Pros and Cons
- session timer/credit countdown
- community features
- good search engine
- modest ratio of men online
- mediocre cam quality overall
- expensive private chats
Live Gay Webcams brings you a variety of cam boys to chat with. In fact, you'll be struck by the diversity of performers right on the tour page, with twinks, jocks, bears and daddies, not to mention the different ethnicities represented with white guys, Asians, Latinos and blacks.
There are almost 7,500 male performers on LiveGayWebcams and about half of them identify as gay or bi, though many, if not all, of the straight ones will also perform for a male audience. There are also 176 couples to check out and combining them with the solo performers, you'll find around 230 high-def cams.
However, all those hotties probably won't be available to chat with when you visit. There were only about 35 online when I was there, but sometimes you'll find twice as many. Only a few of them had HD cams. Some of the SD cams were very sharp too, so quality wasn't a huge issue.
Going private can be expensive at an average of $5.50/minute, but you're not going in blind. You'll see plenty of nude dudes who even show off their cocks and stick toys up their bums in their free previews. You might even catch some sex, which will definitely prime your engine before you're springing for private time.
The price I mentioned was for going "fully private" and that means one-on-one time without any other users spying on your conversation. A private chat is cheaper and you'll still be the only person who can chat with the performer, but other people can watch your show. And, of course, you could go for the spy/voyeur option and watch someone else's show. Finally, you can tip in public or private chat and a performer may choose to do something special to reward you.
As far as mobile devices go, the site worked well on my Android tablet with good-looking streams. However, the streams look less fluid when checking it out on an Android smartphone. That seems to be the case with iPhone and iPods - though I just checked on a few devices and you may get better results on yours. As mentioned, though, often the cams aren't super high in quality regardless of the device you're using.
One thing that might be a little annoying is that you'll get lots of ads popping up with scantily clad women. Also, if you do a search and then click on a performer, when you go back, it doesn't bring you back to your search results. It's also worth noting that if you don't ever buy any tokens, your access is limited. Buy tokens just once and you get permanent Gold status with unlimited access to public chats.
You can also pay a recurring fee to become a VIP member which gives you some additional perks, including the option to watch the models in invisible mode. You also get daily VIP sex shows and priority customer service over free members. Live Gay Webcams isn't the biggest or best gay cam site, but it does offer some hot amateurs.
