Our 2020 Collarspace Review
Collarspace prides itself on being a safe, sane, and consensual place on the internet for those interested in the BDSM lifestyle.
This Collarspace review will provide you with everything you need to know to have an enjoyable experience online in the BDSM community, regardless of your previous experience.
The information about members on the Collarspace website is left entirely up to them and how much they want to share. There are very few demographic questions required to be answered when creating a profile, limiting the required information on the userbase. However, all is not lost as many members share a great deal of information. Most members include information about their interests, what they are looking for in the BDSM community on Collarspace, and their level of interest in a relationship. You will find that some members are interested in a long-term relationship, while others are purely seeking the opportunity to engage in a sexual fantasy or one-time fling. Most members are upfront in their desires, which tempers expectations from the onset.
Sign Up Process
While the site is free to use and provides easy access to graphics, it can be cumbersome at first. The Collarspace website will take you to a BDSM Personals website that looks entirely different from the main home page. Because of this, you may wonder if you are still accessing the same community. Rest assured that you are.
It is easy to sign up. You will be prompted to enter your birthday, zip code, and a few other demographic tidbits. Once through, you will be prompted to confirm your account via email.
Contacting people on Collarspace is quite simple. Once you create a profile, you have access to graphic images and videos. Profile photos do not have to be a photo of your face. In fact, most photos are related to fetishes, sexual prowess, or BDSM. Once you find something or someone of interest, you can click on the thumbnail photo and contact the member. It is important to note that you should avoid utilizing the website around small children as the content is graphic and sexually explicit.
Contacting people on Collarspace is the easiest of all platforms, which is why it scored so well on our rating scale. To contact people, you simply click on their username. Once you click on a user’s profile, you can learn more about them, see photos, watch videos, and even read journal entries if they have some posted. Another perk to being a member of the Collarspace community is that you will see whether someone is online in real-time. This will give you more of an opportunity to connect with someone because if they are offline, it is easy to miss a message.
When you create a profile on Collarspace, you can share as much or as little as you want. There are some standard demographic questions that you are prompted to answer, such as sexual orientation, body type, race, marital status, and interests. You can also upload photos and videos showcasing your interests or allowing people to see what you have to offer.
Collarspace requires that you enter the demographic information; however, you do not have to be honest. Nobody at Collarspace is checking your information to verify the accuracy of what you are contributing to the community.
The profile on Collarspace is average in comparison to other dating websites of the BDSM genre.
Collarspace on a mobile phone is limited in functionality. This is because Collarspace does not offer a specific app; however, they encourage members to access the Adult FriendFinder app to engage in relations with others while on the go. To download access to the Collarspace app advertised on their website, you will be directed to the iTunes store and will be prompted to utilize the Adult FriendFinder app.
While the app is not bad, it is only available for iPhone at this time. It is combined with another app, making it challenging to decipher between Adult FriendFinder and Collarspace. It is important to note that the Collarspace website can be easily accessed from a desktop computer or mobile device. The website is optimized for mobile use, which is ideal for those on the go who do not have access to the app.
Collarspace is free and easy to use. However, if you want to invest in premium features, you can upgrade to an affordable paid membership plan, or you can purchase a small add-on feature to draw attention to your profile. Doing so is affordable and will allow you more access than the basic, free version.
The best value is $12.50 a month for 12 months, and it is billed at one time. The gold membership will allow you to access customer service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, automatically make your profile show up at the very top of a search and allow you unlimited access to viewing profiles and contacting members.
Another way to improve your Collarspace website experience is to purchase small add on features such as highlighting your listing so that you stand out amongst the crowd. For a small monthly fee, you can rise to the top of the page and draw attention to yourself with a profile highlight.
The Bottom Line
Collarspace is free and easy to use by anyone. Many choose to use Collarspace in conjunction with other online communities to supplement their options and BDSM activities. Whether you are new to the BDSM community or are a seasoned professional, Collarspace is a great environment to explore. It offers variety, is affordable, and is easy to use.
