To sign up for Collarspace, you’ll select a username and password. You’ll also enter your email address and location. Next, you’ll enter your gender, orientation, sexuality, age, and ethnicity.
You can also enter your height, weight, and who you are seeking. Options include dom, submissive, or switch male or female, trans, roommates, or couples.
You’ll be asked whether the profile is for an individual or couple as well. If it’s for a couple, you’ll need to enter the basic information for the other member as well. You’ll also write about yourself and what you are looking for and add a profile photo.
You’ll see 12 interest categories and one skill category. These include Adventure, BDSM, Intellect, Spiritual, Sports, and more. Each category will have many interests.
For each interest, you’ll select your level of interest. Options range from live for it to hard limit. You’ll also select your level of experience for each interest. It isn’t required that you fill out this section, but it can help you connect with members who share your interests.
You can search for users by choosing profiles. Enter in your preffered search criteria and conduct a search. Unfortunately, profiles aren’t deleted due to inactivity, so you’ll likely see profiles that haven’t logged on in years. However, the last login is displayed, so you don’t waste your time with people who aren’t on the site.
When you find someone that you like, you can add them to your favorites, add them as a friend, send them a message, and read or follow their journal. Messages can be text and/or photos, and you can send instant messages if they are online.
Journals can be audio, video, or text. In addition to viewing journals from profiles, you can browse journal entries and create your own. You can also read and particpate in the message boards. You’ll find discussions on a wide variety of topics. You can participate in video and text chatrooms as well.
You can also select your mail preferences. This is a great option for women who can get lots of unwanted messages. Filter by age, location, those without completed profiles, and dominant or submissive. Mail from members that don’t meet your preferences will be sent to your bulk mailbox.
Collarspace is a bit overwhelming. It has some great features, including video chatrooms and audio and video journals. However, the site itself is very outdated, and you have to browse through ten year old profiles.
