Users Give Ashley Madison: 4 Stars 4 Stars 4 Stars 4 Stars 4 Stars
Ashley Madison is the only adult dating site I know of that purchases television advertising. Usually it’s late night ads but the fact that they’re buying time in the first place tells you they’re making money and they’re working hard to convince their customers that this is more than some smutty website. That benefits you significantly because it means that the women that show up at Ashley Madison are there to get it on and the results in the member’s area show that to be true. The site features a different pricing model from most that can be off putting but otherwise it’s exceptionally well done and stuffed with quality women to play with, as you’ll soon read about. The Answer to the question: Does Ashley Madison Work is YES!


The Five Point Test – Ashley Madison Review

1) Real Versus Fake/Scamming Members On Ashley Madison

They probably exist on Ashley Madison but I’ve genuinely never come across a profile that looks or feels fake in any way. Sometimes the women don’t write nearly enough but that’s more a sign of their lack of commitment to an affair, not the fact that they’re fakes. All the pictures look totally genuine and the women range from modest in their profile shots to showing off lots of flesh.

The only thing I would say is that Ashley Madison is unquestionably the most famous affairs site online, thanks in large part to the TV ads and the fact that it’s been featured on countless talk shows, blogs, magazines, and more. In short, this is the site that is usually named when someone wants to get on a soap box about how the internet is destroying relationships. For that reason they could theoretically have more private investigators in the ranks, but I’ve never seen any evidence that would back that up so I see no reason to be worried about it. Ashley Madison is NOT a scam!

2) Size of the Membership Base On Ashley Madison

Thanks to the wonder of television advertising and the endless stream of press Ashley Madison has built an impressive membership base. The membership total comes in at more than 5 million and when you consider that the majority of those are high quality members looking to have genuine affairs the number is impressive. You can count on being able to find an affair if you live in a city of any kind and you’ll even have choices if you’re in a more rural area so Ashley Madison has you covered.

Ashley Madison is also one of the few sites that is entirely dedicated to cheating spouses. Others in this list include cheating wives but aren’t dedicated solely to them but Ashley Madison directs all their marketing materials towards spouses looking to cheat and anytime the founder appears on TV or in a magazine/newspaper article he makes it very clear the site is all about helping unsatisfied married people that want to cheat without giving up their marriage. They make that easier at Ashley Madison.

3) Site Design and Functionality Review Of Ashley Madison

Simple is easy seems to be the philosophy of the site design at Ashley Madison and I agree. The design makes use of a white background and feminine shades of purple, making the site friendly to women, which is the whole point and the key to long term success in the business of adult dating. Each profile page features basic information and three sections: sexual desires, info on the person of your dreams, and your personal interests (non-sexual). In each section there’s a list of choices you can put a check mark next to and a box where you can type anything you want. Anything you check off shows up in your profile and there are many choices.

What’s nice about the profile system is that you generally know before messaging someone exactly what they’re into and willing to try so you’ll know if they’re a good match. The site lacks any of the extra features other married but looking sites offer so there are no bonus videos, blogs to read, leased porn content to peruse, etc. That’s all part of the plan though. They want to make it clear that Ashley Madison is only about hooking you up with an affair, which has led to remarkable success for many members and why I give Ashley Madison reviews to positively.

4) Your Chances of Successfully Finding An Affair On Ashley Madison

Ashley Madison actually guarantees you’ll have an affair or they’ll refund your money (as long as you comply with the fairly reasonable terms and pay for the biggest package they offer), which shows their confidence that if you use the site intended you’ll indeed end up in bed with a sexy woman. Their confidence in the product is not misplaced either; my experience tells me that you will have an affair if you put in just a little effort in crafting a good profile and contacting enough women that you seem like a good match for.

