Introduction

 

Kasidie is an online dating site for swingers who are looking for casual sexual encounters and swinging events. It has been serving in the ‘alternative lifestyle’ for more than 10 years and has a good reputation for providing a safe community for swingers.

 

Although it accepts singles, it is more inclined towards swinger couples. The site functions more like a social media platform than a typical dating site where members can create profiles and ad friends. Members can also update their status, upload photo albums, post on their friend’s wall, find and attend events.

Features

 

Creating a Profile

 

It is very easy to create a profile on the website. You can just register your email address, location, age and other log-in details. Meanwhile, uploading a profile photo is a must. If you don’t upload a photo, the first photo you upload in your album will automatically become your profile photo. If you don’t want your identity to be known, you can crop or blur parts of the photo. You can’t use graphic sexual images on your main profile.

Other parts of the profile can be filled as much as you want. This includes your sexual preferences, personal appearance such as height, weight, eye and hair color, complexion, etc.), and other descriptions of yourself and what you are looking for.

For more private information such are your sexual fetishes and other things you don’t want to tell the general public, you can write them on ‘Private Text.’ There is also an area for nude or sensual pictures on ‘Private Photos.’ These things will only be visible for members you have granted with ‘Backstage Access.’

 

Account Certification

 

In Kasidie, getting your account certified isn’t just a way to make your profile more credible. It also unlocks numerous features which are not available for both free and elite members.

You would have to upgrade to be an elite member first before getting certified. You can get certified by:

1. Having a certified friend of yours to verify your profile for you.

2. Meet a Kasidie staff or event host at any Kasidie sponsored party or event.

There is also a listed option to email a clear photo of you with a sign saying “Kasidie.com” and your member name to [email protected] However only do this option if you can’t do the first two. Some member reviews reveal that the staff at certifications are pretty much unresponsive.

The certified seal is the most common seal type which represents certified community members. Aside from the certified title, there are also a lot of other title types you may see at the platform. These are as follows:

Founder – Kasidie gives honor to their loyal members. Founders are the founding members or earliest certified members on the site since it began.

Profile Search and Browsing

 

Members can use the Profiles & Photos tab to find profiles using part of their username.

However, for free members, there are profiles which are not viewable due to their settings.

Other members will know it if you viewed their profile. You can choose to deactivate this feature so you can view other profiles incognito. In turn, you will also not see members who are viewing you. You can find those who viewed your profile in the tab ‘Who’s Viewing Me?’

 

Sending Flirts

Ease of Use

 

The sign-up for new members is very easy. However, even if you pay to become an elite member, most of the site’s best features are inaccessible unless you get certified. This is a good thing and a bad thing. Certifying members filters out the fakes; however, there are reviews of some new members getting a dilemma on how to get certified without attending an official event.

 

For new members, it is much difficult to find someone to chat with. Many members restrict their IM’s to friends. On the other hand, users are very much active in forums, travel, and events.

 

The website is good enough, though the design is quite bland. The site has many links and functions, so new users might have to spend more time to get the hang of it and fully navigate the pages. Kasidie has a much more compact mobile app available for both Android and iOS.

Kasidie Safety & Security

 

The site has much tighter security than other dating sites. It’s very easy to conceal your identity as real names are not used in profiles, and you can blur the photos. The site also has a strict certification system. Meaning it will be more difficult for fake profiles to pass through the certification process and they can’t do much on the site even if they pay for membership.

 

All messaging features are hosted on the website’s internal system and members may report and block malicious members. The site’s Privacy Policy states that the site won’t provide user information to any third party without permission. However, they cautioned users that no security technology is perfect and the website is not invincible to hacking.

How To Contact Kasidie

 

The site has an internal ‘Admin/Customer Service’ page where members to contact the customer service staff for their concerns. Users can also visit the site’s Twitter and Facebook account or mail to Kasidie Entertainment, LLC at P.O. Box 30308 Las Vegas, NV 89173.

Positives & Negatives

 

Pros

 

● Active user base
● Local, national and international event listings
● Unique features for instant hook-ups
● Has active social media pages

Cons

 

● Few features and content available for free members
● No automatic matching feature
● It takes some time before you can navigate the site fully

Other Sites To Consider

 

SwingLifestyle- This is a more affordable alternative for Kasidie. It has more traffic and has many loyal and active members. However, its site design looks outdated.

 

SDC- Swingers Date Club or SDC is a more expensive site than Kasidie. It has more or less the same amount of members; however, it has additional features like live cams and site contests.

Kasidie Review Final Words

 

Wrapping up, Kasidie is a good site if you are looking to attend offline meet-ups and parties. It has a large list of events and travels you can crash and very active members. Members also have good interaction online through forums and chat rooms.

 

It has an atmosphere of a site which focuses more on their users than counting money. The site focuses more on member interaction and gatherings than online fun. There are not many photos and video materials on the site. It has no nude model pics, live cams, or pay per view videos that similar sites use to earn money. Instead, the photos and videos are mostly uploaded by users.

Just paying also won’t get you anywhere. An elite account has too many restrictions much like a free account unless you get certified. This minimizes the risk of fake accounts.
