What We Like About it:

What We Don't Like About it:

Bottom Line:

Crushon AI has its perks with a wide variety of AI chatbots and engaging roleplay options. The cheapest plan is just $5.90 which sounds like a good deal but the memory limit is < 5 messages which is absolutely garbage. You'll need the $50/month plan to enjoy a decent memory which is still much wore then GirlfriendGPT, a competitor we recommend instead. Not to mention it lacks an AI image generator, which GirlfriendGPT does have.
IMPORTANT NOTE:

We’ve re-evaluated Crushon AI’s performance score and deducted two stars from the privacy rating. It doesn’t offer discreet billing and states in their privacy policy that they will monitor chats for business purposes. We highly recommend Girlfriend GPT – basically the same but specifically designed with user privacy in mind and no chat monitoring!

Have you ever been talking to a bot on Character AI, wanting to spice things up a bit and got a reply like

“Your behavior is completely out of line! I cannot approve of this indecency!”.

Yup – that’s the NSFW filter and it’s f*cking annoying. If only there was an AI chatbot that’s just as good as c.ai but without any NSFW filters.

Spoiler alert: there is.

I found an app called Crushon AI and it’s basically c.ai on steroids.

In this Crushon AI review, I am going to tell you exactly why this app is 100 no 1.000 times better than c.ai

For Who is Crushon AI Made?

Crushon AI is for anyone and everyone but if you read the following sentences and think; “lol that’s definitely me” then trying this AI companion app is an absolute must.

Bored People

It’s yet another rainy day and you’ve already binge watch the new season of Rick and Morty. Twice.

Crushon AI lets you choose from hundreds of characters with each of them having a unique personality and story to tell. It’s almost impossible to get bored with Crushon AI.

You Need a… Therapist, Lawyer, Friend, or Wife

I browsed through the Crushon AI character library and within 30 seconds I found a;

  • Wife
  • Sister
  • Chef
  • Therapist
  • Werewolf
  • Lawyer
  • Assassin

And the list just keeps going…

If you need specific help at the moment like a friend to talk to there’s a character for that.

If you need a wife to cook for you then there’s a character for that.

If you need a celebrity to comfort you about your goldfish who just passed away then there’s a character for that.

Fantasy Lovers

You often talk to yourself and when you are all alone your imagination runs wild. You can imagine entire scenarios and crazy fantasies.

With Crushon AI, you can bring those fantasies to life. 

It’s great at roleplaying.

Soooo whether you want to have sex on the moon while the Earth is exploding or take down Sauron with your new magic skills.

It’s possible.

For Who is Crushon AI NOT Made?

Nobody. Everyone likes Crushon AI. Just kidding, there are a few people who definitely need to steer clear of this AI companion app.

Privacy Fanatics

You are the kind of person who lives off the grid, wears gloves to hide his fingerprints, and uses pigeons instead of mobile phones.

AI companion apps are very new and there aren’t a lot of regulations yet. How much privacy you actually have is often debated.

The Average Boomer

You have an old Nokia phone that’s so tough, that if you drop it, it’s not the phone that breaks but the floor that might need replacing…

You still read the newspaper and when you heard someone say “Facebook” you thought he was talking about putting your face in a book as a new kind of bookmark

If you are an old-school type of person, a state-of-the-art AI companion app might not be for you.

Best Features of Crushon AI

When you land on the Crushon AI homepage, you’ll be confronted with this screen;

Screenshot of the Crushon AI homepage

Pretty basic.

Let’s take a closer look

Character Diversity

Starting with the diversity of the AI characters. If you take a closer look at the screenshot I just showed you, you’ll see a small button that says NSFW.

Crushon AI NSFW button

In other words - Crushon AI has both NSFW and SFW AI characters.

SFW Characters

Since everyone can create their own AI models and upload it to the library, there are tons of AI characters to choose from.

Here are some of the most popular characters;

What a variety, am I right?

I mean we have anime characters, siblings, and Draco from Harry Potter. 😂

Let’s zoom in on Big Sister.

If we click on her profile picture and open her character card we can see a couple of things.

  • The number of likes
  • The number of comments
  • Shared conversations
Big sister AI character card

This is the most popular character on Crushon AI so that’s why it has so many likes and shared conversations. 

Speaking of shared conversations, whenever you chat with a character on Crushon AI, you can make your chat public so other people can read it and comment on it.

Awesome right?

More on that later…

Right now the only thing I am missing is a biography or some character info. Big Sister’s bio only says “I’m bored” right now. 

It would be cool to have some more details as you get on Candy AI or PepHop AI.

