10 Best Adult Affiliate Programs

Hello there Sea Changers. Welcome back to my series of program lists to assist those of you looking to fund your sea change with affiliate marketing. Today we are going to take a walk on the wild side to look at my 10 best adult affiliate programs to hook up with in 2020. This niche is obviously not to everyone’s taste however if viewed from a purely business side of things, it is an extremely popular and lucrative online market. Whether this be due to the fact that people prefer the anonymity of online sales or they enjoy the safety of being in their home surroundings, it is certainly a market that may be well worth checking out…

Before we begin however, I am conscious that there are a number of different areas or sub niches within this subject hence the quantity of affiliate programs to choose from may be just as large. So how have I picked my best 10? Well… I really just wanted to give you a good cross section of what is out there so I did some searching around and checked a few out and chose them by looking at:

  • What they offer
  • Commission rates
  • Payment terms
  • Cookie duration
  • Application processes
  • Affiliate/Marketing materials provided

Before we start however, let’s have a look at what I mean by the term ‘adult products’ and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

Note: This post contains images not suitable for children. If you are offended by these sorts of images then please click here to return to the home page.

What do we mean by adult products?

I know this is only one area of the adult industry but did you know that by 2026, the global sex toy market is expected to rise to a worth of around $52.7 billion USD per year. That is a lot of happy people!! And considering that there are over 180,000 online searches undertaken online per month for the term ‘sex toys’, I think it might just be something that could make a good little online business.

As I have mentioned above, there is quite a lot that we could look into when it comes to adult products so for this post, I have tried to cover a good cross section of adult affiliate program options including:

  • Sex Toys
  • Lingerie and costumes
  • Personal/intimate items
  • Safe sex items
  • Education

And of course anything else you can think of when it comes to the online adult market… So, if you are looking to set up an affiliate business in this space, let’s talk about your intended audience…

What can affiliate marketers promote?

There are essentially no real barriers to what affiliate marketers can promote when it comes to adult entertainment products. There are however some things to be aware of as you run your eye over adult affiliate program possibilities that may suit your site. These are:

  1. Know your audience, some are looking for specifics and want the best whilst others are hoping to just get their products on a budget. Choose your affiliate sites accordingly.
  2. In an industry where we are talking about intimate products, purchasers will not take risks if they don’t trust you or your affiliate site – or fear that you may put their health and safety at risk. Make sure the programs you choose are reputable and have good recourse options if the purchaser is not happy.
  3. Those purchasing as a new experience will need to know exactly what they are getting and that the products you are promoting will fit in with their requirements. Make sure your programs can provide the products to back up the information that you are covering.

That said, stats show that people will spend money on adult products online if it can make their lives easier so as long as you are meeting their needs and solving problems, then you are on the right track.

Legalities

The adult industry is one that is often exploited by unethical and/or illegal activity. Take care to ensure that the companies that you are dealing with are regulated and working within the laws and regulations of their operational jurisdictions. Also, note that some countries outlaw adult products altogether so always check the requirements within the market that you intend to operate within.

Ok, with that aside, let’s check out the 10 programs I have found below:

1. adultshop.com

Adult Affiliate Programs - Adultshop.com

Let’s start with an all in one site in adultshop.com. This is a large adult product site providing access to over 1000 products including:

  • Sex Toys

  • Games and novelty items
  • Romance and seduction items
  • Essentials and maintenance items
  • Lubricants
  • LGBTQI items
  • Movies

This is a great site for affiliates as it allows you to cover all aspects of adult entertainment, intimacy and romance in the one spot. In addition to this, there is a great blog covering such topics as safe use of equipment, dating and sexual behaviours providing some good information for your readers and blog post ideas for you. There is certainly enough here to build an affiliate site around.

  • Sex toys
  • Sexy Lingerie – including plus size options

Adult Affiliate Programs - Love Honey stripe

The list above really doesn’t do the site justice however there really is something for everybody and certainly enough to base an adult related affiliate business around. And as with adultshop.com above there is also a great ‘advice’ section incorporating a blog, podcast and educational information as well.

