If you’ve read any of my articles you’ll know I’m all for online dating. That’s why I enjoy writing articles like this BeNaughty review — to identify potentially low-quality sites so you can avoid them altogether.
By far the biggest downside to online dating is the number of scam sites that are popping up. They work hard to fool you into a paid subscription and in some cases, force you to cancel your credit card just to make the payments stop.
It can put a real damper on your online dating and maybe even turn you off it entirely. Rather than taking these risks yourself, I review some of the most mentioned dating websites around. It saves you a whole bunch of time and keeps your credit card safe.
Time to jump into this BeNaughty review.
First, a high-level comparison. If you’ve had an Internet connection in the last decade I’m sure you’ve heard of Adult Friend Finder. They’re arguably the biggest name in online dating sites, which makes them the perfect comparison point.
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.

If you’ve read some of my other dating site reviews, you might notice these scores are identical to a few others. That’s because this site is identical to several other fake dating sites.
Just like those identical sites, my recommendation here is to avoid them at all costs. The second this site loaded I knew exactly what I was in for (spoiler: We didn’t bother paying for a premium account here).
Along with a misleading footer link you can find below, these sites also proudly state they’re part of Together Networks Limited.
On the footer of each site it says “This domain is owned by Together Networks Holdings Limited. This website is operated by Together Networks Limited”.
This is a fact I’d somehow glossed over in previous reviews, but this time I did some quick digging. Sure enough, they own a bunch of identical sites that I’ve already reviewed and so many more.
At least for the ones I’ve reviewed so far, the templates they use are the same and so are the dodgy tactics. I’ve reviewed each of these sites and they were a carbon copy of each other: BeNaughty, IAmNaughty, NaughtyDate and AffairDating.
That’s four cancerous “dating” sites in their network and counting. Since I’m yet to get a single legitimate interaction from any of these sites, I’d call it a day. Nothing to see here.
If you believe the stats on the Together Networks website, they own “238 dating brands and digital communities”. Essentially, they’re a cancerous tumor spreading themselves around the Internet.
Any time you see that brand mentioned on a website, run.
Rather than wasting your time on any of these trash sites, I’d recommend Adult Friend Finder instead. As I mentioned earlier, it’s one of the most popular dating sites around and for a reason.
The profile setup and matching system is simple, the prices are reasonable and you will meet women through it. Better yet, it’s ideal for hookups since that’s the whole point of the site.

Okay, back to the rest of the BeNaughty review.
If our recommendation hasn’t already tipped you off, BeNaughty doesn’t have a lot going for it. However, we give credit where credit is due, so we still found a few nice things to say about an otherwise low-quality site.
The best we can hope for with a dodgy dating site is that they’re obvious about it. Unfortunately for us, all the sites in this network are actually somewhat convincing.
While many others I’ve reviewed have bios that resemble Pornhub video titles, these are different. The bio is either blank (very common on real dating sites) or they read like women have actually written them.
Combine that with the quality user interface and you could be forgiven for falling for this one. At least at face value.
I honestly can’t tell if these photos have been stolen from a real dating website or not. It may even be the case that one of these sites used to be real once upon a time and they’ve retained the data.
Either way, if it weren’t for the other red flags this site raises, I would have signed up for a paid membership to test it.
As we’ll get into below though, not a single one of these users is real. At least not anymore. All you get is spam messages luring you into a premium membership.
The final red flag from their user base is their chosen handles. For most “users” here, the usernames follow the same format. They’re a first and last name with a two-digit number in there somewhere. Here are just a few examples taken from the site:
Unless these women all collaborated on their usernames, I’m calling shenanigans.
Credit where it’s due, the design of this site is great. The template they use is clean, very easy to navigate and loads quickly. It’s everything you want from a modern website and they’ve nailed it.
It’s a shame they’ve delivered such a quality interface on an otherwise garbage website. No doubt they do it as a way of making the site more plausible and it works. How frustrating.
Oh, and remember the sites I mentioned that are from the same company? Their design is pretty much the same:
Remember how I said I like to leave a blank profile sit for a few days to see if I get any spam messages? Yeah, that was the first red flag here.
After just a few days of a completely blank profile, my notifications looked like this:
34 messages, 68 notifications and yes, that gray avatar is where my profile photo would be if I’d added one. 34 women messaging me before I even have a photo — what a stud.
Of course, the moment I try to respond to any of these I’m just taken to the subscription page to hand over my credit card info. Even clicking in the text field to reply sent me straight to the payment page.
As a free member on this site you’re very limited. You can browse the fake profiles, receive spam messages and spam notifications and that’s about it.
There’s nothing else for me to elaborate on here. The whole point of the site is to get your credit card info so they generate fake interest hoping you’ll sign up.
Another good sign a dating website is fake or at least low quality is sponsored ads. Rather than focusing on a quality experience for their users, they’re trying to squeeze ad revenue from you.
Unsurprisingly, BeNaughty has a few ads scattered around the site too. First off, the banner ads.
You’ll see ads like this in the side panel and at the bottom of profile pages mostly. On the upside, at least they aren’t explicit porn or camgirl ads.
The more subtle ad you’ll see on this site lives in the footer. It’s a text link just like the one below and, to me, the wording suggests it’s an internal link. Clicking it will take you to another page on BeNaughty where you can see women interested in your profile. This is not the case.
Whether you click the banner ads or this text link, you’re redirected to Flirt.com. This is another of their dodgy websites and I assume they’re using these links for SEO benefit more than anything.
As with most dating websites, the pricing structure is pretty typical. They operate on a subscription basis that becomes more cost-effective the longer you commit to.
When it comes to fake sites like these, they really want to push you into the three- or six-month subscription. This way they get as much money from you as they can before you realize it’s all garbage.
After doing some more investigating I came across a huge volume of people warning not to pay them. Countless stories of people signing up for a one-day membership only to be charged for a full month.
Many accounts of people saying they signed up for BeNaughty and were simultaneously signed up for a paid subscription to another fake dating site as well. The ended up paying for two subscriptions.
Even worse, in both cases they couldn’t cancel their subscription. They had to cancel their credit card to make the payments stop!
To top it all off, this network very clearly pays people to leave positive reviews. They’re always written in poor English and don’t read anything like a real review.
As an example:
“I am not single here, lots of cool sexy interesting folks in here. And the service is of high quality”
Ugh, what’s wrong with people?
The final stage of this BeNaughty review is covering some frequently asked questions. A quick run-through of the questions we see people asking online.
