Alt.com Review

Alt.com

The alternative dating scene is growing like no other, particularly in the UK. Whether its BDSM or any other form of kinky fun, there's more choice than ever before. Alt.com are one of the best known UK alternative dating sites, so our review team decided to take a look...

Alt.com - How does it work? 

Anyone that's been using dating sites for hooking up knows that the choice out there today is almost too much. The online dating revolution has reached a point where you can find dating sites that provide for pretty much any kink or fetish, no matter how weird or wonderful! The alt lifestyle scene is a huge area because it covers so many different desires, from the subs and doms of the BDSM world right through to specific kinky desires like leather, nylon or even foot fetishes.

Alt.com is a global offering in this area, specialising in BDSM in particular and boasting a huge database of active users. The site is have been around for years and is certainly recognised as one of the top options for the British online alt scene. The site benefits from being part of the AdultFriendFinder (AFF) group of sites, and most likely gains some active users through cross-promotion of the alt dating offering towards their wider database of singles looking for sex.

On that, there are certainly many similarities between Alt.com and its 'sister' brands, such as AdultFriendFinder. The general layout and quick signup process has been used here, presumably because it works well.  There's email verification and a 'captcha' to make sure users on the platform are who they say they are. In fact, the only real difference here is the fact that this site is full of horny kinksters looking to meet like minded fetish freaks...so its a pretty cool, interesting and vibrant place (but definitely not for the faint of heart)!

Let's take a deeper look

The search mechanism on Alt.com is impressive, utilising a variety of search options that essentially give you a few different routes to finding the kind of people you want to hook up with. One of the most site specific search options that our alt dating review team liked was the 'Kink Search'. This option gives you the chance to find singles, or couples, in your area based on the kind of kink they happen to be into. Our reviewers liked that users could join up and then check to see how many people near them were into a certain fetish before deciding on whether to upgrade or not. In the area of fetish and alt dating, kink is king and so being able to filter people based on a mutual appreciation of rope play or bondage, for example, really creates the chance to get the most out of your alternative hookup dating experience.

The search options aren't limited there though. You can also look for BDSM dates using the 'Hot or Not' functionality or several additional advanced search features, or just through the more traditional main search (where you can specify gender, location, age, etc). Alt.com also has an old school chat room area, where members of the site can all get together in real time and talk kinks and fetishes. There is even an option to broadcast (or watch) member webcams on the site, which brings out all kind of exhibitionism. Incidentally, you can gain free site upgrades and even real money from using the webcam features, depending on how much engagement your broadcasts receive!

After deciding to upgrade, you're able to begin communicating with other BDSM singles on Alt.com. The options for reaching out and making contact with hot and horny singles are again varied; you can choose to use quick ice breakers, direct messages, email or private webcam chats with other members who have shown an interest in you.

Our conlusion: How does Alt.com perform and is it worth joining?

All things considered, there's no doubt that if you're into alternative lifestyles then Alt.com could well be your cup of tea. It ticks the boxes of being busy, while also providing its members with relevant features and content that's directly related to the BDSM niche it provides for. Owing to those two positives, we'd rank Alt.com as being right up there with the very best that the British alt dating market has to offer. However, we recommend you to check out some local options as well. FetishChat.co.uk may be a good alternative. 

Please keep in mind that if you're looking to meet someone that's got the same specific fetish or kink as you, then you'll increase your chances of finding regular naughty fun by joining multiple sites. More sites means more people, more interactions and more options for meeting up...enjoy!
