Apps Track Data in the Bedroom :- The Quantified Sex Life

As, there's no shortage of gadgets and apps to help people to track their latest physical coups, from their fastest mile to the "biggest air" they've achieved on a snowboard. Now it is possible to gather personal performance data in the bedroom, too.

A new mobile app called Spreadsheets which aims to keep track of its users' loudest, longest and most zealous encounters in the sack. 

The Spreadsheets app relies on a smartphone's accelerometer to monitor movement, and uses the device's microphone to measure audio levels. This app makers promise it doesn't record, or play back audio or video from its users' encounters.

That data then crunches by Spreadshets to give a statistical and visual analysis of performance, showing the noise level, thrusts per minute and duration of each session. Those metrics alone may not be the best determining factors behind good sex for everyone. But perhaps mobile technology as it stands is not yet equipped to measure the more nuanced aspects of sexual prowess.

Another new app called Kahnoodle which is designed for committed couples trying to keep the fires burning in their relationship. It sends push notifications to remind users to initiate sex and do thoughtful things for each other. It also lets partners collect "koupons" for sex or domestic chores, and keeps track of users' relationship give-and-take with a "love tank," that reads from full to empty.

Kahnoodle's founder Zuhairah Scott Washington told the Atlantic, "Couples have a desire to go out and do something new, but oftentimes they're tired. The mobile app incorporates a lot of research on what makes relationships successful, but gamifies it to make it fun, makes it fun to do the work required to keep relationships fresh."

Kahnoodle's launch prompted some snarky objections to its gamified approach to relationships. One Digital Trends story read, "If you need an app to tell you when to have sex, it's over."
