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.
