New sex apps allow users to hook up with Facebook friends.

Washington, March 11 ( ANI ): In what could be called Internet sex-making, two new sex-related online services are helping the techie and social media savvy people to find their sexual partners.

One of the services named, Bang with SXSW, is a spin-off of Bang with Friends, a service that launched last month to much Internet scrutiny, criticism, ABC News reported.

Bang with Friends, which was started by three young twenty-somethings, allows users to sign into the service via Facebook and then select the friends of the opposite sex they'd like to, well, bang.

When that friend also selects them, then the pair receives a notification that the other is "down to bang."

"SXSW is just a place for people to meet other amazing people and usually some of those people have sex and hook up," the founder of Bang with Friends, who prefers to be identified right now as C, told ABC News.

Since launching at the end of January, "Bang with Friends" has gained 750,000 users and according to C, there have been 180,000 successful pairings.

The main service, while controversial in many regards, requires that you are friends on Facebook.

The SXSW version of the site, however, shows all the people who have registered for the service at the event and you don't have to be friends on Facebook to select someone you might want to "bang".

"Bang with SXSW" isn't just trying to make sure SXSW attendees "bang," it is also focused on promoting safer sex in Austin this week and is marketing the site by handing out thousands of condoms across the city. ( ANI )
