2021 RedHotPie Review: What We Found After Months of Use

RedHotPie landing page

We’re now deep in the Internet of Things. In fact, it’s like almost everyone meets online these days. The Internet has helped bring people together like never before. In fact, it can now even help you get laid. Yeah, there are websites that can make that happen. However, these sites are few and far between. Fortunately for you, you’ve got guys like us looking out for you. I created this RedHotPie review so I can make things a bit easier for you.

It’s generally a bad idea to invest in things that won’t really help you out in the long run. This is why I decided to take the time to review RedHotPie and see what they have in store for you. I wanted to see whether this website could get you a legit hookup. As always, I tried to look at it from every angle possible and here’s what I came up with.

How we reviewed RedHotPie
To make sure all the sites showcased on this platform are equally reviewed, first we’ll use the site’s free version (if it’s something they offer, that is) and see what we can do with it. The main goal here is to determine whether you can hook up with another member using the unpaid version of the site.

I’ll use this account for a few days or until I experience all the free features. Once we’re satisfied we’ve seen everything it has to offer, we upgrade to a paid account and then use that.

When using the free account, I won’t upload a profile picture nor will write a description, or anything like that. I leave the new profile totally blank so that I can see whether the site will send me spam messages. Why do I think that messages sent to an un-optimized profile are spam? Well, I mean, how many people out there really want to hook up with a person they know nothing about or haven’t even seen? Not many, I’m sure.

Once the profile has sat there blank for a couple of days, I’ll then proceed with adding both a profile picture and a brief description of myself. Once I’ve optimized the profile a bit, I’ll start using it as I would any other dating app. I usually spend a lot of time on the site so that I can find out exactly what it has to offer.

The Full RedHotPie Review: Is It For You?

Upon login

In this article, I’m going to highlight everything you should know about RedHotPie.com. You’ll also find a short comparison between this site and Adult FriendFinder. Why? Because Adult FriendFinder, we’ve found, is an incredibly dependable and reliable dating site and it’s somewhat of the gold standard we use to compare other sites to.

Anyway, if you happen to be a numbers guy then we’ve got that as well too. Here’s how RedHotPie ranks up.

Our Recommendation

The RedHotPie site generally looks really good at first glance. As far as first impressions go, it does impress from the onset. In fact, the homepage alone just makes you feel like you can definitely score after some time.

As soon as I registered and saw how everything was laid out, I immediately started feeling right at home. It doesn’t look scammy at all and it has a clean, professional and well-thought-out overall design. I didn’t even receive any spam!

There is one caveat, though: there’s no one here!

But first, the (slightly) good news…

No spam messages

For starters, just like with most other dating or hookup sites, there’s not a lot you can do on a free membership. RedHotPie’s free account is the “Guest Membership.”  That being said, at least spam messages are one thing you won’t have to contend with. This is actually really refreshing considering how many other sites have taken to filling their members’ inboxes with spam messages.

Sending messages, unfortunately, is something only premium members can do. As a Guest Member, you can only send messages to your matches. Of which, once you send the first one, the next one will initiate an upgrade prompt. You’ll be asked to upgrade if you want to send another one. When you upgrade to “Premium,” you get 10 chats daily.

A message with no reply

To get matches, you can go to the “Discover” or “Prospect” page and start swiping. Or you can get the attention of other members by sending out flirts. Also, you can block disrespectful members from viewing your profile and contacting you by reporting them to the admin.

Contacting other members is pretty straightforward

There are many different ways you can contact other members on the site. You can flirt, text chat, webchat or use a simple messaging style. Though if you’re using a Guest Membership, you only get one message per member, and that’s only with a member you’ve matched with.

Simple messaging might be the easiest and most effective way out of all of them. It’s similar to the way you’d send an email or WhatsApp text. Also, you can see your message status, whether it’s been opened already or unread. Webchat, on the other hand, gives you the ability to have virtual face-to-face conversations with other members.

You can also jump into Chat Rooms and have live text chats with other members. In this area, you can both receive and send instant messages. It works similar to the way Facebook’s Messenger app works. If you want to enter a chat room, you’ll need an Adobe Flash plug-in. But since that no longer works, there was no real way to test this feature.

Chatrooms

But then again, looks like hardly anyone is online anyway.

If at any point you don’t feel like receiving messages, you can adjust your settings by activating the lock feature. If later on you feel like you want to start receiving messages again, unlock the lock feature and your messages will start rolling in once again. Sadly, only paying members can take full advantage of all the contacting features.

Most member profiles look legit

But then again, looks can be deceiving. At first glance, the women you’ll see on RedHotPie.com look like real women. There’s a variety of women whose looks range from average to pretty hot. But nearly none of the photos I saw seemed like they were pulled from some fashion magazine.

Attractive users that don't look fake

Here’s the thing about dating sites: it can be hard to tell if the users are legit if you don’t actually talk to any of them. Since I got ZERO replies, I wasn’t able to see if any of these profiles are legit.

