Sometimes, you are looking for that special someone to bring home to mom. Someone you can see yourself in a long term relationship with: marriage, kids, a mortgage, eternity. Other times you are thinking: what can I do that is the exact opposite?

It is true, there is a period in our lives (sometimes several periods) where all we want to do is “sow your wild oats” (ask your grandpa). This is generally a good thing as it helps us get very clear about intimacy, what turns us on, what turns us off, and this carries over to the eventual decisions on relationships more eternal.

Behold! The best hookup apps as determined by the dating and relationships experts at Datezie. Remember: it’s good for you.  

AdultFriendFinder

 Crowd:Massive and active user base (25 million visits monthly, mostly from the US), comprised of singles, couples, couples in open relationships and just about everyone else 
InteractivityLot’s of ways to interact including webcams, blogs and profiles
Price:Free Membership, Enhanced: 1-3 Month $20/Mth, 12 Months: $15/month
 

Adultfriendfinder is one of the largest and best known hookup and adult entertainment services in the world, and has features that will appeal to casual and active users alike. 

The site has some of the familiar features of a dating site but veers quickly off into a world that is decidedly more adult, with numerous ways to interact with the community, ranging from chat rooms to blogs, live streaming and more. There is also a pretty comprehensive sex advice and education section for those who get off on learning (sorry).

Pros:

  • Huge member base with lots of diversity
  • Gamification and a  points system makes the site fun as well as titillating
  • Lots of ways to search and engage with the community
Cons:

  • There are costs beyond paid memberships for things like model videos, purchased points and  sex academy courses
  • No app, but a robust mobile website

Create personal hotlists of your favorite members and browse the site casually or dive right in to some of the more interactive features, many of which are decidedly gamified with a points system. You can join groups that cater to your specific interests, engage in photo contests, complete surveys that help you explore your interests, post suggestive videos and even engage with live web-cams. Oh yes, you can even find someone to hookup with, should that be your main modus operandi, via running pre-set searches based on kink or location or via browsing sections of the site that showcase top rated user profiles and photos.

Unpaid members will have a difficult time initiating contact with other members and maximizing their enjoyment of the site, so if you are going to join a paid membership is highly recommended

Fun Feature

Like sister site XMatch, AFF has the “Connexion” feature that makes it possible  for users to connect with models via a sort for enhanced video sexting.

BeNaughty

 Crowd: Lively community with a diverse user base interested in just about everything you can imagine  
Interactivity: Group and 1 on 1 chats, “hot or not” galleries and more. Engage with other users safely with a three-tiered system which gives you control over who engages with you
Price: 7 Day Free Trial $0, 1 Month $17.85 3 Months $9.99 /Month, 6 Month $7.85/Month
 

BeNaughty feels like a normal dating site with strong orientation towards casual sex and hooking up. Like Adult Friend Finder, it caters to a varied audience of singles and couples looking for a whole host of arrangements. Search users in a variety of ways, including physical attributes and through “hot or not” style galleries.

Pros:

  • Mobile friendly with a solid mobile site and app that gets some decent ratings in the app store (4.5/5, albeit on a small number of votes)
Cons:

  • Ad heavy and hard to know when you are clicking an ad or a site feature

BeNaughty has a fairly robust activity dashboard that displays how you’ve engaged with users and how other users have engaged with you (profile views, winks, friend requests, etc.) it also shows nearby matches, and with its emphasis on mobile access, you can check in and plan your next encounter from anywhere.

BeNaughty has a growing user base in over 70 countries, with the largest membership base being in the U.S. Though you certainly get more out of the paid version, it should be noted that women can contact men for free.

Fun Feature

Flirtcast” tool allows you to mass message members twice daily. Use this tool wisely, not creepily.

Flirt.com

 Crowd: A fun, flirty app targeting singles, with a healthy women to men ratio
InteractivityClean simple layout with a good mobile app. Feels a little like Tinder
Price: Free for basic, premium: 1 Month $34.99, 3 Months $59.96, 6 Months $95.94

 

Flirt is a simple and fun hookup app (and site) with Tinder like features, plenty of cool chat options and free access for women, making the odds a little better for the hookup oriented single guys out there (ie. all).

Pros:

  • Free for women to use all features (free basic account for men)
  • Different themed chat options (Kinks and Fetishes, Naughty but Nice, etc)
Cons:

  • Member security measures lacking, allowing for the possibility of fake profiles and catfishing.

Paid features include access to a plethora of chat rooms catering to different interests,  “Flirtcasts” which allow users to message a large group of members (make your message count!) and covert viewing of profiles, so that your curiosity doesn’t drum up unwanted interest from the bearded lady or that guy that indicated “collecting Barbie heads” as a hobby.

Security measures aren’t the strongest suit of Flirt, but you can reach out to the Flirt team and get trusted status for your account, basically to prove to others that you are the real deal.

Fun Feature

“Naughty Mode” allows members to view each others naughty pictures.

Fling.com

 Crowd:Large user base of active and engaged people looking for actual and online hookups and to explore fantasies. International with over 50% from the U.S. 
InteractivityA dynamic homepage with a scrolling image gallery like a stock market ticker, with options to add users directly. Engage using video chat, live web cams, or by browsing member photos. 
Price: Free basic account with Silver ($24.95 for 1 month, $99.95 for 12 months) and Gold ($34.95 for 1 month, $119.95 for 18 months) options

No one would claim that Fling.com is a quiet corner of the internet. When you engage with this site you are right in the thick of things, for better or for worse. Lots of ways to immediately engage with other users along with notifications that help you choose your path through the site. Images scroll across the screen ticker-style and are organized into a variety of topics/site areas,  including Members on Video Chat, Featured Members, Popular Member Photos, Popular Member Videos, Premium Live Cams, Who’s Viewed Me and My Friends.

Pros:

  • An active, often updated site
  • Advanced search allows users to hone in on the right match by sexual preferences, age and location, amongst other filters
Cons:

  • Not much of a matching system, mostly self-serve
  • Can be a bit visually overwhelming from a UX perspective

Users can customize their own experience by turning off sexually explicit content by entering a safe mode, or go in to discreet mode to only engage with other users and friends. You can even go so far as to temporarily deactivating your profile if you need a time out.

Fun Feature: In the spirit of Joe Namath calling a Jets super bowl win or JFK predicting a moon landing by the end of the 60’s, Fling.com has  bold three month “get laid” guarantee.

XMatch

 Crowd: A kinky, engaged crowd with lots of diverse interests  
Interactivity: Users post pictures and videos actively, live webcams that other users rate or comment on
Price: Free for a basic account, 1 Month $20.00, 3 Months $20.00/ month,  12 Months $15/ month

Built more like an adult site than a dating site, a few seconds on XMatch lets you understand what you are not in Kansas anymore. Risque images adorn the homepage and this sexually forward dating site/social network site encourages active video and image contributions from its user base.

Pros:

  • Unlike many other Hookup Apps, Xmatch suggests matches based on what you are looking for
  • Detailed member profiles make it easy to find a good match
  • Entertaining and titillating communication options with other members
Cons:

  • A paid membership is required to view profiles and send messages

Users have various search options to find matches on the site including perusing Kink Search, Who’s Online, Members Near Me, New Matches, VIP Members and Advanced Search.

Fun Feature

“Connexion” is a feature that allows users to connect digitally with models via video sexting. You can even go so far as to integrate the service with paired sex toys  so you can send each other sensations. Technology!
