One of the first online adult dating sites and certainly one of the best known, AdultFriendFinder has had a lot of hype surrounding it for many years. However, we decided to find out if the site really did live up to expectations and found that there is a mix of good and bad. Firstly, the sign up process was painless and a standard membership can be obtained for free, however, it is quite limited in features compared to the paid membership options. Second, the sheer number of members in a local area is overwhelming and initially very exciting for new members, however, we found that a lot of the profiles were of users that hadn’t logged on for months. Finally and more positively, the free chat rooms and live webcam rooms were constantly teeming with people who were more than happy to chat and the active forums seemed to be the best place to find hook-ups.
There are tons of features available on AdultFriendFinder, the only problem being you have to pay to access the very best ones. A free standard membership offers features such as:
• The ability to reply to personal messages but not send them
• Basic search options by standard form or username
• Upload videos and photos
• Full access to the chat rooms, webcam rooms, and forums
If you decide to upgrade to the Gold membership, the feature list expands dramatically and includes:
• The ability to message someone first
• Advanced search options
• View complete profiles of other members
• Send friend requests and flirts
• View video and photos in full-screen mode
What We Like
There is plenty to like about AdultFriendFinder even with a standard free membership. The sheer volume of members’ makes it easy to find people who share your sexual preferences be it swinging, BDSM, cross dressing, group sex, or anything else you can imagine. The chat rooms and forums are also constantly buzzing with people who are extremely chatty, making them great places to hang out.
What We Don’t Like
Locked features for standard members such as initiating a chat can be a pain when you find someone you like the look of, however, the Gold membership price isn’t as high as some other sites and can be worth paying. Beyond that, scrolling through endless dormant profiles can be disheartening but the activity in the chat rooms and forums makes up for that.
AdultFriendFinder is still one of the top adult dating sites around and has far more members than its competitors. The ability to find pages of people within a certain geographic location, who share the same sexual preferences, or who have a similar personality to you is something that not many other adult dating sites can offer.
