Threesomes: there is an app for that!

Feeld allows couples and singles to find a threesome. An app that promises to fill its users and make its creator very rich …

Grindr, Tinder, Hornet … It’s been a long time now that smartphones allow their users to flirt or kiss. But so far, there was no app dedicated to “triolism”, understand: the three-sided ass. Fortunately Feeld has arrived!

The principle is simple: download Feeld application from the App Store, log in via your Facebook account and fill in your profile as a couple or single, indicate your gender and your sexual preferences and go. You can now like the profiles of other users. If you “match” with one of them, a dialogue window opens. Congratulations: you have a chance to win a threesome!

Feeld is the “baby” of Dimo ​​Trifonov, a 24-year-old Bulgarian living in London for 4 years. His application to make life easier for three-sex lovers could soon make him a millionaire: “In theory I am already,” says the young man, “my company is estimated at 4 million pounds (about 5.1 million €) “.

A huge taboo

An idea in solid gold so, yet born of a simple conversation between this young web designer and his girlfriend:

One night, my girlfriend Ana and I were talking about our respective fantasies, “says Dimo,” Apparently we both had the same idea in mind, that is to say, sex with three, but without daring to talk about it together. It’s still a huge taboo! Yet there is nothing wrong with sex as long as you do not hurt anyone! ”

The day after this discussion, Dimo ​​decided to create an app so that each iPhone owner could find a three-dimensional plan near him: “I did some research on the web, I watched Craiglist, swingers chats, etc. All these sites are expensive, a little shady and quite incompetent “.

In February 2014, Dimo ​​put on line a page of presentation of his future app which he calls “Feeld”. He created a Twitter account () and subscribed to some influential journalists: “In 3 days, all the media started to talk about us: The Independent, the Daily Mail … Everyone has taken over the subject. is watched with my girlfriend and we said to ourselves: “Finally, we are not the only ones!”

In one month, 15,000 candidates sign up for Feeld’s beta. Dimo recruits developers and convinces some investors to bet 15,000 pounds (about 19,000 euros) on the development of its application. In early July, after three months work, Feeld is finally available with a simple and effective baseline: “The trio facilitates: meet people open-minded”. Today, the app has more than 230,000 users, most of whom are between 18 and 30 years old. A success still confidential compared to the 10 million regular users of Tinder or the 5 million profiles claimed by Grindr.

One of the most appealing aspects of Feeld – apart from its simplicity and Tinder-like design – is its benevolent and sexually neutral world: no X photos, just a collection of selfies and names to like (or not). Another good point, the inclusive side of the app: homosexual users, straight, bi or polyamorous, couples or singles, rub shoulders peacefully.

“Apps like Tinder are very conservative,” Dimo ​​Trifonov tackles, “they separate homos and straight guys, you can not pick your gender, still months tell if you’re transgender. On Feeld, it’s possible! ”

But Feeld, it’s still the subscribers who talk about it the best. Some like Julien and Stéphane, in couple for 7 years, are already fans: “Feeld has allowed us to get away from gay dating sites where couples are often poorly perceived because the guys are mostly trying to get into a fuck or two.” Others like Audrey say: “It’s been three months since I registered, I had thirty” matches “but nothing has materialized,” she regrets.

“It’s normal!” Says the creator of the app, “even my girlfriend and I have not found the right person yet to take the plunge, but I know people who have changed their lives. couple said to me: “It’s been three years that we galerait to find a plan for three. Thanks to Feeld, we found one in 3 days! “

Spontaneity VS effectiveness


The app also raises some safety issues especially for its users. Even if the login via an existing Facebook account is supposed to reduce the risks of falling on a false profile or worse, on a sexual predator. So far, no such incident is to be deplored, according to Dimo ​​Trifonov. What about the exploitation and sale of user data? “For now, we do not exploit this data,” swears the creator of the app. As for subscribers who dread what will be said, Feeld offers an option “incognito” (paid) that allows to make his profile invisible to friends, family or possibly his partner …

With Feeld, the threesome loses spontaneity and romance as much as it gains in efficiency. Forget the evening watered with the friend who will spend the night between you and your other half. Here, the fantasy is reduced to the size of an application. Feeld forces fate. But it must be admitted that organizing a threesome can be tricky. “It’s pure algebra, yes!”, Explains Laure, 26 years old, in a relationship since 5 years and a delightful user of Feeld., “The girl must please me, as well as my boyfriend and we need him please too! ” Should we go through an app? “It’s simpler! I do not see myself struggling on a site libertine and still trying to convince a colleague of work to come and test my guy at home!”.

Next week Feeld will launch a crowfunding campaign to improve its interface which still knows some bugs: “We have problems with the messaging system, we are in the process of rewriting it in full.We will also add a voicemail and a possibility of ‘send selfies a little like Snapchat, the goal is to no longer have to leave the application to get in touch with your “match” in any case, to the foot of the bed.
