Their logo plays off the familiar, reminding us of Twitter’s infamous birds doing the dirty. It’s playful, humorous, and a little bit naughty – a perfect representation of SocialSex.
The sign up process is much like that of other dating sites. First, you’re asked what you are (man, woman, couple, gay couple, lesbian couple), with the choices being displayed in ornate little cages (have they been too naughty?). Next, where you want to hook up (you location) as the lovely lady guide takes of a layer of clothing! And as you continue, she takes off more and more: what is your birthday, who are you interested in meeting (men, women, couples, gay couples, lesbian couples), what do you want to do with them (one night stand, oral sex, anal, cybersex, etc), how often do you have sex (never, once a year, once a month, once a week, 1-2 times a day), what are you favorite positions (69, blow job, girl on top, doggy style, spooning, etc), where do you like to have sex (beach, park, church, bedroom, etc), how do you feel about oral sex (no way; hate giving, love getting; love getting, hate getting; like it sometimes; it’s a requirement), how do you feel about anal sex (same options as oral). Now you just need to input a screen name and your email address and a password will be sent to you.
Once you’re logged in you’ll be able to see the sites members and features. The profile pictures can be quite raunchy (which is fine, considering what people are on SocialSex for) and you can do a basic search to find the members that are near your location. The features, although exciting looking, are almost all inaccessible from the free account. It’s quite a tease to see all the things you could have with an upgraded account: advanced search function, the “Gold Room” (xxx movies, sexboosters, dating advice, erotic stories, swingers club), chat rooms, message boards, forums, videos on demand, the SocialSex store, contests… it goes on and on! You can, however, edit your profile (including upload photos), and see featured members, who’s “online now”, your latest matches, who’s viewed you, who you’ve viewed, and your recent activity.
SocialSex also has a Customer Support page that you can refer to if you have any issues, questions or comments. They will respond to your inquiry immediately.

The Memberships also come with a “100 day Hook Up Guarantee” which states that if you don’t hook up in your first 100 days, your next 100 days are free.
SocialSex‘s free membership is less than amazing. Unless you upgrade to the Silver or Gold account, the site is kind of useless, save for the endless hours you could spend browsing naughty profile photos. Also, there is no option for transexual users, which seems ridiculous to me, since they make up a good chunk of the population in this modern age.
SocialSex is a great platform for those who are looking for locals to have casual and no strings attached sex with. It has over 20 million members worldwide and even with so many members the site still offers a GUARANTEE that you’ll hookup. SocialSex has an abundance of features that allow users to really connect with other members, it is easy to navigate, and it strives to make each member’s casual online dating experience a great one. The variety of these features puts SocialSex.com heads above other online dating sites. So, for the price, I see no reason at all not to try this site.
