What is SDC?
When you cover adult dating you can't ignore the swingers sector, an area of online hookups that is growing at a furious rate every week. And when you're reviewing swingers dating sites, you simply have to review Swingers Date Club, an adult site that's believed by many to be a global leader in the niche. As far as it's presence in the UK is concerned, it ranks highly among swinger site options and that's what got our attention. The company behind SDC is actually Dutch and has been going for almost two decades, expanding into new countries and growing fast. The SDC.com site works well on any device and if you're into apps, you can also download it for iPhone or Android.
The sign up process on SDC is a bit longer than most other swinger dating websites but it's worth remembering that as you answer the questions and complete the form, you're automatically adding information to your profile that can help boost your chances of arranging meetings. After all, there's nothing enticing about an empty dating profile. Once you're inside the main site area, there's a lot going on. The home page has a tiled layout with all kinds of updates, while the left hand side has the main navigation area and links to different parts of the site. There are the usual things you expect to see along with a whole bunch of other areas that you don't tend to see on other dating sites, swinger or otherwise.
The options available
The primary options are things like the search area, where you can look for couples or individuals that are actively seeking sexy swingers for threesomes or group fun. There's a wide array of filters, all free to apply, letting you search your local swinging community based on whether they're full SDC members (or on a free trial), their fetishes, age, distance away, etc. There's also your incoming message box, an instant messaging (and “Who's online”) feature for more instantaneous communication, and a link to your profile that lets you add images, videos and text about what you're looking for and how experienced you are in the alternative lifestyle world.
Some of the more interesting areas of the site include access to Videos (you have a choice of accessing the user generated video library or diving into their 'Voyeur' mode, where you can watch other members or even stream yourself live...if that's your thing!) and a retro style Chat Room where you can indulge in naughty sex chat with several people at once. Furthermore, there are contests, swinger advice blogs, a swingers' community area, a speed dating tab and best of all, a large section devoted to upcoming sex parties and swinger travel hot spots.
With all these options it's easy to get swept away on the wave of kinky fun that's available through SwingersDateClub, but one element our review team felt we should highlight was the sensible side of the site. Most online hookup sites will ask you to verify your email address, but little more is done to make sure you are who you say you are. When it comes to the swing lifestyle, so much is based on trust. After all, it's not just yourself you have to think about, your partner might well be involved too. For that reason, we were pleased to see multiple methods to validate your profile. For example, after meeting up with a couple on the site, they can indicate that you are who you claim to be and give you a stamp of approval that helps setting up future swinging arrangements. On top of this, SDC has a sexual health page, promoting safe sex along with the phone number of a sexual health advisor for any questions or concerns you may have about the risks involved with the swing lifestyle.
There's no doubt that SDC is a site that is growing fast in the UK, making it an ideal place to set up your swinging fun. Whether you're a wife swapper, threesome hunter or orgy lover, the site has everything you could possibly need to get going. All you have to do now is get involved!
Remember, when it comes to swinging or dogging, your chances of finding vibrant communities in your local area directly depend on how many online options you're giving yourself. Put simply, the more swinging websites you join, the better your chances of finding sex parties and meeting couples in your area. A bit of effort can go a long way, so don't be shy. Play safe!
