Here it is, folks. This is the number one dumbest website we’ve found in our quest to uncover which websites are real, which are scams, and which are just plain bad.
Here as exhibit A we have BeNaughty.com, an asinine weird little website that we emphatically wish we’d never heard of, except for one simple fact. The five of us were so amused at first by the stupidity of this website that we actually quote it to each other almost all the time online and over the phone, and it never fails to get a laugh.
What’s so funny? Read on and find out.
BeNaughty.com Review: Why BeNaughty.com Isn’t in Our “Best” List
First of all, BeNaughty.com shouldn’t be on ANYONE’S “best” list. This site is awful. The colors are tacky (and if a bunch of straight guys notice that something is tacky, it’s REALLY freaking tacky), the sorting algorithm is all messed up, the email system is a hot pile of slop, and the ways it offers to communicate with people are really spammy.
For example, there are things called icebreakers. You have the choice, with a paid membership, to send an icebreaker to any guy or girl who appears on your list. That’s pretty normal, and sounds harmless for the most part, doesn’t it?
Except that for girls, they have the opportunity to send an icebreaker or anything else to everyone at the same time. You have no way of knowing if someone actually thinks you’re hot or just can’t be bothered to send a message to only the guys she actually wants to bang, when she could just send the same message to everyone at once.
Hmm…casting a net wide…not caring if people think it’s trash….not targeting it towards anyone in particular…
Yep, that’s the actual definition of Internet spam. With BeNaughty.com, it’s a design feature! Yeah, that doesn’t really endear us to this site or make us feel better about being on a site with such a dumb name in the first place.
Results From BeNaughty.com: Why BeNaughty.com Is Not Legit
Let’s talk about how many girls we actually got contacted by. We sent out 900 emails. We were really, really determined to make this experiment a success, and only sent out emails, chats, and icebreakers to the girls we thought were genuinely hot. We don’t go for that “broadcast” crap, and we wish girls didn’t do that, either.
Of all the emails we sent out, we only got back 102. That’s a miserable total for us, and it didn’t make us feel any better that we were some of the only guys who actually got girls to talk to us.
According to Reuters, 10 percent of girls who try online dating quit in the first three months. According to our experiences doing a BeNaughty comparison, all of those people that left were from BeNaughty, because it was a pretty empty site.
We only set up four dates. No one showed.
These are not great results. If you look at some of our results from the Top Five websites, like SocialSex and Xpress.com, you’ll see that these results are not typical of our methods. On sites that aren’t scams, these methods work every time.
Long story short, we didn’t get a single date and we didn’t close any deals courtesy of this stupid, broken, weird, creepy site. Trash this one and move on.
Why It’s Not Worth Signing Up For: Is BeNaughty.com a Scam?
There is something WRONG with this website. No, we don’t mean that in the way that there’s something wrong with a broken clock, we mean that in the way there’s something wrong with a clock that pops out a serial killer clown face at random intervals and giggles.
According to the brilliant minds at BeNaughty.com, you only need three words to turn someone on: flirty, steamy, and naughty. Does that sound weird? Yeah, it sounds pretty weird to us, too.
The icebreakers, which are very numerous, are all kind of the same, and every single one of them uses at least one of these words. Some examples of these phrases are:
“Im a steamy guy….ur a steamy girl…we should have steamy chat…”
“u like flirty guys? Lets be steamy”
“im feelin naughty 😉 are you up for steamy chat lol”
Sending any of these icebreakers made us feel weirdly unconfident in our masculinity, so we opted for email instead…where we were given the exact same options.
Seriously, who thought those were a good idea? Who thought they were sexy? Can someone please tell them that they were very wrong? All they’re doing is creeping us out, certainly not selling anyone on the idea of BeNaughty.
BeNaughty.com Review: Should You Try BeNaughty.com For Hooking Up?
No, you should not use BeNaughty.com. God, no. Hell, no.
In fact, you should stay pretty much as far away from this website as you can manage. Find out where it is and go somewhere else. It will not get you laid, it will not make you friends. Bring some rice and raw vegetables, maybe you can get them steamed. It seems to be full of steamy people, whatever that means.
Seriously, though, this website was also coded by a four-year-old. If you hover your mouse over the email window, it locks up and refuses to scroll anywhere else. If you try to send an email, it disappears, never to be seen in any kind of a sent mail folder.
BeNaughty.com also offers a lot of interactive drop-down menus that are absolutely useless. They exist in several places on the same page, sometimes three whole sets of toolbars on the same page, all blinking and flashing whenever you have a single notification which could be nothing but someone broadcasting a wink.
But if ur a steamy guy….lookin 4 a flirty gal….maybe u cud have steamy naughty chat…
We’re sorry. Typing that out hurt us as much as it probably hurt you to read it. Just PASS on this terrible and creepy website, and try out a site like SocialSex instead, which actually understands its audience. You’ll be glad you did.
