Users' comments:

"When I was in my 20s, I was married to a woman because I wanted to fit in and had homophobia. But 1.5 years in that marriage, both of us knew something wasn't right. In my mid-20s, I was thinking…maybe I'm bisexual. But my psychologist told me that I am not bisexual; I must be gay, and there is nothing wrong with that. So, I came out as a gay guy. Then I joined GaysTryst gay hookup site and found many friends with benefits. Of course, I always believe in safe s*x and I know how to protect myself. Now I'm happily married to a gay man whom I met via GaysTryst!" (Eli L, 38, business owner, Hawaii)

"GaysTryst is one of the best gay hookup sites out there. Their top priority is to keep its users protected and safe. I recommend it!' (Joseph F., 24, wine buyer, Connecticut)

"After reading How to Bottom Like a P*rn Star and How to Top Like a Stud, I think I'm versatile. Then I joined GaysTryst and found my true self! I'm a versatile gay man, so I can both top and bottom really well." (Thomas N., 30, tour guide, Oregon)

"Because I'm a masculine and dominant top, I have proactively found many sexy bottoms via GaysTryst gay hookup service. Every bottom is unique and unforgettable. I remember each and every casual sexual encounter vividly. They are all beautiful! " (Martin B., 31, dentist, Maine)

"I'm a submissive bottom and I love being f**ked by a dominant, masculine, manly top. I enjoy receiving a p*nis and I'm happy to use LOTS of lube because anal intercourse can be painful without lube – in deed, the anus is not as flexible as a woman's honeypot, so we have to be more careful while hooking up with gay men. Thanks to GaysTryst, I've met so many hot men who have shared intimacy with me in a safe way." (Ian P., 29, makeup artist, Massachusetts)

"I slept with women when I was younger, but I never really enjoyed those encounters / relationships because a woman's honeypot is not as tight as a man's anus. I had to fantasize about men while penetrating a woman, meaning a woman was just a substitute for me at that time. Sometimes in order to prepare an erection, I had to browse a magazine full of naked men's photos and then I can enter my ex-girlfriend at that time. I was living in denial and then in confusion for a very long time. I even prayed to God, asking God not to make me gay when I was 16 years old because I was attracted to boys at school and I thought it was completely wrong. Anyway, I couldn't marry a woman because none of my relationships with women worked out – all of my ex-girlfriends cheated on me with someone else, which is totally understandable because I was not a straight men & in their subconscious mind, they probably knew it. That's why they figured out a way to satisfy themselves by hooking up with someone else. Anyway, now I'm happy with my sexuality and can face the truth of homosexuality. I came out when I was 30 years old and I have been dating men that I've met via GaysTryst gay hookup site for several years. I'm still looking for the one. I'm a very traditional person and I believe in monogamy. I think I'll get married one day." (Stephen I., 33, personal stylist, New York)

Experts' comments:

"GaysTryst is a legitimate gay hookup website. But it seems that its app has been removed by Apple & I can't find it on Google Play Store either. What's going on?" (Jade Seashell, creative writer and columnist)

"GaysTryst is a top player in the gay dating industry online. However, there aren't many positive reviews provided by its members about this gay hookup site, although there are some objective and unbiased reviews written by industry experts on the Internet." (Michael B. Wilson, director of

"I always cringe when I hear someone saying, 'If you choose that lifestyle…' to a gay man because sexuality is not a choice. Nobody can change or control their sexuality. On GaysTryst, gay guys have a safe environment where no one is judging these daters." (Curt Coch, CEO and Founder of

"Although GaysTryst is a gay hookup service, many gay men have found long-term partners via this platform." (Andy K., spokesperson of Findle gay travel app)

"Though GaysTryst is a popular gay hookup site, some members have complained that they can't delete their accounts. Perhaps this service isn't user-friendly enough – it's hard to find the delete button." (Don. Y. co-founder of

"GaysTryst is a highly responsive gay site and app. Unlike heterosexual dating apps and sites where women rarely respond to men's messages, GaysTryst's conversion rate is significantly higher – when men are dating men, it's easier for them to understand each other, so communication is definitely easier on a gay hookup app / site." (Elizabeth O., founder of HookupApps.Dating)

"I think GaysTryst has added real value to the LGBT community." (Alex Sergent, co-founder of BARE dating app, the first sexting app in the world)


Value for money
Members' quality

Executive Summary / Verdict:

Both gay men and bisexual men can join GaysTryst gay hookup app / site for free, but if you want to enjoy its main features, you'll need to buy a membership / subscription. Otherwise, most of its features are not available. Having said that, many gay daters have bought subscriptions because they can see the value offered by this platform. Some of their members are looking for long-term relationships rather than casual sexual encounters, so these people are more likely to invest in this financially. But if you don't think you should spend money on casual gay hook-ups, you don't have to join this app. So, this is totally up to you.

Quote: "Although GaysTryst doesn't have the best reputation in the gay hookup dating industry, many gay men have found what they want via this platform. Obviously, those who have had negative experiences with this service are more likely to write negative reviews online, whereas their happy customers almost never write reviews on the Internet, which is understandable because that's just human nature."
