The camgirls at LiveJasmin are different. This hub is known for recruiting gorgeous ladies and preparing them to give the best shows possible. Suffice to say: if you want premium performances, LiveJasmin is the place to go.
LiveJasmin went through a period of branding itself just as ‘Jasmin’, but has since returned to its old label. The service has won multiple awards since its launch in 2001. Most recently, it took home both the Best Live Cam Site and Best European Cam Site trophies at the LCA Awards 2022.
Although it began as a place to find Hungarian camgirls (as Jasmin.hu), LiveJasmin is now a global platform that services users with goddesses from all four corners of the Earth.
We like LiveJasmin’s approach to premium performances and only recruiting the best in the business for their naughty streams and wild shows. Let’s take a closer look in our detailed review.

LiveJasmin Review: The Best of the Best?
LiveJasmin really sets itself apart from the competition when it comes to the overall quality of the shows and in particular, how good the camgirls actually are at doing their jobs. There are amateurs on the platform, but to get accepted on LiveJasmin, you have to show that you’re serious about camming to a high standard.
Performers here aren’t automatically accepted, and they’re provided with a lot of resources on how to conduct themselves while live. This creates an atmosphere on LiveJasmin that feels glitzy and professional.
This could feel clinical and overdone if not approached correctly, but in our experience, LiveJasmin’s average show is really good. The girls are talented and know exactly what they’re doing.
Stream environments also tend to be better as well. We’re talking everything from audio quality and lighting through to backdrops and props. Effort is the key element here: LiveJasmin’s camgirls go that extra mile to put on the best shows they can.
Note that unlike other cam sites, LiveJasmin’s shows are rarely completely public. Expect to pay for private one-on-ones and group shows. Free chat does exist, but it’s generally used as a way to tease visitors instead of giving them everything they want without the need to pay.
LiveJasmin does a lot of things well, but it’s not a freemium cam site like Chaturbate, StripChat or Bonga Cams.
In short, there are better places if you don’t plan to spend any money.
Types of LiveJasmin Models
Quality across the board is a focused element of LiveJasmin.
The selective nature of the platform also creates biases in their talent pool: you’ll encounter slightly more camgirls from developed Western areas, such as North America and Europe.
Typically, rival platforms are dominated by Colombians and South/Latin Americans – they’re still here on LiveJasmin, but the ratios are less extreme.
As expected, female models on LiveJasmin are the most numerous (thousands stream daily). When you land on the homepage, girls are the first group of performers you’ll come across. Models are automatically sorted based on historical success (something akin to a camscore), but you are provided with a choice to sort by newness to the platform and your own personal rating.
There’s a nice mixed bag of talent in the female section. In fact, the top 9 shows at the time of our review featured four performer ethnicities: ebony, Asian, Latina and white.
No extreme age bias exists, but take note of the fact that because LiveJasmin is seen as an elite platform, glamor models and women with a lot of experience in the industry tend to prefer streaming here. You’ll find plenty of mature goddesses and veterans, and you won’t have to dig deep to find them: they’re incredibly popular.
If you don’t speak English natively, you might want to take advantage of the languages spoken filter. Here are the major choices you can select:
Click the ‘boys’ button if you want to see the guys at LiveJasmin. There are fewer men here than we’ve seen on other platforms. In fact, the number of male streams available in free chat when we reviewed the site was 31, and this included some couple shows.
Camboys on LiveJasmin are almost entirely gay. We couldn’t even find a tag for ‘straight’, or any way to filter out men that were gay or bisexual. This won’t bother most, but if you’re a lady who’s looking for a man who streams, this isn’t the place for you.
Male performers were a mixture of Latin American and European. Italy and Colombia were the two countries with the highest number of streams.
Couple shows are available on LiveJasmin, but they seem to be a small fraction of the action. Male and female, one on one action rules the roost: there was a single lesbian show and no group performances.
Since most of the action at LiveJasmin is behind closed doors, you won’t encounter penetration, or oral sex, in free chat mode. We suspect that this can cause some issues with couple performers who would struggle to tease and draw attention to their streams. The dynamics for couple performances can be quite different, and LiveJasmin’s structure likely limits their potential.
