Passion.com is the Friend Finder Nework site that helps вЂpassionateвЂ™ men, women, couples, groups, and TS/TV/TGs find suitable companions. The site is virtually identical to Adult Friend Finder in terms of activity options, profiles, communication methods, Sex Academy, even site layout and design. In fact, without viewing your URL, it would be nearly impossible to determine which of the two sites you are on. If Adult Friend Finder isnвЂ™t meeting your needs as for hooking up online, but you enjoy the site structure and functionality, switching over to Passion is your best bet.
Although Passion and Adult Friend Finder are virtually the same at first glance, what does differentiates the two hookup sites are their user bases. While Adult Friend Finder is massive, toting an impressive 40 million members, Passion has a smaller, more refined user based that quite frankly is hotter, newer, and sexier that the former. Both site are sexified versions of Facebook complete with racy pictures and nudity depending on your preferences, but Passion hits the mark with a more attractive, sensually-stimulating user base giving the site an additional flirtatious undertone.В
One of the flagship properties of the Friend Finder Network, FriendFinder.com is a social community site composed of individual вЂonline personalsвЂ™ – aka dating profiles. The social hub is intended to help users digitally interact with each other in order to spark friendships, sexual encounters, and romances. As with many of the Friend Finder Network sites, the user interface looks more like a social community – think Facebook or Myspace – than a dating site that is strictly designed to guide you to the love of your life, and as such, Friend Finder is largely used for hooking up online. This isnвЂ™t a site to sit back and let others find you. In fact, the site is rather static if you donвЂ™t put some effort into it, but with an abundance of activity options, including searches, chats, blogs, and more, getting started on the site requires minimal effort.
Bling, (yes, itвЂ™s actually called that) is a unique feature of the site that adds a gamified twist. Each bling is a small icon shown on your profile to visually portray your personality. Blings can be almost anything you can think of that you are able to squeeze into a small icon such as a picture of a sunset, a quote, a pickup line, an animal, a heart, etc. You can pick your own bling from a list of generic, yet clever choices, take bling from member profiles, receive bling as gifts, or even create your very own bling using the an online editor. Although it seems like a random feature of a hookup site, bling actually proves to be a useful option, as it allows you to immediately get a sense of an individual memberвЂ™s profile, without having to read endless paragraphs of self-disclosed bio information.
Overall, Friend Finder is a toned down version of many of the other Friend Finder Network sites – no live webcams or X-rated videos here – that does a solid job of making hooking up online a fun yet flirtatious, interactive adventure.
