Adult Friend Finder is one of the largest online dating communities for sexually liberated adults. With several million people using the site worldwide, you can be sure of finding an erotic partner whatever your tastes or preferences. It's free to register, create a profile and browse the site. Viewing profile details and contacting other people requires paid membership.

The Basics…

If you've used the internet for any amount of time, you've probably seen their ads before -- they seem to be everywhere. Adult Friendfinder is the biggest adult contact site in existence, "bar none". The company is owned by Penthouse Magazine.

There are over 5.6 million active members worldwide, who are singles, couples, or married people looking for discreet relationships, new partners or just no strings sex. There isn't a limit to the content placed on their website, so very explicit photos and chat can be expected.

Standard (free) Membership: What do you get?

The standard membership will only get you partial access. You won't be able to view full-size photos, videos, or make contact with others on the site (unless they are full-members who've paid to allow anyone to contact them).

Here's what you can do for free:

  • Look for profiles (basic and advanced searches)
  • Create a favorites list
  • Read and reply to emails sent to you from full members
  • Use the chat tool
  • View photo thumbnails
  • View profile summaries
  • Read other people's blogs and post comments

The bottom line is that if you're a standard member, your only option is to put-up a really good quality photo and wait for full-access members to contact you.

Cupid Preferences

After signing-up one of the first things you should do is customize your "cupid preferences". As well as showing you customized search results, based on your own choices, cupid preferences can be used to block unwanted emails.

In the cupid settings, you can set the basics such as age range, gender, sexual orientation and "what they are into sexually". Other settings such as lifestyle and race are there if you need them.

Your "profile preferences" page should be your next stop. Here you can customize just about everything: who can view you, who can see your purity test results, who can email you, and your profile visibility. Hidden mode allows you to view other people's profiles without them knowing about it.

Customize profile settings

Unlike many sites, profile customizations don't require paid membership on Adult Friendfinder.

Searching for People

AFF offers a massive range of tools and features that are designed to quickly get members talking with each other. The search page is easy to navigate. Simply select who you want to find; male, female or couple, and what you are looking for, whether that be 1-on-1 sex, erotic chat, or a discreet relationship (pretty much anything goes here), and then choose their location.

Gold members have several other options available to them, including physical characteristics, language, ethnicity, plus it allows filtering-out of profiles without photos.

As well as the search forms, there are other buttons like recent members, hottest photos, and new people near me.

Building up a network of friends and contacts is easy. Simply click the icons next to the profile you are interested in to add them to your favorites list. To initiate contact, you can send ice-breakers, including winks, flirts and even spanks! It's a quick and easy way to see if the member responds, and doesn't require the time of writing an email.

Even your hot list can be searched; handy if you've saved a lot of pages. There's also the option to show people similar to those in your hot list, but which you haven't seen yet -- the "suggested members" link can be found on your "My Hot List" page.

Communication

In order to use many of the interactive features, such as messaging, voice greetings and webcams, you will need to purchase a gold membership for at least 1 month.

Gold membership starts at $32.39, and as well as unlocking emailing and profile access, also allows you to view videos, webcam shows and private photos. An "add-on package" will also let you view on-demand adult movies.

Your "mail box" contains a range of options to help you manage your activities:

  • Auto-replies (set up an "out-of-office" response)
  • Filtering (block unwanted contacts)
  • Signatures (personalize your messages)

There's also a whole range of custom alerts that can be created and personalized to suit. You can customize the setting any way you choose, for example so that you are mailed whenever someone "hot lists" you, comments on your photo, or sends you a message.

Safety

As far as adult dating sites are concerned, Adult Friendfinder is one of the leaders in terms of privacy and safety matters. You can't really fault them; they have provided a range of options to help combat scams and fraud such as:

  • Identity verification
  • Customized email filtering and blocking
  • Full control of profile privacy settings
  • Private access photos

In Brief…

Adult Friendfinder is a massive site, with the some of the best features we've seen on any adult dating portal. With a range of customizations available you're in full control of your dating experience. The safety features on offer do go some way to combating spam and other unwanted activity.

As with other sites of this kind, men heavily outnumber women. As of the latest estimates, there are around 4 men for every woman. There are usually at least 50,000 members online at any given time, making it one of the most active internet communities to be found.

    Useless

    This site is a joke. I have been a member for 10 months. I flirt and go in the chat rooms. I had 5 responses of people being very rude, degrading and insulting me. Reporting anything on this site is a waste of time. I reported these people with proof of their responses and the site does nothing. Way too many cam girls, scammers, underage girls and prostitutes on this site wanting money. Again reporting them does nothing. No actions are ever taken. I also believe a lot of profiles have to be fake. How in 10 months and trying to contact about 1,000 women on there to chat, and never get a reply? Men do not waste your time or money on this site. I give it -10.

    This is one of the sites where you can find a suitable sex partner to enjoy your life whatever you missed in your growing up life due to lack of resources. I stay in Bangalore, Karnataka.
