Final Word on InstaBang
The world of hookup sites can be confusing. Fortunately, at least during our testing, Instabang proved to be a solid and effective hookup site that can help you avoid needless confusion. Yes, it requires a paid membership, but the rewards that users get after joining more than makes it worthwhile. We would rate Instabang as VERY GOOD.

— in-Depth InstaBang Review —
When you are single, you will be in one of two mindsets. You will either be thinking about settling down and finding someone to spend the rest of your life with, or you will be thinking about enjoying the carnal pleasures that the single life has to offer. If currently, you are more inclined to choose the latter — good for you! You deserve to have some fun. However, wanting to engage in a playboy lifestyle and actually doing so are two different things.
The biggest limitation to hooking up is quite simply the difficulty that exists in locating like-minded people wanting to enjoy the same type of adult-oriented fun that you do. You know that they’re out there — it’s only a question of how to find them. Online hookup sites are an obvious answer. However, you then are faced with another question; which site to use?
What you want in a hookup site is simple. You want one that has real women as members, that has a large engagement rate (we mean communication, not marriage), and that you can rely upon to deliver results regularly. Recently we came across an online hookup site that on the surface appeared promising. It is called Instabang.com. Instabang takes an honest approach by not attempting to hide its true purpose. It doesn’t sugarcoat its mission — it exists to get two people desirous of a candid and casual sexual encounter together. If we were only scoring sites for honesty of purpose, Instabang would get an A-plus. Of course, you want to know more about Instabang — how it works, what to expect, etc. We evaluated the site for a period of four days and these are the results that we obtained. This is our Instabang review.
— Trust and Reliability —
Many online hookup sites have “administrative” offices in far-flung overseas locations with operational servers in equally distant parts of the world. You never know who you are actually dealing with. In the case of Instabang, it is part of the Global Personal Media Group, a company that has been in continuous operation for nearly two decades in the online dating industry. It is headquartered and operated in the U.K. and U.S. respectively, that means that everything, from payment gateways to privacy protocols, to consumer protection guidelines, etc — all follow strict U.S. and U.K. standards. This, for us, is extremely significant. It immediately alleviates those concerns that some of you have when you don’t know who is behind your hookup site. It allows you to focus on what matters most — finding a hookup!
— First Impression of InstaBang —
Be advised, the welcome page of Instabang contains tiled images of some of its members. Due to the nature of the site, there will be times when some of these images will contain explicit poses and nudity. While we didn’t mind — and we’re certain that you won’t mind either — just be warned in case you plan to open the page while in a location where you are susceptible to prying eyes.
The purpose of the welcome page is primarily to get new users to register — so aside from admiring the tiled images, all you can do is sign up. Initial registration is free and the process is fast and easy. All you need to do is to follow the directions posted in the registration box. With each successive click, you will be asked for basic information, such as your gender, location, age, etc. You will need to provide a valid email address. It is important that you don’t use a fake address, as a verification email will be sent to you containing a confirmation link that you must click on to validate your registration.

— The Members Area —
After completing your registration, you are redirected to the members’ area. We found this section of the site to be well laid out. It is not cluttered like other hookup sites. It makes it easier to find what you’re looking for with intuitive navigation located on the top bar.
There aren’t a complex set of features on Instabang, but in our opinion, that’s a good thing. They provide search, online now, video chat, galleries and live cam sections. The search feature is divided into general search, new members, and those who are online at that moment. This type of search differentiation is quite helpful. In our test, we were able to engage instantaneously with several people each time we used the “online now” option. Some of those whom we met online were willing to consider meeting in person, others were interested in private playtime via the video chat feature. Either way, it was nice to see that results were the norm, not the exception.
— More on the Video Chat Feature —
We were quite impressed by the video chat feature. Originally we had thought it was only useful to augment the level of communication with another user. The reality is that the feature is far more robust. You can actually setup your own video chat room and invite other members to join.
Likewise, you can review a list of video chat rooms created by other members and visit them. Some are just video-based “meet and greets,” others are for some serious video sex play.
This dual-purposing of Instabang’s video chat is terrific. You can use it to seal the deal on a hookup, or you can use it for some old fashioned video sex chat — it’s a win-win all the way around.
— What About the Galleries Section? —
The galleries section is a visual way to glance through the vast number of active members on Instabang. You can filter the images by gender, that way you only see what you want to see. While it is more efficient to use the main search function with its more detailed search criteria to find matches, it is still fun to peruse through image after sexy image of potential hookups.
— Cost of InstaBang—
Anyone can register for free on Instabang. The free version allows you to enter the members’ area and get a feel for the navigation and potential that this hookup site has to offer. In order to be able to send or to respond to messages — inclusive of the all important video chats — you must be a paying member. Due to Instabang’s powerful search engine, excellent dual-purpose video chat feature and the speed and reliability of its platform, we feel that the paid version is well worth it. A monthly membership has a cost of $34.95; you can also opt to pay $80 for a full year of membership, or $69.95 for six months of membership. Trials are also available so you can gauge for yourself whether or not InstaBang is the right choice.
