What’s an Adult Social Network
Even though we often compare dating sites to bars and clubs, they are really more like singles’ nights. Adult Social networks sites are more like the parties you would go to in order to socialize with friends, relatives, colleagues, etc. You may well meet other singles there, but that is not an essential part of the experience.
Adult Social networking sites are often fairly similar in appearance to sex dating sites; many of them do actually offer some dating features, although often of the basic variety. These sites are based on the concept of expanding your social life outwardly through your friends. Many were inspired by the concept of ‘six degrees of separation’, that claims all the people in the world are connected to each other by a string of acquaintances numbering no more than five. Whether or not that is true, spending any time on a social networking site is likely to show you just how small our world is.
An Adult Social Networks site is hailed as the natural successor to dating sites and an alternative for people who wanted to avoid the stigma. Now that the online dating stigma is virtually a non-issue, it turns out that social networking sites exist in a niche of their own. Many members of such sites prefer to use them in order to stay in touch with existing groups of friends, rather than make new romantic connections.
In terms of online dating, adult social network dating can be useful for:
- Meeting people on the outskirts of your social scene.
- Meeting people based on mutual interests.
- Searching or browsing for singles based on simple age/sex/location criteria.

How an Adult Social Network works
You set up a profile in a similar way you would on a dating site and upload photos, etc. You can then start searching for friends and adding them to your list. These can be actual friends of yours, new people you want to get to know or your favorite band, celebrity or even politicians. Once connected to these ‘friends’ you can browse their friends and their friends’ friends, message people, post bulletins, comments or photos and so on.
Adult Social networking sites are generally free to use and are supported by advertising. They are usually moderated reactively, rather than proactively, meaning that members and their photos are not vetted at the time of joining. It’s up to you to complain about anything or anyone you find offensive and make the moderators take a look. Most social sex networking sites have an international membership, but when you search for singles, you can limit your searches to people in your local area. Profiles on an adult social network site are very similar to personal homepages and many people use them as a free, easy alternative to writing a personal website. Such profiles are generally more customisable than those on dating sites: you can change the background and text colour, add pretty pictures, music, etc. Because of the nature of these sites, it’s perfectly OK to upload pictures where your face isn’t showing. In fact, you can upload pictures that are not of you at all.
Unlike dating sites, where the preferred mode of communication is one-on-one, social networking sites are usually very public. Friends are openly displayed on each user’s profiles and people often choose to communicate by leaving public comments on each other’s pages.As a result, the whole thing looks a bit like a giant popularity contest, where people are encouraged to add more and more friends, collect public comments and befriend the many bands, artists and celebrities who are represented on the sites. To enhance their experience, members can form discussion groups and enjoy their own message boards. On the big sites there are thousands of groups covering just about every topic under the sun.
Sites such as The Book Of Sex have now become a bit of a social hub for their members, who use them to create a virtual space for keeping in touch with their friends. As a result, things can get quite cliquey at times, with people not being open to communicating with strangers. Unlike on dating sites, you cannot immediately assume that the people on a social networking site all want the same thing as you do. Many of the people who frequent the sites are already attached. Others may only be interested in meeting people they are directly connected to.
On most sites, users can specify what they are looking for (sex dates, net-working, dating, etc.). If you are running a search for people to talk to, make sure you include only people whose profile states they are interested in adult dating. Once you’ve done that, you can continue as if you were on a standard dating site. It is considered bad form to send a friend request to a stranger without introducing yourself first. Usually people will refuse the friendship request under such circumstances. The only exceptions are when trying to ‘friend’ singles looking for a good time and some casual sex encounters.
Many people have met and fallen in love after meeting on a adult social network. People use them for dating all the time. In general, they are mostly suited for the 18-45 age bracket, although the number of older members is constantly growing, you can end up having sex with a mature cougar or a young hot female.
