Conveniently, the what’s hot section has search capabilities built into it, allowing members to filter images, videos, and members by sexual orientation, age, location, and race
This section hosts live model cams, live member webcams, and a list of top broadcasters, as well as options to join adult chat rooms or participate in flash chats or instant messaging. Although both are video chats , live model webcams allow the user to ‘direct’ the show, while live member webcams are more of a dialogue between viewers and the member on screen. The site recently added a Connexion feature to the live action section that takes digital sex to a whole new level. To use Connection, users purchase a sex toy, download flash player, connect the toy to their computer and then browse back to the live action section and click on any model with an X next to her name. Once connected, your toy and the toy of your chosen model will sync real time so you can physically feel her every movement as she feels yours.
If you want to attract attention right away, you can do so by contributing content to the site. When you upload new videos or pictures they go to the top of the homescreen newsfeed, where others actively show interest through liking, favoriting, commenting, or tipping with coins. By default, news feed updates are displayed in real time, meaning the last one to post will be on the top of the feed, but there is also a social factor built in, meaning once a post starts to trend (because it receives so much response, good or bad,) that post will randomly be featured at the top of the newsfeed as well. You can also filter your newsfeed to show only members nearby or those you have friended or hotlisted.
Other ways to instantly get in on the action include an option to instantly chat or live broadcast from within the online dating site
The instant messenger has tens of thousands of members on it at any given time and you can filter members prie options as the on-site search provides. You can use basic text to communicate or use the IM section to privately send images, gifts, and even videos. The live broadcast feature is essentially part of the chat area and allows you to broadcast to mass audiences. Users broadcast to introduce themselves, develop a following, and earn coins.
In the What’s Hot section, members can discover other members who have been rated the hottest as well as watch adult movies. The hottest sections are divided into hottest photos, hottest videos, hottest albums and hottest members. For each image, video, or member discovered in this section, users can view, like, comment, or add tips. In this fashion, the site is somewhat gamified, in which popularity from likes and views is rewarded with higher rankings.
Acting as a sexually-forward social site as much as a dating site, XMatch also features a community section, where members can go to discuss sexual topics, get advice, go through Sex Academy training (which later provides one with badges for their profile to show off their bedroom know-how) and participate in contest. Each sex academy course can be purchased and taken online, all of which have thousands of graduates, the most, and perhaps most popular, being the Better Sex Techniques course with 18,994 grads. Graduating from any Sex Academy course is applicable to display on users’ profiles on XMatch and across the other adult dating sister sites such as ATL and FriendFinder
