When it comes to dating websites, you’ll generally come across two different kinds. Legit, helpful sites and scam sites that pretend to be legit. In the case of this Horny Wife review, things were a little different. To help with your online dating, I spend a lot of time researching, testing and reviewing some of the most talked-about options. Sadly, most of the sites I review are pure trash but that also means I know exactly what to look for. Maybe this site will be different though!
From the very beginning, this site looked like a clear fake. I was seeing porn ads right from the sign-up process and was taken immediately to the subscription page. The design of the site is very dated as well and let’s not even talk about the name of the site.
Before I get into my complete review, let’s take a look at a comparison to put all of this in context. As with any hookup site I review, I’m comparing it to AFF. They’re a major powerhouse in the industry and a trusted name so they’re the ideal candidate.
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.

|Privacy & Safety|
Does this site take proper precautions to safeguard its members, their identity, and their data.
Our opinion of how easily an average person will be able to achieve their dating goals with this site compared to other sites.
Will the time and money spent using this site pay off for an average person based on the opinions and experience of our editors.
While a little cluttered, the site is functional and quite intuitive which makes a difference. Unfortunately, though, it didn’t prove helpful in setting up real dates, as I’ll get into soon. There wasn’t much that I liked about this site or found useful, in fact, it was a pretty big waste of time. I highly recommend that any guy, especially if you’re looking for a MILF, check out AFF instead. It’s where we’ve seen most guys have the best results.
For more specific examples of what we didn’t like, keep reading below.
The modern version of not judging a book by its cover, this site was a quick reminder to keep an open mind. As I mentioned, the initial impression on this site was that I was dealing with another sketchy site. In reality, it seems the site is legit. The users seem to be (predominantly) real and they appear to have active moderators to keep you safe which was really nice. More on that next.
All in all, the site proved not to be a scam but I still wouldn’t recommend spending money on it.
It’s almost a shame I can’t recommend this site because they seem to have the right tools in place. While no website can completely eliminate spammers, HornyWife’s team go out of their way to detect and remove them.
I logged in one day to find this in my inbox. A (presumably) fake account had messaged me and both the user’s account and their message got deleted.
There’s a slight chance the user just deleted it themselves but it seems unlikely. Especially given the username and the fact my profile was set up to show only women. This is a somewhat common tactic, so much so that they even warn you about it!
Just like Passion.com, which is nearly identical, this site provided me with exactly zero dates. Not even any real conversations, just a bunch of “icebreakers” and a “hey” in IM.
Icebreakers are automated messages that are sent out at the request of real users. While I initially thought they were spam (because I received a bunch as soon as I logged into Passion.com), they’re actually a great idea.
Users can set certain parameters and HornyWife will send a message to those who fit within it. For example, if I say I’m looking for straight women between 24 and 32 within 20 miles of me, those women will receive a message. This includes users that set up a new account within those limitations. Rather than having to check back daily for new users, the website will reach out for me which is nice.
I digress. Besides these automated messages, I didn’t receive any messages or replies to mine and just one person responded to instant messaging.
Frustratingly, when I went to take screenshots of conversations for this review, I noticed my messages were now missing. Not deleted, just not there. I now have an inbox filled with nothing but icebreakers.
It seems this side of things might be lacking here in general. Even my instant messenger conversation went missing. Both strange and frustrating. In fairness, you didn’t miss much since the only person that replied said “hey.”
Since the purpose of any business is to make money, we can’t hate on them for this one but I do want to point it out. As a free user, you really can’t do a whole lot. Of all the users on this site, here’s the filtered “Users I can view” list. It’s exactly what it sounds like — a list of profiles I could look at and interact with as a free member.
Beyond this list, I couldn’t view other profiles, send messages or reply to messages (if I received any). Still, you can interact with some people for free so it’s not all bad. When you try to message someone for free, this is all you’re going to see, unfortunately.
The bottom line is, if you’re looking for a dating site to find hookups, create an account on AFF and save yourself the time and frustration. They have a massive user base and have earned themselves a reputation of being one of the most trusted sites in the industry.
Despite being around for decades, AFF frequently updates its design and features. Lots of users still sign up today, which is why you’re likely to meet someone in your area when you use the site. Best of all, you don’t need to shell out any money to take the site for a spin. AFF has a free trial that you can use to find hookups right now.
AFF is one of the top hookup sites in the industry right now. It’s a far cry from sites that are pretty much ghost towns!
