F-Buddy
Review

F-Buddy offers you the chance to get down and dirty with their misbehaving members - no strings attached."You came here looking for some steamy action and we're going to make sure you get it," says the site's welcome message. It's free to join and working the site is simple. You can be as honest as you like about your preferences and pleasures and in return the site is honest about costs and conditions. It won't leave you exposed like some casual sites - except for in the bedroom!

The Good

The design is a class above many sites in this category. There are bold red buttons that make everything clear on F-Buddy from sending messages to cancelling membership. You can search member Diaries for free which helps you get a good sense of the quality of hook-ups before you pay up. 

The Bad

You have to add your zip code before you can start browsing. The 'Add Your ZipCode' pop-up window doesn't disappear until you have completed this stage. This means instant access to local matches so it's not that big a deal.

Network Reach

Hundreds of thousands of active singles online.

Creating your profile

Creating a profile is easy but it's worth taking a little time to do this right. It can make all the difference between a lonely night and a guaranteed hook up. Once you you have added a few sentences about yourself you can speed through a section of check boxes to get to the business in hand. Tick if you want a casual encounter or a discreet relationship; a threesome or a same-sex session. Interests are all of an openly sexual nature so there's no excuse for not getting exactly what you want.
