Growing the Anal Only Lifestyle community

Post by analsexonly » Tue Jul 25, 2017 6:51 am

With recent changes on Tumblr making that platform less viable for promoting the anal only lifestyle, I would like to further expand this website beyond just the forum, into a greater community with multiple features. I am interested in hearing everyone's ideas for what they would like to see here and what they'd like to get out of the community.

To start off the discussion, I'm just going to throw out some ideas, some of which have been discussed (or even dismissed) in the past, just to get things going.
  • More comprehensive user profiles with somewhat of a social networking or dating site functionality
  • A way for people to curate lists of their favorite porn and share within their profiles
  • Better integrated realtime chat
  • A lifestyle blog integrated into this site rather than through tumblr
Those are my initial ideas, but I would love to hear everyone else's ideas and suggestions. Let's hear them, no matter how crazy they might seem.

This is JUST GREAT.
I dare to say that all those announced changes mean promising future for the whole AO community.

It would also be fine if there was a possibility to upload own/ personal pictures and videos that would be (if approved by its owner) available for all registered members within the AO community.

Just to be clear, those aren't specifically announced changes just yet, they're just ideas I am requesting feedback on to initiate discussion about future changes.

Well, if we're going to enlarge our environment...

I still think an AO dating feature would be very nice to try. Here if it will ever be done I'd suggest not to keep the same profile active on the forum: this way users would gain a safer privacy.

The idea of a list of favorite porn is good. Even Analien's idea of uploading personal stuff is nice.

These days I'm very busy but asap I'll hopefully add personal hints :)
Think, it's free ;-)

I'm a bit busy atm, but as already told my approach is more to propagandize anal as a whole. I'll soon try to generate traffic with trafficjunky e.g. on pornhub. Maybe I'll be able to finance this with the affiliate-program I have on my site.

What do you think about a collaboration?

I second this motion for an Anal Only dating feature. However, it would only work, for me anyway, if it was a free service. I have tried anal and sex dating sites before, and they all claimed to be free, but they all required paid premium membership to access their features. Besides, unlike other dating sites, the profiles on these forums seem to be a healthy mix of both males and females, and the all seem to have genuine passion and interest in anal only relationships.


(P.S. Sorry for the thread bump.)

With recent legal changes in the U.S. regarding online communities, there are no plans to move forward with any sort of dating functionality as part of this community.

I can see why you would want to grow your community. Even though I still feel like I'm on the outside, I don't feel as alienated (for want of a better word) as when I discovered this "lifestyle". I can see that there are people for whom this matters a lot, even if most people have never heard of it. Making it easy to find and approachable is good for outsiders like myself who either come here with worries or to find out more. You appear to avoid the pitfalls of other sex message boards by keeping to a largely mature debate around the topics. So far you have avoided to influx of trolls and teens (not that they don't have a right to explore themselves either, but I think we all know what I mean).

Whatever my future here, I wish you well with your endeavour.

Just being around here and interacting with others has done so much for my confidence in just a few weeks. Reading about all the others who've been here has made me believe that it can be a reality for me too.

So yeah, whatever you can do to grow the community, go for it. Mutual support, a pool of knowledge and a community will be an enormous benefit. There could be millions who feel the same way but have no idea that we are here and they are not alone.
