What you'll find when you login to Fling.com Australia

Picture-wise, Fling.com can be a bit overwhelming due to all of the explicit photos that are on there. Being NSFW, you should probably be careful where you open it! Most singles will be looking for casual dating, one night stands and hook ups... so the type of profile photo is understandable. With 50,000,000 members all over the world, you're bound to find someone quite fast - especially in Australia!

There are also certainly a lot more men on Fling than women... however this is a common trait on a lot of dating sites. There is also a special team behind the scenes trying to filter out any potentially fake profiles... however, we'd still advise that you examine each profile carefully to be on the safe side!

So what sort of people use Fling?

Everyone Fling is looking for a bit of action, and that is quite clear from the very beginning from the moment you login. All of the features are geared towards this (for example, the "Who's cute?" game works quite well in this regard...). So you'll definitely have a good start!

The age range is quite diverse with both women and men being around 33 and 34 on average (though there are plenty of younger members).

Prices on Fling

Singles on Fling.com can set up their profiles for free. However, in order to get the best use out of the site it's best to become a premium member. There are also webcams, however these appear to link to a different site. Subscriptions also vary depending on how long you want to be a member for as well.

Fling.com is a great adult personals / sex dating site with over 50 million members. Get laid tonight!
