FetLife.com is probably the most famous site out there for Bondage enthusiasts to meet up—and you might be surprised to find out that we think it’s completely crap.
We were members of FetLife.com years ago, but it’s gone the way of Myspace—it’s old, clunky, and no longer relevant, even though it was revolutionary at the time it came out.
This site was useless for us. Let’s take a look at why we think it’ll be useless for you, too.
Our Results Using FetLife.com For Finding Bondage Dates
During our FetLife.com review, we sent out 200 emails to different women we were hoping to meet up with. Unfortunately, we didn’t hear back from nearly as many of them as we wanted.
In fact, we only heard back from eight women, and we didn’t get the opportunity to go out with any of them. We basically found this site to be worthless as far as getting a date goes.
Compare that sad number of eight with the amount we got on Perversions , which was over 150. That was actually a good site, and we had no issue with getting dates on there.
See Why FetLife.com Is Worthless In Our Opinion: Will You Be Scammed By FetLife.com?
While FetLife.com might have been good a few years ago, this site has gotten pretty obsolete as of late. It’s easy to make everyone think you’re good when you’re the only game in town—but as soon as other fetish sites started cropping up, it was easy to see how redundant FetLife.com really is.

FetLife.com Review: Is FetLife.com a Good Site For Bondage Dating?
We aren’t too positive on FetLife.com, even though a couple of us had used it years ago with better luck. Nowadays, it doesn’t seem like the kind of site that gives us what we want.
Check out Perversions instead, a newer, faster, better-run site for kinksters.
