Number of Transsexual Webcam Hosts

With around 400 registered shemale cam models, is a medium size site, and the numbers of online trannies fluctuate quite a bit. If you log on at busy hours you will meet 40 or so transsexuals, but at times there will be no more than 20 or so available for chats. They quality of performers is quite high and you could see who charges more as an indication of popularity. I must say though that from my own personal experience the most expensive shemales aren't necessarily of higher-quality than hosts who charge 6 tokens per minute.


The video chat rooms on are free and not just the into chats, but the who public show area. Users are encouraged to tip, and the more you tip the more attention you will get from hosts, but you can just sit there, let others tip for you and watch the show.

Needless to say, private shows are a whole different matters. The transsexual hosts charge a fixed fee of 6, 12, 18, 30, 60 or 90 tokens per minute, and as I mentioned you can narrow down your search to performers who charge a certain rate. There are some free tranny videos available, but others will cost an average of 30-90 tokens per clip.

Fan clubs on Chaturbate cost anywhere between 5.99 and 20.99 according to a random sample I made. There seems to be no real relation between how much a tranny charges for a minute of private show and the fan club rates.

Payment Methods

I cannot be clear enough about this: There is no need to pay on, unless you want to watch a nonpublic show. You can also just decide you want to collect 200 tokens on the house, which requires that you upgrade your account. Some shemale videos also cost money, so if you want to check them out, you'll need to pay. The following payment options will be welcomed on Chaturbate:

    • MasterCard
    • Direct Debit
    • Paysafecard

    Not only is free, but users can even make money on it. You will get as much as 10 tokens for every friend that you bring to the site and up to 500 tokens if you bring friends who end up performing and making at least $20. You can also broadcast your own webcam feed and earn. There's more. You get 200 tokens for upgrading your account to premium and free tokens for increasing your spending limit. Yep, these guys are basically giving tokens away.

Special Features: isn't the most innovative webcam site that you will find, but it has all the tools needed to make your live shemale shows interesting and enjoyable. I won't list all the standard choices such as Cam2Cam, but here are a few that you ought to know about:

  • My Collection - this is basically a library of your personal recorded shemale shows and the transexual videos or photos that you have purchased in the past.
  • Chaturbate Blog - includes messages, updates and other info
  • HD webcams
  • Chaturbate Apps - Users can customize the chat room, count tips, change messages, send messages and do much more using apps. The site has more info about this fun tool.
  • Broadcast your personal webcam feed

Hosts Profiles

I can't say that I am crazy over the profile pages, but in all honesty their quality seems to be depending more on the shemales and less on the site. At times you will see excellent personal pages with pics and lots of info and other times it's just some blah blah and nothing more. The following info is included in the profiles:

  • A general About Me paragraph
  • Personal info such as Birth Day and location
  • Number of followers
  • Body type - and not that Chaturbate is the first shemale cam site that I've seen where no measurements are listed.
  • Last time online
  • Languages
  • Tranny photos and videos

Customer Support

You can contact Chaturbate's customer support team via an online form.


The Frequently Asked Question page on Chaturbate hides under Customer Support and it includes useful answers to most common questions. You can even search through it with a free text box. It's not a short page, but it is indeed helpful.

Language is featured in no less than 14 languages and you can find them all at the bottom of the page and switch to another one without any difficulty. However, since there are not all that many live shemales on this site at all times, I am guessing that your chances of finding, oh let's say an Arabic speaking transsexual are not all that great.

The fact that you could chat unlimited with live shemales and watch them perform, is the biggest plus side of this adult cam shit. Tipping is recommended, but not mandatory, so for some users this is a genuinely 100% free site, not to mention you can even earn cash by broadcasting yourself or by inviting friends to join.

It is rather annoying that you need to pay a monthly membership fee to watch shows in full screen. When you are already paying for a private session, I'd assume that you would get to view it in any mode you want, but not in this case. Also, the number of online trannies is still on the low side and an advanced search tool (an actual one, not just calling it advanced) would be very useful.

Bottom Line: has downsides, but the upsides are certainly more noteworthy. Any adult cam site that allows shemale fans to watch real live shows for free and relies on the tipping system, already gets my positive view. The live shows are pretty good, especially when you remember that all the trannies you see are amateurs, and in my opinion it makes an excellent choice for any guy who wants to chat with live transsexuals.
