While these sites do attract criticism, they also keep things up front among those who use them.
When you find a date on there, you know what you’re getting.
With its explicitly imagery it has a “porno site” feel about it – not ideal for attracting quality female members. Illicit Encounters is big on helping members maintain their privacy, so most members don’t show photos to everyone who’s browsing, but rather only allow members with whom they’ve had online contact to see their photos (by setting passwords).
Unfortunately I found a lot of profiles to be empty, and some even have “test data” in them. Just trying to get a list of matches involves several clicks and selections.
Upgrading will significantly increase your chances, because unlike the vast majority of men on there who’re trying to “get laid for free”, you have the option to use “open the door” to chat with hot females (who men on free accounts can’t reach). You can place your content (either photos, or videos) into private folders and then, on those you can set your desired access. There just isn’t the same level of privacy options as are available on the two sites above.
In my experience most attractive women will not upgrade – they will just wait for VIP men to contact them. Anyone in your friends list can see your private photos. I found Gleeden to be a bit less active than the other sites, the group areas were often empty and I only got replies to a couple of the emails I sent out.
We are now going on 3 years together and getting married in December this year. I having nothing but praise for the facility to meet people, something which some of us don't have time for in real life.
I chatted with a member and we never met until 7 years later. Got to take a breather for now, reconciling with an old flame I found here.
However what I would say is that most of “the profiles” on there do seem genuine and to have real, ordinary people behind them (you don’t get the feeling of it being packed with model-like airbrushed photos).
Like a lot of other “adult oriented sites”, most of the males on there create free accounts and act like “horny teenage boys”, trying to get laid.
