Even with the rise of VR porn and the seemingly endless sea of sites built for watching HD porn, adult cam sites are still your best option for streaming live porn.
What is an adult cam site?
Unlike porn sites, 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 the site, etc.
How do adult cam sites work?
When you sign up for an adult cam site, 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 joining, complete the membership application, and verify your identity via email, you’ll be able to start streaming.
Depending on the site, viewers will either be able to choose a monthly membership plan or purchase coins or tokens that can be redeemed for live stream access. Subscribers will notice that they have the option to “gift” or “tip” the models an amount of their choice, but keep in mind that the brand does profit 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 after every show (and maybe even on days you’re just feeling nice).
And as for the models, in addition to receiving a percentage of tips, they’ll also cash-in on a percentage of the credits used to access their 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).

Best adult cam sites for streaming porn
Before we detail a list of adult cam sites that come well-reviewed by users, it’s worth noting that the popularity of each of the sites mentioned below can differ from zip code to zip code.
Considered to be one of the top sites for live cam shows and one of the best sites for models–paying out around 50% of their earned revenue, with “Popular Models” taking home an even larger percentage. The site hosts a diverse model base, exclusive HD videos, a dating site, and even offers registered viewers access to some free videos (just remember to tip!).
Joining is free, but if you’d like to access the entire site you’ll need some tokens.
LiveJasmin (or Jasmin) has a reputation as one of the top live sex cam sites in the community. It’s incredibly diverse and features a wide variety of cam categories, as well as live chat rooms for users to browse.
New members can join for free and will automatically receive $9.99 in video credits as well as 50% off their first credits purchase. After that, you can purchase more credits or individual videos for anywhere between $0.98 to $9.99+ (depending on the content). Additionally, models receive anywhere from 30 to 60% of total earnings, and the minimum payout from the site is $100.
One of the best live sex cam sites for models, MyCams.com pays 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 models, and clean-cut site.
New subscribers can join for free and will automatically receive $9.99 in video credits. After that, you can purchase more credits or individual videos for anywhere between $0.98 to $9.99+ (depending on the content).
All sex cam sites serve some sort of niche, and ImLive’s is amateur content. The site could stand to be a little more diverse, especially since it boasts about hosting hundreds of thousands of models. 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.
For sheer variety, Cams is one of the best sites available on the market. It has a massive number of models of all shapes, sizes, and identities. Users can browse models across a wide range of categories, from gender to age, to hair color and body type, this site will even sort by ethnic groups. Cams find a model that matches your specific desires easy, with free video chat available to you can see them before you start paying. Each model sets their own per-minute rate for their room, and some types of shows have a minimum amount of time you must purchase. However, there’s so much variety you’ll always find something you want.
Cams hosts a few different types of shows. You have your traditional free live shows, paid private rooms, and one-on-one shows. “Buzzmode” is a group show where models play with sex toys that buzz whenever someone tips. TextMe lets users text one-on-one with models when they’re offline, including pictures. Finally, Connexion shows let you connect your favorite sex toy to your computer. Otherwise known as “teledildonics,” this allows the model to take control of your toy for an interactive experience.
New members can join and browse for free, and similar to other cam sites prices per show vary by performer.
The sister site of Jasmin, LivePrivates is listed as one of the best free cam sites among the camming community. Reviewers boast about LivePrivates’ reliability, range of active users, advanced search features, and cheap membership options. It’s also worth mentioning that this site takes advantage of streamlining its videos with niche tags which makes browsing for specific types of content and navigating the site a pleasurable experience.
Joining the site is free and all new viewers automatically receive 10 minutes in free credits!
iCams is one of the smaller sex cam sites with only a few thousand models online, but that shouldn’t affect your experience. If you like having a range of body types and other physical attributes to choose from, this isn’t the site for you–especially when it comes to the “curvy” section since most of the models are actually thin. But outside of that, iCams has done a nice job at aggregating a diverse performer base with models of all different backgrounds, ages, and styles to support. The site also offers free online instant messaging and a majority of HD videos but there are a few models who stream in standard definition for those of you looking for an amateur aesthetic.
Consider this THE site for real cam girls. 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 Chaturbate premium membership.
Easily one of the most popular adult cam sites, ManyVids hosts some of the most diverse videos and cam girls. It also pays out pretty well, with models (or MV Stars) getting anywhere from 60% to 80% of the cut, depending on the sale–60% for videos, 80% for custom vids, tips, and MV Crush. In addition to webcam streams, ManyVids also offers premium members access to exclusive videos, contests, and daily magazines.
10) xHamster Live
Although it doesn’t have the brand recognition that Pornhub or YouPorn does, xHamster is quickly becoming one of the most popular sites for free amateur porn and live couple cams. Reason being, besides the site’s large and diverse library of live streams, xHamster has been known to get political–in both positive and literal aspects. Aside from casting models who have an uncanny resemblance to political figures, xHamster has also fought for all-inclusive sex education by placing location-based sex ed statistics on site as ads–so you can feel confident supporting this site.
xHamster is free to join and stream, but in order to tip your performers, you’ll need some coins. Additionally, the site also offers a Premium subscription for those looking to get a little more out of their membership. xHamster’s Gold Membership unlocks unlimited downloads (in any format), exclusive content, no ads, full-length premium movies and adult DVDs, full HD and 4k quality, as well as access to over 280 partnered brands.
StripChat.com sets itself apart from other cam sites by offering videos designed for a VR experience. The site also allows you to search by the nitty-gritty details (tattoos, hair color, toys, token price, etc).
Joining is free but to access everything the site has to offer, you’ll need a premium membership. For a limited time, new subscribers automatically unlock 50 free tokens!
A top adult cam site for free public shows, the XCams site is super user-friendly and (unlike any other site) has multilingual models who can whisper sexy nothings across the screen in English, Spanish, German, Italian and Dutch.
The site is free to join and so are the public live chat rooms. But if you want a private show, phone sex, or any number of the other premium features you’ll have to pay up–no worries, though. All new registrants will receive 25 credits just for signing up!
Bonga Cams is a private chat-focused cam site that is best if you prefer to search by category. Categories range from Porn Star to Smoking, so believe that no matter what, your (legal) fetish will be accounted for. While free chat is available in some rooms, most models will not start explicit shows until you’re in a private chat.
There are a few downsides to Bonga Cams: the number of models, the cost, and popups. The site has an aggressive number of popups, begging you every few minutes to sign in or sign up if you’re not a member. Again, users looking for women-identifying performers won’t have a problem, but the site’s other sections are significantly lacking.
Founded in 2002, MyFreeCams is one of the oldest live cam sites around. They have thousands of models around the world, so no matter what time of day you log on someone will be working. Name recognition has helped the company, leading to a steady stream of new talent alongside experienced veterans.
In addition to free shows, the site offers Private, Spy, Group, and “True Private” shows, each for a different number of tokens per minute. True Private shows are the only way to get one-on-one with a model. The rest offer different room sizes and levels of interaction. Models can also sell packages of pictures and videos in their rooms for tokens.
