#7 - It's Rating Men

Friday, November 15, 2013 - 03:15 PM

Lulu is an app that lets women rate guys they've slept with. Was he willing to commit? Was he gassy? The ratings are anonymous, and men can't see their profiles.

When Lulu launched earlier this year, people didn't like it, but it also seemed more like a thought experiment than a real social network women would use. Nine months later, the company says that one in four female college students is using it. This week, we talk about Lulu with Maureen O'Connor, who blogs for New York Magazine's The Cut.
