GetItOn Review

by

Folks of any sexual orientation are welcome at GetItOn, just as long as they’re looking for casual or sexual encounters with other singles and/or couples. The site shows explicit photos and asks very adult-oriented questions, and then offers a fun compatibility feature to ensure you take a better look at the other members with similar interests and requirements.

From GetItOn.com: “At GetItOn, you’ll find a community of people using the site as a tool to make connections and find partners for dating, romance, friendship, and a variety of encounters.”

Demographic: Straight, Gay and Lesbian singles and couples looking for primarily sexual or casual relationships.

Sign Up Process

Before you’re asked a thing about your gender, needs or personality, Get It On jumps right to the juicy stuff: what kind of experience you’re after, so as better to match you with folks nearby looking for similar things. This site definitely wants to push buttons and focus on the sexual, with questions like, “Group Sex,” and the only options to answer: Gotta Have It, Want It, Curious About It, Not That Important To Me, Willing To Try If Asked and Never Gonna Happen. You can’t sign up without answering these questions, so you might as well have fun with it. Otherwise, signing up only took me a few minutes, and probably less if I’d left the default options as “Prefer Not To Say” for most of my profile options. Once I received the password a few seconds later, I could log in.

Look and Feel

The site was created to get members to pay for services, and it shows. As soon as you log in, you’re met with the pricing structure, and it took me a moment to figure out where to go if I just wanted to look around, first. As well, all of the “members near me” who showed up while I was signing up, magically disappeared when I searched my region. I saw no less than nine single gals in my (very) small town advertised before I logged in, yet I couldn’t even find one during my search. So on one hand, I felt like there was a bit of baiting and switching going on, but on the other, the site has an uncluttered, clean feel to it, and I found it easy to navigate and get around once I got past the pay wall information.

Search

As already mentioned, the search features rock. They’re very easy to use, quick, and you can search using any of the details that you signed up with, including drug use, gender, body type and age. Even geographical area searches worked like a charm, and I found a surprising 19 people in a 20km radius of me, using some really niche options just to see how many members the database houses.

Connecting With Other Members

As a free member, there aren’t a lot of interactive opportunities. All you’ll get after searching for others is a small image with basic details of that member (user name, tag line, age, and gender/couple status), with a link to email, flirt or hotlist them. I was able to flirt with all manner of folks, but couldn’t contact people, or see anything else about them, without paying. Once I did get paid access, I received zero flirts or email responses to any of my queries.

Accessibility and Mobile

Members can also access the site in English, French, Spanish, Dutch, Korean, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, German, Swedish, Chinese and Tagalog. Get It On didn’t have a smartphone app mid-2013 when I reviewed it last.

Pricing

  • A free membership allows users to sign up, look at a portion of other people’s profiles, contact up to ten of your “Cupid” matches, upload images and videos, keep a hotlist of up to 200 your favorite members, reply to messages, and use the group chat feature.
  • A paid membership gives the same access as a free membership, plus full viewing of photos and profile details, full email capabilities, contacting all of your “Cupid” matches, telephone technical support, up to a 1000 member hotlist, and priority changes to your account and profile.

Membership fees range from $5.99/month CAD (18 months service for the price of 12, billed in one lump sum of $107.82 CAD), to $9.99/month CAD (four months service for the price of three, billed in one lump sum of $39.96 CAD), or $18.99/month. Get It On accepts Visa, Mastercard, Diners Club, Discover, Ukash and checks for payment.

Terms of Use and Privacy Policy

There are a few items in the  Terms of Use at Get It On that worth mentioning. I should note that many of the things I’m pointing out here are standard business practices in the online dating world; however, I get more emails about automatic billing practices than almost anything else, and so, I’m mentioning the things you should review before signing up, or at the very least, be aware of.

  • Members of GetItOn.com can’t have asked any government agency (including the post office) to not send them “sexually oriented material”;
  • By signing up with the site, you’re confirming that you haven’t been convicted of a felony, and aren’t required by law to register as a sex offender in your jurisdiction or community;
  • Chatting, emailing and sharing photos with other members is considered “public communications,” and anything that you post to the site can be used in marketing materials or for any other reason by GetItOn and its co-branded dating sites;
  • GetItOn employs automatic billing practices, so you must cancel your subscription in writing three days prior to the next billing cycle, or else your original method of payment will be charged for the same amount of money and time that you signed up for;
  • If you don’t log into the site for more than 180 days, and if you still have funds in your account, GetItOn *may* charge you an Account Maintenance fee of $5/month;
  • There are no refunds, pro-rated or otherwise; and
  • “With respect to Dating Services, you, the buyer, may cancel these Terms, without any penalty or obligation, at any time prior to midnight of the third business day following the date of this contract, excluding Sundays and holidays. To cancel these Terms, mail or deliver a signed and dated notice, or send a telegram that states that you, the buyer, are canceling this agreement or Terms, or words of similar effect. This notice shall be sent to: Various, Inc., Attn: Customer Service-Cancellations, 220 Humboldt Court, Sunnyvale CA 94089.”
Is GetItOn right for you? I can only recommend it to women looking for a short-term, casual, and very sexually-based interaction, or people willing to stick with the freebie features and see how they fare before signing up for a full membership. Watch out for the Terms of Service as well, especially with that refund policy and deciding whether you want to upload photos or not. Sure, you’ll get a lot more responses to your ad, however is that worth a dating site being able to use them forever in their marketing materials?
