How Does Streamate Work?

Streamate is an adult entertainment site that gives users the opportunity to interact with amateur cam models. But don’t let that statement fool you. Unlike many other camming sites, Streamate actually has quite an impressive balance between professional porn stars and amateur cam models. There is also excellent variety in terms of kinks, preferences, and fetishes, so you are bound to find something that floats your boat.

Get Deal

If you don’t already have an account, you can browse the Streamate website to get a feel for it. As a freemium site, there are countless cam rooms that will be free for you to enter and watch, but your participation will be restricted. It’s also worth keeping in mind that some rooms might be completely restricted and reserved for registered members or paying viewers.

The Sign-Up Process

The Streamate sign-up process is fairly straightforward and you will just need to confirm your age and input an email address as well as a nickname and password.

Once you’ve signed up, you will be required to enter a payment option and you can use any major credit card, PayPal, or a prepaid card with at least ($25) loaded onto it.

Free Features

If there is one thing that we love about Streamate it is the many free features that you’ll have the opportunity to explore. This is exactly what we’ll be doing now.

Free Account 

Unlike other platforms, such as Cherry TV, there are no subscription fees when you sign up to Streamate. While you will need to add a payment option after you have signed up, you will not be debited for anything until you start using some of the paid features that we’ll elaborate on below.

Chat Live with Models 

There are many cam models who are available to chat with you for free. While you won’t be able to entice them into performing certain acts for you, you can still enjoy the teasing that the cam model will throw your way.

Browse Photos

Cam models usually have an entire gallery full of photos. This means that if you’re keen on one model in particular, you’ll be able to browse her (or his) photos absolutely free of charge. These photos are usually PG, but there are often more explicit photos that you can pay to view.

Private Message

If any of your cam models are offline and you want to leave them a message, you can PM them. This is another feature that is completely free of charge. However, there is no guarantee that you’ll get a message back. That being said, most cam models are good at responding to private messages.

Paid Features

While Streamate is a freemium site, there are tons of paid features that will make your viewing pleasure that much more – well – pleasurable! If you’re wondering how the paid features work, they will debit your credit card, PayPal account, or prepaid card every time you engage in a paid activity. It’s important to note that Streamate is a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) site, but you can set daily limits on your spending so that you’re never caught unawares by a massive bill at the end of the month.

Private Chat

The average private show costs around ($2.99) per minute. However, high-end private shows can cost upwards of ($12.00) per minute. These chats allow users to have a more private interaction with a cam model, but she (he/they) can allow other users to enter the chat. You, however, have the power to control whether or not the other users can see your comments or if you’ll restrict the viewing of your comments to the cam model only.

Exclusive Chat

Exclusive chats usually cost upwards of ($3.99) per minute. These are great for anyone who wants to go cam2cam or have a solo session with their cam model. Understand that not all cam models will oblige your request to go private as they have a priority to satisfy all of their followers. Going into an exclusive chat during their peak hours might cost them precious views.

GOLD Shows

GOLD shows will be set by a cam model and they will collect GOLD in the lead-up to the show. They will usually provide a benchmark for entering the show. For instance, a cam model might request 10 GOLD for you to enter the show and she (he/they) will detail what you will be getting out of the show.

You can view a cam model’s GOLD menu at any time during a free show or private chat. This menu has an array of actions that you might want the cam model to perform. This could be “flash boobs” or “show ass”. There will be a GOLD price affixed to each action on the menu and, every time you click on it, the cam model will perform the action, and your account will be billed.

Final Verdict

Overall, Streamate is a fantastic cam site that offers great variety as well as true dedication to its customers’ needs. Versatile in every sense of the word, this site will suit any budget as you can really enjoy a number of shows and features for free or opt to splurge a little for a one-on-one, custom experience.
