We’ve been involved into live cams for over a decade now, in more ways than one. We were excited when the first cam sites starting showing up around the web. We all remember ifriends, right? I’m not 100% sure that was the first cam site ever, but it was definitely one of the ones that started it all.
Whatever the name of the sites, they weren’t great, at least not by today’s standards. The video connection was lagging at best and the design and features…well let’s just say the idea behind it was great, everything else…not so much.
Of course, they were limited by the technology available at that time. As with everything today, the more we develop technologically the better the service gets.
It was just a matter of time until other cam sex sites started popping up around the web.
Back in the early days, CamContacts was another very popular destination for cam users. Just like I mentioned in our review of the site, their service hasn’t really changed all that much during this time. For me at least, it’s hard to believe a site can maintain its basic layout and features for this long.
I believe things really started evolving once LiveJasmin made its entrance. It wasn’t much of a cam site at the beginning, but somehow they managed to raise the bar during the years and developed, at least from our point of view, one of the best live sex sites out there, maybe the best.
Compared to most of their competition, they are years ahead if we look at the amount of online models, models’ gallery quality and most importantly the site’s speed and that of their live video feeds.
Of course, there are other great sites out there, some of them with more exciting features and probably more gorgeous models. Streamate powered sites are a great example of that. The site is packed with a lot of cool features and rivals LiveJasmin in speed and video connection quality.
The problem with these types of sites is that they are pretty expensive. Most of them, including FapShows and ImLive have one main way of interacting with the cam models and that is by going into a private chat. Sure, free chat is available with almost all these sites, but that’s mainly to attest that the cam girl you’re watching is really the one you’re looking for. Most webcam girls will not really sustain a conversation during the free chat and will certainly not reveal any kind of nudity. So if you’re hoping for PornHub like hardcore action during a free chat session on one of these sites, forget about it, it won’t happen.
Private chat is the way to go here, if you can afford it.
How much does it cost?
Depends on the site and the girl you’re looking to hook up with, but it’s usually anywhere between $0.99 USD and $4.99 USD per minute. That would make an average cam session cost about $3 USD per minute. Let’s say you get chatty and spend about 2 hours in a private chat at this rate, that would be $360 USD. Not cheap, is it?
This is where sites like MyFreeCams, Chaturbate and BongaCams come into play.
Remember when I said not to expect any real hardcore xxx stuff during a free chat on sites like LiveJasmin?
Well, things are very different with the sites mentioned above. They have a totally different business model, they’re free for everyone to watch.
Although it’s available, cam girls no longer earn most of their income from private chats, they earn it during the free chat by having members tip them. Any registered member can tip them and there’s no limit to the amount of tokens(virtual coins used to tip the cam girls. Value of the token depends on each site, but on Chaturbate for example, it starts at around $0.10 USD per token) one can tip.
But how does it really work?
It’s really simple. Most models have what you might call a “goal” or a status. Usually the goal is to reach a certain amount of tokens. So let’s say one model sets a goal to get naked once she reaches 100 tokens and there are 100 registered members in that room. If each of those members tip 1 token, she’d reach the goal in no time and everyone in the room would get to see her naked, including guests.
So why become a member if you can watch the live sex show for free?
Well, it’s because the more registered members there are that are willing to tip in a room, the faster the model reaches the goal and starts the show. And it’s so cheap, for less that $1 you can get a live cam show you will never forget.
OK, then why not just forget about sites like LiveJasmin, ImLive etc.?
Because it’s a totally different experience. With LiveJasmin like sites you can get pretty intimate with the model you choose to watch, because most of the times it’s just you and her in the private room. So if you’re looking to connect with the model and also watch a sexy show, then free cam sites might not be for you.
Which is the best?
I don’t think that’s the right question to be honest. It depends from user to user. Even the same user might feel differently from day to day.
It all comes down to what’s best for you. What do you like? What do you feel like watching?
We strongly suggest signing up on a few of these sites and testing them out.
If you’re not sure where to start, check out our reviewed sites, we went and signed up to those sites to help our visitors understand them and help them decide if they’re worth the effort of becoming a member there or not.
Are the reviews real?
Yes, they are 100% real. We actually sign up to every site that we review on webcamchamps.com and buy credits. We try to use as many of each site’s features as we can, but we never leave out private chat or tipping.
Sometimes we use special features like phone calls etc., but we rarely do that, since we don’t think a lot of people are interested in that.
We like to looks at each site’s features, design, number of online models, video streaming quality, payment options and cost. Those are the things that matter the most in our opinion.
If you’d like us to review any specific feature of a live cam site, you can always contact us and we will try to do that as soon as possible.
Why did we make this site?
We’re live cam users as well and we got overwhelmed by the plethora of cam sites that are out there these days. Some of which are real and some of which are not.
We thought it would be cool to have a site that lists only the best cam sites out there, sites that we review in depth and that we actually use on a regular basis.
But that’s not all what WebcamChamps is about.
WebcamChamps manually selects the best live sex cams sites on internet. We carefully review each addition before assigning it to a category on our site.
We’re trying to write a detailed review for each cam site that we add, but as you can imagine, that’s a time consuming process. There are tons of good sites out there, so if you think we’ve missed any of them, or you’d like us to do a review for a specific site, please feel free to contact us using this form.
