DatingSiteGuides / Benaughty

As someone who has tried nearly every dating site and app out there at this point, I consider myself a bit of an online dating connoisseur. I’ve seen it all – the good, the bad, and the downright cringeworthy. So when I came across, a risque-sounding dating site that promised casual fun and flirty connections, I was instantly intrigued. Could this finally be the hookup haven I’ve been searching for? I eagerly created a profile to find out.

In this comprehensive review, I’ll take you along every step of my BeNaughty journey. From the initial sign-up process to my interactions with other members, I’ll give you an uncensored look at what this controversial dating site is really all about. Is BeNaughty a scam or the real deal? Read on to get the full scoop.

First Impressions and Signing Up

Upon landing on BeNaughty’s homepage, I was greeted by a sultry-looking couple along with the tagline « Flirty Singles, Naughty Dating. » The design was sleek and modern with a playful, flirtatious vibe. So far, so good.

Creating an account was quick and painless. I simply provided my gender, the gender I was interested in connecting with, location, age, email, and a password. After agreeing to the site’s fairly standard terms of service, my profile was live. The whole process took under 5 minutes.

One minor annoyance was that BeNaughty required me to verify my email address before I could start browsing matches. This is likely intended to prevent spam and fake accounts, but it was still a slight buzzkill when I was eager to dive in. However, the verification email arrived instantly and I was able to confirm my account with a single click, so the delay was minimal.

Upon logging in, BeNaughty prompted me to fill out the rest of my profile details, including body type, ethnicity, marital status, children, education level, profession, income, lifestyle habits like drinking and smoking, and a bio. While this initial questionairre was optional, BeNaughty notes that profiles with more information tend to get more views and interactions. Makes sense.

You also have the option to verify your photos, which earns you a « Photo Verified » badge. This involves taking a real-time selfie copying a random pose shown on screen, which is then reviewed by moderators. It’s a bit of an awkward process, but might give some singles peace of mind knowing the person they’re talking to actually looks like their pics.

Overall, signing up for BeNaughty was incredibly easy – almost too easy, as I’d soon come to find out. But more on that later. With a completed profile, it was time to explore this tantalizing dating jungle.

The BeNaughty User Experience

BeNaughty’s interface is clean, intuitive and easy to navigate. The main dashboard displays your current matches, online members, new members, and any messages you’ve received. You can also see who has viewed your profile, « liked » you, or added you to their favorites, though this requires a premium membership.

Speaking of which, BeNaughty operates on a « freemium » model, meaning you can create an account and browse profiles for free, but most communication features require upgrading to a paid subscription. As a standard (free) member, your interactions are limited to « winking » at other users, adding them to your favorites list, and sending a handful of pre-written icebreaker messages like « I’m intrigued… » or « You seem interesting… »

While it’s nice that BeNaughty lets you get a feel for the site before whipping out your credit card, the restrictions on standard members are significant. You can’t read or reply to messages from other users, use the live chat or video chat features, or view full-sized profile pics. Essentially, you’re left with the online dating equivalent of window shopping.

That said, one unique perk to BeNaughty’s setup is that women actually get more privileges than men. Any female user can send messages and chat for free, as long as she has a profile photo and has been active on the site within the past 3 months. According to BeNaughty, this leads to a more balanced gender ratio and incentivizes guys to engage since they know the women they’re talking to are legit.

With a ratio of 53% men to 47% women, BeNaughty does indeed have a larger female user base than many other hookup-oriented dating sites. For comparison, AdultFriendFinder’s membership is about 65% male. So while BeNaughty still has slightly more men than women overall, the gap is significantly smaller than most of its competitors.

As for the quality of BeNaughty’s user base, that’s where things start to get a little questionable. While browsing profiles, I regularly came across accounts with only one photo, very little bio information, and bland, generic « About Me » sections. Some profiles even contained obvious spelling and grammatical errors, leading me to wonder if they were created by bots or scammers.

