MyFreeCams is one of the most active and popular cam sites on the internet today. As of August 2019, the site has been in use for 17 years, making it the longest-running cam site around.
With such a long life span, naturally MyFreeCams has built up quite the userbase over the years. There are over 200,000 models and 20,000,000 registered users on the site. At any one time there are around 1400 active models online.
But has MyFreeCams held its own against other popular sites like Chaturbate and LiveJasmine? Let’s look at the site in a little more detail.
Let’s not beat around the bush here. The layout of the MyFreeCams homepage is pretty ugly.
Instead of the real-time previews of live cams, the thumbnails on the front page are just profile pictures of models. Disappointing to say the least, but luckily, it doesn’t have to be this way. The homepage is actually customizable so you can change it to live previews, but it’s an unnecessary hassle to say the least.
You’ll quickly notice that MyFreeCams is a haven of women. There are almost zero guys (both gay and straight) on the entire site, so it’s perfect for anyone who hates coming across a rogue dick when searching for hot women.
Aside from a few design issues, MyFreeCams comes across as quite positive once you get the hang of things.
As the name suggests, MyFreeCams offers more free chats than the average cam site. Even as an unregistered user, you can still browse thousands of live cams for as long as you like without having to pay a dime. Chats are usually a mix of teasing videos and shows which you can gift the models with tips to get a little dirty. It’s not uncommon to see models getting quite explicit, even in the free rooms, so you’ll never be left short-changed.
Not all chats are completely free though. You’ll need tokens to use the premium features, of which there are several available.
Group shows let viewers pitch in a small amount each for a session. It needs a minimum of three members but audience numbers can reach into the thousands. When this is case, it only takes a very small amount per person for a very engaging performance.
Private Chat is a standard one-to-one session with a model, but it can be spied on by other viewers for a small fee. Cam2Cam is available inside private sessions, along with interactive sex toys (used by around 30% of girls on the site).
TruePrivate Chat costs slightly more than a standard Private Chat, but the session is restricted to only you and her. Other members can’t peek in on your chat. There’s also Vouyer Chat, where you can peek into other people’s private sessions. You’ll only see the model’s cam in these types of chats, you won’t see the other guy if they’re doing cam2cam.
The prices for these features are all fixed cost. Unlike some sites, they’re not left up to the model’s discretion. Therefore, you’ll know exactly how much you’ll need to shell out beforehand. However, in free cam chats, you’re free to tip the model as you see fit, so acts can be considerably different depending on the girls’ willingness.
There are two memberships available at MyFreeCams, Basic and Premium.
Basic is the standard membership you’ll receive after signing up, which includes free chats and private messaging. Premium membership here works a little differently to other sites though. You will be awarded Premium status for life once you purchase your first tokens. There’s no monthly fee after that either. The only cost will be token purchases. Premium membership includes a reward program which offers additional tokens the more you use the site.
And the fixed prices for premium features are:
|Private Chat||60 Tokens per minute ($5.46 per minute)|
|TruePrivate Chat||80 Tokens per minute ($7.28 per minute)|
|Group Show||10 Tokens per minute ($0.91 per minute)|
|Spy / Vouyer Chat||20 Tokens per minute (£1.82 per minute)|
If you’re a straight guy, you’ll find yourself in heaven on MyFreeCams. The place is a paradise of women, ranging from young models to hungry cougars right up to professional porn stars. If coming across a stray cock when you’re scrolling through cammers kills your mood, then MyFreeCams’ lack of guys, trans and couples will see you right.
The sheer amount of models on the site is nothing short of overwhelming. It’s active performers list far exceeds LiveJasmine, Chaturbate or any other high profile cam site. Because of this, the site a constant hive of activity, meaning most live cams already have a significant number of people watching. This translates really well to Group Shows, meaning it’s possible to hit performers biggest milestones with ease (squirting, cum shows, anal play, etc).
For a site of such magnitude, the cost of tokens also works out really well. It’s one of the cheapest out there, especially in regards to Group Shows.
I’m not exactly sure why MyFreeCams has stuck with its outdated design for so long. I’m surprised that with a site that looks this bad, it’s managed to attract such an incredible number of users. Aside from the busy layout, there are very few downsides to MyFreeCams.
The search function is a little bit disjointed, but this is quite common with every cam site. Models tag themselves rather than being assigned tags by a site moderator, so it’s not uncommon to find BDSM hashtags on vanilla girls or MILF tags on a 21-year-old. It can get a little frustrating digging through search results to find an appropriate model, but that’s my only gripe.
What MyFreeCams lacks in design aesthetics, it makes up for in every other area possible. It’s a utopia of the hottest girls on the planet and there’s hardly a cock in sight. Basic membership alone will be enough to get most people by, and the premium features are cheap, interactive and fun. The tip shows alone are worth the Premium membership, and you’ll find that even 200 tokens will last you a while.
With an updated layout, MyFreeCams would score perfect marks, but the hassle of customizing the layout to something usable makes it fall short. Overall, I’d give the site 4.5 out of 5.0.
