This Heated Affairs review is all about getting to know the so-called world’s largest cheating website. The site is marketed directly towards horny adulterous wives and the men who want to sleep with them. This website pulls no punches! So if you want to sleep with a married woman, HeatedAffairs is your one-stop shop for that. Or so its home page would suggest, anyway.
The problem is: we’ve come across a lot of steamy online dating websites that promise the world, only to deliver nothing but a waste of your time. A lot of these websites force you to pay for a premium membership before you can message other members.
That’s why I thought it was important that in our Heated Affairs app review that we put it through its paces, and test out how easy it is to organize a hookup on this website. Below, you find a detailed account of what happened when I put the site through our intense testing process.

After doing a full review of Heated Affairs we can away with a fairly positive impression. There were are a lot of people using it and we were able to see some pretty solid results, especially compared to a lot of other sites out there. After spending more time on the site we realized it’s pretty much just another version of Adult FriendFinder, which we’ve seen a lot of success using and highly recommend.
Essentially, the Heated Affairs app is a different brand that leverages the same people and profiles as Adult FriendFinder. For most guys, it’s the best option we’ve seen if you’re just looking for hookups.
It’s immediately clear that Heated Affairs has a large, active and dirty-minded community. Once you create an account, you’ll be greeted by the website’s main dashboard. This features a list of recent status updates. Most of these updates are explicit photos and videos that members have taken of themselves and/or their partners. Most updates have plenty of comments left on them, and you can choose to leave one too.
Heated Affairs has a sizable community of single women, married women and couples looking to add a third wheel. The search filter allows you to choose who you want to engage with. So it’s possible to only see married women in your search results, for example.
I sent messages to women in each of the three categories listed above, based in Ohio, United States. (We always use this region when testing online dating websites, so we can ensure a fair comparison between them). Out of the 50 women I messaged, I received nine replies. A total of 25 women had viewed my profile within my seven days on the website.
This was with a Gold membership ($39.95/month). With this account, only paying female members can message you back (Unlike men, women can access Heated Affairs for free).
If I had upgraded to a “Standard Accounts” membership, I may have received even more replies from non-paying members. This membership tier costs an additional $24.95 per month. So, for a pay-monthly account, that’s $64.90 per month.
A lot of the accounts I messaged were deactivated shortly after I got in contact. That suggests that HeatedAffairs has an issue with fake accounts, although it’s also clear that the website is proactive about removing them.
When choosing 50 women, I filtered my search results leniently, so women (and couples) of all ages would appear, provided they were based within 100 miles of Columbus, Ohio. I then ordered my search results by “last online.” This would create an accurate impression of the most active female users of Heated Affairs. It would also increase my odds of getting replies.
The majority of women who popped in my search results were over 40. Roughly one in five were couples’ accounts. If this is the demographic you’d most like to connect with, you’ll love Heated Affairs.
There are plenty of women under 30 registered to the website to speak to, although far less who had logged in within seven days.
With a Gold membership, you’ll be able to access Heated Affairs’ live cam streaming service. Whenever I logged into the website, there were hundreds of women available to connect with. You can chat with any of them using the live chat function, although you’ll have to pay extra for a private session.
You can choose to watch live cams from other users or from cam models. Below are a few options if you want to check out users:
Users on webcams may sometimes respond, but it’s pretty rare. However, it looks like they can see your messages and it’s a live webcam feed.
For the live cam models, on the other hand, you’ll likely be watching a stream from another cam site.
I was able to engage in some sexually-charged conversations with most of the nine women who replied to my opening message. I didn’t manage to swap contact details with any of them, but this was usually through no fault of my own. I would imagine it’s more than possible to arrange a hookup on his website if you’re genuinely looking to do so.
As you can see, I personally have no idea how to go about arranging a meet-up with a swinger couple.
If you’re genuinely experienced in this scene, I imagine you may have more luck tempting couples to swap contact details.
Heated Affairs may be part of the Adult FriendFinder network, but when you compare the two websites, the original is the best in our experience. Whereas Heated Affairs is a niche website for users looking to hook up outside of their marriage, Adult FriendFinder has a broader user base. You can find plenty of users who are also into cheating, but you’ll also find singles, couples, swingers and more. It’s, therefore, the better choice if you want to date a wider variety of women (or if you don’t know exactly what you want yet).
The biggest difference of all between the two websites? Adult FriendFinder is currently running a free trial. So, it makes perfect sense to register an account there first.
Here’s a summary of Heated Affairs’ main advantages and disadvantages.
HeatedAffairs prompts you to create an extensive profile. As well as adding a wealth of personal information, you can create status updates that others can comment on, just as you would on social media. These status updates appear in the activity feed of others, so it would appear to be a good way to grab the attention of other users.
A lot of the active users do this regularly, posting explicit photos in order to attract potential suitors to message them. You can add other users’ as friends in order to subscribe to their status updates.
You’re prompted to list your kinks on your profile, plus what you’re looking for in a partner. This data is used to create a “compatibility chart” on other member’s profiles when you visit them. They will see their compatibility with you when they visit your profile.
Heated Affairs makes it simple to create a couple’s profile if you’re hunting for a hookup together.
Before you message a woman, make sure to look for a gold crown logo at the top of her profile. If she doesn’t have one, she won’t be able to reply to your message (unless you have a “Standard Accounts” membership).
In many ways, HeatedAffairs.com is designed more like a social media platform than an online dating website. The design brings back memories of Facebook circa 2008. Still, it’s easy to navigate especially when you consider how much there is to see and do.
Heated Affairs allows you to send an instant message to members who are currently online, or a standard mail message if they’re not. Webcam models have an instant message feature on their live stream.
Remember though: non-paying female members won’t be able to reply to you unless you have “Standard Contacts” membership. The mail message feature allows you to send pictures, “flirts” or virtual gifts. Alternatively, you can leave comments on their photos.
If you’re male, you can’t even enter the website without paying for a membership!
A few adverts appear in the sidebar on other members’ profiles or on the main dashboard. They’re nowhere near as intrusive on the ads on most hookup sites though.
HeatedAffairs.com offers a Gold Account and a “Standards Contacts” feature, which you buy as an add-on.
A Gold Account grants you full access to the website.
The “Standard Contacts” feature allows non-paying female members to view your profile and reply to your messages.
It costs an additional $24.95 for one month, $35.85 for three months or $107.40 for 12 months.

Click the “log in” button at the top of the home page, then enter your username and password.
Click the “Search” button in the website’s main navigation at the top of the screen, then select an option. There are plenty to choose from. I used the “Members Near Me” option for our review. You might prefer the “Advanced Search” or “Kink Search” features.
