These days we are so busy that even when we want to let off some steam and indulge in erotic desires, we find it a daunting task to look for someone who would satisfy our needs.
Our phones and computers are our best friends these days. We do everything on them – we use them for work, paying bills. Why not use them for some grown-up fun and spare ourselves the overpriced drinks at the bar just to get a date for that night?
The number of adult dating apps out there is truly overwhelming. There is a number of those which you use specifically to find a potential spouse. Don’t fret, though. There are still those that offer good, old-fashioned hookups.
However, I am sure you do not have time to go through all of them and see which ones suit you.
Luckily, we did a little research, and there is a new app Yumi that boasts some very unique and interesting features, unlike any other app.
I am sure you are already familiar with a lot of dating apps out there and wondering why Yumi is any different. Let me first ask you a question – do you prefer to stay anonymous while trying to hook up or while casually sending someone those kinky messages?
If the answer is a big yes, then you know Yumi is the right app for you.
Yumi advertises itself as the new hookup and chat app that is totally anonymous. Yes, you’ve heard me. And you are probably already wondering how any app can be TOTALLY anonymous.
The registration process is quite simple, and most of all, it doesn’t take endless questions in a survey to start making a profile. You download the app, register for free (there is Yumi Plus, you have to pay for but which also offers more features, but we will get back to that) and bam – you are ready to mingle.
Since there is a registration process, you are probably wondering if it requires any of your personal info.
That is the beauty of Yumi – to register, you don’t need to give out your email, phone, Facebook, blood type results, or your bank account (there are unconventional adult dating apps that require some of these, believe it or not).
This complete anonymity appeals to a lot of people who want to avoid being recognized by their boss on the dating app or who get excited by meeting total strangers. Although you can add your gender and state your desired preference, your photo is NOT mandatory.
It is truly up to you if you want the photo to be shown, in addition to the recording of your voice, which is quite an interesting touch. If you do decide to post a photo to your profile, you can also decide if you want it to be blurred. Moreover, you can add some fun stickers or filters to keep anonymity.
One quite unique feature would be adding the voice snippet to your profile. Studies have shown that the attractiveness of voice has a big impact on interpersonal attraction. And it might so happen that you are attracted to someone not at first sight, but at the first sound.
The melodious voice you hear can be an instant invitation for you to message the person if you are into those kinds of things.
Plus, it adds an element of surprise and kinkiness that can easily spark your imagination if you just hear the voice of your potential fling.
Another quite appealing feature of Yumi is that it is totally free. And the beauty of it is that this free period is not a trial period or time-bound. You get your NSA hookups indefinitely. Now, if you realize you love Yumi so much, they do offer Yumi Plus account, which has some exciting features and benefits.
Yumi Plus is quite an affordable subscription. There are three options you can choose from:
- 1 month Yumi Plus for $19.99
- 3 months Yumi Plus for $39.99, $13.33 per month
- 6 months Yumi Plus for $59.99, $9.99 per month
You can find people you like, even if you decide not to pay the app. However, your chances of finding a successful match grow if you opt for Yumi Plus.
Free Account Benefits
The element of luck and thrill is how the app rolls. The app creators say that this is what separates Yumi from other apps – “it favors the lucky.”
The app gives all its users four different cards. Now, this is the catch – your potential matches are located under two of them. Once you flip the cards, you wait for the magic to happen. There is a 50:50 chance of seeing the face you would like to hook up with. However, once you actually flip the cards, you are done for that day, whether you find a match or not.
Every 24 hours, your cards are reshuffled, so you can find a match for the day. There is something called “Extra Flip”, which allows its users to choose two or more cards, instead of only one out of those four. This helps you continue the search until you hopefully find your match.
So you’ve flipped the cards, and you’ve found your match! What now? Well, you have 24 hours to initiate the conversation, and if you don’t, the opportunity will disappear.
You don’t have time to be shy, and why would you? After all, you came to the adult dating app (and the one that specializes in hookups) for a reason. No time for prudishness now!
