Show + sites like ArchiveBate:
Archivebate sounds like it could be a librarian’s preferred method of self-pleasure, at least if we’re taking the name at face value. Of course, we live in the golden age of internet pornography, and it shouldn’t be all too difficult for regular consumers of the stuff to see what these guys are really getting at with the title. The “bate” in the name here isn’t a generic reference to masturbation, though you can definitely do plenty of whacking off while you peruse the titular archive. Nah, that bate’s a nod to Chaturbate, one of a handful of the sources from which this masturbatory library is stocking their sticky shelves.
Live webcam sex sites have come a long way since their initial rise to prominence in the early ‘00s. The format has been polished and refined, and there are more girls flashing their tits and fingering their twats on bedroom cams than ever before. One of the biggest remaining drawbacks is simply the live nature of it all; if you ain’t online when your favorite camwhore is, you’re going to miss the show.
Enter Archivebate.com, a free video tube consisting of prerecorded shows from your favorite webcam sex platforms. It’s a simple but immediately enticing premise, seeing as how it fills in an obvious gap in the typical webcam setup, something that may well have given you an aching case of blue balls in the past. They’re a new site, living on a domain registered just a couple months ago, but they’re already pulling thousands of visits a month. Let’s see what all those cam fans are shaking their dicks at, shall we?
No Longer Live, but Still Sexy AFThe presentation at Archivebate is visually simple, dark and clean. The logo is a triangle that could be a sideways Play button, a dropdown menu, or a low-key Klansman secretly whacking off to all the sexy ebony camgirls among the roster. The thumbnails are tiny if you’re looking at the desktop version, so small that you might not immediately realize you’re looking at an adult site. The mobile version is more visually explicit to those with regular eyesight, with full tube-style thumbnails stretched across your tiny screen.
Oh, and let’s talk about those thumbnails. Even if you didn’t get the reference from the site’s name, the preview pics make it clear what they’re working with around here. Instead of the usual porn scene screencaps, these ones are clearly cam shows. There are women showing off their tits, playing with pink internet-connected Lovense vibrators, and sometimes just sitting around looking sexy.
I’m not immediately sure what the criteria for inclusion on Archivebate, but I will tell you this: there’s a lot more going on than you’d get if you pulled a random selection of cams from a random selection of cam sites. Even before I’d left the front page, I saw a nice, wide variety of webcam-based sexual shenanigans. This ain’t an archive of bored, fully clothed girls waiting for tips, that’s for sure.
Live cam shows in the wild are overwhelmingly solo productions. While most of the videos on Archivebate.com also star just one camwhoring starlet, a ton of them feature full-on hardcore sex between two or more partners. Perusing the recent updates, I see lesbians getting it on, a couple threesomes and foursomes, and a bunch of boy/girl scenes. I found those all without even leaving the front page, which should give you an idea of how tightly the perversion is packed here.
As with any good cam site, there doesn’t seem to be any one particular type when it comes to women on Archivebate. Again, before I’d even left the front page, I saw a beautiful range of beautiful women. There are blondes, brunettes and redheads, Latinas, Asians and ebony chicks, exotic mixed babes and a whole lot of white (18+)girls. Some are MILFs, some are (18+)teens, and some fall in between. Likewise with the slim chicks, the fitness girls, chubby hotties and PAWGs. I didn’t see any BBWs out front, but the search bar brought back 17 pages of sluts with more cushion for the pushin’.
‘Bating to One Hell of an ArchiveThe site is called Archivebate.com, and I'm sure most of you have put two and two together; they are, indeed, drawing content from Chaturbate, as implied by the portmanteau. That ain’t all, though. They’re actually collecting webcam shows from multiple big cam platforms. The current list includes Chaturbate, Camsoda and Stripchat. The more, the merrier as far as I’m concerned.
While recording cam shows seems like an obvious thing to do, it’s also obvious why cam sites don’t do it. Even if they were just recording videos from one site, that would take an incredible amount of resources. I’m not sure if you’ve ever tried to start your own porn site, but those hosting plans can get pricey when you need a lot of storage and bandwidth. (Check out my other site, PornWebmasters, for more info and resources if you want to get into the game!) Chaturbate alone has thousands of women performing live at any moment, so imagine all those shows being funneled to one central location.
As I mentioned in my intro, Archivebate.com has only been live for a few months. Even considering their highly productive content sources, I was still blown away by the size of the current library. As of this writing, there are over 1.1 million webcam videos in the stash. Holy fucking shit!
This is the part of the review where I usually tell you how fast a website is growing. There are no real video titles on Archivebate, instead listing the time and date they were recorded. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any upload dates anymore. It’s obvious the site is growing fast as fuck, though, given the young age of the domain and the insane size of the library.
Getting Lost in the Sex Cam ArchivesGoddamn, I have a hard enough time deciding where to begin my fap tests on sites with a couple dozen dirty movies to choose from. Put a million filthy cam shows in front of my face and I’m damn near paralyzed. Do I start with a traditional solo striptease and masturbation exhibition, some kinky ASMR or foot fetishism, or go all-out with some hardcore fucking?
If there’s one obvious downside to the setup, it’s that Archivebate.com has minimal organization of any kind. Each video lists the model’s handle on her chosen platform, the time and the date, but nothing else. There are no tags to help you find your favorite kinks, niches and fetishes, which seriously limits the utility of the search function. The search I ran for BBWs earlier only turned up the 17 pages of them that had BBW as part of their name. Archivebate has a couple dropdown menus for their ”Advanced” search, but it only adds cam platform and gender options.
Fortunately, there were more than a few thumbnails out on the front page that caught my eye. I ended up clicking on a foursome with two Latinas sucking two cocks, which pulled up a 26-minute video of the action. My adblocker did a little bit of battling before the Play button did its job, but at least I didn’t get any popups. The girls are already sucking as the video begins, making loud gurgling noises as they bob their heads on cock. It’s actually one of my favorite sounds to hear when I’m conducting Pornstar interviews over at PornDudeCasting.
There’s no Download button built into the embedded video player, but you can save the movies easily by right clicking your mouse. If you’re having any issues with spam, this will give you an easier way to watch the movies, plus it makes Archivebate into a hell of a place to build your offline porn stash. Most tubes don’t have anywhere near this volume of content.
At the end of the day, that crazy high mountain of webcam depravity is going to be Archivebate.com’s biggest strength. Collections of this size are rare enough as it is, but Archivebate stands out even more by building this library in just a matter of months. I recommend typing your favorite camwhore’s name into the search bar and seeing what comes up. Chances are, they’ve got plenty of what you’re looking for.
