2020 4Club Review: Our Hookup Results After Months Of Use

Landing page of our 4Club review

4Club markets itself as the best online service if you’re searching for new friends, flirts or relationships. It’s also supposedly “the hottest place to hook up.” But our 4Club review reveals if this website is the real deal.

There are plenty of online dating websites that promise you a wealth of opportunities to hook up. Like 4Club.com, these sites often entice you with erotic pictures of women that you might meet on the site. But of course, we had to find out for sure if hooking up is as easy as the site claims. After all, there are only a handful of sites that actually deliver. . .

How I reviewed 4Club
I reviewed this site using the same process we use to rate all online dating websites here at BeyondAges.

First off, I left my profile blank for 24 hours. If a blank online dating profile is bombarded with steamy messages, that’s a clear sign there’s something dodgy going on. After all, how many legitimately beautiful women would throw themselves at an anonymous profile with no pictures and no bio?

After this, I registered for a paid membership, sent messages to 50+ profiles based near me and noted how responsive they were. How many would respond? How many would swap contact details – and how does this compare to other websites? Was I actually able to set up any dates?

In all of our online dating website reviews, we use the same set of generic profile photos, bio and opening messages. This allows for a fair comparison between all the online dating services we review.

Once that’s done, I then opt for a premium membership to see what all the fuss is about. This helps me see if paying for the membership (or in some cases, messaging credits) is worth it.

So, is this really one of the best online spots for connecting and hooking up with beautiful women or will I be warning you of a 4Club scam? Read on to find out.

Our Full Club4 Review

This 4Club review will cover every key aspect of this website. But first, here’s a basic summary.

I have rated this site out of 10 for each important element of an online dating website. To create some context, these ratings are compared to Adult FriendFinder, which we rate as the greatest online hookup website of all time.

Our Recommendation

After spending a lot of time using 4Club we have to recommend that you avoid it. As you can perhaps tell from these ratings, using 4Club.com turned out to be a frustrating experience. The website is easy to use. But the chances of meeting — or even communicating — with any users is slim to none. Like many other sites that claim to help men and women connect they just can’t deliver. You’re going to be much better off with another site or app if you don’t want to waste your time.

Here are the most important things you need to know about this site.

You’ll be sent a handful of spammy messages

After 24 hours, I logged back into 4Club.com and found that my blank account had received messages from eight profiles.

Messages received after 24 hours with a blank profile

However, 4Club won’t let you read the messages until you pay for a premium membership. It’s a classic strategy for a sketchy dating site to automate messages from hot female accounts and make you pay to respond.

This site goes one step further and makes you pay to even read them. It even creates fear of loss by attaching a self-destruction timer to the messages. I went ahead and bought a premium membership so I could read these messages. But, as expected, I was disappointed at what I found.

Messages from women

You’ll notice in the screenshot above that most of these messages were extremely basic, spammy and several accounts had sent the same message! I’ve seen plenty of websites that use bots to send messages — but 4Club does a terrible job at even hiding this.

There are plenty of profiles but once you try to message them, 4Club appears to be a ghost town

I searched for women in my local area (Columbus, Ohio) to message, and found hundreds upon hundreds of profiles. Several were marked as “Online Now.” In order to increase my chances of getting responses, I spent messages to 50 nearby women who were marked as “Online Now.”

After waiting for more than 72 hours, I had still received ZERO replies.

To test the website further, I replied to the accounts that originally messaged me too. Still no response. All signs point to 4Club being a ghost town – and certainly not one worth spending your money on.

Lastly, take a look at the default search results:

Duplicate photos in the search results

There are so many repeated profile photos with computer-generated usernames. On the bright side, 4Club doesn’t make it hard for users to figure out that there probably aren’t any legit women on the site.

Why would you use 4Club when you can use Adult FriendFinder?

Put simply, spending money on a membership at 4Club is a horrible idea — especially when you can use websites like Adult FriendFinder instead. Adult FriendFinder makes the same promises as 4Club – single women, fun online flirting, quick and easy hookups – but it actually delivers. 

Having launched in the early 2000s, Adult FriendFinder has built an active user base all over the world. It’s the #1 online destination for women searching for one-night stands and casual relationships. No matter where in the world you’re based, you should have no problem finding real women to connect with.

