The Adult Cams Guide

Looking to indulge in a little chaturbate? In case you hadn’t figured, that’s the act of ‘masturbating while chatting online’…

Here are some of the best adult camming sites.


Chaturbate live camming website

Before we take a look at the best sites like Chaturbate, we should explain why this behemoth is seen as the King of live adult cam sites.

(You can read our full Chaturbate review here.)

This is not an empire built on sand.

It’s an empire built on lots and lots of live performers, across just about every niche, with a huge number of free shows available.

Chaturbate doesn’t work like most adult cam sites. Instead of paying for private shows with cash, this site operates a tipping policy whereby most of the action can be seen for free. Standard practice is to tip ‘tokens’, which the performer can then trade for cash.

If you have any private requests, or there is something you want to see a performer do, you can tip tokens in exchange for the live show. It’s common for models to set ‘tipping targets’ and wait for enough users to contribute before putting on the promised show…

What sort of people broadcast live cam shows on Chaturbate?

Well, that’s one of the great benefits of this site. You’ll find girls, guys and transgender models who are not ‘professional’ models. They are putting on amateur shows that feel distinctly more authentic than some of the other cam sites that rely strictly on porn stars and escorts.

Chaturbate houses college girls, bored housewives, horny couples and – yes – a large number of escorts and porn stars. Whatever you’re looking for, there’s a good chance you’ll find it using this site: one of the true giants of the adult cams industry.

Here’s quick links to get started watching live adult shows on Chaturbate:

Interesting in making some money as a Chaturbate model?

You can always sign up as a broadcaster and earn a nice chunk of cash for tantalising the Internet crowds.

Pretty easy money if that’s your kind of thing.

Flirt4Free live cams

Flirt4Free is a popular rival to Chaturbate that hit the news a couple of years ago when one user spent an incredible $57,000 in the space of one weekend on private shows and extravagant tips.

The identify of the mystery viewer has never been revealed, but no doubt the ladies on Flirt4Free live in hope that he’ll one day return to the site!

The site functions much like Chaturbate with free shows available for general viewing, backed up by a raft of premium features that cost credits to access.

Some of their popular features include:

  • One-on-one live video chat
  • Voyeur mode for watching other private shows (without interaction or audio)
  • Multi-user group shows where the cost is split by several other paying viewers
  • Party chat — free to watch but ‘tipping’ the model will encourage her to live up to the ‘no holds barred’ billing…

The site isn’t as simple to use as Chaturbate, or as large, but it has some excellent performers who will pull out all the stops to get you tipping.

When you sign up, you’ll receive 120 free credits to spend on live shows, one-to-one video chat, or in ‘voyeur’ mode.

Live Jasmine

Live Jasmin vs Chaturbate

The famous red spread of Live Jasmin will be familiar to anybody who has ventured on to RedTube, PornHub or YouPorn.

This site is aggressively promoted across all of the major porn tubes. If you are used to shutting the window and carrying on with your videos, then now’s a good time to give Live Jasmin a second chance.

This is another gigantic adult cam site. It is divided in to a number of categories: girls, lesbians, mature women, couples, gay, and transgender. Each category has its own sub-category based on the performers that are receiving the most interest.

For example, in the girls category, you can explore live performances tagged to young 18 year olds, ‘big tits’, Latin women, stockings, Asian girls, blondes, petite and more.

Whatever your taste, LiveJasmin has you covered.

Unlike Chaturbate, this site operates on a fixed paid credits system for private shows and special requests. Credit packages start at around $45.

Some users are not fond of paying upfront for exclusivity, but others enjoy the intimacy of private one-to-one shows. Not to mention, Live Jasmin has some of the best streaming tech on the market so you will feel like you’ve been teleported straight in to your performer’s bedroom. It uses high quality HD streams.

Expect over 1000 models streaming live adult shows on Live Jasmine at any given time. These women are illustrated beautifully by showcase images rather than screen-grabs of their shows, thus helping you to navigate quickly between shows that match your tastes.

As a result, the site looks much more professional than Chaturbate. Then again, some people dig that ‘amateur’ quality.

My Free Cams

MyFreeCams vs Chaturbate

My Free Cams (MFC) is probably the closest alternative to Chaturbate, and it is legendary for the amount of action you can find on their platform absolutely free.

