Our Review

Founded in 1996, TSDates is a US-based dating site for members of the third sex, or more popularly known nowadays as the LGBTQ+ community. Although it specifically targets this audience, it still welcomes all kinds of people from all walks of life. Whether you are a straight man or woman curious about the trans world, or a couple or group wanting to experience the joy of their companion, this site is the perfect place for you.

Clearly, the site has made its cut above the rest. It is available in almost all countries and with over 88 million members worldwide, it boasts of having all the features you need to experience adult dating at its finest. You might get overwhelmed with its content at first, but there's nothing to worry if you're really into sexual fun and excitement. 

TSDates is another one of the successful dating platforms of Ventnor Enterprise along with Alt.com and Adultfriendfinder. Offered in many different countries, it is for over 20 years now one of the leading providers of adult pleasure to all kinds of people.

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out
  • Specific target group is the trans community (TV, TS, TG)
  • Over 88 million members worldwide
  • Approximately 100,000 UK users online every day
  • Most users are 30 years old and above

TSDates boasts of having over 88 million users worldwide. This isn't hard to believe as the site has been around since 1996. For almost over 20 years now and still counting, it gains more and more visitors and followers each month. In fact, SimilarWeb estimates that it has almost around 3 million monthly visitors.

Based on our research, most users are transvestites, transsexuals, and transgenders hailing from the LGBTQ+ community. However, although few, the proportion of straight men/women and coupe/group is still relatively high if we are to look into the whole local member population. This means that it's an essentially popular dating site across all genders.

Signing Up

TSDates Registration
  • Registration is fast and easy as you need not undergo a personality test
  • You don't need to immediately upload a display photo
  • Has a strict verification process and other safety verification methods
  • You can register either as a single individual, a couple, or a group
  • No immediate match suggestions upon signing up

Signing up for TSDates is fast and easy. You only need around 1-2 minutes to complete the process. You can sign up as a:

  • man or a woman
  • couple (straight, lesbian, gay) or group
  • trans (transvestite, transsexual, transgender)

After that, you'll have to indicate what or who you're looking for, whether:

  • men or women
  • couples or groups
  • trans (transvestite, transsexual, transgender)

You'll just have to answer a few personal questions thereafter before you can proceed to the last stage which is the verification process. Likewise, you need to tick their disclaimer box saying, "By registering on TSDates, I certify I am at least 18 years old and have read and agree to its Terms of Use and Privacy Policy and consent to the use of Cookies."

A message link will then be sent to your email to complete the process. You may not proceed with the site without doing this last step. Your account won't be considered active unless you click the button link sent.

Upon clicking, an upfront offer of the site's premium (Gold) membership will be shown to you. You will also receive a message from their customer service welcoming you to the site and laying down some useful instructions on how to use it. 

Making Contact

TSDates Search Options
  • Offers both free search and contract proposals
  • Displays members who are online and on IM
  • More advanced filters available for Gold members
  • You can search by country or city if you want to
  • There is a chatroom

Because of its wide array of features, contacting any member through any form is possible on TSDates. Communication may be via private messaging (email type), instant messenger (IM), or chatrooms. However, just like any other dating platform, you need to be a full member before you can experience private messaging at its finest.

No worries if you aren't ready for any interaction yet. You can send a flirt for only £1.00. If you're not into private messaging, you may also opt to just join private chatrooms for as low as £6.95 per month. To maximise this experience, you can choose the 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month plan. This is one of the special features that you can specifically purchase without availing the Gold membership.

Another impressive feature of TSDates is that you're given three chances each day to send messages via Instant Messenger (IM). Be careful, though, in choosing who to chat. There are members who won't reply and there are those who will. It's quite difficult to play with this game of chance if you're not good enough in picking the right person to chat with.

Profile Quality

TSDates Female Profile View
  • All primary photos are available on display for all members
  • Full profile viewing requires Gold membership
  • A profile preview is available for standard members
  • There seem to be only a few fake profiles on the site
  • Profile information is divided into several informative sections
  • The profiles are very detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Introduction, general information, kinks, and compatibility chart may be completed later.

This is the only service where the site lacks generosity. While you may interact with others via chatrooms without paying for anything, you may not view the profile of anyone if you are not a Gold member. There is a preview available but you may not be able to see a specific member's complete information as well as all of his or her photos.

The only time you'll have a chance to see a member's full profile for free is when that member interacts with you. For instance, a trans person has flirted with you, you are allowed to check and view his or her full profile but not all of his or her photos. This is the platform's strategy to make you avail of their gold membership and get the best out of their most important functions like private messaging and profile viewing.

