5 Live Video Chat Sites with Amateur Performers
Being a pro is generally considered a good thing, but in live cams, users definitely gravitate towards exhibitionist performers that just want to show off, rather than the polished, seasoned performers who also usually occupy only premium sites and cost much more. Here are the top five sites for these flawlessly flawed models that don't have a guide book, but just wing it using their natural bodies, gorgeous faces, and fun accessories like toys, costumes and their wit.
CamSoda has garnered rave reviews not only as the best freemium cam site around, but one of the all time greats in general. With over 600 performers online at all hours, all displayed in their glory with a live stream instead of a static profile, it's fun just to hang out on the main page. The site also offers tons of perks for one and all, such as free recordable privates, a great mobile platform with c2c, and even free Exclusive Vids the site itself produces.
When going into a particular model's cam room, you'll see her username, her ratings, an option to get an email when the host comes back online if she is otherwise occupied, an option to tip and to go private, send a private message, and a media section where she can upload pictures and/or videos at her leisure. You can switch to full screen too, and select the HD button to fully enjoy your viewing experience. You'll also see fun animations and a connection to their social media.
Prices start low on CamSoda, at $0.55 a minute, but the average price is surprisingly high, at $2.70 a minute, though it does include cam-to-cam and two-way audio. If you prefer to keep things on the budget-friendly side, you can choose any one of the other chat shows, which are far less expensive – Ticket Shows, Voyeur Shows and Spy Shows. And don't forget you can also chat with your object of affection on mobile with cam2cam, at no extra cost.
CamSoda also wins in the category of recorded videos, as it houses an impressive collection of free Exclusive Vids, made by the site itself, in crisp high definition, and sometimes even starring well-known porn stars. It's important to note that though the site has a filtering fiunction, it's not always reliable, so I would recommend browsing the live streaming rooms on the main gallery page until you find that perfect amateur honey.
Stripchat is a great freemium site to be sure, but where it truly shines is the level of kink, and the sheer amount of fetish categories, in the hundreds. Among the 3,000 amateur gals always online, you'll usually find most streaming in impressive HD levels of 720p and 1080p. One more thing to note is that the site is one of the only live cam attractions to include around 20 virtual reality rooms always online, which makes the cam2cam experience with a newbie performer that much more intimate.
Stripchat doesn't have a video preview feature, so you'll have to enter a room to really see what's going on inside. Luckily, Stripchat is freemium, so you're bound to see some crazy adult action while sifting through the rooms. If you have a particular fetish in mind, just select the All Categories button on the bottom of the left hand filter, and before you will appear all kinks, in alphabetical order, gems like Yoga GILF, Colorful, Colombian Athletic, and countless others on all sides of the fetish spectrum.
A private show on the site will cost you an average of $2.10 a minute, but many models only charge $0.70 a minute. To lower costs, you can book a set time in advance, a minimum of minutes with your lady. Some models also charge extra for the two-way video and audio, but it depends on the performer. Good news is that models allow recordings your private sessions, for free, which you can also rewatch at any time, at no cost. You can find these generous ladies under the Recordable Privates category under the aforementioned All Categories.
Models also love to play, and many offer tipping menus that connect to their sex toys, which you can control. In addition, the tipping menus include a collection of sex acts the ladies will gladly perform if you just provide the right incentive. If you find a particular amateur enticing, consider joining her Fan Club, which will not just give you discounts and perks, but — If she really likes you — The power to kick out users in her room.
BongaCams is where you go not just for the variety of 1,000 models, HD+ (1080p) quality rooms, but a worldly kind of experience, with models from Europe, North and South America, Asia – Anywhere there's an internet connection, really. You can easily find Russian romantics, French feisty chicks, African stunners, or Filipino exotics. The site has a great filter as well as a tagging system, and it looks a little like a social media site, which is fun. The only real downside are the constant pop-up ads, which are a bummer.
