WHAT WOULD MY EXPERIENCE BE AS A FIRST-TIME USER?
I recommend you start off in the free chat area. This way you can get to see and know more about the hosts. Once you find a host you like, you can enter a private show. Each host will let you know their rules, boundaries, and what they are willing to perform during private webcam shows. This way you get a better grasp of your money's worth. Once you join a live private chat, you can either become the director of the show, or just sit back, enjoy, and let the girls do all the work. Once you’re hooked, you can return as many times as you want!
IS MY PRIVACY SECURE ON WEBCAM SITES? WILL I BE RECOGNIZED, OR WILL ANY OF MY DATA BE EXPOSED?
Webcam sites know and understand the meaning of privacy. As such, your privacy is respected to the fullest, as is your sensitive data. If you choose to register to a site, you won’t necessarily be asked to provide payment data or other personal details. To further protect your identity, choose a username that doesn’t disclose your identity. Once you enter and submit your payment method, it is fully protected by the website and its payment processor partners. No matter which payment method you choose, your financial statement will only list the website’s billing partner and not the site itself. In short: your identity and your credit card are never disclosed to anyone.
WHO ARE THE WEBCAM MODELS?
Most webcam models are full-time cam models, working from their own homes from all over the world. Certain sites also co-operate with bigger studios, where many hosts work at the same time from the same location. Regardless of where they operate from, all models receive a dedicated training on webcam work, so you'll never be disappointed - they are professional entertainers.
What features are available on adult webcams?
Large and well-established adult chat communities, such as ImLive, offer an endless variety of live cam features including Cam2Cam, Multi-Viewer, Discount Clubs, Special Shows (and previews of those shows), vibrating toys controlled by the users for more interactivity, zoom, messaging and many others. Smaller sites will only provide you with a few basic features - mostly free chat and private chat, respectively.
What is an adult live webcam site?
An adult webcam site offers you the opportunity to have a direct and live chat with thousands of webcam models of all nationalities, physical attributes, and sexual niches. Most of the hosts are women, but you will also find plenty of men, couples, and transgender models as well.
HOW DO I PAY FOR SHOWS?
There are two main options: pay per minute or purchasing credit packages. Pay-per-minute options don’t have a set limit and you pay for the time your watch, chat, or interact with a model. Credit packages are pre-purchased packages that give you a certain amount of credits (varies by site) to use for chats, shows, and interactions. If you choose a credit package, you will be charged a fixed amount which can be used by the minute on private shows, special scheduled live shows and to watch videos of pre-recorded performances. Most sites offer free group chats which, as the name indicates, are free of charge.
HOW DO I ENTER A CHAT ROOM?
To start chatting, you’d typically need to first register to the site to access most features. The signup process is free, takes about 2 minutes, tops, and usually does not requires you to enter any sensitive. This if you’re only registering and not purchasing credits. Once you've signed up, you select the host you want to chat with (check the price before entering a private chat) and start a Cam2Cam or a text messaging in the host's room.
IS THERE SUCH A THING AS A FREE WEBCAM CHAT?
There is, but it’s more accurate to call it public chat. Hosts are not really performing on it but rather talking to users. Therefore, there’s less of a chance for you to see naked models. Their goal is to wait for a member to take them to a private chat. These public chats allow you to get to know the cam models and evaluate their skills. Only a few websites, MyFreeCams for example, have real live shows for zero cost but even there you will need to pay for private sessions.
DO HOSTS CATER TO SPECIFIC TASTES?
This is the world of possibilities, my friends. Use each site’s filters and search functions to look for hosts’ specific specialties. Regardless of the nature of the show or performance you are looking for, there will be plenty of hosts willing and able to give that to you.
Can you tell me more about special shows and events?
Different sites offer a range of live webcam shows and themed parties. ImLive for example hosts Candy Shows, parties, and weekend events on a regular basis. Camsoda offers Custom Videos of scheduled shows of your choice for a special rate. Look out for these special shows and parties for discounts and a unique experience.
How much should I expect to pay for a webcam show?
Charges for a live webcam shows are by the minute, and the cost depends on your choice of webcam host and differ from site to site. Certain websites have fixed rates models in specific categories, while others let the hosts set their own rates. Average rates run around $1.99-$5.99. Some sites, like ImLive, offer discounted rates or promotion as low as $0.99 for some hosts.
HOW CAN I PAY ON ADULT WEBCAMS?
You can pay by credit card, check, virtual wallets, 3rd party payments services (such as PayPal), or even with one-time money wires. Credit cards and 3rd party services are the most popular option as they tend to be the most convenient, safe, and secure.
WHAT IS CAM2CAM?
Cam2cam is an optional live webcam feature used on almost all cam sites. If you have a web camera, you can use this feature to allow the webcam model to watch you too during her show. This option allows for a deeper, more personal connection.
Is it safe to buy webcam credits?
Yes, the more established, renowned websites pride themselves in providing a very secure connection and process for handling your sensitive data, especially when it comes to credit card details. As for relatively unknown sites that do not offer secure payment, my advice is to stick to other payment services that will alert you to any fraud or malicious intent.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT A SPECIFIC WEBCAM MODEL CHARGES?
In most websites this information will appear once you click on the Private Chat link, and before you start watching.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO ON ADULT CAM SITES, BESIDES WATCHING LIVE SHOWS?
You can browse free photo galleries, free adult videos, chat in forums and message boards, read articles and blogs, etc. At times, users are invited to stream their own webcam and show the other members and hosts who they are.
DO I NEED A LIVE WEB CAM IN ORDER TO JOIN A LIVE CAM CHAT?
No. You can chat live from your PC, laptop, tablet, or phone without the need to turn your camara on. You’d only need a web camera if you want to access the Cam2Cam feature.
CAN I WATCH A LIVE CAM SHOW ON MY MOBILE PHONE?
Of course, you can! Sites are optimized for viewing on various digital platforms including web browsers, cell phones, and tablets.
DO WEBCAM SITES OFFER PROMOTIONS AND DEALS?
Competition has done a lot of good to the adult chat world and users can benefit the most from it. Since websites are trying to attract users, most of them offer promotions or special discount rates for specific hosts, shows, times, etc. Some sites gift you credit for signing up or buying X amount of credits. Keep your eyes open for deals. There are always new promotions offered online.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CREDITS, TOKENS, AND CHIPS?
In short, there is no real difference. They are different names for the same concept: currency you use on adult webcam sites.
HOW CAN I FIND CHEAPER CHATS AND LEARN ABOUT SPECIAL PROMOTIONS?
You have two main option here. The first, is for you to do all the dirty work by visiting all the sites, read all their message boards and online banners looking for promotions, and conduct your own comparison. Or Your second option is to read my free adult webcam reviews and get all the info you need in one click. It’s that simple.
