STD Friends Review
Free membership: Lifetime free but with limited features
Membership Plan: $19.95/month
STDfriends network currently has nearly 40,000 members and still growing. This site is also one of the oldest - it has been running since 2002 but they recently upgraded it to a sleeker web 2.0 version in 2007, that's a delight to use.
The homepage is pink and pretty that screams fun. There's a list of profile pictures on the homepage that even free members can rate if they're hot or not. There's also a detailed site statistics. At any time, you know how many members have joined STD friends, the activity level, new members in the current week/month, who's online, etc.
All paid members get a profile page that has a photo gallery, an mp3 & video gallery,a blog, an STD friends circle and a guest book where other members can post. The best thing about the site is that even free members can try out the special features. For free members, searching and photo rating is not limited but the blog, forum, gallery, guestbook, mp3 player and video player can be used once in a 24 hour period. This gives you an option to test out all the features of the site before you pay for a membership plan.
