Kinky dating website Church of Chains invites you to explore your fetishes through music, video and art. But will it help you find the kinky play partner of your dreams? Fetish.com investigates.
 

Signing up to Church of Chains

The entry page of this kinky dating website quite businesslike: in black, with a lot of text, profile pictures and a featured member to hit your sweet spot. It’s less hardcore than other kinky dating websites, with a focus on lifestyles at the periphery of genuine BDSM.

Punks, Goths and Steam Punk lovers are all named checked, along with fashion, alternative culture and gender-bending. At first sight, it seems that this kinky dating website is more a place for the faint of heart than those who regularly swagger around in their bad girl catsuit.

The process of signing up takes a few minutes to complete. Church of Chains wants to know what you like in the sack, your sexual orientation, your fetishes, kinks and more. If you’re into making music, or you’re an alternative model there’s a box for that, along with your favourite book, sport and inspirational people.

Your stats are mandatory on this kinky dating website, and there’s no entry until you've mentioned your job and salary. Once inside you can visit every profile, area, and photo that sparks your curiosity. Church of Chains makes no membership fees or upgrades.

Privacy trumps on Church of Chains

Reassuringly, this kinky dating website is careful to flag up privacy and online safety. For example, you have to check a box agreeing that you are aware of these issues before entering. It’s not like this lessens the potential risk, but members do signup with an awareness of their personal safety online which is never a bad thing.

The forum, blogs and comments sections of Church of Chains seem to be full of regular hardcore members. However, most seem to be submissive males and dominant mistresses, which sounds like good fun. Moreover, efforts have been made to launch more inclusive conversations and organise events. But from the comments, it seems most of these haven’t worked out.
 

Church of Chains is still building its community

A huge amount of groups on thbis kinky dating website are based on location, which is always exciting because you get to see who’s local. New York City is taking off with 31 members, but London has just five, and one of those is the admin. Groups based on lifestyle interest are always an excellent way of sharing experiences or transforming yourself into something more exotic with the expert guidance of others.

On Church of Chains, interest groups include ‘Halloween’, ‘Tattoos’, ‘Story Writing’ and ‘Pain’. But sadly, joining doesn't bring you any action, as there isn't much chat here at all. Once you’re in, the dashboard on your profile page displays your notifications, links to the sites various areas and a message encouraging you to participate. Navigation is easy and finding a play partner in your local area, or another city is straightforward – as far as the search options go.

If you’re looking for offline or online interaction, the community spirit on Church of Chains is uninspired, and away from the profiles, it’s heavily commercial. Furthermore, there is a major focus on professional mistresses and financial domination. Additionally, there are thinly veiled adverts for professional services on many of the forums and even some membership profiles. You can also link out your profile to a personal webpage, which further facilitates the provision of escort or cam work.

Genuine content vs spam on Church of Chains

The blog area of this kinky dating website overrun by spam for payday loans, links to cam girls and adverts for big fetish parties in Los Angeles. The administrators claim they have 200 items a day to delete, but there needs to be more dedicated curation to wipe out the reams of junk.

It’s hard to get away from the feeling that Church of Chains is veering toward the escort area of BDSM at the expense of the community. Mistressl is a major player on the kinky dating website, her profile is the featured member on the front page, she posted eight of the 12 available videos, and she has a prominent blurb where she scouts for subs on the sites entry page. Members are encouraged to follow the links to her website. Here she recruits subs to run errands and buy her gifts. It may be scintillating for some, but if you’re looking for some play without having to pay, try elsewhere.
