Sexy Mobile Apps? iTunes Had Plenty Of Them!

Prior to 2010, there used to be lots of mobile applications at the iTunes store, the functions of which were more than a little naughty. Apple, however, did not take too kindly to the more titillating of such apps – and most of them were banned, much to the disappointment of many iPhone-users worldwide. We here look back at some really sexy mobile apps that are either no longer available, or still have a presence at iTunes:

1. Bikini Blast – Images of hotbods in itsy-bitsy bikinis – that was what this rather plainly-named iPhone app offered to users. The photos (at least most of them) were pretty aesthetically captured – and there were hardly any hint of vulgarity. Probably Apple was not aware that much more objectionable images could be viewed in any standard ‘R’-rated movie. Bikini Blast was sexy, but definitely not lewd.

2. Sexy Game – Gaming app with a touch of erotica about it. Sexy Game represented the height of imaginativeness on the part of mobile app developers – who included a virtual wheel in the application. The wheel had to be spun (practically, a variant of ‘Spin The Bottle’), and if you won, you got to… well… touch any body part of a scorching member of the opposite sex. There were even personalized setting options, to make the game even more interesting.

3. LoveLine – This one is basically a knowledge-sharing app, and that’s probably why it escaped the wrath of Apple. Once LoveLine is set up and launched on your iOS device, the hypothetical Dr. Drew appears – providing all the relevant (and exciting!) details about the physical aspect of romance. Not quite the type of information you would want your kid to listen – but it’s not a bad app at all!

4. Puma Index – Feel that stockbrokers are boring, stiff-lipped professionals – with no feel for fun and excitement whatsoever? You would be surprised at the sheer number of Dow Jones executives who had the Puma Index application in their phone. There were virtual female models showcased in the app – each representing a company’s share. As share prices started to fall, the models began to strip (you read that right!). It’s a good thing that no other mobile app development company has yet thought of creating such a ‘business-meets-pleasure’ application!

5. iJiggly – Okay, this app did reek of perversion, and deserved to be ousted from the iTunes store (it should not have been included in the first place!). There were no other features on this application other than displaying a pair of jiggling… well, you probably have already guessed what. High-schoolers with vivid fantasies were saddened when iJiggly was banned, but parents heaved a sigh of relief.

6. Maxim – Every issue of the magazine is filled with pictures of scantily-clad celebs, and its mobile app version did not take much time to become popular either. The application can be downloaded for free, while a nominal price has to be paid – for getting the hot cover photos of new issues. During a long, boring day, gazing at an hourglass figure is a pretty cool idea, right?

7. Adult Sex Life – The name says it all. An average expert on iPhone app development cannot possibly imagine about the in-depth details regarding sexual positions, pleasure-giving during physical intercourses, and even orgasm information that this ‘strictly for adults’ application provided. If you had a steady partner, you could keep track of her intercourse ‘performances’ as well.

8. Eucalyptus – Only staring at semi-naked bodies is not quite your thing? Among the slightly erotic iPhone reading apps, Eucalyptus is probably the most noteworthy. Nearly 21000 famous sexual literature can be read on this app – including the Indian bible of sex education, Kamasutra. It is a paid app – but hey, the thrill of reading such sexy texts make the expense more than worth it!

9. iGirl – When Apple announced that iGirl was going to be banned, many young adults almost felt the pain of a breakup. The mobile app developers of this one have to be credited for creating an app that had become the veritable pocket-girlfriend of thousands of users worldwide. Apart from interacting with the virtual babe, people could also tell her to pose in sultry, seductive positions. With iGirl gone, a fine source of sexy fun for iPhone owners was lost.

10. What’s Your Sex Appeal? – Probably the least objectionable of the apps mentioned on this list. This one is still available for download, and it helps you to confirm (or otherwise!) whether you are indeed a handsome hunk or not. The app is designed in the format of a fun quiz (comprising of twenty questions). If you answer them truthfully, you will get an idea of your hotness quotient.

11. Playboy – Since the ban on sexy iPhone apps, developers have stayed well clear of making apps like the one for Playboy magazine. Right from almost naked (but fit!) female bodies and vulgar jokes, to racist comments – the app had it all, and it getting banned was, for all purposes, only a matter of time. The Playboy application did not feature full nudity – but it was still way too bold for the Apple authorities.

12. PeekaBabe – Played the ‘Peek-a-Boo’ game as a child? This naughty (with a hint of perversion) app functioned in basically the same manner. You could, by shaking the iPhone or tapping on the screen, catch a glimpse of the lingerie that the otherwise fully-clothed lady inside the app was wearing. PeekaBabe was nothing short of an absolute delight for voyeuristic, slightly frustrated users – who mourned when the app disappeared from iTunes.

Flirt By So Sexy was a mighty popular app which got banned because it portrayed images and live videos of real girls in… erm… PG-13 positions. iHottiez and iSteam were removed from the app store due to roughly similar reasons. If you are a fan of sweaty, sexy exercising, you might have already used the Gymbabes application on your smartphone. Apple currently has a strong stand against apps with any sort of sex-connotations – but previously, things were a lot more spicy!