MFC was launched back in 2004 and judging by the interface, not much has changed since then. It grew rapidly over the years and was described by XBIZ in 2010 as one of the world’s largest adult webcam communities.

Just how large?

Well, back then it was said that had over 100,000 models and 5 million active members. Why so many models? You’re probably wondering how MFC would attract so many models if it was operating a free model, but the way the site works is that users would get together and tip their favorite performers to put on a certain type of show — usually involving toys, masturbation, stripteasing, or sometimes even full sex.

The huge audience led to some cam models earning as much as $75,000 in a single month.

These numbers should make you think twice about dismissing that ugly 2004-esque interface…

The driving force behind the success of My Free Cams over the years is the willingness of its performers to give away a little, or a lot, for free.

You can buy credits and enjoy private shows with your favorite performers if you wish.

Unless a performer is in a private show, she/he will likely appear in one of the main lobby areas that is open to all members.

Performers have learnt that they don’t need to do private shows on MFC to make money. They can simply set a ‘tipping target’ and allow the crowd to chip in, penny by penny, until the target is reached. At that point… it’s show time.

This business model closely resembles the Chaturbate token tipping system, and it allows for a lot of free shows that will blow your mind if you are not familiar with adult cam shows.

It’s not uncommon to be flicking through chat windows on MFC only to stumble in to a college girl fucking her friend, in real-time, because she’s just reached her tipping target. Or to walk in to a solo display of masturbation, or a strip show, or a tour de force in toy-play.

Seriously… the toys. There are so many toys on this site. You could be transfixed for days if watching amateurs attack dildos and vibrators is your thing.

If you want to enjoy intimate private shows, the paid credits are more than reasonable in price. Packages start at just $19.99 with a token costing around $0.08-$0.10.

Just like Chaturbate, MyFreeCams relies on the goodwill and friendliness of the community to tip for shows that they like. You can lurk and troll if you wish, but you’ll likely end up blocked pretty fast.

IMLive vs Chaturbate

IMLive was founded back in 2002 and has gone on to become one of the largest adult webcam communities on the web.

It has over 35 million members, and 80,000 ‘hosts’, which is the IMLive term for a model/performer. This site has scooped a number of awards over the years, including the prestigious AVN Best Live Chat Website in 2011 and 2012.

Similarly to Chaturbate, IMLive has its own currency that is used across the site. Users can pay for IMLive credits which can be exchanged for private shows, or tipped for those performers you’d like to give a little extra appreciation in public.

The hosts on IMLive are a mix of models both professional and amateur. You can find live sex cams for females, males, couples and shemales. IMLive is known for its partnership with several famous porn stars, such as Lexi Belle, Joanna Angel, Sunny Leone, and Tori Black amongst others.

Of course, if you want to indulge in a private show with these famous names, you can expect to pay a handsome rate. Each host gets to set her rate of IMLive credits per minute: normally between 1 to 6.

The better or more popular the model, the higher you can expect that credits per minute rate to be.

1 credit = $1.

So, a ten minute session with one of the top models on the platform might cost you $60, which is the equivalent of an hour-long masturbation frenzy with one of IMLive’s lowest charging performers. Your mileage may vary!

One thing that sets IMLive apart from Chaturbate is a unique feature known as Happy Hour, where users can receive a discounted show that is non-exclusive — but which lets them take charge of the chat for a set period of time and play the role of director.

Users take it in turns to play director, using credits to pay for their time slot, whilst other users can watch but cannot type — unless they choose to ‘wait-in-line’ for the same privilege.

Another interesting addition to this cams site is the Live Experts section. IMLive is not just for erotic shows, sex chat and masturbation. It also has categories for Mysticism & Spirituality, Health, Diet & Fitness and Business & Finance.

Hell, if you are interested in falling in love via webcam, there’s even a section for friendship and romance. A bit masochistic, but hey… we’re probably not the target audience…

IMLive has some neat features, but if you are the kind of guy (or girl) who likes to cruise various streams and browse before you buy, it’s not the best platform for free shows.

Bonga Cams

Bonga Cams vs Chaturbate

BongaCams is one of the top European adult cam networks, and boldly calls itself the ‘nastiest adult webcam community in the world’.

This site is popular with European amateur performers, and has a large and growing European base of members.

The homepage is your typical adult portal mix of selected VIP profiles, and performers in the middle of trending shows. You can find categories for just about every taste down the left sidebar, including pregnant models, Asian, ebony, housewives, pornstars, teens, group sex and even the smoking fetish.

