Opinions on XhamsterLive
XhamsterLive is a white mark of StripChatwhich is itself managed by Technius Ltd. Technius seems to be part of Xhamster Holding (although the main site is StripChat and not XhamsterLive, for some reason). As always, this means that the camgirls and interface elements are the same between these two sites, but the accounts, support and other elements are separate.
Interestingly, Xhamster also has another branded webcam site, XhamsterLive, which is a white label of another company, ICF, which runs sites like SlutRoulette.

How much does a XhamsterLive token cost?
XhamsterLive is one of the sites that offers free, fully nude and explicit video chats based on tips, which means that there are no entry and consultation fees, but the tips are expected and appreciated.
This offers a nice change from some sites, which only have free "teaser" chats mostly dressed up. However, for a private chat experience, whether as a spy in a private chat, in your own private chat, or in a truly private chat, Cam2Cam, you must pay, in the preferred currency of these sites, tokens.
Below is a list of the different chip packages currently available for each payment method. The best offer is highlighted in green, and the worst offer in red.
In the case of XhamsterLive, you can pay by cryptocurrency, which is a good option to have, and the amount is scaled to match the approximate dollar value of the package (plus or minus a few cents).
You can also pay with over 100 gift cards from major retailers, as well as traditional options such as credit cards and PayPal.
The cost of shows on XhamsterLive can vary widely, as there are default values, but these can be adjusted upwards by models according to their preferences. Fortunately, about 80 % of shows tend to be in the default/minimum range, with about 20 % in the middle and less than 1 % in the upper range.
As you can see, the costs can add up quickly. Compared to other sites, however, the default prices are very competitive, at or below many other big name sites. The more expensive models are...well...more expensive, and can consume your budget quite quickly.
In addition to token purchases, there is also a membership known as Gold, which is available by subscription only, at a cost of 19.99 $/month (or 21.99 $/month if you use PayPal). There are actually 4 levels of membership on the site - guest (anyone on the site), gray (registered account with a confirmed email), green (registered account that has purchased tokens at least once, with no minimum amount required), and gold, which is a subscription only. The main benefits or restrictions to each of these membership levels are as follows:
- Guests have limited access to public chats, no full screen mode, no private messaging, no emoticons in the chat, and no invisible mode access.
- Gray users have limited access to public chat, but enjoy full screen mode and limited access to private messaging. They do not, however, have emoticons in the chat, nor do they have invisible mode access.
- Green users have the same privileges as gray users, but also have full access to public chats. If your account balance goes to 0, you will lose the green status.
- Gold users have full access to all of the above features.
Choice of model
XhamsterLive has a nice selection of models, with about 80% of the online models being generally female, and the remaining 20% being made up of couples/groups, males, and transsexual models. There is a wide variety here in terms of body types and appearance.
Most of the models are in their 20s (about half of the catalog), with the rest split fairly evenly between teens and adults. Likewise, there's a good mix of nerdy girls, "normal" girls, exotic beauties and supermodel caliber women on the site.
There are also a large number of couples, some threesomes/group sex, lesbian and gay couples, and transsexuals with boys, girls and other transsexuals. No matter what you are interested in, there are almost always at least a few models of each. This extends to body types, ethnicities, fetishes, and other characteristics that can serve as filters and sorting mechanisms for finding your ideal playmate(s).
Although the exact number of models on the site is not publicly disclosed, it is estimated that the total catalog of models is about 50,000. Most often there are about 1300 models at a time, with about 1050 women, 75 men, 100 couples of different types and 75 transsexuals.
Interestingly, there seems to be a large number of lesbian couples on the site, compared to many other sites. So, if you like girl-on-girl action, XhamsterLive may be one of the best choices of cam sites for you!
Features of XhamsterLive
XhamsterLive has many of the standard features found on most cam sites today. Notably absent are group chat options as well as pre-recorded videos, but most of the other familiar things about webcam sites are here, including:
- Fully explicit free chats (usually based on tips)
- Free chat tips
- Premium cats
- Private Cats
- Complete private cats (where no one can spy on your cat), in the form of Cam2Cam cats only
- Spy mode, where you can watch the model and see the chat, but not interact with each other.
- Fully functional mobile version of the site
- Interactive toys are fully supported
- Private messaging to any template is available to gold members (and lesser members can reply, but not initiate, private messages)
- All registered users can use full screen video in chats
- Multi-level membership option, with more features reserved for Gold members who pay a monthly subscription.
- Model profiles that often include work schedules and other information about the models.
The performance of the site is quite good, and the video quality is good to excellent, even as a guest user. While the site makes no distinction as to the resolution of the models' videos (there's no mention of HD vs. SD, and no sorting or filtering options), all of the models we reviewed seem to use HD cameras, or very close to it.
The site loads quickly, and entering and exiting model cats seems to be faster than on many other similar sites.
As far as navigation and user interface goes, it's pretty straightforward, and should be fairly familiar to anyone who has visited a cam site before. The chat interface, too, is fairly easy to understand (although other sites have done a bit better at making their chats more robust and user-friendly).
When it comes to finding the model(s) you want to chat with, there are a lot of options. Like most sites, you can enter a name and search directly from the search field. Or, you can browse the models by broad divisions such as women, men, couples and transgender.
For more specificity, you can filter by several criteria, including age, body type, ethnicity, hair color and private show price (a handy feature). You can also sort by tags, which offer over 100 different descriptive tags for models and their activities, including examples like Interactive Toy, Squirting, Lesbians, Anal, Public, Pregnant, Foot Fetish, Smoking, and many more.
You can also find pattern recommendations, sort by new or recently released patterns, and add your favorites to a list so you can find them easily in the future. You certainly shouldn't have trouble finding a pattern or patterns that match your tastes here, that's for sure.
