Party Chat

Streamate.com recently launched a new show type called “Party Chat”. It’s a new way to do group shows for a very low price (around 1 USD per minute) while the regular group chats aka private usually cost much more, up to 4-5 USD for popular models and porn stars testing the new feature.

Models who are in this mode have a yellow “Party Chat” next to their pictures in listings instead of the usual green “Online” status. If they are trying to set one up, you see two counters superimposed on the feed in their free chat room: a raised “gold” counter towards a goal and a time countdown to reach that goal. Users willing to attend Party Chat are asked to reserve a spot in it by sending a certain amount of gold, 10-15 gold in the ones I’ve seen (10-15 USD). If enough members send gold and goal is reached before time ends, show starts automatically; allegedly, if a show doesn’t start because the gold goal is not reached in time, you don’t get charged. I believe once the show starts, you may still enter it but at the initial price and getting only what’s remaining of it.

I attended just one. It was impossible to have your requests heard during the show. The usual button to hide other members’ words and show yours only to the model does not work: you see everything people type. But the model in my chat did not acknowledge anything the 40+ guys in the room were saying. Given the recurring appearance of recordings passing as live free chats, I couldn’t help but think that I was watching a recorded show.

Another bummer was that, as usual at this site, there’s no counter of elapsed or remaining time during a show. Needless to say, time was up when model was at the height of her performance: cam feed and audio were abruptly replaced by an unannounced, mood-killer black screen. Guess model didn’t have any clue about time either.

There’s no option to rate party chat shows at the end which, given the circumstances, makes sense as it would likely make most models’ ratings plummet.

Follow-Up by atrapat - 09-22-11:

Shortly after the initial Party Chat launch, they changed the name into "Gold Show". To confuse matters further, models may still appear nowadays with a green "Party Chat" sign but, afaik, this just means they are in the usual "private" mode where multiple users may join.

FaerieChick (0) I can see why that would be frustrating for you as a customer. Looks like it's been a while since you've been in one of the "Party Chat" shows (which they are now calling "Gold Shows").

My friend works on Streamate and she let me watch a show one day so I could see what she's dealing with. The content of the chat, from the customers (usually there are 20-100 guys in the show) is a never-ending stream of "ooooh bb, like that ass," "fuck your ass," "Lick your nipples," "turn around for me bb," do this, do that, do this, do that, ass ass ass ass tits tits tits. And I can only imagine how frustrating it is for the model to even read the comments that are worth paying attention to.

The other problem is that the customers have gotten progressively more aggressive, demanding, and critical. They expect to be treated like they're the only one in the show, with dozens of other guys in there, even tho they're only paying 5 cents to 1 dollar per minute. The expectations are a bit unrealistic.

There is a show topic. This is so the customers can read what the show is about, but while watching my friend's countdown, almost every question (other than "can i see your tits?" (for free) or "show me your pussy?" against rules) is a question that was answered in the show topic. If customers don't read the topic WHILE in the multi-minute countdown, it's VERY unlikely they'll read it when they jump into the show late. For example, she doesn't do anal, yet she has people constantly asking her to do it. And though she CLEARLY and REPEATEDLY states during her countdown that she will not do it, she still has guys bashing her at the end of show for not doing it. "ZERO STARS FOR NO ANAL" etc

THAT is why customers cannot rate models for gold shows. Customers give models bad ratings for the same reasons in regular shows, but when you have a bunch of people competing for the attention of one model who's busy trying to put on a good show, & can barely read the screen let alone sort through the "junk" requests, it would be a complete mess and NOT ONE SINGLE MODEL on the site would have a 5 star rating anymore.

However, I can also see how it would be maddening from a customer's standpoint. My friend said that she feels bad for the honest, nice guys who are willing to pay good money for their shows. Yet a lot of the good models are using this new feature all the time. So instead of getting one-on-one attention, you mostly have to sit in a chat room with a bunch of beggars and rude people. It's really unfortunate for you nice guys who just want to enjoy your show and who treat the models with respect. It would be nice to be able to mute certain guys, so the model can deal with only the guys who are being respectful.

To clear up a couple things:

1. The model CAN see the show countdown. She knows how much time she has left.

2. If the model chooses not to accept the show, or if she stops it for any reason or her internet disconnects, the customers are NOT charged.

atrapat (112) REPLY TO #1 - FaerieChick :

Thanks indeed for the long reply and the model's perspective on the show type and her options. My comment was written about the time they launched it but, despite my initial disapproval, ended up joining a couple Gold Shows ever since.

I used to like having 1 on 1 with pornstars and Streamate is probably the site with the most pornstars. For the time being, at least. It's frustrating to only have the option to get Gold Shows from them now. I've ended up removing most of my favorites and canceling the SMS alerts. Haven't spent on Streamate in a long while.
