The best live cam sites for amateur content

Not all amateur live cam sites were created equal. Some only cater to the male gaze, while others claim to be free and then hit you with enough ads to effectively shut down your system. So before you flee in disappointment (or download a trojan horse), you’ll want to peep our guide for the best amateur cam sites. Below, we’ve listed a few of the top live cam sites that we trust with detailed bios so you can head straight to the type of content you want and ignore the rest. 

What is an amateur live cam?

Unlike porn, amateur live cams aren’t pre-recorded or edited. They stream live and, as the title would suggest, star amateur talent. So you won’t see any big-name porn stars or familiar faces here, which is a large part of the appeal. Live cams also serve as a more interactive form of porn, since you can tip the models to perform your fantasy for you (and anyone else that happens to be in the chat).  

How do live cam sites work?

Adult cam sites connect models (or cam girls) looking to stream a live performance with an audience for a percentage of their earnings. How much of the models’ earnings are forfeited depends on the site but also varies according to viewer count, hours logged online, a person’s popularity on-site, etc.

You’ll notice when joining an adult cam site that one of the first things it’ll ask you is if you’d like to log on as a model or subscriber. Once you’ve selected your reason for signing up, complete the membership application and verify your identity via email, you’ll be able to start streaming.

Most cam sites are free to join but will require users to have some form of the site’s currency–tokens, coins, points (or whatever they may call it) in order to receive private shows, tip performers, access spycams (or view someone else’s private show in ghost mode), or have the model act out your fantasy in a public show. Depending on the site, viewers will either be able to choose a monthly membership plan (which usually offers some form of unlimited access to the site) or purchase coins that can be redeemed for live stream access or put towards tips/gifts. But when it comes to gifting/tipping models, it’s important to keep in mind that the brand still profits off of these exchanges. In other words, the model won’t be receiving your full tip. So if you really want to show your gratitude, you’ll make it a habit of tipping extra after every show.

As for the models, in addition to receiving a percentage of tips, you’ll also cash in on a percentage of the credits used to access your live stream. But it’s imperative that models remember to claim any tips or cash gifts received on their taxes. Otherwise, they’ll risk opening up a can of worm with the IRS. That said, if you’re a model looking to minimize your number of claims, you need to ask to be tipped using gift cards or sign up for a P.O. box and create an Amazon wishlist for viewers to purchase and ship items directly to you (without ever seeing your address).

A sister site to Jasmin, MyCams is also one of the best live dildo cam sites for models and users looking for femme-presenting performers or live sex cams of couples. MyCams.com pays out an average of 60% of a user’s total earnings, which is higher than most other site commissions. Other great perks of using MyCams are its expansive video collection, diverse model selection (despite only showcasing ciswomen on the homepage), and sleek site layout.

3) ImLive

All adult cam sites serve some sort of niche, and ImLive’s is amateur content (more specifically, live ass cams). The site could stand to be a little more diverse, especially since it boasts about hosting hundreds of thousands of models. And it could also use a better way to search through all the content–which there is a lot of. But other than that, it’s a solid choice for those who prefer a more authentic performance–especially since the site’s credit system is one of the easiest ratios to figure out.

New subscribers can join for free and will automatically receive 30 video credits.

Consider this THE site for real cam girls, guys, and their toys. Models set the rates for these shows and expect tips for good service, but you’ll get what you pay for. Chaturbate supports a number of apps that allow models to gamify their experiences–like letting users control their toys by adding random challenges whenever someone tips.

Joining is free but in order to access everything the site has to offer, you’ll need to upgrade to a premium membership.

5) Cams.com

Anyone looking to get their feet wet with dildo cams should know about the top cam site, Cams.com.

Looking to enjoy live amateur cams in HD? Camster has that and dozens of other categories for you to sort content by–all of which you can view for free. The site is definitely geared towards people looking for live cam girls since the only men present on the site are streaming with their girlfriend’s, in the “couples” category. Additionally, Camster also offers users a solid amount of pre-recorded amateur videos for you to purchase and watch, should you decide to take a break from the live stuff. 

Signing up is free and will allow you to join the live chatrooms, but in order to join a private show, tip performers, or have a model generously act out your fantasy, you’ll need some credits.

7) YesCams

YesCams is one of the more underrated amateur sex cam sites. A sister site of Chaturbate, it hosts a large and diverse library of live streams (some of which are available in HD) so no matter what you’re looking for you’re likely to find it on YesCams. The site isn’t as sleek as some of the others on this list, but if you’re willing to look past that (and some offensive language) then this could be the site you’ve been longing for. Despite the inherent disorganization of the site itself, YesCams offers a catalog of apps that all the models on its site use–which makes enjoying dildo cams so much simpler. 

Joining and viewing public shows are free but in order to tip models, receive a private show, access spy cams, etc., you’ll need some tokens.