BeNaughty claims to have a strict vetting process and automatically flags potentially fake profiles for review. However, with a free basic membership being so easy to set up, it’s inevitable that some less-than-genuine users will slip through the cracks. This isn’t necessarily unique to BeNaughty, but it’s something to be aware of as you’re vetting your matches.

Matching and Interacting on BeNaughty

BeNaughty offers several ways to find potential matches who tickle your fancy. You can perform a custom search using filters like location, age, body type, ethnicity, and even cup size (yes, really), or hit the « Like Gallery » to quickly swipe through profiles Tinder-style, tapping the heart on cuties you’d like to meet or the « X » on those you’d rather pass on.

As someone who values substance over surface attraction, I appreciate that BeNaughty also takes your stated dating preferences into account when suggesting matches. You’re asked to specify if you’re looking for something casual or serious, your preferred age range, and distance radius. While these parameters are fairly basic compared to the in-depth personality tests of sites like eHarmony, it’s nice to have some control over who shows up in your match feed.

One feature I was surprised to find on a hookup site was the option to seek out couples for threesomes or group sex. As open-minded as I consider myself, that’s a tad too naughty for my blood. Still, if you and your partner are looking to spice things up in the bedroom, BeNaughty could be one place to find a willing third.

Of course, matching is only half the battle – the real test of any dating site is how easy it is to actually connect and communicate with your virtual crushes. Here’s what it’s like to interact on BeNaughty:

  • Messaging: If you’re a man or non-paying woman, your messaging abilities are limited on BeNaughty. You can send winks and 5 pre-written icebreaker messages per day, but that’s it unless you cough up the cash for a membership. Paid subscribers have unlimited messaging privileges.
  • Chat: BeNaughty has a live chat room (again, only accessible to premium members) where you can mix and mingle with multiple users at once. In my experience, the chat room had a friendly, flirty vibe, but the conversations didn’t often evolve beyond surface-level small talk. If you’re hoping to forge a real connection, you’re better off moving things to private messages.
  • Video Chat: As a premium feature, BeNaughty lets you video chat with matches using your computer’s webcam. The video quality was surprisingly crisp and clear when I tested it out. While I’m not sure I’d use this feature regularly, it could help verify if the person you’re chatting with matches their pics before meeting up in person.
  • Forums: BeNaughty hosts several discussion forums where you can bond with other members over various topics, from dating advice to sexual fantasies. While not the most active boards I’ve seen, they provide another opportunity to connect with singles beyond just private messaging.
  • Cute or Not: This Tinder-esque game has you quickly rate other users as « Cute » or « Not » based on their profile pic. If you and another member rate each other as « Cute », BeNaughty will inform you of the mutual match. It’s a fun, low-pressure way to discover new people you may be attracted to.

At the end of the day, BeNaughty provides all the standard communication options you’d expect from a dating site, with the notable limitation of keeping many features behind a paywall. The user interface is intuitive and easy to use, even if you’re not particularly tech-savvy.

The Quality of BeNaughty Profiles

Since BeNaughty is primarily a hookup site, you’d expect the profiles to be focused more on physical attributes than personality quirks. And for the most part, you’d be right – many profiles feature bedroom eyes, bulging muscles, and skimpy outfits.

However, I was pleasantly surprised that a good chunk of BeNaughty members put genuine effort into their profiles. Beyond just showing off their bodies, they shared details about their interests, careers, and what they were looking for in a partner. Of course, these more fleshed-out profiles were the exception rather than the rule, but it gave me hope that there were indeed real people behind the online facades.

I also have to give props to BeNaughty for having a diverse user base in terms of age, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. While the largest demographic appears to be straight men and women in their 20s and 30s, I encountered plenty of singles in their 40s, 50s, and older, as well as a decent showing of gay, lesbian, and bisexual folks. No matter what you’re into, BeNaughty likely has some members who fit the bill.

That said, the number of incomplete or downright suspicious profiles on BeNaughty is impossible to ignore. As I mentioned earlier, it’s common to find profiles with barely any information filled out or just one mediocre selfie. Even more concerning are the profiles that look like they were ripped straight from an adult film – a little too polished and professional if you know what I mean.

