Everything You Should Know Before Choosing a Cam Website

Watching porn is great, and nobody in their right mind would argue. But for all the solo fun and games that can be had with a mainstream porn site, the whole thing sometimes feels a little hollow.

That is understandable, given how what you’re watching wasn’t made with you in mind and isn’t what you would call particularly engaging.

By contrast, give live webcam sex services a shot, and it’s a whole different ball game (no pun intended). Live cam sites are about as far removed from one-way porn as it gets. You’re looking at the closest possible approximation to real-life sex, albeit in a purely ‘virtual’ context. 

Rather than simply watching the action, you’re part of the action. You can do what you want, request, and ask to see pretty much anything you want. All of this adds to an experience that cannot be compared to mainstream porn. 

All is well and good, but what about setting yourself up with a good webcam site in the first place? Assuming you’d prefer to keep your activities discreet and avoid being scammed, what should you be looking for in a safe and reliable sex cam service?

1.    Positive Reviews

First, the quickest and easiest way to gauge a cam website’s credibility (or otherwise) is to check out a selection of online reviews. Where a camming site has a predominantly positive reputation and has earned the recommendation of real users, it’s probably a safe bet.

If what you come across paints a picture of a somewhat shady enterprise, that’s probably what you’re looking at. A quick scout for reviews and recommendations online could tell you all you need to know about the site you’re looking at. 

2.    First Impressions

When checking out a live cam website for the first time, your first impressions of how it is put together can be quite telling. For example, if it all looks professional, and you are immediately impressed with what you see, you’re golden.

By contrast, if it all looks far too amateurish to be taken seriously, you may be better off your business elsewhere. 

Go with your gut, and avoid signing up with any substandard cam websites. 

3.    Clear and Concise Terms and Conditions

Remember that the moment you sign up, you become legally bound by the site’s published terms and conditions. In this case, it simply makes sense to ensure you know exactly what you are signing up for.

It may not be the most enjoyable or exciting part of the process, but consulting a site’s T&Cs before signing up is essential. If there is anything ambiguous or untoward in the document, proceed with caution. The moment you sign up, you’ll be duty bound to abide by all published T&Cs, so you need to know what they are.

4.    A Fair and Transparent Pricing Policy

The same can also be said for a webcam site’s pricing policy, which may differ significantly from one service to the next. Some sites are free to sign up with, and you then pay to participate in what’s on offer.

Some offer tiered subscription services, others impose signup fees, and then some charge you nothing but encourage users to tip the models they interact with generously.

Either way, you need to know what kind of fee structure you’re looking at before opening your account and getting started.

5.    Total Commitment to Safety and Security

It should be clear from the get-go that the site in question is completely committed to customer safety and security. Given the nature of what takes place via sites like these, the last thing you want is to face the prospect of a security breach.

Again, this is where reading a site’s T&Cs and privacy policy comes into play. Unless you are completely confident in the safety and security of the services on offer, you could be taking a risk by signing up.

6.   Plenty of Variety to Keep Things Interesting

Lastly, one of the biggest benefits of cam websites is the way they give you limitless freedom to explore your sexuality. Not to mention pushing the boundaries of what you thought you were into or even capable of.

As you progress, you’ll instinctively find yourself craving new and interesting experiences, which should be readily available. The greater the variety of ‘services’ on offer to keep you interested, the better.
