Is a legit site?


AFF is one of the most well known adult dating brands out there, boasting global membership numbers in the high millions (it claims to have almost 100m member photos), a huge team of staff and a marketing budget to match. Yet despite these impressive facts, one of the most common questions we get asked is whether AFF is a scam.

Is AdultFriendFinder Legit?

Let's dispel this myth immediately – is AFF legit? Absolutely. This is not a trick, it's a genuine hookup site that really aims to get you laid. They even have a guarantee proudly displayed after you register offering three months free if you don't find sex on Of course, that doesn't mean it's a brilliant site (and it comes with some small print), but it does mean they believe that their site is an environment where women can successfully meet men for no-strings fun. And incidentally, although the site is far from perfect, we think they do a pretty good job.

Joining is simple; a two-step sign up where you add your basic details along with some introductory profile information, a nice touch as so often these hookup sites can be filled with completely empty profiles. Once you get inside, prices are lower than we've seen when doing other dating site reviews and it's cheaper when you commit to a longer period (you need three months before the guarantee kicks in). You don't have to pay at this point, you can continue on and take a look around first. You have to validate your email before members can find you, which is good as it means the people you're looking at, in theory, have validated theirs, cutting down on people creating AFF scam accounts.

Adding a photo is simple, browse your files or take webcam pic. They also suggest you add a photo with your name to show you are who you say you are. It's refreshing to see an adult dating site taking this stuff seriously and again shows that, as a business, is legit. The site design is a little outdated for me, but it's functional. The main navigatoin is easy on desktop and mobile. Interestingly, they have a points system in place (500 for confirming ID to prove you are a genuine member), which can be redeemed for alerts that let you know when someone has read your messages, sending virtual gifts, profile highlighting, etc. It's a nice idea that brings element of gamification to the site.

AdultFriendFinder Features

AFF has a lot of features, in comparison to other casual dating sites we've reviewed – for example, you can run searches via a Tinder style 'Hot or Not' game or 'Kink Search' (where you can search by particular fetishes). The good news is that these options, along with the Advanced Search, can be used before you upgrade (most sites require a subscription).

To view a profile you don't necessarily have to upgrade, either – you have the option to make a micropayment to gain access. However, when it comes to sending messages it's the same deal as most – you need a full membership. There's a bunch of other things too, such as Community Pages where anyone can add blog posts (25m blog posts to date) a “Sex Academy” for tips and tricks, member competitions and even live video broadcasts of members. The site works well on mobile but should you want an app, there is the option to download the AllFriendFinder app to access this site and others that the company runs.

    If u see the same picture, side by side if the same women with 2 different names and 2 different ages, u can come up with your own conclusions. Site is bullcrap!

  • 2022-08-25 05:36:36, Nick (Man, 67)



    Even though it's supposed to be one of the better sites out there, it has way too many scammers and catphishers. A lot of profiles have Stateside locations or addresses, but once you start a correspondence with the women, they say they're actually in Ghana or some other third-world country and eventually ask for money in some way or other. Also, many profiles that initially seem promising end up being deactivated before anything meaningful starts. Overall a waste of money.

    Scammed Everytime


    I was contacted and got ready to leave for a date three times; each time the woman would then text me and ask for money or a gift of some kind, without ever giving a date location. Each one then deactivated after I talked them along and didn't give money. I was contacted twice by women who said they wanted to meet, and then announced before I left they were prostitutes and wanted to know if I'd have the money when I arrive. Contacted over fifteen times by women that said they wanted to give me a massage with a happy-ending. I've been on the site for a week, and I really believe not one, not even a single one that contacted me was a real profile. I wish I'd only signed up for one month instead of three; I shut of automatic subscribe.

