Dating apps for hookups help singles and swingers come out of their shell and embrace the raunchy side of life in a private space. Everyone has their own idea about what sexy is, and you can explore yours without coming out to the whole world.

In the video for Selena Gomez’s song “Fetish,” she eats lipstick and glass, rolls around on a kitchen floor, and talks about someone being hooked on her body and taking them “over and under and twisted up like origami.” It’s strange, it’s sexy, and it’s sensational.

We’re not all pop stars, so we probably don’t want to sing about our fetishes to the whole world. But there are discreet places where we can express our sexual desires, and those places are on hookup apps. Today, we present you with the 11 best apps for hooking up that will work on Androids and iPhones and that also don’t ask for any payment information.

Adult Friend Finder is like the the mac and cheese of hookup apps — frisky singles love indulging in this sinfully good sex app as much as hungry people love indulging in this sinfully good dish. Along with free registration, Adult Friend Finder provides free profile creation, photo uploads, browsing, match suggestions, and communication (e.g., sending likes or adding members as friends). With more than 95 million users and counting, Adult Friend Finder will most certainly satisfy your cravings.

When you’re in the mood to be naughty, there’s no better (or more aptly named) place to turn to than BeNaughty. The app’s advanced features include search filters for age, appearance, gender, sexual orientation, zip code, and type of encounter, among others, as well as profile verification and SSL encryption to ensure every member you’re talking to is real. And you can save your money for more important things because a basic membership on BeNaughty won’t cost you a cent.

The FriendFinder-X brand was founded in 1996 and has been a leader in the online hookup industry ever since. FriendFinder-X is “where good girls do bad things,” and you can find a hot match no matter what your “bad” interest is. From private photo albums and videos to live chat and two-way webcams, you’ll never run out of ways to talk dirty and arrange a meeting with that special horny someone.

BEST
OF

Created in 2002, Ashley Madison works in a similar fashion to other hookup sites and apps, but it’s specifically for people of all sexual orientations who want to have an affair. You must be over 18 to join, and it only takes a few steps to get a profile up: 1) Provide your gender. 2) Say what you’re here for (e.g., long-term affair). 3) Enter your username, location, and email. Ashley Madison doesn’t charge for any of this!

Tinder

BEST
OF

Tinder isn’t a hookup-only app, but that’s what millions of people use it for because it’s location-based, free, and quick. Sign up through Facebook (don’t worry, the app will never post on your wall), and your information and pictures will automatically be added. You’ll be able to message once you and another member both swipe right on each other. For international rendezvous, use Tinder Passport to find sex partners beforehand so you can get right to hooking up as soon as you get there.

Grindr

BEST
OF

Often called the gay Tinder, Grindr also makes match recommendations depending on where you are and who around you fits your criteria, and you’ll swipe right or left to yay or nay those matches, respectively. Available in almost every country and with 2.4 million daily users, this hookup app can be downloaded for free on iTunes and Google Play. Bisexual, queer, and questioning men are equally welcome on Grindr.

Meet exciting matches, wherever you go is OneNightFriend’s mission, and the dating website and app accomplish this by offering a free, streamlined date experience. The swiping tool lets you know when a compatible match is in your area and encourages you to send a message right away so you don’t miss out on the romantic connection. If you want to take the conversation to the next sexy level, you can upgrade to a premium membership, which includes unlimited communication and a boost in local searches.

Whiplr

BEST
OF

On Whiplr, it’s all about the messaging. Talk with horny singles and couples from all over the world (as well as right around the corner) in real time via emails, calls, video chats, and public and private groups. Whiplr even has pre-written icebreakers to help you out if you’re shy. Once you find someone you can’t resist, send them a hot virtual gift or a picture that only they can see. Samantha Leal, of Marie Claire, said Whiplr “works to connect users who want to explore the world of fetish without the fear of being judged.”

Feeld

BEST
OF

Feeld has millions of users (1.8 million, to be exact) of various backgrounds, races, ethnicities, religions, cultures, relationship statuses, genders, ages, and sexual orientations, but what they all have in common is they’re open-minded. Whatever pleasures and fantasies you’re into, feel free to safely explore them here and connect with those who have the same passion. Feeld has three and a half stars in the App Store and Google Play and has been called one of the “few dating apps that welcomes non-normative relationship models” by Splinter News.

PURE

BEST
OF

Not only is PURE “an awesome hookup app” made for “awesome people” who want to cut to the chase, it wants to take back the one-night stand from misleading movies like “No Strings Attached” and “Friends With Benefits” and make it what it was supposed to be. First, submit a photo, which will then become a meeting request that will appear in the People in Your Area feed for one hour before it’s deleted. If someone responds and you’re interested, too, you have one hour to arrange a place and time to meet before the conversation is deleted.

Down

BEST
OF

Privacy and anonymity are two of the most important components of a hookup app, and Down has them both down pat. Similar to other apps, Down asks you to create a profile via Facebook, but none of your friends will know you’re on the app. You’ll then be shown sexy person after sexy person, and you decide if you want to get down with them or get dates. Either way, they won’t know what you chose — Down will only send a notification if the person agrees. The rest is up to you!
