Who Is It For/Demographics?
It’s not very subtle, is it?
As soon as you see a dating website with the name of Get It On, you immediately know that the people that are going to make use of it, probably aren’t looking for the love of their life, or someone to settle down with.
Get It On is all about the hook-up, the casual encounter, the physical side of human relationships (like BeNaughty or Ashley Madison) unlike dating sites (like eHarmony or Tinder) meant for serious relationships.
That’s what the users of this site are looking for.
And there are so many of them!
In fact, the user numbers for this site are simply staggering.
Get It On: A user breakdown
10 million users.
Yes, that’s how many people have registered for profiles at Get It On.
That’s a massive number, the kind you see for large dating sites that have been around on the internet for years and years.
But it shows just how hook up sites are continuing to grow in popularity, that’s for sure.
Also, those numbers are driven by the fact that Get It On isn’t new.
In fact, it’s now been in existence for over 20 years having first started out in 1999.
It’s a sister site of Adult Friend Finder, so I would guess that those numbers could be a cross over between the two sites, but I wasn’t able to find any evidence of that fact.
Anyway, 10 million users mean that if you are looking for a casual hook-up, you really shouldn’t have any trouble finding one.
Gender breakdown and age ranges
Another critical bit of information when breaking down the demographics of a dating or casual hook up site is the ratio of male to female users, as well as the age ranges of the users on the site.
Well, it can provide you with an idea of the competition you’d face when searching for matchups.
Remember, you are not the only person seeing those returns.
Other people too are looking through them as well.
Get It On’s gender ratio sees males dominate the site.
- 70% of the users on Get It On are male
- 30% of the users on Get It On are female
So that’s a ratio of just over 2:1 male to female users.
On the whole, that’s pretty normal when it comes to dating sites like this.
And what it means is that as a female you’d have more matchups to choose from and as a male, you’ve got more competition.
But with 10 million users, is that really a problem?
But what about the age ranges?
Well, perhaps a little surprising is that the biggest users of the site are from the age range 45-54.
They makeup 25% of the site’s users and are spit 20% male and 5% female users.
A close second is the 35-44 year-olds.
They make up 24% of the users on Get It On and the breakdown here is 18% male and 6% female.
Here’s a full breakdown of the age ranges of users found on this hook up site.
- 45-54 years old
- 35-44 years old
- 25-34 years old
- 18-24 years old
Without a doubt, everything from a user base point of view is in place for you to make a success of Get It On in your casual dating quest.
But just how do you go about registering for a profile and how easy is it to get online and up and running?
Ease of Use
Get It On’s registration process is simple enough and geared at getting you online quickly and efficiently.
If you’d prefer to start your registration process through a Get It On app, you can’t.
That’s because Get It On doesn’t specifically have an app for itself.
Once you have them, you can use your Get It On sign-in credentials and sign into the Adult Friend Finder app but as far as an app for this hook up site, well, there isn’t one.
So that means to sign up for a user account, you are going to have to use the tried and trusted website registration.
When you head on over to the Get It On website, you will start the registration process by selecting your gender.
Not only can you sign up as a male or female, but also as a couple (man/woman, woman/woman and man/man).
Next up, select what you are looking for.
Again the options are male, female or couple (man/woman, woman/woman and man/man).
Now you can select what you are looking for in an encounter, for example, meetup for sex, threesome, group sex, or just keeping things online.
Then you will need to enter:
- Your email address
- Your username
- Your password
- Location (country, state, city)
- An introductory title to your profile
- An about you section
Around five minutes is all you need and you are online.
There is no need to validate your email at all.
Get It On: Finding your way around
Dating sites want you to sign up for membership and Get It On isn’t scared to thrust you right into that scenario.
When you’ve completed the registration process, you are taken to the site immediately and straight to a member sign up page.
Don’t sign up yet.
You can simply click on one of the menus above move away from that page.
A simple, yet effective design is the first thing you will notice about Get It On.
The simplest way to find your way around is by using the menu system you will find at the top of the screen.
I just want to briefly explain what each of these menus will do for you.
- House sign (home): Click on this to take you back to the front page of Get It On.
- Envelope (mailbox): All sent and received messages are found by clicking on this menu
- Profile with a + (admirers): Here you can see who has viewed your profile
- Winky smiley face (flirts): Here you can see who has flirted with you
- My Stuff: There are tons of other menus to be found under this tab, including where you can edit your profile, view the profiles you’ve come across, see who you have favorited, see friend requests and more.
- Search: This tab includes a few search options such as who’s online, advanced searches and members near you.
- Live-action: If you like viewing web-cams, you can click this tab.
Many of the extra menus that you will find when clicking on these tabs can also be found on the left-hand side of the screen.
It’s up to you to find the best way to navigate the site, but for me, the top menus are the easiest, especially when you learn where every other sub-menu is.
It’s important to remember that at this point, you’ve done nothing to flesh out your profile.
So many people tend to skip this but that’s a major negative in my book.
Well, not so much on hook up sites, where people are naturally first drawn towards people based on their profile pic.
But fleshing out your profile can make a difference.
If you don’t want to do it, at least upload a profile pic.
You won’t get far on a hook-up site if you don’t.
Now let’s get onto the business of searching for matchups.
That’s the main reason why you are using a site like Get It On, right?
To find someone like-minded to hook up for some no-strings-attached fun.
And to do that you are going to mostly make use of the search engine provided by the site.
Yes, there are other ways to find potential matchups but launching a search is the one you will come back to time and time again.
If you click on the search tab, Get It On will bring you a number of matchups that are near your location and in the age ranges near your age.
