Herbicepscam.com review

Oct 18, 2021 - permalink

I think the site has really gone down hill. The VOD content is great but the actual girls on the cam site is not a great lineup. When they got started they had some huge names like Cindy Philips, Monique Jones, Britt Miller, Hazel Piazza etc…now a lot of the girls on there don’t even compete.

I’d like to see the site make a push towards getting some legit NPC & IFBB girls on the site and get rid of the webcam models.

They can only get models who want to get on cam. There are still a lot of very muscular women on the site.

Also, there are lots of muscular women who don’t compete.

If you give the right models incentive to be on cam they will do it.

"Right models" is an interesting idea. I think the right models are the ones who want to chat with and entertain muscle fans in a live, online setting. That's a very tiny percentage of the population. The women on HBC are incredibly unique.

Lisa Bickels, Brenda Raganot, Monica Mollica, Rosanna Harte, Hayley McNeff, Katka Kyptova, Xinli Cao, Penpraghai Tiangok, Melissa Dettwiller, Aleesha Young, Colette Nelson, Lauren Quinn, even Shannon Seeley popped in a couple times. Herbicepscam really had some superstars back in the day. You still got Rene Marven who pops up here in there. But yeah, the current lineup of girls don't really catch my eye other than Rene, Sarah Crail, Raluca Raducu, Emily Brand, and Ramona Nedelcu.

Man, can you imagine if they could get someone like Lauren Martin Stow or Blakelee Ortega?

FWIW pretty sure I saw Shannon Seeley pop up in the banner ad a few days ago, so she may still be active.

Reality is some of the women have retired or quit bodybuilding, and some may not be in the financial situation to require it anymore. There are still great women on the site. Also some of the very popular names who aren’t on cam are very conservative (not politically) and there’s no room for cam in that mindset.

Shannon's an all-time great and she's still around as her schedule permits.

Women like Angela Salvagno and Oana are 1, well 2, in TENS - if not hundreds - of millions. 99.9% of women who do work on HBC at any point in time will be or will have been at a completely different place in their lives 10 years from then, the same as every other population. I get liking your favorites - we all do - but I don't understand thinking that anyone's lives are static simply because they were awesome on social media or webcam.

Every day, I look at the lineup and think "Wow, that's a lot of awesome right there". Big Anastasia is on right now. She's a competitor and is one of the largest, thickest female bodybuilders in the world. Gemini_Swoll is also an active competitor who is coming up rapidly.

We hope that we're able to recruit and retain the talent who will give their clients optimum value and reason to keep coming back month-after-month. Thank you for sharing these thoughts.

I recently had my first time doing a hbcam session. For years I've avoided it because it seemed like a waste of money with the prices being charged per minute. And so many ladies on stand-by are the ones who's peak physique days have long since past. But I said fuck it and gave a go. Well I can see that my suspicions were pretty spot on. It's not terrible but it certainly isn't worth it.

I tried 3 different ladies and neither time did I feel like I actually got my $$$$$$ worth.

First woman was pretty good. She removed her clothing which I didn't even want her to do and started posing. She was too close to the cam and by the time I got her to back away a bit our session was about over.

Second woman had that WOW factor. But when we got into 1on1 she asked me what I wanted to see which I already made clear in chat. So re-sent and right when she starts flexing her cam freezes multiple times and so I just ended it after a couple minutes.

Third woman was more of the same. Once I get her to 1on1 she just starts flexing and didn't do what I originally asked.

Well that's 3 strikes and I'm done. Fansites and custom videos are where you can get the best bang for your bucks. Webcams? I get there's a little excitement to it, but overall it's too much money for such little reward.

This would be excellent and the gold standard if it had some features of other cam sites. But, I haven’t spent anything because I’m never there when my favorites are. And finding new favorites means going through everyone’s profile and then giving up.

Email notifications. There are no email notifications for when a favorite/fanclub model goes online, which is a big deterrent for me. I’m not going to open the site and keep my ears peeled for the “model online” sound that dings once.

Tags/“What I’ll do.” Fitness cams have a very broad range of content, generally broader than other cam sites. Some just want to flex, some will go “all the way.” It would be nice to know what the limitations are for each model instead of having to ask and risk going too far. Searchable tags would be great for this too. Tags would also help if you’re searching for specifics. Contest/off-season, bikini/fitness/figure/physique/bodybuilding, languages spoken, etc.

There is no search function at all that I could find. So when someone on here says “__ is great!” I can’t find ______ without having to look through the list of profiles, which are sorted in order of most recently online. The workaround is you can use a search engine with site:herbiceps dot com to find someone specifically.

It seems like if these changes could be made, it would get more people to visit the the ladies they want to see, get regulars for the ladies who might stay because they’ve developed a rapport with the users. And it would make more money for the site itself.

There used to be email notifications--at least on the original site, and i think on the revamp but i can't recall.

there is a "rules" option but not many women will actually use it to put their yes/no lists. i've seen them but it's not often.

personally i would like some kind of option to remove a woman from my account--as in maybe being able to parse the dead accounts and women i'll never stop by in to make it easier to search new ones. sometimes there are a lot of new women but the "newcomer" section is limited to two lines of 5.

I actually love Herbiceps because of the photos and vids of so many female bodybuilders but I'm not a fan of the cam part of it. I think I watched Lindsay Cope and Sarah Hayes vids so many times that I cannot get enough of them. Overall I'm satisfied with Herbiceps.com.

I don't go on much anymore, there's like maybe 30 models that are regulars, another 30 that come back for a bit here n there. The rest are either long gone or only pop up like maybe 5 days a year max. Even 3 years ago it seemed way more active then it is now. :(

I don't know the all of the motivations for any model to appear or not appear on webcam (certainly money is a factor) but there are certainly 2 common behaviors by certain customers that contribute to plenty of models deciding to quit.

