The Adult Hub Review: Adult Dating Community & Popular Swingers Site
The Adult Hub is where people come for fun. From swingers to singles and couples looking for a casual hook-up, it’s an online community where people can find each other in a safe and controlled environment.
Most people aren’t looking for anything serious -- they want casual hook ups or to try something new.
You’ll also find swingers parties and clubs nearby, where members can get a group together to go and visit, so there’s plenty of opportunity to meet many members face to face.

How The Adult Hub Site Works
The Adult Hub is basically a site where you can discover all sorts of people in your area; from swingers and singles, to couples looking for a bit of fun. On your homepage you’ll see a range of matches that you can say yes or no to. Saying no will discard the profile, but say yes and they’ll go into your favourites, where you start a conversation with them. You can also have a look at top photos and videos to try and find people you want to connect with.
There’s also a section on swingers’ clubs and parties in your area, where members of the site can use to meet up and have some fun. Here are some Trustpilot reviews where people talk about their experience with this site.
Signing up to The Adult Hub
When you create a username and password, you’re sent an activation code to your email address in order for you to confirm your account. Afterwards, you answer a few quick questions about what you’re looking for, write a header for your profile and some basic information that everyone will see.
You can sign up as a male, female, couple, cross-dresser, transvestite or transsexual.
Ease of use
The site is filled with ads and buttons and all sorts of features -- all of which make it really hard to know where to start with browsing. There’s just so much going on and so much to look at, which can be off-putting and distracting for some.
Making contact,chat, messaging & notifications
If you like the look of a member and want to see more, you can ask to see their private media (if they have any). You can also send a friendship invitation, like their pictures or comment on photos.
Not all members can receive messages from free members, so you might have to do some groundwork for them to get to know you first if you haven’t upgraded.
There is a fair amount of detail available on profiles -- the information you’d expect to see, at least. While there’s not loads of words, you can see what they’re interested in, what they’re looking to find, their age and location, and you can see the headline they’ve written about themselves.
You may have to do some more digging to find out more, like dropping them a message or asking them to see additional media.
Real life reviews for The Adult Hub
I tried to sign-up and to look around for women. Big beautiful women. I was able to see a lot. And not only a lot but also big beautiful hot women. My imagination got wild. I browsed more profiles and tried sending a message to some BBW who caught my attention. However, I would only be able to communicate with them better if I had a VIP membership. That way, I would also get to see their locked photos and videos. I got excited, so I looked for my card details and upgraded my Classic membership.
Since signing up, I have been meeting and doing hot stuff with some BBW who are interested in me as well. Now I have more reasons not to commit.”

Is the Adult Hub safe?
Adult Hub prides itself on being discreet. They won’t display your personal details anywhere on the site, and the words ‘Adult Hub’ won’t show up on your bank statement in order to protect your privacy.
Their email systems are also SenderScore certified, which means they will only use your email to notify you of any activity on your profile. You can opt out of this.
Cost, prices & rates
You can use many of the site’s features for free, but there’s the VIP package you can upgrade to if you want to get unlimited messaging. It costs the following:
- 1 month: £22.46 per month
- 3 months: £17.98 per month

