So after years of going through regular porn sites, I finally got sucked into cam sites. Well, that's probably because of MFC, with its easy to use interface and nice features. Pretty much every cam site I've been on has been a mess except this one, layout wise.
There are a ton of hot girls on this site, and it can be a nice change to get them to do what you really want to see, well, that is if you take them to a private show anyway. In free chat you won't see too much, even if you tip and in group shows (the cheaper way to get a real show) you will be fighting with everyone else in the show to see what you want. And shows are EXPENSIVE. 30 tokens a minute for group show, 60 for private and even more for "True" private which means others can't spy on the show. And token packages range as follows:
My Free Cams always has had a somewhat decent tokens (aka credits) spending log : the last 100 usages, with the date, type of usage (tip, group, spy, private), recipient model and amount. Now theyíve taken this several steps further and offer a full log of all your token spending history with the time you spent the tokens (up to the second you spent them). Mine goes back to the first tip I ever made the day I joined.
In my experience, this is quite rare among cam sites. I remember a site where I just got a list of the names of the performers Iíd had a private show with during the last 15 days with no information of when or how much I had spent during that private. Another site has detailed logs of the privates youíve had (with the minutes and seconds you spent in private) but only for the last 6 months.
Whatís interesting here is that, given the tabular way the data is presented on MFC, itís not difficult to get some insight into your habits with a bit of copy-pasting and basic spreadsheet skills. The model you spend the most on or what do you spend the most on (tips, group, etc).
Even though thereís little more they could do in terms of token logs (Iím guessing the statistics I suggested with the appropriate pie charts or a CSV download format option are unlikely to be implemented), it would also be worth including in the logs the token packages bought, with purchase times and package amount.
Solo girl with a ton of personality. Lelu is warm and welcoming to her members. It's a "mom and pop" operation that knows if it's gonna compete it's gotta be different. To Lelu that is awesome customer service. She works very hard to treat you like an individual which is rare (at least in my experience).
Lelu's updated the video section. You can no download videos in clips. (I've been away from dial-up so long I forget how handy it can be to have small files).
Also downloads are now available in .wmv format (.mov and .mp4 still available, as before)
The pix section has also been cleaned up a little bit - but these tweeks are minor and don't change functionality.
Lastly, the addition of the VNA cam network is nice, but in my experience is awfully glitchy. I haven't been able to tune into one of Lelu's shows, yet, but the other girls that I've checked out seemed to be plagued by hesitating audio and video. I know this is on the cam network's side, and I know VNA is a big player in this space. Hopefully the problem was on my side, or will be worked out soon.
Still lovin' Lelu Love! Soon as I can I'll post another review.
I love this site! I know I seem like the ultimate fan boy; but this site continues to exceed my expectations.
Lelu has recently updated her video section making navigation and commenting easier. Also the UI has changed a little making it clearer which file formats are available at which quality (the HD videos look great in 1280X720
Photo section also saw upgrades with ability to select image size. Of course zip downloads and slideshow mode are still available.
I like amateur sites. Every time I hear someone complain about an amateur site its something the Lelu excels at.
I love this blond chick - she is for real and puts her all into it and I watch and always fantasize am with a blonde debutant or sorority girl from down south. She loves to wear lingerie, heels and stockings and really gets into it - nothing fake here - she is also HOT and very pretty. Plus it's hilarious at times. She has a sense of humor and I get a kick out of the noises and expressions her husband or boy friend blurts out while he is giving it to her - oh,oh, uuuhhh he goes -especially when she is on fours which I think is her number one thing. Nice legs too and lots of kissing and affection which is really lacking in the porn world. She is also real hot and sassy as she speaks to you in her vids - she doesn't have a princess attitude and she is giving a great public service as she invites us into her bedroom.
Desirae seems like the total slut cheating wifey. My GF wants me to join a slut cheating wifey or MILF site for her pleasure. And mine of course. Anyone joined lately and do you think itís a good slut cheating wifey site? The previews look good but I rather hear first hand from a previous member. Desirae looks like the type but I want to make sure itís worth a monthly.
overall I like this site. The girl is really hot, the price is reasonable and the videos look decent. My major complaint is that there is a download limit. Even though Thebestporn.com says there isnt one, there is. I have been a customer for 2 days and both days after approx. 3gb of video downloaded, it kicks you out of the members area and you cant get back in. In my opinion this is really lame. I paid for the site, I should be able to download nonstop until my subscription expires.
Desirae has launched a new site dirtydes.com The focus is on kink and more "raunchy" sex. Hopefully the nice folks at TBP can get a fact sheet up. I'm hoping the makes both sites available to members - or if the included cam show is the same as her current site - or filmed just for this site.