  1. The abundance of captured videos that appear on porn sites without the knowledge or permission of the featured model.
  2. The poor behavior of chat room visitors, which includes demands for free flexes, annoying/obnoxious questions, and abusive comments.

Search feature: You can search by model name. There's a little magnifying glass icon at the top.

Other searches: We have considered this, but while I understand it's natural to draw comparisons to what's available elsewhere, HBC is unrelated to the major sites in the webcam arena, because we're a tiny fraction of their size. Right now, there are over 3000 models logged in on LiveJasmin, 1500 on Streamate, and 4000 on Chaturbate. We have 20. A high number for us during peak times is around 30-32, so every time an HBC user visits, they can see the full lineup on one screen or maybe one screen plus a couple more lines. We are always open to ideas that would improve the user experience, of course, and we want to add features that are practical.

Shopping profiles: That's the fun!

Email notifications: Total non-starter. It's one of those things that sounds like a good idea, but is actually terrible. lol When we had it before, we nearly got blacklisted as a spammer.

Listing a specificity of offerings is an interesting idea, thought I'm not sure how practical it would be for HBC because of the numbers. If the hosts buy in, though, I could see some potential value.

Thanks for that feedback!

Herbiceps cam is totally useless and is wonky at times. But the main site is really good and highly recommended.

Several users have requested this, but it's usually from guys who got pissed off at a model and want to block her. lol We may see it someday, but for now, we encourage user-side curation through the use of the "Favorites" button and list. It's more positive. :)

There are a number of incredible women who've been with us since the beginning or shortly thereafter - Queen, Angel, AngelA, Nuriye, Hot_Lisa, Catwoman, Babybeefcake, etc - and then we've got newer groups of regulars like Monstress and CurvyMuscleSensation who also make sure that, almost any time of day or night, 365 days a year, anyone can come to HBC and have a reliably good experience on the site.

The site is definitely more active today than it was 3 years ago. With respect to all those who did and have continued to struggle managing life in the pandemic, one of the things is did was to bring a few veterans back. Even if they elected not to remain long-term, it was great to have them on again. Women who are good at webcam are extremely unique in the world, so any chance to see them is great for me. But while some benefited during the rise of "work from home", for others, the rules had an opposite effect. Instead of being able to cam privately, having their entire families home all day full time left them unable to come on HBC at all.

If you haven't visited in a while, there are many new faces that the guys have been loving. Hope to see you again soon.

All facts. :(

We do devote hundreds of hours a year to fighting piracy and privacy violations, but the battle is never-ending. We address abuse issues immediately and remove those persons from the site. We don't want their patronage.

What you stated makes those hosts who do endure all the more special...

Thanks for the response. I still go on sometimes but it's mostly just to see QueenB, she more then anyone keeps me coming back, she's usually pretty active too. Monstress and Curvy I've done shows with before both really good too.

As someone who's been spending a lot of time and money on hbc, here's my honest opinion:

Pros:

  • Like or not, it's the best and basically only webcam site dedicated to muscular / sporty girls. Sure, you can find a few on other cam sites such as Chaturbate, but those in good shape are extremely rare and they are generally clueless about the stuff guys like us prefer.

  • The model's profile page has dedicated sections for stats such as weight, height and athletic background.

  • There are plenty of model-made videos at pretty affordable prices, especially if you have also stack the VIP discount. Some girls even have videos which only cost 10 credits. It's true that there are some insanely overpriced ones too.

  • You can find girls with martial arts experience, something very rare (although there are plenty who lie too).

Cons:

  • I think most of the cons actually stem from the small amount of users on the site. Since free chats are mostly empty and people rarely tip, most girls won't move a damn finger unless you go private, even if you do tip.

  • This private-centric business model makes things pretty awkward. If you enter a room you are expected to go 1:1 or gtfo.

  • Unlike Chaturbate for instance, most girls would not be willing to do anything besides ultra quick flexes in free chat, even if you tipped big.

  • It's hard to be willing to pay $5-$8 / minute unless you have at least a rough idea of what you're getting. Some models sit there fully clothed or with only their faces showing. You go private and after you're milked of $20-$30 they stand up or do what you asked (again, this is the case for some, not all).

  • It is true you occasionally run into time-wasters and, although very rarely, outright rude ones.

  • Some girls either have poor internet connections or bad cams (or it may be a server issue, don't know).

A few suggestions in my humble opinion:

  • Email notifications would be nice, especially for when certain models go online.

  • I wish the search function worked on the text on their profiles / videos too, not only the model name.

  • The tags idea someone mentioned here sounds pretty cool. Or at least incentivize them somehow to write in their status / description or rules page a clearer list of what they're willing to do or not.

  • Maybe a tip menu and tip goals (like Chaturbate has) would make the free chats more lively and thus draw more users to the site? I remember a few occasions when Carolyne (and I think Noah too) said she would do a flex show in free chat. The room was packed with like 60 or 70 people and the goal was reached.

To the users who had bad experiences, some great performers in my opinion are:

  • Monstress (she wastes 0 time)

  • Candy Marsh (also wastes no time, looks great, very sweet personality)

  • Queen B (as far as I remember also wastes no time)

  • Katya Peaches (very polite, writes fast, amazing karate skills)

  • Curvy is also very sweet, looks great, talks with her voice and does something no other model does - she prefers to go Premium first and never goes straight to 1:1. She also does shows with other people (Nick and IFBB Pro)

  • Strong_And_Tasty - Also polite and very sweet in private, great bjj skills
