The Full Story:
SexyAds.com is not exactly a new site, as it was first set up in 1997, but the fact is that it has changed significantly since it first went live. The first notable addition was the inclusion of voice ads in the profiles. These are now given free to all customers based in the US while those outside this country have to pay international dialing rates (with no extra charges coming from the site). Another significant feature is that some limits have been imposed on the site’s free members in terms of their ability to access profiles of the site’s members. Non-paying members can view only 12 other profiles every 24 hours.
SexyAds.com is an adult dating website that is good both for seeking hookups and for just meeting new friends. It has always been my opinion that for a dating site to succeed its contact options have to be direct and fast. This site has internal private mail, and a feature called “send someone a tickle” which I think is their online equivalent of flirting. While I personally do not find this feature cute, I am sure that many others would.
Besides the usual chat rooms, the site also offers voice-chat and the ability to “private call.” The voice-chat is integrated with their IM interface, and is really easy to use.
Are you fond of participating and reading forums? SexyAds has them, and the forums cover many hot topics. There is even a part of the site where paying subscribers can submit narrations of their sexual experiences. Also, I found out that SexyAds.com provide tips regarding dating and sex. There is a new feature called the Nictic which allow you to put a customized bar in your computer’s desktop. This toolbar alerts you when other members of your choosing are logging into the site.
We all know that dating sites like this have regular “free” members and that there are “special” privileged groups. The VIPs of this site get prioritized in terms of search results and Customer Service. Also, adult-themed movie downloads are available to paying members. I, for one, am always happy to get this kind of content. It gives me something to do when I want to be on the site, but “disconnected” from fellow members.
Guests of SexyAds.com will find a large database with categories on interests. This site addresses the problem that majority of online dating sites perennially face — the presence of fake profiles. SexyAds.com ascertains if a member is bogus or not by having the member upload a photo with the phrase “sexyads” on his/her body. This lets other site members be assured that the profile owner is a real person. This is certainly a unique feature that will definitely attract people who are after real connections.
Non-paying members can enjoy the site too. If you decide not to get membership, you can respond to VIPs, upload photos, search/browse, and even get access to the site’s video chat (although access is limited to only one hour each day). The site’s chat rooms are classified into Adult or Non Adult. I really like the large amount of content on the site, but the site’s webmasters could use more organization in the layout. The left side of the pages is too “heavy” and can appear cluttered. I think the people running SexyAds.com could afford to get rid of a few features, actually.
As a new member, the chat room is the quickest route to getting known. It is not surprising that the many chat rooms of the site are favorites of many members. If you want to see people in the area before paying for membership, this is possible. If you are a constant traveler, then this site is a good one. I have met several SexyAds.com members in countries where I’ve gone to.
As a member, if you want webcams or emails as your principal form of communication, then it’s a go. The deciding factor is how daring or how conservative you wish to be. The site has all the tools that you need to be able to correspond with members. All you need to do is make use of them.
What then is the bottom line? The site is recommended particularly to first-timers in the online dating world. While I do not mean to bash the new entrants, there is always something comforting with veteran sites, of which SexyAds.com is one. Check out SexyAds.com and discover a world of pleasure!
