SocialSex is a dating site that truly marches to the beat of a different drummer. Part social network, part hookup site, Social Sex really is different than all the rest.
There appears to be a good quantity of partners looking for other couples and/or singles as well as singles looking for couples. The site features a refreshingly light and cheeky attitude with cute graphics and a relaxed atmosphere. Social Sex features a live ticker, so you can see what others have been up to and view discussion forums. There don’t appear to be any restrictions on user photos and videos and there are plenty of erotic member profile pictures on display. This site, more than most, seems in keeping with the polyamory mindset. Rather than restricting your choices, you can select that you’re looking for a woman, a man, a couple, a lesbian couple and/or a gay couple all simultaneously. While using the site for the purposes of this review, it was heartening to see that many couples left all of their options open for their matches. There seems to be much less of an old-school swinger vibe here than you see on most dating sites.
Like nearly every online dating site, the free membership at Social Sex is extremely limited in its usability. While it will allow you to get a good look at member poly profiles, communication with any other members requires that you purchase a membership, which is priced reasonably. They do allow you enough access that you’ll be making an informed decision, and this is one site which provides a 3-month Hookup Guarantee. If you haven’t managed to meet someone after three months, they will give you another 3 months free (some conditions apply).
Definitely a different sort of online dating site, Social Sex has a lot to offer the polyamorous, from its built-in profile and search choices that recognize the full spectrum of your choices to its membership, who are likely attracted to the sites flexibility and friendly interface. There’s a lot to like here, and that it’s backed by a guarantee takes some to the trepidation out of signing up for a premium membership.