Don’t be surprised if they’re keen to meet up with you quickly either! Most women in the Adult FriendFinder community are keen to meet and get down to business without wasting too much time. There has been no better time to test this website out, either. Adult FriendFinder is currently running a free trial for new users.

So, what are you waiting for? Use Adult FriendFinder to find horny women in your local area now – and make sure to thank us for the recommendation later 😉

Pros and cons from our review of 4Club

Below, I have summarized the main pros and cons of the site. Honestly, though, it was a stretch to find any advantages of using this website.

Positives
Negatives
  • Decent live cam service, which you can access for free
  • You can’t send or read messages without paying for a premium membership
  • Automated spam messages trick you into signing up for a premium membership
  • You’ll find it near-on impossible to find any account to reply to you

Profiles, pictures, and members on 4Club.com

Member profile with a few photos and not much else

The 4Club.com website looks somewhat clunky and old-fashioned. This includes the design of the profiles. You’ll be given some space to write a short bio, but I couldn’t find any female profiles who have completed this. Another red flag.

There are a few multiple-choice questions to help members reveal more about themselves. This includes a selection of activities you are seeking.

There’s a feed of updates posted on the right-hand side of members’ profiles so that it’s easy for others to see and comment on new photos each user has posted. At the top of a member’s profile, you’ll be able to see when they last logged in. This is a feature that would prove useful on all online dating websites.

On the whole, the female profiles on 4Club aren’t as attractive as what you’ll find on other websites. On top of that, when you do find an attractive woman on the site, chances are, her profile has been duplicated across different computer-generated profiles.

(Of course, this point is somewhat irrelevant on websites where it’s so difficult to find one member who will reply to you.)

Review of the 4Club design

The site looks old-fashioned

The main dashboard of 4Club.com will recommend profiles using several categories.

  • Who’s online now. A selection of members who are currently browsing the site.
  • Sex seekers around. A selection of members near you who have marked themselves as seeking “sex or maybe more.”
  • Members in videochat. A list of live models in the videochat section of the website.
  • Selfie area. A feed of the most recent photos uploaded to the site.

The design of the website and the mobile app is more than adequate if a little old-fashioned.

Messaging and chatting we experienced

Conversation with a user

Without a paid membership, you won’t be able to read any messages, reply to them or start conversations. With a paid membership, you can send unlimited messages to unlimited members. If you prefer, you can comment on another member’s photos. However, there is no option to send pictures or videos.

To view and continue your existing conversations, click the envelope icon in the main navigation. This icon will show you how many new unread messages are in your inbox.

What can you do with a free membership?

You can view profiles and live webcams. To read or send messages, you’ll need to buy a premium membership.

Advertisements

The site is full of big ads

There are no third-party advertisements on 4club.com. However, you will see a few spicy ads for the website’s live cam service. You’ll see one of the live streams in the bottom-left corner of the screen, plus a few banners on the main dashboard.

4Club.com Pricing

Site prices

There is only one tier of premium membership, but there are several options as far as the length of your membership. The longer your membership, the more you’ll pay overall, although it costs less per day of usage.

You can either pay:

  • $2.45 for a two-day trial;
  • $12 per month for a 12-month membership;
  • $9.66 per month for an 18-month membership;
  • $38 per month for a one-month membership.

Your membership will auto-renew at the same price unless you cancel it more than 24 hours before it is due to expire. None of these packages provide good value for money. Hopefully, the majority of paying users take on the two-day trial – and quickly realize it’s useless.

Is 4Club legit?

It’s definitely not the “hottest place to hook up.” In fact, there aren’t many worse places to find a romantic partner. Honestly, you’d have more chances of finding one in the back alley of your local Chinese restaurant.

Should I worry about a 4Club scam?

We have to be careful when labeling websites as a “scam.” So, I’ll just present you with the facts.

This website:

  • presents itself as “the hottest place to hook up;”
  • tempts you into buying a premium membership with automated messages that you can’t read without paying;
  • is a virtual ghost town.

I messaged over 50 women and received no replies using the exact same profile that garnered plenty of interest on other online dating websites. Make of that what you will.
