Swinger Zone Central aka SZC – This swinger dating site is a straightforward site that keeps it simple. You won’t find any flashiness, but you will appreciate that it is reliable and easy to use. This workhorse site has a loyal following in the Ohio Valley area.
SZC offers free & paid accounts (aka “Paying Members“). This site is tied with C4P for the lowest monthly prices of a swinger site. Because it is limited in functionality, it is simple & easy to use. It covers the basics of what is needed on a swinger site.
It might be missing the frills, but they did a decent job for local swingers to schedule with others and more communicate when they are interested in another couple. Considering the low price, it is not a rip-off.
SZC doesn’t have a fancy design and is missing the latest online features (like video streaming or advanced search filters) available on the bigger & more popular swinger sites. The location filter is a bit clunky, making you go through multiple dropdowns to pick a specific city. We really wish you could search all the data fields (like filtering by condom preference or piercings). It is a barebones site. A minor annoyance is that they don’t own the SZC domain, so you have to spell out the complete Swinger Zone Central domain name.
SZC has most of the basic features of every other swinger site, including photo albums, mailbox, chat, who’s viewed me, a calendar of parties & club events.
SZC is a bit unique by giving each member a “Wall” to post their thoughts and comment with others. They don’t have a site forum which is common on other swinger sites, but they do have “Groups,” and each group has its own wall & message board which is used to make up for the lack of a forum.
SZC is a possible option if you live in the Ohio Valley area. It is a common site for a few of the towns in that area. If you aren’t in one of those towns, there are much better options for you to join, but they will cost more money than SZC. SZC does a good job providing a decent experience and makes it possible to connect with real swingers. It is basically a bulletin board for local Ohio Valley swingers but doesn’t provide more than that. This is why we give it a C+ rating.
Free vs. Paid
SZC’s free version isn’t good for much. You can browse other profiles, but only if you upload a photo of yourself. You need to upgrade to a paid membership to sext or request to meet with other swingers on the site, unlike other sites that provide a real free trial period.
SZC is a basic option compared to other swinger sites. It offers one of the cheapest lifetime packages of a popular swinger site making this site a great value.
1 month is $12.95
3 months is $27.00
Lifetime is $59.95
SZC Discounts & Promo Codes
The best deal is to sign up for the lifetime billing, which will save you money in less than 5 months compared to the monthly billing. If you really want to pay every month, you can save 30% if you opt into recurring monthly billing for $9.95 but we have heard complaints about recurring billing acting incorrectly. Seriously the lifetime option is so low. We don’t know why anyone would choose to go with monthly recurring. They do not currently have any promo codes, but they do have a flash sale which seems to never end.
How to Use SZC
Swinger Zone Central isn’t the fanciest of swinger sites, but they do give you ample chances to describe yourself and what you are hoping to discover. For example, it is one of the few swinger sites that display condom preferences on each profile. As with any swinger site, being as complete as possible will boost your odds of a sexy connection.
Try to upload at least 5 current photos & include your partner in them. You can put your face pictures & naughty pictures in a private “Gallery.” Spend time describing yourself, what style of swinging you enjoy, any rules, your favorite moments & whatever else is on your mind. SZC provides all members with a “Wall” where they can post their thoughts and others can comment (similar to Facebook). The more you share, the easier it is for other people to flirt with you & discover mutual interests. Here are tips for writing better dating profiles.
SZC makes it easy for a couple to rate profiles & also make notes privately. You can privately rate other members on a scale of 1-10 stars. When you are ready to connect with other swingers, SZC has plenty of options. If you see a profile you like, send a message that is personalized & mentions something specific from their profile. SZC also has a “Sext” feature (basically a chat function) & a “Request To Meet,” which is definitely not a subtle like or wink button. We personally think it is better to slow your roll when you want to make a connection and start a conversation via their standard “Contact.” If you want actual results, send a real message & grant them a “Gallery Request” to your private pictures.
If you are traveling, post it in the “I’m Going” area, or if you want a local meetup, post a “Booty Call.” Their calendar of parties & booty calls are very active and another good way to meet people on the site.
When you meet other swingers, ask them to submit a “Validation” (aka verification/certification) for you. This helps other members know you are real & that you have met another validated member. Many veteran swingers will filter out non-validated members for extra precaution.
