Bazoocam is a free web cam chat site with a difference. Members are paired randomly with each other in chat sessions. You don't get to choose who you will be matched with, the option you do have though is to skip if you don't like the look of the person or if they don't interest you.
It's very quick and easy to use Bazoocam. There isn't any lengthy signup or profile to fill out; to get started, you simply switch-on your webcam and click the "Start" button.
At once, you'll be matched with a complete stranger. You can chat away with written words via the messenger box, or use your microphone and speakers if you have them attached.
There aren't any descriptive profiles or other details displayed about people you may connect with as there are on other sites like Adultfriendfinder. One option you do have though is to restrict your conversation matches by distance. The site will display the other person's location and how far they are from you.
The "skip" button lets you rapidly switch between different users until someone catches your attention. The flip-side of this is that people may "skip" you if they don't like what they see (or hear). Don't take it personally just move on to the next.
The site is moderated and has rules regarding behavior - those who undress or show their private parts risk getting permanently banned. There's also a "report button" that lets you inform the site's administrators of any unsavory behavior.
Be prepared for surprises! I came across people talking on the telephone, and even doing the housework, not even paying attention to their webcams.
If you feel that you get along with someone well enough and the conversation runs dry, you can always challenge them to one of the site's in-built games. There's tetris, tic-tac-toe and four-in a-row. High-scorers are displayed on the site's "wall of fame".
Is it worth a look?
Bazoocam is both fun and addictive. The main drawback I found is that there isn't any way to filter your connections based on criteria such as age, gender and sexual preferences. But I guess that's the point!
It is available in several different languages; however the blog section is only available in French. Be prepared for links to adult sites, and despite the site's moderation some people do "get naked".
- Great concept
- Very fast and easy to use
- No lengthy questionnaires or boring profiles to read
- There isn't a filter for gender, or age
- Too many men, not enough women
- Purely random matches
