What is FetLife? A Free Online Dating Site For Kinky Lovers

What is FetLife? If you’re familiar with popular dating sites like Craiglist and OKC, then you’re familiar with fetishes. These are online dating profiles that cater to desires for specific sexual fetishes. It’s kind of like online classifieds, but instead of posting your personal ads, fetlife lists profiles that fall within a particular fetish category, such as “bondage”, “bigger bust”, and so on.

What is FetLife

FetLife is a relatively new online dating site that serves those interested in kinky fetishism, BDSM, and fetlife. On its home page, FetLife states it is “like Facebook, but with kinky folks like you and me.” The word “fet” in the title is a play on words referring to fetish parties, which is what the site is trying to emulate.

To join FetLife, you need to create a profile. You can do this in one of several ways: via a desktop application, through a browser, or via a service such as MySpace Connect. Once you’ve created your profile, you’ll need to choose a unique URL for your profile, which you can paste into a web browser. On the “about me” section, you’ll also want to provide a description of yourself. This may add a third tab to your social media pages (for example, you may add “buddies” at the bottom of your page) so that friends can find you more easily.

There are several types of fetishes on FetLife: natural (aka “common”), medical, crossdresser, fetish, name-based, and personals. Some of the fetishes on FetLife may not be suitable for those who are conservative, religious, or have other established opinions about sex. (The terms “natural”, “medical”, and crossdresser are gender neutral. Name-based fetishes may add to or take away from the experience of dating.)

Once you’ve created your profile, you can begin looking for sexual partners through either a “personals” or “interact” section. In “interact” you can search for potential sexual partners either within your area, or across the Internet. (Fetlife offers a free search feature for its members’ profiles; use it to see if someone has similar interests and physical traits as you do.) You’ll need to verify your email address first if you want to send a friend request in the future; otherwise, your first and second tabs will display “available”.

If you have interests in fetishes other than those on the “married and dating” listing, you can use “special interest groups” to explore new fetishes that fit into your lifestyle more closely. There are also a number of kinks which are considered “crossbreading,” and if you’d prefer not to get married, this is the site for you. (Note: crossbreading is an even more specialized niche than fetishes, so you won’t find any special sexual interests here.) Like most sites of its kind, fetlife is for people looking to explore their sexual interests in general, rather than focusing solely on one small area.

  1. Do not waste anymore time searching for a hookup woman for men, instead use online dating services to help you out.

  2. These are just a few of the benefits that you stand to enjoy from using these smart online editing services.

  3. One reason why this is the case is because of internet dating services that offer online editing services.

  4. If you are an online hookup, then you will find that it is much easier to meet someone new and if you have been on the site longer than a week or so, then you will likely find that you already know quite a bit about singles that you come across.

  5. When women come across a date that they are interested in, they will usually want to discuss things more with the person.
