Ever since World War II, the Germans have really had their stuff together. Last year, they won the World Cup. This year? This year they decided to revolutionize prostitution, as a recently released German application called “Ohlala” is being called “the Uber for escorts.” They’ve probably done some other good stuff too since then.
But back to Ohlala. According to TechCrunch:
Ohlala is a platform where people connect to meet for their “paid dates” offline. (Paid dates is the language used here). It’s that simple. One person wants to be paid, the other one wants to pay. “Whatever those two people want to do — may it be to give company at a dinner or end up in bed together — is a private matter and should be agreed upon in the chat before meeting,” says Poppenreiter. “It’s simple: We match people for paid dates immediately. It actually solves problems in this marketplace, that dating sites and most escort sites don’t solve: We match expectations, on-demand.”
While Ohlala is only available in German at the moment, an English version seems to be right around the corner. Whether this app makes it way to America has yet to be determined.
I’m not sure if this app is a good thing or a bad thing, but I’ll tell you what, Ohlala is certainly going to get a lot of thirsty dudes caught cheating. Bank on it.
