After hearing this explanation, I admit I somehow accidentally referred to Ohlala as an escort service at which point Poppenreiter reminded me that her company has never referred to itself as such and, moreover, that she would more accurately classify it as a dating app with a payment mechanism built into it.Dating App Happn Reaches 10 Million Users, Adds Voice Dating App Zoosk Destroyed By Tinder, Drops 1/3 Of Staff Dating App Once Uses Your Heart Rate To Help You Find Love Chinese Gaming Firm Buys 60% Of Gay Dating App Grindr For M Though Ohlala appears to have gotten its legal ducks in a row by willful ignorance (IANAL), it’s probably worth noting that there are some pretty significant differences between prostitution laws in Germany and the state of New York.dating app popular in Germany, is launching its services today in its first American market, New York City.It was no sooner than Ohlala’s CEO and co-founder Pia Poppenreiter had begun describing her app as one that “connects people to go on instant, paid dates,” that she began listing a cavalcade of caveats.Germany has what many would call a booming sex work industry, where regulations are more generally aimed at protecting the sex workers’ well-being and safety.

“But what happens on the date is actually a private matter,” Poppenreiter said.“And you have to wait to use the app until you’re 21.” Of course we both knew what we were talking about, but my going through the process of an interview filled with raised eyebrows and eye rolls is probably fairly representative of the marketing that the Berlin-founded Ohlala will be undergoing as it begins selling the gospel of romance-by-the-hour in NYC.Clients sent requests directly to sex workers and the interface led to a significant number of canceled requests.Ohlala approaches the connection for “paid dates” in a manner that allows for more instant liaising.

The company also announced a .7 million seed round raise today with investment from Max Finger, Ben Kubota and Markus Ertler.Before creating Ohlala, Poppenreiter had worked on building Peppr, an app that more explicitly sought to connect clients to sex workers providing “erotic entertainment.” Where the app struggled was in the logistics of facilitating these connections quickly.
