Quick Summary:

Value: 4/5 Design: 2/5 Quality: 4/5

  • Decent selection and quantity of performers every time you log in
  • The color scheme is hard on the eyes. Bad site design! Bad!
  • Payment system is a bit deceptive

The Full Story:

This is one hot webcam site, literally–when you go to the website, you’ll immediately know what I’m talking about. The site design is so glaringly red-dominated it hurts the eyes. I really wouldn’t want to look at it longer than I had to. The homepage itself is a confusing mess of text. It’s supposed to tell me which performers are on, and their lineup of ladies. If it’s supposed to impress, it doesn’t. I wouldn’t even bother to straining to read it. Come on guys! There are more colors in the web design palette!

When you sign up as a member, you’d find the internal pages more interesting. They’re still all red, of course, but in this section of the site at least you get a preview of the girls, including the ability to check out the vaunted 69’s Team (the site’s most popular webcam girls). You can also pay to watch prerecorded cam shows, and free “teaser” chat with girls is available.

And are the girls hot? Yes, most of them are. And their specifics are sufficiently varied that you shouldn’t have any problem finding one that you’d be interested in. The free chat lets you video chat with whoever is online performing. This is good because it allows you to figure out quickly if you’d like the girl and if she’d be up for whatever your kink is. I had reasonable success finding one who was up for mine. (Sorry, couldn’t help myself!)

One “off” thing is the payment system; particularly how it works if you want to watch more of the webcam shows. Clicking on on “Buy Credit” to watch the full show leads you to the buy page, which is sorely lacking in appropriate navigation. For one thing, there is no “back” link in case you change your mind. Not having this may confuse those who aren’t used to LiveJasmin’s web interface. Or it could lead to unknowingly clicking on “Buy” because you want out of the page. The site already has your credit card information from when you signed up, so one click is an instant purchase.

This potentially creates a problem for those who don’t really want to watch and may just have clicked on the Buy button by mistake. There’s no back link and, even when you click on the browser’s back button, the Buy page (helpfully) refreshes itself. You have to do this about three times to effectively get out of the Buy page. A person might just give up and click on Buy just to get out of there. I mean, this is probably what the site owners are counting on.

Other than this, the site delivers. The free video chat is a good way of engaging the viewer. It’s also good that they have warnings on the video chat feeds of performers who have problematic Internet connections. I means you can estimate how long you’d spend in private viewing and decide whether or not to move on to someone who has a better Internet connection.

LiveJasmin can also boast a decent search function,  similar to those of other sites in the same niche, but a little better than most, I think. I really liked that they made theirs so powerful. You can specify down to the granularity of hair color, length, and eye color. Details like these are important, especially for webcam sites with thousands of performers. You won’t have to go through a gamut of performer profiles just to find one you’d like.

In summary, if you’re a fan of camsites or camgirls in general I’d recommend giving LiveJasmin a go, or at least signing up for a free account and having a look around. It’s not cheap, but it’s certainly gratifying.

    Just a question: usa members pay $30 for 30 credits , while other pay 30 euro = $ 45 for 30 credits. Dont you think it is not fair and rip off? this means they charge other countries $15 additional. Well i find it not fair.

      You have a point. I guess they’re just trying to keep it simple so they don’t have to worry about the vagaries of currency value fluctuations?

        Admin, they charge the people in Euro and pay the models in USD, you know that? this means they are ripping off the girls too.
        And about what u said: (currency value fluctuations) i had a nickname that i deleted it, they were charging me in USD, after that i created another nickname with same credit card and same email, they started charging me in Euro.
        Another thing, England people are charged in Pounds.
        So this is not fair to charge every person by different currency.
        They can make all of us pay same amount with currencty calculation.
        For example 30 credits for 30$ and the system calculate Euro or GBP to become equal to $30.
        I am member on many sites, they still charge me in USD

    Yes I get charged 42usd for 30 credits. Whenever I spend 30 credits on a girl Lj is actually making 19.5usd + the extra 12usd they took to begin with = 31.5usd. They tell performers they only take 65% when they sign them up. But they are actually making 100%+ on every 30 credits from anyone outside of usa. Bit of a scam. Pity performers can’t take them to court for it, no doubt they are covered by setting up the billing company that charges the third extra at least on top of the 1usd per credit. And they boot any that would dare to complain.
    They actually have several other sites that are a different color if you dont like the red. Exactly the same performers on them, they’re all linked, with the same billing company. Ripping off both the members and girls. Good site otherwise though.
