The KNKI app is social networking and dating app for all of us that like a bit of spice in the bedroom. It was created by BDSM life-stylers as a way of trying to advance the BDSM community. But does the app live up to the hype? Fetish.com investigates.
 

A kinky dating app small on space

Clocking in at a low 18MB, the KNKI app doesn't take up much space at all. Especially considering the amount of functionality touted by the app.

When you first open this kinky dating app, you'll be greeted with a screen of other users around the world - obviously the home screen once you've signed up! Even though we hadn't set an account yet, we could see members of all shapes, sizes and genders and a wide array of kinks straight away!

There are a number of options for views, filters, and others. However, you need to set up an account to access them. But you can access the Fotofeed, without an account.
 

KNKI app features: the Fotofeed

The Fotofeed feature of this kinky dating app is an Instagram-style feed where users post up photos for other users to comment on. The KNKI app intends for this to be a forum to help normalise kink and give users a sense of confidence, but right now the Fotofeed is just a wall of selfies. For now, it's a pretty unique tool in a kinky dating app.
 

Signing up to the KNKI app

When you open an account with the KNKI app you're asked the typical questions. Age preference, relationship status, and sexual orientation. There are a few options unique to this kinky dating app though: "Type I'm seeking", which is the type of lover I'm seeking - Dominant, Slave, Top etc. My "Lifestyle Role", which of those types I am. Additionally, you'll need to include height and build (Sub, Master, 5"7' and Athletic, for those wondering!).

Interestingly, while the gender option has Male, Female and Other, the sexual orientation option also has Queer, Pan and Other on top of the regular straight/bi/gay options. The presence of these options gives a good feel for how inclusive the KNKI app would like their app to be.
 

Navigating the KNKI app

The home screen of this kinky dating app is easy to navigate. Members' photos are displayed in a collage format, like IGs search function. The views are on the top-left and filters on the top right. But even though we'd placed our profile with the what we're looking for with preferences, the home screen hadn't updated our filters with this, apart from age group. As a result, we had to go through the filters and update them.

Shout-Out Loud on the KNKI app

When it comes to profiles, there are a few interesting things to note about this kinky dating app. We liked the way the profile screen is laid out. Above the main photo on the profile is the person's stats from their profile, as well as links to Message, Follow, Shout-Out and Unlock (more about that in a mo). Below that is their status, their photo gallery, and their "About me". 'Message' and 'Follow' do the obvious. Shout-Out is a way of broadcasting someone's profile to your users so that they can follow them or check them out.

Additionally, on the KNKI app, you can also put photos on your profile that regular users can't view - unless you unlock those photos for that user. Furthermore, you can unlock specific photos to specific users, which is a great idea if you have photos tailored to specific kinks!
 

What's the deal with KNKI app's user base?

As for the user base of this kinky dating app, it seems wildly varied. From the many profiles we've checked out, and few people we've messaged, the user base seems like 95% real users - with the odd advertising bot here and there. What we would note is that even though the user base is rather small, it is very active. Most profiles' longest time before login was about three days. The app KNKI seems to be taking off so now's a good time to jump on - and get kinky!
