XXXblackbook.com review

Quick Summary:


Hookup potential: 3/5 Features: 3/5 Design: 4/5 Content: 3/5

  • Hook-up website slanted towards voyeurs and exhibitionists
  • Clean, user-friendly design
  • Fast video upload and download
  • Nice video chat

The Full Story:

My first impression of XXXblackbook.com was that it’s for voyeurs and exhibitionists. People who like to share their kinky interests with the whole class and people who like to watch and listen.

The video chat is a good example. There are several rooms to join, depending on the topic (or kind of people) that interest you. Since the automatic setting is for video chat, it tries to turn on your microphone and camera as soon as you log in (a minor annoyance–I don’t like pushy software). Plenty of people in the video chatrooms have both on and some of them are busy masturbating for your amusement: mostly guys, though I saw a couple of woman busy at it too. Also notable is the “Erotica” option under your personal profile. This allows you to write and share your own erotic stories. Most of the ones I read were more porn-y than “my eyes locked on his engorged member as it bobbed about like a fern frond,” though that’s what I expected from a predominantly male membership. XXXblackbook.com also offers a personal video upload option. Again, most of the videos are pretty graphic home-made sex videos.

Anyway, assuming you do find someone interesting on the site whom you want to contact, you can send mail, chat live or send a flirt. A flirt is one of those “nudge” type feature. You don’t have to think of anything original, just choose one from the dropdown menu. Cute.

I did encounter one difficulty here, though. When you see that someone is online, you need to go into their profile in order to contact them by mail, flirt or chat. The thing is that the Chat Live and Send IM buttons are next to each other. I checked both out myself and was sent to the Video Chat rooms when I clicked on Chat Live. I was like, “Okay – so where’s the girl?” I was forced to click on the back arrow of the browser to get to the girl’s profile page again.

I did really like the search options. There are basic, advanced and perfect search options. The basic’s good enough when you’re just looking for someone who’s online, and not necessary someone to hook up with for real. Unlike other dating sites that I’ve seen, the result pages are neat and do not have a cluttered, ‘too busy’ feel to them. There’s enough white space that you feel you can ‘breathe’, visually. A nice touch also is that more information about people is provided when you mouseover, including how many photos they have, what their rating is, and what kind of a partner they’re looking for.

The video quality of both video uploads and video chat is commendable. The graphics are clear while not being so high-res that it affects the streaming speed. There’s strange background noise on the video chat room sometimes though, even when switching between one video and another. It’s weird, but it doesn’t always come on. Someone in one of the chat rooms told me that it was some hacker trying to bug the hell out of the chatters, which seemed unlikely.

Overall, I’d describe the site as neat and functional. Though they’ve already amassed a sizable membership it doesn’t feel as though they’ve compromised the visuals and space as a consequence. I did find the ads troublesome sometimes. Do they have to be animated? Really? I felt they often detracted away from the simple ‘classic’ feel of the site. Having a looped animation of jiggling boobs and cock sucking going on while you’re trying to read some woman’s erotica page, can be downright irritating.

But this is one dating site I’d come back to, even when I’m not up for hookups or whatever. They’ve clearly put a lot of effort into trying to make the site a place you’d like to hang out, even when you’re not on the prowl. On the video chat, for example, there’s usually a group of people playing strip Texas holdem up poker. And over in the next chat room, a group of older men and women are playing trivial pursuit–albeit fully clothed. So, the “adult” fun here is not all naughty and kinky. I met some really cool people during the few weeks I spent here; and arranged a “play date” to boot.

Worth a go.

    I signed up at this site a few weeks ago and I must say, great job on the video quality. Really commendable. Thumbs up!

    Sometimes there are some steamy conversations in adult chat rooms that probably shouldn’t be repeated over the water cooler at the office.Protecting the freedom of expression provided to you by a chat room is simply a matter of being discreet about the personal information you reveal online.

    Thanks for the review; this site seems to be a lot better than the others, in particular the screenshot of the members’ area looks clean and easy to use.

    Checked the site. It’s full of features, including live webcam chats, the ability to view videos and the powerful search engine where you can find members who live very nearby to you.

    Sorry guys, I joined to get laid and not to watch porn, I can do that FOR FREE on a whole bunch of other sites. I found Blackbookxxx totally lame and a waste of money. They had the same dozen chicks on there who lived near me and half of them were lesbians looking. Now, how frustrating is that? After 3 months and I forgot how much cash, I canceled without ever having one date.

      You won’t get porn of that quality or camgirl shows for free, and it sounds like you were just unlucky with what they had available in your area.

    I agree with many of the points of the review. My overall impression based on experience is a little bit different though. Perhaps it is because of the area of the country that I live in, but after setting up my profile I received and initiated contact with members in my local area and never heard back from any of them again. I eventually went through the list of local profiles and contacted all of the active ones, received interest from most, but never heard from any of them again. My profile seemed to be continuously viewed by the same group of local women, but still no email contact. I can only surmise that none of these profiles are real, and that this site is simply not a good one for me in my area of the country. After a couple of months there was not even a hint of hooking up with a woman. I also agree with a previous post that I signed up for this site to get laid, not watch amateur porn. I won’t go so far as to say this site was a total rip off, but you do have to wonder with the number of what I can only believe are bogus profiles.

