ImLive 2023 Review: A Comprehensive Guide

Updated July 2024

The Bottom Line

ImLive is not the best cam site out there, but they do put a lot of efforts into trying to make the platform good. What ImLive lacks in features, it compensates with simplicity and model-oriented features. Yet, we can't compare it to the likes of CamSoda, StripChat or Chaturbate who are doing a much better job at entertaining both users and models.

ImLive Pros and Cons

  • Up to 100% bonus on first credit purchase
  • Some interesting unique features such as multi-view or link share
  • Straight to the point design, especially on mobile
  • You don't need credits to chat with models
  • Instant private mode with a lot of models
  • Very few free sex shows
  • Camera quality is very unequal between hosts
  • Few hosts online
  • Very few features, little impact on the show

Types of Shows and Show Prices

Free Shows: get to know the model before the show

On ImLive there is little chance that you will find shows with sex content unless you go in Private or in a Candy Show. Since it's a more premium site, Free Shows are more of a social interaction rather than an actual show (they are also labelled "Free", not "Free Shows" which would be incorrect). You can chat with the model, get to know her and opt for a Private session but ImLive doesn't offer many interactive features in the chat that will encourage the models to actually perform in front of the camera for free. The lack of an big enough audience is also one of the reasons why there is not much interaction on that side.

On the flip side; models are much more available than on big sites like CamSoda or Chaturbate, so you can actually have a conversation before going in a Private Show.

Private Chat: the private shows on ImLive

Private Chats, which we will refer to as Private Shows, are your personal ticket to an unforgettable experience. It's the chance to get up close and personal with your favorite performers, and explore your wildest fantasies in a private, one-on-one setting. Whether you're looking for a steamy chat, an intimate striptease, or some kinky role-playing, Private Shows offer the ultimate in customization and privacy.

There are two ways to watch a Private Show: you can either directly go to models that are waiting for Private sessions by clicking on performers with a "Private" label on the site, or join a "Free" room and click the "Enter Private Chat" button to start a Private Session. The session will be charged per minute and the price will vary depending on the host, between 0.98 and 4.80 credits per minute (around $1.2 to $6 per minute).

It's worth mentioning that Private Shows on ImLive are almost always "exclusive", meaning other people will not be able to spy on your show unless they go for the "multi-view" full sex mode. For Cheaper shows with the option to go exclusive, we recommend to check out StripChat which is an excellent cam site with many features and show options.

Some models do not have a chat room but are available for Private Shows.

Cam2Cam show: a feature by default on ImLive

Cam2Cam allows you to be seen by the model while in a Private Show. When opening the "Private Show" modal, you will have a checkbox ticked by default and reading "I don't want to be seen on my webcam". You will need to untick this box if you want to enjoy a cam to cam session which can be exciting for both you and the models, giving you a shared intimate moment together.

Candy Shows: buy your ticket to access the show

Candy Shows are the equivalent to Ticket Shows which you can find on more popular sites like StripChat, CamSoda or Chaturbate.

Models define a price to access the show (usually couple credits) along with a duration and a description of the show, which will start whenever they decide to or whenever the goal amount of total participants or credits has been reached. It's unclear whether you get your credits back if the goal is not met or if the model disconnects. Yet it is still one of the cheapest options to enjoy a show since multiple people contribute to the show.

The ticket shows can be labelled "Candy Preview", meaning the show has not started yet, or "Candy" if the show has started. You can still join a show that has begun but the remaining time will not affect the price of the ticket.

Price table for pay per minute shows

table icon Price of ImLive Shows

The following price have been calculated at $1.25 / token

Credits / minute Price / minute 20min show
1 credits $1.25 / minute $25
2 credits $2.5 / minute $50
3 credits $3.75 / minute $75
4 credits $5 / minute $100
5 credits $6.25 / minute $125
6 credits $7.5 / minute $150

ImLive doesn't seem to like round numbers so most of the shows have weird prices (like 0.98 credits per minute). The price for shows are not as excessive as Jerkmate, but they can't beat sites like CamSoda who propose lower prices and a wider choice of models and features.

ImLive Features

Basic ImLive features

Custom tips and tips menu

Like on any cam sites, you can tip credits to the models. You can either gift a custom tip to the performers or choose from a "gift" menu that will propose different "emotes" to choose from at various prices. This features is a bit underwhelming since gifting credits doesn't have an actual impact on the performer other than being a donation. Cam sites like Chaturbate on the contrary have a wide range of interactions and possibilities depending on the amount of credits gifted to the models.

