The microphone is muted during cam2cam? Not just cam2cam, do you want to be heard by the models too? Read on to see which sex cam sites let you have a two-way audio chat and how to get it.
I have written a lot about cam2cam or C2C on here already. It turns out there are plenty of people who are either frustrated by the muted microphone during c2c or are interested in two-way audio. As for who has the best 2-way cams with 2-way audio, here’s your answer.
CameraPrive has C2C and two-way audio both in public and private chat
CameraPrive is a Brazil-based video chat site but there are plenty of English speakers too if you don’t speak Portuguese. CameraPrive has the most extensive coverage of 2-way audio chat and cam2cam as they allow them in both public chatrooms and private shows. The catch is, you don’t just need to register for an account, you need at least 3 credits balance before you can chat, open your microphone or open your cam for the model to hear and see you.
Unique selling point (USP): Yes, being able to turn on your microphone in a model’s public chatroom seems to be unique to CameraPrive. I haven’t seen anything like that so far. Bongacams, Chaturbate, and Cam4 will let the viewer turn on his cam but models won’t hear any sound (if the viewer doesn’t broadcast as a model/broadcaster). CameraPrive is certainly being the pioneer in this regard.
After all, we know that being able to audio chat in the public room is way cheaper than going into a private show or even an exclusive private show before you can do a full c2c with sound both ways.
Livejasmin standard private or Stripchat’s exclusive private for 2-way audio?
You will need to do some shopping research yourself because Livejasmin looks expensive but a standard private show and typically $1 extra per minute will get you two-way audio. It can be just 3.99 credits/minute.
For Stripchat, you need to choose the Exclusive Private option which is one level higher than the standard private. It may cost an extra 8 tokens only, but also 12, 16, 30, or even 50 more tokens. It all depends if you are picking an expensive camgirl.
Livejasmin does have two-way audio and C2C
On top of the normal watch-the-model-only private chat, Livejasmin does allow you to have the following extra in private:
- two-way audio only
- cam2cam without your sound
- cam2cam with two-way audio (if the models allow two-way audio)
Do notice that they may cost extra. For two-way audio, for example, it typically costs $1 on top of the per-minute private chat cost.
How to get to the two-way audio in Livejasmin
1. Have enough credits to start a private show preferably with SmartBuy
Two-way audio is enabled in private chat only. So, you need to have enough credits for your private show with the cam model. If you are not sure how many credits to buy, you may turn on SmartBuy under “Account Settings”. When you have activated SmartBuy, you are permitting Livejasmin to buy a $27.99 credit package whenever your credit balance drops to 7 credits. And you do have the option to change the SmartBuy purchase amount by adjusting it under “Account Settings”.
2. Start the private show with the right option
Click on the “Start private show” button underneath the video. A dark dialog box will pop up like this.
Look for the tick box “Enable two-way audio for +1 Credit per min”. Click on the tick box.
The per-minute cost should now be adjusted from $2.99 to the new total per-minute cost of $3.99 for this model. Not every model charges $2.99 so you should check before you commit.
If the models do not support two-way audio in the private shows, their private show request screen looks like this:
3. Does the model speak your language?
Moaning are grunts are international, but if you do want to direct the model’s actions or chat a bit then you need to make sure that he/she understands your language.
Don’t forget to click on the “i” symbol next to the “enable two-way audio” tick box. It shows what languages the model speaks. In this example, she speaks English and Spanish. If it’s ok with you, don’t rush ahead to start the private show. There is one more thing you need to check.
4. How to unmute the microphone for the model to hear me?
By default, all browsers set the microphone option to Off or Ask. You need to give permission to Livejasmin to access your microphone.
How to turn on microphone in Chrome
If you are using Chrome, follow these to unmute your microphone for LiveJasmin.
- Click on the 3 dots on the top right hand corner of the Chrome browser.
- Choose “Settings”.
- Scroll and look for “Privacy and security”.
- Choose “Site settings”.
- Click on “www.livejasmin.com” to choose the setting for this website.
- Choose “Ask” or “Allow” for microphone. If you choose “Ask”, Chrome will ask you every time whether you want to let LJ access your microphone. If you choose “Allow”, then Chrome will remember that you are letting LJ to access your microphone every time you visit it.
5. Start the private show on Livejasmin
When you start the private show, your browser will ask if you allow Livejasmin to use your microphone.
Select your microphone from the drop-down list and click “Allow”.
If your browser has a tick box for “remember this option”, select it to save you from being asked every time.
Enjoy your two-way audio chat show on Livejasmin.
Stripchat’s exclusive private has two-way audio and more
Stripchat’s exclusive private is very powerful. It allows not only audio two ways but other benefits too.
- No one can pay to spy on your model’s show while you are in this exclusive private.
- Only you get to record and save the show. Even the model can’t save the show and sell it in her own Stripchat gallery.
- Optional cam2cam and two-way audio.
- If your niche are included in Stripchat’s “Verified fetish cams” then rest assure the models you have chosen in these categories have proven to be able to and happy to fulfill your wishes, be in about peeing, JOI, or foot play.
How to get 2-way audio chat on Stripchat
Similar to Livejasmin, in order to let the models hear you, you have to go to her private show. In fact, it’s a privilege in exclusive private shows only. Standard private shows do not permit that. Here is how you get to the exclusive private on Stripchat.
1. Start Private
Look for the “Start Private” button next to the “Send tip” under her streaming video. Click the “Start Private” button.
2. Choose exclusive private
After you’ve clicked “Start private”, the following screen should appear. You should check the right column where it says Exclusive Private.
Is that the price you would like to pay?
