Flirt4Free is one of the oldest cam sites in the industry, founded back in 1996. It currently operates out of California and the Czech Republic, and features models of all genders from around the globe.
Unlike most cam sites, the first page doesn’t feature loads of naked images. There are photo stills of the models,
and the top left has a scheduled feature, like a professional model with an upcoming “Hitachi game.” This site has a
tight layout and a clean aesthetic. Every few minutes, the featured models on the top few rows update.
The dropdown menu has very specific and kink-oriented categories to filter by, including dungeon, lactating, shower shows, and domination, to name just a few. At first, it’s hard to spot the buttons to filter by gender, but there are three small selections on the upper right hand side. There are plenty of cisgender camgirls and camboys, but only three transgirl cammers and one transboy cammer.
Flirt4Free has plenty of unique features not offered by most other cam sites. One of these is the Flirt Phone. Users can use their credits to call a model and talk to them live on the phone either during a show or off-hours. There’s also a blog with interviews from top models, giving users an inside peek into the models’ lives.
The searching filters on Flirt4Free are clearly designed with kinksters in mind: things like roleplay, daddies, and self-sucking had multiple models available. But perhaps the most enticing feature of Flirt4Free is their interactive mode, indicated by different-colored banners. These banners show that the models use interactive vibrators that can be controlled in different ways:
On top of these unique features, Flirt4Free also has more traditional chat offerings:
|Standard:||a private video chat between one user and one model|
|Premiere:||a private video chat with a top-quality model and high-resolution camera|
|Voyeur:||the option to watch in on standard and premiere chats. In this mode, both receiving and giving audio and written chat has been disabled.|
|Multi-user:||a small video chat with several users and one model.|
|Combo:||a blend between multi-user and private, this is a more intimate chat where users can hop in on a private chat and participate.|
|Feature Shows:||a show with professional stars at a discounted rate.|
|Group:||a show that a performer schedules for a set length of time, and raises a certain amount of money for before beginning.|
|Party:||a group video chat with no cost per minute; instead the model works for tips.|
All of these shows offer Cam2Cam experience except for Voyeur, Features, Group Chat, and Party.
Finally, Flirt4Free also offers VIP status, which gives users access to free feature shows, recorded videos, photo galleries, and other perks. Cam models can also provide members with a fan club that gives viewers secret access to video diaries, 5% discounts on all shows with the model, and private treatment just for them.
Non-registered users and those who’ve never made a purchase only get limited time in the group chats, to give them a
feel for Flirt4Free before buying credits. Users are allowed to return every twenty-four hours for the same amount
of free time.
Flirt4Free’s pricing system is far from transparent, which is frustrating. Any time an unregistered user tries to learn more about the pricing system, VIP membership, or anything involving the perks of registration, they get redirected to a page asking for their email and information. However, a little digging on user forums revealed that the cost is about ten credits for $1.
Shows are priced by the minute, and rates are set by the model:
|Standard:||thirty to sixty credits per minute (or ~$3–$6)|
|Premiere:||seventy to five hundred credits per minute (or ~$7–$50)|
|Voyeur:||ten to forty credits per minute (or ~$1–$4)|
|Multi-user:||ten to 120 credits per minute (or ~$1–$12)|
|Combo:||sixty to 120 credits per minute (or ~$6–$12)|
|Feature:||thirty credits per minute (or ~$3)/free for VIPs|
VIP status is $39.95 per month.
The cutting edge offerings like interactive play with models and phone chat makes Flirt4Free stand out from the pack. With just a QR code and a few clicks (and some money), viewers can be pleasuring the cutie behind the screen right before their eyes.
Features like diverse subcategories and fetish and kink filters also make this site stand out for people who need certain, more specific fantasies fulfilled.
Flirt4Free takes 77% of a cam model’s earnings, meaning most of users’ hard-earned money is lining company pockets, not thanking the models for their performance. This poor cut of earnings probably is why there were so few models online at any given time; there weren’t more than a hundred camgirls or camboys online, and only less than five trans cammers total.
Although Flirt4Free may have a smaller model base, they certainly have a lot of unique options at their disposal. This can make it worth paying models a little extra so they get a fair cut. Good pay means retaining happy models longer – and happy models means they’re more enthusiastic to do the things that drive their viewers wild.
If models were paid better, Flirt4Free would easily get 5 out of 5 stars – but until they change that policy, they’re stuck at a solid 3.5.
