Our AdultSpace review reveals whether this online dating website is any good for organizing hookups or just another waste of time. AdultSpace is marketed as an online space for adults to connect, flirt, chat and arrange to meet up. It doesn’t pull any punches, so would appear to be perfect for guys searching for some no-strings fun with beautiful women.
Sadly, a lot of these websites fail to deliver an enjoyable experience. A large majority of them are packed with bots, scammers and fake profiles. Put simply, they’re a waste of time. That’s why I was so keen to complete this review of AdultSpace.com review for you. I want to know if it’s a legit website that’s worth using to find casual sex partners.
To find out how AdultSpace.com compares to the best hookup sites and aps, read on.
If you’re not too fussed about learning how every aspect of this site works, I have created a basic summary for you below. It rates AdultSpace out of 10 for the most important aspects of online dating. To create some context, I have added a direct comparison to AFF – the hookup website that we rate as the absolute greatest for organizing no-strings fun for most guys based on our experience.
Our team rates each site objectively based on many hours of independent research, the features each site offers, and how it compares with other sites. The ratings are the opinion of our editors and their extensive experience.

Will the time and money spent using this site pay off for an average person based on the opinions and experience of our editors.
After spending a lot of time using AdultSpace we have to recommend that you avoid it completely and check out another site. As you will see in more detail below, the chances that most men will find any real women that respond is very low. We’ve had much better results with other options out there, especially AFF, which makes it impossible for us to suggest even trying AdultSpace.com after this review.
Do yourself a favor and try something else! If you’re not yet convinced read on to find out the details.
Upon creating an account at adultspace.com, I was immediately redirected to fuckbook.com. It’s relatively common for hookup websites to buy a handful of URLs, create several brands that target different demographics, then redirect all users to its main service after they sign up.
We reviewed FuckBook a while ago, but I decided to put it through its paces again in this review to see if there have been any changes. Here were my main findings.
Once you log in to the website, you’ll be presented with a feed of recent status updates from women. These are mostly dirty pictures. Most of these attract numerous comments within a few minutes of being uploaded. You can comment as well.
This creates a first impression that the website is bustling with activity. That’s because this feed of updates is automatically set to “popular,” meaning it is only showing the posts with the most engagement. If you see a woman you like, you can add her as a friend. They’ll need to accept your request for it to be confirmed. It is possible to switch this feed so that it only shows updates from your ‘friends’.
As soon as I set up an account and navigated to the ‘Matches’ tab, I was surprised to see that there were already 52 female profiles from my local city there, even though I’d only been a member for a few minutes and hadn’t messaged anyone.
This figure continued to grow as the test continued. These women hadn’t actively “matched” with me. More likely, their profile matches what I told AdultSpace I was looking for.
AdultSpace’s Icebreaker feature could automatically match you with women. You’ll be asked if you want to turn this on after you’ve registered an account. If you do so, the site will send automated profile views, Icebreaker messages and friend requests on your behalf. If you don’t, you won’t receive any Icebreaker actions nor have any sent on your behalf.
The site doesn’t reveal how many messages are sent via Icebreaker. It does state that Icebreaker actions will only be sent to and from active users who have logged in within the last four months and match at least one of your preferences. I chose to keep Icebreaker turned off because I wanted to communicate with real women, not automated messages.
I sent 50 messages to women based in and around Ohio, United States. Almost all of the women I messaged were labelled as online or recently online. Even so, I only received one reply to my messages. That conversation fizzled out pretty quickly too.
I sent friend requests to everyone who I messaged, but only that same one woman accepted it. Three women had viewed my profile within a week of me signing up to the site (and only two from Ohio).
So, even though AdultSpace would appear to be the hive of dirty adult activity, that wasn’t the case when I tried to contact people. It makes me wonder how much engagement on this website is automated through the Icebreaker feature.
Adult Space does a great job at looking like a thriving hookup website. However, AFF is the real deal. Wherever in the world we look for hookups on this website, it delivers. This is the original hookup website – having launched back in the early 2000s – and it remains your best option for finding a quick and easy casual encounter.
