Swingers Date Club (SDC) is a swinger site for couples and singles who are looking for threesomes, orgies, sex parties, and more. It’s one of the most established apps of its kind, having been launched in 1999, and currently boasts over 3,000,000 members.
When looking for a swinger app, it’s important that you find one which is not only easy to use, but which is reasonably priced, has a good user base of active profiles, and which is safe and secure to use.
To find out whether Swingers Date Club meets this criteria and more, my partner and I decided to test it out. We’re a couple who are looking for both local and national swingers opportunities, and we needed an app that would enable us to meet new people, find more sex parties, and learn more about the wonderful world of swinging.
In our Swingers Date Club review, we’re going to break down this dating app for you. We’ll be taking a closer look at its member structure, its cost and prices, as well as how it compares with other similar apps.

SDC (Swingers Date Club) Member Structure
Swingers Date Club claims that its app is used by over 3,000,000 people around the world at the time of writing. Of these, around 200,000 are active each week, while the greater majority (over 1,000,000) are based in the U.S. These are good numbers and compare competitively with rival apps.
Generally, couples make up around 50% of the user base, with singles making up the rest. Of these single profiles, a greater chunk is males who are looking for threesome and swinging opportunities.
In terms of sexual orientation, most users are straight but there are also a good amount of gay, lesbian and queer users. If sexual orientation matters to you, you’ll find that most profiles state exactly what they are and what they’re looking for. Indeed, the app is seen by many as a swing lifestyle app, and as such it’s very tolerant of all different types of users.
Age-wise, Swingers Date Club is used by anyone and everyone, young and old. While most members are aged between 25 and 45, there are still lots of users on either side of those age groups. For example, we encountered lots of 18 years old’s using the app, as well as lots of people aged 55+.
Signing Up On SDC (Swingers Date Club)
The signup process on Swingers Date Club is fairly straightforward but it will take a little longer than it does at most dating apps. However, you should be able to complete the process in 5 minutes.
Why does it take so long?
It’s because, unlike other swingers apps we’ve come across, Swingers Date Club has a series of questions that it needs you to answer before your profile goes live. These questions pertain to your sexual preferences, what you’re looking for, your current swing status, and so on.
You also need to state whether you’re a single or a couple.
However, while there are lots of fields to fill in, most of them aren’t mandatory, and you can just select “prefer not to say” if you wish.
Overall, we didn’t mind the signup process, and the questions certainly help when it comes to searching for other members. Once you’ve added some more stuff to your profile, including a photo, as well as verified your email address, your profile will be live. At this point, you can either take advantage of the 7-day free trial or upgrade your profile.
Making Contact On SDC (Swingers Date Club)
One of the downsides of Swingers Date Club is that there is no matchmaking feature. However, there is an advanced search option that makes it (fairly) easy to find what you’re looking for. Moreover, this search is free to use, and it lets you tweak your search according to filters like age location, and who’s online.
Once you’ve found someone you’re interested in, you need to upgrade your membership to a paying one to send them a message. This is par for the course for most dating apps these days. On the other hand, the chatroom is free to use, and it’s a great place for meeting new people.
That all said, making contact is far easier if you upgrade your account. You can just send someone a quick introductory message, and if they like the look of your profile, they will shoot you a reply back.
SDC (Swingers Date Club) Profile Quality
One of the things we look out for when testing swingers dating apps is how many fake profiles there are. Happily, there aren’t too many fakes on Swingers Date Club. As such, while you will encounter one or two, you won’t encounter many.
Other than that, we were pleased to see how detailed most of the profiles are. Adding at least one photo is mandatory, while many users pad their profiles out with a fair amount of information in the “About Me” section.
It should also be mentioned that there are three types of profiles on Swingers Date Club:
All profiles state explicitly what they are, most state what they’re looking for, and this generally makes it easier for you to contact the right people without wasting time.
SDC (Swingers Date Club) Real Life Review
My husband and I recently stumbled upon this app, and boy have we been enjoying it! SDC has worked for me and my partner at the time very well, met some great people we will never forget! Where ever I travel, I’ve found great couples and amazing singles to enjoy our night with. Not only are we able to connect with other people/couples in the lifestyle, we’re also informed of lifestyle parties and events. The app is user friendly and efficient! We definitely recommend it!
Design and Usability
From the homepage, it’s clear that Swingers Date Club isn’t just a dating app. Blog posts are plastered all over the homepage, while a menu bar at the top includes a wide range of tabs that include sexual health information and the SDC shop.
However, it’s not too hard to find the search function. Once you’ve performed a search, it’s then really easy to take a closer look at profiles and send messages. One thing we do like is the search function, as it allows you to search for swingers anywhere in the world at a click of the button.
Plus, it looks cool too.
Overall, the design is slick and user-friendly, and the site is very usable thanks to quick load time and easy navigation. We also like the color scheme, as well as how several features are lined up to the left of the screen.
SDC (Swingers Date Club) App
Like all the popular dating app, Swingers Date Club has an app. It’s available to download from the App Store for free.
As it’s still a relatively new app, there are still one or two glitches that need to be ironed out. However, what we like about it is that everything is explained to you as you go along. The app is very easy to use, it’s user-friendly and you can customize your profile.
It isn’t very different from the desktop version of Swingers Date Club. All the key features and hotness are there, and the content has been neatly adapted for mobile devices.

