Let me just say: you’ll love this GetItOn review, just as long as you’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. Is this review actually suggesting you can meet someone though at the site? Read for all the details, or add your own GetItOn review by scrolling to the end.
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 about your gender, needs or personality, GetItOn jumps right to the juicy stuff.
This site definitely wants to push buttons and focus on the sexual, with questions like, “Group Sex”. 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 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 to finish this GetItOn review.
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. 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 while writing this GetItOn review.
So on one hand, I felt like there was a bit of baiting and switching going on. 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. Let’s just say that’s truly unusual in the casual online dating world.
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.
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 for this GetItOn review, 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.
A free membership allows users to

The Bottom Line On This GetItOn Review
Is GetItOn right for you? I only recommend it to women looking for a short-term, casual, and very sexually-based interaction. Or, people willing to stick with the free features to see how they fare. Watch out for the Terms of Service as well. That doozy of a refund policy? Using your photos willy nilly? Sure, you’ll get a lot more responses to your ad. Is that worth a dating site using them forever in their marketing materials?
