When it comes to alternative sex lifestyle which includes all kinds of fetishes and BDSM, Alt.com is offering you a chance to meet like minded people who share the same love for combining pain and pleasure. There are more than two and a half million members worldwide at this point, with thousands joining weekly.
Alt.com is a relatively young website of this kind, still expanding and making changes. Which is good, because the members help the site become better by offering their suggestions. This is how various new features were added, such as "fetish checklist" which is an incredibly long list of all the existing fetishes (and i mean all, you probably never even heard of half of them) where you can check your preferences and search for people willing to participate or just watch. When trying to find a sex partner for the really kinky stuff, the fetish checklist is incredibly helpful, and it saves you a lot of time you'd just waste having to go through people's profiles. The online community is pretty active as there are blogs and groups you can join and share your experiences. Unfortunately, there isn't a video chat, which is a big downside of this site. You can watch model's hot broadcasts, but you can't actually get to talk to other members via webcam. There is a standard IM chat, which is pretty weak with only a couple of hundred members online. My guess is that the most communication goes through private messages and then switches to other IM's such as MSN or Skype, that allow people to have private one on one conversations. On the plus side, the site focuses on helping you find local sex partners with more than 160 000 local groups you can join, which also saves time when searching for someone to meet in real life. The profiles are pretty detailed, and members don't shy away from posting all kinds of kinky pictures of themselves, so browsing pictures will be a real eye candy. People are pretty friendly and ready to strike up a conversation or help you in any way, so it's easy to make contact and start meeting others.
While there is still a lot of room for improvement on Alt.com, the site is headed in a good direction and hopefully will get even better soon. It's not the best alternative dating site, but it's still one of the most interesting i ever visited.
