Bonga or BC

What Bonga mean?
Bonga is referring to Bonga cams, which is a freemium adult website based in the Netherlands.


New website in the cam industry with a lot of free stuff.


c2c meaning: Cam-to-cam. Online interaction where both users (the model, and the visitor) are turning their own webcam on, and being visible to each other.


This is a short version of Clip for Sale website.

C4S is a US-based adult video content selling site. It is full of downloadable homemade adult clips made by mostly amateurs. Webcam girls usually upload their content here, and you can purchase them.


It is a currency, used on (shortly livejas). You can buy credits, if you make an account, and set up a payment option. (For example Paypal)
You can use your LiveJasmin credits for several things, for instance, buying tickets to VIP shows, take models to the private chat, buy content, unlock features, and so on.

Country Ban

Models can restrict their video streams to the countries that they want.
The country ban means that they can hide from their relatives, friends, or family if they don’t want to let them know, what they are doing.

Freemium live sex sites

Freemium refers to the webcam site’s business model. On freemium live cam sites, you do not have to pay a dime to watch valuable content (like nudity, and other actions). Sometimes you do not need to register either to the website at all, but if you wish to interact with the models, ofc you have to make an account and purchase some tokens. Such sites for example Chaturbate (review here) or MFC.

Free chat

Free chat means, you can chat and interact with the models in the model’s room as a guest, or non-paying member for free. The drawback is that you won’t be easily recognizable by the model since sometimes there are dozens of visitors who write to the wall at the same time. On a few cam sites, there is a time limit before they force you to register.
Therefore always a smart idea to register at least a free account if the given websites allow it.
For example on livejas, you can register such an account for free.
Keep in mind, on paying websites you will not see any nude content on free chat. On freemium websites you can see actions in “free chat” as a guest too.


It is a currency used mostly on Streamate and its white-label sites. As a registered member, you can purchase Gold on the website, which you can use for different things like tipping the model, buy extras, or purchase tickets to Gold Shows.1 Gold means 1 unit of your currency. Ex : 1 gold = 1USD

Gold Show

Typically this type of group chat exists on Streamate and its whitelabels. The model can set the length of her/his show and a minimum buy-in price/user.

What is the gold show on Streamate

The model has to reach her/his goal before the countdown ends. If the timer ends, the model can decide if she/he starts or cancel the show, depend on that if she/he reached the goal of money.
If she declines the show, you will get your money back.

The same type of group chat exists on Livejasmin as well, it is called the VIP show.

Group Chat

Live cam group chat means that when more than one paying member participating in a paying show. Usually, these sex shows are much cheaper than the regular private shows (Private Chat)since more people pay for the same thing. Group chat has different names on different cam sites. (For example VIP show, Party Chat, Nude chat)


Website: MyDirty hobby


Whats MFC stand for? It means MyFreeCams – which is a freemium live cam site.

Paying live cam sites

Webcam sites where you have to pay to watch any sexual content and interact with the models.
Examples: Liveprivates or Imlive (review)

Private Chat

Private chat (or Private shows) means that when you take the model to a personal session.
Guests, or other visitors’ of the site unable to see her/his room, of course, they cannot see you either.
Your conversation will be private, and you can also share your camera with the model, for the bigger joy, it is called c2c.
Every biggest cam site are offering this option under different names, but keep in mind some of the sites offer Voyeur mode, or Sneak Peek, that allow visitors to look into your private session, therefore always read the given cam site’s FAQ.

Sex cams are a type of live porn show that features amateurs (usually from home) and porn stars from big studios on webcam in real-time.
If you visit one of the thousand sex cam sites, you can interact with these models via chat or, and you can ask them to use certain remote controlled sex toys and more.
Sexcam models get paid via tips (which can be under different names such: gold, token, credit) when users bring them into private sex shows.

The Pink Toy

You can see many live cam models who use a pink toy that reacts to the tip’s sound. The bigger tip, the bigger sound, and the bigger buzz. This tool called OhMiBod, the toy’s manufacturer is lovense.

  • Ohmibod torture = when a group of members tipping the chosen model simultaneously that, very fast and insistently. This can cause :
  • Ohmibod squirt = “Female ejaculation refers to the expulsion of fluid from a female’s urethra during orgasm or sexual arousal”

Webcam Studios

Some of the models work because they enjoy it, but most of them take it as a normal job.
They are professional therefore this job needs a lot of effort, intrepidity, and equipment as well. They can choose to work from home, using their own computer and environment, or they can work from a studio.
Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Cam studios allow models to rent professionally furnished small rooms outside of their homes. These businesses can supply models with pro cameras, video equipment, high-end Internet, professional lighting, and other services like hairdressers, makeup artists, masseurs, language teachers, and so on.

Models do not have to pay to join Studios, but they are also not guaranteed a fixed salary. However, the studio keeps a percentage of the model’s salary. The percentage fixed on their contract, but usually, they keep 50% (based on the country, and the Studio’s quality)

Streamate or SM

Live video chat site, this is the website’s name.


The currency’s name on different webcam sites like Chaturbate. You can buy goodies with this, or you can use it as a Tip. Similar to credit or gold.


You can give small or big rewards to the models that you like. Every bigger cam site has the function to give certain amounts to the broadcasters. (Livejasmin = Surprise, Chaturbate = Tip)
On some websites when you give tip it triggers a different sound on the model side (the bigger tip, the bigger sound) that reacts to the model’s sound-controlled toy. (usually, the pink one which called: OhMiBod)


Livejas is the most known, and most popular adult cam (based on Alexa rankings) website’s name in short. The site has been established in 2001 in Hungary, and this one is the oldest webcam site that we know.

We have to mention that, they have an outstanding and trustworthy support team if you get stuck in something.

Other short names that you may want to know: Bonga = Bongacams, CM4 = Cam4, Ctb or CB = Chaturbate, RLC = Reallifecam

Voyeur View

You can peep on other user’s private chat for a certain time, based on the website’s rules.
You have to pay it less than a regular private chat, but you cannot interact with the model.
The same terms are Sneak peek and Spy Mode.

VIP Show

It is the same as Group Chat.

Whitelabel sites

Big cam sites usually have partner programs as well. Under their programs usually, they have Cam Whitelabel or Cam builder options. This means that, if you register for the program you can have your own cam site.
They bring the models, organize the payments, and every background stuff. Your job is only to buy a domain make your Whitelabel unique looking, and advertise it as you can. Of course, you can keep part of the revenue.
