VOX - Apr 4 - A gay psychiatrist went on Grindr to survey men. He asked them why they're on the app how it's affecting their relationships and mental health. The most common reason users gave for going on the app is sex. Though there is this new attention to sexual health, both Grindr and the research community have been silent on mental health. Yet since 2007, more gay men have died from suicide than from HIV. Grindr may provide men with some relief from their anxiety and depression. But it's temporary. Not all Grindr users are addicted and depressed, of course. Some users use Grindr in a healthy, positive way.
