Our conclusion for AdultFriendFinder
BeNaughty Try out for free!
There is no official number, but AdultFriendFinder has several million active users in Canada. There's definitely something for everyone, from swingers and cheaters, exhibitionists and voyeurs, to fetishists for every fetish, which is great for those free sprits out there... But then there's also: professional camgirls, hobby hookers and good old fashioned prostitutes. If you are only interested in private sex dates, this is probably not the best place to look for them.
Summary AdultFriendFinder is ancient in internet years. Founded in the US as the more innocent FriendFinder in 1996, it quickly became specialized in sex contacts once its founder recognized the popularity of explicit content. Today, AdultFriendFinder has a huge international database with more than 50 million members. Whilst the US is still the biggest market, Canada isn't far behind. However, the company took several hits in the past years, mainly due to several hacker scandals, which made personal details of almost 4 million members public. Hence, if you register, you should - as always on the internet - be smart about the information you share.

Chances of success
Essentially, AdultFriendFinder puts men looking for authentic erotic content in contact with uninhibited women... and makes them pay for the privilege. At the very least, male members have to pay for a membership to enable contact, but more often than not, female members also have financial interests. Of course, not all women are professionals, but the fact that they have to pay exactly the same as men suggests that most of them are not exactly your girl next door. After all, there are plenty of sex dating websites where women get access to everything for free. However, admittedly none of those sites are as straightforward and explicit as AdultFriendFinder.
If you want to shake off every last taboo, AdultFriendFinder offers a corner of the internet where seemingly everything is allowed. Even if there are restrictions, they are inconsistently enforced by administrators. Every imaginable kind of erotic content can be found on the site - from sexy nude photos to erotic chats and striptease videos to blogs and groups on every conceivable sex topic ... there is really nothing that can't be found somewhere on the site. The biggest danger of falling down the AdultFriendFinder rabbit hole is probably that you start by "just checking out" a profile only to emerge five hours, 20 profiles, 100 photos and 13 videos later – and still not having seen everything on offer. For men who are used to rejection or not receiving replies elsewhere, it's nice to find that AdultFriendFinder's female members are happy to communicate. Even without a personal contact, the profiles offer far more than the relatively tame profiles of the serious casual dating sites, which don't allow explicit content. As long as you do not mind extremely sexy, even pornographic content, there's plenty of fun to be had!
Security and seriousness
Value for money
Without a paid membership, you won't get far on AdultFriendFinder. Even women have to pay – which is quite unusual in sex dating - but the prices are relatively reasonable and there is a wide range of memberships and payment methods - even without a subscription! Occasionally it's possible to get a free membership through specific actions or by winning contests, so all in all, AdultFriendFinder offers good value for money.
FAQ for AdultFriendFinder
AdultFriendFinder is the Canadian arm of the world's largest sex dating website. The American site has been around for over 20 years and more than 5 million people are registered globally. The site offers very explicit content, from photos and videos, to chats, blogs and groups, often decidedly pornographic in nature.
Apart from the international success of the company and its decades in business, unfortunately there's little to shore up the reputation of AdultFriendFinder. The site has made headlines multiple times due to hacker attacks and does not use the highest possible security standards. The fact that many registered female members are financially motivated is an open secret - at least the possibility to earn money with videos is openly advertised, even if this commercial aspect is euphemistically referred to as "broadcast for tips".
AdultFriendFinder is a world leader in social networking with erotic and pornographic amateur content. Sexy profiles with extremely revealing profile pics, erotic and pornographic videos, private chats and group discussions are all freely available. The website provides for any sexual preference, for every erotic fantasy and fetish.
Positive experiences await those that find serious casual dating agencies too tame and who have no problem with paying, even beyond the membership fees.
No. If you don't register, you will not get past the AdultFriendFinder homepage. You can't even see content like blogs or profile previews without registration. Registration is free and fast.
