The Full Story:
This site is an ideal place for gay men. OutPersonals.com serves as an avenue for sex encounters and also a chance to congregate with like-minded persons. OutPersonals has a plethora of good features that should entice you to become a member.
A lot of good-looking men are in here, and they aren’t shy about showcasing their well-sculpted bodies for other men to ogle. If you do not want to be a member, you would not be able to check out all the pictures or profiles in the site. A non-member can check out a few, however. A popular profile could merit special privileges. A profile would show a person’s photo, location, age, etc. The profiles that I have browsed through are actually detailed, revealing what the profile’s owner could give you. There are photos that reveal total nudity, and this is of course a bonus to those who want to see the “equipment” prior to any serious communication or meet up.
So, how could one know if his profile is getting good feedback? Anybody in the site could send winks to show that he likes you. Free chatting is available. As a member, I could click directly on a profile of a chatter to see if he looks like a hunk or a nerd. You get the option to transmit via webcam to somebody in the chatroom. Is there a downloadable messaging program? Yes, OutPersonals.com has included this feature for the convenience of its members. If you go to the Groups, you’ll see the message boards overflowing with saucy details of sordid sex adventures.
Another feature in OutPersonals.com that not all dating sites have is that it has an online magazine. The site’s online magazine has articles penned by subscribers. The range of topics go from serious to outrageous. Trust me, you would not get bored perusing the stories. Naturally, do not expect everything you read to be true. There would always be people getting their kicks from fabricating stories. If you get tired of reading the articles, you could write your own for submission. To those who love to write, this feature is a great bonus.
One of the major sections of the site is the MY Network. This section would help you monitor your contacts. Members could post or share photos if they are so inclined. A buddy could write a testimonial that can be posted in your profile, telling the world that you are his best friend or that you are the best sex partner in your side of the world.
Just like many of its counterparts in the genre, membership at OutPersonals.com comes in Silver and Gold. Members of these categories could see and contact all members. Not only that, the site has advanced search options, special lists of partners, and thousands of videos to see. If you have Gold membership, then you would get the quickest services, an additional email storage, and a host of other features. If you want to be a free member, you would be able to respond to just 1 mail daily, maintain a Hot List, and send/receive instant messages.
Do you want a free trial first? Yes, trial membership is allowed, but you should expect limited means of communication. If you decide to become a member, here are the rounded-off costs: 3 months at $13/month, which is billable for one time at $50. Another is the 12-month period at 7$/month, and this is billable for one time at $120.
The relationship types for this site are as follows: gay, gay couple, bi couple, group, FTM, and MTF.
The search functionalities of OutPersonals.com are excellent. Take a look, they have All Parts of Profile, Keyword Search, Who’s Online, New Members, Who’s Viewed You, Most Popular Man Viewed, Love Dog Matches, and by distance/city/zip. The Love Dog Matches would notify you when somebody matching a description joins the list of members. What more can we gays ask for? The site has a full range of choices for your interests: Erotic Chat, Voyeurism, Exhibition, Fantasies, fetishes, Cross-Dressing, S&M, B&D, Group Sex, and One on One Sex.
Other interesting features of the site are the erotic photo gallery and the online store. The presence of these services makes the site more faceted than many of its competitors.
So, what is the bottom line here? I strongly recommend the site to gays (or even non-gays) who are looking for hookups and even friends. Even if you choose not to be a member, you could get some fun checking out the non-exclusive content of this dating site.
