These 5 Webcam Sites Have the Best Close-up Models
The new generation of self-focusing and remote control HD and 4K webcams allow models to pose for close-ups without distortion or skew. If you love a great close-up as much as I do, here are the 5 best webcam sites for you.
LiveJasmin is one of the best premium cam sites on the market. The platform has a long list of great features, including filters to locate every taste and fetish, detailed model bios, cam-to-cam and two-way audio for computer and mobile device, VIP Shows, and plenty more.
When you land on the LiveJasmin homepage you'll find a beautifully designed platform with a plush red and gold color scheme that hints at the red-light districts of days past. The homepage is a large grid of preview screens, as well as several tabs taking you to other pages. Hover over a preview screen to get a sneak peek into the room.
Along the side of the homepage you'll notice a long list of categories and filters, including a section titled Willingness. There you'll find a list of the models' specialties including Bondage, Cosplay, Striptease, and of course Close-up. It's not that those are the only models working close to the camera, but it's the best place to start.
The LiveJasmin media player is very well configured. It facilitates all the actions you need to enjoy your time with the model, including icons that turn on your camera and microphone, one that takes a snapshot of the room, and one for saving the model to your Favorites list. Along the button are more icons, with preset tips.
For all its luxury, LiveJasmin isn't as expensive as you might expect. The price for a one-on-one session with a model averages $2.40 a minute, not including c2c and two-way audio, which will usually run you another $1.00 a minute on average. There are models working for a lot less, though, and you can locate them by using the Price filter.
If you select the 0.01 - 0.98 (credits) range you should be able to find cam girls working for as little as $1.00 a minute. You can also save money by participating in a VIP Show, where the model sets a goal and performs if and when she reaches that goal. VIP Shows typically cost a lot less than private shows.
CamSoda provides more access for less money than most other cam sites. This freemium site has around 800 models online at any time, and most perform for free in the open chat. You can connect with the model via cam2cam and audio, the mobile version works perfectly, and the site allows you to record your private sessions.
CamSoda doesn't have a close-up category, but you shouldn't have much trouble locating models shooting close up. The site's active preview screens mean you can scroll through pages and pages of models till you locate whatever your heart desires. I'd estimate at least a quarter of the models are doing close-ups.
Every CamSoda model has a Tipping Menu and you should always check it to see what she's into and for how much. There's also has a list of hashtags you can use to isolate your feed, but be forewarned that the list is extremely long and you might not find the right hashtag till page 107.
You don't have to spend money on CamSoda, but once you see how the models perform you might feel impelled to tip them anyway. These beauties love to dance, pose, strip, and more, for the camera. You'll often find models using interactive sex toys you can activate by tipping just a few credits.
If you decide to enter a private session you'll usually be to turn on your camera and microphone, so you and the model can connect more intimately. Unlike some sites, CamSoda doesn't charge extra for the service, though some models charge extra for things like private messaging.
CamSoda has a wide range of prices. There are models working for a paltry $0.55 a minute, which is about as cheap as any major site gets, but the average is closer to $2.75 a minute.
xLoveCam is an excellent multinational site with around 500 models speaking a combined two dozen languages. The site features some of the most beautiful models in Europe, streaming on a top-notch media player with a zoom function that lets you create your own close-ups.
xLoveCam is the place to be when you're in the mood for something exotic. The site features stunning webcam models from all over Europe and Asia performing in a variety of show types, including Couples, Threesomes, Foursomes, and Lesbians. There is also an extensive list of Fetish models.
Even though the site doesn't have a "close-up" filter, the media player has a Zoom function. With a simple mouse click, you can increase the picture on the media player to 150%, 200%, 250%, or 300% of the starting size. You won't lose the aspect ratio, but the picture does get grainy at 300%.
The media player also has several other excellent features, such as a Model Information tab where you can find out the model's age, height, weight, and other vitals. There are also tabs with Pictures, Videos (for VIP customers), and even the model's weekly Schedule.
The average for a private session on XLoveCam is only $2.00 a minute, and you won't have to pay extra to connect with the model via cam-to-cam. For the least expensive models, go to the Rates filter and select Less than 1,60 credits. You'll find models working for less than a single credit, which comes out to around $1.10 a minute.
One of the best things about xLoveCam is that you can pay for service using your mobile provider. That avoids adding another payment system to your list, and since you've already chosen to trust your service provider, you're not increasing your overall internet risk.
Boasting over two thousand models online at any given time, some of the best streaming quality of any cam site, and a sophisticated media player with a whole host of advanced features, including its own recorder and virtual reality capabilites, Stripchat is must-use site for anyone with a passion for webcamming.
Stripchat is one of the busiest cam sites around, with thousands of models from all over the world. To help you wade through the selection, the site has an All Categories page with hundreds of options. If anything there are too many categories, which can make the process somewhat impractical.
To make things worse, there is no "close-ups" category, which is shocking considering they have things like Best for Private MILF, Young with Dildo or Vibrator, and even 8 tk Granny ("tk" meaning "token"). You're best served to just type "close-up" in the search bar and see what results come up.
On the positive side, Stripchat is one of the most technologically advanced cam sites you'll ever encounter. It has plenty of rooms streaming in ultra-high-definition (1080p and 4K) and a select number where you can don your VR goggles and enjoy some 21st century viewing. You can also toggle latency settings to suit your internet speed.
Among the site's other features are Recordable Rooms with the option to record public chats, a proprietary social media Feedon which you can keep up with the models' day-to-day activities, and a Blog page with interesting articles, including "What is Ahegao and why is it so popular?"
Stripchat is relatively inexpensive, with privates averaging $2.15 a minute and some for only $0.70 a minute. Depending on the model, c2c could cost you as much as $3.00 more a minute, but some models don't charge for it. Also, if you're willing to invest a few hundred dollars upfront you'll get pretty large discounts on tokens.
SecretFriends is an all-girls boutique with a playful atmosphere that includes games like Poke Her and Wheel of Fortune, which you can play in the hopes of winning a few credits. The site tracks the Model of the Month (MOTM) and Sexy Achievers, and has a large porn Portal with thousands of available titles.
SecretFriends is all about quality and fun. There aren't many models, but they're gorgeous, flirtatious, and fun-loving. The platform encourages you to have a good time, with features like Pimp Your Desktop (a collection of desktop wallpaper), an Events calendar, and the Games arena.
The Games area is particularly fun because you can win credits. For example, the Secret Wheel of Fortune lets you select models you like, at a cost of 1 credit per model. If you're lucky enough to land on one of the models you've selected you'll get 20 free credits, and if you hit the Bonus you "win 2x or even 3x the amount spent."
To locate the close-up models, select the Filters tab, which opens a drop-down menu with a long list of Top Tags. You'll find tags like Braids, Piercings, Vibrating Toy, Tattoos, and of course Close Up. Select the tag to open a page with preview screens of the relevant models.
If the models you want isn't online at that moment, consider scheduling a session with her by using the Plan a Date with... feature. Choose an available date and time on the calendar, and a duration for the session (with predetermined prices). You can even leave some notes, if you'd like.
SecretFriends models charge $2.00 a minute for regular sessions, and there are some additional costs for VIP sessions. Pre-scheduled session can also cost a bit more, but the prices rarely top $3.00 a minute. You can also unlock the porn Portal for a few credits.
If you've read this far you know each of these sites offers a great webcam experience. If you've skipped all my brilliant writing to get to my final recommendation, I promise I won't resent you. Just go for LiveJasmin, which I like for its consistently good 720p HD streaming, tons of features, and competitive prices.
