Sakura Live is a live cam site focused on Japanese chicks. You can find Asian girls on many other live sites, but to have one where they are the only kind of babes available could be very appealing for fans of Japanese women. But is the site appealing? Let's find out...
SakuraLive has thousands of performers signed up to the site and I have found 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 example.
The site offers 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. 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. 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 a great-looking 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. Shows cost about $2.50/minute, which is a good rate.
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 and more than willing to get 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.
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). There's also a MyPage section where you can add your favorite performers and get notified by email when they're online. You can also claim "miles" toward chat points.
For those of you hoping to check out the site on your phone it isn't yet mobile-friendly, but there's a note saying that they're working on it. Overall, Sakura Live is a good cam site and one that will particularly please those of you who can't get enough cute Japanese chicks. Plus, you won't find these performers on any other cam site.
