We understand how people would initially sign on as free members. But after a month or two, we expect them to have completed their explorations and then have paid a few bucks. No money and no pics all add up to warnings signs for us. The longer you're on the site, the more we expect you to have joined "in the fun". And that includes paying a very reasonable amount for dues. Everyone has to start somewhere and we want to "pay it forward" in thanks to those who reached out to us when we initially joined (albeit as paid members).

Typically the free members are a waste of time in our experience but we have met and played with one guy (free) on this site who was great. So it does happen.

We aren't so big on them because they immediately try to convince you to communicate with them off site and send your pics to their non SLS accounts.

That's why we're on this site ;-)

"allswell" glad you like. it's "public" domain brother, knock yourself out.

you know its funny but the fact is, our profile was a work in progress for about the first year we got in the lifestyle. it was basically a matter of sitting down after a few playdates and saying holy shit, we need a plan for that!

so it took a while, but we've tried to do the best we can to put the most important issues right out front. the "PLEASE PAS US BY IF..." just gave me a chance to say, "hey, these are the deal breakers." if any of these don't work for the other couple... we stop wasting everyones time. survive here and they get the cell number.

now for the other reason you we wrote. we're coming to town and need a place to stay! just kidding.

we would love to know where you guys had all those pics taken. obviously a clothing optional group event. the pics are beautiful, and the scenery is amazing. thinking maybe we need to take a trip there soon.

have a great weekend! james and kate

p.s. btw, the scenery wasn't really the only things we were admiring. you two look amazing as well.

when the TV show Swingtown came out, we blocked free members for a while b/c most joined out of curiosity rather than intent. I have noticed that the ones w/o ANY profile pics are almost always free members, and that's to their detriment.

like most things in the lifestyle, it's going to be a judgement call for you. for us, it also has a lot to do with why you are here, and what you are here for. those who are interested in playing more are more likely to be willing to work with free members, whereas, those who are a little less interested in the quantity of play may be willing to "shrink the pool" a little by blocking free members. but hey, we all "shrink the pool" for one reason or the other.

as with everything, there are exceptions to this idea (many of them will post here to verify this), but take it all with a grain of salt. when it comes to "free" members, we've met several very nice couples so we don't block them. we'll talk, but we're cautious

we did notice one poster mentioning the "no sex on the first date" rule. we thought it was a great idea too, until we found ourselves wasting perfectly good opportunities for sex! we're not retired, and we're not independently wealthy, so we work for a living. that means our opportunities for playtime are limited. we are NOT wasting time on rehearsals.

Honestly, for us, we've had just as much fun meeting freebies as we have paid members. I think its all about your screening process. It may take a little longer to sort through it all, but your 'perfect match' couple might be a free member. I know one of the best experiences we've ever had (and continue to have) was with a couple that were free.

In this economy, even 'real' people cant see paying money for a 'dating' site.

In our experience paid members have been more of a pain in the ass to deal with.

We had a free member contact us once with a well written email. We responded to them that we do not trust free members, especially ones with no pics or certs.

A week later they became paid members, uploaded pictures, and contacted us again, saying they did all that for us. As a bonus, they were also a hot couple. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. We never considered blocking free members again ;)
