All you need to know about webcam sites
Who is the GOP?
Great question, thanks for asking. I am the GOP, and I am the foremost authority on all things porn. With decades in the industry under my belt, I have taken my own affinity to this popular pastime and turned it into a well-known guide to anyone looking to discover what live cams are all about, by writing professional reviews and articles about everything from fetishes, to payment methods, to types of models. When you read my blogs, you can be sure you are getting the most correct, timely information around, and information on fun promos and perks for those wanting to explore the sites that I spotlight.
Who are the Cam Girls?
While not only ladies, the majority of live cam models are women, from the ages of 18 to 99, looking to show you their bodies, talents, skills, and hospitality, for a fee of course. Some sites are more expensive than others (more on that below), but the ladies can be stellar no matter the price of admission to their cam rooms. They come from all walks of life, all professions, all body types and kink types, and they usually show up with an HD camera and lots of toys, costumes, wigs, accessories, and sometimes just their naked bodies and nothing else. To get a more inside look at this fascinating phenomenon of cam girls that has become even more popular in the last couple of years, read this fantastic Wiki page.
The Live Cam Industry
Speaking of the last two years, live porn has truly expanded and exploded all over the world, to a point where it is getting hard sifting through them all, especially if you are looking for particular inclinations, specific models, or special show types and prices. This fascinating article detailing the life and work of webcam workers really knows how to paint the picture and invites you in for an intimate look at this lifestyle: “Estimates put the total value of the global porn business at around $5 billion. And camming makes up a fifth of that revenue”. The piece also details all the great advantages to this unique work from home opportunity, as the model can completely control every part of her live cam performance. Some sites even allow the ladies to choose what members who subscribe to them get, how they interact in their chats, and of course what she is, and is not comfortable doing in her shows.
How to become a Cam Girl?
This BBC News article is a mesmerizing look into the fastest growing part of the porn industry, live porn cams. In particular, it focuses on a young woman working for one of the world’s largest, most successful live cam sites – LiveJasmin, which appears on many of my blogs. It is a great premium site that is all the rage with users looking for a more exclusive, luxurious experience. The performer describes joining a studio, which is the most common of ways for a model to start, rather than on her own. By joining such a studio, you are not your own boss perhaps, but there is an element of protection and comradery with other models that is lacking when you work alone. The work seems easy, just turn on your camera and get naked, but the model interviewed disagrees: "It's about selling your brain, not your body," she says. "I see it like a performance, like a show." True enough, what you really get paid for as a cam girl is for putting on the best show possible, which also relates to the categories you have associated with your account. Whether it be just general chats, particular fetishes (Feet/BDSM/Watersports/Girlfriend Experience), or simply enjoying the exhibitionism of it all – These ladies know their craft well, and often relish in their thoughtful performances.
Freemium Vs. Premium
These are the two main types of sites available on live cams. The first is a platform offering full nudity and sex in the open rooms, so you can spend hours on them and see mind-boggling action, without needing to spend a dime. Though personally, I always recommend tipping the girls to support them. The premium sites rarely offer real skin in the public rooms, as you mostly get models that are there to chat with you, so you can get to know them before entering into a privates session.
While, in general, premium sites are more expensive, it really depends on the site, as on some freemium sites the models get to decide how much they charge not just per minute, but for the added joy of cam2cam. Some even charge separately per feature, which makes things more expensive. Also, some freemium sites have all-inclusive blanket prices, which tend to be very costly, as all models are paid the same amount.
Therefore, you need a site that will easily guide you to the cheapest live cams around, just like mine.
The Best Live Cam Sites
After all this information about live cams, the models and prices and shows, you may be asking yourself, so which site should I try out? The answer is different depending on a user’s wants. Some prefer the freemium communities and the free open rooms, while others like to spend some change on super professional ladies. Some viewers like having a great mobile platform with c2c, while others prefer unique fun features to enrich their webcamming time. Instead of asking about the best site, it is better to make a comparison between all the best sites, freemium and premium, and then decide based on your own preferences.
CamSoda is, by far, the best freemium site around, especially if you like a good bargain and lots of free content. The site works really well on mobile with all the same features that are available on desktop, including cam2cam. The galleries are live, giving you up-to-the-second glimpses into what is happening in each room, so you do not have to go back and forth looking for it. Some models are as low as $0.50/min and c2c is included across the board. Even better, a recording of your private sexy session is completely free. Models have their own tip menus, which will be displayed for you when you enter the chat room, so you can opt for some cam action as you show your appreciation with tipping. If you behave, you could win Most Liked User, voted for by the models, and score 1000 tokens to blow on your next happy ending on the site.
