Summary:

Top notch alternative community you definitely should join.

Introduction:

Alt.com bills itself as “the most dynamic alternative lifestyle community” and we are pleased to report that they do actually live up to everything they promise and a whole lot more. If you’re into anything fetish, this is where you go to meet like-minded people and express your deepest and kinkiest fantasies without worrying about judgment. The girls and guys on this site are risk takers who find vanilla dating boring so they take a walk on the darker side of life and boldly explore the alternative lifestyle and all it has offer. There are tons of members eager to meet you right now.

Registration

If you are registered in BDSM.com you can log in immediately (BDSM.com and Alt.com share the same database). The sign up process is very easy and painless at Alt.com. A simple click on the registration tab leads you to a form where you fill out some personal information like your sex, who you’re interested in meeting, your date of birth, country of residence, zip code and email address. You then choose a username and hit the “have fun” button which leads you to a profile page which is much longer than the first form. The second part of registration requires more in depth answers although most of them are optional. When you’re done filling that out, click the “become a free member” button and you’ll be good to go.

Free Features

There are tons of perks to free membership on Alt. For starters you can browse through the very massive database of profiles and see if you can identify potential mates. When you have identified them, you can then send them instant messages or choose to chat with them and establish a rapport with them (if you have earned Popularity Privileges)

At the free membership level, you can upload up to 200 pictures and build a whole network of friends online and if you’re super popular, you can even utilize the “hotlist” feature which lets you keep tabs on 200 of your favorite members.

We also discovered that free members, or standard members as they are referred to on the site, have access to the interactive Magazine. The magazine is a place for you to post articles or poetry or even post and answer advice questions.

In addition to all those aforementioned perks, free members can also watch live webcam broadcasts and receive up to ten cupid/love dog/dove matches by email. The latter takes the hassle out of searching for compatible mates because the system finds them for you so you don’t have to go searching!

Paid Features

While there is a lot to enjoy at the free membership level, we found that paying for an upgrade offers you even better rewards because as a paid member, you not only get everything the free members do but you also get the things reserved for upgraded members. There are two paid memberships to choose from – silver and gold and what you choose will ultimately be determined by how much you want to spend. Both levels offer different perks and in the interest of full disclosure, you get more at the gold level than the silver level.

Regardless of which level you choose though, your profile will get top billing as a paid member. You’ll appear at the very top of the searches which will increase the number of responses to your ad.

You can also save a ton of time by having 20+ matches emailed to you every single day by your cupid/love dog. The system identifies potential mates for you based on information from your profile and their names and profile links are sent to your inbox every morning. If you like what you see, you can then email that particular member of if you’re running short on time, you can send them a quick wink. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of upgrading your membership at Alt.com.

Price

If you decide to upgrade, you can expect to pay very modest fees that won’t break your bank at all. A silver membership will set you back $14.39 a month for a 3-month membership or if you just want to try it for just one month, it’ll cost you $23.94 at Alt.com. A gold membership on the other hand costs $17.99 a month for a 3-month membership and a free month of membership is included at that pricing level. If you truly want to save money though, we recommend that you go for the 3-month membership at the gold level because you get 1 month added for free when you purchase that package.


Gold Membership
– 1 Month – $35.94
– 3 Months + 1 month FREE – $71.96 ($17.99/month)


Silver Membership
– 1 Month – $23.94
– 3 Months – $43.16 ($14.39/month)

Conclusion

All in all, Alt.com is a top notch site when it comes to fetish dating because it has a ton of members just like you ready to have fun. The site navigation is simple and the registration process is easy. Upgrading definitely gets you your money’s worth so we definitely recommend that you upgrade when you sign up.
