What is is a widely used and very interactive dating site that seeks to put you in touch with other singles and couples around the world, or right next door. Unlike most dating sites, this one is designed for girls and guys into BDSM and other fetish action, so it is one of the few online specialised dating sites. Registration is free, and you can upgrade to get even more out of the stunning dating site that is

Registration and Getting Started (what you first see)

Although the first thing you will see at is the sign-up form, you can browse the site and see the main pages before registering. You won't be able to see the details until you've started a free membership, though, so it’s best to register before you start looking around. It’s 100% free and a very simple five-step process. Here’s what you can expect.

Step one

A simple form with only a few things to tick.

  • Gender: Yes.
  • Register as a couple: No.
  • Looking for: Man, woman, couples, trans.

Step two

  • Birth date: Yes.
  • Country/Location: Yes.
  • State: Yes.
  • Closest City: Yes.

Step three

  • Email address: Yes.
  • Create a username: Yes.
  • Create Password: Yes.

Step four

All of these questions have a ‘prefer not to say’ option, so you can leave them, carry on and come back to them later.

  • Sexual orientation: Straight, gay/lesbian, bi-curious, bisexual.
  • Body Type. From ‘ample’ to slim/petite.
  • Race.
  • Marital status.
  • Role.

Step five

Introduction title: You must write at least 10 characters. Written introduction: Optional. Activation email/link: An email link is sent to your email address to validate your membership. This should take less than a minute to come to you. Click the link to return to the site. Consent to data (European users): You will see this next if you are in a European Union country. Agree and continue to the full, free site.

How To set up your Profile at

The next thing to do, once registered, is to expand your profile. The more you put in, the more you will get out. Tempting though it is to run searches for other members, if you've not got a detailed profile, the system won't know who to match you with. So, head to the links beneath the main menu where it says ‘Get 10 X more action’ and click the link to upload your profile photo, then come back and click over to your edit profile pages. These are very detailed.

Main profile details and what you can add:

Click to your profile page, and you have the option to add many details. These include:

  • Want to Meet: Man, woman, couples, groups, etc.
  • Introduction title: You will have already entered one, but you can change it here.
  • Tell others about yourself: The site gives you ideas of what to write.
  • Your ideal person: Who you are looking for.
  • Update and carry on.

Other details

A lefthand list gives you these additional and optional options. Some of the links open new pages and the left menu vanishes, but once you've edited the page, you can return to the main profile setup page and carry on.

  • Profile location: Where you are, where you are willing to travel to, where you grew up.
  • Physical information: This covers everything from your date of birth to whether you are circumcised or not.
  • Personal information: There are many options here from religion and education to languages (a choice of 13) and on to your private content details like ICQ and Messenger.
  • Additional Questions: This has a further expandable menu so you can talk about your goals, the scene you’re into, how you like to play, and BDSM fundamentals.
  • Personality Type: A long survey you can complete to say more about your personality.
  • Purity test: Are you a sexual prude or a full-blown hedonist? Take the survey to find out, while also telling other members more about yourself.
  • Add/Manage photos: As it says, add and manage your photo uploads.
  • Manage videos: The same with video clips; you can add your own.
  • My Kinks: Another very long list of options to click or ignore, depending on how much detail you want others to know.
  • Get confirm ID: You’ll be redirected to a page where you can earn 500 points by confirming your ID with official documentation. This is optional.

Is Free to Join?

Now, here’s the thing. Much of what you’ve seen and added at so far is free to view, but you can’t actually get into the details and see members’ videos and photos unless you pay. Assuming you use the site to find genuine hookups and friends, then paying to upgrade is worth it, and the prices compare favourably to the costs of other dating sites, but here, you are at a more specific site, because it’s aimed at those into BDSM, and unlike many dating sites, is specialised. Therefore, it is, again, worth paying to get the most out of the service.

Note: Your Gold or Silver plan gets you unlimited access to all members. But, free members can't initiate contact with you or view your profile.
