Pros: At any given time, you can find plenty of models in a variety of categories. The site does a good job providing an abundance of categories so you can focus in on your particular desire (assuming you have one). Non-members can also sample a model chat room anonymously and contribute to the conversation. (This is a double-edged sword, however, since some of the guests dominate the chat with rude comments, silly talk, etc.)
Cons: Many negatives: (1) the site doesn't allow negative reviews or comments, so it's difficult to know how good a performer is; (2) members can't communicate with each other directly -- only through a forum that's heavily edited so no negative comments about the site are ever posted; (3) you need to purchase a membership on top of the live chat fees if you wish to communicate with a model via a private message, save lots of favorites, etc.; (4) many models either don't speak English well or can't type, so they pretend to type during a private session while someone else in the room (off-camera) does the actual typing; (5) model profiles usually aren't written by the models themselves (the site uses cut-and-paste to fill in profile answers) and are rarely accurate; (6) the site has HORRIBLE customer service when a private session is poor. Even the best members have to haggle to get even a partial refund from a botched session (i.e., when the performer didn't realize you were in the room).
Bottom Line: The site isn't worth the cost. While a few models are available for 0.98 per minute, quality models are at least $1.99/minute and higher. (The best amateur models can be as high as $3.99/minute; porn stars can be $5.99/minute.) In short, a 10-minute session is usually a minimum of $20, and the models are trained effectively to try and engage in small talk in the private sessions to stall for time and run up the bill. This can get VERY expensive if you wish to relax and have fun with a model.

While the site frequently tries to improve (by adding superficial features), the fundamental flaws noted above are never addressed. And given the sizable investment necessary to take advantage of the site, users should be allowed access to better information (i.e., honest reviews shouldn't be edited or deleted) about performers, and they should be able to communicate with each other (member to member) to discuss the site and share info.

Instead, Live Jasmin is intent on squelching any honest communication on the site that isn't positive. And for all its censorship, some performers still admit in private that they're not treated well, though that probably comes with the territory and isn't necessarily systemic.

All in all, I'd avoid this place unless you have a ton of cash to dispose of. Of course, you can't really avoid this place because it makes so much money that it advertises EVERYWHERE. But it's no more than a mediocre business that, at least in some respects, is very poorly run.

Jay G (65) Appreciate all the info on a site that seems to "pop-up" all over the net when I'm just net surfing. Just can't understand how there isn't better competition out there at the high prices involved.

surferman (5) I'm actually surprised you rated it as high as a 60. With all the negatives around you seem to have been very generous.
Thanks though for an excellent informative and helpful review.

Hi surferman - I gave it a 60 because it does offer a lot of performer options, and if you're someone with plenty of disposable income, it can certainly serve to satisfy your needs. Didn't seem fair to give it a failing grade. =) Thanks for replying!

Hi Jay - From what I've heard iFriends is a legitimate competitor to Live Jasmin. It has many more American performers -- not sure why that is -- but it's also more expensive and a bit sneaky in the way it charges customers. If you're accustomed to LJ's "free chat" area before you commit to paying a fee, you might be surprised that on iFriends, a similar experience begins charging you immediately, and if you opt for a private session, the fees only increase from here. So be careful -- read the very fine print on iFriends before you do anything. Thanks for replying! =)

Thanks! The reason I'm always at PornUsers is because I've learned to do my homework and read the fine print after some bad experiences in my early days of web surfing. Folks like you really help by letting the rest of us know what we're getting into.

alexmedia (22) Thx for the review
I didn't think it's so bad. I saw their advertisement all around the "adult internet".

Thanks so much, mbaya. I'm a grad student, so my funds are limited, but I'll surely submit additional reviews as my pocketbook allows. =)

Jamesy (0) You say the site is not worth the cost - less so if you have the misfortune to come from Europe because of the exchange rates they use.

The current exchange rate they use for buying tokens using UK pounds sterling is around £1 = $1.10 where the commercial rate is currently around $1.55. From the Eurozone it's as bad - they get charged on a 1 = $1 rate where the current commercial rate is around $1.35 = 1.

So - a complete rip off unless you can make your transactions in the good old US$ which most of us nowadays cannot.

I used to use the site a bit but haven't been back since they changed their rates and I won't be back again. I also know others from around the world who say the same.