Couples were from all over. Americans, Europeans, Latin Americans and so on. There’s less Colombian couple concentration than other webcam platforms, but they’re still in the majority.
To find transsexual performers, you’ll have to navigate to the ‘transgirl’ category under ‘girls’. There were 75 transgender camgirls in free chat when we visited: we definitely see just how impactful LiveJasmin’s recruitment processes are in this section.
The average transgender performer at LiveJasmin is far more attractive and entertaining than on rival platforms. Granted, they have fewer numbers – but the selective nature really pays dividends here. In fact, we’d go so far as to say that outside of a specialist platform just for transsexual camgirls, LiveJasmin is the best if you want high quality performers in this niche.
Country of origin was more varied than we’ve seen elsewhere too. Plenty of Latin Americans, but we also encountered transgirl talent from the Philippines, England, Thailand and Italy.
Types of Live Shows on LiveJasmin
Unlike other platforms, LiveJasmin doesn’t promote the freemium model of streaming. In fact, it’s our understanding that they severely limit what performers can do in the free chat area. No extensive nudity, and certainly no penetration, will be seen without paying up.
If you’re looking for free cam shows, we don’t recommend LiveJasmin.
The free chat mode on LiveJasmin does what it says on the tin: you can tune in without having to pay anything and interact with the model. We find that models are more individually engaging than elsewhere, but that’s because they have fewer viewers and are looking for private sessions.
Models in free chat mode have a green icon next to their name:
Models on LiveJasmin spend less time in free chat than models on other platforms.
Very much the dominant preference for camgirls at LiveJasmin. Private chat has viewers paying a per-minute fee for one on one time with the performer they’ve selected. Some models on LiveJasmin prefer that you talk to them first in free chat and request private shows via text, but most are fine with instant private requests using LiveJasmin’s interface.
LiveJasmin currently has no way for normal users to enable true private. This means that anyone can tune into your private session. In some instances, the shows will then turn into group privates and they’ll have the ability to communicate – in other instances, they can only watch in a voyeur fashion, with no interaction available.
These are group sessions where you’re prompted to pay a per-show fee and if you do, you’ll go through with others for a specified time to a performance. You can join the VIP shows after they’ve already started, but you don’t receive a discount for coming late – you’ll have to pay the full fee.
Models that are organizing a VIP show will almost always be in free public chat. A countdown timer will also be present, giving you a clear indication of how long you’ve got until the action gets underway.
Models can choose to set a predefined number of users required before the VIP show starts. However, they can also elect to start the show earlier if the target isn’t reached. In our experience, this happens quite often.
Take a Peek
If a camgirl is already in a private show, you can opt to join in. Around 80% of private shows have the option of ‘Take a Peek’, but we encountered some private shows that instead offered for us to simply join.
We looked at 30 private shows and of those, 27 were of the ‘take a peek’ variety. This would be akin to most voyeur features that cam sites have and it doesn’t appear as if the user can opt to pay more for a true private experience.
Take a peek entitles you to watch the action and listen in, but you’re not able to turn on your cam, nor can you type in chat and communicate with the camgirl.
Cam to Cam
Performers are able to set their own settings when it comes to cam to cam. If it’s available, you’ll be shown it as a togglable option. Some camgirls only allow voice chat, others also offer the ability for you to turn your webcam on. See the above screenshot in the ‘Private Chat’ section to see what the toggle looks like.
Naturally, these are choices, and if you don’t want to enable your webcam or microphone, you don’t have to.
We looked at 30 private shows and of those, 25 allowed users to turn their webcams on.
Cam to cam isn’t free: you’ll have to pay extra. Some models only charge $1 extra per minute, whereas others charge as much as $5 extra.
The sidebar category section for show type includes the option for ‘mobile live’. These are camgirls who are currently streaming from their phones and as such, the stream’s output will be in a different resolution. Mobile performances are fine to watch on desktops because of the large screen size, but they’re particularly good for mobile users.
There are no differences between mobile shows and standard desktop streamed shows, except for the resolution.
Can I Record Live Shows on LiveJasmin?
