According to the urban dictionary, the term "pimpin" is defined as an adjective similar to fresh, clean, tight, gangsta, uber cool, etc., so you would figure that Live Pimpin is a cam site that brings fresh coolness to the masses via hot chicks on cam. Does it? Let us take a look.
I'll tell you the best thing about LivePimpin right off the bat. The price is $0.99/minute for every chick, which is great. Most sites have the performers setting their own prices, so you never know what you're going to get with each one. With this site, you know before you head in - and it's a low price at that.
Another good thing here is the visible timer during your private chats, so you always know how much money you have left in your pre-paid account. The only issue with such low prices is that most performers are working from third-world countries and split their cam time between several sites. So the interaction is not always smooth as they chat with multiple people and often the live sex is streamed to several sites simultaneously. That being said, did I mention it's less than a buck a minute?
You'll find around 20 to 100 women online at any given time. A decent number, but not overwhelming. Recently the number seems to have gone down, but that could just be the times we were online. The performers are broken up into "rooms," such as lesbian and fetish, and they have an advanced search engine that can help you filter them even more. You can narrow them down by age, height, ethnicity, build, eye color and gender, to name a few (not by breast size, unfortunately). There's a good variety of performers and I noticed that most of them spoke English.
All the performers also have a profile page that you can access and it's filled with info about them as well as having a few pictures. From that page you can also add the babe to your favorites, leave a comment and check out any information she might have about when she's online. You can also send her a private message if you so desire.
Even though the price is nice and low, the cam quality wasn't actually that bad. Now, there are no HD cams here, but I randomly checked out a bunch of the girls who were online when I was and most had pretty good picture quality. Personally, I found the fluidity of motion the bigger problem, so when I came across some fluid motion I felt like they were worth the $0.99. And, thankfully, finding good image quality and fluid motion wasn't that difficult (and remember it doesn't cost anything to browse, so click around until you find the babe you want with the camera quality you want as well).
There's a section called "private chats" and about half the performers were listed there. These have no free video chat, only text. I couldn't figured out why, though. Perhaps they're camming on other sites at that moment. But I guess it's a way to chat with a performer without everyone else in the room seeing what you're saying.
Clicking the performer's thumb opens the chat window. It has many nice features, including text formatting, video settings, public/private chat and cam2cam with two-way sound. Double-click the performer window and it will fit nicely across your screen. You can also send performers private messages, even if they're offline.
They have a contest section where both members and performers can win money. Obviously, the more you spend the more chance you have of winning. It's a kind of loyalty program, but unlike on other sites where it's seamless, here you have to claim your prize.
he site is mobile-responsive and I did spent some time on my mobile device. Overall, it was really good. The mobile design is nice and navigating around was intuitive and simple with clear model/cam thumbnails and menus that slide out from either side of the site, providing quick access to pretty much anything you would want to do or see.
One little complaints is that the size of the chat box is quite small, so it involves a lot of scrolling to view a conversation. As far as cam quality goes, I found the same good and bad as I did on the standard site, so no real difference there.
As is always the case with these type of sites, it's free to sign up and browse. The site's good features and functionality and low fixed price make it quite popular with our users, but the performer selection might not be big or varied enough for more regular live cam users, or those of you who feel that HD cams is the only way to go these days.
