Adult Friend Finder is one of those sites that boasts a host of naysayers along with a good number of supporters too. However, love it or hate it, it remains one of the most popular dating sites on the market. Even if some of our surfers complain about fake profiles, there are definitely lots of genuine visitors to this site's pages. As some of our readers have commented, if you know what you're doing then you can meet real people here.

It's free to join AdultFriendFinder, so I'd probably do exactly that and then check out the activity in my local area. However, there's a bit of a catch, because only the U.S. (by zip code) and the U.K. (by a list of select cities) offer truly localized search results before you pay. For other countries, you'd need to upgrade to search within a specific distance of your home location or the typed in name of a city of your choice.

What's more, you cannot access most profiles before upgrading. Some paid members may spend a bit extra to make their profiles accessible to everyone and some people gain free viewing privileges bases on the popularity of their profiles. However, these are exceptions to the general rule. It's too bad, because there were some rather drool-worthy thumbnails of some profile pics.

Now you might be wondering why a site with such limited free access to dating profiles could be so popular. I would say that personally the free member cams here are a major attraction. It's really as if you're getting free porn, because some amateur exhibitionists both male and female) really show you everything that they've got. I even saw some couples where the guy and girl really get explicit with one another.

You'll also find blogs, an online magazine, chat rooms and groups you can join that all give you a sense of community. I also think that reading some of the user-submitted content that fills these various areas will make it clear that some people are very real indeed. You can also set of your own personal list of friends, so there's that handy social networking aspect of the site when want to keep in touch with folks.

There are cheaper sites out there, but some surfers say they met someone even before upgrading. It is free to reply to messages from paid members, so I can see theoretically how hookups could happen before springing for a premium membership. In the end, despite the fact that Adult Friend Finder has its fair share of detractors, it offers so much free that you should really see for yourself if you like it.

    Pro: Some real ladies on there, treat them right.

    CON/s: Way too many fake/contractor females "in your area" Quit paying and it all dropped off; half a year later they charge me top membership fee on my CC after I'd been away from site for ages. Contacting support was successful but whoa how crooked are they. I lodged dispute with bank at the same time (I have no shame :) ) ....

    I am constant user of dating sites which orientate on traveling and dating. I've tried misstravel and travelgirl also friendsfinder and lots of other but damn they do have fake profiles. Its just waste of money and time. Though helpful for me was travbuddy, but girls are not so nice. Then I found globo and I enjoyed it. I see they are still new so all those escorts and scammers didn’t reach them or they just fight with them. I found bunch of great girls who I am in touch. But frankly speaking I am super active trying my chances with all girls ahaha.

    I have been in and out of this site for a few years with various levels of membership. The key for a man is to be direct, but detailed in your approach to women on this site. I find that the best odd you have of hooking up is with a married woman or couple with a husband who like to watch his wife with other men. If you get their attention, you're highly likely to have some good sex! Just my honest review of the site so far.

    Total scam from my years of watching it. Fake girls always from your area, ready and willing. LOts of lonely dudes. Hear lots of bad stuff about their billing practices.

    Even making the free standard profile unusable now.

    I ll say, AFF has the best features and craziest people. Even if you don t have a date you can watch some funny live cams, and sometimes there are contests. It is a good community with groups also, it has alot to offer. Getting a real date, is not easy though. It is very chatty, I would like to find something in person, that is where I think clubs, or interest groups are a good thing.

    They automatically sign you up (without consent) for their other site. You find this out a month later when you get your credit card bill. They wouldn't respond regarding this issue. They also continued to bill after cancellation. Had to cut the card up.

    This site is nothing but a scam.

    It is expensive, and I have yet to pay. Always been a free member, but I have met two wonderful gals on this site, one of which I continue to see on a regular FWB basis.

    No discreet billing. Your credit card shows FRIENDFINDER exposing yourself to credit card companies, your employer, and anyone else with a direct paper trail. Very poor security.

    Pro: There are a HUGE (and ever growing) number of GENUINE people on the site. The fakes are there but they are easy to avoid if you know what you are doing.

    Cons: Takes a while to fully complete your profile 100% and until you do, others will be less inclined to give you a shot
