Fetlife is the quintessential community site for kinky people. It bills itself as “Like Facebook, but run by kinksters” and there’s really no better way to describe it. You can interact with people from all over the world who need a little something extra in the bedroom. There are people who are just exploring the world of fetish and kink, as well as veterans who have been major parts of it for years. You get to interact with them all. In fact, don’t be surprised if you find yourself talking to the founder. He’s an active member of the site and always finds time to play around with his friends.
You’re going to be spending the majority of your time on FetLife in the Group Activity section. This is an area that’s updated live for all of the groups that you’ve joined. When you first create you profile, most of your time on Fetlife is going to be dedicated to joining these groups. They’re all created by users, so it’s best to check them out before you throw in with them. Each one will have its own rules that you’ll have to abide. There’s a general hatred of personal ads being posted on them, so make sure you keep your dating ads to your profile.
The FetLife site is easy to use and you’ll never be left wondering where to go. All of the destinations are listed for you on the left hand side of the page. You can also download the app to use on your phone. You’ll have to donate $1, though. It’s to keep the site running and is nowhere near the amount of money that other similar sites charge you. It’s a real community site that’s free to use and only asks you to support it for one or two of the very high tier features.
- Free for the vast majority of features
- Millions of users across the globe
- A true community site for both veterans and newcomers alike
