In this time of isolation it is more important than ever to find ways to stay connected. Lockdown measures have changed our lives as we know them and challenged us to think of new ways of staying close and spontaneous. This is where our group chats feature comes in. Allowing up to 25 people to chat on Feeld, it allows solo explorers, couples or friends to create their own micro-communities inside the app. From platonic connections to remote group play, group chats are there to open up new ways of connecting with sex-positive humans around the world. Here are some of the ways humans on Feeld can use group chats:
1. Group chats for community building
If you're new to Feeld and not ready to dive into the deep end, think of group chats as your sex-positive friend group. Group chats are not all about naughty expiring photos but spaces for sharing and discussing all topics without judgement. From finding new friends and exploring platonic relationships to starting ultra specific micro-communities, group chats can bring you closer to likeminded strangers who are going through the same thing. To find humans anywhere in the world, not just close to you, you can join one of our new virtual Cores.
2. Group chats for couples exploration
Group chats are also perfect for couples looking to share experiences with other humans. In these socially distanced times, there is something of a silver lining for humans feeling uncertain about experimenting with their relationship structure or sexuality. This is an opportunity for couples to dip their toes in dating together by joining a chat with a third human or another couple.
The same goes for single humans, who can connect with couples or other solo explorers and see if group play is for them. Platonic, romantic or focused on pleasure, group chats can be a great testing ground for exploring dynamics outside heteronormative structures.
To facilitate these connections, we have dedicated one of our new virtual cores specifically to Remote Trios. Upon joining the Remote Trios core, your Discover will show you couples and singles looking for the same thing. You can start a group chat to set the scene and add expiring photos to bridge those distances instantly.
3. Group chats for group play
Sex-positive communities have been significantly impacted by the pandemic and have been exploring ways of reorganising online. In this context, Feeld group chats offer a safe space to stay connected while getting in the mood. Think of it as foreplay to an online play party.
If you get especially excited about one of the humans in a group chat, you can Share your Profile with them via the Settings menu and take the conversation to a more private space.
As with all instances of transparent and sex-positive interaction, the number one rule is ensuring the enthusiastic consent of all humans you are adding to a group chat. Always ask and provide context when inviting your Connections to group play; it's the spark that will light the flame.
