Wanna get naughty tonight but don’t fancy getting involved in small talk? Fed up with complicated dating sites that ask for lots of information? Tired of engaging in endless conversations with people before actually getting down to things?
BeNaughty might be the online dating site for you.
Like you, I was looking for a simple, easy-to-use site that got straight to the point. I wanted a fun, safe sexual experience, and I needed an online dating site that enabled me rather than made my life harder.
It is simple and sexy, and it’s aimed at anyone, from couples to individuals who are looking to add a bit of spice to their sex life. If you’re looking for something shorter term, you are part of its target audience.
In my BeNaughty review, I’ll be covering:
- User experience
- Privacy and security
I’ll also talk about how effective it actually is for people who are looking for a hookup ASAP, and I’ll be drawing on my own personal experiences with the site.
Sound good? Let’s make a start!
Like almost all dating sites these days, you can use a limited amount of BeNaughty features for free. To get the most out of it, you need to subscribe.
For free, BeNaughty lets you wink at other members and add them to your Favourites list. You can also see who’s new and who’s online. However, only female members are allowed to send messages for free (of course, this will rankle for guys, and Ashley Madison works in a similar way).
Men need to pay in order to send messages, and they also need to pay in order to see photo albums, see the location of anyone they message, share videos and photos in the chat and unlock ‘looking for’ dating information.
Unlike most other sites I’ve come across, BN actually offers a 3-day trial. This isn’t a completely free trial but you only need to pay $0.99 per day to get access to all the website’s features for three days.
They also offer discounts every now and then, including a limited 30% discount on all packages.
Let’s take a look at the different payment (including 3-day trial) plans on offer:
Compared to competitors, it is reasonably priced. When I subscribed, I paid for 3 months' worth and I thought it was a pretty good deal for what I was getting. That said, it doesn’t have as many features as rivals, including Adult Friend Finder and Ashley Madison.
Audience Quality – Are The Profiles Real?
One of the biggest problems hookup sites have is fake profiles. I’ve joined a few hookup sites over the last few months and I can with certainty that a number of the profiles were fake.
It has in place a pretty strict verification process and you won’t show up in search results unless you upload a genuine photo of yourself. Each photo you upload is checked by their team that makes sure that your pics are real.
However, this doesn’t mean that there won’t be any fake profiles on the site. There will be and it’s not always so easy to spot them. For one thing, you don’t have to fill out any information before your profile is live. All you need to do is upload a photo. While this makes for an easy and quick registration process, it does mean that a lot of profiles on the website are not detailed.
Moreover, when you first sign up to the site, you’re inundated with lots of messages from men or women who are looking to chat with you. This happened to me. Within minutes of signing up, I’d already had lots of messages and lots of women viewing and ‘liking’ me:
It’s easy to believe that anyone who messages you instantly is fake because – in my case at least – I hadn’t even uploaded any photos at this point or filled in my profile. And when you go to view a message, you’re taken to a page that says you need to upgrade your account in order to do that if you’re a man:
Worse than that, some messages are on a timer. If you don’t upgrade within an hour, the message will be automatically deleted and any chance you had of chatting to that person is gone:
I’m also very suspicious of a hookup site that tells me there are lots of users online right now who are ‘less than 5 miles’ away from me:
At the same time, I don’t necessarily believe they are purposely flooding the dating site with such profiles. They have a verification process in place to keep questionable profiles out, and they also let you flag members you believe are fake. They will also send you messages to help you avoid spam profiles.
There are of course lots of real profiles on BeNaughty, too. The easiest way to find a real profile is to check their photos (you have to pay in order to see more than their profile pics) and take a look through their photo gallery. If a user has more than one photo, and if their bio is filled out, it’s a clearer sign that this is a real person.
You should also look out for verified profiles. They are strict about how they verify and who they don’t. If a user is a verified profile, you can be 100% sure they’re genuine because it means the user called and spoke to them directly. This is something that certainly puts my mind at ease.
And if you’re unsure whether a person is real or not, you can request them to add more photos of themselves.
Interface, Usability, and Features
In this section, I’ll be taking a look at how user-friendly the site is. I’ll walk you through the sign-up process, take a look at the design, and I’ll also assess the features the site has to offer.
