirty talk? Just watch A Talk Too Dirty, which tells the story of a trendy couple celebrating their anniversary on a romantic trip to Barcelona. One thing leading to another, they decide to spice things up by playing a little game and end up experimenting with dirty talk. Oohlala!

The one for a romantic evening

To all my lovey-dovey peeps out there, don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you. If dirty talk is not your bag, Else Cinema has a full category devoted to the lovey-dovey genre, which is basically a softer, more sensual approach to erotica. My favourite one, My Moaning Neighbor tells the story of a man trying to work from home and struggling to concentrate because his neighbour makes sure to be really loud every time she sleeps with someone.

Armed with a noisy hoover and a compilation of barking dogs, the man finally makes himself heard by his neighbour who ends up knocking on his door. You guessed it, the fight turns into a make out session and more. If your date is not getting the signals you’ve been sending them since you both got back to your place, trust me, this will do the trick.

The one for the ultra-kinky ones

Have you pretty much seen it all, tried it all? Then, The Ultimate Kink will probably be the movie that will push you to look further. In it, a female couple who have clearly tried it all realise that they’ve missed one last thing: a man. I won’t ruin the fun by revealing too much but let’s just say the guest quickly realises he’s not playing with beginners…

The one for the ‘I’m always in a rush’ types

Are you as busy as everyone seems to constantly be? Or perhaps you simply don’t have the attention span needed to watch a one-hour-long—what am I saying—a 20-minute-long movie? I feel you, and I’ve got your back. Honeydew is sexy, sweet and short. 6 minutes long, this bite-sized movie focuses on honey and its many benefits once spread on something other than a piece of toast.

Did you find one movie made for you? Even better, did you find more than one? Well, get comfy, take everything off and click here to enjoy your one-month free subscription on Else Cinema. It’s on us!
