Over the last 3 years, I’ve tested 17 popular hookup sites and apps. There’s been some good ones, some bad ones, and some downright awful ones.
In short, I’ve got a lot of experience browsing hookup sites and searching for casual sex online.
So in this post, I’m bringing it all together and rounding up the sites that actually got me results, along with some steamy details of each.
You’ve probably heard of Craigslist Personals before, it was the best hookup site from 2001 to 2018. However, in 2018 they shut the personals section down because of the FOSTA-SESTA law passed by congress.
At first, I panicked, I had used personals for about 5 years to find casual sex whenever I needed it. And when I didn’t, I still checked out personals regularly just because it was pretty darn fun to see the missed encounters, naked pics, and all the passion that came with it.
A takedown felt like the end of the world for the hookup scene.
But after a few months, everyone moved to posting in the ‘Activities’ section of craigslist for sex (top left corner on the CL homepage). And now in late 2019 it’s just as active as personals was before the shutdown.
The main downside of Craigslist Activities is that the posts are a bit more discreet and you can’t post nudes, so you need to use a bit of analysis and guesstimate who is down for free sex (almost everyone is though). Just don’t say anything about trading money for it and your time is guaranteed to be smooth.
Each post normally has the contact info for the person you have an interest. You would need to read their proposals to see if that person is someone you want to have a romantic encounter. Then, you would need to get to know them, trade photos, and ask questions. Craigslist is just an introduction.
My hope is that the new law will be overturned and Craigslist personals will be restored to its rightful place as the best adult hookup site ever. Until then, I put together a list of my favorite Craigslist personals alternatives that you can find by clicking HERE. Many of the sites on this list are also on that one, but with an emphasis on the classifieds.
The main reason AdultFriendFinder isn’t at the top of my list is that it isn’t a 100% free hookup site. They require guys to pay a monthly membership fee in an effort to make the girl to guy ratio more balanced.
Adult Friend Finder started back in 1996 and was one of the first hookup sites ever. When most veteran swingers are looking for some extra side-action, they will check their AFF messages and hope to see that notification icon.
The people on this site are serious about casual sex. To message new people, you need a gold membership, but to receive messages it’s completely free. This structure balances out the girl to guy ratio perfectly, and it’s easy to find responsive women.
The site has lots of other cool features, too, it feels like a community more than other sites. There’s a forum for asking sex questions and posting ads for local sex meetups. There’s two-way chat so you can really get to know someone before you meet them. There’s also profile pages, blogs, messaging, chatting, and voice chat. They just added sex courses too, that teach people about bondage, squirting, and hookup strategies.
At the end of the day, this is the best hookup site for connecting with someone regardless of where they are located on the globe. Finding a friend is easy.
Sometimes people get trapped in marriages and want a way out. Ashley Madison is a site that helps people, especially married women, find no strings attached hookups.
You need money to be on this website.
The women on this site are mostly in their mid-30s to early 40s, which is the horniest time in a woman’s life. She wants to feel young again and have fun before she hits that elderly age. Even then she might still try to catch her a young stud on the side. Top that with a sexless marriage and you can find some of the most intense and easy hookups.
When I’ve used this site I was able to get a date with about half the women I messaged, and about half of those conversations turned into sex. The women would also give me gifts from time to time, which I happily obliged. But I wouldn’t consider myself a sugar baby. Compared to other sites, that ratio is not even close.
The obvious downside of this site is that you are helping people cheat on their significant others. Not cool. But hey, life is short and to each their own. It’s up to you to decide if it is right or wrong, and if you’re willing to give it a try. Just make sure their husbands aren’t MMA fighters before you jump in the sack.
If you know about Tinder then you know about that Swipe left and Swipe right feature when you match with someone. I have matched with so many people in my area I thought an overload of pussy was coming my way, and it did for the most part.
Tinder is popular among a lot of young folks, so expect teen booty calls and snap sex shows.
There are many ‘R4R’, (Redditor for Redditor) Subreddit communities that are ok places for finding a hookup, swinger partners, cuckold, cuck, hot bull, or hot wife.
