Ashley Madison Review by Vanessa Ashley Madison

Review by Vanessa

Released Oct 11, '12 , Written Oct 2, '12

You've heard their commercials all over satellite radio and wondered if it could be true; hot but bored housewives looking for a man like you to cheat on their husbands with. A different approach for marketing an online dating/personals site for sure, but is that what you can really expect to find inside? I know I've been curious and since this is my first chance to review what's inside I hope I have enough credits to really take part in some action. Membership credits start at 100 credits for $49 bucks and up to their "Affair" package priced at $249 for 1000 credits.

The Pros

  Large Number of Personal Ads.

As far as personals sites go, especially in the world of Adult online dating, Ashley Madison is probably one of the largest with more than 14,850,000 active members online. I have to say I was a bit impressed with some of the profiles here, too. Compared to many sites we see, there does appear to be some solid users looking to hook up and people who've taken the time to fill out some personal information in their profiles.

  Advanced Search Tool.

While this is probably the most advanced part of the sites design, it does offer users the ability to browse through profiles by many filtering tools and specifics. It lets you narrow the search by language, last log-in, age, relationship status, ethnicity, physical features, location, and more. Another cool feature is the ability to view who has recently viewed your profile.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Registration is free. You can join and check out what the member's area is like before you pay anything.
  • There are some fun interactive features like Winks, gifts, and private photo galleries.

The Cons

  Site Design And Set-up is Very Basic.

And when I say basic, I mean too basic. After all the press that this site gets and how much they claim to make of their member's on shows like Howard Stern, I was a little taken back to the super old school looking site set-up. There are no fancy graphics here, but that aside, other than a search tool and a few features like instant messaging, there really isn't much to this site. I'm used to seeing adult personals sites with the ability to chat live & on cam, send different kinds of badges, gifts, messages, community forums, articles, etc. There is almost nothing like that here, just a basic personals listing site and that's it.


Starting at $49 bucks for 100 credits and not to be able to do much other than browse around without them, this is one expensive personals site. The credit system works like this:

5 Credits to send priority and open collect mail messages.
5 Credits only for the first mail message. Additional mail messages to the same member are FREE!
AshleyGifts - Virtual Gifts are available for 20, 30, and 50 credits.

Costs Per Instant Message Session:
30 Minutes = 30 Credits
60 Minutes = 50 Credits

Yep, it's expensive!

Minor Negatives:

  • Most profiles don't offer a ton of images, especially as a guest user who doesn't have access to the complete profiles "private showcase" picture sets. And what pics you will see are usually very small and not great quality.
  • Many half filled out profiles.

Bottom Line

An adults personals site for affairs but more basic and expensive than I expected.

I was a bit surprised at the extremely basic set-up and design of Ashley Madison. Given all its press I guess I was expecting a super advanced set-up here. In fact, the only thing that seems to be advanced is the speed at which they manage to drain your precious credits. This is one expensive personals site that's for sure, but maybe that's why their hookup success rate is claimed to be so high? There is some genius in simplicity and with more than 14,850,000 ads online, the prospect of finding someone to have an affair with looks good.
