Illicit Encounters All reviews, opinions and experiences

A Site for Illicit Hookups and More

Illicit Encounters is built for affairs. This might mean some extra-marital fun, or much more. Really, it’s up to you to be clear about what you’re looking for, using the site’s tools to help you do so.

Sign up in a few Minutes

Signing up to Illicit Encounters is easy. There are a few questions about who you are, and then you’re in. You will need an email address that you can verify, but photos aren’t necessarily needed. You have to disclose your relationship status -- no one on the site is single. Your profile can be filled in personally, or you can use the Illicit Encounters Profile Generator.

Finding the one (for Whatever you Have in Mind!)

Illicit Encounters is largely a site for casual dating. You can search users nearby, and most have fun, flirty pictures and profiles. You can also view users online now, which is a less common way to narrow things down but can definitely work if flirting is what you want.

Matchfinder

Matchfinder will send you daily matches, based on a set of criteria you put in. This takes some of the hassle out of online dating if you’re pressed for time, and maybe expands your horizons too.

Help With the Tricky Profile...

Profiles on Illicit Encounters are simple. In fact, they write themselves! Profile Generator will ask you a few questions, and then come up with a bio. You can change it all you like, but it’s a good jumping off point.

Is Paying Worth it on Illicit Encounters?

You need to pay to use the site properly, but there’s not getting around it, it’s not cheap. The upside here is that the price tag keeps away scammers, as well as ensuring that everyone signed up is serious about finding some adult fun outside of their relationship.

If you Need to Cancel

Go through Customer Support to cancel your membership, or to delete your account. If deleting it entirely, do bear in mind the fact that you will not be able to recover your account once it’s deleted.

Illicit Encounters Features

Profile Generator

The Illicit Encounters specific features begin before you’ve even verified your profile! Profile generator can be used to write up a profile for you to use on the site, or use as a template and tweak to perfection. It’s just a few questions, and is great if you’re short on time or aren’t a wordsmith. You will have to make a few changes so as not to sound like a robot, but that only takes a couple of minutes.

Something for Everyone

Same sex searches and matches are available on Illicit Encounters, which is not always the case on sites like this.

Show Your Beautiful Face… or Don’t

You should upload pictures, sure, it’ll get you more interest, but it isn’t required on Illicit Encounters. There’s also no problem with uploading pictures of just your body.

Invisible Mode and Holiday Mode

You can hide your profile from searches, or even suspend it for up to three weeks. This is useful if you won’t be using it for some reason, and also if you’re scared you might be about to get caught being, well, illicit!

Premium Perks

What do you get if you pay for a premium account on Illicit Encounters? Here are a few of the added benefits.

Send and Receive Messages

With premium membership, you can send and receive as many messages with other members as you like. This is the best way to get to know people.

Invisible Mode and Holiday Mode

You can hide your profile from searches, or even suspend it for up to three weeks. This is useful if you won’t be using it for some reason, and also if you’re scared you might be about to get caught being, well, illicit!

Keep Ahold of Favourites

On Illicit Encounters, premium members can favourite the profiles of people they’re interested in. That means they can return to them easily, and can save people for later if it’s not a good time to message.

Send Gifts and Kisses

You get credits with your VIP membership. These can be used to send gifts to members whose attention you want, as well as kisses for a little flirt!

And finally, my opinion on Illicit Encounters

Illicit Encounters may look a little old fashioned once you’re in, but it has all the features you would expect from a dating site and, importantly for a site that is primarily geared towards affairs and illicit dating, it puts a premium on security and privacy. Pictures are all protected, and no info that could be used to identify you should be shared. Letters to Sara is an unusual feature, and a fun one. Maybe even potentially helpful! It allows users to give one another agony aunt style advice, and also to submit questions or problems that need such advice. Premium membership is expensive though, and that’s hard to ignore! Maybe if you’re looking for a match in a particular tax bracket, Illicit Encounters could be for you. But unfortunately, it prices many out despite its top-notch features.

Safe platform that offers really good support and customer service. Excellent process and outcome. I’ve met a lovely lady, and honestly I’m having the time of my life. If you’re unsure, I can only say you should probably go for it!

I've been on and off for a few years and love it. Yes there are some fake guys on there as guys will find fake women, but as you suss them out and ditch them, there are so many more real people to find. I've had so much fun. I've met some brilliant guys and had great relationships with them. It's just fun and that's how it should be viewed

Yes 7 No 3
Erin, 52 years old

I love this site and its wonderful support team! It is not the site itself that a problem. It is the type of ignorant individual that is in here �� All in all, great support team, efficient and reliable. A professional dating app with layers of security. Just need to pick and choose the ripe apples that are without worms... haha. My experiences have been mixed, but I carry on!

Yes 9 No 11
