Do you need to hire an escort but you’re not sure where to look? Are the M4M pages of Craigslist a little too sketchy for you? Are you low on cash but you’ve got space on your credit card?
Well, search no further!
Rendevu is a new app specifically for escorts and their customers. Widely considered the “Uber for escorts,” it allows sex workers post real time availability, list their prices, and display customer ratings.
The UK-based app also allows clients to book appointments within five minutes–five minutes!–and enter their credit card info to pay for services.
In other words: No more leaving the money on the nightstand.
It’s also being praised for making sex work safer, as the appointment process involves an ID confirmation and all appointments are privately tracked. Once the appointment is over, the data is erased, meaning nobody knows it ever even happened. Clever, no?
“People never think about online security from the point of view of a sex industry worker,” CEO Reuben Coppa told the Daily Mail in a recent interview. “But they arguably need it more than any other professional.”
Rendevu only recently launched but it appears to be on the up and up. It just secured $700,000 in a recent round of funding, making it the only funded app in its niche.
“We’re a technology company entering adult services, not the other way around,” says Coppa. “This gives us a unique perspective on the industry and helps us solve safety, efficiency and usability issues effectively.”