Discounts, offers & promo codes
The Adult Hub is currently offering a discount on their 6 months package: buy 3 months get 3 free. We always recommend doing a Google search too, just to have a look and see what’s out there first. Also, if you’re not satisfied with VIP membership after 30 days, you get another 30 days free.
Is the Adult Hub free to join?
Anyone can join the site for free and unlock most of the site’s features. This is for an unlimited amount of time, so you don’t really get a free trial but you can choose to use the site for free without upgrading, if you wish.
Is the Adult Hub a good swinging site?
Adult dating websites can be a bit hit and miss due to their extreme content, but The Adult Hub gets the balance right. As it’s aimed at swingers, couples and open-minded people looking for fun, you have to expect a little bit of risque content, but there’s not so much of it that it feels like a fully X rated site.
The biggest benefit is they’re great at being discreet with your personal details. This means that you don’t have to worry if you don’t want people around you to know you’re on the site, allowing you additional privacy. And it’s great that you can turn off adult content if you’d rather not see it.
The biggest downside is the website. There is so much going on -- with videos, pop-ups, member information and other bits and bobs, that it’s incredibly difficult to know where to look. It’s really distracting and The Adult Hub should definitely do a bit of tidying up to improve the user experience. However, we can’t argue that it’s a safe community for people to be free with dating.
- Ease of Use
What should I do if I have forgotten my password?
If you forgot your Adult Hub password, you can retrieve it using the ‘Forgotten password’ service. Simply enter your username in the box and the system will send you your password to the email given with your profile.
Password reminders are always sent. Check your junk mail folder as these emails are sometimes interpreted as spam by your email provider. Add the Adult Hub email address to your safe sender/contact list to ensure you can receive emails in the future.
If you forgot your Adult Hub username, let the support team know the email address you used to create your profile and they will provide you with login details.
How can I stop receiving emails from Adult Hub?
If you would like to stop receiving emails, go to ‘Settings’ page in your profile. Then, go through the settings wizard where you can manage your options about receiving promotional emails, messages and notifications. You are also able to unsubscribe by clicking on the link at the bottom of any email you receive from Adult Hub.
Why can’t I get into the Adult Hub chat room?
To access the chat room, you should have the latest version of Flash installed. Check here http://www.adobe.com/support/flash/downloads.html. Aldo delete all temporary internet files and cookies from your internet options tool menu, restart your PC and try again.
Why have I been banned from chat?
If you have been banned from chat on Adult Hub it is most likely because you have been abusive to one of the chat monitors or to another member, sent repeated personal chat messages without permission or caused disruption within the chat room. If you’re unsure why you were banned, let Adult Hub know the date and time that you were banned and they can let you know the reason.
Why am I not getting emails or message notifications from the Adult Hub site?
Your ISP is probably using a spam filter. Add Adult Hub to your trusted list of senders, contacts or address book.
If you do not see any emails from The HubPeople in your inbox, this is probably due to ISP filters that have sent the email to your spam folder. Open your spam folder and look for it where you can mark as ‘not spam’.
How can I delete my profile from the Adult Hub site?
If you would like to remove your profile, you will need to speak with a member of the customer service staff. You can do this through live chat on the membership page or by contacting the customer service number which is freephone from UK landlines.
Why is my profile still Classic if I have upgraded my Adult Hub account to Premium Membership?
It is very possible that your card was declined (by your card issuer) after your transaction was processed. Also, if you have more than one profile, your premium membership might have been transferred to a different profile.
If you think your card has been charged, tell Adult Hub the date of your payment, the name on your card and profile username. They will be able to find your transaction on the database and help you with the payment problem.
My photo has not been approved by Adult Hub, what’s wrong with it? Why has my photo been marked as ‘naughty’?
Adult Hub does not accept any photos containing children, email addresses, website urls, cartoons, phone numbers, logos or personal possessions. They only accept photos of members themselves.
All photos are reviewed by Adult Hub and classified as either normal or naughty. For a photo to pass their standards, your main profile photo must show your face or full body. With full body it should show your shoulders and finish at your knees and contain zero nudity.
Any photos that contain genital nudity or explicit acts can be on your profile but not in your main profile image.
How can I edit my Adult Hub profile?
To edit your profile, select the ‘edit this section’ button found on your profile. Once you are happy with your profile, select ‘save changes’. Your profile headline should be 30 characters in length for the updated profile page to submit. Edit your profile so that the headline length is long enough and you will be able to update your location.
I have deleted my profile but can still see it in Google orother search engines?
This happens sometimes because your profile has been cached by Google or another search engine and stored into their memory. Unfortunately, Adult Hub are unable to take action and you will need to wait until Google crawls the site and removes the indexed pages.
How can I stop automatic payments and subscription billings?
If you would like to cancel your account, you will need to speak to support on the phone or on instant live chat. Click your username in the upper right corner of the page and follow the drop-down menu to Membership. The live chat bubble will appear at the bottom right of the page.
The phone line is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm (GMT). Outside of these times you can leave a message and the customer support team will respond as soon as possible. Remember to provide your profile username, reason for calling and a phone number or email address to get back to you.
Outside of these times, you can also use the live chat assistance to cancel your Adult Hub billing and subscription. This is live from Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and 6pm until 11pm (GMT). The chat is also available on Saturday and Sunday from 6pm until 11pm (GMT).
Why aren’t my credit/ debit cards being accepted?
Adult Hub uses a secure billing provider that may decline credit/ debit cards for a variety of reasons. One of the main reasons is a strict security policy (due tot he nature of the Adult Hub website).
If you a receive a ‘do not honour’ message, you should log off and on and then try again. Some members that receive this message complete their transaction on the second or third attempt of making payment.
The Adult Hub also offers a secondary billing provider through Netbanx and CCBill, which is a good alternative option if you are having trouble with your main payment method.
What are Ukash payments on Adult Hub? Am I able to pay monthly with Ukash? Why isn’t my Ukash voucher working
If you are a UK member, you can pay with UKash vouchers. These are anonymous pre-paid vouchers which work in the same way as mobile phone top-up vouchers. The Ukash payments are available for 9 and 15 month subscription payments. They have a higher admin cost than credit or debit billing, so Adult Hub cannot accept Ukash for monthly premium membership.
Ukash vouchers must be in GBP and made for the exact amount for the form to submit. You can also convert your voucher for GBP and split or combine vouchers so that you have one for the exact amount. Refer to the www.ukash.com website.
