  • many pictures possible
  • Discretion: Anonymization of the profile photo with secret masks
  • Free texts to describe preferences and fantasies possible
  • Duration of registration: about 15 minutes

The registration takes place within a few minutes and is free. After giving the e-mail address and password, you will immediately receive a confirmation e-mail. After logging in, you can start creating the profile directly: select the account name and erotica type and fill out the personal details and search details (criteria that a potential flirt partner should fulfill).

Specify your own type of erotic

To pre-select when specifying your erotic type are:

  • romantic
  • experiment
  • unrestrained
  • individually

Then you can make the detailed information about erotic wishes via the slider. Within this information, one’s own sexual preferences are divided into categories. Later, these are for members on their profile in the form of playing cards, with the titles “Absolutely”, “would be nice”, “situation-dependent”, “rare”, “taboo”, visible.

Personal information

In the next step, personal information can be made visible for potential profile visits:

  • Basic information: marital status, figure, height, etc.
  • Appearance: Eye color, hair color, hair length, weight, clothing style, body jewelry
  • Lifestyle: education, ethnicity, drinking habits, diet type, language skills, hobbies and interests

Set search criteria

Now you can select the search criteria of potential flirting partners similar to your own data. These criteria are divided into the same categories as the personal information.

Insert profile pictures and write free texts

Users with profile pictures usually receive much more contact requests and flirt offers. On your photo can be masked by one of 6 selectable masks . This looks mysterious and seductive … And besides, it serves your anonymity, so you do not get into the uncomfortable situation of being recognized by work colleagues or friends.

10 more pictures, which are only visible for individually selected contacts, can be uploaded additionally.

With an individual text  under the titles “My special preferences” and “My secret fantasies” you can complete the first impression of your profile for visitors. Many Secret members use the text boxes and focus more on their personality.

These individual details and images will become visible to other members after a couple of hours after being reviewed by a secret agent.

Note: Completing the profile will give women 180 credits and men up to 100 credits for free. A complete profile includes: the creation of the profile picture, the gallery pictures and the personal details of “my special preferences” and “my secret fantasies”.


Secret message
  • personal messages
  • send erotic cards
  • Ask for pictures or share your own pictures with a member
  • every kind of contact is paid with credits, the costs are absolutely justified
  • Live chat available for direct exchange

The possibilities

Through personal messages, erotic cards, image requests and image sharing you can contact quickly. To protect your privacy, the pictures of the flirting partners are only visible if you give them to a member for viewing.

The credits

Through credits it is possible to write interesting members. If you have acquired the right of contact with another member, you can interact with it indefinitely. To visibly express appreciation for your flirt partner, you can send credits to him or her as a gift attached to a message . Read receipts for sent messages are just as little as a free nudge function.

Although women have to spend less credits than men to make contact, it is not for free. Therefore, you can assume that a woman writing to you is more seriously interested in your first impression and that you may soon embark on an erotic adventure.

Below in the test we explain everything about the credits.

The service

You can easily report black sheep and communication boogers directly to the Secret Customer Service, who checks the profile immediately and, if necessary, deletes it.

Our conclusion:  Secret offers a variety of ways to make contact, which are used intensively by the members. Our flirt partners knew what they wanted, but shared this very friendly and sophisticated. If you proceed carefully, you can already make your first appointments in just one day!

Especially the high rate of answers surprised us very positively and does not correspond to the experiences in other portals. In addition, attracts constantly enough new members. So you can always get to know new contacts from the environment, even if you have been registered there for some time.

Casual dating is fun, but how do I find a sex contact that wants the same as me?

Pay attention to the information in the respective profile of the members and what preferences they have. Question targeted in personal messages, as your sex date concretely introduces a meeting. In the hotelroom? In a bar with a role play?

Which mailing strategies are successful on

Basically it can be said that personally written cover letters arrive well. Your messages should not be too long questions and respond to the other person.

Often it is also good if you do not make a big secret about yourself: Share information about yourself and your preferences with your counterpart.

Tip of the editors to contact:  Secret are no porn stars registered, but normal people. Especially as a man you should not fall into the house with the door and express special wishes such as anal, oral or fetish preferences in the first exchange. This seems rather daunting and can also be discussed later in bed. So keep your profile relatively “normal”.

What should I consider before my first secret meeting?

On an erotic date you can get closer to your casual date already at the first meeting than you might have expected – also very close. For this reason, you should pay attention to a neat appearance and cleanliness. Try to enjoy the sex date. Discuss the borders and respect them.
