For this BDSMdate.co.uk review, I'll be comparing it with experiences I've had on other kinky dating sites and filling you in on what I think at the end. I’ve visited my fair share of kinky websites over the years. It’s actually surprising how much they can vary in content, feel and looks. The standard website nowadays bombards you with generic porn site adverts from the moment you enter it. Leaving you wondering just how many 3rd party companies are going to end up with your data. It’s not much fun looking for some gender-bending kinky pleasure, only to be spammed with emails offering you subscriptions to horse-racing monthly.

Kinky Dating Sites


The BDSMdate.co.uk Review


Enter a somewhat different website - bdsmdate.co.uk - a throwback to a simpler era.


We all do it, type in the URL and sit back, patiently waiting for all the adverts to load. Well, you won’t have to wait long here as there aren’t any. The UK-based website is plain, clear, simply-designed and honestly totally devoid of any incentives to sign up or pay for anything, let alone feature any click bait for other sites. Even the membership is totally free.

Signing up for bdsmdate.co.uk is easy and takes minutes.


Enter your basic username and email/password combination. Wait for the almost-instant confirmation link that is sent out to you. Easy as pie so far - so where’s the catch? Well, I would say that the best and the worst points of the site are, in fact, the same thing..it is basic. In all ways.

The initial page presents you with various photos of members of all ages, sizes, and shapes. Not the typical perfectly primed and plumped pornstars that make you feel inferior from the moment you load the site. Pretty good start? The only downside is that to find other members, you will have to work a bit harder.

There is no browse option here...


kinky-dating-reviews-bdsmdate-02You have the chance to set up a profile of course. The usual basic information is required. Along with the option to add photos and personal sexual preferences. Here, your choice of phrases and preferences are rather important. If you don’t have a good standard of English, find it hard to express yourself, or are unsure what you are looking for, it won’t do you any favours. There are very few pre-defined options - it mainly relies on you and your wording. So if you expect to choose from a list of explicit kinks, you’ll be disappointed. Every preference, from gender-bending fun to dominating Daddies, need to be typed up manually on your profile page.

Looking for anything other than height and weight? You might be out of luck...


There is a search engine to the right of the screen and once again, it’s... you guessed it, basic. While you may stand a chance if your particular penchant is for a male between a certain age and height who enjoys spanking. You might be hard pushed to find a gender-bending couple who are looking for a full time pony-girl. In fact it does feel that the person who wrote the search engine went to an awful lot of trouble about your ideal partners' weight and height- that they lost interest by the time it came to checking the ‘kink’ boxes. Thus giving you a not-so-impressive choice of: bondage, spanking, torture, sex, pissing, fetish, fisting or scat. It’s now beginning to feel like a rather cheap site that has a few ‘rude’ words thrown up on it without any real thought for people's real needs.

Quick and easy, not so warm and welcoming...


By now, the initial positive feelings of ‘easy and quick to use’, were rapidly being replaced by ‘limited, immature and lacking content’. For most people interested in this lifestyle, the one thing guaranteed to be a total turn-off are people who pretend to be something they aren’t. And for me, that extends to websites. A BDSM website should make people feel welcome and comfortable. It should contain basic information for new users and perhaps the standard but essential warning about meeting people. A proper BDSM website should give lifestyle choices and a summary of terms used, to ensure you don’t get your kinky wires crossed. There is none of that here and you get a very strong sense that the author of the site has no real interest or knowledge in the lifestyle itself. Not very appealing.

Interaction? Not so much...


In fact, unless you are lucky enough to find one of the seemingly few members personally appealing, I think you may well find yourself out of luck here. There is simply nothing else to hold your attention. You can have a few attempts at the rather inadequate search. However, I’m unconvinced there are enough people registered to the site, to give many choices. There is no forum. No erotic articles to hold your interest. And no ‘happily-ever-after’ success stories of members who have met up. It honestly feels that the owners of this site are trying to give it some short-term content before possibly selling the domain name on at a later date. Or maybe they started something then just lost interest in it.

Are you looking for a bit more clarification about certain terms? Want to know how a ‘bottom’ is different to a ‘sub’, curious what gender-bending really is? Jog on my friend, you won’t find any of that information here. Here you’re on your own. The grammar on the site is also disappointing and delving a little further. I see that the site was registered in Poland, which may explain a lot.

And the Anti-Climatic BDSM Dating Site Award goes to....


Overall, I'd give bdsmdate.co.uk a score of 5 out of 10. The points given would be based on the fact that it has quick loading pages and doesn't drown you in spam. However, it needs a lot more development to make it a potentially worthwhile and secure environment for new members.

To sum up, it has a pleasing initial impression to a huge anti-climax…not something anyone would want from a BDSM dating site.
