Editor's Review:

AdultFriendFinder.com is probably the most well known adult dating site on the net. It is one of the longest running, most established adult dating sites around. Its members' database has grown to enormous proportions and is now one of the the largest in the industry. It also has one of the most comprehensive feature-sets available on any dating site - just check out the list of features above.

Adult FriendFinder is part of the FriendFinder network of dating sites, the most popular of which is AdultFriendFinder (for adult dates) and FriendFinder itself (for mainstream dating). The network also contains a larger number of regional sites - GermanFriendFinder, ItalianFriendFinder, etc., as well as a number of specialty sites, such as GayFriendFinder, Out Personals, LesbianPersonals.com and the popular fetish dating site Alt.com.

If you're interested in joining Adult FriendFinder, we strongly suggest you check out our No. 1 choice, Adult XXX Date, instead. Adult XXX Date has the same enormous database of members as Adult FriendFinder, so you'll find the exact same people on the site, but Adult XXX Date is the latest incarnation of the Adult FriendFinder website, with advanced features and a revamped look and feel to it. Why not check it out and see which one you prefer?

Adult Friend Finder comes in high on our adult dating list mainly because of its enormous members database - this is what counts more than anything after all! It has over 60 million active members, which puts it well ahead of its closest runner up in our list (which has 40 million members). Your chances of success on any adult dating site (just like dating in the real world) is very much a numbers game. The greater the pool of people you have to choose from, the better your chances of getting a date, and also the more picky you can be. So in reviewing these adult dating sites we put great stock in the size of their members' databases. In terms of numbers, very few sites beat AdultFriendFinder.

AdultFriendFinder has all the main features you should look for in an adult dating site, including many features that are not available elsewhere - see the list above for a full list of the features available.

You can build a large profile with as much or as little information as you like regarding your lifestyle, interests, sexual aspirations and more. The more detail you provide, the better your chances at being matched with members who suit your desires, and vice-versa. As well as written information, you can upload multiple photos, including nude and explicit shots. In fact, the site provides a filter so you can remove explicit or nude photos as you browse, if you prefer to keep those things for a later time. Photos tend to be of high quality and members have taken the time to make sure their photos show them in the best way possible.

As well as photos, members can upload videos, giving them the opportunity to express themselves. This is also your chance to show off your best attributes, enticing members to message you through the use of your voice and body language. This is a really useful way of getting some attention and showing people what you’re all about.

You can find members by performing searches. AdultFriendFinder.com offers one of the most in depth searches we’ve seen, with dozens of options to help target people who suit your social, physical and sexual needs. Whatever your preferences, you should be able to find matches here.

As well as searching, you can also receive automated matches, which are produced based on the information you provide in your profile. If you prefer women of a certain age or ethnicity, for example, it will be more likely to match you with those women. This is a time saver and also allows you to view profiles which you might have missed.

As you explore the site you’ll see Gold members identified, which is useful because it shows you who will be able to reply to your messages. There’s also a very handy Standard Contacts upgrade which you can pay for, which allows free members to reply to your messages. If you see a new member (who hasn’t upgraded) and you’d like to talk to them before anyone else, this upgrade is a real bonus.

Adult Friend Finder have really capitalized on their enormous members' database by offering a variety of tools to allow members to contact one another and play together online as a prelude perhaps to meeting in person - these include the enormous chat rooms, which are broken down as follows:

  • IMC - the Instant Messaging Chat network, allowing you to chat with other members using AdultFriendFinder's built-in html-based or flash-based instant messaging tool. If a member has a webcam available, you may also chat using voice and/or video chat. You can filter the members in the chat room by gender (man, woman, couple, groups, TS/TV/TG), their age and whether or not they have a webcam and are currently broadcasting. You can also sort the results by age or distance. When we visited there were over 15,000 members chatting on the IMC!
  • Adult Chat Rooms. Pick a chatroom by geographic location or by topic
  • Interest Group Chat, allowing you to chat with other members who share a similar interest. When we visited there were over 138,000 interest groups on AdultFriendFinder, comprising over 2.5 million members and over 10 million discussions! You can browse the interest groups by region or topic, or simply search for a group by keyword.
  • Live Model Chat powered by AdultFriendFinder's sister site, Cams.com. The models come in all sorts of categories, but a private chat in this room will cost you! For a limited time, Gold Members receive $10-$25 of free credits for live nude model chat.

AdultFriendFinder, like most adult dating sites, allows you to choose from a Standard (Free) or Gold membership. Being a standard member allows you only limited access, but will allow you to get a feel for the site and see what it's like. All you need to do to become a standard member is fill out a short form, answering a few multiple choice questions about yourself and write a few lines about who you are and what you're looking for in a playmate. Don't spend too long on this, as you can easily update it later. Free standard membership is only intended to give you a feel for the site and nothing more.

