SakuraLive.com is an adult cam site focusing exclusively on Japanese amateurs who want to chat and perform in live sex shows. Sakura is a fairly popular name not just in Japan but all over Asia and translates into Cherry Blossom which is a symbol of Japan. So it was chosen as the tag-name for this live sex cam site. Since 2009 when the site was launched it has done a pretty good job of demonstrating how an Asian cam site should be run.
The site advertises itself as the perfect place if you are looking for hot Japanese babes that are very submissive and will do anything to please you. As well as the beautiful Asians they also of course provide lots of photos and videos.
The Website and Content
After pointing your browser at SakuraLive.com and clicking on green “enter here” button, you will find yourself on the site homepage. Everything here looks great from the typically pleasing oriental background of pink cherry blossoms nicely worked with the same color shades as the logo. The high quality photos of Japanese girls add to the little details which make this site work.
From the homepage you can access go straight to the chat room of the model you like or use range of options available in the main navigation bar. Selected links will allow you to purchase points, perform an advanced search, login or signup, contact support o read FAQ section. Below the main navigation bar you will find various options allowing you to sort through the online models. These include:
- Free – This means that the girls are free to chat. You need to be registered to chat.
- Started – This means that the model has just started a show. If you are registered you can jump right in and watch.
- Private – This means that the girl is currently having a 1 on 1 private chat with another member.
- New Girl – This displays the girls that are most recently registered on the site.
- HD Camera – Camgirls that are using a HD webcam.
- Viewers – Displays the number of viewers each cam currently has.
- Has Toys – Displays the performers that use toys, dildos etc.
Live feed is shown on every page and gives you a preview of what is currently happening in girl’s room. Below the video are some stats which state the number of chat hosts on the site. At the time of review it was displayed as 23,000+ registered girls, 8,359 Japanese girls and 5,992 HD webcam. In my opinion these figures are a little misleading as they show total registered rather than currently online.
Clicking on a models profile photo will open another window opening, where the model will stream live from her location. There is more to do on this page, as it includes various sections regarding the performer, such as a photo gallery and a short profile section: where each model displays their occupation, measurements, residence, and languages spoken. A handy schedule is also shown, to facilitate the setting of a show date, mainly because of the time zone differences.
If you are a guest, there is a very short time out in each of your sessions and you are not allowed to chat – but you can look at the models’ webcams and enjoy the short show you get for free.
Member Features at SakuraLive Explained
When you become a site member you can then purchase the websites form of currency, in this case “points” (1 point is worth $2). You can use your points to participate in various types of chat. You may have noticed that the rooms are colour coded for ease. The prices vary from model to model but to give you a guide:
- Members Only Show (shown in blue on thumbnail) the average price is 2pts which would be $4 per minute
- Private chat (in red on thumbnail), which is the exclusive 1-on-1 mode costs half point more per minute than the members-only chat. So in average 2.5pts, or $5 per minute.
- Using two way chat and having your webcam shown to the model is free of charge.
- The hand/lip feature, which lets you remotely touch her or kiss her (virtually, of course) costs 1 point every time it is used, and it goes on for 30 seconds.
- Remote controlling a toy which your performer will use costs 1 point every 30 seconds and goes on for as long as you wish. This feature allows you to decide where to place the toy and at what intensity.
- Having the performer receive a bukkake costs 1.5 points every time it is used.
- Private messages, which can only be replied to if initiated by the model, cost 1 point each.
While it is true that these Japanese and Asian babes charge more than the usual cam sites, considering each feature has a separate cost, the quality of the live stream and of the show is unarguably higher. It’s very rare to see an adult can site offer so many features like remote control toys and virtual kisses. These features take caming experience to a different level.
Points can be purchased using any major credit or debit card. The more points you purchase the more free points you will receive is a common theme amongst live cam sites and it is true here also. Free chat is available for registered members. Point rates are as follows:
Regular Chat = 1.2 points per minute
Private/Exclusive Chat : 2.2 points per minute
2way chat : Additional 0.5 points per minute
Secret Message : 1 point per message
Remote Toy : 1 point per minute
Bukkake : 1.5 points per use
Lip/Hand : 0.2 point per use
It seems that whilst a large portion of the performers are Japanese they are not all, you may come across western models as well. I estimate that around 90% of the girls are authentic Japanese. As you would expect a lot of the girls don’t speak English, luckily there is a translator built into the live feed which comes very handy.
SakuraLive.com is the best Japanese niche adult cam site that I have reviewed to date. This is true mostly because of the high quality webcam videos, most are in HD and the exclusivity of the girls. Throw in some amazing tools that you won’t find on any other adult cam site like toy control, bukkake and virtual kiss and you surely have a winning formula which makes up for the rather high prices.
The site is very easy to navigate and has a stimulating layout which makes everything work well together. The advanced search makes it easy to find exactly what you want. Search by age, boob size, appearance or by audio and HD.
The only downside is that it doesn’t offer a great deal to unregistered guests. The bottom line is if you like Japanese cam girls then you will adore this site.
