Initial review: 7/21/2010It's a gay dating site that advertises that it also provides access to some premium X-rated content, but what I found was that G Cruise is definitely delivers web personals, not just a glorified porn site. That's not to say that there isn't some explicit content available to those that choose to upgrade to a paid membership. However, that hardly represents the major purpose of joining.
It is super fast to post a free profile, because almost no info is needed. You need to wait for a confirmation email to verify your email address though. Then you can start browsing the profiles immediately. The localized searches are built right into GCruise interface, because members near you home location (U.S. zip code or city outside U.S.) are displayed automatically.
It is unclear how small, or large, that automatic search radius actually is. You cannot do free local searches for anywhere else you might be traveling to, because choosing another location is only available through paid advanced searches. Obviously, you could change your home location to get around this limitation though.
Some of our surfers complain about fake profiles and spam emails. Personally, I recognized genuine people from my local area. That doesn't mean that the issue isn't a real and common problem with this dating site and others in general. I just find that if you look users up often their profiles make it clear how real they are.
Now for what makes the site worthwhile the most. It has to be the live webcam chat room. There were plenty of real dudes on while I was visiting and you could see them all without having to have a cam yourself. You do have to be a premium subscriber to access the chat, send email, or access the instant messaging system. By the way, even "flirts" are limited until you pay.
As mentioned in the intro, they promise some X-rated stuff too with your subscription. You'll find 14 gay feeds and three tranny ones. There are also live cam links that of course require paying extra for private chats. There are about 1,000 user-submitted videos too. You can't see them without upgrading, same with erotic stories posted by fellow members.
Apparently, the site gets quite a bit of traffic, despite offering little free access. However, because you really need to pay to play that doesn't mean all visitors are active members and many folks might be unable to reply to your messages even if you upgrade. G Cruise might be worth a free gander to see how popular it is in your area, but you'll need to pay to get anything very worthwhile out of the experience.
