Gay.com - membership base and the features
Gay.com has a large membership base. and is like a community gay portal. When we were online, early morning, USA Pacific time, over 15,000 people were online! Gay.com has sections on health, entertainment, travel, style, families, news, business & careers etc. Searching for profiles with pictures of gay men between 18 and 30 in New York city, we found hundreds of matches. You can view complete profiles of gay members even if you have a free membership. Next to each profile is mentioned whether the person is a free or a premium member. You can bookmark profiles or block them. You can also add people to your buddy list or hot list. Profiles can have some pictures visible to all and some 'private' pictures visible only to those, the member wants, show see them. Gay.com is clearly not prudish as they will let you pose in the buff and post your pictures. No restrictions there! The profile will be marked as 'adult' however and you can make these pictures 'private' so only a select chosen few can view them.
Searching for partners
Gay.com has a quick search as well as 'relationship' search, 'adult' search and search by member name. The relationship search lets you search on the basis of various criterion. Their adult search goes several steps further in asking you what you're looking for. They have members from all over the world but the bulk of members seem to be from USA, Canada and Europe.
