1. AdultFriendFinder review: summary
A service that truly stands out from the crowd, AdultFriendFinder is a one stop shop for all you ‘adult’ needs. The broad offer includes dating, chat, video exchange, content, discussion forums and more. You will never be bored on this site.
We took the time to really look in-depth at the performance of this site and get to the bottom of what is has to offer.
2. Customer Friendliness at AdultFriendFinder
Customer friendliness is a very critical issue with online dating sites. The degree to which sites respond to the fears and problems their customers have, differs massively between sites. How easy is it to get hold of customer services? How promptly do they handle customer enquiries. Does the company use auto renewal?
Getting hold of Customer Support with AdultFriendFinder
There is a considerable FAQ area on the AdultFriendFinder service and it is not bad at handling most of the issues you are likely to encounter. By navigating through these pages you can also access a customer service center pro-forma where you can e-mail your questions to the team. We could find no customer support telephone number on this site.
Look and feel of AdultFriendFinder
On the design side, AdultFriendFinder is enjoyable if a bit cluttered. The member start page is full with offerings and links and newsfeeds. Lots to get distracted by, but perhaps not the easiest to navigate.
The AdultFriendFinder App
AdultFriendFinder has a mobile app for iphones and a mobile version that works well with mobile browsers. Both these versions focus more on the dating than the content part.

3. AdultFriendFinder User Test
The AdultFriendFinder snapshot test thoroughly explores all elements of AdultFriendFinder. To come up with a complete view of the user experience we set up a profile on the site and used it as an ordinary user (man seeks woman). Following this we had a look at all the features and embarked upon some first flirts.
On top of this, we had a look at AdultFriendFinder’s reputation online, reading through reviews to build an impression of how ordinary users have experienced the product.
First impressions of AdultFriendFinder
AdultFriendFinder has an engaging and fun member area that is full of things to do and temptations. It's got to be one of the most 'all bells and whistles' member home pages you can find on the web, not least because of the large amount of pornographic material visible right from the get go.
AdultFriendFinder blurs the boundaries between dating service and porn site in quite a clever way. The service is totally international and invites its members from all over the world to submit videos and pictures of themselves. It makes the service very exciting and gets you in the right frame of mind for instant chats with some of the girls online.
The service really aims to be a one stop shop for all your erotic needs. It is a dating service, a porn site, an advice service and a forum for erotic topics.

Number of members in your area Test
To ensure a notion of the number of members online, we ran a interaction check. Dating websites come in a lot of varied formats, but always the most important thing for the customer is how many conversations he or she has. How many individuals get in communication and how many people answer to conversation openers. Our contact ranking develops a value against this crucial measure for every dating service we evaluate. AdultFriendFinder did very comfortably in this test. There were plenty of members online and it looked like a good distribution of users over the land.
What the profiles look like on AdultFriendFinder
We thought the profile quality was good. Many profiles had lots of pictures and videos as well as some personal information. The type of woman online was very varied and suggested there should be someone for everyone. The only concern we had was that it could be hard to tell what was a real user versus users who may be using the platform to sell other services.
Are there are any fake profiles or scammers on AdultFriendFinder?
Scammers are usually a problem for nearly all dating companies and often the test of a service is not whether they have an issue, but how severe it is. Our impression of AdultFriendFinder was reassuring. AdultFriendFinder has a pretty impressive procedure of profile approval and the majority of profiles seemed real to us.
4. Functions and profiles on AdultFriendFinder
It's pretty easy to get going with the AdultFriendFinder service. Registration takes no more than 5 mins with some basic questions about age and location. You have to confirm your email address to get into the service so don't use a fake one; this won't work.
Having visited your email account and confirmed it, you will be redirected back to the member home page. This screen is a full of activity and interest. There are loads of images of naked girls everywhere - so don't do this at work! Some of the videos and images are free to view, other stuff you have to become a Premium Member to view, or there are one off payment options - per bits of content or profiles.
Features include a magazine advice section and discussion forum. Here are some of the main features you might use:
Live Member Webcams
Your chance to have some seriously naughty exchanges with girls all over the world. It does what it says on the tin and not only allows you to view members, but also to comment and make requests.

Member Activity Feed
A constant stream of new offerings and imagry being created by members. View comments, pictures and links to fresh movie material.

Live Model Chat
A means by which AdultFriendFinder cleverly intertwines dating and porn is with this feature. It allows you to view professionally made porn and instruct paid for models to undress.

There are frequent contests on AdultFriendFinder. These are mostly concerned with posting and voting for best member content.

Of course it's not all about fancy features or games. There is also the possibility to search through the member database and find people that you might want to chat with or date. You can swap messages and pictures in private and arrange dates with those you like.
5. Is AdultFriendFinder value for money?
Most dating websites start with a free introduction to their product, but to get full use of the site and really communicate with others you have to pay for Premium Membership. AdultFriendFinder is no exception and to talk with your partner recommendations, you are going to have to pay. We wouldn’t question the necessity of this. Customers will always need to pay up if they want to use a decent service. Rather, we concentrate on how AdultFriendFinder scores on a ‘value for money’ reckoning. Is it reasonably priced overall?
- Communicate freely with members
- Watch hot videos
- Comment on videos and pics
- A 12 month subscription costs $9.95 per month
- A 3 months subscription costs $14.95 per month
- To sign up just for one month only costs $29.95
*these prices were current at the time of writing, but may change
We suggest you go for the six month offer. It’s a substantial up front price, but once that’s out of the way you’ll be able to relax and take your time to use the service well.
Final tip: Just because you are on an adult dating site don’t think that women are going to be impressed if you start conversations with straight offers or lewd pictures. While women on more adult dating services are surely more adventurous than most, they may also be more insecure and scared and actually need more gentle handling than those in ‘softer’ environments. So: be nice! – at least at first.
