— In-Depth LoveVoodoo Review —
There’s no two ways about it, if you come across a hookup site with a name like LoveVoodoo.com, its name alone is going to grab your attention. It is easy to let your imagination run wild.
Is it a site where you use spells and magic to meet other people?
Will voodoo dolls be involved? What about chicken blood and salamander tails?
Of course, LoveVoodoo.com has nothing to do with real voodoo. It is in actuality a platform to help members of the swinging community meet. No chicken sacrifices are involved.
The site has been around for a while — well over 15 years. If you are an established swinger — or if you are just curious — a site such as LoveVoodoo can easily call out to you.
— Looks Aren’t Everything —
When we say looks aren’t everything, we are not referring to the physical attractiveness of LoveVoodoo’s members. We are instead talking about the look of the site itself. In terms of aesthetics, there’s no other way to say it, the site is ugly. It looks incredibly old. Even in the 1990s the aesthetic appeal of LoveVoodoo would have been mocked and criticized.
However, just because the site looks dated and visually unappealing, does not mean that it cannot offer a positive user experience.
While LoveVoodoo is by no means a perfect site, as you dig further into this review, you will discover that LoveVoodoo does have a great deal to offer to the swinging community. Our advice would be to overlook its design mediocrity and fight back the urge to bounce away from the site two seconds after having landed on it. Trust us, overlooking its design will be worthwhile.
— It’s Community-Minded —
The strongest attribute of LoveVoodoo is that it is community-minded — for the swinging community, that is. Its membership base is composed of couples, single males, single females, gay, straight, etc. — all from different walks of life. Some are experienced in the swinging lifestyle, others are new. By our assessment, we estimate that close to half of the members are new to swinging.
LoveVoodoo has formed an honest and open community. There are no restrictions on the sort of images that can be posted on the site. Full nudity is permissible. Photographs of explicit sexual acts are also permitted. As long as the images belong to the members themselves, anything goes.
For those of you who may be a little shy, there is no need to worry. LoveVoodoo also takes into consideration the fact that the swinging lifestyle requires a high level of discretion. That’s why it also allows images that do not reveal the faces of the members. In other words, you can block out your face to hide your identity to the public.
— User Interface —
As we have already established, the design aesthetics behind LoveVoodoo are less than appealing. The way that users interact with the platform to conduct searches, upload photos, and communicate with each other is equally as dated. This means that for some of you, the LoveVoodoo platform will not be as intuitive as those on other sites.
For those of you who are a little bit older and remember the internet in its “dial-up” days, you will find navigating LoveVoodoo reminiscent of using chat flatforms from that long ago age.
— Features and User Experience —
The discovery features on LoveVoodoo consist of a search engine as well as links that help you find real-world swinging clubs as well as swinging lifestyle vacations. This means that LoveVoodoo adapts well to all swingers, regardless of their level of experience.
The search engine, as you would expect, is rustic. However, our testers found it to be useful and productive. This is probably due to the fact that the vast majority of the members on the site are genuine. We encountered very few fake profiles on the site. No matter how antiquated its search engine is, it still yields a high percentage of compatible matches.
Additional discovery opportunities also take place in the form of the 20 daily suggested matches that LoveVoodoo presents to each of its members.
The messaging feature on LoveVoodoo consists of an internal email platform. Again, it is rustic but functional.
One feature which we found to be unique is its “quick-hide” button. This allows users to automatically hide the site in case anybody enters the room while you are browsing for your next swinging hook up. When you click on the hide button, it doesn’t minimize the window, it cloaks it completely. It seems as if you are just on a Google page conducting some other type of search.
Another handy feature is the access it provides to blogs, polls, and stories that are informative and amusing. They are very useful to those who want to try out new things in swinging. They are also beneficial to those who are new to swinging and have questions about the lifestyle.
— Cost —
LoveVoodoo is free to join and use. A premium version is available at a cost of $14.95 per month, $34.95 for three months, $99.95 for one full year, or $139.95 for a lifetime membership.
The free version, in our opinion, is powerful enough for most people. The premium version grants you access to locked explicit photos, photo contests, and member videos.
