What on Earth is an Intimacy Request?

19. April 2012 by Dasha 0 Comments

Many members of Hot Russian Brides are stumped by the term “Intimacy Request.” Surely men don’t have to submit a formal request to become “intimate” with a Russian woman, right? Of course not. Though submitting an Intimacy Request might sound titillating, it’s actually the first step a gentleman must take in order to visit a special lady in person.


An Intimacy Request is essentially a request to exchange personal contact information with a woman and possibly make plans to meet. A gentleman must be a Qualified Member and IMBRA approved before he can submit an Intimacy Request.


The International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA) is a United States statute that requires background checks before speech or other forms of communication are permitted between American citizens and foreign nationals (though we require all members, not just Americans, to complete the IMBRA process). A Qualified Member is a gentleman with a current premium membership (Silver, Gold, or Platinum) who has used at least 1,000 credits. Click to view an IMBRA tutorial video.


Once a lady approves an Intimacy Request, she and a gentleman can communicate off Hot Russian Brides and make plans to meet in person. There’s no specific timeline for submitting requests, though it’s generally best for gentleman to establish a special connection with a woman first, rather than firing off requests after an email or two.
