Hookup potential: 1/5 Features: 1/5 Design: 3/5 Content: 3/5
- It’s a pile of shit and a huge scam. Don’t use it. Stay away. Seriously.
- Most (all?) of the attractive female profiles are fake. “Real” females get hundreds of emails a day.
- All the sites seems designed to do is try to upsell cams and other porn sites, even to “gold” members
The Full Story:
Soooo… fire up my browser, punch sexsearch.com into the address bar, and look around for someplace to sign up for an account. Odd that I am not presented with much of an option to sign up straight away as a gold member, rather than having to do a free signup and then upgrade, but I can’t find anywhere obvious that will let me, so I dutifully create my free profile and log in.
I am now presented with this screen. Welcome to 1999 much? Well, still better than AFF‘s, I guess. At least it’s relatively uncluttered and coherent. And it sorta looks like I can do some stuff now, right? Wrong. Pretty much anything I click on with this page takes me to this one. Yay for me, as I’m planning to upgrade so I can check the site out! Would kind of be annoying if I was expecting to do anything crazy with my free profile, like, oh, browse the site, right? Right!
On top of that I keep getting bugged by instant messages from fake profile chicks with names like “sexycute69” and “hornyladyLA”. they want to meet me for sex SO BAD RIGHT NOW! They’re rubbing their little fishy stank places raw just thinking about me! Of course I’m blocking popups, so the site helpfully tells me how I can unblock them so I can MSG_TEH_HOT_CHIX_HOO_WANT_SEX0RZ. So I do! And suddenly every other window opens a popup trying to sell, you know, porn! Fancy! I try to message back all those hot chicks who wanted me a moment ago, and you guessed it: it’s PLZ UPGRD time again. Slicker than a pillowcase made of diarrhea!
Well, regardless. As I have been intending to all along, I upgrade to GOLD membership status, drooling at the thought of all the access to LIVE WEBCAMS and PRIVATE VIDEO CHAT I’m about to enjoy. Unfortunately (and as you’ve almost certainly already guessed) that’s not quite how it works out. First of all it takes AGES before my access is even granted – I’m not sure what kind of vetting process is involved, but I haven’t seen another site yet with one that takes as long. To add to the joy, while I wait I don’t have any more functionality than I did with the free profile.
When my account finally is approved, things don’t improve much. Every “Member Feature” link is an upsell. Every “Chat” link takes me to this page, which is just a bunch of live.jasmin.com webcam feeds. It’s a page I’d have access to for free, anyway! So all I’m really getting for my “exclusive, premium, gold” membership and the $35/month I’m pissing into it is the basic ability to contact people (the few real people who exist) with profiles, and access to some (stale, pedestrian) porn through the “gold room”–a subsection with HORRIBLE “twitchy” navigation, by the way, which is CONSTANTLY trying to upsell me to whatever, in a distracting “blinking neon billboard” sort of way.
Fighting back mounting feelings of disgust and disappointment, I turn to the last feature left: searching for sex. After making a few contacts with some of the site’s “women” (reasons for using the word reservedly will be forthcoming) I find that, predictably, they fall into the same old tired categories. Those categories being:
- Bots/Scripts/Programs/Shills/UNPEOPLE PEOPLE, PEOPLE.
- Shopworn 30s-middleaged swinger chicks with mental issues. Spend any time on adult dating sites and you’ll get to know the type.
- That’s it. That’s all.
The proportion of fake profiles to real seems to be even higher than on uLust, which is saying something. Some of the group 2 and 3 girls I communicated with tell me that they are buried by emails, messages, etc from male site members–some of them getting hundreds a day.
So… yeah. Nothing very much positive to say about this scummy toilet bowl of a website at all, really. Even the porn content’s not that great; certainly not worth the price of admission. I guess if you’re one of the group 2 or 3 females mentioned, you’ll find no shortage of guys here willing to sort you out on short notice? Cold comfort?
The cancellation link (which you’ll be wanting it fairly quickly if you’re masochistic enough to join this site) is sort of hard to find, but at least it wasn’t difficult to unsubscribe once I located it.
