Welcome back to the sequel of our Beginner’s Guide to Live Mature Sex Cams. In the first part, we explained a bit about the history of live cams and how they came to be so successful. We will continue now with an in-depth review of each of the sites we mentioned in Part 1, to make it easy for you to make a choice.
There are plenty of sites to choose from and if you are new to the whole thing, it can be confusing and even intimidating to choose the one that is best suited for you. Hopefully, this guide will make the process less stressful and easier.
We will kick off with premium adult webcam sites. As you may remember, these are the site that put the focus on quality. They usually lack a free public component, and even if they do have it, it is more of a preview for the real thing – private rooms where all the action is. All that quality does come at a cost, though.
In the second part, we will review several of the free cam sex sites. These are very popular due to the fact that they are mostly free, with emphasis on mostly. You can still tip models, but you aren’t required to do so, you can enjoy their performance without spending any money if you choose so.
Featuring one of the best site designs in the business, Streamate looks and feels expensive, which it can be. The prices range from affordable $2.99 per minute to nose-bleeding $20 per minute, depending on the model you choose. And there are plenty to choose from, with quite a few of the girls being quite gorgeous. Then again, if you are paying 20 bucks per minute, gorgeous is the least you are expecting.
The site features an advanced search option, allowing you to easily find what you are looking for. Models are divided into categories, which are easily navigable and you can find your favorite niche or a model in no time at all, reducing the time you waste on browsing and searching.
With more than 2,000 models in their catalog, Streamate is one of the most popular live cam sites on the net. The equipment these girls use is top of the line and streaming in 720p is the norm. Models set their own prices and you can get a private room with any of them, but beware, other users can also join in. If you want a truly private encounter, you need to choose the Exclusive option, which will cost even more.
With between 500 and 600 artists online at any time, Cams.com is a very large site, with plenty of models to choose from. The design is nothing special, but it gets the job done There is a large search bar on the left side of the screen that allows you to set your parameters, like age or ethnicity. The navigation can be a bit slow at times, especially when you are changing rooms, but if you stick to the private rooms, there should be no problem.
The site features Buzz mode, which lets you control the girls’ toys with your tips. Essentially, when you tip a certain amount (4 tokens for regular buzz or 12 for a super buzz), the vibrator she is using buzzes, allowing you to see her reaction in real time. This type of interactive action is quickly becoming the norm for all cam sites, as the price of the equipment goes down.
The prices vary from $2 per minute to $7 per minute. Some specialized stuff not covered by standard fees can be also negotiated for a larger fee. There are also uploaded videos of artists that can be viewed for a discounted price, making the site more affordable.
Unlike other premium sites, XCams doesn’t really believe in free content. Most of the other sites will let you see the girl before requesting the private chat, but XCams will charge you even for that. These shows are called private, but other users can join in as well, aren’t really expensive, ranging from $2 per minute to $3 per minute. Exclusive ones will cost you more.
You can talk to the girl before booking a private show, but that’s about it. That should give you an idea what is open to and what is off limits, so you can decide whether she is the right choice for you. Some of the thumbnails will have a little green token, telling you that you can watch 15 seconds of the stream for free, after which it will end, prompting you to pay off you want to continue.
The girls are mostly European and they speak English for the most part. There are quite a few babes in the mix and almost all of them use HD cameras for their shows. The search function is excellent, allowing you to set many parameters and narrow down your choices.
BongaCams is a tipping site, meaning that a vast majority of its content is free to use and users can tip models at their discretion. This sounds great until you take a look at the fine print.
The site design is mediocre at best and can be quite confusing to new users. The camera quality is all over the place, with both HD cams and older blurry ones thrown into the mix. This is something that should be unacceptable in today’s age. Even those that are HD sometimes stutter and can be quite choppy, which means that their Internet connection is in desperate need of an upgrade.
Private chats with other users present will cost you about $5.50 per minute, while exclusive access can be even more expensive. One nice feature BongaCams offer is Spycam, which lest you get a preview of a private room, but in a blurry mode. This enables you to see if what is happening is to your liking and help you decide if you should pay for access.
The site’s search function is a robust one, allowing for an easy navigation and search. The mobile site has a few glitches and isn’t as fluid as some other sites.
StripChat can be used without registration, but registering will give several handy options that are very useful. Plus, all you need is an email and the process doesn’t take long. Registered users can add favorite models, plus girls often don’t want to chat with guests if they don’t have an account.
The site’s design is excellent, with a very good search engine that allows you to browse all the usual option, like age, ethnicity, or body type.
Most of the girls use HD cameras and the quality of the stream is excellent, crisp and fluid. There are quite a few of them that use interactive toys that activate upon tipping, so you see the result of your actions instantly.
Private shows range from $3 per minute up to as much as $20 per minute. This gives you an exclusive access to the girl’s feed. There is a cam2cam option if you would like for her to see you too. Gold members (gold membership cost $20 per month) have an option to spy on other users’ private rooms, which seems like a handy option. The site also offers male, transgender and couple performers.
CamSoda is a free live cam site (for the most part), but it does require a registration. You can choose not to spend a dime on the site and still get to see plenty of nudity and sex acts, but you won’t be able to join any rooms unless you are a registered user. This can be off-putting to some people, but the registration is fast and easy and all you need is an email, which you can create in minutes if you don’t one to use your own.
The design is pretty straightforward, typical for live cam sites and you won’t have any troubles browsing around. What it does lack is a better search engine. The one on-site only lets you search the most rudimentary options.
There are times when the number of girls online is quite low, often dipping in double digits, which can narrow down your options, but those seem like rare occurrences.
The site operates via tokens and most private shows will cost you about 30 tokens per minute, or $3 per minute. There are girls who will ask for a higher price, but that is up to you if you want to accept it.
My Free Cams is one of the oldest the best cam sites on the Internet. There are thousands of models to choose from (and not all are girls, there are plenty of guys, trans, and couples who work there) and it remains the industry leader even after all these years.
Girls work from either a studio or their homes, but the quality of the stream is always top notch. One thing that almost no other site offers are legitimate porn stars, who often put on the shows for My Free Cams audience. Many of them have even started their career on this site.
All these you can access for free. You can tip girls or request private show, but the majority of the content is absolutely free.
The search function is called the model explorer and it is a very detailed one. You can search by body type, ethnicity, even eye color. This guarantees that you will find exactly what you are looking for in a matter of minutes. Add in the settings bar that let you customize the front page and sort models in several ways and the functionality of the site is superb.
Cam4 features four main categories, girls, guys, trans, and couples. The number of models online at any time can be over a thousand, which allows for a very wide selection.
The registration is optional and free and they will throw in 50 tokens to get you started. The search option is very handy, allowing you to set your preferences with the usual options.
The models come from all over the world, and if you want to chat, make sure you check English as a language in the search bar.
If you want to see anything else but a model sitting on the bed semi-naked, you will have to spend those tokens. Cam4 has an interesting option, called a dice. You pat tokens and roll the dice and the model performs any action that comes out. Or you can just tell them what you want to see.
You can pay via tokens or you can choose one of the plans the site offers for a monthly fee. Different plans offer different perks, so you make sure to read up on them before committing.
Other Niched Sites
Al the sites we reviewed are intended for what you might refer to a general public. If you are looking for a more specialized stuff, then you will need to visit one of the niche sites that offer fetish video chat. There are plenty of these to choose from as well, but you may need to search a bit deeper to find them. Some of the truly bizarre sites don’t even advertise, relying instead on the word of mouth marketing to reach their potential users.
