Adult FriendFinder - 2021 Review, Why is it So Popular?
So you’ve just signed up for a new dating app. You’ve gone through the process of setting up your profile, filling out the dreaded “about me” section, and uploading your photos, only to find out that the “millions of active users” are just bots and other men. We’ve all been there, and I’m pretty sure we’re all sick of it.
It shouldn’t be so hard to find a woman who just wants to hook up, and this is where Adult FriendFinder claims to be different – so I signed up for a Gold membership to find out if it’s really worth its weight. In this review, I’ll answer some common online dating questions and talk about my experience with Adult FriendFinder, in my opinion, one of the best hookup apps in 2021.
Adult FriendFinder - Best For Hassle-Free Hookups
A lot of the traditional dating apps out there are chock-full of users who have one goal – find a relationship, delete the app, and live happily ever after. Sure, there are some people who are looking for hookups, but let’s be real – most of them are dudes.
Other apps and websites that claim to be good for finding women who want casual sex are just glorified porn sites. I certainly don’t want to wade through a sea of dicks and unsolicited pop-up windows in order to meet someone, and your chances of actually finding someone from these sites are slim to none.
Adult FriendFinder is the only site I’ve used that connected me with dozens of real women in my area who are DTF. This makes sense – AFF boasts one of the world’s largest communities of people who are just looking for casual sex, nothing more. And hey, if you do manage to find the love of your life after hooking up, it’s a win-win for you!
Why is Adult FriendFinder Better than the Competition?
Once you sign up, you’ll see for yourself that there really is no competition.AFF has an incredibly specific advanced search that allows you to get as detailed as you want about who exactly you are looking for – down to cup size. Here are some other benefits of using AFF over other dating services:
- Millions of users
- 24/7 Live Chat Customer Support
- Both mobile app and desktop site
- Fetish, kink, and alternative lifestyle (like swinging) friendly
- Women are friendly, willing, and eager to meet in person
Of course, no dating app can be 100% without faults. I did come across some bots, fake profiles, and messages that seemed scammy. Some of the other less-than-admirable things I came across were:
- Some pages/links redirect you to another website.
- There are some women that just simply weren’t my type that still reached out to me.
- AFF did have some security issues back in 2015, which have since been resolved.
- You won’t get much out of the free version, but we’ll talk more about that in the next section.
Most hookup apps out there boast ‘hot singles in your area’ – but 95% of those hot singles are actually just men. The most notable thing I noticed while using Adult FriendFinder is that their community has a really decent balance of men and women– so it won’t be hard for you to find someone that suits your needs.
Adult FriendFinder Features I Liked
AFF offers the standard features most dating sites do, like direct messaging, video and photo upload, commenting capabilities, and community discussion forums - but what sets AFF apart are the features other dating sites just don’t have:
- Live Member Webcams -No, these aren’t just live model webcams - these are other realusers who broadcast live video streams. I won’t bore you with the details, but these can get pretty risque, pretty quick.
- Adult Chat Rooms -Yes, we’re talking about live chat rooms on any topic you can imagine. Your favorite topic not there? Start a new chat room!
- Dating Stories -Prefer to read your erotica? Head over to this section and read stories about other user’s encounters - real and imagined. Maybe even write your own.
- Send Gifts and Tips -Have you found another user you’re interested in getting to know a little better? Adult FriendFinder helps you to break the ice by allowing you to send virtual gifts and tips to other users.
- Contests -I don’t know about you, but I can get a little competitive. Participating in AFF’s photo/video contests is a sure-fire way to have some fun and find other users who enjoy having a good time.
- Kink Search -If you’re looking for a particular dynamic, or have a specific kink, Adult FriendFinder allows you to search for other users who are just as into your kink as you are.
And the list goes on, but for the sake of leaving something to the imagination, I’ll stop here. You might be surprised at the other features you’ll find when you do your own digging.
Breaking Down the Cost
Registering for the standard membership is free, and includes several benefits such as liking and commenting on other people’s posts, using search filters, watching videos on the homepage, and joining public live streams. If that’s all you’re looking for, the free membership will work great for you.
While I did get a few messages from women in my area when I was using AFF’s free membership, I’m gonna be real with you guys – you won’t actually be able to send or respond to messages if you don’t upgrade to Adult FriendFinder’s Gold membership. In most cases, this could feel like a total cock block, but AFF’s premium memberships are affordable.Let’s take a look at the cost of each subscription package:
- 1 Month - At $27.95 per month, Adult FriendFinder’s month-by-month option is good for guys who are curious about using their services, but might not be ready to commit.
- 3 Month -If you’re willing to drop a small chunk of change on yourself, this package is a good way to save a little more than you would with their month-to-month subscription. $19.95 per month (billed every 3 months) saves you about 25 bucks overall.
- 12 Months -In my opinion, this is the best package AFF offers. For just $14.95 per month, you’ll have access to all of the same premium features in the other packages, for less than $0.50 a day. This subscription is billed yearly at about $180.
Adult FriendFinder offers more payment options than any other dating/hookup site I’ve used. As per usual, you can choose to pay with a Visa, Discover, or Mastercard. You can also link your checking account if you are located in the United States, or direct debit if you are located in the EU. AFF even accepts mail-in orders via check, cash, or money order. Talk about easy (not to mention discreet)!
Say “So Long” to Swiping with Adult FriendFinder
No dating site or hookup app is perfect – but Adult FriendFinder is one of the best because it actually works. There’s no need to waste your time swiping through profiles of bots, dudes, or women who aren’t looking for the same thing you are. With AFF’s massive community, you can expect that you’ll find real women in your area who want to meet you, no strings attached– so why wait?
