5/5

Passion.com is an adult dating site that has serviced its members since 1996. Passion.com is operated by Various, Inc. also known as FriendFinder Networks (FFN). FriendFinder Networks was founded in 1996 by Andrew Conru.  Conru received multiple undergraduate degrees from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, in economics and chemical engineering. Conru also received a Doctorate in mechanical engineering from Stanford University.

Conru initially designed FreindFinder.com with the idea of helping members find and connect with other members who shared similar activity interests. However, a few days after the website went live, Conru discovered that some of the members were seeking out other members to participate in adult activities, and posted nude pictures of themselves.  This gave Conru the idea of designing sites specifically for these kinds of adult activities. In addition to Passion.com, FriendFinder Networks also operates Adult FriendFinder, Senior FriendFinder, Amigos.com, BigChurch.com, and Alt.com. FriendFinder Networks claims that their websites are the most “heavily-trafficked” in the world. Their websites offers their members the ability to connect via social networking, online personals, live and recorded video, online chat rooms, instant messaging, photo and video sharing, blogs, message boards, and email. To this day, Conru continues to lead FreindFinder Networks as the CEO of the company.

Creating a Profile

Creating a profile on Passion.com is easy and only takes a few minutes to complete. After you indicate your gender and what you are seeking in a match, you must provide the following information:

  • Age and Location
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Body Type
  • Race
  • Marital Status
  • More About You:
    • Introduction Title: You must come up with a creative title for your profile.
    • Tell others about yourself: You must write something about yourself that you want other users to know about you as soon as they see your profile. If you are uncertain about what to write, Passion provides ideas.

The final step to creating your profile is to verify your email address. Once you verify it through your email, you have immediate access to your profile.

Passion.com allows the user to go as in depth as they want with their profile. They have additional tools that the user can use to share more information about themselves, such as:

  • Physical Information: Users tell other members what they look like.
  • Additional Questions: Users tell other members about their interests, fantasies, and more.
  • Purity Test: Users find out if they’re a sexual overachiever or a naughty newbie.
  • Manage Videos: Users view, update and sort their videos.
  • Get Confirm ID: Users verify their information with Confirm ID.

These are some of the additional tools Passion.com offers, to allow the user to share as much as they want about themselves. Passion also gives their members opportunities to create blogs and view blogs of other members. The blogs tend to be sexual and pictures of nudity will be displayed on some blogs.

Using the site

Passion.com is easy to use and maneuver. The tabs and layout of the profile make it easy to view matches and keep track of interactions amongst the users. On top of the profile you have access to your notifications and message center. You also have other tabs, such as:

  • My Stuff: Users have access to updating their profile and keep track of communication between them and other members
  • Community: Users have access to blogs, groups, magazine, bling, sex academy, and erotic stories.
  • What’s Hot: Users have access to the top hot members of the site.

At the center of the profile, the user is able to view other profiles and you can access live broadcastings by other members. The live broadcastings are typically sexual content. If you are a free subscriber, you will not have full access to other members’ profiles and will not be able to view pictures or videos that are “naughty”, as Passion blurs out these pictures and videos.

On the left side of the profile, the user is able to view their activity from the last 90 days such as, messages, friends, who they have flirted with, who has viewed them and who they have viewed, gifts and tips the user has received, etc. Passion also provides members opportunities of joining Member Groups where users are able to join discussions, find local events, and connect with others.

There are many limits a user has with a free account. To get the most of Passion’s services the user is required to pay a subscription. Otherwise, your ability to contact other members is limited along with viewing matches, and using all of Passion’s features.

Finding a Match

Passion.com makes it easy to find matches through multiple ways. On the very top of the profile, Passion provides the following tabs to be able to view members:

  • Online
  • New matches
  • Near you
  • VIPS

If you desire to search for someone specifically, then Passion uses the questions they use to determine the users’ gender and sexual orientation prior to creating a profile, as filter tools. Additional filter tools also include age range and distance or zip code, if the user desires to search for a specific age or location. These search filters make it possible for members to participate in sex dating with groups, people of multiple sexual orientations, couples, women and men.

Passion.com only allows a free member to view limited information of the other users’ profiles. If you do desire to view more, you can either pay a fee of $2.95 or upgrade to a paid membership. Passion.com also has a “What’s Hot” tab where you can view the “hottest” members on their site. This tab provides you access to the hottest photos, hottest videos, hottest albums, hottest members and top members.

Another recommendation for users to get matches is to post photos of themselves on their profiles. Doing so attracts more visits to their profile, and the ability to lock matches. Also, the more participation a member has on the site such as, creating blogs, broadcasting videos, etc. the more attraction their profile will attain. Members also provide insight as to who they are and what they are into when participating in such activities.

Accessibility

Passion.com is only available via the web. They currently do not have an app for mobile devices. If you wish to view Passion.com through your mobile device, you must do so through the device’s web browser. Viewing the site through a mobile device’s web browser is not the same as viewing it through the desktop version. The desktop version is very organized, hence making it easy to maneuver and use. The mobile version’s layout is not as organized making it a little hard to read and maneuver.

Safety

Passion.com reports that they do not conduct background checks on their members. Therefore, each member should use common sense when sharing his or her personal information with others. If members are found guilty of harassing or abusing other members, they will be banned from their website. Passion.com also encourages their members to report abuse or sexually explicit ads.

FriendFinder Networks, the parent company that operates Passion.com, reports that they do their best in protecting their clients by using firewalls. They also report that they have technical staff that work hard to secure the use of their services.

FAQs

Are profiles censored? Is there any limit to what I can put in my profile?

All member profiles must be reviewed and approved when they are originally created as well as when they are modified. Member profiles must abide by Terms of Use, which are available for review from the Terms of Use link on the footer of Passion.com.

Passion.com has the right to refuse any profile or photograph that they feel is inappropriate. Also, they ask that you do not put any personal information in your profile, including but not limited to: your home address, a personal beeper, cell or telephone number, a “real” email address or personal web address. Any repeat offenders of this rule will be banned from using the sites until such information is removed from their profile. Because this is a violation of the Terms of Use, repeat offenses may result in the termination of your accounts without warning or refunds.

Why does it say ‘Rate This Photo’ at the bottom of some photos?

Some members want you to let them know what you think of their photos. Click on one of the ratings next to the picture. Every time someone rates the photo, it affects the average score. If you want to turn on/off voting on your own photos, click ‘ Add/Edit Photos’ on your home page, then click on the photo you wish to update. You’ll be able to turn voting on/off for when viewing that photo.

If your profile was denied, it was most likely denied for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Containing personal contact information
  • Not meeting the minimum word count
  • Having repetitive or invalid content

  • The language used is not supported by the site

To restore your account, simply update your profile by going to the “My Account” page and click the “Basic Profile” link in the Profile section and alter the content to meet with site standards. Once you submit it, our team will review it again.