Is Swingers Date Club Expensive?
To answer this question, we thought the best thing to do would be to compare it to its nearest rivals, SwingLifestyle and Kasidie.
If you want to test the waters and subscribe for a month, to begin with, Swingers Date Club will set you back $25. For the same subscription length, SwingLifestyle is available for just $15, while Kasidie is priced at $19.95 for one month. As we can see, then, Swingers Date Club is the most expensive swingers app for a month’s worth of usage.
It works out more expensive if you lock yourself into a longer subscription, too. If you sign up for 3 months (as my partner and I did), Swingers Date Club will set you back $16 per month, while SwingLifestyle costs just $9.98 per month. Kasidie is even cheaper and costs as little as $5 per month for a 3-month subscription.
Overall, Swingers Date Club is by far the most expensive swingers app we’ve used. They also offer a lifetime membership which will set you back around $220. Moreover, there’s also a free 7-day trial available when you first sign up, and despite the high prices, Swingers Date Club offers plenty of bang for your buck.
For instance, Swingers Date Club is much more than just a swinger dating app. Premium members get access to webcam chat rooms, parties, contests, and much more. So while this site is pricey, it offers much more naughtiness than many other competitors do. It’s impossible to get bored using this dating site.
Swingers Date Club offers many special features, some of which are exclusive to premium members, but some of which can also be used by free members:
- Speed dating events – This feature allows you to cut to the chase and get chatting to several different swingers over an hour or so. It’s a lot of fun, too
- Blogs – You can read the erotic blog posts for free, but you must be a paying member if you want to post your own
- Videos – Paying members frequently upload their naughty videos, which other paying members can watch as part of their subscription
- Contests – Want to rate the sexiest couple on Swingers Date Club? Want to enter a contest yourself? You’ll need to upgrade your account but this is a very entertaining (and hot) feature
- Chatroom – Chat Rooms are accessible to all but only paying members can use them. They’re always busy, and they’re a great place to meet more like-minded people and learn about their different kinks and fantasies
- Voyeur cam – This rather naughty feature is exclusive to paying members and lets you watch couples in real-time have naked fun with each other
What Are The Better Options?
Swingers Date Club might be the best option for you – but it also might not be. To help you choose, we’re going to take a look at its closest competitors.
SwingLifestyle has been around almost as long as Swingers Date Club and therefore nails it on the reputability front. It’s a safe and secure, super-established swingers site that has amassed 16,000,000 members at the time of writing.
Like Swingers Date Club, SwingLifestyle is free to join but you can’t send messages until you upgrade your account. As we’ve seen, it’s cheaper than Swingers Date Club, while most of its users are in the similar age bracket (between 25 and 40).
It’s also another naughty app aimed at singles and couples who are looking for threesomes, sex parties, orgies, and any other kind of kinky sex encounter you can think of. Features are, however, more limited than they are on Swingers Date Club, although you can use the site to find swinging travel opportunities, as well as swinger clubs near you.
There are no live cam shows, contests, or anything else of that kind that makes Swingers Date Club stand out, though.
Overall, SwingLifestyle is a trustworthy swinger site that offers lots of potentials for you to meet up and have fun with other swingers.

Kasidie is similar to Swingers Date Club in that it doubles up as a community. Via private messaging and chatrooms, you can connect with fellow swingers, find sex parties near you, and have a great time getting to know like-minded people.
Kasidie is much cheaper than Swingers Date Club too, although it isn’t as feature-rich. You can use the app to find local events and parties, but there are no webcam shows, videos, contests, and so on.
We also think Swingers Date Club is better designed, while the fact that Kasidie has less than a million users around the world means it’s harder to find what you’re looking for.

Overall, we like Swingers Date Club. It’s a little on the pricey side of things for a dating app, but it’s full of features that turn it into more than just another dating site. Swingers Date Club is a great place to meet new people, learn more about the world of swinging – and have a lot of risque fun, whether that be in real life or just online.
