In the vast world of NSA hook ups, being naughty is a basic requirement!
BeNaughty.com is generally regarded as one of the top online hookup sites available to singles looking for fun without commitment. It's been around for a long time and is part of the Together Networks portfolio, along with other major casual brand Flirt.com (see our Flirt.com review here). Colours aside, BeNaughty is a similar looking site to Flirt (more on that later) but one that is far more focused on the adult side of things, aiming to provide no strings sex for hookup hunters everywhere.
It's quick and easy to join BN, even without mandatory email verification (unlike other dating sites, you get straight into the members area), but there is a message at the top of the page that reminds you that in order to receive all messages and keep up with other members' activity, you must eventually confirm your email.
The site is sleek and simple to navigate, as you'd expect from an XXX industry behemoth like BeNaughty. It's not a surprise that the site is very similar to successful sister site Flirt.com, but there are a few differences that lead us to feel that of the two, BeNaughty is the less impressive for site design. For example, there is a very small and thin main navigation bar at the top of the members area. In fact, it's tiny, and we can't really figure out the reason for this. To make things worse from a design perspective, the icons for accessing messages, checking notifications, accessing the instant chat, etc are all bunched up in the corner, with lots of wasted space in the main nav that could be far better used.
Functionality again is very like Flirt, and we're pleased to see the Chatrooms remain an option here. Considering the amount of cyber sex and dirty conversations that went on in such chatrooms back in the day (before MySpace and then Facebook came along and changed the way single people used the internet!), it makes sense that this environment has been recreated here and definitely adds a nice social side to the BN site. You can read what's going on in the chatrooms without upgrading but to join in the fun you need to take out a subscription.
As you would expect, BeNaughty's brand of online sex searching follows the same principles as other major NSA hookup sites like Adult Friend Finder (see our Adult Friend Finder Review) and ihookup.com (iHookup.com Review) with a 'look but don't touch' approach to free membership. You can read messages and look at the profiles of people that show up in your advanced searches, but any outgoing communication, aside from a wink or a like, will require a membership upgrade.
For those that prefer to set up naughty encounters using their mobile or tablet device, you'll be pleased to learn that the BeNaughty mobile experience is excellent. The mobile site works very nicely indeed, but for app lovers out there, you can also download the free BN mobile dating app for android or iphone.
Overall, this is a professional, popular and simple to use website for finding casual sex in your local area or beyond. We'd be lying if we said we weren't a little bit disappointed by the lack of anything new or innovative to catch our attention, it's essentially the same as Flirt in terms of functionality, and perhaps the brand could be made to stand out more. The major difference between these two sites of course is that BN is aimed primarily at the more adult side of the dating scene. Sure it's about fun and flirting, but make no mistake - the members on BeNaughty have joined up for local and distant sex meetings, pure and simple.
In conclusion, if you want some casual flirty fun without necessarily having to be bombarded with sex offers, then you might be better off with Flirt. But if you're reading this review because you want to find hardcore adult hookups with the opposite (or same) sex, then BeNaughty is the site for you. It's got a massive number of members and feels more vibrant than most casual sites, and is one of the best performers we've reviewed.
Remember guys and gals, even a site as popular as BeNaughty might not get you laid as often as you'd like. We recommend signing up to multiple sites and giving them a proper try (and a little patience) before reaching your decision, taking into account search results in your area, cost and usability. Even after you've found some sites you really like, we'd still suggest running 2 or 3 memberships simultaneously if you really want to hit the hookup highs.
