The Best Forums for Bondage Enthusiasts

0

Looking for an online forum to network with other bondage enthusiasts?

One of the best things about the internet is the ability to connect with other people to share information and resources as well as build networks. Whilst many of us are happy to conduct our BDSM lifestyle in small and discreet circles, the online community offers a way for us to be anonymous and to explore new ideas and hook-up with other like-minded bondage enthusiasts.

In this guide, we take a look at some of the best sites for people interested in bondage who want to take an active part in the online BDSM community.

The Bound Forum

www.boundforum.com

We kick off our list with The Bound Forum, a really informal and non-threatening place for kinksters with a taste for all areas of the BDSM lifestyle. The site is designed to be less ‘in your face’ than some bondage sites and is heavily text orientated. Without overt imagery and gifs, this can make it easier to browse the site whilst in public or where your screen might be observed.

The forums are indexed in a traditional and easy to navigate way with Bondage and Self Bondage each having their own category. Both are well posted to and have an active following of users. The former has over 3000 topics and 38000 posts whilst the latter has around 2000 topics and almost 30000 posts.

The site has a small but dedicated membership with around 60-80 people online at any given time from a member base of 12,238 people.

The Bound Forum covers a wide range of kinks and has a story section for budding authors or readers to really embrace their fantasies; some of these are very good and are well worth a browse.

The site is free to join.

Fetish

www.fetish.com

The ‘kink positive BDSM community for fetish dating’, Fetish.com is a popular social community whose main aim is to connect people. However, the support network for the dating side of the site also offers some great features including forums, event listings and news.

The Fetish Forum has several subcategories including a general BDSM forum which pretty much covers most things bondage. Posts get responded to quite quickly and activity is frequent but with a manageable level of active readership.

The site is free to sign up to and you can access the forum without a paid membership; the dating side of things will attract subscription charges.

An easy to use site, members are active, generally welcoming and no more than the usual negativity that you can experience on free to register forums. Be aware that there is a lot of spamming in some of the forum pages with ads being the biggest gripe.

Members share plenty of pictures on the site which is also a bonus.

BDSM

www.bdsm.com

BDSM offers a rich and varied community experience with over 32,000 groups to join offering more than 2.1 million discussions. There are bondage groups arranged by special interest and kink as well as by location meaning that you should be able to find one that suits you.

Membership to BDSM.com is free but each group has their own moderator who usually approves requests to join a group. You are often required to add a brief note about yourself when you initially join a group but most groups accept new members as standard.

Other features of the website may only be available on a paid subscription basis but the forums alone are worth signing up for as well as the news, information and blog pages.

iTaboo

www.itaboo.com

Ranked at Number 6 by Ranker as one of the Top Ten BDSM Social Networks, iTaboo is an online community of fetishists and kinksters. The site is free to join and requires only basic information and an avatar to establish a profile.

You can use the Fetish categories to find like-minded members with bondage enthusiasts representing a good proportion of other users.

The discussions and groups aren’t as active as some other sites and not every area is as well represented as some. Certainly the groups can be a little ‘cloistered’ and may not be for everyone; however, iTaboo does offer a discreet environment for connecting with others and may just appeal to those people who prefer a smaller discussion group.
