Jerkmate is an affiliate website of Streamate, based in Eastern Europe and featuring models from all around the world. Viewers can access Jerkmate through both jerkmate.com and jerkmatelive.com
From the outset, Jerkmate lures users in with a unique interface, kind of like a sexy callback to the good old days of ChatRoulette, but this time with the chance to filter who they get matched with. After being asked to choose between just two gender selections, users are immediately hooked up with someone on the other side of a camera, who seems to be waiting just for them. This layout is nothing like the usual chat sites with endless scrolling: just one video on the left, and a handful of helpful filtering questions on the right, to guide the user to their best match.
Jerkmate, while it looks like a unique site, is actually just Streamate, but with a different layout to help keep viewers from getting overwhelmed by too many models to choose from. This means that, once users go to register, they’re redirected to Streamate’s site. Like Streamate, users are given free initial guest chats with only above-the-waist nudity.
Once registered, all users can choose from three levels of chats to enjoy:
Since Jerkmate is Streamate – even their names are almost the same – the perks are identical. Signing up is free, and so is flirting on the Guest Chat. For all the other content, models set their own prices, which vary pretty wildly. It all depends on a model’s experience, availability, and kinks (if any).
In every show, viewers can tip models with Gold, which is one unit of the user’s currency (so one gold is $1, £1, or €1). The model gets just $0.35 of that.
Like Streamate, JerkMate has the option for Gold Clubs. It’s like Patreon, but sexier and just for your favorite cam models. Members can subscribe to a model’s special club and pay them a certain amount per month that the model sets. In return, members get discounts to premium and exclusive shows, and the model gives their subscribers:
All of these diverse features give viewers a lot of flexibility to find the right situation for their budget.
Since Streamate is a well-documented website, users can rest easy giving their information over to enjoy Jerkmate, and know their privacy will be valued. Being part of Streamate as well, users on Jerkmate will have the chance to choose from plenty of models to match their desires. But unlike Streamate, some users like having a model chosen for them, instead of having to scroll and hope they’ve made the right choice.
Ultimately, Jerkmate is just an affiliate link for Streamate, meaning someone’s making extra money off of users’ clicks – and it’s not the models. Taking over half of models’ earnings isn’t an honest practice for the models who work so hard or for the viewers who are spending their hard-earned money to spend time with the cuties of their dreams.
Although the layout promises some Chat Roulette fun, it’s really just a different way to draw more users into Streamate. If that’s your thing – have at it. But if you’re looking for a different kind of webcam site that pays their models more than 35% of their earnings, keep looking.
