||This site has come a LONG way since I found it just under a year ago. Yes there are not as many models as MFC, but this site has a lot going for it. I have found myself visiting it more than MFC as time goes on for one reason: IT ALLOWS MEN ON CAM.
Why is this good? No I am not into blow jobs, but what I am into are exhibitionist women--and there are a lot here! Since men can be on cam, you can peep in on girls who are naked around their male friends and roommates. I like casual/public nudity and girls do not get banned or punished for having a male voice or a man walk by. So the models tend to be much more open about their nudity around others, which is great. This makes the voyeur element of cam watching much more exciting...and this means they also have a couples section (an added bonus).
In addition, there is a good selection of women but mostly Thursday-Sunday and at the end of the month (PAYCHECKS!!!). The overall quality of the video feed is very good (for models with nice cams and high bandwidth). Another nice feature of the site is the tokens/tips are managed by programs that models can customize. This means that models spend more time playing/chatting and less time using a calculator or asking what the count is. They can also sell "tickets" to shows, set up tipping games, and set "goals" on the fly. Very intuitive all around and the programmers are adding new features almost every month.
In short, the "feel" of Chaturbate is impressive. True MFC has the premium models, but most are not "real" like they are on Chaturbate. Also, with all the other features they make available (e.g. mods) the experience has the potential to be the best on the internet.
The major downsides are the hoards of people in some rooms (which makes it near difficult to chat) and the fact that the billing companies are not as well known. I had an issue buying tokens, so I just didn't (and missed a good ticket show because of it!). I think that a PayPal option or CCbill would resolve this. Finally, the site operators should try to revamp the layout/graphics a bit. Its too bland and a good graphical overhaul would give this site the shine it deserves.
Bottom Line: Look for Chaturbate to compete more and more with MyFreeCams. I say this because the amount of tipping/private shows has increased dramatically over the last year...this tells me that I am not the only one straying from MFC more and more each moth looking for something more exciting than hoards of solo girls (which can get old).
Definitely worth your time if you are a video voyeur and like to chat with real models--tokens always help.
The webmasters at the site instituted a new ban on several practices that hurt the site IMO. 1-No one is allowed to cam outside for any reason. 2-No fisting or "big" toys. This means that I must lower my overall score (from a the original 91).
Some of the most exciting shows were outside! Several models (who had made "camming" outside their thing) have left as a result of the new rules. Also, some of the models who used big toys have left.
I understand enforcing rules to protect models, but their strict enforcement undermines the freedom of the site that I had come to like like so much (and what made it noticeably different from MFC). Now it appears the site is converging toward the MFC autocratic model. I am guessing from the chat rooms that others feel the exact same way, and my guess is that this will impact the site in a negative way in the months to come (especially as spring and summer approach). At least MFC doesnt ban outdoor camming....