BongaCams has a super cool feature that lets you keep watching a sex cam room, while searching for another. If you scroll down while in a chat room, or click to go back to the main page, the video screen you're watching will minimize. You can take your time choosing a new room, while still seeing if something interesting is still happening in the room you were last in. And if any issues come up, feel free to use the site's excellent customer service, available 24/7 to all users.
The main reason why BongaCams is not higher up on this list despite its insane selection of hotties, is its prices. BongaCams may be free, but many of its models will save the climax of their show for private, or until they're tipped enough. And while how much you tip depends on you, the price of a private show does not, and costs $3.30 a minute, and an added $2 at least for an exclusive private without spies peeking in.
But the site also shines with it's cam site promotions. If you make a purchase from your mobile phone, you'll get back 50% of the tokens you have spent as a gift (Up to 100 tokens). If you refer an amateur-loving friend, you get 50% back from his first purchase. Also, when you join the site and make your first purchase, you're considered a Gold member for life, and get a nifty sum of 10 free tokens (Worth around $10).
Chaturbate is one of the most well-known freemium cam sites, for a variety of reasons. Employing over 4,000 amateur webcam models online at all hours, providing stellar HD and HD+ quality rooms that stream in up to 4K, lots of free action of sex and nudity in the open rooms, and of course the amazing performers on the site, which make the word 'amateur' lose all meaning with their attention to detail, bedroom skills and how they take care of their viewers, even if there are dozens watching at the same time.
As mentioned above, Chaturbate is distinguished by its superior streaming quality. Many of its thousands of performers broadcast at HD+ (1080p) and HD (720p) quality. You'll also encounter models who use 4K cameras promising you an unparalleled viewing experience. To find these rooms, simply hit the Options link on the top right of the main site, and tick the Prioritize HD Cams to ensure you only view the best HD the site has to offer.
On average, a private performance will set you back around $1.10 a minute. Bear in mind that the action takes time to get going so you may want to tip extra, for example, to turn on her interactive toy if she has one. That certainly speeds things up. You also have the option to join models' Fan Clubs that provide extra content, control their pleasure toys just by tipping, and even send your gifts directly from their Amazon wish-lists. Also, enjoy the fun mobile version that despite not having c2c, is equally as great as the desktop site.
If you intend to spend a large proportion of your time and energy on Chaturbate, you should consider joining its VIP program. For $19.95 a month you'll become a Supporting Member and get access to premium features, which include an ad-free interface, custom chat fonts, animated room images and different colors, sending private messages to performers and tipping them anonymously. In addition, receive a one-time bonus of 200 tokens, worth $20.99.
MyFreeCams is among the longest running cam sites, as it launched in 2004, and has stayed focused on offering high quality sessions with sexy amateur cam girls. Unlike many other live chat sites, there are no guys, couples, or trans categories to choose from. This precision focus has allowed the site to gather a solid collection of beautiful girls who are ready to get down and dirty 24/7. And for those who love American girls, you're in luck, you'll find a large collection of yankee babes on MyFreeCams.
One of the coolest things about MyFreeCams is the ability to personalize your experience. To find your preferred models, once you've logged in, go to the Personal Options area that appears under the main user Menu. From there, tap Model List Settings and then select the options from the different categories. You can tailor the results even further by selecting if you want these girls prioritized and on top of the results, hidden totally, or as the only available rooms you will see.
The price for a minute of private stays an all-site price of $5.40 a minute, no matter who you're chatting with. For an exclusive chat with no spies you'll need to add another $2 to this already hefty price. One awesome benefit that you do get without any additional cost is a free recording of your private sessions, which are then accessible by tapping archives in the main menu area.
Lastly, it's important to let you know that MyFreeCams is one of few sites that allows you to turn on your cam during free open chats. This can get you more attention from the amateur performers, but they also will expect a nice tip in exchange for this privilege.
There's no doubt about it, to get the best amateur models, along with the best live cam experience and free content, CamSoda is the way to go. It's not the cheapest site, but it does offer the most for your buck, with live streaming rooms, free exclusive full-length videos, HD quality cams, mobile with cam2cam, and so much more.
