  • Has around 97 million members worldwide
  • Most members belong to the age group 55 years old and up
  • More than half of MenNation members are mostly from the United States
  • Majority of the members are not looking for serious relationship
  • Around 1 million new members every month

Seems to be a large number, but MenNation claims that it has ninety-seven million members to date. But this statement has a disclaimer that the data provided is for accounts who were last active for the last two years which has an available profile (not deactivated) and has an active email account. The data is calculated and updated every 24 hours. Still, a lot of new members join each month and try the services that MenNation can offer.

Unlike other sites, a lot of members belong to the older age bracket. The reason for this can be that at this point of those members' life, they are already decided and not confused about their sexual orientations. They have fully accepted themselves and not scared of being judged by others. 

This site is very open, and members are confidently sharing explicit contents. Not much about exclusivity. Most of them care about hookups and a lot of sex more than serious relationships.

  • Instant Messenger- this is a faster way of sending a message. You may also invite a friend for a video chat or share videos and feed to each other.

Mennation Profile Quality

MenNation User Profile
  • Member activity is visible on the profile
  • Only premium members can view full profiles
  • Upload a profile photo to attract more members
  • Opt not to see nude photos by changing the settings
  • Real names are not displayed on the profile

    You will see a lot of information on MenNation members' profiles. However, like contacting, you will be needing a premium membership before you can visit any profile.

    One profile photo and an unlimited number of album photos can be uploaded on your account. You can manage it by creating some folders. Profiles with photos get more visitors and have higher chances of meeting someone they like.

    Some people are open-minded, some are just so-so, and there are others who want to be a little conservative. Set your content filter based on your preference: No Nudity, Some Nudity, and Everything. This can also influence the matches and the members search features.

    For security reasons, sensitive personal information is not shared on the profiles. This includes the real full name of members, complete contact details, and address. There also some portion on your profile which you can skip answering. They will be displayed as "question marks." 

    Other portions of your profile are: My Kinks, Compatibility Chart, Testimonials, Bling, Sex Academy Courses, and Top Fans.

    Mennation Real Life Review

    We've been trying different things to spice-up our sex life. It's great that we found MenNation. We have met tons of nice members who helped us satisfy our fantasies. We've enjoy every minute of our membership, and we are not stopping yet. -Brandon & Zach, 34 & 38

    Design and Usability

    MenNation is complete when it comes to features. However, the profile and homepage look a little crowded because everything is there. It would be great to have easy access to these features. But for modern people who love minimalist design, it might look overwhelming to the eyes. Nonetheless, people adapt and gets used to things, and using the site is one of those things that people can learn to like.

    The homepage and profile page is similar to some social media sites like Facebook just with more sub-sections.

    The background and text colour of the site is white and blue and black which make it a little crowded a bit refreshing. 

    You will see some ads on the homepage which promote other dating sites under the same developer.
