Slightly expensive but there is good chance you will find someone who shares that particular fetish with you.


If you’ve got a fetish that the rest of the world would frown upon or you feel you can’t share with anyone for fear of being judged, then we suggest you run to because they have people just like waiting eagerly to meet you. These men and women are not into vanilla dating and sex and they are searching for something more hardcore and more thrilling. They get turned on by darker fetishes like fisting, master/slave relationships, sadism, rubber, spanking, smelling and lots more so if you have a secret kinky sexual fetish, you’ll fit right in with this group.

Alt Dating – Registration


The registration process is one of the easiest we have ever encountered in our history of reviewing dating sites. The registration form is right on the main page of Alt Dating so you don’t have to go searching for it and it asks you for your basic information like your date of birth as well as what you’re searching for. This is also where you get a chance to choose a screen name and password as well as choose your interests from a drop down menu. You will have to supply your email address so an activation link can be sent to you before you can begin enjoying your free membership.

Free Features

As a free member you get to send out a restricted number of emails as well as send and respond to chat requests from like-minded individuals. You can also send and receive winks as well as have a list of all your latest matches delivered to your mailbox every single day.

Free membership at Alt Dating also entitles you to seeing other members’ default photos but those are just teasers to whet your appetite because if you want to see the really naughty pictures you then have to upgrade your membership.

Alt Dating – Member’s Area

Perhaps the best feature of the free membership in our opinion was the ability to add various members to either the friends list or the blocked list. The reality is some people are pests to deal with and if you would rather they don’t bother you, you can simply add them to your blocked list and they won’t be able to see your profile or even contact you.

Alt Dating – Paid Features

Paid Features

Free membership clearly offers a ton of benefits but if you want even more benefits, you can choose to upgrade to gold status where you get everything the free members get and a lot more. Going gold means you then get to send and reply to an unlimited number of emails and winks as well as view other members’ private galleries with more photos than just the teaser default photos. Also, gold members can use text, voice and video chat without restrictions which comes in handy when you’re trying to establish a rapport especially in a master/slave relationship.

To really stand out from the crowd though, we recommend that you consider upgrading your account to VIP status as this is where all the fun happens. The VIP members can do everything the gold members do and members at this level get preferential treatment meaning their profiles get highlighted in all the other members’ mailboxes and search results which in turn leads to a much higher response rate to their personal ads.

As a VIP member, you will have priority listing on and get listed in dedicated featured profiles galleries as well as other members’ home pages which loosely translated means more exposure for you and your ad which only increases your chances of meeting your potential mate even faster.

Additionally, VIP status gives you unlimited access to the support team should you have an issue arise or a question that needs to be addressed immediately.


All this talk about upgrading must have you wondering how much it costs to become a gold or VIP member and we are happy to let you know that it costs $10.83 per month if you choose 1 year gold membership. That’s a fair price given all the perks you get with an upgraded membership and occasionally, the administration gives away free gold and VIP memberships to loyal and active members so be on the lookout for special offers posted all over the site as well as special offers included in members only emails.

Gold Membership *
– 1 Month – $29.95
– 3 Months – $59.95 ($19.98/month)
– 6 Months – $89.95 ($15/month)
– 12 Months – $129.95 ($10.83/month)

VIP Membership *
1 Month VIP add-on – $14.95

* the prices may vary from country to country


Overall, has a lot of positive things going for it and its one site we give two big thumbs up. It covers a ton of sexual fetishes that it doesn’t matter what your particular fetish is, chances are you will find someone who shares that particular fetish with you and you then hook up with them. The free membership level offers some exciting features but if you really want to milk the site for all it’s worth, we recommend upgrading your membership. The fact that the administration occasionally offers free paid memberships is icing on a perfect cake.
