In the sea of online dating profiles, it’s definitely difficult to stand out and catch the right person’s eye. At the same time, there are a few tips we’d like to share with you today if you’re looking to create a killer BDSM profile. Whether you’re into transgender dating, have a shoe fetish or are turned on by buttons, we’re not here to judge. What we’d like to do is point you in the right direction, and outline several ways to create the most powerful weapon for attracting people for BDSM – your dating profile.

#1: Keep The Kink Brief

Stick to the point, state the kink you’re into, and the kind of partner you’d like to meet, but don’t go overboard by revealing every single detail of what you think should go down. Share this information once you’ve already found someone, and keep your profile brief and clear when it comes to fetishes and desires. Say if you’re into SSC, RACK, PRICK, or CCC, and say what role you identify as. This will be sufficient information to tickle someone’s fancy, and remain mysterious enough at the same time.

#2: You’ll Still Need A Great Photo

No matter the niche in which you want to find a partner, if you’re searching on dating sites or apps, you’ll need a killer profile picture, and no nudes, please. A full close-up of you in nice or casual clothes will do the trick and attract the right kind of attention. There is no need to post kinky pictures, and in addition to a photo closely featuring your face, make sure there is another one clearly showing your (clothed) body. This will send a signal to your potential dates that you’re serious about finding someone, and confident in your choices. On the other hand, if you’re not comfortable with flaunting your identity and sexual preferences on the internet, that is totally legitimate, and other honest users will understand.

#3: A Good Username Matters

You can opt to have a kinky username that will instantly attract sexual exchanges with other users, but that’s about it. Don’t put your real name either, unless it’s a really common one, and in general pick a username that you could use to introduce yourself to someone on the street. Think privacy and decency despite the fact that you’re creating a BDSM profile. Keep private things private until you get comfortable with someone in the offline world. Definitely no inches, cup sizes or numbers of sexual partners in usernames unless you want to offend potentially good dates.

#4: Honesty Is The Best Policy

If your profile is on a BDSM dating site, it’s quite clear where you’re coming from, which is perfectly OK. If you opt to open a kinky profile on a mainstream site or app, just throwing the words such as SSC or RACK in there will again make it pretty clear where your preferences lie. Nevertheless, don’t put any false information on your profile, lie about your height or age, or mislead people in any way. Nobody likes to have their time wasted, and you should simply make your profile with best intentions, like you would want others to do.
