& CAMERA BOYS
Live Jasmin (aka Jasmin) was one of the first webcam sites I signed up for and still remains on my short list today. Back in the early 2000s it was kind of "the little site that could" with a simple design and focused mostly on Eastern European performers.
Today, it's a giant in the video chat industry but has remained loyal to the the business model it started out with: Provide a polished live cam experience with sexy women, a simple but effective design and an emphasis on 1-0n-1 interaction. Jasmin is one of the few sites in this market that has shunned the group chat system most sites have transitioned to.

The first thing you might notice when browsing the various free chat rooms at Jasmin is that virtually all performers offer HD video and audio, are almost always dressed to the nines in sexy lingerie and clearly have spent some time in front of their makeup mirror. You may also notice that almost all appear to broadcasting from a professionally designed, very upscale bedroom. The reality is that most women, men and couples are studio workers which has it's pros and cons.
Clearly the emphasis at Jasmin is a highly professional video chat with women that always look their best. If your first love is gorgeous, dolled up Eastern European women welcome to your new home. The downside is that from my experience quite a few of the women can be automatons in terms of their interaction and sex show. That is, many performers' shows feel kind of robotic and not very authentic.
If a performer you want to chat with is in a private show you still, in most cases, have the option to "peek" for a few seconds for a single credit. This is an ideal, and inexpensive, way to get a feel for her private show and, if you don't mind being a voyeur, can join in on the private in progress if you like what you see.
Just keep in mind that it's good etiquette to respect the fact that another member started the private and the performer will likely be focused on their requests first.
Foregoing group chats, the emphasis at Jasmin is on true 1-on-1 interaction (that is, private shows) and for those of us who want that kind of intimacy this is a site that excels in it. There's never any worry that the performer you've had your eye on will be stuck in a group show for the next hour; Basically, if she's in free chat, she's available for a private show.
While Jasmin does offer couples, lesbians, TS/TVs and guys, those categories are becoming less and less popular and the performer availability for each has suffered as a result. They still have a fair amount of fetish/dominatrix hosts however.
The ratio of credits to dollars (or your local currency) is not strictly 1:1 and varies based on the credit package you purchase. For the most expensive package ($169.99 USD) you'll get about 160 credits.
Private chats cost anywhere from just under 1 credit/min. for new performers, up to a high 4 credits/min. (at least, the highest I've seen).
Scheduled shows charge a flat price for admission, you simply buy a ticket. To be honest, I'm not very familiar with these shows yet but a couple I looked up the details for charged 9.99 credits - not sure if that's standard or varies.
◊ Most performers have a photo and video gallery available for premium members (anyone who has bought credits at any time is automatically "premium"), though you have to "unlock" clips for a credit. The only other interaction available is send credits as a gift - basically a cute badge that ranges in price from a single credit to 5000(!)
◊ The Performer Awards section is pretty basic: You can vote for individual performers and at the end of each award period they can win prizes (I assume credits).
◊ Jasmin features Video Calls which are similar to a Skype video chat or Google Hangout where the performer can see you as well (assuming you have a webcam). The advantage over a regular video chat is that it's strictly 1-on-1: No spying from other members nor can anyone else join the chat.
Jasmin is by far one of the most successful adult video chat sites in big part because it sticks to what made it famous: The chance to enjoy private chats with high-end performers in high-end studios broadcasting in full HD.
While it's certainly not a site for those who want to see free shows or enjoy a community atmosphere, it caters to those who want a - you guessed it - high-end, intimate experience and are willing to pay for it.
