Registration begins with a one-page form to collect basic information such your sexual orientation, the sexual orientation of members you are looking to meet, your intent for using the site – ranging from online fun to dating – location, and birth date. From the one pager you’ll also create a username and password, and need to enter an email address to confirm your account. After registering and confirming your account via email you’ll be prompted to choose a subscription package, but you can bypass this by clicking on the top menu and begin exploring the site for free. Upon entering the site you’ll have 14% of your profile filled out from the registration questions and can choose to fill out the remaining section, which go into more detail about who you are and who you are looking to meet.
The home page is customised to you and showcases recent member activity, like who has checked out your profile, just registered, or sent you a message. It also features a list of members you have recently viewed. Beyond the homepage, the site is divided into six sections, some for discovering new members, others for communicating, and a properly titled R-Rated section for sexual inspiration.
Members discover others to communicate with using the Hookup or Search sections. The Hookup section is a ‘hot or not’ game that showcases one profile at a time and allows you to select ‘yes’, ‘skip’, or ‘no’. In this section you can see the selected member’s main profile picture, their age, who they are looking to meet, and a ‘what you should know about me’ blurb that is auto-generated from their profile information. The Search section features a list of member profiles based on a basic search, which you can add more filters to. Results can be sorted by nearest, last online, or newest, and from the search results page you can directly click on a member’s username to see their full profile, ‘fave’ them, send them a message, or send them a flirt. Everyone you fave with be saved in the Fave section and every message string will be saved in your Messages section.
Clicking on another profile will show you four sections: ‘About Her’, ‘She’s Looking For’, ‘Her Photos’, and ‘About the Two of You’. The latter section is especially interesting as it shows you detailed information about your social and sexual compatibility. Through the use of charts and graphs you can discover how compatible you are ‘Between the Sheets’ and ‘On the Streets’.
If browsing is more your forte, explore the Live Chat or R-Rated sections. The Live Chat section lists both pornstars and members on the site who are hosting live webcams. Clicking on any video opens a new window, with the chat in full focus, HD-quality. The R-Rated section hosts exclusive, explicit videos that you can browse and view without leaving the site.
