If you have been following the cam girl scene for any amount of time you will see a large majority of them cam for, or have cammed for, Streamate. While not a free site like MyFreeCams or Chaturbate – it operates on the paid per minute model – it is a huge and quality site with literally thousands of active performers, some of who you wont be able to find anywhere else.
Pay per minute with free non-nude chat.
Streamate has a large number of performers, with over 2,000 active models online the last time I was on. The performers were from around the world and many countries, although I noticed most were from the US, which was different than any other cam sites where the majority of the performers were from locations like the EU or Asia. There is a wide variety of types of performers, from the freshest noob amateurs to your favorite fantasy pornstars.
The variety is one of the best things about Streamate. Pretty much all (legal) ages, body types, characteristics, looks, genders, ethnicities, locations and fetishes are represented. If you are having trouble trying to find a performer that hits that spot you could do much worse than signing up to Streamate and having a browse.
As I mentioned at the start of the review Streamate is a pay per minute type of site so there a a few different type of shows you can view. There is a private chat where you are one on one with a model but others can join in as well. There is exclusive chat where you are one on one as well but no one else is able to join in and interrupt. Streamate has now added a type of show called gold shows which is similar to the MyFreeCams and Chaturbate model. In gold shows the cam girl or guy sets a target and when enough members raise enough money the performer does a show of whatever sex act was promised.
While you have to pay for the private, exclusive and gold shows, there is free non-nude teaser chat, where you can chat with the model beforehand for free.
After you spend some time on the site you will notice Streamate has a large number of performers and adult pros on there, probably the most of any cam site, so it is not surprising they specials like celebrity shows. If you ever wanted to go one on one with your favorite pornstar you are going to have your best luck here.
In comparison to a lot of cam sites, who to be honest, have shitty user interfaces, Streamate has a very good, easy to use and navigate design and interface, broken down into a large amount of categories which makes it easy to get around and find what you want. The site also has versions for your iPhone, iPad and mobile phones so if you are like the majority of people and surf the net on some kind of mobile device or tablet, you will be happy for that.
Streamate allows cam to cam, which is a good way to get more intimate with your performers, there are video and photo galleries of the models, you can create favorites lists and receive notifications of when your favorites are on. There are also a large number of cams in true HD as well.
With so many active performers online, it is in Streamate’s favor that their search capabilities are top notch and you can narrow down you search by keywords, performer name an so on.
The performers at Streamate make up their own per minute prices so it can vary a lot, but the majority of them average $2.99 a minute for private chat and $3.99 a minute for exclusive chat. The per minute price range goes from $0.99 a minute for the greenest amateurs up to $9.99 a minute for some pornstars.
Performer videos are $2.99 each with unlimited access at $14.99 a minute and performer photos $2.99 a day with unlimited access at $14.99 a month.
You can make purchases with any of the major credit cards.
You have to watch you don’t waste your money on some pre-recorded show someone had uploaded. You can usually spot these easily as the “performer” doesn’t respond and well as some of the user comments. Streamate tried to clean most of them up but there are still a few of these “performers” floating around.
Another con is that sometimes the pricing isn’t made that clear. Also the prices are a little higher on average than similar sized sites, though bargains can be had the more you snoop around.
One thing that some may seem to be a negative is that Streamate asks for a valid credit card for age verification even when just creating a basic free account. This sucks if you don’t have a credit card or are wary of giving out your cc information online, but I have been a member of Streamate for awhile now and never had any weird or fraudulent charges from them.
Streamate is a trusted top level cam site with literally thousands of active models in every niche you can think of. The user interface is great and they have all the features you expect from a top notch cam site. While the prices were a little higher than some other live sex sites – lets face it – there are some performers you can only find on Streamate.
