Well, isn’t this special. It seems that WatchCams has been stricken with a case of the “littles.” What do I mean by that? Simply this: there’s not very much here. That’s not to say that they didn’t try — WatchCams is a pretty little site, and it’s quite clean in an operational sense. It lacks the unnecessary bells and whistles that afflict so many other adult chat sites, which means someone spent a lot of time and effort to make it that way. Plus, the interface (as much of it as I was allowed to test) seems to work expeditiously, without unnecessary wait-time. Like the best sites, WatchCams has the potential to be transparent — that is, so well done and unassuming that you can forget there’s anything between you and the action. But there has to be at least a little action for that to happen. Tragically, WatchCams is almost empty. Here’s what the splash page looks like.
Take a closer look, and you’ll see that there’s some decent variety among the few girls on the roster, both ethnically and otherwise. But dammit, the selection is just too small! Now, despite my sometimes brash attitude, I’m as aware as anyone that quantity does not equal quality, and that human beings aren’t so many sides of meat to be chosen among. But these young ladies know what they’re doing, for one thing, and for another a larger selection means a greater likelihood that a casual visitor will stumble upon his ideal sexual muse. How likely is that to happen when there are only fifteen girls on a chat site’s roster? Even if an appealing girl does happen to appear in such a small set (and I assure you, I find many of these fifteen appealing), how likely is it that the girl’s going to be performing at the time a specific user enters the site?
I’ve long since come to the conclusion that you’ll rarely see more than 5 percent of a site’s roster online at any one time, and in practice it’s usually more like 2 percent, or even less. Where does that leave us with WatchCams? If you do the math, you get, let’s see, one-third of a performer on the average visit. Since it’s difficult (and messy) to split a person into threes, then it’s more likely that with 15 performers, you won’t see anyone at all online in two out of three visits. But I haven’t been that fortunate yet. And you know what that means, dontcha? That I can’t even tell you whether the site offers any free teaser chat or video at all. All I can see is the occasional free photo on the bio pages, and none of those are particularly titillating. So really, I’m wasting my time here. So would you be, if you bothered.
Come on, WatchCams guys. There’s really no excuse for this. You could do better if you tried. There are plenty of sites out there that offer dozens, or even hundreds, of active performers whenever you visit, night or day, and I’m not just talking about the powerhouses like ImLive and CamContact. If you can’t offer a decent selection, please: get off the Web and stop wasting bandwidth .
Though I can’t imagine why you’d bother becoming a member of WatchCams, given the lack of selection, this wouldn’t be a proper review until I told you a bit about how to join and what it costs. Registration itself is actually free, an idea I’m all for, usually. The drill’s pretty standard: supply a username, a password, and your email address, and you’re in like Flynn. (By the way, if you think the term’s “in like flint,” you’re wrong. That’s just the name of an old spy movie.) Anyway! WatchCams accepts payments of $25, $40, $60, $80, and $100, using a variety of credit cards: MasterCard, Maestro, Visa, Diner’s Club, JCB, yadda yadda yadda. I don’t know who you’d be able to spend your money on, but there you go. Maybe someday you’ll get lucky and find someone online to party with — or maybe the site owners will wake up and smell the profit potential, and WatchCams will become a going concern. Don’t hold your breath, though.
Here’s the long and the short of it, as they used to say at the Chicken Ranch back in the day. WatchCams is a pretty site that someone’s invested some money in, but it’s regrettably short of performers. In fact, it’s so short that it’s almost nonexistent. If you check their bio pages, you’ll find that even most of the fifteen girls on the roster have blank schedules. So in the spirit of the season (it’s three days before X-mas 2007), I say,”Bah! Humbug!” Don’t bother wasting your time with WatchCams, because there’s not a ghost of a chance it’ll be worth it to you.