It has a huge active user base across the globe. Most of them are actively looking for casual sex or a no-strings relationship. It’s awesome. There’s no reason to waste time trying to wade through all these automated messages and inactive profiles to make AdultSpace work for you when you can use AFF instead.
Best of all, it’s currently offering a free trial to all new users. That means there has never been a better time to create a profile there.
Here’s what we loved and hated about Adult Space:
The profiles on AdultSpace have a clean design, with your most recently added photos being automatically uploaded to your cover photo. Below your main profile photo, you’ll see a user’s most important details: their gender, age, location, who they’re looking for and whether they use Icebreaker. Scroll down and you’ll find a feed of their most recent photos and status updates.
There are loads of attractive female profiles to browse through, although getting them to reply to you is likely to be difficult.
This website has a lot of unique aesthetic features that we noticed during our review of Adultspace that I’d love to see other online dating websites take inspiration from. The feed of recent status updates is interesting. The friends list on the right-hand sidebar makes it easy to find someone to message, especially given the fact it shows who is currently online. The cover photo collage of a user’s most recent images looks great and the huge photos are very engaging. After all, pictures are the most important part of online dating.
The search filter system, however, is less intuitive than other online dating websites, and it’s not immediately clear what the ‘matches’ tab represents. But overall the website has a great design.
You won’t be able to send or reply to any messages until you register for a paid account. Once you sign up for premium membership, you’ll be able to send unlimited messages to an unlimited number of members. You can send text, emojis and images via instant message.
A list of your matches and friends appears on the right-hand side of the website. You’ll see when these people are online, and you’ll be able to click on their username to start a chat.
There are good and bad points to the Icebreaker feature. On one hand, it allows you to get in contact with other members without you having to do anything. On the other, it could be used to contact members you have no interest in – and there’s every chance that most of the messages you receive are automated too.
With a free profile, you can view other profiles but won’t be able to send messages. Our Adultspace review that was limited to the free option didn’t allow us to accomplish much.
There are plenty of pornographic banner adverts dotted around the website in the header and sidebars.
You can pay monthly or quarterly for an AdultSpace membership. With a quarterly membership, you’ll pay 50% less per month.
The pricing is:
Monthly: $29.95 every 30 days
Quarterly: $44.85 every 90 days
These payments will automatically recur until you cancel your membership.
Enter your email address and password into the boxes on the top right hand corner of the home page.
Click the “Search” tab on the main navigation at the top of the screen. You can search for men, women or couples.
You can also sort your results by location, by who’s recently online and who’s new to the site. The final two options display profiles from all over the world. So they’re pretty useless if you’re using the website to find someone to hook up with.
There’s an advanced search feature, which lets you filter by age, location and other demographics. You can search for photos and status updates too if you prefer.
On a member’s profile, click “Start Chat.” A chat box will then appear at the bottom of the screen. If their username appears in the right-hand sidebar, you can click this and a chat box will appear.
See our guide on the best hookup apps and websites for a full list of recommended alternatives to AdultSpace.
Click the menu symbol in the top left of the screen. Click “My Account” on the menu.
Then, you’ll see the “Delete My Account” option in the top right hand of the page.
Enter the Captcha number provided, then click the big red “Delete My Profile” button.
When you delete your account using the instructions above, your membership will automatically be canceled.
You can pay $29.95 per month or $44.85 per quarter. Payments will recur until you cancel.
This appears to be a legitimate hookup website. However, the members seem to be mostly unresponsive.
However, it needs to be highlighted that a lot of messages are being automated through the website’s Icebreaker system. It’s not made immediately obvious what this feature is, so it may be tricking a lot of users into thinking they’re receiving messages, friend requests and profile views from legitimate women.
Having said that, a lot of scammy websites operate a similar automated messaging system without giving you the option to turn it off.
It would be too harsh to call this website a scam. Other than the ‘Icebreaker’ messages, which you have to opt in to, there are no attempts made to deceive you. There’s no Adult Space scam, although I wouldn’t recommend you use this website to find a hookup either.
