Review: Alt.com

What is Alt.com?

Alt.com is a members only BDSM dating website, which is more likely to enable members to meet genuine would-be daters, due to its paid membership feature.

Do I have to pay to become a member of Alt.com to use the site features?

Yes, you have to pay to become either a ‘Gold’ or ‘Silver’ member (each has different levels of access/perks) of Alt.com, to do anything more than browse the interface of the site. You cannot function as a member of this BDSM dating site, unless you pay a subscription which is payable immediately in full.

Do I have to pay to become a member to browse the site?

Yes, although to register you only have to provide an email address, to then enable greater access to browse the site pages. You can then build you profile at your leisure.

Does the site accept members from all countries?

Yes, Alt.com is an International BDSM dating site, catering for members all over the world.

How secure is the site to protect my privacy and safety?

It is necessary to become a full paid member of Alt.com in order to access nearly all areas of the site, including member profiles. Simply creating a member profile does not enable access to even the basic features. This provides very good protection from scammers and fake people contacting you, as they would have to pay a year’s membership just to do so.

The site has a regular ‘Privacy Policy’ providing the necessary information. There is the option to block another member, and report concerns or offensive advertising material.

What features does Alt.com have?

The site has a number of features, which you would hope from a paid membership BDSM dating site, including: Email feature, instant messaging, flirts, magazine, member groups, blogs, send/receive ‘gifts’, photo’s, videos, live cam shows, chatrooms.

Does the site have a forum?

The site has a feature called ‘Groups’ which acts in the same way as a members forum.

How does the search feature work on this site?

As Alt.com is designed to be a BDSM dating site, it offers the ability to do a basic or advanced search for desirable members. This allows members to narrow down their chosen dates by various specific features.

Does the site have an FAQ section?

No, it doesn’t, however there is an option to ‘contact us’, to pose any questions.

Is the site easy to navigate around?

Providing you are happy to become a full paying member, then you will have access to pretty much every feature (Silver has less feature access than Gold). For paid-up members the site seems easy to navigate around. The tabs are relatively basic, but the sub-tabs make clearer what is possible. If you are not a paying member of the site, you purely have the ability to create a profile of your own, and access the home page of the site.

Summary of the site

The cost to be a member of Alt.com is relatively middle of the road, compared to any dating site, BDSM, or otherwise. It is not a guarantee that paying for membership to access member profiles and contact would-be dates, will enable you access to any different people to those signed up to non-paying sites. Once you’ve paid your subscription, the benefits are much the same as those on sites where you do not have to pay. It is very clear that this is a BDSM dating site, and has features very similar to most dating sites. Its typeface appears welcoming and eye-catching, and classically like a dating website.

This site is a haven for scammers.
They state clearly that they don’t do criminal background checks on members.
Terrible site.
How could you rate it so high?
Do NOT recommend.

I hve been on here off and on for years and have never found a real person yet…I no longer bother

Scam as far as I can tell. They are real people on there, but mostly older couples, and few women really looking. Lots of fake ads. In a day’s membership, despite tons of flirts and messages, I only got a few back. The one female who kept messaging me with sexy come-ons turned out to be a pro (and liar).
