11 Best Hookup Apps & Sites (100% Free Trials)

Hayley Matthews Updated:

I’ve known plenty of people who aren’t interested in getting into a relationship, but they still want to date around. Maybe they just broke up with someone and want to have some fun. Maybe they’ve never really been the commitment type. Or maybe they have another reason to remain unattached.

A Tinder survey revealed 72% of millennials on the app have made a conscious decision to remain single and enjoy #SwipeLife. It can be hard for these men and women to move fast and date around on a general dating site or app because others may look down on them for not doing what traditional society expects.

To help these singles out, we’ve put together a list highlighting the top sites and apps for hooking up. No shame, no games, no astronomical prices — just adult fun!

1

BeNaughty

BEST
OF

“Fun dating with no waiting” is what BeNaughty promises singles, and the site and app keeps that promise in a variety of ways. Let’s look at BeNaughty by the numbers: 13.3 million monthly users, 52% women vs. 48% men, 89% success rate, and 100% secure. Of course, BeNaughty is also absolutely free to sign up for — not to mention upload photos and videos, receive matches, flirt, and browse profiles by age, location, appearance, gender, sexual orientation, and appearance.

Adult Friend Finder, also sometimes known as AFF, is one of the longest running hookup sites and apps in the online dating industry. Its parent company was founded in 1996, and the site launched in 1998. From private messaging to erotic blogs to group forums to videos, you’ll never run out of ways to connect with the tens of millions of members who come from all over the world.

FriendFinder-X

BEST
OF

If you’re looking for some turned-on friends, FriendFinder-X is a go-to option. FriendFinder-X calls itself “the world’s largest casual personals site” and “where good girls do bad things.” Simply provide a username, email, and some details about yourself and your desires, and then the site/app is your oyster. FriendFinder-X doesn’t ask for any credit card information during the registration, browsing, and flirting stages.

4

MenNation

BEST
OF

Gay, bisexual, and sexually curious men love MenNation because it’s popular, it’s free, it’s safe, and it works. Plus, you won’t have to filter through profiles of straight men as well as straight, lesbian, and bisexual women (unlike what may happen on more general hookup sites and apps). MenNation is 100% dudes. You have to complete a few steps to become a member of MenNation, but it should only take you a couple minutes or so.

5

LesbianPersonals

BEST
OF

LesbianPersonals caters to horny lesbians, of course, but it also caters to horny straight, bisexual, queer, and simply curious women. Whether you want a one-night stand, full-blown affair, swinging relationship, threesome, orgy, dominant, or submissive, you can find it on LesbianPersonals. Most importantly, you can find these casual encounters without having to pay anything.

6

Ashley Madison

BEST
OF

The motto “Life is short. Have an affair.” says it all. Ashley Madison is a dating site where you can find affairs. Or you and your partner can browse the site together for a third to your relationship. You don’t have to worry about being judged on Ashley Madison. Express your fantasies, and you’ll match with numerous people who feel the same way. In addition, your wallet won’t take a hit on the site because it’s free to try. If you end up deciding Ashley Madison isn’t for you, you didn’t have to fully commit to the site anyway.

Tinder

BEST
OF

Tinder is considered a hookup app to a lot of people because its swiping feature focuses primarily on looks and location. Tinder shows you the hottest dates in the closest proximity to you. Swipe right if you’re interested in the person you see, or swipe left if you’re not. If you both swipe right on each other, it’s a match. Then chatting is enabled. Tinder has a premium membership that’ll give you access to features like reversing a swipe if you went the wrong way. However, it’s not really necessary — a free basic membership gives you all the features you need to find a sex buddy.

Grindr

BEST
OF

Grindr is nicknamed “the gay Tinder” because the matching systems are very similar, but obviously Grindr is only meant for men who are interested in men. Swipe as much or as little as you want, and set up an in-person meetup once someone hot catches your eye. Something else we love about Grindr is that the team gets involved in the LGBTQ+ community by launching campaigns that fight against harassment, discrimination, and other issues these folks may face.

SaucyDates

BEST
OF

SaucyDates is a leading hookup app and site, and it has won numerous awards for its work, including Best Up-and-Coming Sex Website in 2013, Most Innovative in 2014, and Best New Dating Brand in 2016. Some of SaucyDates’ pros include anti-scammer technology, an informational sex and relationship blog, and free access to every feature (e.g., the HOT button). All that’s left to do is download SaucyDates onto your laptop, phone, or tablet.

10

DOWN

BEST
OF

If you want to get down with some sexy strangers and even some sexy friends, you may want to turn to DOWN. The app uses Facebook to discreetly connect you with friends and friends of friends, who you can then determine if you want to date or get down with. The other person won’t know what you chose unless they chose the same thing, so your privacy remains intact. In fact, your profile only appears on DOWN when you are actually online and seeking a playmate who’s down for anything.

Feeld

BEST
OF

Open-minded singles and couples are more than welcome to join Feeld, which describes itself as “a space where you can explore your desires and find your people.” Basically, Feeld is the dating site for polyamorous singles and couples. It also doesn’t matter what your gender or sexual identity is. Feeld launched in 2014 in London, and it’s remained an independent company ever since. You can get access to Feeld for free via iTunes or Google Play, where it has 3.9 stars and 3 stars, respectively.

Now You Can Hook Up On Your Terms!

We all have different goals in life, and, for some people, those goals don’t include a relationship or marriage… at least for now. Casual daters shouldn’t be made to feel bad about this, and they shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to find a like-minded and equally horny match. It’s safe to say the teams behind the hookup apps and sites above feel the same way. So feel free to be 100% honest and go after what you truly want — that’s what these platforms are here for!