Take this profile, for example:

Sample profile that looks suspicious

At first glance, this looks like a real person. But when you look at her preferences right at the top, she’s searching for men aged 18-99. That’s a HUGE range, even if you’re extremely open-minded. On top of that, her “About Me” section seems rushed and not at all interesting. I’ve seen basic Tinder profiles with more thought-provoking bios!

It has some special features in case you’re getting bored

RedHotPie really doesn’t want their users to get bored it seems. The platform has some interesting features even if no one replies to your messages:

Amateur Pics. Here you can browse naughty pictures posted by other members. If you’re feeling showy and confident, you can post your own as well. In fact, you can even end up winning a cash prize if your photo gets chosen.

Amateur pics
Nearby. You can use the app to find members located in your area. This can be done by adjusting your privacy settings to “nearby,” “vicinity” and “accurate.” Accurate members will see your location when you appear on their search results. Vicinity will just inform members that you’re in the area, while Nearby only displays your registered location (and not the current one).

Date Finder. It’s like an advanced filter where you can input all your preferences and RedHotPie will find matches for you.

Travel Plan/Date Away. If you’re planning on traveling and meeting other members when you arrive at your destination, you can schedule your dates by using this feature.

Why I think Adult FriendFinder is better

The bottom line? Scoring on RedHotPie is next to impossible. I messaged dozens of women (more than the usual 50 for my reviews) and still got ZERO replies. This is why I think you’re better off spending your time on .

For one, Adult FriendFinder is a tried, tested and battle-ready hookup platform that has millions of active subscribers. RedHotPie, on the other hand, still just has a few hundred thousand or so (with new members trickling in every few weeks). Furthermore, as much as Red Hot Pie member profiles look legit from the onset, Adult FriendFinder member profiles have all been scanned by the admin to ensure both catfish and scammers are kept at bay.

Secondly, the people on Adult FriendFinder are way more responsive and most of them are looking to hook up and meet as fast as they possibly can. Yes, just like with any other dating website, members can ghost you when they lose interest. However, at least most times you’re sure you’re communicating and interacting with real people.

So if you’re looking to spend time on a site where you have great odds of getting laid, then you should go the Adult FriendFinder route.

Pros and Cons From Our Review of RedHotPie

During my short stint on RedHotPie.com, I found some good and bad. Here’s what I came up with

Positives
Negatives
  • Good design
  • Has an app version available
  • Has many interesting special paid features
  • No active members
  • The profiles look a little fishy
  • Kind of on the expensive side

Great overall design with no annoying features

RedHotPie not only has nice special features, but it provides members with a lot of functionality as well. At first glance, the homepage might look overwhelming seeing as how there’s a lot going on in one page. However, after using the platform for a bit you’ll definitely start getting used to it.

Great site design

Although, the app version has a much less complicated overall layout compared to the site itself. It’s way easier to navigate because all the functionalities have been separated into two groups for every page. As far as loading time is concerned, both the app and site have medium speed responses.

Is RedHotPie expensive?

Honestly speaking, paid membership on RedHotPie doesn’t come cheap. They offer 3 membership packages: Platinum, Premium Plus and Premium.

RedHotPie: Frequently Asked Questions

We’re now at the end of our review. However, before I wrap things up completely, I’ll look at some frequently asked questions about RedHotPie.

What is RedHotPie.com?

RedHotPie is a hookup website that caters to basically everyone: straight, gay, transgender, bisexual and so on. The site, which also has an app, is mainly for groups, couples, women and men looking for hookups.

Sadly, there aren’t enough responsive people on the site to make me recommend it.

How do you register on Red Hot Pie?

RedHotPie has a pretty straightforward registration process. All you need to get started is a linked Facebook account or email. Once you’ve successfully filled out all the information needed, you’ll get a verification email that’ll allow you to get started on a guest membership.

How to create an account

Can you send free texts/messages on RedHotPie?

Not really. You can only send messages to members you’ve matched with, and even those are limited to only one message per person. The site reserves messages for paid members.

How much does a paid Red Hot Pie cost?

Red Hot Pie has three subscription options:

Premium:

1 Month: $26.03

3 Months: $12.50/month ($37.50)

6 Months: $8.75/month ($52.50)

12 Months: $6.33/month ($75.96)

Premium Plus:

1 Month: $36.00/month

3 Months: $17.50/month ($52.50)

6 Months: $12.52/month ($75.12)

12 Months: $8.96/month ($107.52)

Platinum:

1 Month: $52.75/month

6 Months: $18.33/month ($109.98)

12 Months: $12.92/month ($155.04)

Is RedHotPie legit?

The verdict is still out on this one. On the one hand, RedHotPie doesn’t seem like an outright scam. I didn’t get charged extra even after my subscription has expired. However, it looks like there are hardly any users on the app. On top of that, some profiles look suspicious. I say opt for a more credible site instead.
