Recon is a hookup / personals site where men into kink and fetishes can find like-minded men. There are dominant and submissive guys into leather, bondage and role playing, but categories also hairy bears, muscle gods and their worshipers, guys into piss, military, skinheads, feet and socks, latex, jocks, boot worship, hoods and masks or bikers, punks and more. There are men of all ages and types, and one thing they all have in common is that they're looking for something beyond the typical vanilla guy or sex. There's a lot of guys in leather gear, bad boys in track suits and a variety of horny guys looking for hookups.
Besides listing member profiles, the site also lists gay and gay fetish-related events in date order. If you're interested, you'll find events from all over the world like Palm Springs Leather Pride 2013, Mr. International Rubber 17: Karnival of Kink, Full Fetish AMSTERDAM, and Fetish Week London 2014. Not only can you find the details of each event, but also what Recon members are planning to attend or not. That means you may be able to hook up with other members from the site.
When you're ready to do a search, you must first create your profile, you'll be asked for things like your primary interests (bears, feet, bondage, fisting, tattoos and piercings, etc.), your area, appearance stuff, how active or passive you are, and you must add your first photo. Although the site says that this pic must show you clearly and have no full nudity, there are a number of guys who used pics of their chests or stomachs, non-explicit rear photos showing off their asses, and things like this. Then it's time to write your profile.
Free members can search for guys by area, member name, the list of interests (you remember - bondage, fisting, tattoos and piercings, boots, etc), and can also search by online members only and date member last logged in, but cannot search by age, height, height, body type, aggressive or passive, or things like that. Only paying members can search for those things, which means if you're only looking for a top, a bottom or someone of a particular age range, you'll have to become a paying member.
Like most personals / hookup sites, while Recon does offer a free membership, think of it as a trial. Free members can do basic searches, send private messages to other members, and can view a limited amount of member profiles each day. Only paying members can view other members' private photo galleries, and only paying members can use the more detailed search, appear in the top 100 lists or get notified when friends and favorites come online.
Recon is pretty easy to use - navigation is simple, and profiles and your message box appear in pop-ups. There are members from many countries, and it's easy to check out what members are online at any given time, which is a plus if you want to chat or connect with someone right now. Do keep in mind that there are a lot more men in some countries and areas, and a lot less in others.
If you have a fetish or kink, and you're looking for men who share it, Recon is a good place to search. Whether you're into hairy men, bikers, men in suits, cigar-chomping leather or bondage, chances are there are guys who share your tastes and fantasies. While free members get limited access, they can still connect, and the paid memberships are reasonably priced and let paying members refine their searches to find just who they're looking for. Recon delivers fetish and alternative guys, and the free membership is a no credit card way to connect with kinky guys via private messages.
