For some, fetish and kink can be a dark world of mysterious dungeons filled with latex covered dominatrixes, unidentified objects going into places you never thought possible and people lining up to get trampled on. We could go on, but you should really just go have a look around for yourself. And while this other stuff may all be part of the fun there’s more to it than all that. A lot more.
Our alternative lifestyle can only exist because of one thing: trust. A deep and honest truth. The backbone of a healthy community is always trust. An open mind can see the truth and discover it happily. Nothing is taboo here, everything is safe to talk about and share- consensually of course. That’s the other part of trust. Consent and the safety that comes with it.
Today dating is all about left and right swipes, quick fixes and endless questions or dick pics. On Fetish.com we want to slow things down a bit. Get to know you and your kinks. Allow you to express yourself in all your kinktastic glory so you can find the right person or people in a safe place with no fear of judgement.
It all started back in 2004, with a band of German brothers: David, Julius and Robby. The brothers saw a hole that needed filling - free dating websites were hard to come by back then. So they created a dating community called Poppen.de The first year saw 100,000 members register, proving to the brothers they were on the right track. As popularity grew so did the site, adding new features and different types of paid memberships, but always keeping the basis of a free dating site.
Five years later Poppen.de was booming as one of the busiest websites in Germany. As the company grew so did their reach into other markets and partner sites. New features and benefits grew as well. Soon members were able to enjoy text and video chat. As numbers continued to rise they started working on new ways to process large amounts of incoming data and ensure security for their members. By 2012 Poppen reached three million users! At this point smartphones had taken over, so naturally member benefits expanded to versions for mobile devices.
And now in 2017, the brand spanking new version of Fetish.com is strutting its kinky stuff for all the world to see.
