Have fun with your friends and keep in touch with the closest ones. The Browse page has all the latest updates for New members, Latest matches using the criteria you specified and Online members, as well as VIP profiles – people who are serious about finding someone on Kinky-Personals.com.

Friends – add members who you really like into this list and they will receive notification that you have a serious interest in them. Who knows, they may like you too.

Chat

Our cool and easy-to-use chat program creates an instant connection between you and other members. You can see who is on the site now, chat to them through the instant messenger feature or talk to them through your microphone.

We have created a unique feature “chat later” that allows you to store chat requests in your chat history if you want to concentrate just on browsing the site without being continuously interrupted. You can always see how many people are waiting to chat with you on the main top menu Chat bar.

*Note: The chat function will only work on a device and browser that support flash.

Your Profile

Useful tips when creating a profile

Do you know that interesting profiles with a photo and detailed information attract 20 times more interest than poorly written ones without a photo?

We would recommend putting your real age and the most recent photo on your profile. It does not have to be a professional photograph as a more natural one will attract a better reaction. At the end of the day this is how you look in real life and this is exactly how your future partner will see you. Adding videos gives you an extra bonus to show more of who you are. Profiles with video are usually much more popular.

Take your time to write a description. Paint a true picture of yourself. Your profile is your digital self – make it as close to your real self as possible.

Other members would like to know what your expectations are. Try not to be too precise, make sure you leave room for others to find out more about you but still give a good impression of your ideal match. It will help to avoid people who you are not really interested in at all.

Fill in all the additional criteria that you think is relevant to you. This will help us to send you updates with more accurate matches and also will give very useful information about you to other members.

Presenting yourself well is the first step towards success on the Kinky-Personals.com

Is my profile censored?

Yes, each new or updated profile goes through a manual moderation process. We do not moderate your personal information. We only check that the profile does not contain illegal or abusive content in the pictures or profile description. The Data Protection Act does not allow us to show your personal contact details publicly. You can exchange this information in one-to-one communication with site members.

How long does it take to get my profile approved?

We aim to approve profiles within 2 hours but it can take up to 24 hours in the busiest times and at weekends. Please be patient, our moderation system is in place to ensure a secure and enjoyable experience on Kinky-Personals.com

When I will be shown on the search results?

How do I make changes in my profile?