But I want to specifically look at the advanced search option.
It’s here you can change a range of different options to return the exact types of matchups you are looking for.
With the advanced search, you can alter these options:
- What you are looking for (men, women, couples)
- What you want to hookup for (1-on-1 sex, threesomes, group sex, cybersex, cybersex with cameras)
- Age range
- Member options (if they are online, if they have photos, if they have videos, if they are a premium member and more)
- Join date
- Last login
- Appearance (body type, height, eye and hair color, glasses, hair length)
- Lifestyle (do they drink, do they do drugs, do they smoke)
- Marital status
- Willing to relocate
- Astrological sign
That’s lots to work with, I am sure you will agree.
Of course, the more you select, especially with very specific things, the fewer matchups you will return.
For example, searching for females with short, brown hair and glasses is going to turn up far fewer returns than searching for just females with brown hair.
But yes, the advanced search is all you’d need to be able to return the best possible matchups.
Get It On: Reaching Out
Once you’ve taken the searching engine out on a few twirls, you would probably have come across a few matchups that you’d like to reach out to.
You will immediately notice that as soon as you try to message them, you are taken back to the membership sign-up page.
There is just no way to make meaningful contact with someone on Get It On without paying a membership fee.
Yes, you can add them to your hotlist, add them as a friend or flirt with them, but that doesn’t mean much at the end of the day.
And so, membership is a must.
That will bring several key features with it.
As a member of Get it On, it’s not just messaging that becomes available when you become a member.
There are other key features as well.
So in this section, I want to go through them.
While we’ve already mentioned it above, there is no denying that the best feature offered by taking out membership on Get It On is the ability to send and reply to messages.
Those that run dating or hook up sites know that it’s the number one reason why people opt to take out membership because they want to make contact with that promising matchup that they’ve found.
And that’s why messaging options are put behind a paywall, for that very reason.
Membership of Get It On means you can send as many messages as you’d like.
There are no restrictions.
2. Flirt with others and send gifts
I’m not sure that the ability to click a flirt button on someone’s profile should be a membership feature but on Get It On it is.
Flirting certainly has its uses.
For example, you can use it as a way to break the ice with someone you’d like to get to know better.
You flirt with them, they flirt back and you know that there is some interest in their side for you to act upon.
Membership also gives you the chance to send virtual gifts to other members.
All-in-all, that’s just a bit of fun.
Regular users aren’t able to view the profiles of all the Get It On users.
That problem disappears with membership.
4. No live cam restrictions
As a regular user, there are some live cams that you can watch but membership unlocks them all.
And there are so many to choose from.
So if that’s your thing, then membership might just be worth your while.
5. Leave comments
As a member of the site, you are allowed to leave comments on other user’s photos.
Again, this can be used effectively as an icebreaker before you message someone.
As a member, you can post a testimonial to someone that you’ve met and hooked up with.
7. Customer support
Members of Get It On get preferential customer support should they need it.
If you are interested in membership of the site, no doubt you are going to want to know just how much it’s going to cost you and what types of packages Get It On has available.
And that’s what we are going to take a look at now, along with other ways that the site wants you to spend your money.
Let’s start with the membership first.
If you want to sign up to be a member, you have a few options to choose from in terms of the length of the contract you are going to sign.
Get It On offers the regular one and three-month options but doesn’t have a six-month membership.
Instead, you can sign up for a whole year at a significant discount.
Here’s the breakdown of prices for those options.
- 1-month membership – $29.99
- 3-month membership – $59.80 ($19.93 per month)
- 12-month membership – $179.10 ($14.93 per month)
Pricing for membership is reasonable I think.
Because it’s a hook up site and not a dating site, the chances are that you are going to have more than one encounter, right?
So a longer membership makes complete sense.
It’s not like a dating site where if you are looking for love when you find someone that’s it, you don’t use the site anymore.
That’s why the discount that a longer membership option gives makes complete sense but of course, you’d have to pay significantly more upfront first.
But that’s not the only way you can spend money on the site.
You can also purchase points.
These can be used to interact with live cam models or book private sessions with them.
You can also use points to send virtual gifts to other users.
Here’s a breakdown of what points will cost you.
- 200 points – $3.00
- 500 points – $6.00
- 1 000 points – $10
Points can be earned by:
- Uploading photo (20 points but only up to 500 in total)
- Uploading videos 20 points but only up to 200 points)
- Confirm who you are (500 points)
- Fill in sections of your profile (various points)
- And more
Just as a reference, if you’d like to send a virtual flower to someone, that’s going to cost 50 points per flower you send.
A virtual give like a BDSM set is going to cost 7500 points.
Conclusion and Overall Rating
Without a doubt, if you are looking for a hook up website for casual dating or no-strings-attached physical relationships, then Get It On can certainly provide that.
For me, however, there are a number of nagging issues.
For example, why does a website like this, that has over 10 million users not have a dedicated app?
It certainly could use one.
The features as well are nothing to really write home about other than the ability to message people.
On sites like these, nudity is prominent and if you’d like to tone it down, Get It On does have a content filter that allows you to.
That said, in terms of the nature of the site, nudity probably isn’t going to bother you that much.
In terms of searching for the right kind of matchup, a standout of Get It On is that it gives you many ways to do so.
The advance search has so many parameters that you can change but if you’d like different methods to search for that perfect hook up, there are so many other options that you can make use of.
And that helps keep things fresh.
Without a doubt, however, to really get anything out of the site in terms of hooking up with someone, you need a membership and the site is not scared to guide you to their sign-up page at every opportunity.
Overall, I think a solid 3 out of 5 is a fair score for Get It On.
