Beware of Aff.com. They post fake profiles in an attempt to lure men into paying for a membership. I was a member for several months, my mistake. They also kept turning my "auto renew" on when I would set it "off". I would catch it after i was billed on my credit card. There are a few real women on there though. I was fortunate enough to meet one only to tell me she seen employment listings from AFF looking for women to post fake profiles. This company is a SCAM and needs a class action lawsuit against it!

AFF is a SCAM

AUTHOR: Yogacpl - (U.S.A.)

I believe that AFF is guilty of misrepresentation in that a large percentage of the online webcams never come up, or are fake, or merely videos looping. The chat rooms are plagued by bots that post meaningless babble and there are only a few chatters that I truly believe are working on behalf of AFF. Their are definitely fake profiles.

SLS is a much cheaper option, $150/lifetime vs. $150/year.

AFF is a good site for men viewing nude wives, whether the wives are really the girl next door or a paid participant. SLS is a good site for couples who really want to meet other couples and learn more about lifestyle events in your area.

So, if you are interested in a good porn site, AFF is a good, and expensive option. If you are interested in the swing lifestyle you are better off saving your money and going with (((Redacted)))

New Owner

AUTHOR: Fishe1 - (U.S.A.)

I'm a former member of AFF. I know for sure that there are real women on the site. I dated a very well known member, and corresponded with the "former" owner/CEO Andrew Conrue. There were some email phishing bots on the site, but many people there are genuine. The nature of the site lends itself to scams so I recommend you carefully scrutinize the people you contact and AFF. There were technical problems with the website, but I recieved free months of membership, and upgrades for compensation. My auto-renew was turned on a couple times, now I know it wasn't me. I voided the credit card #with them, and they credited my card. The company changed hands some months ago, so I don't know how it is now, but I have seen more agressive marketing.

To Rhonda from South Dakota

AUTHOR: Monte - (U.S.A.)

Rhonda's rebuttal:
I am wondering if this guy could point me out to the woman he found? I am a woman who has been on the site for a couple of years, I am a free member (which means I HAVE NOT been billed repeatedly). I don't understand why this guy hasn't just changed his membership to a standard membership if he is not wanting to be charged? I know I, for one, am a REAL female on the site, an have conversed with a few, quite a few, other females on the chats.

To Rhonda, you ask why I don't just change my membership to a standard membership? Dumb question honestly, but it deserves an answer. BECAUSE when men have standard memberships, they can't write to women PERIOD, unlike when a woman has a standard membership. Isnt that sexual descrimination?

Rhonda writes:
I, also, have NEVER been offered a paid position for my being a member. I know they do have the 'magazine' type articles on their site, maybe he had spoken with one of them and they did get paid for being on the site and was paid for writing articles for that.

Rhonda, are you operating with all cells?? OF COURSE they arent going to offer a paid position for being a member. You have to find the listing where AFF is advertising for this and respond to that, duh!


Rhonda writes:

Another solution for this guy not to be billed, cancel his membership completely and quit the site!! There are others.

Good advice actually... or maybe I'll just hang in there so I can be a part of the
settlement when AFF get hits with a class action lawsuit like Yahoo Personals did.

It's a great site!

AUTHOR: Cristina - (U.S.A.)

I have also been on a member of this site for a few years. I do pay for the "upgraded" membership though, but I've never seen fake ads....and I've certainly never met fake people!
