Fear not, gentle readers; SeventeenLive isn't the teen girl-oriented fluff site you may have been worried about, given the teen girl-oriented Cosmo wannabe magazine of somewhat the same name. Oh, there are teen girls all right, and if most of them aren't fluffheads we're no judges of character; but this here's a gen-yew-wine adult chat site, complete with scantily clad (and often unclad) girls willing to charm your pants off. Remember, the URL here is SeventeenLive.com; the stuff on this site would probably curl the hair of the folks who run Seventeen.com. After all, while that site is also preoccupied with sex, they'd die before they did more than beat around the bush when discussing it. The girls of Seventeenlive like to beat around the bush, too, but in an entirely different context, if'n you know what we mean… and we think you do.
This site reminds us a lot of VoyeurDorms (aka CandidFriends), which is another all studio, all girly-girl site. Look at all that pink, and all that taut, young, often-naked flesh. Where does the "seventeen" in the name come from? Who knows -- there are certainly more than 17 babes present on the site (apparently there are hundreds, in all), and hopefully the girls are older than 17 (at least that's what the claim at the bottom of the page says). Let's write it off as poetic license, like Exxon's old claim about having a tiger in the tank, or the general lack of owls at Hooter's restaurants.
You can tell just from looking that this is one of those sites where youth is worshipped and no model over thirty is trusted. The girls are cute and all, but so much for variety, eh? Look at all those giggly teenagers. Don't try to tell yourself they're all innocent, either; you can't see it here, but they get pretty nasty further down the page, as in, well, beating-around-the-bush time. With everything from ears of corn to cucumbers. Man, wouldn't that make a great salad?
One thing you'll immediately notice is that this is a studio operation. They make it clear from the very beginning: no homegirls here. This saddens us exceedingly. While they do decorate their studios with paintings and other home-style trappings, it's not even possible to pretend they're broadcasting from their homes. Hell, half the chat host thumbnails look like they were taken in the very same room. Either that, or they got a really great deal from a hotel-room designing firm somewhere.
In addition to being of limited variety in regards to age, there's not much variety otherwise, either. The girls are all relatively slender and petite. They're not clones of each other, heavens no, but they're pretty much uniform nonetheless. Are you a BBW lover? Too bad, though one or two seemed a little bit fleshier than the norm. Better check 'em out quick, because they'll probably be fired by next week. Plus, most of the performers are B-cups or thereabouts, so no joy for you lovers of the small-or larger-breasted. And they're all white, as far as we can tell. But hey -- their hair color varies! You've got brunettes and blondes, and one or two with auburn hair. You know something? We hate to say it, but it amazes us that you could have a site with so many girls on it and still have a boring selection. We like vanilla ice cream as much as the next guys, but how about the opportunity to choose some strawberry, or chocolate, or maybe some rum raisin rocky road?
But enough of comparing women to ice cream, though both are sweet and creamy and tend to melt in your mouth. If you decide to ignore the site's lack of homegirls, you'll discover that it's got a few things that make it attractive, especially the fact that you just pay a monthly membership and that's it -- no worries about paying the girls when you go to chat, although tipping is strongly encouraged. You have the option to pay by credit card or mobile phone, though the latter isn't available in the U.S. of A. If you go with the credit card option, you can pay with Visa, Maestro, or MasterCard, and the rate is €24.95 per month (that's about US $37.11). Naturally, the fee auto-renews in 30 days, which we don't like, but you can always cancel your membership by email right from the payment page (or so they say). If you want to save a little money, you can try a 90-day membership for €70.95 (about $105.53). If that's too much, try it out for three days at €9.95 ($14.80).
This being entirely a studio site, we didn’t sign up for a membership, so we didn’t get access to any of the girls -- and you get precisely zero minutes of free time to check things out. Judging from the free clips you can access, however, you can expect so-so broadband on the chat hosts. You can also access a free live feed, supposedly, but no one was ever there when we checked. Oh well. That's too bad: if the ads are at all accurate, the girls have the tendency to get down and dirty, though we suspect they save their best moves for the paying customers.
Our final word? Seventeenlive is a cute site, but we can't recommend it. This is a review site for lovers of homebased chat, and Seventeenlive is strictly a studio enterprise. You can pay for some lovin' anyway if you like, but don't say we didn't warn you.
