Submission + - A Woman Demystifies the "Dickonomics" of Tinder (

reifman writes: If I want to feel badly about myself, Tinder is the go-to app. In fact, it's hard for me to imagine a greater contrast to the experience of disempowerment I shared in 'Peepless in Seattle' than smart, funny, sex-positive writer Alana Massey's 'The Dickonomics of Tinder' who says she's 'grown increasingly skilled at selecting for only the most exceptional sex with every swipe.' Certainly, the rise of smartphones and dating apps have enabled a marketplace where her mantra 'dick is abundant and low value' is true. Massey says considerate, sexually responsible men that use proper punctuation are more likely to get the girl. My experience is that it's a lot more complicated than that but I do wish that we lived in a culture that encouraged sex positivity for all genders and a lot less misogyny. For the record, being a semi-vegan cat lover never seemed to work for me with anyone.
