SexPlayCam is more of a casual ‘hook up’ and network site than a dating site, which invites men, women and couples to join the site to find other individuals or couples for adult orientated fun. With a worldwide reach, the site has a large user base with members located all over the globe, with one common goal – to find other users to have fun with, whether via webcam or face to face. The majority of its members so reside within the UK, however there is such a large number of regular visitors and members on the site that no matter where you live you are sure to find a number of quality matches, or compatible members to have a good time with.
The site works with high tech and proprietary video webcam chat software, which allows its members to create, watch and interact with each others webcam streams and profiles, which are interlinked. The site can be used without requiring a webcam, however does not offer the optimum experience, and therefore for the same cost offers you a less intense and worthwhile membership.
The site has a clean and professional design, allowing you to easily navigate the home page which can lead you to all the site features via clearly marked links. Free members may tire of the constant pop up prompts to subscribe when trying to use a particular feature, but the whole process is very easy should you decide to upgrade.
The community is initially free to join, however this only offers you incredibly limited access, mainly to the profile creation and search features. Whilst this helps you make an informed decision about whether to join the site, as you can browse premium services, it doesn’t offer enough free features to make the decision a no brainer. There is only one other membership level – premium. A subscription can be purchased on a month by month basis to give you the freedom to choose as and when you wish to use the site. If saving money is more important then you can buy premium membership in bulk increments from 3 months to 12 months.
Registration is fairly simple, although it is in your best interests to submit as much detail as you can, in order to help yourself stand out amongst the crowds. You can enter details about yourself, your likes and dislikes, lifestyle and physical appearance, as well as choosing preferences on your ideal match, whether it be their ideal hair and eye color, to their level of education, which is particularly useful if you are using the site as a personals network as well as viewing members by webcam. In regards to profile extras you can of course upload photos as standard, however in addition you can upload webcam video introductions to give potentially interested users a taste of what is to come. As this is an adult site there are no strict limitations as to the content you upload, providing it is not offensive to the masses or breaches the terms and conditions.
Once your profile is to your satisfaction you may begin searching, using one of the few options available to you, depending on your subscription. The home page has a useful interface that displays thumbnail profiles of members who are close to your location. There is a specific search area, allowing you to dictate the type of person you wish to meet, and details about them such as their body type, hair and eye color etc. Other broader methods of meeting people are by going straight into the heart of the site, the video chat rooms, and getting to know a group of likeminded people.
There are two different methods of communicating, either via flash chat or personal chat. Flash chat leads you to a page which displays a huge number of rooms you can enter, if you upgrade! Poker is popular on SexPlayCam, with a number of rooms dedicated solely to playing poker via video link. Regular/personal chat enables you to chat directly to one person you are interested in, whether they are online or not. Members online can communicate directly via their webcams, however if not online a user can still initiate conversation whether to leave audio or video messages, or simply to drop a line to say hello. Likewise, you will require an upgrade to access this function.
There are a huge number of additional features including amateur home videos, sexy links, message boards and blogs, erotic literature and sex guides. Men and women alike can also leave hardcore videos which can be viewed by premium members, and one on one video chatting can then take place.
SexPlayCam offers little incentive to its free users, as you get a tiny taster and none of the benefits of membership. However this alone can make you want to upgrade, as the site provides a twist on the usual adult dating niche, making it fun, enjoyable and very naughty. Steer clear if you’re imagining a happy ever after with wedding bells by using this site, but most definitely join if webcam action is your idea of bliss.
Having said that, the site does offer some cool extras and the monthly membership gives you unlimited access to all of those features, rather than expecting you to pay per minute of webcam chat.
