Cams.com is a highly successful website run by Streamray. Streamray are responsible for some of the web’s largest dating and adult cam sites, they also hold some of the most valuable domains.
Streamrays portfolio of websites include dating sites adultfriendfinder & ALT.com, BDSM.com, Bondage.com, Passion.com and Penthouse.com a valuable collection of sites no doubt.
Cams.com was registered back in 1996 and has had a pretty varied history, initially a tech site for webcams and then a search engine it found it’s current form in 2003. Since then it’s grown substantially, with a hardcore following of regular followers.
When you first visit cams.com you will notice that the layout looks nice and familiar. The live girls are displayed on the homepage as a real time profile image. Clicking the image will take you through to the free live chat or if the chat host has gone offline you will go through to the hosts profile page.
Tell me about the content and chat hosts
The site is an international site, attempting to cater to all walks of life. You can select to sort your selection by region, for example North America/UK/Australia, Europe, Russia, South America, Asia and the Middle East or Africa. You can also sort by 6 popular languages however these are European. Sorry no Japanese, Mandarin or Chinese yet.
The quality of the video on Cams.com is exceptional, particularly when you are watching HD live streams I couldn’t fault it. The video size can be increased right up to full screen and this is really impressive. There is a great selection of chat hosts, most of them really sexy with great bodies. most on cam either in underwear or some wearing outfits.
As a guest you can view the live cams for free and you can also chat however after about a minute you will be prompt to register. It is possible to return to the homepage click another live host and get more free chat time but after the second or third time doing this you will release you might as well just register.
What does registering involve?
Registering is actually fairly easy and you won’t need a credit card to become a member. Registering is a 3 step process. First choose a screen name and enter your email address. you need to provide a valid email address because your password will be mailed there. Enter your password on the next screen and you are verified. At this point you will be prompted to add funds to your account. Whilst you don’t need to just yet it makes sense to rather than waiting until later.
Some cam sites use credits, some tokens and some gold. Cams.com makes things simple by just using currency, dollars in this case. You can add funds to your account in the following denominations: $10, $25, $40, $50, $80 or $100. It really depends how much you want to spend initially, most will go for either $10 or $25 and then top-up further as required.
What types of chat are there?
The main type of chat room you will encounter is group chat. Group chat allows you to watch the chat host for free until someone else takes her into private. In group chat the host chooses a topic, for example TammyLuvU’s topic was “I love oil all over my body” (see below).
In free chat the host tries to get the viewers to tip money up to the target amount. The tip costs $9.90 for a 10 minute show as opposed to $3+ per minute in private. The host might need 20 people to reach her chosen amount. Once the target amount is reached the chat host performs her live show. If the chat host doesn’t reach her target amount she stays in private and any tipped money is refunded.
If whilst attempting to reach the group topic objective you decide you want to take her private you can, noone will be able to see or hear you conversations except the chat host. You can also turn on your cam at this point too. Also, if you want to get naked with the chat host you can. This is activly encoureged.
If the chat host goes private you are given the option of watching in voyeur view. You won’t be able to talk directly to the girl but you will get to see her live show, the good thing about voyeur view is that it’s cheap. The bad thing is that you really want to be able to communicate or else you might as well just watch a porno film.
Getting around cams.com is easy and finding your kind of host in made simple by the filter selection down the left hand screen. Using this you can filter by age, whether you want couples, threesomes or MILFS. You can filter by body type BBW, curvy, petite etc You can filter by Ethnicity, fetishes, hair color etc. It really is very useful. You can see at a glance before entering a chat room the nationality of the host (portrayed by a flag), her age, cam feature (HD or audio). If you pay to watch a group show you can freely browse other areas of the site whilst you wait for the room to fill up, once the show starts you will be alerted by a small popup, this is a nice feature.
Despite my previous reservations I found I really enjoyed the time I spent on cams.com. The girls I encountered were very friendly and unlike on some cam sites seemed to be more real and natural. You know, like proper college girls at home rather than professional cam girls in a studio somewhere. I half expected their dad to walk in at any moment on a few cams.
The quality of the video is excellent and the number of cam girls available is always high. If you are looking for guys or something different, you might want to try another cam site as this one does not even have relevant categories.
Sign up for free, pay $10 watch a group show, it’s all good!
