Creating a ssl socket using OpenPGP keys

I'd like to create a simple app to chat securely.
Use OpenPGP keys on both ends (because lots of users already have
OpenPGP keys)

User selects a public key to communicate
He or the system finds the IP/TCP address
The other end sees who is trying to contact him
The other end accepts or refuses the connection.
Both chat securely.

Is there an easy way to create a SSL socket using OpenPGP keys?

Any suggestion or alternative scheme would be appreciated.
