Our Review

Sure the missionary position's good, couple sex gets the job done, and a little vanilla never killed nobody. But when you’ve done it all, vanilla-wise, doesn’t sex seem repetitive? At BDSM.com, adventurous singles and couples come together to satisfy and realise curiosities and fantasies.

Apart from functions that enable members to interact and organise hookups, BDSM.com also offers a variety of erotic content, and channels where members can ask, express, and present their sexual sides.

With tons of functions at your disposal, it seems like BDSM.com will be able to satisfy your carnal cravings. But can it? Or are you in for the worst case of blue balls? We thoroughly examined every feature and cost of the adult dating site. Read on and find out if you are bound to get down and dirty at BDSM.com.

  • Claims to have over three million members worldwide
  • Records over 170,000 monthly visitors globally
  • Top visitors are mostly from the United States, France, and the United Kingdom
  • Users are mostly males
  • Most users are 25 years old and above

Men outnumber the women by a slight margin; however, this figure seems to be true for singles only. There were quite a lot of profiles run by couples, mostly heterosexual, at BDSM.com

The members of this adult dating site are mostly in the 25-34-year-old age range. Still, members who are from the 18-24 and 35-44 age ranges are not far off. BDSM.com even has members who are 45 years old and above. It seems like age is but a number in the pursuit of hot sex.

And so is the distance, as BDSM.com boasts a global user base. Top visitors of the website come from the United States, France, and the United Kingdom. A smattering populace from Australia, Poland, Germany, Canada, and Finland also make up the website’s users.

Given its ultimate objective, BDSM.com is not your typical niched or regulated website. The member’s marital relationship status, sexual orientation, and preference do not matter: anyone who’s down to spice up their sex life is in here.

Signing Up

BDSM Registration
  • Must be at least 18 years old to sign up
  • 5-10 minutes sign up process
  • No match suggestions upon registration
  • Email verification is required
  • No Facebook registration offered

Although it does not offer the faster alternative to sign up via Facebook, BDSM.com registration is a piece of cake and will only take 10 minutes, tops.

The registration process is divided into five forms. The first will ask you to select your orientation and preference from the multiple choices. At BDSM.com, members can sign up as individuals, with their partner, or with a close group. In turn, they can opt to get matched with singles, couples, or groups. Members of the LGBTQ+ are also very much welcome at BDSM.com.

After clicking “Continue,” you will need to input your date of birth, country, and zip code. The website matches you with users living nearby, so it’s best if your address is accurate. 

Hit “Continue”, and you will then provide your email address, a four to 16-character-long username, and a nominated password that’s at least five characters. After selecting continue, you’re halfway done the registration process.

The second to the last form will need more details, such as your sexual orientation, ethnicity, marital status, and preferred role (dominant, submissive, etc.). If you’re not comfortable sharing such information, you may choose “Prefer not to say” and skip this part.

The last form requires a little creativity. You’ll need to come up with a short profile headline, at least ten characters will do. Make sure you don’t include any contact information in the caption, and you’re good to go. You can also tell others about yourself; some members use this part as an opportunity to voice out what they’re looking for in a sexual partner (or partners). You may or may not complete this part. 

After completing the fifth form, click “Finish” and BDSM.com will email you an activation link. Activate your email first, or else, you can’t even take a peek at the website.

Making Contact

BDSM Contact
  • Sending messages is a premium feature
  • Standard members can respond to Instant Messaging (IM) requests
  • You can join chat rooms for free
  • Save interesting searches to your Hotlist
  • Comes with an option to communicate with live cam models
  • Join blog forums and groups for free

Even with a standard account, you can be on your merry way at BDSM.com. The website generously lets you access the following features for free:

  • Instant Messenger

BDSM.com’s Instant Messenger (IM) service is free, granted that the member you’re trying to contact is also using the platform. Also, the IM function comes with a webcam capability so members can broadcast their live shows if they wish.

  • Chat Rooms

If you’d like to get in touch with several members at once, you can join chat rooms. BDSM.com has several that were organised according to their interest or location. Choose which suits your taste and request to join.

Sure, these functions are great ways to meet other members. However, the only way to establish good relations is via one-on-one conversations. And the only way you can do so is when you upgrade or purchase add-ons.

  • Direct Messages

Paying members are the only ones who can access direct messages. Apart from texts, users can also attach photos, share private albums, send virtual flowers, send a link, and beautify their messages by including some bling or signature.

  • Flirt

Let another member know that you’re interested in them by sending a flirt. This function immediately notifies a user, so if they’re online, there’s a high chance you’re going to interact.

  • Hotlist

Make sure you don’t miss out on a member by keeping their profile on your hotlist. This directory-like feature helps you keep track should you have the time for some one-on-one action.

  • Icebreaker

Make the most out of your pick-up lines by sending it en masse—even while you’re offline. BDSM.com keeps track of your preferences and will only send your icebreakers to users who fit the bill.

Premium members have more freedom and access at BDSM.com. However, it’s nice to note that you can do so much, even with your standard account.

Profile Quality

BDSM Profile
  • Profiles are very detailed
  • Profiles are regulated and checked by the moderators
  • Easy to supply and edit information
  • Upgrade to view member’s profiles
  • View full-sized photos with a premium membership

    Only the premium accounts are allowed to browse member profiles at BDSM.com to safeguard the privacy of members. For good measure, the moderators of BDSM.com also take the time to thoroughly check profiles and videos to make sure that members follow the guidelines. 

