Today we are reviewing Stripchat, an online adult community where you can watch hot cam models give interactive live shows. Although the site promises to be 100% free with instant access to live sex shows, it’s not quite that simple. As a freemium cam site, anonymous users don’t have to go far to find a free sex show, but getting it started is another matter.
At its core, Stripchat is just like any other cam site: it runs on tokens.
Like Chaturbate (review at that link) Stripchat models typically set a goal amount of tokens that members can tip towards to get a show going.
Stripchat Review & List of Features
Stripchat hosts male, female, trans, and couples’ cams from all over the world. There are hundreds of thumbnails of sexy models to choose from, and members have the ability to filter out results on the left-hand side of the page in order to narrow their search. These filters can sort models by age, body type, ethnicity, price, and more.
Once you find a model you like, you can mark them as a “favorite” and get notified when they go live. If you really want to show your support, consider joining that model’s Fan Club, where you’ll enjoy exclusive access to photos and videos made especially for devoted fans. For my money though this is not worthwhile. I prefer to just spend money on real private shows.
During live broadcasts, you can help direct a model’s performance by tipping tokens and even go private with them for a more intimate interactive experience. There are several different ways to enjoy a private show, including traditional per minute Private Shows, Spy Mode, Group Shows, and Ticket Shows.
If you’re a Chaturbate fan like me, these four show types should sound very familiar. In certain instances, you can even turn on your webcam for some two-way fun! Stripchat is also one of only a few cam sites that have introduced 4K VR shows, which is an even more immersive experience than a traditional live cams show.
Imagine feeling like you’re mere inches away from the model you’re watching.
As with most cam sites, registration on Stripchat is totally free. There’s even a way to win 50 free tokens every hour through regular giveaways on the site.
Stripchat’s in-site currency is tokens. They cost $0.05 USD per token. Models set their own rates, up to 150 tokens/minute for Private Shows.
The vast majority of models charge between 30-90 tokens per minute, so you can expect private shows at about the same rates of most other top adult webcam sites.
Once you make your first purchase of tokens on Stripchat, your membership immediately upgrades from Grey to Green. This doesn’t really indicate anything special. Essentially, it just means that you can tip and enter private shows.
For an unspecified monthly fee, you can upgrade this membership even further to become a Gold member. Gold members enjoy a variety of extra features like unlimited private messaging, special emojis, discounts on tokens, and more.
I have to say I’m fairly impressed by Stripchat’s overall design and features. I love the layout of the homepage, especially the sidebar that displays all the top categories for models the site has to offer.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that Stripchat gives prospective viewers a guided tour to the site so you have a good idea of what to expect.
However, this guided tour is dodgy about one very important subject: its prices. I was not only unable to find what token packages the site offers, but also the cost of Gold membership. Updated: We have a detailed post where we compare all sex cam site prices. That said Stripchat cam site still needs to do a better job at making it possible to find the real prices for chat on their cam site.
The only way I even found the value of one Stripchat token was by scouring forums for the cam models themselves. So while Stripchat is a legitimate cam site, I am disappointed by their lack of transparency when it comes to their pricing. That being said, it’s definitely worth checking out!
However, Streamate (reviews at that link) still decimate the value users get compared to Stripchat.
