Lavalife.com.au consists of three seperate communities - Dating, Relationships, and Intimate Encounters - allowing you to partricipate in the one that best suits what you are looking for.

The site fills the middle ground between the "looking for love" singles sites and the more R-rated adult sites. Members are from all walks of life, and their profiles are unlikely to offend even in the Intimate Encounters section.

Members from all states of Australia. Predominantly a younger community with a jority members in their 20s and 30s, although older age groups are represented.

Relationships catered for:

singles dating, adult & swingers, couples, groups.
Heterosexual, bi-sexual, male-male, female-female.

The Positive:

  • video profiles

The Verdict:

Not an easy site to get around; search options are very limited when compared to others. Likely to appeal to those in the 20 - 40 age group. Online members video is a disticnt plus, not seen on other sites.