Des is the 1st site I ever joined so I always have a soft spot for her. I've got to try out the new site - but may wait a little bit till the content fills in some. :)
+ Excellent interface, with the best category search of any webcam site I've tried.
+ A fantastic selection of models of all varieties, as well as couples girl/girl, guy/girl, groups & guys alone.
+ Joining a models 'fan club' gets you a good discount.
+ Credit holders are permitted to watch pre-recorded preview videos and 'mad video competition' entries.
+ Most of the girls have fast cams with sound.
- Customer service isn't great.
- Some of the girls are very good at wasting your time and money.
- For most of the girls, English is a second language.
- Imlive is very addictive! It is far more expensive than even the priciest pay-site -30 minutes can cost up to £80.00
- The bonus credits are very stingy and new members seem to get the best deal! A customer becomes a 'Silver member' after buying credit a few times, then a 'Gold Member', and with each change in status, one has a higher minimum spend and a feeble increase in bonus credit.
Imlive was always expensive, but recent changes to billing for UK customers -$1 per credit previously now costs closer to £1 per credit, means they have lost me as a customer.
They have an impressive roster of over a 100 porn stars who do live sex video chats. Huge names among them, like Tera Patrick, Belladonna or Jill Kelly to name just three.
Not all of them appear on a regular basis. I believe no more than 20-30% of those listed are actively doing shows but some of them have been online quite often during the last month. Anita Blond, Anita Dark, Aria Giovanni, Jill Kelly, Kylie G Worthy, Martina Warren, Sunny Leone, Vanessa Blue or Whitney Stevens are just a few that will probably sound familiar and I found online at least a couple times. At one point, I saw up to 7 porn stars online simultaneously but usually there's no more than a couple.
Average price is 10 credits per minute, with the big names usually charging a bit more. It's worse for European users: regional pricing makes 1 credit = 1 USD = 1 EUR. Sunny Leone (14 credits) and Jill Kelly (13 credits) were the most expensive ones I saw. I just don't want to imagine how much does Tera Patrick charge.
I'm Live also schedules monthly "free" shows with porn stars (free for those who have I'm Live credits). There's one scheduled for February 18th (next Wednesday) with Katja Kassin and Amber Rayne. As usual, they will be added to the roster but who knows how often they'll come back to do pay per minute shows.
Today I had some free time and signed in my Streamate account to see who's online. I visited a model's free chat room (model's name is '' Xxdarkpanter4u '') said '' hello, how are you? '' and got banned, LOL, well some Streamate models seem to have a brain damage or something, at my opinion, or at least they kick or ban people from chat rooms without any reason and no one checks their actions to members . Probably some of them think that their members are too ugly or something ... what can I say I can not explain it though I will surely cancel my account, LOL.
Just some advises for the site for the ones who doesn't know it.
Streamate camgirls are plenty expensive, so get results promptly or disconnect promptly.
I tell the girls before going private exactly what they must be showing the instant that the private window opens. I make sure she understands before going private. If I don't see it from the start, I disconnect.
Otherwise they drag their feet once in private session, and try to distract you with conversation and endless strip-teasing
Live Jasmin started offering a Fan Club functionality about a year ago. Most models have it and Iíve used it a couple times but I find itís very lacking. Reading members comments in the siteís forums, I got the impression few members find any use to it. Fan Club monthly cost is 19.99 credits (19.99 USD, 19.99 EUR, 19.99 GBP) but some of the options are also offered when you become a Premium Member (15 credits every two weeks).
Anyway, here are some of the promised features and what you really get:
- Half price on the recorded videos posted by that model. Probably the most interesting feature but few models have videos and you still pay quite a hefty per-minute price. Other members may also see the videos but at the regular price.
- ďHi-resĒ pictures of the model. This is funny. All images are 1024x768 regardless of the orientation of the original image. This means all images end up with some degree of letterboxing, specially painful in portrait ones where more than 50% of the image ends up being side black bars. You may download them one by one but you must click at least three times to get each image.
- Interview with model. All models get the same generic questions. Depends on what the model is willing to say and how fluent she is English.
- That modelís schedule, which the site claims is an extrapolation of her recent online times but, from what I saw, was highly unreliable. Basic members see no schedule at all and Premium Members get all modelsí schedules if they pay 10 credits every 15 days.
- Access to snapshots taken by other members during privates with that model. Largely depends on the model because some have a hundred but others have just a handful or none at all because theyíve blocked this option. Basic Members see only a blurred version but Premium Members get access to all modelsí snapshots at no extra cost.
