Swinger communities all over the globe are moving online to enable their members to arrange swinging meets easier. SDC are one of the largest sites helping members to meet couples online, but how do they compare with the other swinger dating options out there? Our reviewers felt it was time to try them out...
SDC.com (short for SwingersDateClub) provides a place for swingers to meet online in several different countries across Europe and the USA, with localised sites in many languages. The company started out in the Netherlands but over the last 18 years has embraced the rise of online sex dating and developed into a major swinging hub. The website is available on all devices and even offers a mobile app for both android devices and iphones.
Signing up takes a little longer than other swinger sites but that's not necessarily a bad thing, as the extra couple of minutes is spent adding some basic info to your profile and identifying the category of swingers that you're joining SDC to find. You also have to verify you're email, to prove you are who you claim to be.
The members area home page is basically a dashboard with links to searches, swinger blogs with member generated advice and stories, competitions (one that immediately jumped out was the 'No knickers photo contest'), sex parties, community groups, swinger vacations, member videos and much more. It was instantly clear to our SDC reviewers that this is not a minimalistic dating site but a swinger hub from which you can plan all of your swinging activity, online and offline.
The search features on Swingers Date Club are excellent, from being able to see who is online at the same time to a more advanced search system that lets you to specify exactly what you're looking for in a swinging partnership. Helpful filters include the ability to choose couples or singles that are interested in differing levels of soft swap – such as just watching sexual activity in the same room, limited touching or oral sex – right through to full partner swap swingers. You can also choose whether you want to meet a couple (gay, lesbian, straight or bisexual) or an individual homosexual, lesbian or horny straight man or woman. You can look for SDC members based on whether they pay to use the hookup site or not, specific fetishes, age ranges and even search for members who have a birthday on the same day as you're looking for swingers online! Best of all, the detailed search functionality on SDC is free, allowing you to find out how many local swingers are in your area without having to cough up any cash first.
Another feature that our review team liked was the validation feature. This helps to counter the issue of non-genuine profiles, one of the main frustrations of online hook up dating, by allowing members to verify other members to show that they are real people looking for sex. The idea is simple; after you meet people for swinging fun you mark them as 'verified', so future swinging matches can be sure that they are active on the site and not time wasters. It's a great idea that could be used more, not just for no strings hook ups, but for all areas of online dating.
In terms of payment, some functionality is limited until you upgrade, which was to be expected. You can browse through profiles but you're limited to seeing one image, and can send emails but not read replies from the couples or singles that you're interested in, without upgrading. Moreover, you can't use the 'Speed Dating' feature or properly participate in the swinger chatrooms using the free trial membership. You also can't be added to the guest list for upcoming swinger sex parties without being a full member on Swingers Date Club (SDC.com).
Overall, our review team were pleasantly surprised with SDC. The site isn't the most well-known or flashy but certainly has a lot of great features and genuinely seems to care about it's online swinging community. Things like having a travel company affiliation that let's you sign up for swingers cruises and a sexual health section with the phone number of a medical advisor are examples of SDC going the extra mile and providing that more rounded, extra value experience for it's swinging couples. We'd certainly recommend a look to see who's looking for threesomes, couple swaps or orgies in your area.
Remember kinky swinging couples, the more online swing communities that you're part of, the better your chances of arranging the perfect swing dates. Sharing your loved one is a big step and it's better to broaden your horizons when picking the partners for your couple swap/ wife swap. More memberships means more choice, simple as that! Enjoy!
