FetLife is known universally within kink circles, but even if you don't yet have a FetLife login, is it worth bridging the gap between a social networking site and the hookup scene for those of us who prefer that untrodden road to be downright dirty? In the spirit of serving our vision to be the most trusted BDSM and Fetish community, our very own Victoria Blisse asks, what is FetLife really like?

 

What is FetLife?

Founded in 2008, www.FetLife.com has been serving the kink community for over ten years, and describes itself as a social network rather than a dating site. But, is the fusion of social media and kink a beautiful place to find other kinksters? Let's find out.   
 

FetLife Visual Appeal | 50 Shades of Dark

FetLife goes all out for the dark colours of BDSM, black and red with a few shades of grey.  It's undeniable you're not just browsing vanilla social media when you try a FetLife login. There are lots of porn ads too, only small but often explicit.  The FetLife app uses the same colours and has a very similar layout. However, on the app, it's much more streamlined for use on mobile phones. 
 

FetLife Navigation and User Feel | Lost in Links

It's straightforward to sign up for the FetLife app or online. You have lots of genders, sexual orientations and fetish roles to choose from, so everyone is welcome. There is a security feature that means before you can complete your first FetLife login you need to give a phone number so they can send you a code to complete registration, which means you can only have one account per email, making it harder for people to create fake accounts. 

When you've registered on the FetLife app, you can fill in your profile with a photo and complete the 'about me' information including what you're looking for. 

A FetLife login works like changing your status on Facebook or adding a new pin on Pinterest, but if enough people like or comment on your post it could end up on the Kinky & Popular page making you a 'fetlebrity', at least for a short while. 

Finding your way around after a FetLife login can take a bit of time, but you can enjoy the site without leaving your homepage once you make a few friends as all their content will show up in your feed. Finding people to 'friend' can be done by listing your fetishes and finding who else is into them or joining groups and chatting to other users there.

FetLife Community Feel | Kinksters Unite

What is FetLife but a place for kinksters to meet online? That is one of its principal purposes. There are loads of ways to connect to others on the FetLife app. Just like Facebook, there's a status box where you can update your status. You can comment on another member's content, be it their writing or photo/video. Be aware that comments are public, and once you post, it stays there forever.  Comments cannot be deleted, you have been warned!

There are lots of groups for all kinds of fetishes, and you can join as many of these as you like and connect with other people into anything from hair pulling to macrophilia.  Also, like Fetish.com you can add kinks and fetishes to your profile - not only does this show visitors to your profile what you're into, it also allows you to browse others into the same kinks as you.

Is FetLife Free? Yes, Well, Sort of...

The best way to get dates is to know lots of people who are into the same things as you. Like Fetish.com, FetLife and the FetLife app is free to join, although there's an inexpensive membership package at $5 a month that helps support the site and comes with a few extra perks.  You can watch videos, go further back in your news feed, see all photos and writings as soon as their uploaded and customise your friend feed however you like.

You can't pay with credit cards or bank transfer, though, which makes the process a little more involved - this is so that FetLife can keep discussing subjects that credit card providers and banks don't allow.  FetLife is not expensive at all, but you can use the FetLife app effectively without spending a single dime. 

 

FetLife Help and FAQ

The community guidelines and FAQ's are extensive. They cover every aspect that a fetish community might face including tough questions on stalking and fearing for your life.  

But what is FetLife doing about support? You need to follow the staff and leave them a message if you have a problem, which is my most significant area of concern. On John Baku’s profile (the founder), it says that the fastest way to get hold of them is to send an email to the support(at)fetlife.com address. Responses to emails are slow or never come.  

It is disappointing that a vibrant community such as FetLife lacks the proper support structure. If safety is such a key feature, then support should be quick to respond.
 

FetLife Review Final Conclusion | More Community than Dating

What is FetLife?  An amalgam of a porn site, kink community and BDSM dating site. It can depend on who you are and what you're looking for as to if you find it useful or not.
