STRIPCHAT.COM - BEST FREEMIUM CHAT SITE FOR PRIVATE CAMS What would a person who wants a freemium cam site with premium features do? Well, that hypothetical person should try out Stripchat. It's an impressive up-and-comer that has managed to take what is good about tip-based sex chat sites and add private show compatibility that you'd only see on sites like LiveJasmin and Flirt4Free. Stripchat is surprisingly solid in almost every aspect, and a testament to the fact that cam sites should never rest on their laurels, as an up-and-comer can always take the field and dethrone them. Has filtering by price Huge selection of cams Only cam site that still features VR Freemium, so lots of casual nudity Very cheap private cams Extensive categorization The Models If choice is what you crave, then Stripchat has it, and in spades. This site has a massive selection of cam rooms, with more than 2,000 models performing live on its platform at any given moment. You can find all age groups, all ethnicities, every body type and every kink under the sun on Stripchat. Blonde milfs, young brunette brats, mature redhead dommes and anything in between. While there are definitely more Latinas and Caucasians on Stripchat, there's still a good selection of Asian, Ebony, Indian and even Arab cam models. Stripchat allows you to easily view the model's nationality with a handy flag at the bottom-right of the model's chat room. If you're not familiar with the flag you can just hover over it to see which country it represents. The same preview picture will also let you know which chat room is in HD, and if the model uses an interactive toy or features VR (more on that later). The site's categorization system also does a good job of aiding you in filtering the models down to the ones that better suit your tastes. You can filter by age, ethnicity, body type, hair, price per minute in private chat or by various tags, like blowjob, anal and BDSM. Video Quality A large percentage of Stripchat's models actually perform in HQ, meaning that you'll have to look for those who stream in HD if you don't feel like settling. Thankfully, since there are just so many live cams on Stripchat, and since there's a dedicated HD category (which you can see by clicking the ALL CATEGORIES button under the Popular categories), finding HD models on Stripchat is a cakewalk. Stripchat Latina seducing her viewers in VR chat At any given time, there are about 200 live HD cams on Stripchat, streaming between 720p and 1080p.Chat Types Stripchat doesn't have a whole lot of different cam show types, and mainly separates them into different categories for the sake of simplicity. It has free chat and a few types of private chat. It doesn't make things any more cumbersome than they should be, which I'm thankful for. Stripchat's main page Do note that you can change how the cams are sorted at the top right, above the webcams grid. Open Chat Since Stripchat is a freemium cam site, you can pretty much spend all your time in the free chat, flirting with the model and tipping as you see fit. You can find lots of models who do full shows in the open chat, and prefer the more communal approach that it has. Like, seriously: When writing this review, one of the first cam rooms I stumbled across was of a beautiful platinum-blonde, blue-eyed Russian girl voraciously deep-throating a cock like she was starving and only subsists on cum. When a cam model is using a remote controlled sex toy, you can activate it by tipping her. If you want more control, intimacy and privacy, though, you'll have to pay for private. Private Chat Once you're ready to take the plunge, you can press the Start Private button below the stream. There, you'll see the option to either start a private show or a cam2cam show. Nobody can see your chat, but members can still spy on your show. Some models also set a minimum duration for their show, usually for 10 minutes. For example, if you start such a private show and end it after 5 minutes, you'll still be charged for 10. This, of course, doesn't come into effect if the model is the one who ended the show early. Cam2Cam Chat If you want the model to see you, or even hear you, then this is the option you should choose. You can let the performer see you get off via your webcam, or even talk to her through a microphone, since two-way audio is included. Some performers charge more for cam2cam, but this is usually not the case, and even when it is, they only charge about a dollar more per minute. VR Chat Stripchat is the only adult webcam site still featuring virtual reality cam shows. You'll see a smattering of them online at any point in time, and they stream in 4K when you are using VR headset, so, if you have one, go grab it. Stripchat doesn't treat this feature like a gimmick, and the developers behind the site put a lot of work into making this a truly immersive experience. Stripchat's VR chat The supported headsets are listed in the picture above. Do note that most of the cam girls offering VR chat tend to charge higher prices for it than most, and that you'll need to download and install a program for the VR to work. All these are more than worth it, though. Just be careful, as the experience tends to be exhilarating and addictive. Unique Features and Extra Content Once you go inside a room, you'll notice that it also serves as the model's profile page. Click on the Profile tag above the video screen to check out which languages the model is fluent in, what kinks and sexual acts she performs, what she's interested in and so on. There, you can also activate a notification that will let you know when she comes online, send her a private message (gold members only), add her to your favorites or even add her as a friend (green and gold members only), like you would on Facebook. You can also see some risque photos of her, or subscribe to her fan club for even more access to pictures of her naughty bits. Any albums, pictures, and videos that you purchase from the model will be added to your collection, which can be accessed by clicking the My Collection button in the top left corner of the homepage. Mobile Site Stripchat's mobile site is great, but at the same time, it isn't anything special. Like many other mobile sex chat sites, it suffers from the same problem: Typing in chat obscures the screen. Unlike many other cam sites, though, Stripchat has its own app, which makes things even smoother and faster. Cam2cam isn't available yet on the mobile versions of the site, but since it's a freemium webcam site, you'll still have plenty to do otherwise. Registration Registration on Stripchat, as I've already mentioned, is as simple as it gets. Hell, you can even sign in via your Google or Twitter account if you don't want to bother with creating a new Stripchat account. To create a new Stripchat account, you just click the Create Free Account button at the top right of the homepage, enter a username and a valid email address, get your password from the email sent to you by Stripchat and... That's it. You're done. Stripchat is fast becoming one of the best freemium chat sites in the world, and it does so by refusing to neglect elements that cater to people like me - namely, good video quality, cam2cam implementation and private chat experience. It has so few downsides and caters to so many that I'm really finding it hard not to recommend this site to everyone, no matter their preference. And you know what? That's exactly what I'm going to do. Stripchat gets my full recommendation, and is, in my opinion, a textbook example of "check it out for yourself." So go do so. You will not be disappointed.