In order to interact with other members, including e-mailing them, messaging them, and chatting to them over your webcam, you will need to upgrade to a premium-level Gold membership. The advantages of Gold membership are many and varied and will really let you get the most out of the site, but the main reason you'll want to upgrade will be to initiate contact with other members or reply to other members who've contacted you. So Gold membership may be essential if you wish hook up with other members in the real world (off-line).

Adult entertainment is also a major feature of Adult Friend Finder. Upgraded members can check out classic and modern adult movies. There’s plenty of range and you can find what you’re looking for based on your personal sexual preferences. Other entertainment options are available in the form of model cam performances, in which professional models have live erotic shows for your pleasure. These may cost extra, depending on what the model wishes to charge. Gold Members currently receive $10-$25 of free credits for live nude model chat in a special offer. Members can also use their webcams to offer broadcasts, and many of these are free of charge.

Many exhibitionists on AdultFriendFinder choose to broadcast their webcams publicly and, believe it or not, you can watch these members playing live on their webcams without having to upgrade your subscription. Watching other members indulging in various sexual acts live on their webcams is highly-addictive and is a bit like watching Big Brother - only X-rated! You can access the webcams by selecting "Video" in the drop down menu and then "Live Member Webcams". Once inside, you can filter the webcams by gender (man, woman, man+man, woman+woman, man+woman, groups or TS/TV/TG). You can also search the webcams by member's gender, location and age, and sort the results according to newest broadcast, distance from you, the number of members watching the broadcast, or the webcam broadcast's user rating. From here you can also send the members a quick message and access their full profiles. When we visited, there were over 1,600 members broadcasting publicly on their webcams!

The joining fees for Adult Friend Finder are very competitive, especially when you consider all the advantages Adult Friend Finder has over other similar sites in this category, which include:

  • Over 60 million members online - it can't be overemphasized that with so many members to choose from, AdultFriendFinder is a hub for people looking to hook up.
  • Extensive chat rooms - with over 60 million members, AdultFriendFinder's chat rooms are the busiest adult-related chatrooms in the world.
  • Groups and Discussion boards - many other sites don't have these, but they're a nice feature and add an extra dimension to the site. Whatever kinky fetishes you're into, you're bound to find a discussion board or two talking about it, and with so many members, chances are there may even be a group in your local area looking to help you indulge in it! You may search for discussion boards and local groups by geographical location or by keyword.
  • ConfirmID - probably one of the most useful and yet overlooked features that AdultFriendFinder has, and one that is lacking on most other adult dating sites. ConfirmID is a free third-party verification service that confirms a member's non-identifying attributes, like gender and age. This establishes trust, particularly on personal ads. This adds a dimension of safety to the site, which is particularly important for any female members, and gives you added confidence that the person you're talking to is who he claims to be. If you're a male member of AdultFriendFinder, then obtaining a free ConfirmID certificate can significantly boost your chances of success with the opposite sex.
  • Live member webcam broadcasts, as discussed above, is like Big Brother only X-rated!
  • Post your own adult blog or read someone else's blog. This is an emerging feature on many adult dating sites.
  • Adult Friend Finder's Sex Academy, helping you achieve your potential online through a number of workshops to help you in a number of different areas, such as helping you get more success online with AdultFriendFinder, helping you acquire greater sex appeal, and so on.
  • The Online Magazine, updated more regularly than on most other sites, with lots of features, articles and hot gossip.

Perhaps most importantly, AdultFriendFinder has genuine profiles of genuine people. Far too many other adult dating sites have been accused again and again of using fake profiles of sexy female members in order to entice male members to pay to upgrade their subscriptions. Male members upgrade in order to reply to the e-mails sent to them by these non-existent women (otherwise known as fembots), but once they upgrade, they hear nothing more from the female members who e-mailed them. This kind of practice is rife within the industry and gives the whole adult dating industry a bad name. No dating site can guarantee that all its member profiles are genuine. However, dating sites seem to be governed by one of three policies: (i) actively seek out and ban fake profiles; (ii) don't worry about fake profiles, as long as the cash keeps rolling in; (iii) create fake profiles (or fembots), in order to entice men to upgrade their subscriptions. We know from experience that AdultFriendFinder follow the first type of policy, as they do their best to get rid of any fake profiles which they find and are one of the only adult dating networks that do not use fembots. In short, you can be assured that the profiles on Adult FriendFinder and all its sister sites are real.This is just one of the many reasons why AdultFriendFinder has remained in business for around 20 years and has amassed more than 60 million members.

Update: We recommend that anyone thinking of joining Adult FriendFinder should now instead consider joining our No. 1 rated site Adult XXX Date. It is part of the same network of adult dating sites, with the same enormous members' database and zero-tolerance policy to scams, fembots and fake-profiles. Adult XXX Date has over 70 million members and benefits from the latest feature set and advanced design.