Before we get into the finer details, let’s take a look at the positives and negatives of Horny Wife as well.
If you’re ever on a dating site and wondering if it’s legit, a simple way to tell is by looking at the profiles. If they’re all blank or every profile is written in broken English, the answer is probably a no. In the case of this Horny Wife review, the profiles appear to be perfectly legitimate.
You’ll find plenty of examples just like this user where the profile is quite detailed. Since they’re real users actually looking for hookups or some kind of encounter, they want to be specific.
Almost every profile I viewed looked somewhat similar to this one. Of course, there are a few blank ones but that’s the nature of online dating.
The design these sites use is clearly quite dated. Reminiscent of an early Facebook layout, there’s a lot going on.
We have a navigation bar across the top, a separate nav pane down the left, a pane on the right and blocks down the middle. While modern web design has a far better grasp on the user experience, this layout is still functional.
You’ll need to spend a little time getting used to it and digging around the menus but once you’re there, it’s simple.
If live cams are your thing, this site offers a good range of those too. You have two camming options under the “Live Action” menu which are basically member cams and webcam models. After doing some digging around and observing a couple of rooms for a while (it’s a difficult job, I know) here’s what I found.
First off, the member cams appear to be just that. I couldn’t find any evidence that they’re being streamed from another website. The people on cam also interact with the chat in real-time so it’s not a video.
As for the cam models, this seems to be the more professional-level models. The key difference is, when looking at the back end of the cam window, it points to StreamRay, a camming site. These women are, presumably, streaming via StreamRay and HornyWife is just presenting that same stream on their own site.
Just to confirm, I took a quick look at the grid of models. I snagged it just in time — you’ll see CuteAndSexy is blurry on StreamRay because she went offline as I took the screenshot!

Cam models on StreamRay.com
This is very similar to what I saw on Passion.com as well, though their cams were pulling from Cams.com which looks strikingly similar to StreamRay.
Naturally, I went to check that one out too and wouldn’t you know it. . . our good friend CuteAndSexy is there too! In fact, you’ll see a couple of familiar faces there.
The pricing options for Horny Wife are pretty typical for any dating site. You can sign up to their premium service for one, three or six months, and the longer you buy, the cheaper it gets.
While the prices are normal for a legit dating site, I can’t say it offers great value. Since I struggled so hard for any degree of interaction, it’s just not worth the price tag.
As for the benefits you get from this membership, the list is decent, honestly. If there were more interaction, I’d say it’s absolutely worth upgrading.
The only thing I could say is that if you’re in a larger city (NYC) your experience may be a little more positive. Still, I had the same problem on both HornyWife and Passion.com so I wouldn’t expect much to change.
Last but not least, it’s time to run through the most frequently asked questions we see for dating websites. If you have a question that hasn’t been answered, please get in touch!
It’sa hookup website. Identical to Passion.com, it appears to be the real deal. Unfortunately, though, real interactions are hard to come by here.
On the upper right-hand side of the HornyWife.com home page, you’ll find “Member Login.” Click this and enter your email address and password.
Since you’ll struggle to meet anyone through this website, it’s worth looking for better alternatives rather than spending your time here.
As I mentioned above, AFF is always a great choice. Otherwise, go ahead and check out our list of better, more reliable hookup sites and choose something from there.
You can view and interact with a very small number of users with a free account. To broaden your reach though, a paid account is necessary. That said, I’ve found the number of active users to be lacking so I wouldn’t recommend paying for it.
Deleting your account on this site is surprisingly simple, just follow these steps:
Pricing for their Gold membership is as below. As usual, the longer you sign up for, the cheaper it gets per month.
[US pricing unavailable from Canada]
While my initial suspicion was a no, it turns out this website is legitimate. Unfortunately though, interaction is really lacking so the chances of getting a date from this site are slim.
Going by my experience, no it doesn’t. You may have better luck if you live in a major city somewhere but otherwise, it’s very quiet. Honestly, that shouldn’t come as a surprise when we’re talking about a website called Horny Wife!
With a Gold membership, you can choose to message users from their profiles or send them an Instant Message. I found the interface for both to be a little confusing and buggy which was frustrating. All in all, it doesn’t really matter though since it’s unlikely you’ll find lengthy conversations on here at all.
Click on “Search” in the menu bar and you’ll find a dropdown menu of different search categories.
