FriendFinder-x is incredibly popular in the US and Europe, with the rest of the world only compromising a fifth of the user base. As is the case on many dating sites, men outnumber women, although the ratio is 3:1 here.

Login Process

You're encouraged to join from the homepage by clicking the all-caps "JOIN NOW!" button. This will start the five-page-long registration process. The first page involves your gender and the gender of the person or people you seek. Page 2 asks for your age and location, and page 3 asks for your email address, username, and password.

Page 4 has some basic information about yourself, including your marital status, sexual orientation, body type, and race. The fifth and final page requires you to write an introductory title and your profile and optionally write a short paragraph about yourself. If you need some assistance or don't know what to write, the site helpfully provides some ideas and even an instant writer where you merely fill in the gaps of a pre-written form.

You'll need to activate your account by clicking the link sent to your email address, but you don't need to do this immediately. After clicking the link, you're prompted to add photos to your profile page, but you can also skip this step or do it later.

Fully completing your profile will take some time because there's a lot to do. First, the basic profile section asks you to write a little about yourself and your ideal partner. The Profile Location page has space for information on your current location, your location if you're traveling, and where your hometown is. You'll then enter your physical information – your eye and hair color, height, body type, etc.

Next is some personal background information. This has basic info, including:

  • Sexual orientation
  • Smoking, drinking, and drug habits
  • Occupation
  • Whether you have children and whether you want more
  • What languages you speak

This is followed by your personality type, which takes you to a quiz. The quiz gives you your Myers Briggs personality type as a result, which looks like a combination of letters (INTJ-ESFP). There'll be a short explanation of your result as well, and you can choose to display your result on your profile page or not. Finally, you can add and manage photos and videos and verify your identity to get to 100% profile completion.

Once you've created your profile, logging out and back in is as easy as pie. Log out by clicking on your profile picture in the top right corner and clicking "Log Out", and log back in by clicking the "Log In" button in the top right corner of the home page. You'll need to enter your Friend Finder X login details, which refers to your username and password, and you'll be back on the site in no time.

App & Mobile Compatibility

Unfortunately, there is no FriendFinder X app currently available. It's a pity because a mobile app allows you to use the site on the go. However, a mobile site that is optimized for other devices is available. One big downside of a site that has so many features is that it's difficult to condense all those features to fit a smaller screen.

They've done a great job providing most of the same features; it could be difficult to navigate if you're less tech-savvy though. There's less screen space, so often, words are replaced with icons, and it can be challenging to decipher what each icon means. All the features are still available, and you may just need to search for them.

Men Vs Women

On FriendFinder/, men and women have identical experiences regarding registration, the cost of premium features, and using the rest of the site's features. Neither gender needs to give more information than the other, add more photos, nor pay extra for any features.

The only real difference is that female profiles may get more attention than male ones, which is common on dating sites nowadays. Especially on sites where the gender ratio is strongly skewed towards men as it is here.


Activity Feed

On the homepage of FriendFinder, once you're logged in, you will see an activity feed of what other site users are doing/uploading. This is a great community aspect of the site because it allows folks to like and comment on other people's photos and activities. This makes the whole dating site feel more interactive, like a social media platform and can be a nice ego boost when you get likes on your photos.

Because this activity feed also shows when people are broadcasting live, it features quite a lot of nudity and is, therefore, NSFW. The activity feed allows you to stay connected with your friends on the site and see when they are active. You will also be able to connect with new folks through it.

Community Tab – Contests, Bling, Blogs, & More

The community tab is what really sets FriendFinderX apart from other online dating sites. Here, you'll find all sorts of collaborative features that allow you to connect with other people on the site, even if you're not attempting to date them. These include things like blogs where you can write posts and get or give dating advice, monthly photo contests to vote in or enter, and an erotic stories section.

You can also create and add Bling to your profile. Bling is little GIFs or images that can add personality and flair to your profile. You can purchase Bling from the creators or sell them for points if you are the creator. Finally, there's a Sex Academy section, which contains short courses to help you improve your skills on everything from how to safely engage in anal to how to turn your partner on and how to improve your seduction skills in general.

Hot or Not

A feature that echoes a recent online dating revolution is the ability to swipe through profiles. On FriendFinder-X, this is called Hot or Not, where you can see someone's username and profile picture. You will be asked to indicate whether they are hot or not. If you say they're not hot, nothing will happen. If you click the hot button, the person gets added to your Hotlist.

While this is a superficial way to choose potential matches, there is something about swiping through profiles that is almost addictive. You can use this to create a shortlist of profiles you're interested in, check them out more closely, and then take things further.