The press around Ashley Madison has actually made it an ideal destination for finding a real affair with a high quality woman. The crazy girls looking for unhealthy sex tend to avoid this site; it’s the girls looking for a great affair with a great man that come to Ashley Madison because they read about it in their favorite magazine or watched the founder get yelled at on a daytime talk show while the whole time thinking about how they wanted to have an affair. Next thing you know that housewife is on the site browsing while her husband is at work. A few days later she’s in your bed and you’ve given her the first good orgasm she’s had in months. That’s how Ashley Madison works.

5) Billing Information for Ashley Madison

The majority of sites in the affairs charge you a monthly fee to use their services. Ashley Madison is different. To contact anyone you have to purchase credits and spend them on sending messages, instant messaging, and electronic gifts. The smallest package costs you $49 for 100 credits. It costs 5 credits to send an email message to a girl but you only have to pay for the first one you send her so if you get to talking you won’t have to spend more credits. If you want mobile access you’ll have to pay another $20 (one time fee) and the more credits you buy at once the better rate you get. If you’re bad at crafting messages Ashley Madison will likely cost you more than a traditional sex dating site since you’ll send lots before you hear back from a girl. If you’re good at it and you charm the ladies then it could end up being a great deal cheaper.

    I thought there was nothing left here after there well publicized data breach and joined out of curiosity. I saw that they still purchase television ads and decided to see if there was still anything there worth using. I was pleasantly surprised. I don’t know if anyone can be completely hack-free but this place is as good as any. There isn’t any lack of female profiles. Most are completely filled out. There are also a lot of people online usually. The design of the site was super easy to get the hang of and I got responses back from the all the first few women I messaged. It is worth the time to check it out since its one of the only sites specifically for cheating spouses.

    When it comes to casual dating sites, AM is the site for me. I have tried a few others with very little luck in the past which is why I was really hesitant to try this one but while in Vegas a few months back I saw a billboard, YES AN ACTUAL BILLBOARD advertising Ashley Madison and thought if these guys were legit enough to take out a traditional ad spot like this, they might be worth testing. The only grip I have is there is more working girls then I would like on this site. I would say 30% of all women I chat with are only out to get paid. That said, there still is plenty of real married ladies that just want a little fun on the site. I give Ashley a 5 star review!

    There is no denying this is the oldest and best know affair style site on the web. In fact I think it was almost 10 years ago when I first heard about AM. Funny thing it has taking me this long to finally give it a try. I agree with must of the other reviewers that the token style billing as apposed to a flat rate membership is not ideal. I would much rather be charged 1 price every month then hit for each message or flirt I send but once I got over that, I have been really happy with this site! It is absolutely loaded with real women, something I can’t say for most casual style dating sites. Since joining 2 months ago I have had 4 dates and only one turned out to be a dud. If you are looking to dive into this style of dating you cannot go wrong with AM.

    As a member for the last 18 months I wanted to throw the site a little love and tell anyone thinking about joining this site is legit! I am a happily married man who travels a lot for business, this site is a fantastic way to meet married woman all over the US. The site does a fantastic job protecting your privacy which was my biggest concern before joining. The only information other members see is what you allow them to. The site also does a good job keeping out spammers and other scammers. In my experience over 70% of the members I encounter are real, which if you have joined sites like this before you know is a lot better than must!

    I never really thought that I’d actually meet a lady who’s for real on a stite like AM. I signed up for a free profile and started chatting with a girl named, Tammy. She was a hot, lovely, funny, woman who was unhappily married. We have really hit it off and now see each other every time her husband is out of town. Many thanks Ashley Madison for bring us together.

    I just recently broke up with my girlfriend who I was with for over 5 years. She was my everything and we did everything together. I was so broken up by it my buddy suggested I give online dating a try. Rather than traditional dating I wanted to spice things up and go the casual rout. I remember hearing about Ashley Madison trying to purchase commercial time during the super bowl so I searched the internet for some reviews on it. What I found was mixed, there was some people that loved it and others that did not. In any event I gave in an signed up for a small membership package. It took about 2 weeks but I finally meet up with one of the ladies I had been taking to in person. We hit it off and the rest is history! My confidence returned and I am now meeting a couple girls a month on AM. I highly recommend giving this site a test.

