Hot Or Not? The Lulu App Lets You Rate Your Guy Friends

Sex and The City once did an episode where Carrie and Charlotte trolled for men outside a cafe, rating every guy that passed by on a scale of Sleep With to Definitely Not Sleep With. Had that episode occurred in the age of iPhones and apps, all they'd have to do is open Lulu, the new app that lets women secretly score the men in their Facebook network.

Think of Lulu as one big, never-ending gossip sesh with your girlfriends. When women download the app, it syncs with their Facebook friend list and singles out the men (if you're interested in women, you're out of luck, but hopefully that will change). The fellas are rated on a 10-point scale that factors in everything from their bedroom skills to their work ethic. It's not a dating site per se, just a girl's only Hot Or Not. All the dish is on the DL among the girls, but if a guy tries to log on, he's blocked. That is, unless, he invites 25 of his lady friends to join Lulu. Then, and only then, will he be able to see his rating (if he's really hungry for validation, here's a step-by-step guide).
Honestly, though, we find this sort of thing pretty unnecessary. We wouldn't stand for this if it were men rating women, and this is equally annoying if you believe that attractiveness is so much more than a number assigned to a Facebook picture. (Business Insider)
