In comparison to a multitude of alternative dating sites, the membership is low at only 50,000. While the profile screen does ask if you are looking for gay, lesbian or other sexual orientation, the nature of the site does suggest that it is highly leaning towards the heterosexual swingers community.
It is easy to sign up to Swingles.com but members must verify their profile and ensure that they validate their membership before using the site. It is a simple process to get started with a few details. The first screen asks for details about what you are looking for. It also wants to know some personal details – hair color, eye color, height, piercings, tattoos. It also asks for the kind of experience you want – are you separated, divorced, single etc. and what are you looking for? it won’t let you skip a stage and if your description is too short, it will not let you continue to the next stage. You can choose to add photos at a later stage. There are some questions that could be deemed as quite personal.
Once you register with Swingles.com, you are immediately presented with local potential matches that match what you are looking for. You can then enter your search criteria to carry out your own search. Choose from the filters to decide if you want someone for a relationship, choose by age, by location and much more. The advanced search functionality allows you to search for potential matches without you being charged at this stage.
Once you land on your initial homepage, you will see down the left-hand side a list of available messages and winks that you have to use before you are required to upgrade your account. Initially there are 25 messages and 25 winks. You also get free chat access so you can initiate contact and start chatting. It is a great selection of contact options with a standard account before you have to decide whether or not to upgrade.
There is no app available currently for Swingles.com however they state in their FAQs that there is one in development and that you will be able to download it soon however the site is well optimized for mobile whether that be a phone or tablet, should you wish to arrange hookups on the go if you are working away for example.
Winks, free chat, video chats and webcams are all features of this site that make it easy for you to make contact and get in touch with people. Their advanced search functionality could also be classed as a special feature. What we really liked is how accessible their member support is with a link underneath your chat options to get hold of someone. This seems to be a much higher level of support for members than some sites offer.
To join the site as a standard member doesn’t incur any costs, however, to unlock all the benefits an upgraded membership exists. The confusing thing is that we signed up as a standard member and our account was automatically upgraded to that of a platinum member with no mention of payment or membership plans.
- Register on the site
- Profile creation
- Send 4 winks a day to members
- Reply to 4 winks a day
- While it is indicated that there is fee based services by the free features listed above, we were automatically upgraded with no option to pay for all of the upgraded benefits. The account automatically showed how many messages we had and winks available.
We didn’t have the option to pay so this is not clear.
Common questions and their answers
Swingles.com is a swingers dating site that allows couples to find couples or singles to join in with their sexual exploits. The site is aimed at delivering a positive experience to its members.
Swingles is owned by Giga Pty Ltd and their terms and conditions clearly state that any agreements are between the member and this company.
While there is not a lot of information online about Swingles.com, they are a legitimate concern with a good 24/7 customer support and genuine members that are verified and validated.
Swingles suggests that there is a paid for membership for using the site although we couldn’t find any evidence of this. All we could find was a link to upgrade that encouraged us to join the site.
At this stage, it is hard to say what the subscription costs are as we couldn’t’ find any information on the site either by following the sign up and upgrade procedure or in their FAQ section. That is not to day that if they grow over the coming months, they won’t add a paid for option.
It is quite easy to delete your account if you choose to. On the right-hand side of the site in the corner, simply click on the round profile icon – then you will see down the left-hand side of the page a link to pause or cancel the account.
Either take a break or cancel your account – your subscription will either be paused and unfrozen when you return or cancelled. Auto-renewals will also be frozen. This means that any money for renewal will then not be taken.
It is not hard to contact Swingles with various access points to do so. There are a whole host of FAQs so you can search the answers to your questions yourself or you can click member support or the contact link at the bottom of the page. Contact is made by submitting a support request.
Summary – do we recommend Swingles.com?
If Swingles really is a free dating site (and we could find nothing to the contrary to prove otherwise) then it really does offer great value. There is limited membership with only 50,000 worldwide which suggests that you may struggle to meet the right match in your area. Our matches were limited but we can’t speak for every area. That said the site is dead simple to use, it is mobile friendly and it has all of the functionality of a dating site that you would expect. As a free site, there is nothing to lose if you want to give it a go.