LiveJasmin is the world's top premium cam site, hosting only vetted and trained models using HD webcams, and featuring highly responsive 24/7 live customer support. The bold red layout and gorgeous model galleries ooze luxury and class, and any open cam room will quickly reveal why these gals are among the best in this business. Some models will be your girl for as little as $1.00/min. Pop into your lucky lady's cam room to see what rate she is charging for private chat. Remember, cam2cam and 2-way audio will cost an extra $1.00-$2.00/min each, whether you are using your computer or mobile. It is always a good idea to keep an eye on Promotions for any specials that might be on offer and Spin the Wheel for a chance to win up to 99% off your next purchase of site credits. LiveJasmin also offers 24/7 live customer care, fun features like Mobile Live and Story, the first enabling you to chat with your honey on her device, and the second shows uploaded content, just like Instagram.
Flirt4Free is one of my favorite premium live cam sites, thanks to their unique chat options, like 2-Way Interactive chat, as well as their dedicated Fetish Community. This site also has one of the best VIP Memberships for $34.95/month which includes 200 daily videos and free credits every month that cover around a third of the membership's cost. Check out the Profiles section for hotties in categories like Top 20 Models and Hall Of Fame, and the Calendar, which can inform you what shows you can expect to enjoy according to your time zone. The webcam rooms stream in 720p HD with c2c freely included in private chats, which start at $0.45/min. The HD icon to the top right of the site lets you turn this on and off. You can sort cams by price and show type to find whatever suits your mood and pocket. New sign-ups get 120 free credits to spend.
At ImLive you can find pro performers to welcome you “home” and forget your troubles. The free video chat rooms on this premium site are the non-nudity way to find your ideal match before the cam2cam session. ImLive's mobile site is excellent and offers cam2cam in private chat at no extra cost. This is one of the oldest live cam sites, and boasts a worldwide following of millions, as well as pornstars making guest appearances on the beloved platform. ImLive also offers an exclusive feature called Fulfill Your Fantasy, a space to post exactly what you are looking for and get the ladies bidding to make it come to life. Cam2cam private chat starts as low as $1.00/min, making ImLive one of the cheapest premium sites around. You can also opt for pre-paid sessions, which allow you to buy blocks of time with your best gal at a discount, instead of paying by the minute.
The X in this site's name must come from all the x-rated action you can get here for decent prices. This is a premium site, so the only free skin you will see is on Topless Mondays — live cams full of bouncing bosoms, almost all in HD. And, if you subscribe to the email newsletter, you get a free VIP video of your choice. XLoveCam's rates start at $1.10/min, with cam2cam included on both desktop and mobile, which firmly places this site as one of the best mobile c2c sites in the business. Use the Rates category to sort models by their prices. This is a great site for those looking for exotic babes, speaking multiple languages and displaying a variety of accents. Most models are European, so for those who love a crooning French maid or a dominating German fraulein, this is the place for you.

Live Cams FAQs
• What is the most famous webcam site?
That depends on who you ask, as there are sites that are more popular in certain parts of the world. However, two sites I recommend as the most “famous” are ImLive and LiveJasmin, the first has been around for over two decades, and the second has even found its way into pop culture and pop songs. Both sites are premium, but ImLive has some of the cheapest sites around, while LiveJasmin is pricier. On the freemium side of things, you can find CamSoda, which is very well-known and celebrated for its low prices and free content.
• What is the cheapest webcam platform?
A problematic question, as this is relative. The all-around cheapest has to be ImLive, as it offers premium cams for less than $1.00/min. However, sites like Flirt4Free offer rooms for as little as $0.45/min, but these rooms are few and far between. You should also consider which site offers ways to cut costs, like CamSoda offering bonus tokens to those purchasing a tokens package for the first time.
• How do I choose between the cheap webcams?
Simple, you find the best site for you by checking out my blogs that cover not only the cheapest cam sites, but those with the best VIP memberships, loyalty programs, promos, free credits/tokens, and those providing multiple show types to suit every wallet.
• Can I try out a chat with webcam models for free?
Many live cam sites offer short trials in the form of free credits/tokens. ImLive, for example, offers 50 free credits (worth $50) with your first purchase. LiveJasmin offers you up to double your purchase when taking part in its promotion for first times members, and Flirt4Free also offers 120 free credits when you verify a credit card.
• What is a "Tip Menu"?
While sitting and watching hot models is fun, it is best when you have some degree of control over their pleasure, which is what these menus are for. Usually located on the far left or right of their chat boxes, you will find Lovense menus, which is the most popular sex toy among performers on live cams. It will show you how many credits/tokens are needed to make the toy buzz, and your lady groan in pleasure. The menus will also include how much tipping you need to do for different types of sex acts, such as getting naked, masturbation, anal, and lots of other fun activities the model would happily show you for the right price.
I have written a lot about the kinds of cams there are, the models, prices per show, and the differences between the cam sites. While there are indeed plenty of them, only one site can get the crown, and that platform is CamSoda. Boasting HD cams up to 1080p, free rooms with plenty of sex and nudity, free content offered in the form of free show recordings, and Exclusive Videos the site itself produces, as well as super low prices — this is the site to beat as the best to either try out live cams, or switch up your live cam routine. You would be surprised at how professional the models are, despite their amateur titles, and how mind blowing a private session can be when you have found that perfect webcam partner.