      I did meet one girl for a hookup within a couple of weeks, but who knows. Maybe I was just lucky. It was hard to tell about the fake profiles.

      Basically, I’ve come to expect a certain level of fake profile insertion with any “adult dating” site, but the ratio of real:fake, at least in my area, didn’t seem excessive to me.

    Site is awesome. I happened to hook up 4 girls from here and even counting for the next weeks.

    I smell a rat. I’ve just signed up there as a free member- so can’t do much. But what I noticed is that I have 4 inbox messages (can’t read them, have to be a paid subscriber) — but ALL of the profiles from Amsterdam right now feature information with probably NO spelling mistakes whatsoever. Now, I believe that a Dutch person’s English is fairly decent – but it is virtually impossible to have almost every single woman on the site a) have an english handle b) have next to no spelling mistakes c) use very typical American or UK English words in their descriptions. Quite peculiar.

    exactly the rat I smell!
    Same goes for Belgian girls actually.. Either the Dutch and Belgian based girls happen to be exclusively expats -rather well educated as well-, or this is at least somewhat scammy.

    Hey everybody, Hi I’m an unlucky guy who suffered a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and was in a coma for 14 months, so I’m awake now and trying to get better. At least I can walk now with a cane and don’t need that stupid wheelchair, but the problem is I can’t work a full-time job yet, and I collect a very small amount of Social Security, so I was really hoping that somebody knew how I could get a program to hack passwords for websites like XXXblackbook.com, if anyone does that would be great and highly appreciated…………….Thanks -Alex

    Yep….I think there is a HIGH rate of bot activity and fake profiles. And the Instant Messaging does NOT work.

    Definitely a rip off – caveat emptor.

    xxxblackbook appears to be a scam. Don’t sign up, even for free. They’re professional hackers- give them your credit card info and you’re doomed. Give them your phone number and expect harassment. The reviewer is high on something.

    Don’t be a complete idiot, XXXBlackBook is a scam…do a Google search on them before you even THINK about joining and giving them your credit card information!
    If you join with a free account, don’t be fooled by the computer program that sends you fake emails every day, pretending to be women interested in you…once you sign up for a paid account so you can actually READ what is being sent to you, those emails will mysteriously stop arriving in your email box….LOL
    If you want to watch web cam videos, go to XHampster and see them for free.

    XXXBlackbook are notorious spammers, anyone who thinks they are legitimate or offers a good service is either easy to con or paid to post the comment.

    The site’s pretty much a total scam. Sign up and don’t fill out any of the profile information and you’ll get flirts and emails from about 4-5 women which just reeks of spambot. About a year ago I decided to try their 14 day trial offer. 90% of the emails I got were spam or just women seeking attention. But one of the emails did pay off.

    After a couple emails I got her number and we did hook up. She definitely lived up to what she put in her profile, she gave me head five minutes after meeting for the first time and we wound up spending all night getting high and shagging. But she wasn’t a porn star looking model type, she was a black BBW. She was slutty enough and sexually uninhibited enough for me to get past the BBW part. I shagged her a couple more times before it got boring and embarassing.

    I cancelled my membership after that hook up. I had no problems with any billing scams, but that might be because I closed my bank account and cancelled that credit card for unrelated reasons.

    Yea, XXXBlackBook is a total scam. And they’ve brought their scamming skill up a notch too during the time I’m there. Apparently they have bot accounts sending you seemingly real email (something with the title like: “hi” or “hope we can chat soon”) just to entice you into upgrading into paying sub.

    Btw, those bot accounts I mentioned did not contacted me first. Rather, those emails were sent after I flirted with those accounts. Making them seem a whole lot more real.

    I never even put up a picture and started getting responses. So I would suggest just try out the 14$ membership and be prepared to cancel after 8-10 days. I had some luck on HornyMatches, even though they are notorious scammers. But if any of you gals get horny enuff, hit me on my space.com/kanzu601 or tonyrashaad on fb

    I think you guys are doing it all wrong – perhaps it’s your approach. Being a girl, I am having a great time on XXXblackbook. I usually only set up meetings with guys once or twice a month, but lately, it’s been hard to limited myself. I get a crap-load of emails and it takes me a while to get through them all. Maybe that’s the problem. Seriously, I have about 1000 unopened emails that I many never get around to. Don’t give up – I think us girls will miss out on your company. SNIFF ;(
    As for scammers, you are going to find them on every dating website out there, even ones like match.com. You just have to be smart about it.

      well i did join, paid for a month, i met one who was real, and she was my first encounter. BUT all the other messages, emails i get have to be scammers, i’ve left my email address, not my main one, for select few who have responded more than once to me to get ahold of me, and yet to get a single response…it’s been about 1-2 weeks. like i said the first one i met was from adult friend finder and she got me to join black book, but we have eachothers email addresses and talk cam and chat regularly. we hooked up a few times, but i’m married so didn’t want to get carried away with it. i like meeting new FWB but haven’t gotten responses…so whatdo you suggest? i have a profile pic, no body shots, but on my profile i say i have more pics if you wanna see just ccontact me. i’m handsome, nice athletic fit body..