- Free messaging with that model. Basic members are charged 1.2 credits per internal message sent to a model. Premium Members get a reduced price plus free messaging to models theyíve had a private with in the last 15 days.
- Allegedly, you appear in a different color to the model when you enter her room. Premium Members are also singled out but, if you are regularly taking a model private, itís highly unlikely she will not identify you anyway regardless of your status as soon as you enter the room.
- You may have the site record video and text written during your private shows but then the site charges you to replay at half the price of a live show. I took it as some kind of joke. You still have access to them at half price even if you are no longer a member of the Fan Club but thereís no info on the date they took place and the sample frame often fails to load (site bug I guess) so itís of little use.
What a Fan Club doesnít get you here but similar features get you at other sites is a discount on the per-minute-rate of a live show with the model. Itís probably just that the prices here are already the lowest around.
Cams.com aka Streamray
Mediocre at best cam site - Most models prices per minute are ridiculous, they start where most sites stop!
DO not under any circumstances pay for the pre-recorded videos
Unline STREAMATE , you pay per video /99 per minute and most videos do NOT load, are bogus ( model sitting in free chat ) or a quick flash.
You are payign for them but they are not cached or downloadable so you mist record a baf recording. You can not preview them in anyway . And regardless of how long video plays for or does not play for in most cases you are charged for the listted minutes - and they will NOT give credits or refunds 0 even though they( in writing ) acknowledge that the movie files have become " corrupted" as they describe it and they are trying to fix the situation.
Thier advice was to purchase another as 40 - to 50% are of decent quality???
Bottomline - DON NOT join this site or its many affiliates under any circumstances
They also have premium and other rip off packages which give you ABSOLUTELY NOTHIGN for 19$ per month or you can join an individual models fan club and get her vid free but when you do videos are suddenly not available or are removed
Ever wonder why the models you like on Secretfriends or directsex no longer strip or perform at all?
These sites = theyarelive,com and freeforumzone.leonardo.it/viewforum.aspx?f=92026 Trade EVERY MODELS VIDEOS. There is no need for ANYONE to visit the sites - These sites have armies of LOSERSwho do nothing BUT records EVERY second of Every Performers shows on then catalog them for EVERYONE to download. Make the sites aware of these scumbags if you want your fav models to still model!
Has anyone been to this site in the last two years? No activity on here about it since 2009. I'm really just interested on if you can get scammed out of your money (they overcharge, etc.). I'm just interested in getting enough tokens to tip in chats.
OK, so we have already had a discussion of how confusing Live Gonzo's "join" page is. Now I get an e-mail promo blaring about the new Massive Update to the site - 600 HD Scenes in 55 categories! Just check out the Bonus Movies tab. I clicked around on their site, without joining, and I can't see any Bonus Movies tab.
there is no way of canceling my subscription as it says its processed by epoch but eith u fill in the membership form it says netbilling i receveid no notification once i registered as a member who is billing me tried to contact the site but no answer. any advise
There were a few comments about live cam sites a while back, and I just thought I'd comment on cam4.com. The main concern about these sites, which I share, is that they tend to be overpriced, charging extortionate amounts per minute for very little action in return. Cam4, however, is a totally free site (although, like most, you can subscribe and pay per minute for a private show.) However, unlike a lot of the others I've seen, there are a lot of amateur "cammers" who perform for free, and who just like exhibiting themselves. There's a huge number of girl and guy cams, as well as couples and TV/TS. As there's a lot of amateurs on there, they're not all plucked and waxed model types, which suits me down to the ground.
If you're into this kind of site, then give it a go. I'd be interested to hear what other PUers think...
Having seen manholelovers comment on this site I thought I'd add a few impressions of my own. I won't do a full review as although I've been an on-and-off member for some time, I've never used any of the paid-for or premium features.
The reason I haven't though is I just don't see the need! Cam 4 shows just how many exhibitionists there are out there who are quite prepared to show off for free! The chat rooms are lively and a lot of the models are happy to take requests if you ask nicely and understand you're not a paying customer so if they say no, tough!
There are cams of every type here - male, female, male/female couples and male/male couples. Some of the men are straight but few will block men from watching their cams - in any case if you want you can join as female or male - they have no way of knowing who you really are.
I got chatting to a few of the performers and really enjoyed their shows - I even had brief e-mail chats with some of them and one offerd to meet if I ever got to Amsterdam - might happen ;-)
Well worth a look - I didn't see any real benefit to paying when the basic site is so great though!
By the way could I suggest PU acknowledge that this site has plenty of male performers, straight and gay too? At the moment it shows under the "webcam girls" sub-category but it could easily have gay and for women tags too as there's many male performers and gay and straight couples.