We found no information regarding a recording policy. We also found no interface or system when logged in that suggested shows could be watched back at a later date. This would suggest to us that no, you cannot record LiveJasmin shows.
LiveJasmin does have a snapshot feature, but you can only capture singular images – not videos or even short clips.
Live Stream Quality
We believe that quality matters – both subjective and objective. We tend to rate objective quality as slightly more important than rival review platforms, but we think it’s justified and for good reason. Our research indicates that cam site users genuinely care about stable streams, high resolutions and decent bitrates.
Because LiveJasmin has a higher entry barrier for performers, you’ll find that the average show here is of a better quality than on other platforms. Starting with stream formats: LiveJasmin supports feed qualities up to and including 1080p.
You can also select lower resolution formats, such as 720p and 480p. Of the top 30 models we viewed, 24 were streaming in 1080p and the other 6 offered at least 720p. Bitrate is variable, but expect somewhere between 3 Mb/s and 5.5 Mb/s.
Mobile streams function slightly differently. You have a one-size-fits-all resolution and unfortunately, no data is provided regarding its format. What we do know is that the aspect ratio is 9:16 – we suspect that the format is 720 x 1280 pixels.
Interactive Toys on LiveJasmin
LiveJasmin supports interactive toy functionality and in fact, it’s deeply integrated as a key feature of the website in the streaming interface.
The more credits you donate to the streamer, the greater the reaction. Activations start at a price point of 1 credit, but the most intense settings can cost as much as 300 credits.
Owing to the fact that activation is expensive and freemium shows aren’t a thing at LiveJasmin, we found that the activation of interactive toys was far less common than on other platforms. Models seem to have to stick to these rigid pricing schedules too: they have no say in lowering prices.
Even at the lowest price point, you have to spend 1 USD to activate a toy for 1 second. The most expensive option is $300 – and it lasts for just 2 minutes. Based on this, we think LiveJasmin’s interactive toy support is probably the worst of all the major cam sites.
LiveJasmin has a loyalty program that gives you extensive benefits. Different levels entitle you to progressively better things. You’ll start at the ‘crush’ level and be able to work up to ‘casanova’. Note that Club Elite is linked to your account and is not specific to any particular model.
Here’s a handy graphic that shows all of the levels and perks available:
While it’s technically possible to reach the level of exclusive private, you’ll have to spend thousands of dollars to get there. You’ll also lose points on a daily basis, so stay active if you don’t want to dip into the previous bracket.
Getting Around LiveJasmin
In terms of convenience and utility, LiveJasmin lives up to the standard we’d expect from a cam hub that has operated for 20+ years. From the homepage, it’s really quite easy for users to find their way around and to select various filtering options so they can find the types of show most relevant to their interests.
The sidebar makes intuitive sense: plenty of categories for different types of meta interests. For example, you can pick show types, price per minute, performer tags and languages spoken. There are sorting options, but ideally, an inclusion of metrics such as ‘time online’ and ‘number of viewers’ would provide additional utility.
LiveJasmin’s Interface, Design and Layout
LiveJasmin opts for preview display panes that aren’t of the live show, but of photographs that the model has provided. Since LiveJasmin works with the best of the best, these images can often be well-lit, posed professionally and heavily edited. They’re good images, but ideally, we’d like to see at least an option to switch to cam previews. Hovering over the camgirl’s image does provide you with a live preview.
We appreciated navigation pages having a quick option to change the preview size of the streamers. This is particularly useful for users with large monitors.
Watching cam streams on LiveJasmin is a relatively typical affair. Along the left-hand side of the stream embed, you’ll see a number of icons you can click on. These alter the stream’s display (similar to theater mode on YouTube and Twitch), resolution and volume. Options are also available for sending gifts, reloading credits and favoriting a performer.
LiveJasmin’s chat isn’t as GIF and emoji happy as other platforms (MyFreeCams and CamSoda, for example). It also has an auto-translate feature if you don’t speak the native language of the performer.
The Mobile Experience
Here’s a look at LiveJasmin’s homepage and a sample stream from a mobile device:
The platform is well-optimized for mobile users: it’s not difficult at all to go around various streams and even interact with the models while on your mobile. One thing worth mentioning is that enabling your webcam will require specific browser usage. If you have an iPhone, that means Safari. If you have an Android device, that means Chrome.