While BeNaughty does have a verification system in place, it’s not mandatory, so there’s no guarantee the hottie you’re chatting up is the real deal. According to BeNaughty, the site averages about 13.3 million visits per month, with 500,000 active weekly users. I have no way to verify if those numbers are inflated, but I can say that during my time on the site, I received messages and chat requests from a suspicious number of « women » despite my profile being quite barebones initially.

Again, these issues aren’t unique to BeNaughty and plague pretty much all dating platforms to some degree. But it’s disappointing that a site promoting itself as a place to find genuine casual sex partners doesn’t have more safeguards in place to weed out scammers and fakes. As with any online dating endeavor, proceed with caution and a healthy dose of skepticism on BeNaughty.

The Numbers Game

Since BeNaughty doesn’t publicly share detailed membership statistics, the only way to gauge the site’s male/female ratio and user activity is from our own experiences and those of other reviewers.

In my time on BeNaughty, I received roughly 80 messages, 150 chat invites, and 600 profile views over the course of one month with a free account and two weeks as a paid member. That averages out to 2-3 messagesper day, 5 chat requests, and 20 profile views. Not too shabby for a guy who wouldn’t normally consider himself a chick magnet.

However, only about 1 in 5 of these interactions felt genuine. The rest were either copy-pasted pickup lines, links to external sites, or requests for financial help from beautiful international women who seemed suspiciously into me. I’m flattered ladies, but my wallet stays closed.

Your mileage may vary, but based on other BeNaughty reviews I’ve read, my experience seems to be pretty typical – a decent amount of engagement, but much of it superficial or dubious. To be fair, weeding through lackluster matches is pretty par for the course with online dating in general.

If you put in the effort to complete your profile, upload multiple photos, and send personalized messages to people who intrigue you, you’ll likely have better luck than simply waiting for sexy singles to flock to you. Like most things in life, you get out of BeNaughty what you put into it.

BeNaughty Membership Costs

If BeNaughty’s basic free features just aren’t cutting it, you can upgrade to a paid subscription to access all the site has to offer. Here’s a rundown of BeNaughty’s premium membership costs:

Membership LengthMonthly CostTotal Cost
1 Day Trial$0.99$0.99
1 Week Trial$1.00$1.00
1 Month$28.80$28.80
3 Months$16.20$48.60

As you can see, BeNaughty’s paid plans start at a reasonable $0.99 for a 1-day trial, which lets you test out all the premium features for a full 24 hours. Just be aware that your account is automatically billed for a monthly subscription after the trial ends unless you cancel.

If you’re willing to commit, BeNaughty’s monthly price of $28.80 is on par with many other dating sites, albeit a bit steeper than some. Opting for the 3-month bundle will drop your monthly cost down to $16.20, which is more reasonable but requires dropping nearly $50 upfront.

So what do you actually get for your hard-earned dough? Here are the premium perks:

  • Unlimited messaging and responding to messages
  • Access to all member photos (including full-size versions)
  • Ability to send winks, gifts, & special video messages to catch users’ attention
  • Adfree browsing experience
  • View who liked/favorited you and when they were last active
  • Advanced search filters like cup size, income, and more
  • Premium customer support priority

Honestly, the main benefit of a BeNaughty subscription is being able to freely communicate with other members. The additional search options are nice but not essential, and I could take or leave the ad-free interface. However, messaging is so restricted for free members that ponying up for a paid plan is borderline required if you want any chance of securing a date or hookup.

When you upgrade to a BeNaughty premium plan, just be sure to keep an eye on your subscription status, as your membership will automatically renew at the end of the initial term you select. You can disable this auto-renewal at any time in the Billing History section of your account settings.

If you do decide to pull the plug on your BeNaughty subscription, note that the site does not provide refunds for unused time on your membership plan. Consider setting a reminder on your calendar a few days before your subscription is set to renew if you want to avoid unexpected charges.
