Hmmm, what have we here? Why, it's TempoDeAntena, the notorious webcam portal from that hotbed of liberalism and sexuality, Portugal. All kidding aside, the Portuguese are apparently coming right along when it comes to adult chat sites. This site is kind of like JMeeting, IímLive and a few others, in that it offers other webcam subjects besides juicy pornography, but we're uncertain if they're serious about that or if it's just a front -- you know, like the way head shops masquerade as record stores, or New Jersey bookies pass themselves off as butchers. That kind of thing. Let's see now: there are 732 adult chat webcams, and 29 for everything else. That's a bit over a 25:1 ratio, which is why you're seeing this site reviewed on good ol' HomeWebcamsChat.com instead of, say, HomeRepairWebcamsChat.com or HobbyWebcamsChat.com, though we daresay it could find a berth there, too. Assuming those sites exist.
Admittedly, Tempo De Antena isn't huge, but it's interesting and it's trying hard to get there. From what we can tell, the models are almost all Portuguese, too, which may be part of the reason it's as small as it is right now: as a Western European country, fewer folks have the monetary need to take their clothes off for money (not that anything's wrong with that), so the people who do so must enjoy it, right? Right! That's a good thing, in our eyes. We didn't notice anyone here from Latin America or Eastern Europe, which is frankly kind of unusual for a site of this nature, though some of the girls could be from Brazil, which as you know is a Portuguese-speaking country. The limited slate of performers means that sometimes there's not much to be seen, especially if you're located way across the pond in a very different time zone, but there are usually a few ladies online -- and yes, they do seem to be home-based chat girls. °Viva Portugal!
Actually, you'll find more than just girls here. You gots your boy-girl couples, gay boys, gay boy couples, lesbian couples, trangendered folks, threesomes (woohoo!), fetish lovers, and even some "whip me, beat me, make me write bad checks" types (BDSM, for the uninitiated). While there's room for everyone on the adult chat boat, we, of course, homed in on the unattached girlies for our jollies, and were able to ascertain that, yes, most seemed to be entertaining us in their own intimate surroundings, which thrills us no end. This is exactly the kind of site we like. Fortunately we read Spanish, so we could usually puzzle out the messages on the profiles of the girls we were sweet on. Not that we paid much attention to what they'd written down -- too much exposed skin around! Anyway, there's a version of the site that's mostly done in English, which we read like a native, because, well, we are.
Mmmkay, so we're satisfied that what we've got here is some nice, choice homegirl honeys willing to chat with us right from their own bedrooms and living rooms. (There are plenty of homeboys and homewhatevers too, but we'll leave them for some other site to review). So how about the technical details? One thing we have to make you aware of is that every 24 hours, you get eight minutes worth of free chat, which isn't much -- but then it's not our duty to rate sites according to the amount of free chat, is it now? Some girls don't accept free chat, though; they're after the bucks or, in this case, the Euros. You can purchase them by Visa or Mastercard through something called MBNet, though if you're in Portugal you can have the money withdrawn by ATM from your bank account. How handy is that? You can purchase increments of $10, $25, $55, or $115 with relative ease. We assume that how long your dollars last varies according to the Euro/Dollar exchange rate, which is currently favorable for the Euro; but in any case all the ladies we saw were charging 1.44 to 2 Euros a minute, which is on par with other sites we've reviewed, and cheaper than some.
But what about technical quality, you may well ask? We may well answer that it's about what you'd expect of 700+ people with varying technical abilities. Some of the hosts have high-quality broadband video, some don't. Some look like they could be in pro studios (and sure, maybe they are), but some don't even seem to know the know the meaning of teh term "appropriate lighting," which is to be expected of amateur entertainers. No harm, no foul. Some hosts even include audio, which doesn't appeal to us, since it tends to slow down our computer. But you know, this is how it goes with homegirls. It's kind of like that box of chocolates that Forrest Gump's mom talks about: you never know what you're going to get -- and that's a big part of the fun.
So give Tempo De Antena the once-over if you like homegirls, but don't be surprised if you don't find many girls about. The pickings do improve in the evening, however, as night falls in Portugal.