To edit your profile or manage your account, you can go under the "My Stuff" tab and start building your profile there. Two of the profile-related sub-categories are:

My Profile

  • Profile - lets you view your own profile the same way as others see it
  • Photo Album - a collection of all the photos you have already uploaded
  • Videos - where you can see all the videos you have already shared
  • Questions and Answers - a list of questions you may answer to increase the probability of finding your perfect match (most of the questions are about your sexual preferences and experiences)
  • My Blog - where you can share stories, long posts, and other write-ups (this allows other members to know more about you)

 Edit Profile

  • Update Profile - a guide on how far have you already updated your profile (a profile that reaches 100% progress has the chance to be more popular)
  • Upgrade Account - gives you a list of the paid services and how much each plan costs
  • Edit Preferences - includes privacy settings, content filters, message center, notification, cupid preferences, etc.
  • Manage Account - where you can change your email, username, billing history, etc. 

The site suggests that you complete your profile up to 100% to gain more popularity and earn some free points. You can use such points to have limited access to some of the paid features.

Real Life Review

"It was in 2015 when I joined TSDates. I and my six-year girlfriend just broke up then. One night, while I was browsing over the web for some adult sites (as recommended by my friend), I discovered TSDates. Honestly, I thought at first it was a porn site. But when I opened it and registered, I got surprised that it was a dating platform. The site is nice but quite overwhelming. It has so many special offers but the one I enjoy most is the adult movies. In terms of dating, this site quite opened my mind to new experiences. I was once straight but know I'm bi-curious and consistently loving and enjoying it." - Morgan, 36

Design and Usability

When it comes to design, TSDates is pretty simple yet colourful. It has a white background with blue, red, and black fonts. It also has many shortcut links that take you to your desired page in an instant. Text boxes are everywhere, and your account homepage is quite overwhelming. But if you're used to using social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, you won't have any problem navigating the site.

Note that the platform is an adult site. Therefore, you're going to witness plenty of different adult contents once you're in. There are nude photos, sexy preview videos, and lots of porn advertisements. There's no need to worry if you don't like seeing these contents, however. You can always filter your pages' contents to "no nudity," "some nudity," and "everything." You can find this setting by clicking your username at the top-right portion of any page.

With regard to usability, the site functions very well. The pages load quickly and all the links seem to work just fine. Again, you might find the site overwhelming once you register but it doesn't take so much time before you can completely learn how to navigate it fully.

Is TSDates expensive or cheap?

In comparison to other providers TSDates is expensive.

TSDates Price
Payment Options
  • Credit Card
  • Direct Debit
  • Cash
  • Cheque
  • Via Mobile Phone

What's pretty impressive about TSDates is that you get to access many different features even without a paid membership. Although if you are a Gold member, you'll surely get the best out of it. The price might be a bit expensive compared to other dating platforms but it seems to be worth availing.

You need to be careful in purchasing the right plan, though. The website offers various kinds of paid features. Gold is the main premium but it has other different mini-offers. Here's a more detailed view of these paid features you can purchase individually:

Points

This gives you access to many special features like the following:

  • bidding on your favourite members so you can be their top fan
  • sending Tips and Virtual Gifts to your favourite users
  • enjoying live member broadcasting more than once (but still limited - as long as you have points, you'll be able to view broadcasting members)

Search Highlights

TSDates is a big place so you need to ensure that your profile is popular among all users. To stand out from the crowd, you can avail of this plan and get noticed first in search and browse results. Your email address will appear highlighted in attention-grabbing colours.

Adult Movies

This paid service gives you a complete and unlimited access to 2,000 different adult movies. Rest assured that you'll get high-quality streaming videos.

Private Chatroom

The private chatroom lets you host your own chat party. It's completely private as you have the option to secure entrance by inputting a password. You can invite as many guests as you want and you can switch between making or joining private and public chatrooms. There are only a few things you need to remember.

  1. Don't use the same password for your TSDates account and private chatrooms. This might enable others to have access to your account.
  2. Only those people who have your chatroom password will be able to enter the chatroom.

Once you have already created your private chatroom, your profile page will show a button which is the link that your friends or visitors may click to send them in the private chatroom.

Gold Membership

The Gold membership, will, of course, give you access to all the paid features of the site. It might actually be a better idea availing of such instead of purchasing bits of the paid services.

Aside from that, the Gold membership allows you to receive immediate priority customer service and technical support via telephone or email. Upon need, the company will call or send you a message within 12 hours. Compared to free members, they need to wait for at least 2 days before they can get a response.

