Fling is for singles and swingers looking for some no-strings adult fun. Joining is free of charge, and creating a profile takes just a few minutes. After joining, you can browse photo galleries of local women or men, and enjoy intimate video chat.

Fling is a big online community for no strings dating.


Getting Started

It's a pay site, so don't expect to be able to do much unless you purchase a membership. The free account does let you search for people and view small profile photos - you can also send winks but only after you've uploaded a photo of yourself.

With free access, you can't view photos at full size, x-rated photos, nor view other people's profile details. Email access is also blocked.

All-in-all it's pretty limited, but "in-line" with other sites of this kind such as Adult Friendfinder. Once you upgrade, these features are unlocked.

Signing up and creating a profile only takes a few minutes. There isn't a great deal of moderation on the site -- you can complete your profile in stages, just entering the bare minimum to get started is enough. Your profile "completion status" is displayed at the top of the page.

You'll need to upgrade to view full size pics and unlock messaging.



All members can upload their own explicit photos and videos, some of which are showcased on the site's homepage. The photos alone are worth signing up to see. It's the video chat that allows you the chance to really see what others have to offer. Not surprisingly, other member's videos are "out of bounds" to free account holders.

Features

Profile searches are straightforward; you have several searching options: "Quick Search", "Advanced Search", "Who is online" and "New Faces". The advanced search is new, and lets you narrow down your list on things such as sexual interest, proximity, body type, languages spoken and more. Other features include:

  • Email and live chat
  • Advanced profile searches
  • Browse by state/country
  • Certified profiles
  • X-rated video and photo galleries
  • Webcam shows
  • Sex shop

There's also the option to see who's viewed your profile.

The Community

Fling's community is quite large - around 180,000 according to the latest estimates. This site attracts both singles and couples, as well as people who are in relationships but are looking for something "on the side". Single men make up a large percentage of the community (there are approximately 5 men for every woman).

There are usually at least a few thousands members online at any given time. The live chat tool is available to those with full access. Otherwise, you'll be diverted to the "upgrade now" screen on clicking a chat invitation.

Security

Fling has a number of novel security features which are welcome to see on an adult dating site. For example, they provide a "Safe Mode" which, when activated blocks any profiles containing sexually explicit content from your search results. They also provide an option that allows you to hide your profile completely, or to make your profile discreet, so that only those you invite to do so can see your pictures.

The site will also verify your photos, if you so choose. In this case, you will need to provide a photo ID as proof of identity. Verified photos are highlighted with a special certification icon.

In Summary...

Fling is a big site with a lot of activity. The main downside is that the guest account (free) are very limited. As there is no way to communicate or view other profiles, upgrading can be a "bit of a gamble". If you haven't hooked up with anyone in 3 months, they will let you sign up for 3 more months without paying.

Their mobile dedicated site, Fling.com Mobile is available especially for cell phone users.

The good

  • Massive community, members from most countries and states
  • Most user profiles and pictures are of decent quality
  • Member verification shows the site owners are serious about safety

The bad

  • Guest accounts: Free users can't communicate, view full size photos nor profile details
  • High ratio of men
  • Free members get hit with a lot of chat requests

    This site is good but you can't get anywhere on it without a paid account. Many users think that this is an issue, but really it's not. The people wanting to use it for free are just there for kicks and are not serious enough for the rest of us on the site.

    I once had a grandfathered account when the site first appeared opposite webdate back in 06 which means i had access to the whole site for free. Then after 4 years they decided to get rid of all the grandfathered accounts and have you pay...Before that the site was awesome now thanks to that you can't even check your mail and even tho they gave the grandfathered account a discount after the changes why should i have to pay? I feel like after all that time i put into that site they could at least let free members check their messages. I am so disappointed with fling.com.

    This site has seemed to sink to a new low. It created an account, linked to my email address and begun spamming for me acting as if I was the one who created the account. Until today I had never heard of nor visited the site. The age and zip code did not match me, zero information entered, and yet I still receive messages. The site does not have a "delete account" setting.

    Be warned: This site is now willing to engage in illegal activity to just get you to visit.

    Useless

    I gave this site a try the other night, and without realizing it, I could do nothing on it unless I paid. So within 15mins of looking around on the site I hide my profile. I didn't load up any pics on my profile, it had next to nothing. Today I have gotten 5 emails from fling. Two women wanting to be friends, two more sent me email (which I can't read). One wanting adding me as a friend. This site is a scam! I had next to nothing for a profile and get 5 emails the next day!?!? scam! Stay away from this site and don't give it any of your money! I'm glad I never did!