Although the chat is superimposed on the stream and translucent, there doesn’t appear to be a way to turn it off completely. We also noticed that LiveJasmin prioritizes showing you mobile streams when you visit the website on your phone.
LiveJasmin’s Credit System & Pricing
LiveJasmin uses a system of credits instead of fiat currency. You’ll load your account up with credits, which you purchase in your home nation’s currency, and then use those to pay for private streams, VIP shows, toy activations and so on.
Here are current credit prices, in USD, when paying with a credit or debit card:
- 28 credits: $35.99
- 68 credits: $79.99
- 98 credits: $112.99
- 158 credits: $178.99
You can also reload your account with PayPal or Skrill – you’ll pay around 5% extra for the same number of credits.
Note that for some countries, you’ll pay quite a premium over the forex spread, and there doesn’t appear to be a way to change your denomination so that you can get your bank to do this for you instead (thereby saving money).
To give an example, 28 credits for Australian customers costs $63. At the current exchange rate, 63 AUD is 40.5 USD. This means you’re paying over 10% more for credits when paying with AUD.
What Does the Average LiveJasmin Private Show Cost?
Models on LiveJasmin set their own performance rates and there are brackets available as a filtering tool if you want to enter at a specific price point. Newer models and less popular performers can be found in the 0.01 – 0.98 category. You’ll typically find the cream of the talent here in a range of 3 to 5 tokens per minute.
So, for a 10-minute premium cam show, you’re looking at at around $6 per minute. Pretty reasonable, given just how good the ladies streaming on LiveJasmin are. This is above the industry average, but not by much. Remember that cam to cam does cost extra – anywhere from $1 to $5 per minute.
We looked at 10 VIP shows that were currently available and all of them were for 5 minutes and cost between 3 to 5 credits. This equates to an average of about $1.35 per minute for a group session – very competitive.
LiveJasmin currently accepts the following payment methods:
- Credit and debit cards
- Cryptocurrency (BTC, ETH, XRP, etc.)
Note that not every country has every billing option available.
How Will LiveJasmin Purchases Appear on my Statement?
LiveJasmin does have discreet billing, supported by JWSBill Anonymity.
Your bill with either say dditservices.com or D*D*I*T*s*e*r*v*i*c*e*s.
Is There a Refund Policy?
LiveJasmin doesn’t have an explicit refund policy anywhere, but consumer reports we’ve seen on various platforms does suggest that in certain circumstances, you might be entitled to a refund if your private show didn’t go as planned. We cannot independently verify this – your mileage may vary.
There is no refund policy for unspent tokens.
What Could Be Improved on LiveJasmin?
LiveJasmin doesn’t have too many flaws at a platform level that we’d comment on.
Perhaps the biggest issue is the inability to filter by multiple preferences. Services such as JerkMate give you the option to select many things at once – such as teen, anal and Latina. On LiveJasmin, you’ll only be able to select one of these preferences. Better multi-niche filtering would improve the user experience.
Adjustments to the interactive toys is also desperately needed. The current costs are extreme and the return on your investment is pretty mediocre. Especially given the fact that LiveJasmin doesn’t have run on a freemium model in the first place.
It would make more sense for toy activation to be quite inexpensive, since they’d then function as an additional interactive feature during private shows.
Our Verdict on LiveJasmin
What really carries LiveJasmin is the average camgirl attractiveness, stream quality and performance level. If you’re not going to be a good cam performer, you won’t be accepted onto the platform. This means that anyone you like the look of will be serious about streaming and ready to put on a show.
There’s less potential at LiveJasmin to have a bad experience. Sometimes, it’s worth paying a bit extra for peace of mind, but truth be told, LiveJasmin’s rates aren’t going to break the bank. Private streams cost slightly more than the industry average, but group shows seem to be competitively priced and you can get good private deals if you look for them.
LiveJasmin sets a high standard for subjective and objective stream quality. We rate it highly. Visit LiveJasmin.com to watch the action.