    There is no doubt AM is not the cheapest option out there when in comes to affairs dating, but in my humble opinion it is the best! I am not a big fan of how they bill members by coins rather than a flat membership fee however of all the sites like this I have tried I have had the most luck on Ashley!

    I can’t get enough of women! Using I can find them. Any time I want. I have tired a few other affair sites but nothing stacks up to AM!

    My wife and I are very open people and love bringing both woman and men into our bedrooms for some sexual exploration. While at a local swingers party we were turned on to Ashleymadison. I always figured AM was just for people looking to have an affair, but that is really not the case. There are also swingers, wife swappers and other outgoing individuals with an appetite for sex. Ashleymadison works great at fully our desires!

    We have been members now for almost 6 months and can only say great things about AM! The site is designed very simple which is a good thing as navigating the site and contacting/messaging other members is very easy. The membership base is massive to, at any point of the day there is always at least 50 members online within 10 miles of us, who know so many horn dogs liked in our neighborhood : ) We highly recommend Ashley Madison, but if I was forced to mention something that could be improved, I would like to see a video 2 video chatting option. Similar to skype or Ichat. Currently you can IM chat on but not video chat. With the majority of Laptops having built in cameras this is a real shame and feature the managers at AM should look to add.

    My wife and I have lived the swing lifestyle for the last 10 years. We are a members of a club here in Las Vegas called the Red Rooster. For years we have heard other members talk about Ashley Madison as a safe, drama free way to meet other wife swappers who might not necessarily live in Vegas but will be visiting. Though we were very reluctant at first we finally created an account on to see for ourselves what it was all about. Our biggest concerns going in were privacy, safety, and the quality of other members. I will address each point in my Ashley Madison review. 1) Privacy – ashleymadison does a fantastic job here! The only information shared with other members is what you allow. They do not share your name, email,& phone, unless you decide to put it in your profile. Most important your profile is totally secure from NON-MEMBERS Much much more secure than a site like Facebook which allows searching by name without even being a member. Because we are parents and working professionals it was very important that no one can simply google search and see we have a profile on AM 2) Safety – when you join a swingers club they require a background check, because anyone with a computer can join Ashley Madison my wife and I were very worried about the type of people we would be interacting with. What we have found is, because the site requires a steep fee to contact out members it tends to weed out the scammers and lowlifes. 3) Quality of members – This is the one area that left something to be desired. There are less wife swappers than we would like. The majority of members are men looking for affairs. Over we would recommend Ashley Madison to and one looking for free spirited sex. We have personally meet 3 couples via Ashley Madison and had a fantastic time with all three. Without the help of AM we would have never found each other!

    I personally have had pretty good success on AM. Simply put AshleyMadison Is the real deal! A little about me, I consider myself a fairly good looking guy. I am not saying I am an Abercrombie model but I am in my early 30s, over 6 feet in good shape. I have been married for 4 years and love my wife but enjoy sex to much to keep it to only 1 partner. I have never had any problems hooking-up with women but I have had issues with woman getting way to attached and wanting more than I was looking to give. This is why I turned to Ashley Madison to help me find someone that would respect discretion.

    I contacted a handful of woman who were within 25 miles of me, first sending “winks” (which is a very cool feature), and then chatting on-line with the ones that seemed interested and meet my requirements. The first lady I met in person was a little awkward. The date started at a coffee shop and then get a little physical and then we continued to a hotel. We ended up sleeping together and it we left things off planing to meet again. After that though she started to feel guilty and broke it off.

    The fact that I have been able to find sex at AshleyMadison does not take away from the fact the site can be a little scummy. The biggest aspect is with the consistent messages and chat requestes you get as soon as you sign up. All of these woman are not real and it can be really annoying.
    So while there are real woman beware of the fake users that will contact you as soon you create an account.

