When I arrived at Sakura Live, I saw that it claimed to offer the hottest Japanese chicks on the planet and the best high-def cams on the Internet. Needless to say, I had some pretty lofty expectations. Did the site live up to them? Read on to find out.

SakuraLive claims to have a roster of over 21,000 girls, but when I used their advanced search I only got results for 7,200. It looks like there can be anywhere from 80 to 200 performers online at any one time. Because they're on the other side of the planet from me, the times when the site has the most performers is different than on many other cam sites. Don't be surprised to find twice as many hotties in the morning than you would late in the afternoon, for instance.

As I mentioned above, there's an advanced search engine that allows you to whittle down the selection by age, but you also have options for appearance and breast size. You can also highlight the gals who have mics, are new to the site and have toys for playing. Most of the hotties have a few pictures to help you make your decision. Most are pretty small and unimpressive, but they serve their purpose.

I still find it awkward to navigate the site, as each performer's thumb opens a new window and then her chat is in yet another window. They should simplify it so that one can always stay in the same window. Even with latest design upgrades, they haven't addressed the navigation.

Once you settle on a performer, click her thumbnail and you'll either see a preview video (if the babe is getting ready to perform) or great-quality live feed coming directly to you from her bedroom. You purchase points ($2 per point, with better rates in larger packages) and cash them in for private shows, chats and the like. The average show is $4/minute, but you'll find some a little higher and a little lower.

The first performer I spoke to was in the middle of making herself squirt. It was one hell of a first impression, as she was gushing like a geyser. I could have watched her all day, but duty called, so I checked out some other chicks who were friendly, stunning and more than willing to be naughty on camera.

I particularly enjoyed watching one webcam beauty toy her pussy to orgasm. Did I mention that she was using a dildo that I controlled remotely? I made sure to rev up her motor so that pussy would be purring! Two-way chat is also available, which means both cam2cam and two-way audio.

They also have unique features in the chat window that allow you to tell the performer what you're imagining yourself doing. For example, use the hand option to caress certain parts of her body, the lip option to lick or kiss her, or the bukkake option to show her on which part of her body you're unloading yourself.

While I generally enjoyed my stay on the site, there were a couple things that bothered me. For one, some of the feeds don't appear to be HD despite being advertised as such. Another was that some of the girls were typing to me in Japanese characters that wouldn't display properly, so I had no idea what they were saying. There's a translation feature, but it's limited.

Recently they've added a MyPage section where you can add your favorite performers and get notified by email when they are online. You can also claim "miles" toward chat points.

Many of the girls can communicate in English just fine (there are some North American performers too), but some don't understand it at all, making a private chat difficult, to say the least (which makes the free chat that much more important in order to get to know the chick before going private).

Overall, Sakura Live is a good cam site and one that will particularly please those of you who can't get enough of cute Japanese chicks. Plus, you will not find these performers on any other cam site.

    This site can be hit or miss. The first time I went on the site, the women I chatted with got down to business, but the next time around, I found one who largely wasted my time. When I first asked her to strip, she said "Gradually," and 30 minutes later, I learned that "gradually" meant "never."

    Also, even with the "translate" feature, the language barrier can be a problem, since you can only get translated certain set phrases, like "You're so cute" and "Can you take off your clothes?". I found that the women didn't always understand my English, and vice versa.

    Pros: Nice, attractive girls, clear streams, good selection of models, two way cam feature.

    Cons: Super expensive, a lot of models do not speak English, some charge one credit to respond to their messages.

    The site sucks, I feel I wasted my 3.00 just even signing up. No chat beforehand is a huge minus. You don't even have a page to see what they'll do for you. I wouldn't spend any time there honestly.

    There are some great girls on this site, but finding them can be a chore and sometimes cost money. Generally, I've found that the performers who are in their late twenties or thirties are the most professional and don't waste any time. They get right to it as soon as the chat starts and start to disrobe while talking to you via mic. I recommend setting your Adobe Flash player settings to Always Allow this site beforehand, otherwise you can run into problems when the pop-up box asks you to allow or deny permission to use your webcam.

    The younger models, particularly those who are around 18-20, seem to be the biggest scammers/time wasters. The overwhelming majority of performers are solo acts, but there are a few pairs. I've found these pairs to be the biggest scammers of all. I started a chat with two of them, asked them to get started (in Japanese), and they spent about ten minutes wasting time and waving at the screen. At first I thought it was an audio problem, but when I sent text messages, they didn't respond. When they finally DID respond with a text, it was through the private messaging system, which costs 1 point just to reply. Whenever I tried to reply in the chat, they would respond in a private message, trying to trick me into wasting points.

    In summary: if you find one of the older women (and a lot of the older women on this site could give 18 y/os on competing site a massive run for their money), you're in for a good show. Avoid the young performers, though -- they're not interested in showing a damn thing, just trying to skim points off you.

    Remember what you are paying for is just to enter into chats with them. Whether they take anything off is entirely up to the performers. You are not guaranteed anything. Some performers are scammers and never have the intention of taking anything off. They just want to nick points off your account (cause they are paid based on the points they accumulate off the viewers) and you will see nothing at the end of it. All they do is maybe flash their panties or their bras. I've wasted around 15 of my points already on nonsense like these.

    It costs more than you think! What they do not tell you is more than half the girls expect you to chat them up before even doing anything. One guy used 30 minutes chatting a girl up and all she took off was her top and all you see is her in her bra. Have fun with that! There are others who take less time, but at $2 a minute, they are really taking the pi$$. A minority of performers do not even show their face in a session too. AVOID unless you have loads of cash to burn.

    The girls are stunning and friendly and the video quality is good. But the cons outweigh the pros. Here are some of the problems I had:

    -The Price: I wouldn't mind paying up to $4 for a private show but the problem is just the initial chat stage costs money. Compare that to other sites where you can talk to the girls before you start a show, this is definitely a minus in my book. The prices are higher than normal as is, and then to charge even for private chats is annoying.

    -Audio Quality: I tried two different rooms and in both of them, there was a massive delay on my audio. Girls were asking me questions and then thinking I didn't hear them or didn't understand them, which meant a lot of repeating before they finally heard my response.

    -Japanese text entry: This was really annoying. If you know and can type in Japanese, you're in a good position to chat with the girls since it's their native language. The problem is that the characters don't show up on the chat box until you hit enter, which makes it difficult to type in Japanese.


    Overall, I was extremely disappointed. Again, the women on the site are amazing -- very friendly, very willing to please and the video and sound quality (at least on their end) is excellent. But with the amount of time you spend just making introductions with the girls and trying to figure out that the mic doesn't really work on your end, by the time you actually get to a private show, you could end up spending $50-70 for a show that would cost you $10 on a competing site (and that's estimating high).

    The site does offer promise in theory; however charging just to initially chat and then having the model stroll around the room after telling me to 'just wait', while the points balance drops to zero is not likely to see me coming back.
