Alt.com - Home Page

Company Line:

Alt.com is the world's largest BDSM & Alternative Lifestyle Personals.  We offer a supportive alternative lifestyle community with anonymous email, chat, and instant messaging.  Alt.com has Millions of profiles with sexy photos!

Overview:

Alt.com is the sister site of Adult FriendFinder and offers up casual or monogomous sex with an edge.  If you need more kink than members at other adult dating sites are looking for you should click on over to Alt.com where things get extremely wild!  With over 3.5 million members Alt.com is the premier place to meet singles and couples into the BDSM and alternative sex. 

At Alt.com you can create your profile absolutely free.  Free members can use chat rooms, view web cams, and contact full members that have activated the free contact feature.  When full members (those that have paid) contact you there will be no charge for you to respond.  If you choose to pay for a full membership you can, in turn, contact any paid or non-paid member freely as often as you'd like.

Paid memberships are available in two tiers.  The highest tier, Gold, provides you with access to every single feature and function on the site.  In addition your profile will appear higher in other member's search results.  Silver members have the use of most features but some advanced search options are restricted.  Memberships are available for 4 months or 18 months.  At the 4 month gold level you will pay about $15.30/month and for 18 months you will pay $8.50/month.  Other features such as having your profile placed at the top of search results, and the ability for free members to contact you are available for a modest fee.

Alt.com offers pretty well the same features as Adult FriendFinder which include, chat rooms, member webcam feeds, groups, blogs, and an E-zine.

Special Features:

Chat rooms are flash based, well laid out, and easy to use.  Rooms are available by topic such as Polyamory, DOM, Master & Slave, Gallery, and by location, such as Western Canada or California.  The rooms are active 24/7 and there is no limit on the number of people that can be present in any one room.

There are many exhibitionists over at Alt.com.  Members offer free web cam shows that are available to anyone and everyone.  Feeds are categoried by gender and include female, male, transexual, and a variety of couples combinations. 

The E-zine has articles from a variety of industry experts and amateurs too.  In fact, you can write your own E-zine as an Alt.com member.

Profiles:

Alt.com is all about twisted fetishes and the profile fields prove it.  In addition to the usual physical and other attributes this adult dating site provides a huge four page fetish checklist.  There are exactly, assuming I counted right, 88 different fetishes to fill in.  Each fetish has 4 to 6 different drop down selection menus making for an extremely detailed BDSM profile.  A few examples of fetishes include chains, anal sex, humiliation, masks, pinching, sex during menstration, spanking, cuckhold, and denim; are you getting the idea?  So then for anal sex fetish, for example, you can indicate whether and how much you like to give, receive, and/or watch the sexual act.

Alt.com allows you to post very nasty photos, and I'm not kidding.  If it's legal you may post it on your profile.  You may post up to 10 photos on your profile, 1 of which must be your primary photo and will appear in other member search results.

There are, of course, sections for writing about who you are and who or what you are looking for.  In addition you can check off what type of relationship and activities you are interested in; women or couples, and oral sex or BDSM, for example.

For a more complete profile you may optionally fill in the purity test and personality profile.

If you're feeling particularly bold you may also produce and add voice and video introductions to your profile.

Searching:

The search interface is great if you have a full membership,  Gold members may search on virtually any criteria they choose.  Silver members can choose from a lot of options but not as many as gold members get.  This simply means that you may have to browse through many more profiles to find compatible mates.

Like Adult FriendFinder, Alt.com suffers somewhat from spammers.  There area  great deal of real and sincere people out there, but keep you eye out for girls that look like supermodels are say they are into anal gang bangs with men over 50.

Alt.com tries to stay on top of this but bad profiles often take weeks or months to be taken down once Admnistration is notified.

The Experience:

My experience on Alt.com was excellent overall.  People were extremely friendly and eager to communicate, particularly in chat rooms.  Keep in mind that there are many more single men than single women on the site.  You will have work at it before you meet anybody, but this isn't unlike any other site out there.  I suggest you write to women without profile photos.  While you won't get an idea of what they look like until later at least you won't be competing with hundreds or thousands of other men.  I had a lot of fun on Alt.com and hooked up a couple of times.  Unfortunately I'm a little bit vanilla for most members and will probably stick with some of the more mundane adult dating sites.

Pros:

  • Specialty site for kinky sex and fetishes
  • Tons of profiles
  • Loaded with featues
  • Many features including chat and web cams available to free members

Cons:

  • Extra charges for some features
  • Mimimum membership commitment is 4 months
  • Many fake members

The Skinny:

Alt.com is the best adult personals site around if you have fetishes you need fufilled.  There are tons of singles and couples available to choose from and many features available for free members.  Membership costs are very reasonable (actually far less than AFF) but there is a minimum 4 month commitment.  You will come accross some spammers on Alt.com, but the profiles are generally pretty easy to spot.  Hooking up did take some time and effort but no more so than other adult dating sites.  Alt.com adult dating is definately worth while if you're looking to take a walk on the wild side.  

Demo: can't initiate contact with most other members

Cost: US$10-15/month for gold memberships
