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.
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.
Some of the models here are up to $12/min (yikes!), so I'd hope they are indeed classy. Or not classy, if that's what you're after.
I'm not directly comparing, since I guess this works for some folk... but if it were your thing, I suspect you could spend a night with a very lovely and willing partner for the price of an hour here...
I signed up for free about a month ago and I've been getting weekly emails announcing their themed weekends, where most hosts get dressed in some theme. So far, they've done secretary, nurse or halloween but this weekend (right after 2008 US Election Day) they are doing "Huge Election Finale" where "It's your right to choose... which positions you want them in". I just checked and most hosts seem to be unusually fond of US flags of all shapes and sizes.
I don't know if weekends are the slowest part of the week and they use this theme thing to lure people into the site but they certainly craft some interesting pieces of email marketing. Last week's halloween email also had a good one: "So get your sweet, long lollipop out and enjoy some lickin' action by our masked hotties!"
I signed up to a free account because I saw several porn stars are regularly there. But the price structure is not explained anywhere and I'm reluctant to get credits that I probably wouldn't be able to use anyway because of time differences.
i love cam girls as well. i've found a few good ones who have girl cum on other cam sites. one of them is wildsexyass on imlive. she really cums an incredible amount. she does a show where she cums repeatedly, scoops up her thick creamy white cum with a spoon, and collects it on the plate. once she has a plateful, she eats the whole plate of cum, licking it clean.
would you care to share which girls you found on streammate you are referring to? i've found other good ones as well, including another girl who i would say is even hotter. i've been looking a long time for some lesbians like the ones you described, but haven't been able to find them so far.
Few minutes ago I had a private chat with a girl / model asked her for a strip and did it without delays and other tricks that other live cam models do. Well, I had many premium / exclusive chats but that one was the best.
co-sign with the last user, it's best to troll the site while NOT logged in to view things like girls cam speed and quality. If you go into the room while logged the girl can see you and usually starts trying to chat with you. if you don't respond quick enough she'll kick you from the feed.
Plus, the cost is HIGH so don't screw around, let her know before hand what you wanna see. And keep the chatter to commands only and trust they DO charge by seconds too
the quality of the straming life videos is rising. also the possibility of getting a larger screen is good (even if that lowers a little bit the quality). gladly you have nowerdays to pay after arround 30 sec. so you can get to know if the girl is so cute as it looked like.
sadly there is still no life preview pic at the main site to see. would be innovative if you can switch between life preview and preparated pics (few other sites do so).
if you jump through categories you can also find the category group----hm yummy....you klick further and then to an actor window to join the stream...then BAM tg (didn`t want to hurt annyones feelings)..but this is something that i really don`t want to see, and i don`t want to be forced to see it ;)
therfore make an additive extra sexysmbol under each actor window like it is for boys or girls but don`t let me run into a trap.
I think I'll write a few words about the performers here, I have not let them affect the score in my review too much as the site is generelly not to blame for bad performers and they actually reacts to complains about them.
First off, one thing you'll learn is that for some reasons, alot of the performers (not all of them) has a strange attitude towards what they do, especially the more expensive ones. Some of them will seem totally indifferent to you, ignoring your questions or even respond in rude. I find this kinda strange, because it can sometimes feel like you're trying to pick up a girl and not buying a private show.
Even simple request like: "do you have a dildo?" can be met with the respond: "sigh come to private to find out". This basically means that you would actually have pay her to find out if you will pay her for a private show?
I have also found servarel performers that had rules written on their profile page on how you should behave in their free chat. If you didn't follow these rules they would kick you. I never got that far, cos I jumped these perfomers over as soon as I learned about their rules. Nevertheless it still annoys me that this attitude towards paying members can be found.
The quality of the shows are very VARIED and I really mean it and the higher the prize does rarely mean better show. The best performers I found were the cheaper ones. There are also no connection between prize and 'hotness' of the models. Serveral models you would think - based on apperance - would be cheap can be expensive and the other way around.
The above means that finding a performer that fufill your desires is very expensive. Both the performers and sites are to blame for this. The performers because of the bad attitudes and the site for not allowing a transperrent raiting system, where members can warn each other. As it is now you can't write negative comments about a performer at her site, because she will just delete it.
When above is said I must say that when you have work through the crap and found the few models that are 'made' for you, you can have some of the best shows known to men. I found a few which I return to time after time, and they no exactly what I like and some of them will even spend their own private time prepareing a special show for me. Some of them have even become my friends in real life.
So bottomline is that alot of garbage peerformers, but treasure can sure be found.
i am using that site since one week and can say that it`s quite comparable to camcrush, even the search engine of camcrush is better.
could`nt locate any rubbish until now (see the other comments) but will report it emidiantly.
Just wanted to note, one of the good things abou tthis sie is the free video preview, You can see the girl and sometimes see her while she is doing a show for a paying client, Its a great way to see just how good they are
True, the girls are hot! a few even show you a little prior to going private. Many of the girls pictures are not accurate once you get to their cam. Expensive and nothing special. I'll continue with my search for the perfect site.
There are several models in this site that have appeared in US porn websites or DVDs. Mostly newcomers or models who did a handful of scenes in the past.
Huge mistake: there's no mention of the fact in their profiles and they are neither sortable nor searchable by this criteria. I noticed live at some point Angelina Ash, Erika Vution, Havana Ginger, Kayme Kai, Piper Austin, Savana Ginger and Tiffani Thompson.
There are also others that have a profile but haven't uploaded new sample pictures in a long time: most likely, they are no longer active if they were ever. Dylan Ryder, Elli Foxx, Jenna Doll, Katja Kassin, Riley Rey, Sinnamon Love or Tanner Mayes.
I am sure there are more: several of them seem to work/have worked from the same studio (exact same background in sample pictures) so there must be others that I didn't catch during Europe day-time or didn't recognize.
Beware: there's a Eastern European cam studio that names its models with pornstar names like xoxoNikkiBenz or xxJennyHendrix. A glimpse during the free chat is more than enough to see they are not the US porn stars.