    I have tried a lot of affair sites in the past but I keep coming back to Ashley Madison despite their wacky billing. As other reviewers have mentioned is the only site I know that does not charge a monthly fee but rather you need to buy tokens to contact other members, or send them stuff like flirts. I am honestly not a big fan of this style of billing but there is no doubting that ashley madison works at finding affairs! The site is loaded with real members, while so many other sites like this are filled with fake profiles. The member quality on AM is also much higher than other affair sites. I live in Orange Country, CA and if you have seen the show the real housewives of OC you are familiar with the type of older cougars and housewives that in habit my area. Woman like that would not join a site unless its classy and discrete. Both areas succeeds at. If you are looking to find an affair, look no farther than AM!

    My only complaint with Ashleymadison is their billing process. I wish they charged a single flat rate each month rather than charging me for every message a send. As you can image finding an affair on Ashley Madison is a real numbers game you need to send out a lot of quality, well worded, individual introduction emails before you find a woman you vibe with, and under their current system it can get very expensive! There is no question works at helping you find an affair but they really need to adjust how they charge. I recently purchase another block of tokens and might give another site (that changes monthly) a shot once they run out and compare the results.

    As someone who has tried all the major affair sites on-line I can say with certainly that is the best around! Ashley Madison has the largest member base, highest quality members, the most comprehensive navigation functions, and the best thing of all ashleymadison is legit and works at finding affairs! The one gripe I do have is the billing on AM. Most sites charge a flat monthly fee while Ashley Madison requires you purchase token and each time you contact a member it costs you a token, if you want to send a flirt more tokens, video chat yep you guessed it yet more tokens! This billing model makes it very important to only contact people you actually have a chance with. And since dating is nothing but a numbers game this can become a little annoying as it forces you to really pick and choose who is worth the cost of contacting.

    My job keeps me on the road 3 out of 4 weeks a month. For years I turned to Craigslist or Eros to find local escorts to satisfy my needs. Because I do have a wife I am not looking for anything serious, or for the other woman to get attached. That was the biggest reason I turned to escorts. I was not paying them to have sex as much as I was paying them to leave! All of that changed when I discovered This site makes it so easy for me to find women in whatever town I may be in who are not looking for anything but sex! The majority of members on Ashley Madison are married like I am so there is an universal understanding not to get attached. Thanks To Ashley Madison I now have regular woman I visit when I am in their town. works great and I highly recommend it.

    My wife and I are always looking for new ways to meet other wife swappers and swingers. Ashley Madison fits the bill! With such a large member base there is no shortage of locals to party with. I highly recommend this site!

    I have found Ashley Madison to be one of only a handful of truly legit affair sites on the net. Where they excel and others fail is advertising to woman! This allows the site to be filled with more potential REAL mates than most sites I have tried. Because of this I have had no problem at all meeting both woman looking for something discreet as well as couples looking to wife swap. The site could do a little better adding additional features such as SMS messages or better video chatting but over all GREAT JOB A.M!

    Almost everyone has heard of Ashley Madison. I think the first time I heard the name was actually an ad on Howard Stern. While searching for some affair advice I stumbled on the site and created a profile. The way the site bills is a little strange. You sign up for free but it costs every time you want to contact someone, and you need to purchase tokens. I bought the smallest package I could which I believe was around $20 to give it a test. There is differently no shortage of swingers, wife swappers and married but looking ladies on Ashley Madison. It may not be the cheapest option available but there is no doubt it works!

    Being a man who loves to wife swap with my wife of 15 years. Ashley Madison is a much better alternative than casual encounters section on Craig’s list or swinger clubs. All the couples we have meet on Ashley Madison have been drug and drama free, and experienced enough to make the night a success. Ashley Madison is highly recommended in our community.
