Live video chat you can be girl boy
When I told Al that I was a reporter trying to get a feel for Monkey, he was happy to tell me all about it, saying that he’d met some pretty interesting people in addition to all the literal and figurative dicks.“I think there is an interesting element to meeting someone from around the world,” Al said.“We’ve never been more connected than this.”Al had been with Monkey for awhile.
Jay, a 29-year-old from Bridgeport, Connecticut, was also just getting the hang of Monkey when we matched up, and he thought it was “pretty cool.” Jay explained that he’d started using the app because he’d gotten a text saying he should.
Monkey allows users to send text invites to their friends, but Jay said he didn’t know the number that had texted him.
Props to Jay, I guess, for getting a mystery text telling him to use an app he’d never heard of and just going for it. I say that not just because I don’t necessarily want to risk seeing weird dicks in order to chat with some randos, but because the app is clearly not meant for me.
He explained that he had gotten to know Monkey’s founder, Ben Pasternak, through Snapchat, back before he “got too famous for me.” Pasternak was fishing for feedback about Monkey, and Al gave him some gentle criticism about the amount of genitalia he was seeing.
Monkey has since added a little policeman emoji in the upper corner of the chat screen, which can be used to easily report and block inappropriate monkey business.
