AdultFriendFinder: Is the internet’s premiere hook-up site worth the money?


(65/100 points)

AdultFriendFinder is an online community of individuals who chat online, perform in and watch cam shows, and occasionally meet up for sexual activity. If you are looking for a hook-up, or to make some likeminded new friends, this may be the platform for you.
One of the Internet’s Oldest Hookup Spots

Online dating has gained popularity over the last decade in New Zealand and, as a result, an ever-increasing number of platforms are being created to help people find love, or a hook up.

Today we dive deep into one such platform that we have tested for you, AdultFriendFinder, to learn more about it and determine if it is worth your time and attention.

What is AdultFriendFinder all about? Can you really hook up on this site?

AdultFriendFinder (AFF) is presented as an online dating site that offers single adults the chance to meet and is advertised as “the World’s Largest Sex & Swinger Community.” In reality, the main service they offer is the hosting of cam shows by nude models. However, you can reach out to other members via their messaging system, but that will require a membership.

Based on our best judgement, we believe that AFF is a legitimate website that is a primarily sex-driven platform where you are more than likely to find a likeminded individual to hook up with if you try.

The entertainment value on the site is quite high, especially if you are a fan of cam models – AFF has an abundance of different models, as well as couples, that perform at all hours of the day for their viewers.

Our recommendation: C-date
A very popular sex dating site / app with NZ women

C-date is without doubt one of the most popular sex dating apps in New Zealand! The website and associated app were designed for men and women who are looking for no-strings sexual experiences and affairs.

How Quickly Can I Find a Hook-Up on AdultFriendFinder in New Zealand?

Upon reaching the site, you will be presented with a “Sign-Up” window prompting you to create an account. It is a simple and standard two-page form you fill out to register.

After completing this process and registering your account through your email, you will be presented with a panel that states “GET FULL ACCESS WITH A GOLD MEMBERSHIP!” After spending just a few more minutes on the site you will realize most of the services it provides require a membership.

With that being said, we received three messages from other members (which we were unable to read, due to our lack of membership in the beginning) within thirty minutes of creating the account, so the chance to come into contact with other AFF members is remarkably high – especially if you pay for a membership.

Time to interact with other AFF members: Less Than 30 Minutes.

AdultFriendFinder: Profiles and Best Features

One of the first things you will notice about AdultFriendFinder is how in-depth and expansive they allow you to make your profile.

When looking at the profiles of other users, you gain a lot of insight into the things various people are looking for using the site. The first thing you will see on another user’s profile is the Introduction section. Here, users can give a detailed explanation of why they are using AFF, and what they are looking for.

An interesting feature here is the “My Ideal Person” section. This is a place for users who know exactly what they want to make their desires clear. One user we encountered wrote for instance that their Ideal Person was an “open minded, clean, safe, sane and consensual playmate.”
We suggest looking at this section before messaging someone of interest to see if you fit any of their ideal characteristics. If you do, use that to get their attention and start a conversation.

Secondly, you will see an Information section. Here, users can place information such as their sexual orientation, marital status, what they are looking for, languages spoken, and much more. For couples, the Information section is broken in half to display information for Him and Her. Users that purchase a membership have the ability to search for other users based on any of these characteristics.

Next, you will see a photos and videos section where you can check out other user’s personal media. Finally, you will see a Friends Network section. This section shows all of the user’s active friends. We judge AdultFriendFinder’s profile set up to be among its best features. This is because users can provide a great deal of information, which helps match them with likeminded individuals.

Our expert says
I recommend to have a look at C-date. In all tests the results were very positive and also the user feedback was outstanding.

Is AdultFriendFinder free?

AdultFriendFinder is a website that offers several features for free. For example, you can browse the selection of individuals near you for free. However, if you would like to reach out to anyone, or access any photos or videos posted by users, you will have to sign up for a membership.

These memberships cost at most $41.95 NZD/month for a single month, $27.94 NZD/month for a 3-Month membership and at least $20.94 NZD/month for a 12-Month membership.

As a premium member, you gain full access to all content on the website, as well as the ability to contact an unlimited number of other users. This is definitely a site where you need to pay for a membership to get the most out of the service.

What can you get without paying on AFF?

Very little, unfortunately.

Free User vs Member Features

As a free user you will have the ability to:

  • like photos and videos
  • conduct basic searches
  • upload your own photos and videos
  • chat using instant messaging or the AFF chatroom
  • join blogs and groups.

Those that pay for a membership gain the following features, and more:

Pro Tips for Hooking-Up on AFF

If you are trying to get the most out of AdultFriendFinder, our number one piece of advice is to pay for a premium membership.

This will allow you to communicate with anyone you find interesting and gives you the chance to see a wide variety of different cam models and couples performing.

Our next piece of advice would be to take time to flesh out your profile.

Your profile page is what other people see when they search for you or stumble upon you, so you want it to be the best representation of you that it can be.

Take the time to think carefully about your biography and the photos you use, as this is what you will be judged upon. When choosing a photo of yourself, we would suggest a recent picture that shows your entire face and body. This is important because it gives the people you may want to communicate with an idea of what you genuinely look like.

Final Warnings

If you are a fan of communicating with cam models, beware of the distinction between an offer an individual user makes through chat, and something a cam model might say during a stream. Users engaging in private conversation are more likely to be genuine when they say they would like to meet in person for a hook up, while performers may very well just be performing for you.

Our final piece of advice is to remember to be patient when communicating with other users online. The women on sites like AFF often receive an overwhelming stream of messages, so if someone takes longer than you would like to respond, they may just be sorting through their inbox.
