I’ve cross-referenced “The FetLife Creeplist, Volume 1” a massive database of over 1.5 million FetLife user accounts’ basic profile data (which offers some insights all on its own), with the Predator Alert Tool for FetLife consent violation report database (formerly FAADE).
In the Predator Alert Tool for FetLife database as of April 29th, 2015, there are 652 unique users reported as having violated someone’s consent. Out of those 652 users, 86 (13.19%) are paying FetLife customers. This table summarizes the self-reported genders and roles of those 86 customers.
Of FetLife customers reported to have violated someone’s consent, 52 (60.47%) are male-identified. Male doms alone make up more than
a full fifth (20.93%) of FetLife’s customers who have reportedly raped or violated consent (18 users), with the next-most dangerous demographic being male sadists (10 users, 11.63%) followed by male switches (7 users, 8.14%).
Among paying FetLife customers, consent violations are overhwelmingly perpetrated by D-type roles, with Doms across all reported genders
accounting for 19 accused users (22.1%), followed by sadists and switches, who each account for 10 accused users (11.63%). Notably, there are no male S-type FetLife customers who have been accused of consent violations so far.
From a dataset of over 1.5 million FetLife accounts (1,517,103, to be precise), a total of 15,495 customers were identified, showing that FetLife’s customer base is approximately 1.02% of its total user base. In contrast, out of 652 unique users reported to the Predator Alert Tool for FetLife, 86 of those users are paying customers, which is a whopping 13.19%.
This indicates that paying FetLife customers are 13 times more likely to be sexual predators than the average FetLife user. In other words, you may want to be especially cautious whenever you see the “I support FetLife” badge on someone’s profile. :\
So. That’s a thing.
