But just because it's the new normal, it doesn't mean it's going to have a 100% success rate.

Nadia Bokody seems to think dating apps are crawling with "cringe-inducing profiles" and crude men.

The sex writer, from Australia, warns that there is a "disturbing" sex trend where men make X-rated requests on apps.

Speaking about a man who "left to do his laundry", Nadia called out the excuse the fella made after steamy session.

She told news.com.au : "'I've got to get going. I have laundry to do'.

"That was the excuse of a man once made to leave immediately after we had sex.

"A guy leaping out of bed to go put his delicates on spin cycle was a new low, even for me.

"Still, I only have myself to blame. After all, I swiped right to a profile pic of a shirtless gym selfie. Really, what was I expecting?!"

And that's the thing about dating apps, as Nadia points out it's kind of what you get with the package.

After all, it's an environment that connects people with strangers under normal circumstances.

Nadia added: "Here's the problem...

"Dating apps can also open the floodgates for unfettered misogyny, sexual harassment, and deeply questionable behaviour."

Discussing a paper published in Pew Research, Nadia said 19% of women aged 18 to 34 will have experienced abuse on dating apps.

She explained: "More worryingly, younger women were shown to be the most likely targets of threats of violence online.

"Behind the bravado and sexual aggression of these crude come-ons lies a deep fragility in need of addressing.

"Research shows men often feel pressured to pursue sex to receive validation from their peers and fulfil perceived gender norms."

She continued: "Rom-coms depict charming men unrelentingly chasing females in the face of rejection as the epitome of true love.

"Cringe-inducing profile pics and post-coital ghosting aside, there's a bigger issue here.

"When we teach boys sex is a right, and to define their masculinity by how vigorously they pursue it.

"In reality what we're really doing is telling them girls don't matter. And that's a scary precedent to set."
