With more than 53,000 subscribers, /r/randomactsofblowjob might be the most enthralling subreddit for hookups, simply because the rules of engagement are so specific: You post your age, sexual identity and what you're looking for, accompanied by a short description relaying any notable details. '"These subreddits are also somewhat unique in that there are way more ads posted by women for men than you would assume.Maybe you're a 78-year-old woman woman looking for some fun, or maybe you want to give three blowjobs at once as a throwback to your college years. It's archaic, but it's direct, and that's the point."After my girlfriend and I had a discussion about making our relationship open, RAOBJ was one of the first places I thought to look for casual hookups, because it was so simple, straightforward and honest," subscriber Ryan, 26, told . If you go to /r/randomactsofblowjob or /r/dirtyr4r you'll see a lot of posts by straight dudes, but you'll also see a healthy number from straight women, as well as queer and trans people.If you've ever been strung along in the "what are we?" convo purgatory for agesssss, you know it's a very particular form of emotional torture.You'd get a lot of left swipes and a lot of trolling if you came clean on Tinder about your deep-seated incestuous fantasy or your marital status.But on a platform like Reddit, people are more open about their sexual desires, whether they're taboo or not.Reddit can also be an inclusive space for LGBT people.
"), Reddit gives people a way to bypass the bullshit and just get laid. People tend to lay their situation out a little more than on OKCupid and particularly Tinder," said a 22-year-old headhunter named Sarah who's used /r/dirtyr4r.Considering that apps like Tinder are often considered unwelcoming if not downright hostile to women and LGBT people, it's not so surprising that these users would migrate elsewhere to get laid.But it is somewhat surprising that they'd flock to Reddit, a website that's been trying to shed its reputation as a bastion of sexism for years."I'm looking for a good time, not a long time": But one reason why Ryan and other Redditors are flocking to subreddits is to escape some of the pomp and circumstance you'll find in places like Tinder and OKCupid, which have a tendency to dress up the stark reality of hookup culture into something a little more modest and demure.~Eggplants and peach emojis all around.~ good relationship run, right? The survey found that 51 percent of people between ages 18 and 35 who have never online dated-and have no intention of online dating-report having had no more than one committed relationship over their adult life.Meanwhile, only 26 percent of online daters can say the same.As difficult as people say it is to find love in the 21st century, it's pretty easy to get laid.You can take the traditional route and try your luck at a club or a bar. Or you can stick to the Tinders and Ok Cupids of the world, websites and applications specifically designed to aid and abet casual hookups.There's a strong pro-community spirit that mirrors that of Reddit itself."Reddit's an existing community, so it's really easy to drift towards hookups," Adam*, a man who uses both Reddit and Craigslist for hookups, told ."I was used to interacting with people on Reddit, so to me, it seems totally natural to use it a hookup platform, almost the same way people in any existing highly social environment (school, workplace, activities, etc) will invariably start hooking up with each other."Ultimately, there's nothing explicitly different about hooking up on Reddit as opposed to using Craigslist, Adult Friend Finder or any other no-strings-attached hookup engine; after all, we've been using anonymous Internet forums to find hookups for decades now.But redditors say there is something unique about the community itself.
