Is Alt.com a Legit BDSM and Fetish Dating Site?

Alt.com

As the online dating world evolves, more and more interest is being taken in niche areas rather than general, broader interest sites. This isn't a huge surprise, as massively increasing numbers give internet dating a chance, even the most specific of interests are getting enough members to run sites successfully. The Alternative Lifestyle scene, however, is one of the largest sub-categories of the adult dating industry and boasts some of the biggest and most popular sites.

Alt.com is widely recognised as one of the leaders in this particular field – not only is it part of the huge Adult Friend Finder network of dating sites, which runs brands such as Friend Finder and AFF (see our review here), but it currently boasts membership numbers in the millions.

There's a lot about this site that reminds us of it's sister brands and that's definitely a good thing. The registration is straight-forward, requiring just a few steps but with the added security of captcha control and email verification to help ensure members on the site are genuine. The layout of the members area is instantly recognisable to anyone who has used other sites on this network and the features too, are very similar. The difference of course being that this similar structure and set up is populated by a whole other kind of online dater! The inhabitants here are subs, doms, foot worshippers, latex lovers, nylon touchers, leather clad bondage masters and a whole bunch of others with pretty much any kind of BDSM or fetish related interests you can think of.

As far as performing a search on the site goes, it's good to see that Alt.com has again borrowed from it's other successful network sites to provide users with excellent multi-search options, allowing you several ways to find people to start chatting with. The most relevant here is the 'Kink Search', which allows you to look for local singles (or couples) in your area based on the type of fetish that you're interested in. There are also several other search options, some to help you quickly scan profiles (for example, the 'Hot or Not' search) or more advanced filters such as the VIP members search (to look for paying subscribers only) or the main search, that lets you specify parameters such as distance away, gender, age, etc.

There's a busy chatroom area, which allows members to communicate in real time with a bunch of online site members simultaneously. And sticking with group communication, there's even the option to perform a webcam broadcast to an audience on the site. As expected, there's also the more conventional option of one on one communication, where you can instant message (if the person you are speaking with is currently online), send an email or again, utlise the webcam for a private webcam video chat session.

Something that this network offers that we haven't seen used on any other sites that we've reviewed is the option to broadcast your webcam in exchange for 'tips', which essentially means you can be rewarded with free site upgrades and even cash money if you are willing to put yourself 'out there' in front of the alt.com community. So, if you're a bit of an exhibitionist, it's a great way to keep your online dating costs down. You can also write blogs and give advice on areas of alternative lifestyle that you're knowledgable on.

We could go on and on in this review about Alt.com and all of the interesting features and unique aspects that the site contains. But if you've read this far then you're probably interested enough to give it a shot yourself. Would we recommend this? We certainly would. The trust we have in the brand combined with the excellent and professional design of the site make this a must try for anyone with an interest in this niche. There's no doubt that Friend Finder Networks will be advertising this site heavily across it's adult brands and spending money on it elsewhere, and that kind of power usually means lots of members and that's what we're seeing in the cities we've tested. The higher the number of members, the better chance of getting replies and hooking up, so we'd say get yourself registered and run some free searches for your local area before deciding to upgrade or not.

Remember you rubber clad feet lickers, it's worth signing up to a few sites at once in order to find a combination of sites that work best for you in your region. Successfully arranging BDSM meetings takes a bit of effort before you get the reward, so take the time to see which site suits you best. Have fun!

    Alt.com review 2017

    Review:

    Been an active members of the UK BDSM scene for some time now. Love going to events but only recently got into the 'dating site' aspect of it all. Started with Alt.com and im using a couple of more sites now too. It's a good way to keep me satisfied between the big club events and id definitely recommend it to any fellow alt lifestyle followers. Bryan – Wigan, United Kingdom