Sign Up Process
BeNaughty’s tagline is ‘cut to the chase dating’ – and they’re right about that. I’ve never come across a quicker sign-up process than other sites. To register an account, you don’t even need to create a username, let alone answer numerous questions. Instead, you just need to fill out this super basic form:
Then, you will get an email with a verification code which you need to copy and paste into another form.
Once you’ve done that, you just need to upload a photo of yourself in order to appear in the search results. And that’s it!
It automatically creates a username for you but you can change it whenever you want.
Most users will appreciate how easy the signup process is. I’ve used other hook-up and dating sites that ask for multiple fields to be filled in before I can register an account, which made this one refreshing. It’s simple, fast and easy.
Once you’re all signed up, you’ll find that they are one of the most user-friendly hookup sites around. As you can see from the image below, there are very few tabs on the homepage:
To search, all you need to do is either click the ‘Search’ tab in the top left or flick through the three tabs under the fold – All Members, Online Now or New Members. Alternatively, you can amend your search in the middle bar.
Either way, it lets you get straight to the point: It’s here to help you find a hookup ASAP, which means there are zero distractions. Once you’re registered, it’s literally time to get searching for a new sexual experience.
Sending and receiving messages is easy, too. All you need to do is click on a profile you like the look of, and click “Chat.”
A lot of dating sites take a while to get used to, but they are so simple that you’ll get the hang of it in a few seconds. In the top right corner, you will also see how many unread messages you have, as well as how many overall updates you’ve got. Everything is literally just one click away.
Unlike a lot of other sites, They don't actually offer too many features to the paying member. Paying members get to send messages along with a few other special features. These include:
- Promote My Account
The Promote My Account feature works a bit differently to a similarly named feature on other dating sites. Ordinarily, a promoted account features higher up the search results and is shown to more people. On BeNaughty, however, it means that you get to send ‘promotional messages’ to potential matches.
They will also send winks to potential matches, too.
Does it work? It’s hit and miss in my experience but it does get your more responses (even if they’re not always from people you’d have messaged yourself).
- Like Gallery
This feature – which is essentially a ‘cute or not’ feature – is available to free members and it essentially works like Tinder. You’re shown various users and you get to decide whether you want to swipe right or left for them. If you swipe right, they’ll be alerted. If they like you back, you could get chatting.
It’s a decent feature but the problem is that you don’t know when the person was last online, or how active they are on the dating site.
Like Gallery also works on the app.
As you can see, then, BeNaughty doesn’t have things like webcam shows, videos or even blogs, all of which are standard features on various other mainstream hookup sites. Members who don’t want to get distracted in their pursuit of sex will, of course, prefer it this way. There’s literally nothing fancy about this dating site.
- Full Safe Mode
This feature is useful because it means only members that are verified will be able to send messages to you.
This means no more messages from bot profiles.
It also means you won’t log out and in again to find your inbox is bursting with 256 unread messages.
- Basic Safe Mode
The basic safe mode keeps you safe from scammers and those who are suspected of suspicious behavior by blocking flagged members.
Their design is similar to AdultFriendFinder’s. But with fewer features, it looks a lot cleaner.
On the homepage, you’re met by pictures of singles or couples who are in your local area. You’ve also got your search tabs right in front of you, as well as a button for your inbox.
And that’s pretty much it!
The design is set up to make life as easy as possible for you as you look for a hookup. This is a no-frills dating site that’s easy to navigate and use.
The best thing is that, despite its basic ethos, it doesn’t look cheap. The brand's colors – mustard, red and white – go well together and the website is inviting, easy to use, and uncluttered. It’s impossible to get lost while using it.
Privacy and Security
Before you sign up to a hookup site, it’s really important that you know what’s going to happen to your data. Millions of people got burned a few years back when Ashley Madison suffered a data breach, and the last thing anyone wants is for their data on an adult site to get leaked.
BeNaughty is one of the safest hook-up sites out there. Secured by GeoTrust, it also has a tough anti-fraud system in place. Even better, they are constantly monitoring user activity so that they can filter out scammers or anyone who is otherwise trying to hack the website and steal your information.
On the privacy and security front, I have no worries at all.
Okay, now for the million-dollar question: Is it possible to land a hookup pretty quickly on BeNaughty? You bet. This is exactly what it is designed for.
