Uber’s New Guidelines Bans Flirting and Sex 

best_phone_sex_niteflirt_cabbiesFor the first time, Uber released new guidelines that forbid flirting and sex between drivers and passengers. It tells both riders and drivers alike, “please don’t comment on someone’s appearance or ask whether they are single. … And don’t touch or flirt with other people in the car.” The ban is an attempt to deter the unwanted sexual attention women often report about Uber drivers.

Now, according to the Uber terms, drivers and riders could get banned from the service for “asking overly personal questions, and making comments or gestures that are aggressive, sexual, discriminatory, or disrespectful.” It expressly forbids all sexual contact between drivers and passengers, even after a ride is over, “no matter what.” The anti-flirting guideline may help curb harassment and creepy situations for women, such as the incident a Boston.com reporter described where a driver offered her oral sex and locked the doors to keep her from getting out. Hey, creepy Uber dudes: harassment is not flirting—and it’s definitely not sexy.

Looking to get flirty? We are always down for some touching and flirting here!