    Total Scam


    AFF is an absolute scam. It wasn't always quite this bad but whatever happened, the site is trash now. This lesson cost me $50. My loss, your gain. AVOID

  • 2021-12-07 05:08:06, Robert (Man, 67)

    Don't waste your money


    I tried this site twice. meaning I paid for membership twice. Many of the women wanted a threesome with their partner . That's not my thing. Other's I'm sure were fake profiles trying to get you to sign up for some other web site after they answered you. A few were looking for long term relationships and should have been on instead of an adult site. Like most adult sites-mostly hype and smoke and mirrors

  • 2021-06-07 23:36:50, Jim (Man, 62)

    Credit card needed


    I'm not happy at all with any of these sites. Every chick that I want to meet wants me to go to another site and put in a credit card number for verification. What kind of BS is that? More like a prostitution site. I'm going back to the clubs/bars.

  • 2018-08-19 17:38:50, George K. (Man, 58)



    I'm a kinky freak. Let's get that straight from the off! The more risque the better. Submission, edgeplay, flogging, pretty much all fetishes LOL!!! This site is ideal for me. Met some interesting people and really enjoy the group forums and some of the chats that happen – enlightening to say the least! In the part of the world where I live there would be no way to satisfy my needs if it wasnt for sites like this so yep, im pretty freakin grateful to be honest!

  • 2018-07-19 03:48:11, Ron W. (Man, 36)



    It's bland. You sign up hoping for a good time and it's just....meh. Nothing special, think twice.

  • 2018-02-10 01:36:34, Cool Guy w/ Hot Wife (Man, 54)

    Decent enough swinger hangout


    Alright site. Wife happy for me to use it to set up a threesome so here's hoping ha ha. Ok then, cheers.

  • 2018-02-10 01:34:05, Dan (Man, 49)

    Couples & three-ways a plenty!!!


    One of our contacts from our local group mentioned aff as an interesting site to try and so far ive been impressed. High time that there was a site to help us meet new people that arent aware of the community we're involved with or any of the dogging spots we visit. Not vital if you have the connections but if you're looking for new opportunities then it's definitely something to look into.

  • 2018-01-07 16:56:50, Lewis Smith (Man, 43)

    Where R all the hotties????!!!!


    Only birds in my area are pure mingers. Wouldnt shag them with yours. When I search from london or glasgow theirs loads of hot birds but here in Inverness it's a joke really, unless your into milfs I suppose lol!!!! not my style eh.

  • 2017-11-02 11:36:41, S.T.JR (Man, 31)

    Below average site exp


    Read plenty of good reviews so thot it would rock but my exp has been quite dull tbh. Maybe im doing sumthing wrong?

  • 2017-10-05 02:13:11, AFF-User Septmber/October 2017 (Man, 41)

    Not as good as i'd hoped


    Had high expectations for AFF but no luck so far, been almost two weeks. A few chats but no sex. Disapointed :-(

  • 2017-09-27 22:23:20, CM (Woman, 35)

    Put off


    After reading this review I was going to give this site a try, but then I read the comments and there's no way I want to risk hooking up with guys like the ones commenting.

  • 2017-09-10 20:21:39, Cyclone (Man, 49)

    So many totally fake- not entirely, here


    So my first experience with this site? Met a woman who I eventually married. She came on as a member just saying "I got to get laid" in her header. I won her over and GOD DAMN was she hot and fun right off. She died earlier this year so I went back to the site just looking for sex. Results weren't as good. This site has the same number of BOTS and fake profiles as others and are so easy to see through. Because of my wife I know that there are real girls here, just have to be patient and not waste your time with ones who post obvious studio photos and write very generic profiles about finding the man of their dreams. Pass don't waste your time. But gold here if you can find it!

  • 2017-08-11 14:02:32, John (Man, 41)

    Great site


    I like AFF one of the best sites.

  • 2017-08-06 17:35:07, Paul T (Man, 50)

    2 OUT OF 5


    Site looks good and everything and there do seem to be some real chicks but ive been trying to get laid all week and im still ending up on porn sites every night of the week!!! Ill keep doing what I can because I paid for a month but not feeling optimistic.

  • 2017-07-29 17:06:52, david stanton (Man, 48)

    Good value if you think about it


    For what you pay its worth stumping up the spondoolies and checking out the prospects in your area for a month at least. Ive paid a lot more for a lot worse put it that way. With AFF you get a decent chance with real women and most people out there know a friend of a friend who has actually got his hole from this site. For the price of sinking a few brewskis you get a month of opportunity and you can even get cheaper deals if you keep an eye out for their offers and stuff. I'd say it's an 8/10.

