Online dating can be frustrating when you're a deviant; it's hard to tell from someone's carefully-angled holiday photos whether they'll freak out the first time you ask them to choke you. Fetishlovers.com promises an end to that problem, with a crowd of genuine, er, fetish lovers from around the world for you to meet. The site also offers a chat function, forums and links to other fetish sites.
In terms of looks, fetishlovers.com is a slick and impressive dating site; it uses a cute (maybe too cute) cover picture of a member and a clean, easy-to-use red and black layout. Signing up for a profile is quick and easy, although filling it out completely can be more time-consuming.

Kinky Dating Reviews: Fetishlovers.com


Once you've created an account, it's time to start looking for people who share your interests. To simplify the process, members are listed along with the time in minutes it could take you to reach them – a pretty nifty little feature reminiscent of Grindr, Tinder and other location-based hookup apps. The chat rooms are active and welcoming as far as they go; however, a lot of the more kinky links on the homepage promise chat opportunities which do not materialise immediately. Instead, users are taken to other websites which in turn involve yet another signup – not exactly the kind of sexy spontaneous fun most of us are after.

So far, Fetishlovers is all free


So far, this is all free – although the signup page does send you straight to the subscription page -- but what do you get if you want to become a paying member? Like a lot of dating sites, fetishlovers.com gives access to unlimited messages and flirts once you've bought a membership. You'll also be able to see full-sized photos instead of the smaller images on other members' profiles; just as importantly, you'll be able to tell who's been viewing your profile. You'll also get a free membership to cam site Alt Cams, which seems to be Fetishlovers.com's major advertiser.
As well as the usual stuff about your appearance, eye colour (useful on a site where your profile photo might be of your bum), zodiac sign and so on, your profile lets you explain your current living arrangements, your BDSM preferences and what you do for a living. Members are as vague or as detailed as they want to be, but most people are willing to loosen up a bit when they trust and recognise you as a regular visitor. Play partners can be found from the homepage using four search options: Near Me, New Members, All Members or Featured Members. Given that the site's been running for a few years now, the New Members search is a good way to find people whose profiles are still likely to be active.

Social networking is not a major part of the Fetishlovers experience


Hook-up requests on profiles are common, with a huge proportion of members just looking for fun. Many others mention having just got out of a long term relationship and a significant number want a friends with benefits arrangement. Social networking is not a major part of the fetishlovers.com experience, but if you’re hoping to get your fetish out during some kinky no-strings sex then you’ll be spoilt for choice. Although you can add users as friends, choose to like their profile and send a flirt, organised community building activities are a bit thin on the ground. This means you will either have to trawl through profiles or create your own chat room for the best chance of attracting people who are kinky in your kind of way.
You’re amongst users who share your BDSM passions, so don’t be shy in sending messages. No one is scared of perverts on a fetish dating site – it’s practically a prerequisite. Without the anxiety that face-to-face interaction can cause, being proactive on a kinky dating site is far less daunting than in real life. When another user is just your type, ask for what you want and see if you connect. Just remember that, like plenty of mainstream dating sites, the response rate amongst men is far higher than women, so you’ll probably need to be slightly more persistent with the girls initially.
