The parent company (Various, Inc.) had difficulty finding venture capital due to the adult nature of its business.[5] In December 2007, the company was sold to the Penthouse Media Group for $500 million.[6][7] Penthouse later changed its name to FriendFinder Networks.[8] In October 2009, as part of an arrangement with The Kluger Agency, musician Flo Rida released a music video for his song "Touch Me" via Adult FriendFinder. A representative of the agency stated that it was "always great to combine a very sexy high octane record with a very sexy brand.[9]
Recently I saw an ad on TV with a testimonial from some couple that got married after having met on a dating site. It reminded me of how blessed I am to have met my wife as a DIRECT RESULT OF one of your sites. It also occurred to me that as I approach my 5th wedding anniversary in February, I have yet to officially let your organization know about our success. I wanted to share them with you.
For those looking for a hookup instead of a date or relationship, BeNaughty is a great alternative to the adult section of Yahoo! Personals. The site takes your location, age, and interests into consideration when pairing you with frisky singles. BeNaughty also uses SSL encryption technology and a profile verification system to ensure your information is protected and every member is a real-life person.
Your search features are lousy. I would like very much to be able to search for a man within 50 miles who is in my age range. Why can't I do that? The men that you put on my recommendation list almost never even live in my city, which was a specification I provided. Most of them are from other cities and some of them are even from other states! And when you put me on their lists, I get mail from a bunch of guys who don’t live anywhere near me and it’s a complete waste of time. I think when you put just a picture and nothing else, especially the city and state they live in, there is no way we can tell if we are interested without opening the person’s entire profile and seeing where they live. You’re having us only judge them by their looks alone, and that is not how I judge a man. What a waste of time.

Adult FriendFinder has been accused of committing systematic billing fraud.[15] According to the complaints filed, the company has a practice of continuing to bill customers even after they have cancelled their service. Former employees of the company have claimed that this is their standard policy and not the result of errors. These employees have stated that the majority of customers do not notice the charges for many months.[16][better source needed] As of October 2014, hundreds of civil cases have been filed against the company and a criminal indictment was made by the Federal Trade Commission against the company.[17] In 2007, Adult FriendFinder settled with the Federal Trade Commission over allegations that the company had used malware to generate explicit pop-up ads for the service on computers without user consent.[18]

Most things about this site are pretty good and standard. But there are a couple of issues I think need to be addressed. I have noticed that I just cannot send certain messages, or I cannot send messages at all, to certain people. Pof should, in no way, get to decide, or even provide provisions to not allow people to just message certain people. Just like in real life, people surprise you and turn out to not be what you expected and possibly someone you turn out to be interested in. The feature that prevents you from messaging certain people because ‘you’re not what they’re looking for’ should be removed. The people responsible for controlling certain aspects of this app do not have any interest in your personal endeavors and should not restrict the parameters of those endeavors as they are not aware of anything that pertains to a reasonable decision to act on anything more than the basics. You’re not Cupid’s or match makers.. you’re a bunch of people who know software enough to have that job. Therefore none of your decisions should play into any kind of restrictions placed on me or any other user. You’re providing a service. What good is your service when it prevents people from doing what they reasonably expected they could? Not good is the answer.

I do NOT want my chemistry details to be on my profile! You did not state that it would show and we would not have a choice when we filled it out. I thought it was only a way for you to help find the right person for us, and not that everyone would be able to see it. Why would anybody want me when they can see on that chemistry profile that I have “a problem with self-control”? Why in the world would you want to post something negative when you’re supposed to be trying to help us find someone?
As I said, I haven’t used the platform in a matter of years - but the sentimental value of this part of the website is so high for me that it’s painful to see this happen. I still vividly remember the moment I saw her post and felt such a surge of excitement - and an even greater one when she emailed me back. So to see this disappear has me bummed out for no rational reason at all. Sorry if that doesn’t do anything for the question. I just needed to get that out.
