What is the #1 Swingers site in Canada?
We recently tried to answer this and looked at various lifestyle sites that are owned and operated in Canada to try and get an idea of who was the best and how they were affecting a positive view of being a swinger.
During our search we joined several sites and we came across one in particular that claimed to be the #1 Swingers site in Canada – this caught our attention needless to say so we proceeded to join and take a look around. What we found was a small site that didn’t have much in the way of activity or unique functionality… [quote]can you say disappointed! [/quote]We recognized the off the shelf CMS that was being used as we had seen it on a few other sites during our search and found it funny to see all of the sites with similar (if not identical) errors and navigational flaws.
We put this aside to try and find out why this site ownership was claiming to be the #1 Swingers Site in Canada and continued our look around.
We then came across a forum thread between a couple members arguing the point of the site’s statement of self importance. Three pages later and even after one member (who actually funnily enough had the username of another nearly identical site using the same CMS software as this one) posted a chart that clearly showed the statement to be wrong the site owner ( I am assuming it was the owner from the tone of the posts) still argued that their site was #1 in Canada. The owner had the belief that just because they wanted to be the best in Canada and there were some words written in the “about us” page saying the were the best (and largest) that made them just that – THE BEST!
I thought about this for all of 15 minutes before I knew I wanted to write about this specific claim. Lets break it down into a few facts – they claim to be the #1 swingers site in Canada yet world accepted ranking sites such as Alexa show them to be no where near that in Canada or even their own province! They also claim to be the largest site in Canada but you can do a very quick search and find dozens of sites with 10 times+ that amount of members. We also looked a little deeper thanks to one of our own favorite ways to see how we compare to other blogs and found that the traffic they do get from their membership is minimal at best and people don’t spend much time on them.[quote]So why write this blog post and why did this rub us the wrong way?[/quote]
All this does is try and deceive potential members and is a lie in the hopes of one day actually achieving this level of success. This goes against everything the lifestyle is about and what we have learned is against the ethics of pretty much every swinger or lifestyle couple we have met. We looked at what is the most popular and largest swingers community in Canada (again thanks to sites we use to gauge ourselves) and could not find one word about them being the best. No self accolades and no falseness – just them doing their thing and doing it well.
In closing I have consciously chosen not to name the site for two reasons – 1. I would be embarrassed as hell if I was them and 2. They do not deserve the link.
My account was deleted from this site and I will not be going back other than to see if they still live in the fantasy of being #1. Something tells me this site will be gone in the not to distant future.
