Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, & Happy New Year to you all!  I was naughty and took some time off for the holidays, so apologies if you had to wait a bit to have your messages answered or your ads approved. We should be all up to date now.

 

Don't forget that our Premium Live Chat, which is currently open to all users, will revert to Premium Only at the end of the month.  If you have been enjoying live chat and want to benefit from all of our Premium features, it's easy to upgrade at anytime. And don't forget we now have a "Gift Premium" feature if you want to buy a holiday present for your kinky friends.

 

Thank you all for helping to make THE CAGE such a wonderful, supportive place! Cage Monkey and I have big plans to bring you lots of new features and improvements in 2019.  We've had thousands join us this year and look forward to building our community together.

 

Happy Holidays!

By popular demand THE CAGE Team is happy to bring you Premium Gifting!  You can now purchase a Premium Subscription Gift for a friend with six and twelve month options. Just visit any Basic user's profile page and click on the "Gift Premium" option under her or his name.  To make gifting even easier, we offer multiple ways to purchase, all of which are private, safe and secure.  To those of you who choose to support the site in this way, thank you!

 

Although gifts are nice, not everyone likes to receive them.  Make sure you only purchase a gift subscription for someone you know who you believe would appreciate it. If you're not sure, ask.  And like all soliciting on THE CAGE, asking others to buy you premium membership or other gifts is against our rules. If you see any soliciting, please screenshot it and report it on the user's profile page.

 

If you'd like to opt out of Premium Gifting just click on "preferences" under your name and toggle "Allow others to gift me a Premium subscription" from yes to no.  You can change this at any time.

 

Happy Holidays everyone!  We hope you enjoy this spanking new feature!

Because it's December and we're feeling festive we are opening our CHAT to everyone for the whole month!  Whether you have Basic or Premium membership, you can enjoy all of the warmth and fun of live chat, all month long.

 

Here's to a lovely holiday season at THE CAGE!

We've added a fun new feature that some of you have been requesting - a list of individuals who have loved your profile.  Visit your profile page and click on the 'heart icon' at the top to see your list.  Oh and this list is for your viewing only!  No one else can see it.

If you'd like to love someone's profile just visit their page and click the love button on the bottom.  Only the profile holder will be able to see that you've loved it.  It's a fun way to flirt or to just show appreciation for a thoughtful or interesting profile.

 

Have fun!

It's getting to be the time of year for colder weather and holiday cheer and we're in the mood for some festive fun! We have a few exciting updates to share with you that we hope will help make the rest of 2018 just a little warmer and more jolly:

  • We're happy to announce that we're throwing open the doors of our chatrooms to all of our members for the month of December!  Everyone is welcome, premium and basic, to meet, greet, and mingle around the clock with our wonderful, international community of kinksters.  Hang out in the chatroom lobby or perhaps get intimate in a private chatroom of your own.  Enjoy live conversations with new friends from all over the world.
  • Black Friday is coming!  If you're not already a Premium member this might be the best opportunity to upgrade yet.  Make sure to visit us this weekend and see what we have in store.
  • We're pleased to announce that we are now supporting Paysafecard payments as an additional payment option. Paysafecard allows you to Go Premium in complete anonymity.  Paysafecards can be bought at local shops in over 40 supported countries.  Just use the Paysafecard store locator to find one near you. 
  • We've just hit 23,000 registered users, with new members from all over the world joining us every day. Wherever you are, there are likely to be CAGE kinksters nearby.  Use our members search to find out someone near you and make sure to say hello to all of our new members!

 

Finally, we'd like to wish you all a happy, safe, and consensual holiday season! We hope you'll share a little bit of your time this December with us inside THE CAGE.

 

Happy Holiday!

We've had loads of new members join us over the past few months so it's time to remind everyone about how privacy works here at THE CAGE.  I'm re-posting some info we published as we introduced new privacy features last October:

 

One of our users recently posted about privacy and THE CAGE's searchability on Google and other search engines. Some of you may also wonder about the privacy of your profiles and content you post on THE CAGE. Here's where we stand:

THE CAGE's default setting is to be open and transparent, creating what we believe is a friendly and inviting community. We are BDSM/kink/sex/fetish positive and hope that our openness will not only encourage self acceptance, but acceptance of BDSM generally in the greater society.

That being said, we understand not everyone wants to or is able to be completely open. We now offer options that will help to control your privacy, including options to limit viewing of blog posts and your profile to registered users or all visitors.

We have more general info about privacy in our Community Standards, which everyone should read. You can find it at the bottom of each page or just click the link below.

 

https://thecage.co/eng/PrivacyPolicy.php

 

If you have joined us recently and want to change who can see your profile go to "edit" and then check (or uncheck) the "premium members only" box.  You can also make this change to your blog in "blog settings".

 

We have plans to offer you more privacy options in the future. Watch this space.

Here's a brief summary of a few recent updates here on THE CAGE...

 

-we now offer options for who can contact you:  everyone, premium members only, or no one.  You can toggle these on and off as you like, depending on your mood and availability. Find these settings in preferences, in your mail settings and in BOND (our premium instant messenger service).

 

-our "online now" feature has expanded to include a variety of search filters, including gender and D/s orientation.  You can also see who has recently been online.

 

-our live chat counter has now been replaced with a subtle 'glow' that indicates if the chat area is active. Live chat is a premium only feature and well worth the upgrade.  Nevermind all the other features you get AND you are supporting the community! More about the extra features you get with premium memberships here:  https://thecage.co/subscription/subscribe/

 

-We've made changes to some of our blog functions involving drafts and publishing dates.  Find out more about it in our dedicated thread here:   https://thecage.co/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=954

 

What's next?  We're going to be working to make our personals far more engaging!