4. Geeky Sex Toys

Adult Affiliate Programs - Geeky Sex Toys

Ok, so how do I explain this one? Imagine that you were such a fan of the marvel comics that you wanted a sex toy in the shape of Thor’s hammer. That is what Geeky Sex Toys can provide. Their main catalogue is similar to the first two sites listed here with products outlined in the graphic below. In regards to geekiness however, they provide their products in the following categories (all punned of course):

  • Doctor Screw
  • Sci-Fi
  • Fantasy
  • Halloween
  • Star Toys
  • DickPool
  • Super Heroes
  • The Indulgers
  • Orgasms of the Galaxy
  • Game of Moans
  • Pokemoan
  • Crypto Currency
  • Hentai
  • Pride

Adult Affiliate Programs - Geeky Sex Toys stripe

Even though there is a large catalogue of products, I am not sure it could sustain an affiliate business on its own. However I would definitely see it added to any generalist business, gift, special occasion (stag, hens nights etc.) or if you could word it right, an adult related fantasy site as well.

5. Yandy.com

Adult Affiliate Programs - Yandy.com

Now we will start to narrow our focus a little starting with adult fashion and Yandy.com. This is possibly more of a fashion site than an adult one perse however it does focus heavily on the sexy side of things with a good range of:

  • Lingerie – including plus size
  • Bras
  • Hosiery
  • Panties
  • Costumes
  • Accessories – including toys, whips, handcuffs, cosmetics and more

And as with Wild Secrets above, there are some other fashion items on this site to allow for cross selling opportunities to be incorporated including:

Adult Affiliate Programs - Yandy.com stripe

This site is probably not one that you would build an entire affiliate marketing business around if your site is aimed purely at the adult niche. However, it would be a great companion/add on to just about any adult, lingerie or fashion related niche possible – and maybe even for those dealing with dance related sites as well.

Adult Affiliate Programs - Sex Ed Rescue stripe

To be honest, I would advise that this site be added to any adult affiliate business incorporating any of the products listed within this post so that when the time comes, users can educate their children on their safe and appropriate use in an industry that can be so easily exploited.

Amazon Associates

Alternatively, should you wish to set up your site up with a range from a few different brands or companies on the same site then you can do so via Amazon. Amazon provides access to a good range of adult products and has a fairly good affiliate program as well. So if you wish, join the Amazon Associates program, locate the best products relevant to your site within Amazon itself and you can post links on your own site as per below:

Amazon’s commission rates are not too bad and some prefer this avenue due to the sheer amount of traffic and trustworthiness that comes with a company site of this size.

How to find your own affiliate programs

As stated earlier, by outlining the sites above I have really just tried to give you a good cross section of the types of programs that are out there by listing the really good ones in each ‘category’. That does not mean that you cannot find affiliate programs that better suit what it is that you are trying to do within this space especially as I could never even begin to cover every adult related requirement or sub niche in the one post. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online.

All you need to do is enter “affiliate: niche type” into your search engine (substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell). The example below is for sex toy affiliate programs:

Adult Affiliate Programs - affiliates

There are adult related affiliate programs for everything else that we have listed at the top of this page as well – you will just need to have a look around until you find one or two that suit your site. Once you have completed your searches, you can look through and find programs that:

  • Relate to your niche/problems that you are solving.
  • Have quality products – your brand can be severely damaged if you promote poor quality products.
  • Have solid payment and customer service arrangement.
  • Pay decent commissions.
  • Have good testimonials covering commission payouts and quality of product.

In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – don’t take this step lightly or you will be rejected. Affiliate programs will generally want to know:

  • Your website name.
  • Traffic levels.
  • Why you want to join – (so I can make money by selling your flavoured condoms is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Conclusion

So… There are 10 of the best adult affiliate programs to hook up with in 2020. I hope it has been helpful for you as you commence your own adult based affiliate marketing business and as usual, please do not hesitate to comment below if you have any questions, need some advice or have any experiences to share. Oh, and especially comment if you have any experience with these, or any other programs as well.

Until next time

Have fun
