The first impression we form from AussieBDSM.com is quite positive. Its initial page seems to offer a lot of good reasons to sign up here. It claims a dedicated support team that verifies all new members to prevent the creation of fake accounts. It also promises subscribers will have the opportunity to join local parties and events, where it should be easier to find open-minded people ready for transgressive encounters.
Finally, users can also read real stories from actual members and share their kinky experiences. Those who have never tried BDSM before will probably learn a lot from the members’ blog. All in all, AussieBDSM.com seems a great choice to start exploring this naughty world. We're sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but this dating platform is just a scam.
Here is what we read in the terms and conditions
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
What does this mean?
The Irish operator from Dublin, Arnaze Online Ireland Ltd, admits creating fake profiles to test the quality of the service. There's nothing wrong with this as long as these accounts are clearly marked as fictitious, so users realise they are not talking to real people. Unfortunately, this doesn't happen. The moderators that hide behind these fake profiles adopt fantasy characters. By doing this, they lure users into buying paid membership, without which the communication tools are disabled.
Since real profiles cannot be distinguished from fake ones, nobody can be trusted on AussieBDSM.com. The chances of meeting someone in real life are extremely low.
One more reason not to sign up
Those still tempted to try their luck with this platform should bear in mind that the company operates an automatic renewal billing policy. All subscriptions are extended indefinitely unless cancelled by the user. In the terms and conditions, we read that cancellation can be easily effected by simply submitting a ticket to customer service. Nothing is mentioned in relation to the notice required. We don't have any proof, but this sounds a lot like a subscription rip-off. To avoid any risk of losing money, we strongly advise against purchasing paid membership here.
