BDSM.com

BDSM.com positions itself as a bdsm and bondage site for adventurous singles and couples into or looking to experiment in the BDSM lifestyle. So, if you are looking to connect with people into fetishes, kinks, domination, role-playing, masochism and more, then this might be the site for you. The site is part of the Friendfinder Network and has been running for many years.

BDSM.com's aim is to help you fulfil your BDSM fantasies such as submission,  domination, bondage, spanking, role play, etc. It claims to have millions of members but we could not find anyone in our area when we joined the site. Maybe we were just unlucky but if we were prepared to travel a bit then there were other members available. 

Like other sites within the Friendfinder network, there are lots of features, including webcam chat, ability to upload video, chat rooms and instant messaging. However, also like other Friendfinder sites, to actually get any worthwhile access to features you need to contact other members you need to upgrade to a premium account.

Free Vs Paid Membership

Anyone signing up gets a free account which lets you have a look around the site and get a feel for it as well as use the Member search feature.

However you soon realise that the basic free membership is very restrictive in terms of the amount of information you can view on profiles and you cannot see members' photos. Whilst you can add people to your favourites hot list, you cannot send them a message nor can you read messages. 

So to see more you need to upgrade to one of the two premium membership packages, Silver or Gold.

Both paid memberships give you unrestricted messaging and the ability to message whomever you want. You can also access features like viewing videos, saving searches and searching by distance. 

Summary

Overall, we would say this is not necessarily a bad site, but there are others in our list that offer more rewarding site experiences with greater memberships options.