The messaging system exists to help you relax a bit if you are still feeling shy. Once you get to know the person a bit, you can send them some photos. If you realize you actually don’t like the photos that much, you have 3 minutes to delete them from the chat.
Once you get even more comfortable, you can send voice messages. And as it was mentioned, if you are the person who often connects vocal attractiveness with interpersonal attraction, then this is a great way to get things heated up.
The fact that you can send photos to each other even if you don’t have profile photos can be kind of reassuring, as you actually get to see the person you would want to have an NSA relationship with.
And if you really start digging the person and want to meet up, you can also send your location via the chat and get together.
Yumi Plus Benefits
Although the app does offer many features for free, if you like it enough and become a Yumi Plus, you will have so many more fun options.
Remember the “Flips” the app uses to find you the match? By upgrading to Yumi Plus, you get 6 “Extra flips”, which definitely increases your chances of finding a match.
With Yumi Plus, your conversation does not expire after 24h like with the Basic Yumi membership. In addition to being able to see the conversation, you can restart it at any time if you realize you might have liked the person from the flip after all.
Moreover, one of the crucial benefits that Yumi Plus members can enjoy is being able to see who liked them, even if the match disappeared, and the conversation expired. This makes a world of difference and can boost your ego a bit on days you are not lucky enough.
The Yumi Crowd
The Yumi community are all people using the app for one thing – the hookup. The app makes a big deal of it being completely anonymous, so the crowd consists of all those who value their privacy and anonymity a lot, while also wanting to get some adult fun.
You only have to be over 18, and you can experience the charms of the app. Yumi welcomes a variety of groups – male, female, couples, singles, LGBT. There’s a little something for each of you.
When you select your gender, you can also choose your preference, which makes life easier, as not all members have photos.
The app creators encourage members to include a variety of basic info, including ethnicity, body type, religion, drinking, drug and smoking habits, even your STD status. While you may decide not to include all of these, the less info you provide, the fewer responses you will get.
Yumi also has a stringent policy about sex workers. They clearly state that it is just a dating app for the casual hookups and not the promotional one for sex workers.
You Will Like It If
- You always keep in mind that Yumi is the hookup app
Do not expect to find the love of your life on the app or to spend endless hours of chatting about your favorite TV shows and coffee flavors.
There is a slim chance that you really might like someone that much and your hookup turns into something serious (you know what I am talking about if you’ve seen “No Strings Attached” with Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman).
- You really value anonymity above everything else
The app mentions it several times that it is completely and utterly anonymous if you want it to be that way. It is up to you how much or how little you want to give out.
- You are in for a little bit of luck
You might not get the match during the first flip. You might not even get it during the second flip! But if you are excited by this kind of gambling, you will surely love Yumi.
You Will Not Like It If
- You are looking for a serious commitment and only that
As it has been stated, the app is strictly a hookup app. You might get disappointed if you come searching for your better half here.
- Like anonymity but not complete anonymity
When finding a potential hookup, some of you might find it a turn-off if there are not enough details about that person. Especially if the person doesn’t even have a photo.
Although you can exchange photos later on, not everyone will upload them immediately, which may be a deal-breaker for some people.
- Want to have all the features the app offers but without having to pay for them
The app offers a lot of benefits and interesting features, but you have to pay for them. The price is not that high, but it’s also not lower than other apps.
You definitely must weigh your preferences and see if you are willing to pay or if you can manage without that.
- You are impatient and in a hurry to find a fling
Sometimes the matches do not come flowing to you, and it might take a while. In that case, you might want to widen your location range, which should help with the search.
All in all, Yumi has a lot of potential to grow and become a great hookup app that offers its users some adult fun, while also valuing their wish to stay anonymous. It’s free, so you don’t have to worry about paying for it if you don’t like it.
And it does offer some unique options even without paying for it. Benefits that Yumi Plus offers are quite appealing and make the experience even more exciting and pleasurable.
So if you are in the mood for an entirely anonymous hookup app, why not give it a go with Yumi?
