Specialty adult cam website Stripchat.com today reported a significant surge in online traffic this past week during the Valentine’s Day holiday
Executives for the live striptease site, which includes xHamsterLive, noted an increase of 8.29% on February 14, and 14.81% on February 15, compared to the online influx of a regular ‘non-holiday’ 24-hour period, with 3% more male than female users during this time.
The data results could indicate that there are more singles out in the world – OR could it be that couples are getting more experimental and opting for live sex as opposed to porn. Actual Stripchat performers confess to performing varying arousing experiences, especially non-sexual ones. The experience could be comparable to a typical Valentine’s “dinner date”, with the main difference being the user is gazing through a browser.
It could be quite shocking that most people visiting the cam site
, are not just there to engage solely in sexual interactions. Nor are users simply looking for the most gorgeous model on the site to entertain themselves. “There appears to be a deeper craving from site visitors. And it proves to be quite evident that the models that make the biggest incomes are the ones that know how to deeply connect with users” expresses Jim Austin, Head of Business Development.
According to cam models, the non-sexual (and non-nude) acts often drive the models’ biggest earnings, and even more son during cupid’s week. There’s a whole bunch of users that have that “girlfriend experience” with models, which makes sense that traffic would increase on this particular holiday. There’s no direct way to find out if the traffic is singles or not, but the fact there was an influx does paint a picture of people wanting to do some kind of activity (not always sexual) on Valentine’s Day.
, which has a few years in the industry, states that it’s very usual for devoted fans to spend a long private session on this romantic holiday. Even if it means they spend more on a longer private show, they’re willing to give more tokens to spend a “date” with them. And what’s even more interesting is when a couple wants a private show with a model.
Camgirl, Angel Eyes
, overall has a lot of couples who watch together, including her and her husband. But this Valentine’s Day this year on cam, was different than the other years. Who actually had more private shows with couples than last year as she stated.
also saw a considerable lift in activity with its token payment system, as viewers spent 25% more on the webcam models – and tipped 15% more – on Valentine’s Day.
Geographically, the new users’ traffic increase comprised 5% of Americans, 1.22% of Germans and Australians following close behind at 1% during the three-day period.
Austin also noted an overall 6% increase in mobile users during the February 13-15 period:
64% mobile, 29.06% desktop, 6% tablet, up from February’s first-week traffic of 58.81% mobile, 34.91% desktop, 6.28%tablet. What’s really interesting is that mobile users spent an average time of 9 minutes and 40 seconds while PC users spent an average of 11 minutes and 15 seconds on the site.
“In addition to the spike in mobile users, what’s important to note this year is that, so far, we’re still seeing residual benefits as the numbers have held on steadily into this week, with only a slight dip, and hopefully we can continue to keep the steady flow of traffic going into spring.”
