When it comes to meeting new people, online dating is the most convenient option. And these days, no matter what your dating preferences are, you can find a dating website to meet your needs. That is especially true of BDSM and fetish dating.

There is an excellent variety of BDSM websites out there that can satisfy your kinky dating needs. I've put together this list of online dating platforms that are just for BDSM, bondage, and fetishes.

1. Alt.com

Alt.com is one of the leading BDSM sites on the web. This option specialized in all things BDSM, bondage, and kinky sex. Now, if you're new to the world of BDSM, kink, and fetish, this site might be slightly intimidating. Rest assured, the Alt.com community is ideal for experts and beginners alike.

You can find like-minded people to chat with, exchange erotic pictures, and check out kinky porn all on the site. Just keep in mind, this option is most definitely not safe for work. Many users include nudes directly in their profile pictures, which you'll see right away.

You can join Alt.com by signing up for a free account. You'll need a valid email address to get started.

Best Feature on Alt.com: The most popular feature on this BDSM dating site is the chat feature. This feature allows people to connect to other users directly on the site to explore their fantasies and fetishes.

2. Adultfriendfinder

AdultFriendFinder or AFF is one of the most popular alternative dating sites around. Now, strictly speaking, AFF is not a BDSM website. Rather, AFF is dedicated to a larger fetish community that includes swingers, open dating, and of course, BDSM fetish play.

If you're worried about finding a match in your city, AFF is the way to go. The platform has an absolutely massive user base that makes it easy to find someone to enjoy your fetish with. AFF offers a free sign-up, but to enjoy most features you'll need to sign up for a premium account. While it's not ideal to pay for kink sites, this website offers a lot of great features in return.

Best feature on Adult Friend Finder: While it may not be everybody’s cup of tea, I personally enjoy the erotic fiction on AFF. Users can write and publish their own erotica and blog posts on AFF for other users to enjoy.

3. MilfFinder

As you may have guessed, MilfFinder is a dating platform that is dedicated to milfs and the people who love them. And let me tell you, this platform is chock full of hot moms waiting to get it on.

If you're asking why this site is on a list dedicated to BDSM websites, the answer is simple. It turns out milfs are pretty freaky, so it's a great place to find a partner for your BDSM fetish. This site is all about embracing the kinks that bring you pleasure.

Best Feature on MilfFinder: While it's not technically a feature, the extremely naughty profile pictures on nearly every account are a huge bonus for this site. When you visit the site, you're essentially getting access to free porn and adult content.

4. FetLife

When it comes to bondage and fetish, FetLife reigns supreme. This option is fully dedicated to all things fetish, with a huge BDSM community. You can use this site to find threesome partners, dominant and submissive BDSM partners, singles, couples — you name it, you can find it on FetLife.

FetLife is more than just a dating site. In fact, it's set up much like a social network, such as Facebook. That means you can make online connections, watch videos, and chat. You can also interact with user content, and learn more about the world of BDSM and kinky sex. FetLife is free to use so you can get started right away.

Best Feature on FetLife: Well, if you're interested in fetishes, you will love FetLife. You can explore up to 60 different types of fetishes on the site to see what type of kink you're into. That means, even if you don't know exactly what turns you on, you can figure it out with Fetlife.

5. BDSM Singles

BDSM Singles does not mess around. This platform is absolutely overflowing with people trying to make a BDSM connection. Right of the bat, you'll notice the high female to male ratio of users on this site. Whether you're looking for dominant or submissive partners or even groups, you can find it on this site.

BDSM Singles is a location-based dating site, so you can easily find kinky people in your area who are looking for casual sex. That being said, if you live in a smaller town, you might have a hard time finding a match in your area. You can get started on this BDSM website for free with just a valid email address.

Best Feature on BDSM Singles: One very cool thing about this site is the photo section. BDSM Singles has an entire area of the site dedicated to naughty user photos that you can check out for free. This makes for a fun experience, even if you don't meet up with anyone.

6. Feeld

Most of the options on this list are websites, so I wanted to give you an app option as well. Feeld is a fairly new mobile app that helps people connect with other kinky users. This app is great for singles and couples seeking kinky people, BDSM dating, and alternative relationships. And while most bondage and kink sites are geared towards casual relationships, you'll find many people looking for love on Feeld. You can download the app for free in any app store.

Best Feature on Feeld: For an app dedicated to threesomes, the group chat feature really is clever. You can add multiple users to the chat feature directly in the Feeld app.

7. Fetster

If you're looking for a free BDSM site to join, you will love what Fetster has to offer. This is one of the best BDSM sites for finding a kinky partner. The best part is, you can access all of the features for free.

Fetster is great for learning more about the online BDSM world. When you join Fetster, you can find free kink and BDSM events, blog posts, videos, adult content, and online BDSM groups.

You'll also receive unlimited messages without ever having to pay a dime. Most BDSM websites require an upgrade to a premium account to access this many social features.

Best Feature on Fetster: My favorite feature on Fetster is the forums. You can learn all about bondage, kink play, adult toys, and get to know other users. You'll also be able to share your own interests and experiences.

8. BondagePal

With a name like BondagePal, you can expect a whole lot of fun. BondagePal is a website that is geared towards casual sexual encounters of the BDSM variety. This website is great because it's so welcoming to all users. Whether you're experienced in bondage, or just curious to learn more, BondagePal is a solid option.

You can look at photos, watch videos and chat with other kinksters. Unlike other online dating sites, BondagePal makes sure all of its users are real people. That means you don't have to worry about fake profiles and bot accounts. The site also has a dedicated team of moderators to ensure that everything is safe and respectful.

Best Feature on BondagePal: BondagePal has a pretty great live chat feature built into the site. You can use the chat feature to exchange naughty photos and videos for a more exciting online experience.

9. BDSM Hookups

BDSM Hookups is the place to go to find a dominatrix. Most BDSM sites are geared towards a mixture of doms and subs, but this option really highlights mistresses and dominant women. For that reason, the woman to man ratio is impressively high.

Aside from classic BDSM and bondage, you'll also find a thriving community of foot fetishists. You can find an alluring array of foot photos and videos for your pleasure. The coolest thing about this website is that it's welcoming to all sexual orientations. There are plenty of people in the LGBTQ+ community that join and enjoy this website.

Best Feature on BDSM Hookups: A cool feature on BDSM Hookups is the advanced search feature. You can use this feature to search for kinks, location, gender, and age. This makes it super easy to find a bondage partner in your city.

10. BDSM Date

BDSM Date is popular for its social features such as blogs and forums where you can chat and interact with other users. This option is great for finding casual sex with local singles who are into latex and leather, bondage, femdom, and more.
