iFriends is a live cam site with sexy men and women from all over the world, mostly the U.S., just waiting in front of their cams, hoping that someone will pay for a sexy show. Let's take a look at all the pluses and minuses it has to offer.
During most hours of the day you'll find around 100 performers online on iFriends, which means you get an okay selection of hotties. You'll find babes in both solo and one-on-one settings with their loving partner, be it a man or a woman. Of that number, only a small amount feature guys. To whittle down the selection, you'll find a detailed search page that helps you find performers based on height, weight, age, build, eye color and hair length. There's also a search bar for more general inquiries.
Most performers don't offer a free video chat, but some do. For those that don't, you have an option to see 20 seconds for free, so you can make an informed purchase. It's not as good as being able to have a full conversation with the performer to see what they're into, but it's better than nothing.
Most cams look average, but you will find some marked HQ and HD and these often look great. While there are many controls that allow you to change the font and camera size, there is no countdown timer of your finances as you're in private chat. This can be a problem if you get caught up with a performer and aren't paying attention to how much you are spending. Although, if you get that caught up with a chick it must mean she is good and probably worth ignoring the time. There isn't a receipt either, but you can check your account settings and get a detailed breakdown of your purchases.
Most offer cam2cam and two-way audio, but not all of them, so be sure to check before entering a chat. Unfortunately, cam2cam is only available to "elite" members, which has a monthly cost. The site has done a good job of leaving easily recognizable icons to let you know what features they provide. Many hotties also offer a phone-sex option if you want to have an in-depth conversation with them while they put on a show.
The performers set their own prices and while the range can be as low as $1.99/minute to as high as $9.99/minute, expect to pay $3.99/minute for most cams. Generally, things get more expensive when you're enjoying a fetish or couples show. Many of the performers have detailed bios, along with tons of free videos and picture galleries. The only thing is that you have to be willing to browse the bios to find them. It's worth digging, however, as some have a sizable amount of free content to get you going.
There are all kinds of features on the site and some are interesting while others are distracting. For example, they offer various ways to browse profiles, the ability to spy on live cam sessions, cam roulette (random performer stream) and more. The site worked on my iPhone. The stream opens a new window and is actually HD. The only drawback is that you cannot chat and watch at the same time.
You also have the option of joining a performer's fan club and gaining access to videos, pictures and other goodies that non-fan club members don't have access to. Some performers charge for that, while others offer it for free, so browse around and see what you'll find.
In the end, iFriends is a decent cam site and you'll find a lot to enjoy here. Just watch out for the really expensive performers, though.
