Initial review: 3/1/2011When I think of a relationship being passionate, I tend to imagine all-consuming romantic love. Now I'm not saying that you won't find that on Passion.com, but I'm pretty sure that the aim here is more for lustful hookups. I mean with the pics of sexy girls, one cute couple and a shirtless dude on the splash page, not to mention, a female member's testimonial mentioning how she chatted about sexual fantasies all night then went for drinks and hooked up with the guy the next evening.
Now Passion.com is part of a major online dating network that includes Adult Friend Finder. You'll see on our review that there are some negative comments regarding the authenticity of some of the profiles and the company's stance is that they only ask for a valid email address when you sign up, so they can't make any guarantees. Personally, I think that although some profiles are old and inactive, you'll still find plenty of real people.
Also although some live cams have paid performers, they're housed in a clearly labeled separate section. I'm not sure why you'd bother with them, because the explicit member webcams show nudity and masturbation and are probably one of the best reasons to join. Granted there are more male exhibitionists than there are female ones, but you'll still get an eyeful whichever way you swing. Access has limits before upgrading, yet I am more than satisfied with what I can see without paying.
What is less satisfying is that although you can do free local searches in the U.S. by zip code and by select cities in the U.K., free members can only see very limited numbers of profiles. Premium subscribers can pay an extra fee to make their profiles accessible to all and if your own profile is very popular, you may earn special viewing privileges. One more thing that I should mention is that for our Canadian surfers, you're limited to only province-wide results until you upgrade.
Now there are loads of extras that you can enjoy with some limits before you buy a membership, including blogs, an online magazine with user-submitted articles and chat rooms. One thing that I feel is done right by this network of sites is that there's always a sense of community. You can also "go local" so that your browsing brings you content from people in your area.
They get lots of visitors here, so you can't fault them on their popularity, even if that doesn't mean everyone who comes to their pages sticks around and actively participates. Passion.com seems worth a gander, even if you're just looking to see amateurs getting naughty on cam.
