It’s not much fun looking for some gender-bending kinky pleasure online, only to be spammed with emails offering you subscriptions to horse-racing monthly. Is BDSMdate any different? Fetish.com takes a look.
 

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 with BDSMdate as there aren’t any. The UK-based website is plain, clear, simply-designed and 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 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, we 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.
 

Browsing BDSMdate

There is no browse option here.You 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 is 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 on BDSMdate - it mainly relies on you and your wording. 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 basic. Your choice is pretty much limited to 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, but 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. But there is none of that on BDSMdate, and you get a strong sense that the author of the site has no real interest or knowledge in the lifestyle itself. Not very appealing.
 

Interaction on BDSMdate? Not so much

In fact, unless you are lucky enough to find one of the seemingly few members personally appealing, we think you may well find yourself out of luck here. There is nothing else to hold your attention. You can have a few attempts at the rather inadequate search. However, we're unconvinced there are enough people registered on BDSMdate, to give many choices.

Moreover, 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 BDSMdate 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.
 

And the anti-climatic BDSM dating site award goes to...

Overall, we'd give BDSMdate 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.
