Summary

One of the largest live cam sites. Always over 1500 girls live, plus couples, men, and trans models. Both free shows and paid private shows. Accepts credit cards and Paypal for the paid features.

Pros

  • Always 1500 or more models online
  • Enjoyable with a free account too
  • Nice webcam quality for almost all models
  • Fast, simple website
  • Pricing for the premium features is clear and transparent

Cons

  • Free shows are quite soft, have to go private for the kinkier stuff
  • Some models' private & exclusive shows are quite expensive
  • 720P HD is the maximum webcam stream resolution, no 1080P/4K
  • Not as much community fun as on some other cam sites
  • Model photo galleries and video clips are low to medium quality

Streamate is one of the big ones. This webcam site has been around for a long time. You could consider it a "classic" cam site. It has stayed popular all these years, being a trustworthy, solid site that always has a huge selection of live girls. It has a clean design, the website is simple and easy to use.

At any given time, they'll have over 1500 models live on cam. When I wrote this review, they had 1841 cam girls online (including couple cams), 96 trans models, and 168 guys. (If you prefer to only browse guys, they also have an all-male version called Streamen. For trans they have TSmate.)

The model quality is definitely one of the highest. You can browse the cams of 18 year old hotties, MILFs, and mature women.
They have girls from all over the world. It's easy to browse the models by region, they have these filters: North America/UK/Australia, Western Europe, Central/Eastern Europe, Central/South America, Asia, and Africa.

Most girls are slim, fit, or have a normal, busty body type. But they also have Curvy girls and BBWs online. White women are the most common, but the Ebony, Latina, and Asian channels always have a good amount of models online as well.

The video quality is good and consistent. Most girls I've checked out had a smooth, good looking 720P HD live stream. That said some camsites have 1080P Full HD or even 4K options now. Those are not available here.

So how does Streamate work? If you just want to peek, you can do that. You can watch lots of free live cams without registering, click this link to explore. You'll see sexy girls and women teasing you in lingerie. Some girls will rub their pussies through their panties, or show off their tits.

If free is not enough and you want to pay for premium features, you'll have to create an account. It takes about 1 minute. The account is free, but they require you to add a credit card or Paypal account for verification. (PayPal is through Epoch, and they also offer some other alternative payment options.)
It's important to note that they will not charge you on registration, only test the payment method. A two dollar temporary charge will appear on your credit card, and reversed later.

Once you've created an account, you can participate in various premium activities. I'll explain the differences between them.

  • Give Gold: A tip basically, to show the girl your appreciation. You decide the amount, starting at $1. Many models say in their text what they'll do for a certain amount of gold. Show their feet, flash their titties, and so on.
  • Gold Shows: A crowdsourced show. Only available when the model's page has a "Reserve Your Spot" button. The guests chip in together for a sexy performance. Everyone who has contributed can watch it. A good opportunity for cheap explicit action, sometimes you can buy in with just $1.
  • Private Show: A more explicit show where the girls will do stuff for you, you can ask them to get completely naked, masturbate, play with toys, do some fetish stuff, roleplay or JOI… It's up to you and the model! For couple cams there are more options of course… you can ask them to do blowjobs, pussy licking, have sex, and so on. Other guests can join the Private Shows too if they pay. The girls set their own prices. There are $2/minute private shows, but $3-$5/minute seems more common.
  • Exclusive Show: Just like the Private Shows, but 1-on-1. Other guests cannot join, it's just you and the girl! The girls set the prices. I'd say $4-$10/minute is common, but you'll also come across some girls that charge $10/minute or more.

Cam2Cam is also available in some performers' Private and Exclusive shows. If this is available, you can share your own live webcam so that the models can see you. This is completely optional of course, and off by default. Buying Videos is also available to those with an account. They usually cost a few dollars per clip, and not all models offer them. From what I've seen pictures are always free to view. There are lots of free videos too, although generally short.

The user interface is simple, fast, and nice. It works great on mobile devices too. You can browse the models using many different categories, such as Asian, Big Tits, Couples, Housewives, BBW, Bondage, Mature, Small Tits, Foot Fetish, and so on. There's an advanced search too with some extra keywords.
You can also browse by model region and language. I wouldn't mind some more options here. I'd like to be able to select a specific country, not just the region. Also it's a bit annoying that the region filter won't hide the non-matching models. It just reorders the list with the matching models appearing first, and it's hard to tell where the real search results end.
Some nice extra features are the ability to communicate with models via messages, and you can save models to your favorites. And a very important feature, you can set a daily spending limit.

Streamate is a solid, trustworthy cam site that I can recommend. It always has a huge selection of hot models online. The website itself is clean, simple, and works well on all kinds of devices. There are two downsides. Number one, the free cams of the site are pretty soft in nature. You'll see some nudity and teasing, but not hard action like on some other sites. Number two, while they have nice looking 720P HD streams, it would be about time to add 1080P Full HD or even 4K.

For those who plan to use the paid features, it's a big thing that Streamate is clear & transparent about their pricing and charges. Also they use Epoch as one of their merchants, which is a solid, trusted company that even accepts Paypal.
