Summary:

Well laid out, easy to use site full of people looking to score, apparently. You will have to wade through a bunch a crap to find them though.

Casual Affair LipsWe should point out before we begin that BeNaughty is not designed as a married affairs site. Their raison d’être is as a hook up site for singles and couples.

Sign Up Process

Sign up for your free profile at benaughty.com by entering your basic details. Once you’ve confirmed your email, you can leave your profile there and jump straight in trying to find someone, although we recommend you fill out your profile a little more. The profile completion is very easy allowing for photos, description, desires and preferences. With this simple process complete you can begin your search.

BeNaughty is primarily geared towards single men but the options are for single men and women as well as couples for either straight or gay hook ups. Due to the ratio of males to females, women get everything totally free.

 

Membership Base

BeNaughty Australia states 1,002,126 members (at the time of writing this only 3,098 were online) indicating that this membership base is really not very active. Best available information says that male female ratio is about 70:30 so guys, you’ll need to bring something special to the table to hook up.  Ladies, the odds are in your favour.

The member distribution seems to be fantastic as, when you enter any postcode, even in outlying regions, you will normally receive dozens of matches close by, even in areas that you wouldn’t think support populations that large. Maybe it takes into account people willing to travel quite a distance?

Anecdotal and personal experience would show that a large percentage of these profiles (namely female) are spammy or for BeNaughty’s ‘marketing’ or ‘conversation stimulation’ purposes, which is listed in their T&C’s. While there certainly are real profiles on the site, sifting down to them does present a challenge.

The remaining ‘real’ profiles are predominately straight males which, for the female members, is an absolute boon. Be warned, professional scam artists have and do frequent BeNaughty Australia. If you sign up, play it safe until you are sure about a person, and don’t give them your credit card details, ever.

 Ease of Use

The BeNaughty Australia site is well laid out with menus easily accessible at all times. The main interface displays all relevant information in ‘widget’ format making it very easy to get a full picture of your admirers, status, who’s available, notifications, profile, etc.

 

Site Experience

Signing up, navigating around and accessing site features is fantastic. The issues begin when you start using the site for its sole purpose, hooking up with someone.

Prior to signing on for a paid membership you will get a lot of interest from other ‘users’. Once paid up, expect to see those numbers tumble dramatically and expect a significant number of the profiles that do contact to be attempting to scam you.

The chat rooms are excellent and varied but be prepared to be spammed. The fakes stand out reasonably well from the people actually wanting a hook-up but, play it safe until you’re absolutely sure. Video chat is a less enjoyable experience and oftentimes is not operational.

Aside from these rather large problems, the site can deliver on its promise of getting you a hook up, you just have to wade through the crap to get it to happen.

Customer Support

Easy to find but don’t expect a response or a rectification anytime soon. Reported spam stays up, service issues are acknowledged but that’s about it and cancellations (as mentioned above) should be submitted well before re-bill date.

BeNaughty Customer support can be contacted by email here or you can call: 1800 187 218.

 

Conclusion

BeNaughty is a well laid out / thought out site that suffers from scam artists and less than satisfactory customer service. The subscription payment model is designed to keep money in their pocket rather than assist the user and the intermittent nature of some of the services is also frustrating.

Can you find someone on BeNaughty.com? Sure. Women will succeed more easily than Men but guys, if you can sift through the crap, it is possible to find a like-minded soul looking for some fun.

If you’re not put off by the spam and are looking for some near instant gratification, then BeNaughty might be the fit for you.

      Hey Me.

      You’ll have to log into your BeNaughty account to stop those emails. We have absolutely nothing to do with the site except that we provide a review of it based on our experiences. If you read the above review it will tell you how to remove your profile.

      Hi Robert,

      I think you may have us confused with the actual site BeNaughty. We simply provide a review of the site and can in no way affect the crenellation of your membership. Use the contact details provided above to get onto the BeNaughty administrators and good luck.

    So here’s my experience –

    Paid around $200.00 for 3 months plus upgrades. I was inundated with mails immediately from random “girls”, 99% of whom asked for my email, verification of my account and other easy to detect scam attempts.

    A few “women” were a little smarter but after finding out that I wouldnt’ go provide my email they tended to need to log off quickly despite them being online apparently 24/7.

    Cancelling account requires that you select cancel, then a bunch of confirmations and then ring a 1800 number to speak to a woman who asks you what site you want to cancel. Obviously done so guys who are a little insecure likely would choose to hangup rather than admit they’re on a sex site.

    Worst thing though and something which I found really questionable is I signed up for 3 months and when you ring up to cancel recurrent billing they cancel your subscription and remaining time so I ended up paying for 3 months, cancelled recurring billing after 2 days and my 3 months was cancelled as well 🙂