Video Streams

Adult Friend Finder X has both model and member live streams going at any time of the day. These video streams are mostly NSFW and feature FriendFinder X girls or men playing with themselves or a partner. You can view one member video daily for free, but you can watch extra videos using points. If you have a gold membership, you can view unlimited member videos per day. All public model videos can be viewed for free.

Viewers can tip member performers using points and tip model performers using tokens. The tokens can also be used to 'Buzz Tip' the models, which sends a vibration directly to the sex toy they are using. Tokens are available to purchase – these are different from Points that you can earn for free while using the site.

This will automatically renew for the same period and at the same cost at the end of your chosen period. You can disable this by deactivating autorenewal in your profile settings.


Standard Contacts

While Gold Membership allows you to access anyone else's profiles and message them, only fellow Gold Members will be able to message you back.

The price varies based on the period you'd like to purchase:

Change Gender

In an unusual move, adult Friend Finder X allows you to change your gender after creating your profile – but at a cost. You can change from any of the offered genders to any different gender (including if you're now in a couple or a member of a group). Something important to note is that you'll need to do ConfirmID to make this change, and your 'new' gender must match the gender of your identity document. This change costs $9.90.

You can also highlight your profile on the site for a fee. Highlighting your profile will place a colourful border on it in search results and other users inboxes, which will help you stand out. This is available for 1 month or 3 months. It's an excellent way to get more attention if you are not getting noticed.

Points / Token Package

Points are used to send other members virtual gifts, view members' video streams, and tip performers on video streams. Points can be earned for free by generally using the site, for example, adding photos and videos, making status updates, liking and commenting on blog posts, etc. You can also purchase extra points:

  • 200 Points: $3.00
  • 500 Points: $6.00
  • 1000 Points: $10.00
Three packages and prices to get point on the dating site FriendFinderX.

  • Read Receipts (50 points/message)

Tokens are used on the model video site to either tip the performers, spin a wheel to make the performers do a certain action or have a private show. Tokens cost:

  • 200 Tokens: $3
  • 500 Tokens: $6
  • 1000 Tokens: $10

These are incredibly expensive and can be spent very quickly and easily, so if you're on a tight budget, it might be better to skip this purchase.

Safety & Security

Photo & Profile Moderation

As a first line of defense, any photos you add to the site must first be reviewed by the moderation team. This is a great way to prevent people from using photos of other people or celebrities because they can be stopped before even being posted.

It is particularly helpful because people who use fake photos are often up to no good; they may be underage or attempt to scam people. This is also a way for FriendFinderX to ensure that their photo guidelines are being followed, as well as the rest of the terms of service. This helps to keep FriendFinder X legit.

Photo Cards & Confirm ID

Catfish and scammers are a big risk on most dating websites, and Friend Finder X offers two ways to confirm your identity and prove that you are legitimate. The first way to do this is with a Photo Card. This involves taking a photo of yourself with your username visible somewhere in the photo. Naturally, this must be physically in the picture and not digitally edited in. You can write it on a piece of paper or your body parts and get creative with it.

The second way is to confirm your ID by uploading a copy of your government-issued ID, such as your passport, driver's license, or other photo ID. You cannot block out any information on the documents; this is an excellent way to tell who is real on FriendFinderX. This also ensures that you're speaking to someone who truly is the person they claim to be. You're incentivized to do the step with a 500-point bonus after confirming your ID.

Privacy Policy & Terms Of Use has a seemingly robust and secure Privacy Policy and Terms of Use document that does not contain any cause for alarm. There is no evidence of fake, site-run profiles, and while there is some third-party involvement, these are necessary to run the site. For example, the payments are handled by a third-party service provider.

Another standard clause is that you give FriendFinderX the rights to any media you upload to the site, meaning that they reserve the right to use your photos or videos as marketing material in the future. They do not need to pay you royalties for this. While this sounds a little alarming, it is a common clause that all dating sites include and is a good thing to be aware of.


FriendFinder-X has a lot of features available, which can make it difficult to find your feet at first. Once you get the hang of it, this is an excellent benefit to using the site. There are articles and blog posts to read and an activity feed to show you who's online and active. You can also watch live streams when you're feeling frisky and use the sex academy to teach you new skills or help you perfect existing ones.

Gold Membership is expensive but is necessary if you want to communicate with other members. So, if you're looking for a date or IRL meetup, Friend Finder X is worth a try if you've got the budget for it. And even if it's out of your budget right now, it's still worth creating a free profile and exploring all the available free content.
