The Cam Shows

Group Show

A group show is a private show in which the broadcaster or model entertains “privately” more than one viewer. Depending on the preferred settings by the model, a group show may require a certain amount of users (2,3,4, or 5) in order for the group show request to be approve-able by the model. Once it is approved, the users would automatically start paying a set amount of tokens per minute to the broadcaster, while being able to direct the show by asking the model to do or show specific sexy things.

Private Show

A private show is a kind of show where the broadcaster or model is in an exclusive chat with the viewer; other viewers in the chatroom would not be able to see the private show. In a private show, the viewer can totally direct the show by asking the model to do or show specific sexy things. The viewer automatically pays a certain amount of tokens per minute to the model, as set by the broadcaster. A viewer can request to enter a private show by clicking the “Start Private Show” button beneath the chat box of the model during a live broadcast.

Tokens

A token is a virtual currency that can be used in a number of ways. It can only be bought with real money. On Chaturbate, tokens can be used to buy a model’s pictures or videos. Users can also “tip” a model by giving out some tokens to the model, often in exchange for specific sexy requests such as asking the model to “flash” her breasts or strip. The monetary value of tokens varies for the buyers depending on quantity purchased, but is constant for the receivers (the models) who may convert the tokens to cash and get paid by Chaturbate with real money.