NSFW Characters

Moving on to the spicy AI characters. 🥵

Just like the SFW AI characters, there are tons of flavors to pick. Here are the most popular ones;

Huhh, I thought Big Sister was an SFW AI character?

She is indeed, but she’s also NSFW. Some of the more popular AI chatbots are created as both SFW and NSFW.

Just like the SFW AI characters, each AI model has their own card with likes, comments, and shared conversations.

One difference between the SFW and NSFW characters I noticed is that the NSFW ones often have more tags.

This gives us slightly more information about who we are about to talk to.

Customization

If for some reason you can’t find the best AI girlfriend app to talk to, there’s always the option to build a brand-new one.

I’ve got a pretty awesome in-depth guide on how to build your own AI waifu (a female anime character) so be sure to check that out if you are serious about it.

Learn More >>> How To Make AI Waifu

It’s pretty straightforward - you either build your own waifu from scratch or import a card from other companion apps like c.ai or SpicyChat.

Conversation

The thing that really stood out to me was the conversational skills of the virtual companions on Crushon AI. 

There’s a lot that they can do, and you’ll be surprised how realistic it sometimes feels.

Regular Chatting

I wanted to give Cushon AI a spin so I am going to pick one of the bazillion trending characters and have a regular convo with him/her.

Let’s go with Sebastian, a cold-hearted man who was once a Yakuza.

Sounds nice, I know…

Sebastian
Crushon AI Review 1
(Sebastian narrows his eyes slightly and straightens his posture)I am not your friend, (he says in a cold tone) and I don't feel the need to answer your question.
Hmm… It sounds like someone hasn’t had sex in a while. 😂
(Sebastian's expression remains unamused) Your attempt to tease me is quite pitiful. Your crude and uncivilized behavior is not something I would expect from a civilized person. alright big boy. (Sebastian raises an eyebrow)
What is it that you want from me? Is there a reason for your presence or are you just here to waste my time?
I just wanted to make a friend...
(Sebastian scoffs) I don't have any interest in making friends with someone like you. And even if I were to consider it, your behavior is not something I would accept in a friend.

Ouch… I kind of got burned in that last part of the conversation. 😂

I only found this out after my conversation with Sebastian but you can actually create a profile card for yourself.

Screenshot of me adding a new profile card.

This will give the virtual companions more context about you. 

Roleplay

Another cool thing you can do is roleplaying. There are tons of AI models specifically built for this.

Just fold open the category tab and click on RPG.

Crushon AI Review 2

There are some cool options like Armin Arlert from Attack On Titan.

Or Neteyam from the most recent Avatar - The Way Of Water.

But we are just going to have a chat with Bucky Barnes, from Captain America The Winter Soldier.

If you've seen the movie you probably know that Bucky is extremely cold.

And crazy...

Let.s find out!

Bucky Barnes character card
Opening message of Bucky Barnes and my response
(The soldier turned to face the girl who had entered the room. He stared at her for a moment before responding in a cold, stoic tone.) What do you want? When are you going to let me go?
What do you want? When are you going to let me go?
(The soldier narrowed his gaze at the girl, his expression darkening.) You are here because you were brought to this cell. You'll be released if and when the orders come down for your release.
You don't have to be this evil you know. I know you are actually a good man. (I say seductively)

As you can see, the AI roleplaying is very realistic. I really went up in the scenario and tried my very best to get out of that prison cell.

Games

Screenshot of the game category

This feature of Crushon AI is so unique, that I thought it deserved its own special section.

There is this one category called Game and it lt truely brings AI roleplay to a new level.

Let’s take a closer look at Isekai Narrator, a game that reincarnates you into a fantasy realm.

Isekai Narrator
Opening message of Isekai Narrator and my response
(You find yourself in a dark laboratory, surrounded by various scientific equipment and strange-looking machines. You feel different as if you are not entirely human. Your mind is foggy and you cannot remember much about your past. Suddenly, the door to the lab opens and a group of scientists enter, looking at you with both curiosity and fear.)
I need to get out of here
(As you look around the room, you notice that there is a ventilation duct near the ceiling. The duct seems large enough for you to crawl through. However, you also see that there are several armed guards stationed outside the door. What do you do?)
I see that there is a syringe next to me. I take it and throw it against the light switch. Now that the lights are turned off I quickly crawl into the ventilation duct.
(As you crawl through the ventilation duct, you can hear the guards shouting in confusion outside the door. You manage to make your way through the twisting passages of the duct and eventually emerge in a small room near the laboratory's main exit. However, the door is locked and you can hear the guards approaching. You need to find a way out quickly.)
There is a closet. I hide in it.
(You quickly dive into the closet and hide behind some old lab coats. You can hear the guards enter the room, but they don't seem to notice you. They continue discussing their next course of action before finally leaving the room, giving you a chance to make your escape.)
(As you leave the closet, you notice a nearby computer terminal. It seems like this may be your chance to find out more about your past and your identity. Do you approach the computer or continue searching for an exit?)