There’s a minimum duration you will be charged. In this example, it’s 10 minutes. That means your minimum spending for this c2c and/or two-way audio exclusive private chat will cost you at least 60 tokens times 10 minutes equals 600 tokens. Many models set the minimum duration much lower than that so you have to do your shopping or bargaining.
3. Test your camera and/or microphone
Click on the question mark next to the “Video call (Cam2Cam) available” message. This reveals the “Test Camera & Mic” button. You would want to know that your cam and/or microphone are working before you start your show. No one wants to waste money on technology while time is ticking and you are being charged by the minute.
4. Good to go
Make sure you see the camera and microphone tests went ok before you click the “Start xx tokens/minute” button.
Enjoy your show!
Soulcams’ cam2cam with 2-way audio
Soulcams is one of the few sites that conveniently provides the cam2cam with optional 2-way sound. The viewers can choose whether he wants to be heard or not.
For privacy reasons I suppose, all cam sites that allow 2-way sound will let you have it in private shows only. Same on Soulcams, you can choose to be heard by the models
Soulcams also lets you test your hardware before you go ahead to the private shows.
It will ask for permission to access your microphone and camera. You should click “Allow” and go ahead with the testing. Rest assured that while you are testing the microphone and camera, the sound and video won’t be seen by anyone, not even the model.
The settings that are chosen in the test will be used in the actual cam2cam in private later so that you don’t have to struggle with technology when you start paying for the private shows.
List of cam sites that provide audio both ways
There are three ways to achieve audio both ways.
- Prove that you are an adult by buying credits/tokens on the cam site and then you may broadcast and have audio chat with the models in shows. You do NOT register as a model.
- Join the cam sites as a broadcaster, provide ID documentation to prove that you are an adult and you become one of the cam boys. You broadcast on the cam site and you invite the models to visit your chatroom and watch and chat with you. This basically means any cam site you can create a model account you can have 2-way audio and C2C with her.
- Find cam models from Skype directory sites and watch and talk on Skype.
Advantages of two-way audio chat
- The model doesn’t have to keep checking the screen to see what the viewer said and whether he has any new requests. Therefore the model looks less distracted.
- If the model doesn’t have to divert the attention to read the text message on screen, he/she can concentrate better to give a good show.
- Viewers can have both hands to pleasure themselves and don’t have to type one-handed to direct the model’s actions or text chat.
Disadvantages of two-way audio chat
- It’s a desirable feature so it may cost extra.
- The viewer is too engaged in talking and may end up spending longer time in the private show and that means spending more in private.
Is C2C with microphone unmuted safe? Can model record me?
As always, standard precaution applies to everything.
Having your camera and/or microphone on is not enough for the model to see and hear you. A model can only see you and hear you when you have actively chosen the “Cam2cam” option, no matter in a public room in Chaturbate or private shows in Stripchat, Livejasmin and etc.
Anyone can record anything if they want. Cam models are recorded every day every minute by both viewers and porn sites that steal the content and posted them on porn sites. To be on the safe side,
- Make sure you don’t share ANY personal details, no name, contact details, where do you work, your social media accounts that your family and friends know about
- Don’t show your face especially if you do plan to show your intimate body parts
My dialog with a cam viewer about two-way audio chat
Since Chaturbate has stopped guys from the casual “Chaturbating” broadcast, as in having a not age verified account and not taking any monetary tips but he could show himself to other people. The result is that many guys are now looking for a cam site where they can broadcast their bodies and/or be heard by the models without providing ID documentation. That is two-way audio cam2cam chat. Here’s one of the cam viewers’ opinions.
Summary of big_ben’s opinion about cam2cam with full both way audio
Big_ben the cam viewer is only interested in letting the model see and hear him during private chat only. He doesn’t want cam2cam and/or two-way audio while the model is still in the public room where he won’t get her full attention. It boils down to, he wants the model’s full attention.
Here’s the original conversation with big_ben:
big_ben: Yea, the new CB cam to cam keeps putting a pop up. but seems kinda silly if i am not able to chat. I have had performers who I am a regular with ask me to do c2c. So I started researching it. But if I can't talk to them..seems not worth it to me Hony: CB guessed guys just want to show dicks. Hony: Before all these changes, some guys broadcast themselves, just like models here. They will put a password on their room and give me the password so that I can watch him and hear him. big_ben: do you think it is different in pvt? big_ben: that is why I was looking at downloading OBS. From watching tutorials OBS seemed pretty easy to use. You just give your CB credentials and stream key to OBS Hony: CB has specific settings to obs to ensure the quality of streaming is satisfactory. You may have to fiddle with that. Hony: But then if you are not broadcasting to earn, then video and sound quality may not matter that much. big_ben: Being a perfectionist is not a good personality trait for camming LOL And i just wanna do it in pvt big_ben: i think CB mutes C2C for a reason. maybe they don’t want tippers to ruin by saying bad things. Or maybe better for them to not hear my noises Hony: i know why. if the model can hear the c2c in the public room, and typically models will have the sound on, that means everyone in the public room can hear what the c2c guy said. Not to mention if the model is watching more than one guy and they all talk and grunt at the same time it will be very confusing. haha big_ben: yea, exactly big_ben: Thx for your help if I find anything new I will let you know big_ben: yea my situation is more for pvt. I have no plans on public c2c Hony: yeah, the girl won't pay you full attention in public room big_ben: exactly big_ben: it's not even won't....it's she can't big_ben: too many other windows and users etc..etc Hony: many are split-camming big_ben: alright have a great day
Big_ben’s opinion about 2-way audio and C2C is one way of thinking. Some people just want to impress the model with their own bodies. Some want to show the model how he cums for her with both video and his grunts, and I am sure there are many more reasons too. Which one are you?
