We hate it when we jump face-first into a new chat site and try to become a member, only to find out that we're somehow already a member, and the site has our username and email addy to prove it. Then we have to wonder: are we having a senior moment, having already created our account, taken a good long look, and completely lost it in the memory banks -- or is this site either a) the reincarnation of a site we knew by another name, or b) somehow associated with a site we've already visited and reviewed? Or are we just becoming so well-known around the adult-chat galaxy that new sites are automatically adding us to their members list? It's enough to make you go "Hmmmmm…."
HispanoLive, the all Spanish-girl adult chat site, recently presented us with this quandary. Here's what the site looks like:
And no, it didn't ring any bells, particularly -- not at first. However, we are gifted with teh l33t madd IntarWeb researcher skillz, so it wasn't long before we tracked it back to an outfit called Night Vision Studios, which also services JuicyNetwork. Remember them? Apparently they use the same database for JN, HispanoLive, FrancoLive, and Francostar, "just to name a few," as they put it on their website.
It's nice to know we don't need to shop for Depends quite yet. Unless, of course, our new girlfriend rolls that way. But we digress.
As you ought to be aware by now, we don't mind reviewing clone sites or sites that otherwise share personnel, but we're always delighted to point it out when this occurs. We could wish for a little more truthfulness in advertising, though, and we're always willing to call these guys out when they're being less than honest -- all too common an occurrence in the adult chat industry, sadly. The reason for our ranting? The website advertises itself as "100% Español" -- 100% Spanish. It isn't. It's not that these ladies and couples appear on those other sites we've already mentioned; we could see 100% Spanish girls doing that. It's that some of them claim to speak only French or English, which kind of gives the game away. Why would a 100% Spanish girl NOT speak Spanish? It boggles the mind.
Obviously we're a little irked, so you know that's one strike against 'em. But on to the ladies themselves. You can get a good idea of what to expect by looking at our JuicyNetwork review, actually. Indeed, the choice of performers is identical, and so is the roster of models. Not that we can knock the girls -- they're fine looking, and you get a lot of free video chat, once you sign up. There's a decent variety of performers, too, though we rarely saw more than ten or so online at any one time. Still, the fact that you can chat for free until the cows come home (or until someone takes your lady private) makes up for a lot. The video quality is good, too, and we were quite taken on our last visit when we watched hot li'l hellion Hellena sensuously peel and eat a perfectly innocent banana. Lucky banana. It's enough to make a reviewer want to go private.
Signing up is a simple matter of giving them your username, password, and email address, much like last week's favorite, CamContacts-- and, unsurprisingly, exactly like JuicyNetwork! Oh well, not having to get another account just makes everything easier, doesn't it? We're left to wonder, however, how often in the future we're gonna get surprised like this. We're already three-quarters through this review and we still haven't recovered from that shock, ya know?
But wait! There's something even more shocking here than unexpected membership in a site we'd never hear of before, and that's the stinkin' prices they charge. Now, we're not exactly misers or anything, but HispanoLive's minimum credit package, which includes 9 minutes of private chat (or 11 minutes of semi-private or 15 minutes of voyeur) costs a full 45 Euros. That's $62.36 in U.S. dollars -- or $6.93 per minute (!!!). Want the big, bad Ultimate package? That's 175 big bad Euros, or $242.18 = $5.91 per minute. Those are just about the highest rates we've seen, beyond even what JuicyNetwork charges.
One thing's for sure: at those rates, you're going to feel like you've been anally raped by the time you're done. If that's your idea of a good time, okay then. If not, we recommend that you not bend over and grab your ankles. You can get cheaper rates at…well, just about anywhere. What a contrast between this week and last: HispanoLive's got the highest rates we've ever seen but endless free chat, and CamContactshas no free chat and absolutely rock bottom rates (about a tenth of HispanoLive's, actually).
By the way, your daily deposit is limited to 800 Euros, or $1107.11 at current exchange rates. A hint: if you're feeding your addictions that much, boys, you just might have a little problem with impulse control going there.
But enough of that. How does HispanoLive stack up? Not too well. The girls are pretty and we like the free video. The dishonesty we're not too fond of, though, and the price for what you get is just too high. You can get much better video for much less almost anywhere else, so the final verdict is: don't bother with this one.
