Dr Christine Knox from the Queensland University of Technology said the increase of random sex partners was frightening.
The microbiologist and mother of three adult children said the Blendr app was "terrifying" because it increased the likelihood of casual sex with "people who you know very little about". Having sex with multiple partners is one of the top three factors that heighten the chance of contracting a sexually transmitted disease, Dr Knox said. A lot of people think they're healthy and have no infections at all.
A year-old tradesman told the Daily he downloaded the app three weeks ago and found it a good way to meet like-minded people. He said he had had sex with a different woman almost every night, but defended Blendr's image as a "sleazy" iPhone app.
The Blendr enthusiast said there were many people who used the app to meet people and "not just for casual hook-ups". However from his perspective he was happier to find someone likeminded on Blendr than spend three hours talking to a woman in a bar. Dr Knox said young people needed to think of long-term consequences that could result from casual sex. The Blendr user who spoke to the Daily said he was conscious of protecting against diseases in the same way he would be if he found romance at a nightclub.

Kam Follow 0 followers 0 badges Send a private message to Kam Follow 13 Hi just came across this post and just wanted to say that the sites do have some genuine people Over a year ago when I first started Uni I went through a very promiscuous stage where all I wanted to do was have sex I can't across nostringsdating. I ended up meeting with about 13 people and sleeping with 11 of them Although there are a lot of fake profiles there are some real people on there if you're lucky In terms of replying to messages I think there significantly a lot more women than men on these sites and from my experience my inbox was always flooded I got to a point where I deleted my photos to reduce the amount of messages I would receive and would only speak to people I had instigated a conversation with So yeah just came across the post and wanted to defend the website a little bit lol.
