There are just two of us who run this site. That's our photos on the Help/Info page. We started this site to facilitate connections between men interested in corporal punishment and discipline. There are other Internet sites with a similar theme, so we cannot claim to be unique in that sense. However, some of them are so sleazy, we couldn't even bear having our profiles on those sites (not to mention any names).
The first profile appeared on ManSpank.us in June, 2007. Both of us are spankers, and we've spanked our share of guys. We are interested primarily in forming ongoing relationships between men interested in the scene. We feel that your sexuality is irrelevant when it comes to discipline, but would encourage you to make your interests in sex or love clear to those who might be a good match. The scene is so diverse, and the way that men connect is amazing.
We ran 11 sites, all with different themes and appeal but found that members were joining more than one site. So, in 2009, we decided to combine the sites into one site that members could choose which theme(s) was best for them. So, ManSpank, FindGayDad, HotGrayMen, PersonalMale, Chubs, Kink, GearFetish, RealMen, BignFurry, and TheDungeon all became one site. You could, for instance, let your profile be visible on ManSpank and FindGayDad if you were a young guy who likes daddies and likes to be spanked.
We are strong believers in doing good, responsible and ethical business. We are passionate about our members' privacy, and we work to prevent scammers from taking adavantage of our members. Whenever one of our members gives us credible evidence of profiles posted with false information, or instances of solicitation or fraud, we are quick to move the instigator's profile to the Hall of Shame.
We also decided early on to require photos on every profile. We feel that this both discouraged lurkers and required a certain fundamental sense of commitment to the site. We also set a Supporting Membership subscription rate to be very low compared to similar hookup sites. We decided not to require face photos, even though the majority our membership was in favor of that.
Some of our members have suggested we make the site free. The site is not run as a hobby, nor do either of us work part time to keep the site running. There are thousands of hours and dollars invested in all original software, web and database servers, and Internet hosting. If you believe either of us is getting rich at this, you are mistaken. In fact, we rely on our clients and contracted services to be able to afford hosting this site.
We rely on your suggestions and comments to improve the site. That's why there are suggestion boxes on many site pages, to make easy for you to contact us with with your ideas. We want to make you the owner of the site. We are extraordinarily proud of this site and want you to be too!
