Look, we all know that making phones calls, sending texts and browsing the web is cool, but we all really want our phones to help make us better lovers. Luckily, Cosmopolitan is trying to make that happen and it has just released a Sex Position of the Day app for Android.
Despite what Steve Jobs said about Android being for porn, this Cosmopolitan app has been available on the Apple iPhone since December of last year and it has been downloaded more than 80,000 times. The company said users spend an average of about 10 minutes per session with it (I wonder why) and now Android fans can have the same experience.
The Sex app costs $2.99 and it shows you a different sex position each day in the form of relatively cartoon-like figures. There’s also a “Carnal Challenge Rating” which describes how difficult certain positions are, as well as hints to help you make the most of the position.
One would expect this type of “filth” to be freely available on the Android platform because it’s an open platform built for all comers (see what I did there?), but the Apple iPhone platform has gone out of its way to ensure that racy content won’t dirty its users’ minds. Of course, I bet it helps that this is coming from an old media company. It’s not even the first Apple iPhone app to show off sex positions and I guess the trick is to use illustrations that are meant to inform, not to titillate.
The Cosmopolitan Sex Position of the Day app may help Android users close the gap with Apple iPhone owners when it comes to making the beast with two backs. A recent survey suggested Apple iPhone owners have more sex than Android or BlackBerry users.