The stats are good: It receives over 15,000,000 monthly visits. New members are joining all the time, which means there are plenty of people to message, chat to – and meet.
Moreover, many of the people on here are pretty damn direct. They’re certainly not looking for a pen pal – they want something fast and something hot, and they’re going to let you know.
To improve your chances of a hookup, it’s best to head over to the ‘Online Now’ tab on the homepage to see who’s currently active in your local vicinity.
Then, you can start winking at members you like the look of, or you could just initiate a chat with them straight away.
You could also double down by promoting yourself so that BeNaughty sends your promoted messages to more potential matches.
Another smart idea is to use the Like Gallery to rate profiles (cute or not). That way, you’ll get more matches and more people browsing your profile.
You should also get BeNaughty to verify your profile, as it means other users will see you as a real person and will be more inclined to chat with you. To verify your profile, you have to call them directly on the phone.
Personally? I subscribed for 3 months initially, I filled my profile in and added a few photos, and I also made sure to verify my profile. It wasn’t long before I was receiving very direct messages from female members. Not all were genuine and not followed up, but many did.
And remember, real women can message for free. So if you’re a guy? Expect lots of messages!
I got properly chatting with two members. One had a verified profile and the other didn’t. However, I asked the latter profile if I could see more of her pictures and she complied. I also started talking to her away from the site and we had some flirty webcam fun before agreeing to meet up. Despite being unverified, I was satisfied that she was legit.
I eventually met up with both real women and we hooked up. It was a lot of fun! Overall, I’d say that I definitely got my money’s worth out of BeNaughty, and while 2 hookups in the space of 3 months might not seem like a lot to some of you, it was enough for me.
That said, BeNaughty is like many dating/hookup sites in that your success depends on how much effort you’re willing to put in. There’s no doubt that you will need to spend time flicking through profiles and firing off messages.
However, there’s a feature called Flirtcast which lets you send a few messages to different people at the same time. This is a generic message, which means you don’t have to write anything yourself. All you need to do is press a few buttons and it does the rest for you.
3 Alternatives To BeNaughty
BN is a pretty good hookup site but it’s always a good idea to hedge your bets by joining a few websites. Here are 3 solid alternatives:
Adult Friend Finder
Adult Friend Finder is probably the most popular hookup site out there. It’s home to millions of members, it’s reasonably priced, and it’s absolutely stuffed with features.
Adult Friend Finder is more than just a hookup site. It features webcam shows, video chats, and more so that you can have some sexy fun while you’re waiting on a message.
AFF is a tad graphic and it’s not to everyone’s taste. But if you’re planning to have some red hot sex with a stranger soon, it’s worth a shot. You can find more sites like Adult Friend Finder here.

Ashley Madison is notorious for being the website that encourages married men and real women to have an affair. It’s home to millions of adulterous couples who want to spice up their sex life by cheating on their spouse.
It’s not my place to pass judgment on the moral aspect of this website, but it’s definitely good at what it does. It also looks the part with a sensual layout and design that puts you in the mood for sex. You can find more sites like AshleyMadison's here.
Like BeNaughty, women get to use AM for free but guys have to pay.

Passion offers more bang for your buck than BeNaughty simply because it has more features. You can watch webcam shows, join in group chats, and even watch adult movies. It’s easy to join, there are 90 million+ members on here and the design is basic but easy to get used to.
It might not have the reputation of AFF or Ashley Madison, but Passion is still well worth a look if you’re hankering for a hookup. Read Passion.com review here.

BeNaughty’s Photo Policy Is Quite Strict. Why Is This?
Benaughty.com is very strict when it comes to which photos they will allow on the site. You can’t upload duplicate photos, nor can you upload any porn or pictures that include violence of non-human beings. They also want to be sure that the person in the photo is actually you so that they can cut down on disingenuous profiles.
BeNaughty is a hookup site that ‘cuts to the chase.’ It does this with a very simple registration form and very few distractions. The whole site is designed in such a way that people can meet each other as quickly as possible.
Does it work? It can definitely work for you but – as with any dating site – you need some patience. It’s certainly one of the easiest sites to use, it’s fun once you get into the swing of things, and there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t get chatting to people you fancy.
