Streamate.com is quickly gaining popularity in the live webcam niche. It claims to be the fastest growing live cam site on the net. And although I can’t confirm this claim, what I can confirm is that nearly every girl I visited looked absolutely stunning in free chat. You get direct access to thousands of live amateurs from across the globe. Most models use microphones, even in free chat, so you really get the feeling that you’re right there with them. You’ll also find some celebrity porn stars in the mix as well.
The Models Of Streamate.com
Over the years, Streamate has recruited 19,000+ live sex performers. Categories are numerous and highly specific to please just about anyone who enjoys adult webcams. The last time I logged in, there were around 500+ models online. All the categories can be found on the left of the profile pictures. You can also sort Language, Region, and Features (High Quality, HD, Audio, Phone, Party Chat, Gold Show). If that’s not enough, there’s even an advance search page which lets you filter models by age, hair color, breast size, and other physical attributes:

Free Chat & Show Types
Streamate offers both free chat and paid show options. The FAQ section doesn’t explain these in details, so hopefully this section will clear up everything. There are 3 main types of chat rooms labeled as ONLINE, PARTY CHAT, or GOLD SHOW. Each profile picture will display one of these three options:
ONLINE: Models with the “ONLINE” status are available for free chat. To view her webcam, just click on a model picture. From there, you have the option to go private.
PARTY CHAT: This is a new type of show recently launched by streamate. It’s also a free chat option but without the option to hide others’ chat words. In other words, other visitors can see what you’re typing.
GOLD SHOW: The “Gold Show” is a special group show where you need to spend 10 or more gold credits to reserve your spot. When the chat begins, there is a counter and target for how much “gold” must be raised. If the target is reached before the time limit ends, the show will begin. If the goal isn’t reach by the end of the countdown, you will receive your gold credit back. The best part of the Gold Shows are the low $1/minute costs, which is as cheap as they come. But you won’t be able to rate the model as you would in a private 1-on-1 session.
You can find each of the above chat options on the model profile pictures:
One feature I really enjoy are the Celebrity Shows. Every day, there are multiple theme shows performed by well-known porn stars and hand-selected models. These show times can be found under the SHOW CALENDAR page:
Although Streamate doesn’t offer a ton of unique features, they do have the basic video chat features including:
- HD Cams – Use the ‘Sort by Feature’ function to display all the HD webcam girls
- Cam2Cam (optional) – Turn on your webcam to interact in a two-way video chat
- Change the brightness, contrast, hue, and saturation of the webcam chat window
- Choose multiple video box sizes including HD screen size options
Streamate is an extreme example of how much variation there can be in price per minute. Depending on the model you choose, private shows can be $2.99 to $3.99 per minute or higher. The Porn Stars generally charge the highest with some models charging $9.99/minute! No doubt, this would drain your credit quickly. Having said that, you can find some great shows for $0.99 to $1.99 per minute if you look for them.
Although not quite making the top of the list, many webcam viewers prefer Streamate to any other site. I was quite pleased with girls and features, particularly the video feed quality. There’s always a great selection of models and they’re easy to find thanks to the simple navigation and search functions. And the Party Chat and Celebrity Shows make for a memorable experience. On the other hand, the cost can be high if you’re paying for the top models. So if you do go private with a porn star, keep an eye on the time because your credit will go fast. Either that, or just spend all your time with the free chat and $1/min models.
