Adult dating sites are always contentious. Some people refuseto use them, some people use them exclusively. They cause debateon morality and a range of other issues. As you’d be aware of bynow though, at website Down Under, we aren’t really interested in these types of opinions. We are open minded enough to know thatpeople like these sites, so they obviously provide a valuable service somewher. So we’d rather take the position of advising you of some of the pros, cons, dangers and rewards thiscategory of dating site exposes you to, so you can be betterprepared if you decide adult dating is for you.
As such, we have put together a page on our website to review adult dating sites. We only put up sites on this page, which we have vetted and believe offer a high value service. There are many sites out there which we have reviewed and found lacking. These substandard sites are fraught with dangers, some of which we list below, putting you and your finances at risk. You can visit and read our reviews of our “safer” adult dating sites.
Dangers Of Adult Dating Sites
There are many dangers with adult dating sites. The dangers thesesites pose to men tend to be different to women, so we have splitthese up and summarised them below:
Adult Dating Sites – Dangers To WomenTypically the dangers a woman faces from these sites are dangers toher “person”. These sites tend primarily to emphasise opensexuality in dating, and therefore there is an expectation thata date will quickly escalate into a sexual encounter. Obviouslyproblems can quickly arise where the expectations of a date differbetween the participants.
So the best advice we can give to women is to not put yourself in a position of physical vulnerability, until you are completely sure that is where you want to be with a person. Make sure your first date is in a public place, if for no other reason than to ensure the person matches the photo and the other details on the dating site.
And only escalate when you feel safe and comfortable with your partner.
This is pretty sound advice to anyone who is dating. But due to the sexual expectations surrounding adult dating sites, it is especially important here.
Adult Dating Sites – Dangers To MenThe biggest threats to men on these sites, are not dangers to their person, rather dangers to their wallet. Adult dating sites are packed with scammers, and unfortunately, most (butnot all) of them are pretty women. Exactly the type of women you expected to meet on the site.
Some Adult Dating scams:1900 phone number scams. You can be contacted by someone whowants you to call them on a 1900 number. These phone calls costyou a packet, the scammer actually profits from the phone call. They will never meet you, all they want is for you to call so they make some money.
Scammers who want you to come to their site/see their pics/seetheir webcam. Its the same deal. These girls want your money,not to meet you. Their websites will always be pay per view orpay to signup, so you pay, and they get paid.
Scammers who are looking for a way out of their country.
Yes, these scammers can be pretty persuasive, but if you are lookingfor an international introduction, an adult dating site is not theright place to be. Go to a profession internation introductionssite, where the professionals who run it will protect you to somedegree from being scammed.
The best advice men can take on board when facing these dangersis simply to remember why you came to the site. You came to meetlike minded people to form a hot and steamy relationship with.You didn’t join these sites to give your hard earned cash up to people you’ll never meet.
The Rewards of Adult Dating Sites:
The rewards of adult dating sites are pretty much the same formen and women. Its simple really. The people who join thesesites are very open and honest about what they are looking for bothsexually and romantically. It can sometimes be very “in your face”. But this means that when you find someone you like, you know whatthey want, they know what you want, so the chances are really high that you’ll get exactly what you are looking for.
(which is probablysomething I can’t write about here)
So be careful what you wish for!
