So Sexy Peeps, Fab.Swingers went down for the entire afternoon and we had a huge influx of members.
Literally, one after the other - they rolled in.
Some registered with (of course) the usual dick pic avatars and some with green fields, but mostly a lot of boobies in bras suddenly joined the site....
Superb you must all be thinking! What an influx of members, especially couples and single ladies.
But here's the funny thing as spotted by another member earlier;
Single ladies aplenty joined, some with explicit avatars and some with suitable ones. We removed the unsuitable ones and asked for replacements; some duly obliged.
The others, well.... the others sat there looking at their account and then viewed this thread - How do I become a photo verified member?
Oops.
Yes, you have to be a photo verified member to even gain access to photos on this site let alone do anything else here! Like Fort Knox? Or just doing the right thing for swingers and this lifestyle?

Shortly after, as in within a few minutes of these accounts checking the PV thread, a load of "Can you delete my account" posts were coming in, emails followed too of course.

So the question remains; out of that mad lunchtime rush, how many of the single ladies who joined the site, were actually men looking for quick fixes and easy access to an open gallery of swingers' photos? All because a site they're on went down? Would a single female swinger, from this site panic in lunchtime and join our site in order to get a fix and view swinger photos?

We saw posts on Twitter - "this is my lunchbreak, am bored and fab.swingers is down, now what do I do".. so obviously people were bored and looking for their hits of porn and sexually charged images, but of what?
Fake single female swingers?
Fake swinging accounts?

Now I am not, for one minute saying that all single female swinging accounts on there are fake - not in the slightest, but as the "UK's largest swinging site" - which went down the entire afternoon today, how many actual - genuine single female swingers joined our site, who are just that: single ladies?

We've even seen posts today stating;
"Check out fab.swingers, I know other models who are on there and it's great for your pics"
Well that says it all. It's not a swinging site after all is it? It's a cheapened porn site using people as sheep, to sell the sex industry and make money.
Oh and by God do they make money. £1.5M last turnover. Not bad for a 'free swinging site'.
Not knocking the place of course, but makes you think about the reality of actual swingers, to members who just like porn and explicit images of other people...

We're here for swingers, we're here for the lifestyle and we're here to keep swingers within the lifestyle, safe.
Yes they have the numbers and you can keep at me all day long about that, but what they don't have - is your concern and privacy as number one.

They don't have your safety in mind. They don't protect you, in the same way we do.
I'd rather us be here doing this with 10k members, who are real swingers, real people which are enjoying this swinging lifestyle, than 100k who are mostly fake and catfish accounts.

If there's anything I can say about today's events?
Men will always join. Fact. Couples will too. But when single ladies who join - from there, and see our PV thread then ask to delete their accounts, then you must ask yourself; is this really what I want to be a part of?
To be led down the garden path for a laugh and pay the five pound's privilege.

I know what I'd do...
Welcome to Social Swinging. Not here to replace other sites, but to do what they can't; look after genuine swingers and their interests. x

Great article, really gives food for thought. We have used Fab for sometime now and never seen this angle that sadly makes so much sense .
Thank you. There’s so much that we’ve already said and more to be said about how things are done there. There’s no concern over members’ safety or welfare. It’s not a Swinging site anymore. It’s more a porn site. X
 
The panic is so sad, simply because they had no photos of porn to get off on for that hour..
It takes time for some to actually see what's going on around them and can too easily be in a position of complacency? It's frightening the scale of abuse, catfishing et al that goes on there. And people pay for the privilege. (n) Messy is an understatement, they'd have to tear it down and rebuild it to repair the damage. Which'll never happen. We're glad to have you with us! x

Welcome to my world where I can get over 18000 views a day.. Over 1000 messages in a weekend and 95%of them are unverified wasters...
It's a fab world..

I am from Fab. swingers and I am still here. But I have found this site a bit complicated to navigate around. I found the photo verification system challenging. It took me about 20 minutes to suss out. It was only because I am reasonably IT savvy. But not everybody is IT savvy and that is going to be a problem for future prospective members.

Thing is, it's like everything, we all have to get used to something new, when was on fab, I couldn't work it out for ages but soon got the hang of it. Same as FB and Twitter I guess, once you take the time and effort then it's all good x

I have been on this site since it started... And I agree.. It's complicated.. I still haven't come to terms with all of it... But unlike fab... There are very few fakes and those that are don't stay... I would gladly suffer the complexities of this site and the easier, less educated system on fab that attracts mindless idiots... However I use both sites because the volumes are not here yet.... Only a matter of time though

Agreed with @Pearls here @MatureGet50Plus - Acclimatisation is key here. We know it can be hard shifting from one to another, but as with anything - it just takes time. :)

@The_Bibas it will happen, it IS happening... 3 years? We're still a baby. Elsewhere has 10 years on us, which is massive. However, once you have taken the time to find your way around, it soon becomes second nature as you know. You do amazing; profile posts, threads, media, GIF's, videos, profiles and so on.. So you're a dab hand at this now. :) ;) x
 
I left fab xmas time after 6yrs.
Site had slowly got worse over that time.
Its to easy to join and as said make fake accounts.
It will ultimately crash and burn at the rate its going. : /..

It is definitely too easy to join and make a fake account.
 
One of the main reasons i left the other site is the level of abuse that goes on and thats mainly by the moderators who are left to do as they please and dont actually seem to answer to anyone.

What I cannot understand is why guys use it as free porn sites when there are plenty of free sites with amateur pics and videos on if they want a more authentic feel, even on twitter there is loads of free porn so if already on them why waste time trying to get on another site.

For me if I want porn I go on a porn website, if I want sex with an fb or threesomes or to find a new club I go to a swingers website.. dammit I think I just used more logic in that sentence than most of these men would use in a year :)

Incidentally I’m currently helping someone who is definitely feeling their worst side as of right now. It’s appalling and abhorrent what they’re doing to this person.
And there’s little support. But as they are also on here, then they’re getting extra support too.

You have got that right; it’s a free porn site and there’s not much being done about it. The genuine swingers have to go through a minefield.

Agreed re single guys or some anyway. It’s crazy there.

With abuse, this is why we’re so very proactive and have a zero tolerance approach to it.
Interesting post, thank you for writing it x

Most welcome! Its good they have support on here!
I tried to message what I thought were the site owners about an admin on a power trip sending abusive and nasty messages, I then got more nasty messages back from them and told ‘ha nothing will be done about your complaint as I see all those messages first’ so if the mod/admin dislikes you then you have no chance of getting any help from the owners.