Not really. Not even women can use AdultFriendFinder for free. There's only occasional exceptions for certain groups of users (usually women or couples) to get a free membership, for example by creating an Ice Breaker message, which will be automatically sent to make contact. Regular competitions are another opportunity to win a premium AdultFriendFinder membership.
Since a free Gold Membership is only offered sometimes, for some members, under certain conditions, a fairly small part of AdultFriendFinder is usable free of charge. After logging in, you can see profile thumbnails (but not whole profiles), read member blogs (which often contain very explicit images) and read group discussions and magazine articles.
AdultFriendFinder offer many different types of membership packages and also the option to use certain services without a subscription. In addition, you can choose between several payment methods. To use all areas of the website, to view profiles and to write messages, you need a Gold Membership (from 14.95 CAD / month). Without subscription, individual contacts can be unlocked for 2.95 CAD. In addition, there are upgrades such as standard contacts (makes your own profile visible for standard members), profile highlights and an adult movie streaming package (from 12.95 CAD / month). All of the above can be paid by credit card, direct debit, bank transfer, check, or money order.
Yes. AdultFriendFinder offers many different payment methods, which makes the payment easier if no credit card is available.
You can only contact AdultFriendFinder via a feedback form. There is currently no customer service hotline. There is a phone number on the website of the company behind AFF, FriendFinder Networks, but they will not help you with customer care issues.
No. The registration is free and you can remain a basic member for an unlimited period of time, but to contact others, you have to either pay to view individual profiles or buy (or win) a Gold Membership.
There's no secret formula to success on AdultFriendFinder – in fact, there's only one surefire way to success and it's paved with $$$s. Anyone who pays for a Gold Membership at AdultFriendFinder automatically has access to loads of erotic and pornographic content. Anyone who is willing to pay the professionals eagerly advertising themselves on the site will have no problem finding an online or even an offline date. Members looking for private dates without financial incentives, however, have a harder time, but can pay to make their profile more visible. Money talks.
Your success rate depends strongly on your expectations. Compared to serious casual dating sites, the chance of a private date without paying are comparatively low.
No, we've never seen vouchers, coupons, promotions or discounts for AdultFriendFinder. Sometimes you'll find an offer to gain a free membership through certain activities (like competitions) and you can buy gift vouchers, but who gives their friends a sex dating membership – especially when it costs more than the normal subscription price? Thats what we call a ripoff!
Subscriptions are available from 14.95 Dollars per month, but it's possible to view individual profiles from $2,95. AdultFriendFinder subscriptions are priced well and the pay-as-you-go option is a welcome change from the usual subscription models.
If you like explicit content and are not primarily interested in real-life dates with other members, AdultFriendFinder is probably right for you. At Victoria Milan, there are no explicit photos, videos or pornographic content, but the prospect of a real date is better.
There are of course fakes registered at AdultFriendFinder, but - and this really needs to be emphasized – there are ironically less of what we would normally consider fakes (profiles set up for women that don't exist in real life, that no man will ever meet, used to squeeze money out of potential suitors under false pretenses). Most of the profiles that could be categorized as “fake” are by real women who use the platform to get in touch with paying customers (for example to set up sex cam chats or real-life sex dates). Fake or not, men should always be prepared for female members to have financial interests.
AdultFriendFinder does very little to clean up their own database (of course, they'd prefer to have lots of members). While there is an abuse report form, this is mainly aimed at tracking down members who undermine AdultFriendFinder's business model.
While there is no AdultFriendFinder app, most of the features can also be accessed via the mobile website. In addition, you can switch to the full web version even when you are using your mobile phone, so you have the full range of AdultFriendFinder services available on the go.
Cancelling a paid AdultFriendFinder membership is as easy as deactivating the automatic renewal. You can do this in your profile under "My Account." After the subscription has ended, no further payments are due once the current membership expires. The profile is automatically downgraded to a standard membership. The deletion of an account is equally uncomplicated. It only takes a few clicks - enter "My account, "click on "close account," then on the next page, click on "delete account". Make sure you you've cancelled your subscription beforehand!