Overall, we recommend to spend your credits on Private Shows or Candy Shows rather than tips.

Tipping menu Im Live

The tipping menu of ImLive is quite underwhelming

Control the Vibe: interactive connected sextoys

Most of the models are equipped with interactive connected sextoys such as Lovense toys which are directly connected to ImLive. You can tip a fixed amount of credits through the dedicated menu on top of the chat in order to interact with the sextoy and make it vibrate for a set amount of time.

As for tipping, this feature is not very exciting, particularly when most of the models on ImLive are simply facing their camera and you have no view whatsoever on their genitals. Spending around $10 for 20 seconds of vibration also feels excessive when you can get a 10 minute show for the same price.

Extra features: Share links, Monthly Videos, Multi-viewer and Pornstar Shows

Share Links: send videos to hosts and watch together

The Share Link feature allows you to send a video link to a model which she can then display in the corner of the video feed. It can be a great tool to watch an exciting video together and get in the mood during a Private Show. It's an interesting and unique feature that is exclusive to ImLive.

This feature cannot be used during a free chat.

Monthly video contests: models competing for cash prize

Every month, ImLive organizes a themed video contest between models with a cash prize for the winner. As a user, you get to watch the videos for free and vote for your favorite, ultimately deciding which model is worthy of earning the monthly prize. The videos are not necessarily sexual but models do put a lot of effort in them. Each month comes with a different theme for the videos, such as Christmas for December, Valentine's Day for February or St. Patrick's for March, resulting in a variety of very different videos from the participants.

To be able to access these videos however, you will need to become at least a Bronze Member, which you unlock as soon as you purchase any amount of credits for the first time.

Pornstar Shows: famous stars live and free videos of past shows

Sometimes, ImLive sponsors pornstars to make shows. Since it doesn't happen every day, we recommend to follow ImLive on socials to know about these unique scheduled shows.

While watching them live will provide a one-to-one chat experience with an actual pornstar; you also get to watch previous recorded Porn Shows from the Video page for free. If the videos themselves are free, you still need to be a bronze member in order to access them, meaning you need to make at least a first deposit of any amount.

There is more than a hundred recorded Pornstar Shows to watch for free on ImLive

Multi-viewer: watch up to six models at the same time

The multi-viewer option allows you to watch 6 different models at the same time. Unfortunately, you don't get to choose what models you're watching; you can only go from one page of 6 models to the next one.

However, the multi-viewer has a "Full Sex Mode" at 3 credits per minute allowing you to see 6 different ongoing private sex shows. Consider it a Spy Show option with extra steps. It's a fun way to get plenty of hot content at a reduced cost but it's unfortunate that you don't get to chose the shows themselves, and you don't get to chat with the models either.

User Features: Library, Recorded Shows and Reward Programs

My Content: enjoy previous recorded shows and collect videos in your Library

The "My Content" section under the user menu is your personal library of shows, videos and snapshots.

When going in a Private Show with models, you have the option to record the shows for as long as you want. You can also take screenshots, or snapshots of the show. This allows you to enjoy your content long after you've seen it live.

This library also lets you save videos from the Monthly Video Contest, the Host's Video Series or the Past Pornstar Shows which are all free content that you can access from the Videos page once you have reached the Bronze Member tier.

Rewards Program: get rewarded for buying or spending credits

ImLive reward program is one of the most generous user programs among adult cam sites. From your first credits purchase you will become a Bronze member, giving you 0.6 credits per minute discount on "Discount Club" Private Shows (models can chose to be part of the Discount Club which you can find in the homepage filer), an access to almost all Videos from the site for free, a bonus up to 15 credits on when purchasing credits and more.

The higher your rank, the higher the bonuses and discounts. There are currently 5 different ranks:

  • New member
  • Bronze member
  • Silver member
  • Gold member
  • VIP

To climb ranks you simply need to buy and spend credits or to participate in activities to earn points. Once you reach enough points, you are promoted to the next level and can benefit an array of new discounts and bonuses.