    This approval process may take up 24 to 72 hours; the upside is that you already filled out the necessary details of your profile during the registration process. Still, if you plan to customise your profile, it’s time-saving if you do so in one go.

    BDSM.com profiles will include your username, location, and physique. It will also have details on your orientation, marital and parental status, education and occupation, languages you speak, and even your religious affiliation. If you choose to upload more content, there will also be separate tabs for your photos and videos.

    So, if standard members can’t even see another member’s profile, what’s in store for them? Three words: live cam models.

    BDSM.com is home to multiple professional models who regularly broadcast their sexual playfulness. All members, paying and non-paying, can see a model’s profile and their public shows. In exchange for tokens, members can even interact or request for a private showing.

    App

    BDSM Mobile
    • No mobile app available
    • The website can be accessed through mobile browsers
    • The mobile version uses the same colours and looks like the desktop
    • All desktop features present in the mobile version
    • Easy to navigate
    • Features ads

    BDSM.com does not offer a downloadable app, but you can easily access it via your mobile browser. 

    The web design is mobile-responsive, and it does not look as outdated as its desktop counterpart. On mobile, BDSM.com is less wordy as it made use of icons instead of text. 

    The transition from desktop to mobile is also not hard as the mobile version retained the original colour palette. Function-wise, the mobile version of BDSM.com offers the same features that are used and loved by desktop users.

    A minor beef we had with the mobile version is that it contained ads that will sometimes take up space and cover the content. Other than that, browsing BDSM.com on mobile is easy. It offers a reliable alternative for on-the-go members.

    Real Life Review

    "I didn’t purchase a premium account, just tokens, and I’m having the time of my life interacting with live cam models. It gets pricey trying to vie for their attention, but hey, I’m satisfied with the public shows. It gets the job done, so kudos BDSM.com."

    Design & Usability

    BDSM.com sports a simple and straightforward interface. This design comes in handy, especially for the users who may not be as tech-savvy as their counterparts. Still, even if you’re not the master of online dating, it’s easy to satisfy your need for quality adult content. Everywhere you look, you’ll see nude photos, erotic videos, links to adult movies and live shows.

    Black and red are the dominant colours of the website. Frankly, this palette evokes shiny latex, whips, dominance, and passionate lovemaking—the things we think of first when we come across a site that advertises bondage dating and fetish sex.

    On a desktop, BDSM.com looks like it started in the early 2000s and never left; the design is straightforward, but it seems like the defunct MySpace and Friendster websites. For those who are new to the site, the explosion of information may seem overwhelming at first. The silver lining, however, is that all these tabs and links lead you to sections sporting steamy content.

    To access BDSM.com’s paid functions, members can choose from either a Gold or Silver premium membership. Both covers 1, 3, and 12 months, but the cheaper Silver plan only allows primary access. Being a Gold member ensures you get all the functionalities offered to Silver users and more.

    Aside from these monthly deals, BDSM.com also features add-on functions:

    • Standard Contacts

    Allow free members to see your profile and reply to your chat by purchasing standard contacts. This feature covers 1 (USUSD19.90), 3 (USUSD35.90), or 12 months (USUSD99.90) so choose the coverage that best suits your pockets.

    • Search Highlight

    There are millions of members at BDSM.com, so how can you attract all the attention? To make sure you rank higher in searches, purchase the Search Highlight feature. Choose between a 1-month (USUSD9.90) or 3-months (USUSD24.90) coverage.

    • Adult Movies

    Access, stream, or download BDSM-themed pornographic movies for a month (USUSD14.90) or three (USUSD29.90) at BDSM.com.

    • Tokens

    Tokens act as the currency at BDSM.com. With it, you get to interact with your favorite live cam models during their broadcasts. You can also purchase virtual gifts using your tokens. Order 100 (USUSD12), 185 (USUSD20), 500 (USUSD50), or 1000 (USUSD99) tokens and have fun.

    • Fan Club

    There’s no doubt you’ll have a favorite, or two, out of the live cam models at BDSM.com. To show your appreciation, join their fan club and get rewarded with cool perks. Some of the advantages for fan club members are full access to the models pre-recorded shows and custom fan club videos. A one-month fan club membership costs USUSD14.95.

    As for these add-on features, payment is separate from the monthly plans. This flexibility means members can opt to purchase adult movies without subscribing to a monthly plan. It’s the perfect solution, especially for members who may or may not stay long.

    Special Features

    BDSM.com has a lot of features, but these are particularly worth noting:

    Multiple Accounts Linking

    You may have accounts in other Various Inc. adult sites like SwapFinder and Passion.com. Make networking easier by displaying your other profiles with the Multiple Accounts Linking feature. Who knows, some members may recognise you from one of the other Friendfinder Network websites.

    Live Action

    For standard accounts, the Live Action tab is your best friend. Within these tabs, you get to access a directory of Live Models, the live member webcams and top broadcasters, adult chat rooms, and the Instant Messenger function.

    What's Hot

    With the What’s Hot tab, get to know the hottest members, photos, and videos at BDSM.com. If you’re looking for the steamiest BDSM-themed porno-flicks, What’s Hot got them too.