    AFF Review – Glasgow area UK


    Pleasantly surprised by the amount of birds on this by the way. Plenty of wee chavs to get fired into. Takes a while fir them tae reply sometimes eh but just keep copying and pasting messaging to birds. Barry wee site over all and easy tae yuse on my ipad an that.

  • 2017-05-15 14:22:09, Jeff M.D. (Man, 50)



    Adult friend finder is very well known in the world of hookup dating so I wanted to add my two cents to this review. Yeah ive used it but cant say ive been laid yet. Met a girl one time and coulda happened but we ended up gettin wasted in a club and ive no idea what happened after that! Lol! Sh*t happens. Had some hot chats and sh*t like that tho. Oh and yeah youll get some skanky cam chicks trying to get you to sign up and splash more cash but its best to just delete the messages They easy to spot.

  • 2017-05-12 16:00:47, F U ! ! ! (Man, 50)

    Things were going good but ended up with nuthin


    Thought I was gonna get lucky last night, had been speaking with these two girls for a while and asked them both if they were free to hook up. Could not believe it when they both said they were so I picked the one with the double Ds instead of the one with the fine apple shaped booty. Met up in a bar had ONE drink (least she paid) and then she got a call and had to bail. Not happy!!! Sent apple bottom a message and no reply yet. Im like WTF! Weeks spent prepping two fine honeys and I go and pick the wrong biiiiaaatttch. F*ck you AFF. F*ck you good.

  • 2017-05-08 02:54:29, Daniel Sutton (Man, 49)

    Definitely one of the better hook up sites but dont expect much


    Name an adult dating site and ive tried it. Used AFF a few times over the years and it is one I trust. They go way back so you know your at least gonna get a chance to pull birds for your money, but dont go thinking that theyll be like picking apples from a tree. Even on the good sites it is hard work to get laid. Worth it of course, but hard f*cking work.

  • 2017-05-03 16:42:23, Tony (Man, 47)

    Anyone who says this works without real effort is a liar


    Hi all, there's just no way that you can get a girl into bed on this site without sending a lot of messages and spending a lot of time. I'd say its better than tinder but only just so you have to decide if you think its worth the money or not. Tinder is more fun but less results, this is results but effort and time. That's it basically.

  • 2017-04-26 06:53:18, Vincent Kawecki (Man, 43)

    Gentlemen, start youre engines!!!


    Signed up last night after reading this review and im pretty stoked about what im seeing. Good times ahead me thinks! Haha! I'm ready to go – some of the girls are super hot its hard to believe they are real and then you get talking to them and on! Ill try to leave some over for any guys reading this but be warned chaps I plan to go through these ladies like nothing theyve seen before!

  • 2017-03-16 10:59:18, Dennis (Man, 48)

    Four Stars


    Has to be seen to be believed, quite a lot of crazy stuff in here and I absolutly LOVE the webcam stuff, very naughty hahaha! Hoping to meet lots of people and im already of to a good start so will see where it leads. Been wanting to find a site like this for ages and hoping this will not disappoint!!

  • 2017-03-06 02:57:45, Dave (Man, 36)

    Better than it used to be in the UK


    Maybe im wrong but I think AFF was always bigger in the USA. I tried it a while ago and wasnt all that impressed despite hearing good things about it. Downloaded the app this week to try it again as it's been literally years, and things do seem to have picked up in the south of england where I live. Glad I decided to give it a retry but theres so much junk on the market that IMHO the best way to go is to stick with the popular brands that have a good track record. Thanks, Dave

  • 2017-03-02 13:00:29, Bruce (Man, 35)

    Rock n roll!


    I aint gave many of these hookup sites a shot but hot dam! The chicks on here are super freaky! Some of the messages and pics ive seen are off the hoooooook! Lol! Damn sure ill be tappin some ass this weekend ;-)
