How long have you been making Android apps?
Four years. I wrote an app called Calcutrip. It's a journey cost calculator.
How did you get involved with The Book of Filthy Sex Games?
I've been friends with, well, tolerated, the author for several years. He told me about the book and asked me if I'd like to do an app version. I called him a pervert and told him to piss off. Then I decided I might get to see women in latex, so I said yes.
What made you decide to say yes to the project?
I'm all for people experimenting, but with stuff like this it needs to be done carefully and safely. That is the books raison d'etre and a good reason to do it.
Have you told you friends and family about this app?
Some of them. Those who I feel are open-minded enough to be able to deal with it.
Are you yourself experienced in the kink content in the app?
Experienced? Only in my mind.
What was it like working with such content? Did you enjoy it?
It was an eye opener! There were a number of terms I had never heard before and, frankly, never want to hear again. Though I do seem to be developing an obsession with ladies in tight, shiny outfits.
Is there much difference between it and other digital formats?
As the text is part of a larger computer program it meant we could offer different functionality to other formats, like storing favourite games and searching by venue, duration etc.
Did the author help you with the app or did he leave it to you?
He dealt with the formatting, asked me a lot of silly questions and was generally annoying.
How were Google Play about the mature content?
They were fine. They have systems in place to allow developers to warn consumers of more adult content. It's very simple and effective.
Are there plans for an Apple app version?
We're seeing how sales go. If it's well received we'll look to do an Apple version.
Who would you recommend this app to?
Anyone curious about adult games and how to get into it safely.
What has been the responses to the app so far?
It's early days for the app, but the book has had some incredible reviews.
Has The Book of Filthy Sex Games been controversial do you think?
It could be. There's always the possibility of controversy where sex is involved.
