The Best Amateur Webcam Shows?
I was thrilled when asked to do a Streamate Review this week. This is one of the earliest webcam chat site, Streamate.com has a rich history and is considered the pioneer in the world of live cam entertainment. Although I have been visiting this site for only a few months, I have gathered enough information to give you readers an honest and unbiased review. With over a thousand LIVE active models, it is pretty easy to get sucked in the website looking for fun. Fun fact, there are over 40,000 webcam models registered on Streamate.
What’s Streamate got?
It’s not secret, most of the models on Streamate are amateurs teasing and masturbating in front of the cam in the safe confines of their homes. However, there are quite a few professional models too and some top class porn stars who can give you a run for your money. At first glance, the categories may seem inadequate but you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you go to the advanced search. In all honesty, I was overwhelmed by the variety of options I could choose from!
Like diversity? No worries! Streamate will let you pick from gals, guys, couples and trans- it’s all up to you. Furthermore, you’ll be able to nit-pick from a wide milieu- be it body type, orientation, features, different age groups and an array of languages.
The amateur cam gals make a considerable amount of money by the way of tips. Above the free rooms are the exclusive private chat rooms where all the exotic action is. The business model is a good one with the models making quite a lot of money by receiving tips. Though you end up paying a neat sum to have your requests fulfilled, you can hang in the free chat for free. Streamate also offer free photo galleries and full bio where you can get additional information on pretty much every single model. The icing on the cake is, of course, the free video gallery!
User-friendly design gets 2 thumbs up!
Launched in 2003, Streamate has stuck to their basic layout without undergoing drastic changes. (Update 6/13/2019: we just saw a new version of the site, the new layout looks amazing and will be out of Beta very soon). Because of it, it has kind of become the industry standard. You find a lot of other cam sites emulating Streamate. There’s nothing jarring about this site, including the well thought out color scheme. In spite of all this, they manage to grab your eyeballs and more to the seductive tit bits! One of the better features is the ‘About Me’ section where the sexy models get to introduce themselves. They give you enough info- their age, sexual preferences, acts they like to perform, etc. which helps you choose better.
There’s an area for member comments too and this is a good feature as you can gauge the models by the reviews they have received. (Yes, just like on Amazon) Then there’s the ‘My Schedule’ section where the webcam model can choose to detail her schedule for the week so you know when to come back for more. The ‘My Photos’ section will show you sexy pics of the models. You can see and get even sexier, explicit pics of your fave models in the ‘My Paid Photo’ section- obviously not free. Last but not least, you have the video section. Here too you have the option to buy a kinky video if you want one. The chat itself is classified into sections – Free Video Chat, Private Chat, Gold Shows, Exclusive Chat, and Discounted Block Sessions.
Is Streamate pocket-friendly?
Streamate, although not a free live amateur webcam site, has a load of freebies for unregistered users and that is saying a lot. So there IS a free chat.
The prices of the paid services are generally reasonable, the average private chat show cost works out to $2.99 per minute but can also drop to about a dollar a minute. (cheaper than a strip club and you don’t get to smell like Cheap Perfume) The highest slab has a few pros charging a whopping $12.00 per minute, can you believe it? So, you see, there’s a lot in between, decided by what exactly you are looking for. But generally, private or exclusive cam chats come at a dollar per minute. Other types of money exchange on Streamate is when you make a purchase or use Gold currency. The payment methods accepted on Streamate are Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and PayPal.
Time for the verdict!
Streamate.com certainly knows the tricks of their trade and are running an excellent cam site. With a wide array of fetishes that are offered, it probably holds an edge over other sites. An additional advantage this site has is the “free’ area. that can be accessed 24/7 without registering. The pricing, too, is on the friendlier side. And with a cap on daily spending, a user does not tend to overspend inadvertently. Streamate may not necessarily be the number one live cam site (debatable) but they are definitely up there as a possible contender.
To sum it up, the site is very user-friendly, quite affordable and the models utterly sexy- they give you your money’s worth!
