    I have been meaning to post this all weekend, but didn't get around to it (one reason being that my profile is not complete and I did not want to invite people until it was :mamoru:)

    I recently had a friend continually request I join a site known as Fetlife (www.fetlife.com). I finally gave in and checked out the site.

    It was described to me as basically Fetish Facebook. Obviously, Fet stands for 'Fetish', while life is 'Lifestyle'. Since joining, I have cruised the site a bit, found things I like and dislike (the privacy settings are SERIOUSLY lacking).

    It has a lot of great tools and is primarily focused on group affiliation. That is, finding fetishes that you are interested in and finding like minded people. We continually have people post in FS about things they are interested in and having difficulties finding like minded people. This site is not that big yet, but I feel it could help with that.

    Basically, my point of this was not to advertise, despite how it sounds.

    My purpose is two-fold. (It was three, but I forgot the third point :mamoru:)

    1) Are any of you on there or have you heard of it?
    2) Whether you are on there or not, what are your thoughts about the idea of a site like this and its practical usage?


    I was hoping that I could entice some good conversation about this site as I feel it is fairly relevant to the community here.

    Note: Yes, I have permission to post another site

    I was invited to join it a little while back, and while I did set up a very basic profile I don't use it that much. I just go in periodically to look at some of the discussion topics in some of the categories that I joined. It does seem like a pretty good way to interact with like-minded individuals.

    If people want to add me, I am 'Bubba'

    The little bit of time I have spent on the site has been good. I feel it is lacking a few key features. I will probably talk to the admin about some of them. The groups are great. There is plenty of good discussion. I do enjoy being able to post your fetishes in your profile so you can match up with other people. I do wish you could search by fetish easier however.

    Lovely has spent more time on the site than I have, so she could probably comment more on the usage of the site, however, thus far, I see it being a useful tool

    About 4 months ago I would guess. I tended to always be called Bubba, but apparently Lovely got called Atlantis. In addition, since we are a couple, it made more sense for us to have a similar 'last name' so we both used our regular name for our 'first name' (Bubba/Lovely) and used Atlantis as a 'last name'

    you have to watch for Fazle to open the thread. He opens it off and on as he has time to do name changes.

    You can search by fetish actually. If you go to someone's profile where the fetish is listed and click on that fetish it will pull up a list of all members with that fetish. Same with city etc. :p So the search options aren't obvious, but they are there.

    Thanks for the info, I'm always looking for new fetish friends and community sites but never had much luck. I registered and looked around but don't have any pictures here at work so I'll have to go back and make my profile later.

    :hsugh:

    Where do you see it lacking? I would agree, I did not find it to be the best. LOL I have debated how detailed I wanted to get. I have heard that the owner is rather open to feedback (positive and negative) and I have a bunch of things that I would like to suggest as improvements, but I do not want to overstep my place.

    What did you find that was good?

    I will have to check out collarme.com

    Yeah, I had some issues with the fetish stuff too. I presume our 'dislikes' are different though. I don't think there are enough categories for placing things. I think there should be a 'fetish' 'like' 'curious about' So essentially: Things that are fetishes, things I like but are not a fetish for me and things I have yet to do, but I am curious about.

    :mamoru:

    :dunno: the site isn't discrete enough for me to browse at work, and when i get home Tigre takes up the laptop most of the time so i really don't have much browsing time to get on that site. we'll see, tomorrow i'm off and tigre will be out of the house, so maybe i'll explore more...

    I have been so busy of late that I just have not had time to go on there. Like yourself, I can't really view it at work and I have been busy most evenings. I wouldn't mind browsing some of the members and groups when I have time though. In addition, I am planning on putting up some of my photography. I wish I could create multiple 'albums' however. The one concern I have with adding photos is that there are no privacy settings on the site and thus I can not limit who can see the photos; which is a bit of a bummer.
