Fetisch.de – Special contact exchange in the test and comparison

Overall impression: Rating: ★★★★½

The contact exchange Fetisch.de is a platform for people with special inclinations and preferences. Here, sexual interests are also in the foreground. Fetisch.de calls itself “The community for alternative dating”.

FETISCH.de - BDSM Community and Fetish Contacts

FETISCH.de – BDSM Community and Fetish Contacts

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 singles and sex exchanges. Accordingly, these portals are well visited and also enjoy increasing popularity. Clearly, a broad need is being met here. Fetisch.de is also growing strongly and already has more than 180,000 members.

Compared to a dating agency or similar sites, Fetisch.de is inexpensive. 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. The operation is very easy and the registration is done within 5 minutes.

After the short registration you will receive an access code by email and can activate your account with it. This is followed by filling out your own profile.

Fetisch.de is basically free with a 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 another free way to get a premium membership – Fetisch.de awards points for certain actions, such as writing messages, rating pictures. You can collect a maximum of 30 points per day. For 1500 points collected, you get a free 14-day premium membership. This can then take over 50 days. It must therefore be weighed up whether the effort is worthwhile. This is definitely an option for those looking to save money.

The contact exchange offers in its functionality a video chat, hosts photo contests and there is a calendar of events. 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. After that, the member has unrestricted access to pictures and videos, including the adult ones, of course.

The contact exchange Fetisch.de makes a very serious impression and offers an active platform for friends of fetish & BDSM. Fetisch.de provides pleasure even if you don’t have a particular fetish or are just curious about this scene and subculture. So it’s not just “hardcore” members who are signed up. Rather, the membership structure is more heterogeneous and broadly oriented than in related BDSM portals.

Costs & Fees

The use of the site as a basic member is completely free of charge. This includes the basic use of the community and the range of functions of the basic membership is quite acceptable. For example, up to 10 messages per day can be sent to other members.

A premium membership is then chargeable and necessary for access to the XXX area (incl. FSK18 check) and for many useful additional functions. The following costs are incurred for this:

  • 9.99 Euro/month (12 months term)
  • 12,75 Euro/month (3 months term)
  • 14.99 Euro/month (1 month term)

Security, data protection and privacy

The provider undertakes to observe and comply with all statutory data protection provisions, in particular the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG). The data protection provisions are explained transparently in the GTC area. Data protection as well as the protection of the privacy of its members is a high priority for this provider.

Conclusion:

FETISCH.de has been our test winner in the area of fetish/BDSM contacts since the new start in winter 2011.
The site is consistently geared towards the target group, but at the same time also offers newcomers to the scene or curious strangers to the scene an exciting entry point into the world of fetish contacts. You can use FETISCH.de quite well already for free, because reading and answering mails (up to 10 per day) is free. If you get a taste for it and make more and more contacts, a premium membership is then worthwhile due to the high range of functions.
