Webcam sites – things to consider before you purchase
Porn is one of the most Googled topics on the internet today. The industry has blown up and there are tons of movies out there and sites offering free trials to get you to sign up. However, the same old plots about naughty nurses and horny high school teachers can be monotonous.
People want something different these days, something LIVE, and cam girls offer this and much more. With their rising popularity, adult webcam sites have become ubiquitous on the internet. Not all of them are worth clicking on though. There are many annoying and potentially dangerous sites out there that you should be able to identify immediately if you want to avoid being the victim of a scam. From stealing your identity (click to check, how to be safe on cam sites) to phony subscriptions, you could be in for a nasty surprise if you don’t know what to look out for.
This guide will help you land at the right places;
What kind of webcam site are you looking for?
There is an overabundance of live webcam sites on the net and it’s a lot of work sifting through all of them to find something that you like.
First of all, you could use specific words in your search that would narrow down your options.
Currently, there are many choices to go for which differ on subscription prices, models and features.
Typically, you have two basic options, the free- (freemium model like BimBim or Chaturbate) and the paying webcam sites (like Livejasmin).
Usually, in the free webcam sites you can watch the models to play themselves free, but you can not interact with them directly without a token or credit purchase. It feels like a group chat. Of course, you can be a paying member in these sites as well in order to unlock a truckload of new features, and you can pay extra (tips) for the models, to see more interesting things. But in this case, other visitors will see the results as well.
The paying cam sites model gives only limited features for first. You have to become a premium member with a small purchase at least.
This option gives you access to a gamut of features not available on the free platforms. This type more personal since in these cam sites you can interact with the models face to face (private) instead of group chat.
It all depends on what you like.
The models available on the site
There are sites dedicated to European models and others dedicated to American models while others offer a mix of both.
Other sites dedicated to amateur femdom models, other only just transgirls, so it can be very multicolored.
Such sites don’t have any hidden prejudices; they are just attending to a certain niche that happens to have a lot of traffic. You have the choice to find any kind of models you want with a wide selection of cam models from teens, milfs, pornstars, and amateurs to couples, and much more.
Good cam sites usually have so many categories that you run into some you didn’t even expect to find. Go for cam sites with lots of categories such as BDSM, solo action, threesomes, and toy lovers.
Speed is everything
That there are tons of sites to choose from means there is a lot of variety but you are also bound to come across cam sites with inferior setups. You should not have to put up with lagging cams even when slow internet connection is not a plausible excuse anymore.
A cam site with outdated features will only make the whole experience mind-numbing. Also, think about that if the site is mobile optimized or not. It could be really annoying if the cam-site works only in desktop mode on your phone.
What features are on offer?
To enjoy your time on your cam site of choice, you need the features that make it exciting for you. Adult content comes with many selections for your viewing pleasure and the more the features, the better. You will have much more fun if you find a cam site with additional features such as a cam2cam option with audio, offline messages, tips on-site navigation, merchandise, coupons, in-house games as well as lots of extras.
Find a site with suitable charges
The adult industry has gotten people used to freebies and many viewers prefer the free stuff to subscriptions. The
free stuff usually is the top of the iceberg and a way to introduce you to the models. The charges for private sessions might vary between sites but you are better off staying away from the cheap sites. You have to keep in mind that these are professionals out to make a living thus cheap sites are an indicator that the quality is low. Besides, you run the risk of paying for a scam if you only look at the cheap sites.
Think about your own security when looking through cam sites
Some adult sites don’t actually take the necessary steps to ensure your privacy and security are catered for. However, tons of others follow the right protocol. A trusted website should not have any past cases of security breaches (like imlive, or onlyfans hack). Check also that the billing provider is well-known, as this ensures your credentials are safe when paying for services.
The other issue when it comes to security is your anonymity. Always pay attention to the fine print and make sure the terms and conditions of usage are agreeable to you.
It has become some sort of tradition to click on the ‘accept’ box without reading the terms and conditions but that is likely to do you more harm than good in this case.
A good cam site should never reveal your online activity lest they set you up for that infamous bust by your wife or girlfriend.
How is support?
Any reputable site should have a number of channels for customer support. For cam sites, support should include live chat, email, free calls, and email.
