Fetisch.de – Special contact exchange tested and compared
Overall impression: Rating:
The contact exchange Fetisch.de is a platform for people with special inclinations and preferences. Sexual interests are also in the foreground here. Fetisch.de calls itself “The community for alternative dating” .
Contact platforms for BDSM and people with a fetish have been on the Internet for almost 10 years. So they are still relatively young compared to the general dating and sex exchanges. Accordingly, these portals are well visited and are enjoying increasing popularity. Clearly a broad need is being met here. Fetisch.de is also growing rapidly and already has more than 180,000 members.
Compared to an affair agency or similar sites, Fetisch.de is cost-effective. The paid premium access offers some functions and extras.
Fetisch.de recently went online in version 2.0 and now offers a lot of news for friends of latex, fetish & BDSM . The design and layout of the contact exchange is simple but chic and catchy. It's very easy to use and you can register within 5 minutes.
After the short registration you will receive an access code by email and can use it to activate your account. This is followed by filling out your own profile.
Fetisch.de is basically free with basic access. However, you can only use all functions without restrictions with a premium membership. This is preferable to a free membership due to its extensive functions and contact options.
There is also a free way to get a premium membership - Fetisch.de awards points for certain actions, such as writing messages, rating pictures, and points. You can collect a maximum of 30 points per day. For 1,500 points collected you receive a free, 14-day premium membership. This can then take over 50 days. So you have to consider whether the effort is worth it. This is definitely an option for those looking to save money.
The contact exchange offers a variety of functions, a video chat , organizes photo competitions and there is an events calendar . As a further highlight, the platform offers its own blog. Guest contributions are also possible there.
The platform continues to offer an FSK18 check for premium members. The member then has unrestricted access to images and videos, of course including those that are not suitable for minors.
The contact exchange Fetisch.de makes a very serious impression and offers an active platform for fans of fetish & BDSM. Fetisch.de is fun even if you don't have a particular fetish or are simply curious about this scene and subculture. So it’s not just “hardcore” members who are registered. Rather, the membership structure is more heterogeneous and broader than related BDSM portals.

FETISCH.de has been our test winner in the area of fetish/BDSM contacts since it was relaunched in winter 2011.
The site is consistently aimed at the target group, but at the same time also offers newcomers to the scene or curious people outside the scene an exciting opportunity to enter the world of fetish contacts. You can easily use FETISCH.de for free, because reading and answering emails (up to 10 per day) is free. If you get a taste for it and make more and more contacts, a premium membership is worth it due to the wide range of functions.