The problem I have with Reddit is that when you post a comment everyone can see it unless you message the person directly. Moreover, you don’t know what the other party look like so they could catfish you anytime. I had to put in more work to find someone on Reddit.
I have a personal fetish called jizz on jeans where I love to see women bending over in skintight jeans with cum on them. I don’t know where this deep psychological fetish came from, but anyway.
I was able to find my dream model and she understood what I wanted and didn’t judge me. At Fetlife, you will find someone who shares your fetish.
Grindr is a great website for gay men looking for sex and hookups across the globe. Not to mention it does positive things in sexual health for the LGBT community.
Grindr LLC is registered in West Hollywood, an infamous gay area, so one can draw the conclusion that it’s owned and operated by the same demographic using the website. However, ownership jumps from one company to another, often like a game of hot potato because there are entities that keep buying and then selling this very popular website for higher prices each time.
Signing up requires a verification code from your email. After the verification completes, you can add a name to your profile and an optional photo. Once accepted, a list of gay guys will show three in a row and the ones with small green dots in the lower lefthand corners of their introduction photos are currently online.
The Grindr app can be downloaded on Google or Android by people who are 17+. 10+ million people downloaded the Android app, but I’m unsure how many downloaded the Apple version because I can’t see the numbers because I don’t have an iOS operated device. But Grindr is #60 of all social networking apps on iTunes.
When I first started my online empire building some time ago I came across how popular BDSM is in our society. I’m talking about celebrities were open with their BDSM fetishes like gayman Ricky Martin, who like golden showers – “loco” – or Angelina Jolie who has a thing for vials of blood.
the first place I went to try out my BDSM fetish was Alt.com. The women I met were complete freaks into all types of things. They also didn’t bullshit around and got to the point, very serious about what they believed.
For a completely free site you can use okcupid.com. This site has different settings and filters you can use to search for people who are only looking for casual sex. You might occasionally bump into some people who are looking for relationships, but you can just skip them and sort through the next batch of people.
You have your teen dating site and most of the women I seen on there was a bit immature because of this. Like the girl I met who I will call Lofonda. She straight up lied to be about every damn thing. So, I left her ass at Five Guys and let them have a bite at her.
You will need to do some detective, investigative work on OkCupidbecause of the catfishing attempts. Unlike Ashley Madison, where you find many secure women.
Seeking.com aka SeekingArrangement is a great site if you are a woman who is interested in love and finding a wealthy guy.
This site hooks up wealthy men that are at least millionaires, with above-average women. It also works with wealthy women finding young studs, but in my experience testing out the site, that is much less common.
If you like the idea of having a guy take care of you and fly you out to Greece for your first date, then this might be worth trying.
After all, if a guy is successful enough to be rich, he has probably done something interesting to get there. The site boasts itself as a place for ‘Hypergamy’ which is the ‘act of women marrying into a higher class’.
You have plenty of women looking for plenty of dick on Plenty of Fish, so you will definitely find someone. My luck has been strong on this website. I have gotten the most sex from here than any other site because most of the women are average like me.
However, you also have a lot of low-quality women or catfishes who come from rough backgrounds. Some of them are just plain weird, so it will be difficult finding quality dating options. I’m talking about women who you can take to Kentuckian Fried Chicken for some biscuits and they’ll give you some buns. Women who look like they should be on the next Jerry Springer episode or grew up in Chernobyl.
Another problem is the number of young girls here. If you do meet someone that’s cute and into you, you might need to ask to see her driver’s license or state ID. If she looks young then she probably is. However, you will find grown teens (18,19) and 20 somethings there.
If you consider yourself too classy for Adult Friend Finder and prefer to hook up after throwing off the high heels, suits, or elegant dresses then passion.com might be for you.
It has a newsfeed style with profiles so you can add people you are interested in as ‘interests’, you can see if they like you back. This makes messaging them more smooth and easy than a site like AFF or KinkyHookup, where you don’t always know if someone is interested right away. The site is also geared towards passionate short-term relationships, which usually means above-average attractiveness people are on the site.
