And, is the site real or just a scam that has fake female dating profiles on it? Sometimes the answers are right in front of you but you never bothered to look.

My Personal Opinion
Shagaholic like many of the dating sites that I rate and review pull some shady business tactics to get people to upgrade their free membership to a paid one. Personally I read the terms and conditions because many times they reveal the type of scams they pull right in the terms. They do this because you need to agree to the terms and conditions before you can create a free or paid membership on Shagaholic or any dating site. It may also cover Shagaholic's ass if their members try to sue for fraud.
In this case I found some interesting info on Shagaholic's terms page. In section 2.2 they state and I quote "We create user profiles for use by our customer support representatives for the support, marketing and improvement of the Service. Our customer support representatives are encouraged to speak with our members and also to stimulate conversation between members by making introductions or recommendations. This is a vital part of the Service we provide. Should you wish not to be contacted in this way you can alter your preferences by visiting the 'My Account' section of this website."
So basically Shagaholic creates and uses fake dating profiles so their "representatives" can chat with you and market services to you! Hard to believe this is true, well it is written in black text on their terms page! Hopefully this info is enough to make you decide that Shagaholic is deceiving it's users by creating fake female profiles and then emailing them to try and trick them into thinking they are getting contacted by a real girl. It's a huge scam. Avoid them at all costs! I recommended staying with trusted dating sites that offer lots for free, such as the dating sites listed below.
Recommended Sites With Free Chat Rooms & Web Cams:
All 3 dating sites shown below are legitimate and offer quite a bit with just a free basic dating profile, such as free webcam viewing and also access to free local chat rooms. Making your free membership takes a few minutes and then you can start interacting with local women if they are online at the same time you are.
- AdultFriendFinder (the largest adult site has free webcam and free chat rooms.)
- HornyWife site (for married men and women, & also has free chat rooms and free webcam viewing)
- Passion (for single men and women, has webcam viewing and free chat room as well.)
