HOT HOOKUP WEBSITES
Recently, I found myself single at the end of a five year marriage. As I started researching online dating websites with a few girlfriends, we discovered the top hot hookup sites.
Whether you’re just dipping your toes back into the singles pool, freshly divorced, or you’re someone who has been wading in the singles deep end for years, you’ll likely be intrigued by this list.
After a fair share of due diligence, and a rather large leap of faith, I threw caution to the wind and put down $155 towards a membership on one of the list’s featured sites. I got exactly what I bargained for, and failed in my quest to find the golden pot at the end of the proverbial rainbow. However, I was pleasantly surprised by our number one site…it is where I met Zensual Boy. Turns out, there is a pretty wide range of options out there, most of which look very different from one another (compare FriendFinder-X, Passion.com and Match.com, for example). I learned that, as with most things in life, there are some good, some bad, and certainly some ugly. What follows are the results of that review, complete with rankings that should help guide you on your own journey toward cyber sexual bliss.
Getting Started on XMatch.com
Looking for a stimulating service that will expand your comfort zone without compromising reliability? Welcome to XMatch.com. It is part of the Friend Finder network, which means it works similarly to other established sites like AdultFriendFinder.com and FriendFinder-x.com. Sign-up takes about 20 minutes if taken seriously (i.e. if all open-ended questions are fully answered). Once in, you can browse the top menu bar to find matches, interact with the XMatch community (via live cams or chatrooms), see what’s trending, edit your profile, and more. You’ll also be prompted to complete XMatch’s custom, 100-point Purity Test, which assesses a user’s level of sexual purity vs. naughtiness. Questions are all ‘yes’ or ‘no’, and include topics such as threesomes, sex in public, masturbation, and recreational consumption habits. Results can either be kept private or shared with other members to determine compatibility.
Getting Started On iHookUp
Signing up to iHookUp.com only takes a minute, but creating a detailed profile requires answering a few additional questions. 22 closed and 10 open-ended to be precise. While some may prefer shorter questionnaires, iHookUp’s process means that members on this site tend to care more about who exactly they are connecting with. Which is probably a good thing.
Unlike HornyMatches.com, iHookUp’s layout is smooth, modern and very enjoyable to browse. The uncluttered page design encourages members to begin interacting with others from the start, the goal being to meet “friends with benefits.” For added fun, the site provides icebreakers that can be exchanged between matches or flirtations.
Other great features include two personalized reports that are created based on your sign-up answers. The Passion Report gives you insight into your own dating, romance and sex tendencies, while the Three-Month Forecast provides info based on what the site calculates to be your “fated connections, unexpected surprises, sexual progress and erotic energy.”
Getting Started On Passion.com
One of the prime destinations for daters of a more sensual persuasion, Passion.com doesn’t take longer than 60 seconds to sign-up to. Catering to singles, couples, and groups of any sexual orientation, the site can be used to make both online and in-person connections.
The layout is easy to navigate and uncluttered, putting all the emphasis on browsing erotic photos and mingling with online personals. Furthermore, interactive features like adult chatrooms, direct and instant messaging, as well as a Facebook-like make it a more-than-meets-the-eye hookup site.
Unlike some other adult sites, Passion.com allows users to create very extensive profiles. You can browse friend networks, read up on detailed Q&A’s, and even see what “sexual academy” courses a few potential sexual partners may have completed.
Getting Started On AFF
Adult Friend Finder boasts an easy, 5-step sign-up process. Once you’ve specified your sexual identity and what interests you’d like to pursue, you’ll need to fill a mandatory introductory blurb, 18 characters minimum.
Once in, you’ll immediately notice the sexy, if not provocative, profiles and banner ads that take up most of the homepage. From there, you can browse the top navigation bar for everything from What’s New (for finding the most recently added profiles) to Live Action chatrooms (speaks for itself).
Members can also customize their ‘Cupid Preferences’ in order to limit or narrow down what profiles they wish see. This can come in extremely handy if you’re looking for a specific kind of match based on physical appearance, fetish, location, etc.
Getting Started On GetItOn
Three minutes and 11 questions is all it takes to get an account set up on GetItOn.com. The sexual compatibility survey covers all the bases, from your own physical appearance to those of your ideal match, and what kind of relationship you’re interested in pursuing.
Speaking of compatibility, member profiles are always accompanied by a percentage, which indicates how well any two given members should get along. Beyond that, search allows members to search for matches based on location, who’s online, most recently added profiles, etc.
As per usual, the top navigation page is the best place to check out your browsing options, which include a live cam section and Hotlist. Once a match has been made, members have a couple of different ways to communicate, including GetItOn’s emailing system and ‘Flirt,’ which is a casual way of showing interest in someone’s profile.
Getting Started On Friend Finder
Friend Finder positions itself as a fun place to be if you’re in the mood for fun, but not necessarily a full-fledged relationship. If you’re curious, you don’t actually have to sign-up to start browsing profile thumbnails. You will have to create an account if you want to see anything up-close or if you want to communicate with anyone.
Getting started takes a little over five minutes. The Friend Finder questionnaire doesn’t hassle you with too-many open-ended questions, but you can fill out more detailed sections about yourself once you’re in.
The site provides plenty of ways to interact within the Friend Finder community. Chat rooms let you spark conversations with groups of people, while IM helps you get to know people more intimately. Winks, on the other hand, are the most subtle way of getting someone’s attention.
Getting Started On Friend Finder-X
By far one of the most visited adult sites out there, Friend Finder-X is harnessing quite the reputation for its X-rated personals service. And with its extensive features – from free entertainment to intuitive messaging functions – we get why it’s such a popular choice.
Signing up is easy, and can be done in less than a minute. After selecting your sexual identity (all are welcome) and preferences, you’re asked to fill in a very basic questionnaire (birthday, location, username, etc.). For those of you who are a little kinkier, Friend Finder-X also allows you to sign-up as a couple or group.
Once you’re in, Friend Finder-X is borderline overwhelming with its fully loaded pages and broad browsing options. Members can also participate in live action forums, see what’s trending and view adult content, like movies.
Getting Started On POF
Creating a POF account takes around half an hour depending on how much attention you pay to filling out the open-ended questions. On more than one occasion, the site will remind you not to include any inappropriate language – a clear sign that POF seeks to cater to daters of all kinds, not just hookups.
Despite having a bit more of a basic feel, POF manages to offer many features that aren’t dissimilar to those offered by competing sites like FriendFinder-X.com and Passion.com. For example, Meet Me is a Tinder-like function that allows you to scroll through photos one-by-one, each time choosing to say ‘yes’, ‘no’ or ‘maybe’. POF also offers a Relationship Needs Assessment, which is a great way to learn about your own strengths and weaknesses within a couple.
And last but not least….For Zee she met her partner on Match.com!
Getting Started On Match.com
Setting up an account on Match.com is probably the most annoying aspect of the site since it takes up to 20-40 minutes, but you probably won’t regret doing it once you’re in.
With an emphasis on dating compatibility, Match highlights profiles of interest in your ‘Daily Matches’ section, and encourages in-person meetings through features like ‘Date Spark’ and ‘Stir.’ Profiles are also fairly detailed and can display up to 26 photos, which is way more than most other sites.
After personally joining many hookup sites, and with time taken to review and determine the best for a woman looking to meet her sexual playmate or future partner, I feel the above listed HOT Sites are worth your review.
