Out Personals gets a large number of visitors to its pages. It comes from the same people that are behind Adult Friend Finder and so the popularity isn't that surprising, because they really know how to market their Web personals. However, if you read some of the surfer comments on our review of that other site, you'll see some negative as well as positive feedback. Personally, I think that this site excels in extras before you upgrade, but doesn't do so well with dating features before you pay.
For example, after you've created a free profile on OutPersonals, you can do local searches by zip code in the U.S. and by a dropdown menu of select cities in the U.K. Unfortunately for other countries, you are limited to searching broader regions, so in Canada for example, we're talking province-wide results. You also can only see a very limited number of profiles unless you upgrade.
Some premium subscribers pay extra so all members can see their full profiles (viewing photos is still limited) and initiate contact with them. These special profiles aren't labeled in any way though. It is also possible if your own profile is very popular with other members that you will be given access to checking out 50 profiles and that's a much larger number than ordinarily a nonpaying member would see.
Now it is free to reply to messages from paid members, although this feature like many others accessible before paying does have some daily limits. Still, you'll get a real feel of community here through reading the blogs, the online magazine with user-submitted articles or participating in chat rooms.
My favorite feature though has to be the explicit amateur webcam shows put on by some exhibitionist members here. You will see loads of naked men stroking their tools and if you're patient you may even see a money shot in some cases. You can also see male-on-male couples and transsexuals as well as possibly bisexual couples (women with bi men) and groups. You don't need a webcam of your own to participate either.
I know that some people like dating sites, because they can be a source for amateur porn. I definitely think that although you won't see many guys' pics without paying and can't view member vids either without upgrading, the member webcams give you more than an eyeful.
If you're serious about dating, there's no debating that you'll probably need to invest in a paid membership to be successful here. However, Out Personals is a fun place to visit, if you just want to ogle some dudes on webcam or read interesting and diverse posts from other people.