Note as well that even if the Gold plan allows you to unlock all paid features, standard members may not contact you. You can only communicate with other Gold members. If you want standard users to be able to connect with you, you need to avail of their additional "Standard Contact" option. This will enable all users, whether free or paid, to interact with you. Just tick the box beside the "Selecting this will allow free members to see your full profile, message and chat with you anytime." statement and you're good to go.

Special Features

TSDates has special features that are likened to that of Facebook. If you have witnessed the peak of Friendster and Multiply, you might also find it somehow similar to those sites.

Here's a preview of the numerous special services the site offers once you become a member.

Account Homepage

Yes, indeed, even your account's homepage is already bombarded with a good deal of special features. These include:

  • Shortcuts to other pages  - e.g. Top Fans, Testimonials, Hotlist
  • Update status - a textbox where you can type in and post what you're doing or feeling at the moment
  • Last 90 days - a list of your most recent activities 
  • Other dating sites - a list of the company's other adult dating sites you may want to visit
  • Broadcast Status - a preview of those who are having their live broadcasts at the moment and how many are they
  • Search preview tabs - lets you check who's online at the moment, your new matches, members near you, and VIPs
  • Members Activity - somewhat similar to Facebook's News Feed where you can like and comment on the posts of other members (if you have points)
  • Live Model Preview - a preview on the side of live models doing nude live shows

My Stuff

From the word itself, this is your personal space. This is where you have all the power to utilise the site according to your preferences. Some of the subsections here were already provided above.

The most exciting services included in this tab are the "Top Fans," "Hotlist," and "Gifts and Tips" features. 

  • Top Fans - gives you a list of members who have shown their admiration to you and spent points to become your fan. You can message all of them and earn points from their bids.
  • Hotlist - allows you to keep track of all the hottest members on the site. Once you have encountered a profile, you can add them on your Hotlist so you'll get updated with their activities. You'll also find under this tab those who have added you to their Hotlist.
  • Gifts and Tips - gives you a list of all the gifts and tips you have sent and received.

There are so many categories and sub-sections under this tab. Once you have signed up, you can see for yourself what more the site has to offer. 

Search

This feature allows you to look for members in different ways. Such ways include:

  • Who's Online
  • Who's on IM
  • New Matches (divided into two: members that meet your criteria and recommended members found to fit your taste through a modification scheme)
  • Members Near Me
  • VIP Members
  • Hot Or Not (a game where a picture is shown to you and you get to choose "hot" or "not" depending on your taste)
  • Advanced Search
  • Kink Search (based on your sexual preferences)
  • Browse (lets you look for those who are in other cities/countries/continents)
  • Username Search

Live Action

This feature is all about broadcasting, live shows, and other forms of video entertainment. In here, you can view the following:

  • Live Models
  • Live Member Webcams
  • Top Broadcasters
  • Adult Chatrooms
  • Instant Messenger

Live cams let you see models or other members who are doing some live shows (nude or not) at the moment. They also call it "broadcasting" which means that anyone may watch the show.

Adult chatrooms let you pick a room either by geographic region or by a topic of interest. 

Community

This is where you will find these very special features:

  • Blog - lets you reveal yourself to the world. When other users check your blog, this allows them to know more about you. If you're lucky enough, this might even be a way to have them interact with you.
  • Groups - allows you to form and join local or topical (international) groups to meet people who have the same taste as you. You can participate in discussion boards, polls, chatrooms, etc. 
  • Magazine - is another writing service of TSDates. In here, you'll find advice, tips, guidelines, information, and stories submitted by other users. You can add your comments and participate in polls.
  • Blings - are small icons that show off your personality. You can add them either on your profile or your blog/group posts. They are either created (by you) or received as gifts from other members. If someone uses your bling, this gives a boost to your popularity. This means that more people are being led to your profile.
  • Sex Academy - is an institution type of feature. Through it, TSDates offers courses about erotics, love-making, and sex in general. Such courses improve your sex skills, making your sex life more successful and one of a kind! When you complete a course, you get to have a badge attached on your profile. This will let other members see that you're now a sex expert.
  • Contests - allows you to vote for your bet when there is a contest. Usually, contests are about sexually related "who have the best..." pictures.
  • Erotic Stories - is a feature that is free for everyone. It consists of different stories you can read during your spare time.

What's Hot

This feature lets you see the following:

  • Hottest photos
  • Hottest videos
  • Hottest albums
  • Hottest members
  • Adult movies

Adult movies, literally, are movies that you can enjoy watching. You need to be a Gold member to get access. However, the site also offers an individual purchase for it. You can check the table we have provided for the prices for each plan.
