‘Grindr Unwrapped’ takes a look at sex and dating trends in 2020

Bears unwrapped! Popular queer dating app Grindr is giving its users a little something extra to unwrap this season!

Taking a note from the popular music streaming app Spotify, Grindr has released an unofficial year-end stats report, Grindr Unwrapped, on their blog. Inspired by Spotify’s year-end wrap up, Spotify Wrapped, Grindr HQ decided to “throw their hat in the ring in 2020”, and take a look at dating and sex trends among the nearly 13 million gay, bi, trans & queer folks who use their app throughout the year. 

Though the cheeky list allows users to see which countries and cities have the most tops or bottoms, or which day of the week seems most popular for hooking up, Grindr makes it clear that this information does not represent the entirety of neither the queer community or their users. 

“This data only represents a subsection of our users (not all Grindr users include this information on their profiles),” says Grindr HQ. 

Grindr itself only represents a subsection of the global queer community. So it’s important to note that this is not meant as a comprehensive or scientific report on global queer sex and dating behaviors. Instead, it’s meant as a fun and informal way to help our users get to know each other better, serve as an ice-breaker for conversations in the app, and provide some insights into Grindr activity trends from the year.

Though the many types of in-person meetings that people on Grindr usually pursue were off the table in 2020 (including, according to Grindr HQ, tennis partners), this doesn’t mean that people weren’t still… connecting… in some ways. People still found ways to enjoy themselves while social distancing at home. So, unwrap yourself and enjoy Grindr’s sex and dating snapshot for 2020!
