The world’s largest network of casual meetings. The erotic portal bookofsex.com is a direct offshoot of the much better known AdultFriendFinder. The two portals are almost identical apart from the name and the start page. In the member area it is visually very down to earth, which is why there should not be a direct link to the page in Germany. Over 67 million members are now registered in the large network worldwide. The platform is available in 11 languages. The operator of the portals AdultFriendFinder is considered to be the world’s largest provider of adult dating portals. This company has existed since 1996.
On the home page there is a member counter in the middle, which at the time of our test had already clearly cracked the 67 million market. Further down the page, it says 30 million members. The upper display should certainly be the more recent one. It cannot be said to what extent this actually applies. In any case, the network is very large, that much is certain. In Germany, however, there doesn’t seem to be that much going on, because initially you get profiles mostly from other countries, especially the USA, which is the busiest. If you set the search settings a little more precisely, you will also find members from Germany. We could not determine the gender ratio here. However, since the platform is identical to AdultFriendFinder and the proportion of men there is an incredible 87%, we have our answer. That means there are only 13% women. A pleasant interaction with one another is therefore virtually impossible. The audience here also seems to be rather young, i.e. between around 20 and mid-30s.
When you register for the first time, which is very quick, you will receive a confirmation email as usual. This likes to be hidden in the spam folder, so it’s best to have a look there if you can’t find it in your normal inbox. If you log in for the first time, it becomes immediately clear to you why the mail ended up in the spam folder. It’s pretty revealing here, to put it mildly. Immediately on the first page after logging in, pictures jump towards you, some of which push the limits of good taste. That means from simple nude pictures to various handouts during sexual intercourse are represented here. So this is not for the faint of heart. This is probably the reason why you shouldn’t link to this portal in Germany. In addition to the erotic dating area, which is certainly the centerpiece of the portal, there is also live action, i.e. webcams and an area for films.
There are different cost models. In addition to the gold membership, which unlocks all areas, it is optionally possible to book only the contacts area or only the area for erotic films. The gold membership is 7.47 € per month, which is actually extremely cheap. So if you don’t want an overly sophisticated casual dating portal, you will actually get a very decent price-performance ratio here.
This is a somewhat more special portal, although this one seems to be aimed at the masses like hardly any other, with so many members. Unfortunately, however, there is a surplus of men here, at 87%, who are unparalleled. From a purely quantitative point of view, BookofSex can only be recommended to women. However, these should not be too squeamish, because anyone who wants to be seduced by a gentleman is definitely wrong here. It’s extremely clear here. The site can only be recommended for men to a limited extent, precisely because of the extreme excess of men. He is used to online dating and knows how to get a woman enthusiastic about himself on the Internet, but he definitely has opportunities here. But since there seem to be few men who can pay and thus also communicate, the surplus of men is put into perspective again. Therefore, this service can even be treated as a small insider tip. Men who are willing to spend a little money have practically free rein here. Basically, the principle usually applies that it is best to take a look at the portal yourself and then make your own judgment. However, this advice would not be appropriate here. So only those who do not mind if you are greeted directly with close-up pictures of various genitals should register. If you have a hard time getting such images out of your memory, you should skip this portal and take a look at our test winners, where things are much more sophisticated.