ImLive Models

ImLive models is one of the main issues of the platform: there aren't that many of them. On a busy day, you will probably get around 500 models live at the same time, counting all 3 categories of performers: Women, Men and Trans. Furthermore, the lack of free sex shows kind of aggravates this feeling of emptiness. Furthermore, it's not rare to talk to a host without getting an answer despite being alone in the chat, or to have the model disconnect suddenly. Our guess is that most of the models on ImLive are in non-exclusive contracts with the websites and are streaming on other camsites.

Models variety and ethnicity

ImLive mainly categorizes models by ethnicity, with no option to sort the performers by language. The six available ethnicities are the following:

  • Caucasian
  • Ebony
  • Latina
  • Indian
  • Mediterranean
  • Asian

The most popular categories are Caucasian and Latina, counting for more than half of the models.

Model categories: petite latina college girls

ImLive proposes a handful of filters and categories to choose from. Of these 20ish categories, the most popular are "petite", "latina" and "college girls" on the Women section (which is the most popular section). Needless to say that if petite latina college girls are your thing, ImLive might be a decent choice. However at this rate we would recommend to check out StripChat which has many more latina girls and offers more competitive features and prices.

Becoming a model on ImLive

ImLive does not feel like the ideal platform to start your webcamming job, yet they propose between 35% to 70% payouts if you convert a free user from the chat. Since you have the option to propose Private Shows without necessarily be live on the chat, it can be a great way to have more visibility and an additional platform to stream on while performing on another site like CamSoda.

ImLive User-Experience and Design

ImLive doesn't look great past the homepage on desktop

ImLive's homepage is probably its strongest asset. The main page is well organized with very accessible filters and sorting options, a nice grid dedicated to models and offers available to you, some insightful labels on top of the thumbnails such as "Free" and "Private", or a vibrator icon when the connected toys are available. The thumbnails also load the stream when you put your mouse over it, which is a great way to navigate through models without having to open plenty of tabs on your phone or browser. It's quite unique and easy to navigate as it loads additional models when you scroll down the page.

Im Live homepage

The rest of the website on desktop is much less enjoyable. The live host page doesn't have much to it, the buttons, visuals or "emotes" from the tipping list feel quite old and outdated, there is no real content on the girls pages or even a proper profile for each model most of the time. It feels rather impersonal and you don't feel like models really spend time creating their profiles or building a community.

Pages like "Videos" or "Multi-Viewer" have nothing special to them, if not badly organized or unpractical.

ImLive mobile version is great

While the desktop version is borderline boring, the mobile version actually makes up for it. The homepage is very similar to the desktop version and the pages feel more consistent overall, allowing for a smooth navigation.

The chat rooms are 100% focused on the live stream, offering a full page video with the ability to swipe from left to right to pan the video to your liking. The chat is visible on top of video with a low opacity so that it doesn't compromise the video. The "Go Private" button is the main visible call to action on the page, reinforcing the idea that ImLive is mostly about Private Show. Additionally, you can minimize the current host to browse the website without missing the action.

ImLive Credits Price & Payment Options

Credits Price on ImLive

The price of Credits (or tokens) on ImLive is fairly reasonable considering the first time purchase bonus, which can go up to 100% of the credits purchased, along with the different tiers from the Reward Program which unlocks as soon as you make your first credit purchase.

table icon Credits Price via Credit Card
Amount Price Price per credit
25 credits $34.99 $1.40
50 credits $64.99 $1.30
75 credits $94.99 $1.27
100 credits $124.99 $1.25
table icon Credits Price via Paypal

The price of credits is exactly the same via Credit Card or on Paypal

Amount Price Price per credit
25 credits $34.99 $1.40
50 credits $64.99 $1.30
75 credits $94.99 $1.27
100 credits $124.99 $1.25

Free Credits on ImLive

There are multiple ways to get free credits on ImLive.

The first one is through your first credits purchase. ImLive will give you up to 40 credits on your first credit purchase, and may even boost this bonus up to 100% of your first credit purchase, meaning you could get 200 credits for the price of 100. It is still unsure when the 100% bonus shows up, but the highest chance of getting it is during special events.

The second one depends on your Membership Level. Spending credits and purchasing credits on ImLive contributes to your Membership level, and each new level offers a number of advantages such as increasing bonus credits on purchase, a lifetime price reduction on show prices and a new currency called "Treats" that you can use to pay different types of content instead of using credits.
