Number of Web Cam Hosts
Even at off-peak times there are around 1800 online chat rooms, which is very impressive. The site also encourages users to become models, but this calls for a bit of a wild side and “ready to go action”.
I have always appreciated websites that tell you right off the bat how much the video chatting will cost you. BongaCams goes even further by supplying a detailed and accurate price list that any user can go through easily. Prices are more than reasonable and users will get a lot of chatting for the cost of a single cocktail in a bar. Chat per minute is at a fixed price, not a range, so there is no need to ask models about the price or wonder if you remembered to check the price before you invited her to private.
1 token is between € 0.06 - 0.11, depending on the packages you select. Spy chat costs 7 tokens per minute, group chat is 15 tokens per minute and private video chats go for 30 tokens per minute. A full private chat is the highest priced being around 90 tokens per minute. You can tip up to 600 tokens and I am sure those models will show you just how flexible they can be when they are tipped 200 tokens – some actually have a price list on their profile pages with items like ’Flash boobs: 35 tokens. That’s a sweet deal, isn’t it?

The host profile pages on BongaCams can be overwhelming due to the massive amount of infomation, different font types, a pop-up messenger window, different activities where you can join the fun (control vibratoys, roll the dice, spin the wheel, become the model’s DJ by adding YouTube links to her playlist, etc.) Plus since BongaCams is a freemium site, you will run into very explicit activities even as a guest, which can be distracting – from looking at the prices, for example!
What you will find on every model’s page are as follows:
- About the model
- Her likes and dislikes
- Models’ pictures
- Appearance and measurements
- The model’s friends
Getting around BonaCams.com is amazingly easy – just follow the top navigation bars for searching by tags, categories and their online/offline status, plus your own controls: language, history, your profile, signing up and so on.
