Try Fling

When it comes to online dating, it's difficult to parse out who's there for love and who's there for something casual and fun. If you're looking to find someone who isn't going to stick to you like glue after you've banged, then you should look to Fling for your next hook up.

Fling is an online dating sitea>, but I wouldn't go as far as to categorize it anywhere near dating sites like OK Cupid. It's more of a hookup app for people who might be open to relationships, which is funny because usually, sites are for people who are looking for relationships but are open to nonmonogamy.

Fling seeks to flip online dating on its head and be honest about what everyone's really online because they're horny.

So, I decided to deep dive into this site and see what they're really about. Do they follow through on their promise? Or is it just a waste of time? Keep reading, reader. Here's my review of Fling:

  1. First Impressions:

    My first impressions can be summed up in two words: holy shit. Usually, when you log into hookup sites, their front pages look less like porn and more like a romance novel cover. Fling's homepage, however, looks like the former.

    Right off the bat, I know that I'm in the right place if I'm looking for something dirty without any strings to get tangled up in. When you log in, there are pretty basic questions you have to answer: your age, gender, who you're interested in (and yes, couples are an option). You also are met with checkboxes of what you're looking for. And instead of “adventure buddy” you find things like “one night stands” and “experimenting” – whatever that's supposed to mean.

    This site isn't shy about what they're here for. Unlike Tinder which hides under the guise of being a dating app or sites that try to keep nudity off your computer screen, Fling doesn't care. Fling literally flings all the tits and dick pics you could ever hope for right at you.

  2. Features:

    Fling seems like your basic grid dating app at first. You can scroll down the enormous grid of men or women (and couples!), or you could try to refine your search for something more specific.

    In addition to the dating app, you'll find people going live on webcam on this site. Yes, it's essentially a dating app, and a cam site all rolled into one. Instead of highly paid porn stars, you're going to find amateur girls who are looking for attention (and coins) on this site.

    So, even if your arranged meetup with a girl falls through you'll have something to look at on Fling!

  3. Pricing and membership details:

    It seems that premium membership is free for female users. I like this because it keeps men looking for freebies off the site. When it comes down to it, there are tons of men using dating and hookup apps… and there's not even close to enough women to even out that ratio.

    Fling obviously is making sure that it's not a total sausage fest on this site by allowing women to sign up for free.

    With a premium membership you'll be able to chat, view other user's premium content (and by that I mean nudes and nude videos), and have your profile boosted!

    For the men, this membership is important because otherwise, you're not going to get a lot of matches or interaction out of this site, to begin with. I highly recommend upgrading if you're a male trying to use this site to fill your male needs.

  4. Pros:

    • Cam site!: Honestly, I love that there's a cam site built into this dating app. I think it further shows how honest they are about their intentions as a company. This site isn't trying to be some sort of classy matchmaking site; they're purely here for the sex.

      Plus, it's a great way for people to explore their sexuality through technology. Technology has become almost essential in the way that we date, masturbate, hookup, and have sex.

      If you're on this site to experiment with your sexuality, this is definitely a feature that you should try out!

    • Great filters: I like how specific you can get with your filters. You can filter by pre-set filters that the site gives you. Or you can type in your own search terms.

      With the combination of these two options, you're bound to find someone who's into the same stuff as you.

      There's no bullshit with the search terms; it seems that Fling wants to connect you with a suitable person as fast and efficiently as possible.

    • No nudity restrictions: If you're like me – and if you're considering joining Fling like I'm sure you are – then you've had photos removed from other dating apps. Despite being there for your sexual entertainment, A lot of dating and hookup apps have nudity restrictions on profiles.

      When you're looking to hookup, you're not hoping that anything gets left to the imagination. You want to see that other person's body. And they want to see yours. So why should there be censorship?

  5. Cons:

    • Paid interaction: As far as I'm concerned paid interaction sucks. Sure, you might think that it's entertaining for the time being… but is anything really going to come from it? Unless you're doing the paying, odds are you're going to get very little from a bot or a paid girl talking to you.

      I noticed that as soon as I made an account, I had profile views. I hadn't even uploaded a photo yet or filled out my bio, but I already had girls all over my profile… I – being the average person I am – sincerely doubt girls that looked as hot as they did would have very much interest in my five-out-of-ten ass.

      I mean they weren't hard to look at though…

  6. Conclusion

    At the end of the day, Fling is looking to help you find exactly what it says in their name: a fling. They're trying to help you get laid, find someone to sext with or help you experiment with your sexuality.

    They don't hide behind censorship, and they're keeping everything extremely sexy. And in my book, that's a total win for their subscribers.

    4/5 Stars
