UK casual sex dating site ShagCity.co.uk says that it’s a social platform with thousands of men and women looking for a no strings attached sexual relationship. They make a lot of claims on their first page. Let’s go over them. They claim that they are 100% free with no credit card required. That proved to be false. They claim to have 67% women and 33% men. A bold claim that would make it an impressive hookup site for men to visit. This percentage might be accurate, but most of those women are fake. Check out my full review below for details on my findings.
A Look at Shag City Dating Site
I had not seen a clear sign of fraud, so I was optimistic that this might be an authentic site. I entered my sex, the sex I was looking for, my date of birth, city, user name, e-mail address, and password. An activation link is sent to your e-mail.
When you click it, you are taken directly to the site where you can start browsing member profiles. You are given 1 credit for signing in. The menu across the top allows you to access your profile, messages, flirts, favorites, and settings. Search options are limited and you can only sort the profiles by age and location.
Fake Profiles Noticed Immediately
Right away, I noticed that the profiles looked fake because they were too good to be true. Every profile picture showed a girl with the face of a model, a naked ass, or a set of boobs.
With each profile, only the age and location are displayed and you cannot send them a message unless you click on them. I did not like this at all because I am used to being able to write the girls directly from the gallery page.
No Info Provided
Clicking on each profile one at a time wastes time. There is very little information in the profiles. You only get a small paragraph describing them, their age, height, body type, marital status, hair color, eye color, and other menial information. You are allowed to send one message and you spend your only free credit.
Bogus Credit System
That brings me to the credit system on the site. It was a pleasant surprise that there was no monthly membership charge, but the credit system can be even more expensive if you are not careful.
It also gives the site incentive to try to fool you with fake messages because every message will cost you a credit.
Too Much Money
You can purchase credits in 5 packages. 10 credits buy you 10 messages for £ 15. 25 credits buy you 25 messages for £ 35. 50 credits buy you 50 messages for £ 65. 100 credits buy you 100 messages for £ 120.
200 credits buy you 200 messages at £ 200. In order to view private photos in full size, you must pay £ 10 per month, £ 24 for 3 months, £ 39 for 6 months, and £ 49 for a year.
Read Section 8 TOS
The fake profiles and messages on ShagCity.co.uk are very good at tempting you to send them messages and, by the time you realize you are not talking to a real girl who wants to hook up with you, you have already used up a lot of valuable credits. Check out the bottom of section 8 of the terms and conditions if you want proof of fake profiles and messages.
They tell you that it is not their aim to bring physical contact between members. They admit, in writing, that they use moderated fake profiles for online adult entertainment purposes. Any dating site that uses fake profiles is not to be trusted, especially when you must use expensive credits to pay for them.
That’s my ShagCity review, I hope you enjoyed it. If you’re still wondering what my conclusion was here, it’s that the site is a waste of time and should not be used at all. Avoid it completely.
