The Idea Behind Fling.com
Fling advertises itself as a free dating site. If you're seeking prospective partners for a serious relationship, the advice would be to look elsewhere. This site is very much geared towards one-night sex, casual encounters, and cam sex. So how do we rate the Fling experience? This Fling dating site review will examine different aspects of this dating site and give our overall assessment.
The Pros of Fling

There is something in the region of 50 million members on Fling, located in a diverse range of locations, from Europe to North and South America to the Far East and beyond. The male to female split of members is 80% to 20%, and the overwhelming majority of female site users are aged between 25 and 45.
Once you've created your member login you can set about establishing your dating profile in greater detail. You are invited to upload a photo and choose a display name. You can also click on filters – are you exclusively looking for members with photos, and are you looking for members near you? You can also specify an age range, race, hair color, and body type.
When you choose a photo to upload, a pop-up window appears inviting you to select everyone you think it hot from the thumbnail photos. You can send winks.
You can search on Fling in a variety of ways, and the interface is designed in such a way to make the options appear convenient and easily-navigatable. The horizontal search bar at the top of the page has the following headings: home, search, online now, chat, trending now and live girls. Clicking on search produces a drop-down containing the options: search members, advanced search, SMS users, most popular, new faces, who's viewed me, online now, mood statuses and members live streaming.
When you search, thumbnails will appear with the member's username and a profile photo (or often just a suggestive part of their anatomy!) There will be options to send a message, have a quick chat, favorite the person, or notify you.
You can't check out additional photos in their profiles or use any of the options mentioned in the previous paragraph unless you subscribe, or at least take out the trial membership.
You can make contact with other site users as soon as you have a login, and have selected a price plan. This will enable you to start chatting to any of the singles you have been matched with according to the parameters you've previously set.
There's no app version of Fling, and it has to be said the mobile version of the website is a little clunkier. It's fine for messaging, but not all of the features will transfer to your smart device, especially if you have an older phone.
Live cam shows are available at a click of a link, and you can filter country of origin (UK/US Australia, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Asia or Africa). You can select your preferred age parameters. You can choose from three features – party chat, phone or interactive vibrator. Lastly, you can check out the categories – everything from ebony, foot fetish, hairy pussy, and group sex to huge tits or redheads, and many more.

Common questions and their answers
Fling is a website catering to the erotic site of online dating rather than people looking for meaningful relationships. The focus is on one-night stands, casual encounters, and cam sex.
Worldwide Connect Partners LLC, Miami, USA.
Yes, Fling is a legit website with over 50 million worldwide members.
You can sign up for free and spend a certain amount of time browsing through the profiles. But if you want to take advantage of any of the interactive functionality you need to pay a membership fee.
One-month premium membership will set you back $35.00, or just over $1.00 a day, which is a reasonable amount for the possibilities this will introduce.
Click on your profile photo in the top navigation bar. From the menu that appears, select Account Settings. Now scroll down to Deactive my account in the left-hand panel. You are reminded you can place your account on hold, view or download your information and delete your account at any time. A final window appears where you need to click on your reason for leaving, everything from 'just need a break, I'll be back' to 'I found someone/I'm in a relationship.' Lastly, click on the 'delete account'.
Click on your profile thumbnail at the top of the page. From the drop-down menu, select 'Help.' This gives you access to a comprehensive help facility, with FAQs. The last question in the main panel is 'How do I cancel my membership.' By selecting 'cancel membership' you're taken to the support center where you action this by following the links. There's also a free phone number.
Summary – do we recommend Fling.com?
If you like your dating sites to achieve a fine balance between sociable and erotic, you'll find Fling to be right up your street. Unlike some comparable sites that can have a seedy atmosphere, Fling is simply designed – it's a bit like browsing through a dating site from the 1990s – but its functionality can't be faulted.
The signing up process is quickly achieved, and even before you begin checking out the profiles of your fellow Flingsters you are presented with a pop-up containing a whole range of member thumbnails for you to assess, just to put you in the mood.
Once you get to the main panel, the fun can begin. Unlike generic dating sites where you can't always be 100% sure of the motivations of the singles you are interacting with, the members here have all arrived at this site because they have certain sexual tastes that they are all too eager to satisfy with kindred spirits.
You can interact with other site users in a variety of ways. As well as passing messages to and from, you can check out the cam action. While performances are ongoing, you can communicate with the models. At this point you could get truly interactive, suggesting things they could do to enhance the show. If you've enabled your webcam, you could branch out to virtual sex.
A terrific aspect of Fling is the way it nurtures a community of like-minded individuals, keeping you appraised of topics currently trending in the environment. Another unique attribute is the sex shop where you can browse through a selection of wares, perhaps acting on suggestions you've received from other members.
You are never going to encounter any timewasters here, or prudes for that matter. You'll find the site users are always up for fun and erotic action, and their profiles will leave you in no doubt as to their sexual preferences.
