Our Review

Adam4Adam is a gay online dating website for mainly casual and sexual encounters. A4A Network launched it in 2003, and it claims to be a pioneer in the online gay dating community.

According to the administrators and Hitwise (a marketing company), the site has already acquired over 10 million members since its launch. It is known for having completely free features, thanks to revenue from ads, pay-per-view adult movies, donations, and other income generating projects. 

The site caters to a broad demographic, accepting all kinds of men from the gay community. Whether you are gay, bisexual, metrosexual, a twink, or a closet one, you are welcome to join. Whatever your age, ethnicity, or cultural background is, you can register for an account.

Signing Up

Adam4Adam Registration
  • Free users have full access to the site
  • Signing up is a two-way process
  • You can use both the full site and the app to register
  • Photos need to be reviewed by their support team
  • You need to certify that you are at least 8 years old before you can join
  • There is an email verification process which isn't necessary

Setting up an account for Adam4Adam involves two simple steps. 

First, you need to provide your desired username, a valid email address, and an effective password. You need to tick the box saying that you agree with the terms and conditions of the site, and you testify that you are at least 18 years old.

Next, you need to complete some essential parts of your profile by providing your vitals (age and gender preference), location, and a display photo. You likewise need to verify your application by checking the captcha box, and three other boxes certifying again your age, your agreement to the terms and conditions, and your consent to having 120 free credits and access to the adam4adamlive video chat.

There is an email verification implemented, but it isn't required. You can use your account and interact with others on the website without ever having to confirm your email.

Making Contact

Adam4Adam Search Filters
  • Contacting is via free search and contact recommendation
  • You can send a Smile if you're not yet ready to chat with others
  • Conversations inactive for more than 10 days get immediately deleted
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone

Adam4Adam has a very comprehensive list of search filters. You can either be too specific (if you're very particular about your standards) or too general (if you're one who likes being surprised). As a free user, you are entitled to at least three saved searches. If you want more, 10 to be exact, you need to avail of the premium membership.

As to inactive conversations, basic members only have a limit of 10 days to keep their connections before they get deleted entirely. Premium members, on the other hand, have a maximum of 30 days. Free users can keep 20 conversations (active or inactive) in their Saved folder while VIPs can keep 200 messages.

Profile Quality

Adam4Adam Profile
  • Members can hide their last profile visit from anyone
  • There is an option to create a secondary "Visitor" profile when traveling
  • No security measures to ensure that all profiles are authentic
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free

Your profile composes of your essential details such as physical appearance, sexual orientation, relationship status, and lifestyle. It also has your location right under your username. 

Beneath the set of bullets is an about me section and a description of your profession. There is also a message box so that anyone can write their letter to you. 

You have to upload two photos: your Primary photo, which cannot be private, and your Primary App Photo. 

If your Primary photo is not G-rated, the Primary App photo can be used to replace it in the native app. The Primary App photo should be G-rated and absolutely cannot show any parts of your underwear, butt, or genitals.

However, as we browse through most of the profiles, it seems like this rule is not being followed both by the members and the administrators. We have seen a lot of butts and genitals as display photos during our test.

Note that while you have your "Home" profile, you also have the option to create a "Visitor" profile tailored to a specific city you're visiting.

App

Adam4Adam App Profile
  • Available both as a mobile app and a mobile-optimized browser
  • Downloadable both on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store
  • Both stores offer in-app purchases, particularly the VIP membership
  • App is available in different languages (e.g., English, Arabic, Russian, German, etc.)
  • Has over 500,000 installs on the Google Play Store
  • App's features are fewer compared to that of the website version
  • The mobile version is the one that has the same features as the full desktop version
  • App's design is not that appealing, especially to the younger generation

Adam4Adam's mobile app is lacking both in functions and design. They seem to have cut down half of the special features that made Adam4Adam unique. Aesthetically, directly translating the desktop website to mobile isn't always a good thing. The buttons are hard to press since they're jam-packed into the tiny phone screen.

However, what Adam4Adam lacks in the app, they make up for in the mobile browser. Most of the features are in the mobile version (not the app), the design looks more streamlined, and it's overall a better experience. 

If you're going to use Adam4Adam on your phone, might as well use the mobile version instead of the mobile app to save phone storage.

Real Life Review

"My favorite thing about the app is that I can easily create a second "Visitor" profile whenever I'm traveling, unlike other dating apps that require you to make a completely different account and pay again. It has been very convenient for me when I want to meet with other guys in a different country. It's a very entertaining app because even when I get bored talking to guys, I can just check out live cams and watch quietly. The one thing I think it could improve on is adding detail about whether you're a top, bottom, or vers." - Male Chef (29)

Design and Usability

The overall design of the website leaves much to be desired even though we know that for an adult dating site, this is the least of Adam4Adam's priorities. 

Ads abound throughout the page, and most of them are incredibly pornographic. The functions are easy to spot, but they could probably be arranged better. The layout of individual profiles is not as sophisticated as other sites because all your personal details are just shown in plain text without any structure whatsoever.

Adam4Adam Cost
Payment Options
  • Credit Card

Most of the features are available for free on Adam4Adam because they receive donations and advertisement revenues from pay-per-view porn websites and companies that offer erection enhancement drugs.

All transactions on your credit card are secure and discreet. Charges will appear as SEGPAY.COM@A4A Network on your cardholder statement to protect your privacy. Your subscription is automatically renewed unless you choose "Cancel Auto-rebill" on the premium page. Refunds are only available within the first 14 days of the transaction.

Special Features

Adam4Adam boasts plenty of unique features that unabashedly suit its very sexual purpose. There are movies to see, sex toys to buy, and out-of-town hook-ups to plan, so read on to know more about them.

Live Cams

With options such as Adam4AdamLIVE, Adam4CAMS, and A4ALIVE, you can watch plenty of online members on their live streams or hit them up to start video chatting. However, you have to create a different account for each of these channels, and there's a fee to view the videos in their entirety. 

Sex Shop

Adam4Adam also has its own online shop where guys can buy sex toys and other paraphernalia.

Movies

Members can watch pornographic movies on Adam4Adam.tv in three different ways. 

In "Pay-per-minute," you have to purchase a time package and as the movie plays, time is deducted from your account. 

In "Rentals," you can rent a movie for 48 hours and watch it as many times as you like during that period. 

For "Downloads," you can "own" the movie for seven days, 30 days, or for good. Different charges apply.

Underwear Club

The Adam4Adam Monthly Underwear Club is a fun little activity where Adam4Adam sends designer underwear every month starting at 10 USD for your first month. It's that simple. They will choose from a curation of international designer brands and send you a pair of underwear in your size and preferred style.

Plan a Trip

You can announce to the other guys where you'll be traveling next. This feature makes it easy for you to give out your itinerary and plan your hookups. 

Party Ad

There's a particular page on the website where you can create a party or announce an event. It is public and free for everyone to use. The page can only be used to advertise small private parties. Your announcement will be displayed 30 days before the event and removed two days after.

Health Resources

Adam4Adam has prepared a handy list of health counselors who have accounts on the site. The list also contains websites for questions about STDs, clinics and testing sites, harm reduction for methamphetamine users, and different US helplines.

Editors Conclusion

Chris Pleines
Don't be fooled: Adam4Adam is a sex-first website. You could use the site to meet someone serious and find a romantic relationship, but it would be difficult. Its functions and overall design encourages hook-ups more than anything. If that's your main purpose, then lucky you, you've come to the right place. There are so many features to use and events to participate in: be it watching a live cam, shopping for sex toys, joining an underwear club, or hiring an escort. Sign up for free and interact with like-minded gay guys for a hot adventure.
