Welcome to the Fetish.com Press Area

Welcome kinky press people! Want to get to know us better? The ‘About Us’ will tell you more about our kinks and what we want to achieve with our kink-positive dating community. For more, catch up on what other kinky sites have been saying about us by heading over to the 'In the Press' section.

Fetish.com Consensually Bares it All

We’re all about pushing boundaries but also consent - keeping it as kink-positive and open-minded as possible. As a member of the press, you're likely to share our vision for spreading knowledge and getting people connected. So go on, take a closer look.

If you’re looking to write a story on us, we’d be happy to answer your questions. We also feel it’s important for people to make up their minds about what they do and don’t like. To help you learn all of the kinky things about Fetish.com, we’d like to offer you a free three-month membership to conduct your research. Simply send us a valid press ID or other proof of your journalistic work after you've signed up. Don’t forget to include your username.

Practice makes better. If you don’t have the story you want after three months let us know, and we’ll extend your membership for an additional three months at a 25% discount. And if you do get your story done in the first three months, send us proof of its publication we’ll give you another three months for free.

Please respectfully and consensually poke around as much as you want, and ping us with any questions.

Keep it kinky!

For some, fetish and kink can be a dark world of mysterious dungeons filled with latex covered dominatrixes, unidentified objects going into places you never thought possible, and people lining up to get trampled on. We could go on, but you should have a look around for yourself. While all this is part of the fun, there’s more to it than all that — a lot more.

Our alternative lifestyle can only exist because of one thing: trust — a profound and honest truth. The backbone of a healthy community is always trust. An open mind can see the truth and discover it happily. Nothing is taboo here; everything is safe to talk about and share — consensually of course. That’s the other part of trust — consent and the safety that comes with it.

Today dating is all about left and right swipes, quick fixes and endless questions or dick pics. On Fetish.com we want to slow things down a bit. Get to know you and your kinks. Allow you to express yourself in all your kinktastic glory so you can find the right person or people in a safe place with no fear of judgement.

It all started back in 2004, with a band of German brothers: David, Julius and Robby. The brothers saw a hole that needed filling - free dating websites were hard to come by back then. So they created a dating community called Poppen.de The first year saw 100,000 members register, proving to the brothers they were on the right track. As popularity grew, so did the site, adding new features and different types of paid memberships, but always keeping the basis of a free dating site.

Five years later, Poppen.de was booming as one of the busiest websites in Germany. As the company grew, so did their reach into other markets and partner sites. New features and benefits increased as well. Soon members were able to enjoy text and video chat. As numbers continued to rise, they started working on new ways to process large amounts of incoming data and ensure security for their members. By 2012 Poppen reached three million users! At this point, smartphones had taken over, so naturally, member benefits expanded to versions for mobile devices.

In 2017, the brand spanking new version of Fetish.com strutted its kinky stuff for all the world to see. With the focus to build a strong kink-positive dating community and provide content that educates vanillas and thrills kinksters while breaking down taboos about the mysterious and beautiful world of kink and fetish.

Fetish is about being who you are and surrounding yourself with safe, fun and trustworthy fetishists to enjoy the pleasures of kink. It’s about discovery and finding what makes you happy, sexually or otherwise. No matter what you’re into, there’s someone for everyone on Fetish.com. So try us out for free and together we can build a kink-positive world!

Keep it kinky!

The Fetish.com team
Not only are we kinky, but we’re also nerdy (yes, geek kink is a thing). We occasionally send out surveys to our members to find out what everyone is up to in their own kinktastic worlds. If you need some information for a story, let us know and we can nerd out over kinky stuff.
