Match BDSM

MatchBDSM is a site that has been in the industry as long as 2015, and because it has a few years under its belt, they know what works for alternative hookup sites and what doesn’t. It is efficiently designed with elaborate search features and algorithms that help you find exactly what you’re looking for without first having to browse through countless profiles that don’t suit your interests.

Pros of MatchBDSM

  • LGBT and polyamory positive community
  • Pleasant and aesthetically pleasing website layout
  • Real time messaging updates that show when members are typing
  • Limited three-day trial so you can test it out before you buy

Cons of MatchBDSM

  • The site is fully public, meaning you run the risk of anyone on the internet being able to find your profile in full
  • Full features are only available to paid users of the site

Sign-up Process

The sign-up process is among the simpler of the bunch. You need to enter your basic information as you would on any other dating website, BDSM or otherwise, but after that, you are free to begin browsing the site. You do have the chance to spend a little extra time by inputting things about yourself and your desires to flesh out a profile that helps other members get an idea of who you are, so you have a better chance of being contacted by someone who is compatible with you.

Using the Site

One of the main problems with dating websites is the influx of spam and fraud accounts that seem to sometimes be more populous than actual accounts. MatchBDSM has moderators that take the job of weeding and flushing out such accounts seriously, so you are less likely to have your time wasted. One of the ways that they do this is by verifying each member and even verifying each picture that the members upload. After they have been approved, there is a little check mark that appears by them, so you can be sure you are talking to a real person. It has a group chat feature that will even allow you to talk to more than one person at a time. You can send pictures, videos, messages and even have live cam chats.

Privacy and Security

Perhaps the biggest drawback of this site is the fact that it is not very exclusive. What this means is that your profile is publicly available in full, and anyone, regardless of whether or not they are a member, can pull up and access your profile. This could be problematic for those who understandably want discretion when using such a site, especially because your photos have to be verified.

Final Thoughts

Overall, MatchBDSM is a decent site for those looking to get involved with the BDSM kink community. The features are limited if you don’t pay full price for them, and privacy is a main concern when using the page. Outside of these two issues, it could be a good place to start when dabbling in the online kink community.