Bonga is popular in the camming community for its penchant of a good contest. Each week the top 100 models on the site receive a prize based on member satisfaction and tokens collected. The top performer takes a $1000 bounty, with further cash prizes available for the runners up. This gives each model good reason to go above and beyond in giving you a show to remember.

Or, at least, those performers who think they have a chance of topping the charts…

It’s a pretty large community after all.

At any given time, you can expect to browse between 500-1000 live shows. These come with a free chat, or the premium options to go private, ‘full private’ or VIP.

There is also the option to enter Spy mode, which explains why one chat isn’t as private as fully private. In non-fully-private, other members can spy on an encounter for the cost of 7 tokens per minute.

If that sounds a bit cheeky, it should come as no surprise that the spy mode on BongaCams is one of its most popular features. It gives members the opportunity to watch a model getting down and dirty without paying for the privilege of the director’s seat.

Any user who wants private to mean private can go for the full private chat option, which costs slightly more. Ahh, the tax of exclusivity.

You can sign up today and get 5 free tokens.

Not that 5 tokens will go very far. Here are the current rates:

  • 13 Tokens for €1.99 (~0.15 per token)
  • 38 Tokens for €4.99 (~0.13 per token)
  • 78 Tokens for €9.99 (~0.13 per token)
  • 231 Tokens for €24.99 (~0.11 per token)
  • 492 Tokens for €49.99 (~0.10 per token)
  • 630 Tokens for €65.00 (~0.10 per token)
  • 740 Tokens for €74.99 (~0.10 per token)
  • 5080 Tokens for €500.00 (~0.10 per token)
  • 10000 Tokens for €990.00 (~0.10 per token)

Remember, that’s in Euros, not USD. The currencies are pretty close together these days anyway. US customers should add around 10% for the correct USD amount.

Sakura Live

SakuraLive vs Chaturbate

If there’s one niche that isn’t really covered by the sites we’ve looked at so far, it’s the market for Japanese cam girls.

Japanese cam girls just aren’t really a thing on Chaturbate, or the sites like it.

Well, if your fantasy is to watch sexy young Japanese chicks masturbate and follow your commands, then there’s an excellent site that allows just this: Sakura Live.

This live cam site is the web’s top community for uncensored Japanese video chat and is tailored towards the English-speaking market. It has over 21,000 registered performers and the unique ability to remotely operate toys.

“You control her camera, toy and body,” the site promises.

It’s clearly targeted at men who have a nagging preference for Japanese girls.

“Hot, sexy, nude, submissive Japanese women are waiting for you…”

“See how submissive Japanese girls really are….”

Sign up and you’ll be able to browse anywhere from 75-250 live performers at any given time. Many of these girls are actually based in Japan, so it’s worth noting the time difference and that some of the best performers might not be willing to stream during your typical viewing hours.

Not all of the girls speak English; in fact many of them don’t.

So, how do you actually communicate and express what you want if it’s a Japanese cam girl and she can’t speak or read English?

The site gets around this by allowing you to select icons that correspond to actions and body parts. These are understandable to both performer and member, regardless of any language barrier.

Some of these features are a little quirky, such as the ability to lick or kiss through clicking different buttons. It’s very… well, Japanese.

But that’s probably why you’re browsing the hundreds of cute young submissive girls on Sakura Live in the first place…

If you don’t want to use the graphical communication tools, you can go cam-to-cam or start an audio show. Private cam shows rely on a crediting system, usually starting at around $2 per ‘SakuraLive point’. The real cost of shows is typically anywhere between $3 to $6 per minute, with most around the $4/minute mark.

Sakura Live isn’t a like-for-like Chaturbate alternative, but it’s a must-visit for anybody who likes Japanese cams and wants to find a lot of them in one place.

Or is Chaturbate still your favorite destination for live adult cams?

  1. You can’t beat Chaturbate. That place is a god damn time suck.

    Do remember the good old days of MFC. I can see how the girls would have been minting $XXXX/month easily back in its heyday. Still alright but it’s full of amateurs expecting to get rich quick from rubbing their tits these days.

    Wish I had a pair!!

    • “Still alright but it’s full of amateurs expecting to get rich quick from rubbing their tits these days.”

      Not a bad business plan, tbf.