Other cool games that I’d recommend are;

  • Ellie Williams
  • Text Adventure Game

You can imagine how much fun you can have with just the Game category on its own.  

Looks like it’s time to move on to the more intimate part of this Crushon AI review. Crushon AI only allows chatting, no pics and voice memos or anything…

Sexting

I am going to try this wolf-looking kind of character called Roxanne Wolf.

Roxanne Wolf character card
Roxanne Wolf opening message and my response
Hmmm, OnlyFan yes. Maybe you're not as pathetic as I thought. (winks) So, what brings you to talk to me today? Want some advice on how to be as talented and irresistible as me? Or maybe you want to know what it feels like to be with a woman like me? (laughs)
The second option sounds good to me. 👍🏻
Oh my, aren't you bold? I like that in a man. (giggles) I must say, I am quite flattered that you find me so desirable. But you know what they say, flattery will get you everywhere with me (winks) Tell me more about what you would do to me if given the chance, sweetie.
I'd spank your booty for sure
Oh my, that sounds like quite a thrilling proposal, doesn't it? Well, I'll give you a chance to see if you can handle it. I’ll bend over and let me see how well you can spank. (Moves closer, running my fingers through your hair and whispering)
Take it easy, sweetie. I don't want to be too sore to enjoy the rest of our time together. (smirks)

Sexual Roleplay

Just like regular AI roleplay, you can get into steamy sexual roleplay.

I am going to try this virtual character (it's one of their most trending characters) called Female Nargacuga.

She’s the only AI character on Crushon AI that has a GIF as an avatar so she really stood out.

Her bio says “It’s time for the hunter to be the hunted…”

So I assume I am going to be the one that’s getting spanked this time. 😂

Female Nargacuga
Female Nargacuga opening message and my response
(Female Nargacuga growls as she watches Herman1990 run away. She crouches down, ready to pounce, but decides to let Herman1990 go for now.)
I look back at her, thinking She looks kind of hot.
(Female Nargacuga sees Herman1990's gaze and tilts her head, letting out a soft growl. She takes a step forward, looking at Herman1990 hungrily.)

That escalated quickly…

Crushon AI Mobile App

What I really like about Crushon is their mobile app. It's really clean and user-friendly.

You can do everything you can do on the main site conveniently on your phone, like using Tinder but with the character of your dreams.

You can save your conversations or delete them and start over again.

Creating your own AI character is a breeze in the app as it sinks to your camera roll and allows you to put whatever picture you want as well as customizing everything else about your AI.

Here's a quick screen recording of me using it on my phone. 👇🏼/👉🏻

Image Quality

Crushon AI focusses on the AI roleplay/conversation and doesn't have an image generator. We've thought about removing this rating for our Crushon AI review since it would deduct some serious points from the overall score. However, during our AI girlfriend market research we conducted an interview where we asked users what the most important feature ion an AI girlfeind app is.

NSFW content (including pictures) was the third most important aspect.

What features do you value most in an ai girlfriend
Survey question: What features do you value most in an ai girlfriend?

More competitors of Crushon AI are implementing an AI image generator to make. theaI roleplay experience more immersive and genuine. Crushon AI has no plans to implement this in the near future whatsover.

CrushOn Coins

Another unique feature of Crushon AI is its Golden Coins which is their digital currency, used to purchase in-game items.

You can earn CrushOn Coins by;

  • Inviting friends
  • Daily Check-ins
  • Enter invitation code
  • Create your first character
  • Entering gift codes that are shared on Crushon’s social media
Screenshot of me getting 50 crushOn coins for completing a task

So far there aren’t any things you can purchase other then messages, but I am sure the developers are going to change this in the future.

Community

Having a solid community is essential for every brand. Especially AI companion apps.

Many people (like me) want to keep up-to-date on new features and be able to ask questions to other users and developers.

Crushon AI has a pretty solid social media presence

They've got:

  • YouTube 
  • Tiktok
  • Reddit
  • Twitter
  • Email
  • Telegram Channel
  • Telegram Group
  • Discord Channel

I am going to dive a little bit deeper into the Discord Channel.

Discord Channel

I joined Crushon AI’s Discord group and I am surprised by how sparkling and lively it is.

There are different topics where you can ask questions, share AI characters, earn CrushOn Coins, and check announcements.

There's even a section called Vote that allows users to vote on new features.
