Collarspace vs. Dating Sites
How does Collarspace measure up to different traditional dating sites?
Collarspace offers all of the perks of most dating sites, including Journal entries, detailed profiles, photos, and audio and video chat.
In fact, it's profiles are more extensive than most sites when it comes to non-sexual aspects, as well as allowing you to express your sexual preferences.
If BDSM is important to you and something you desire in a partner, Collarspace can allow you to find someone who is compatible.
It is a BDSM dating site, and like all niche sites, you'll find a smaller member base than on mainstream sites.
However, the members that are there stand a much bigger chance of being right for you since you both share an interest in the lifestyle.
Collarspace is a bit overwhelming. It has some great features. The userbase is friendly and kinky, and accepting of different sexual preferences.
However, the site itself is very outdated, and you have to browse through ten year old profiles.
