Here are the 5 top free webcam chat sites on the Internet
I don’t know how many adult webcam sites are on the Internet, but there are a lot. Some are okay. Most are a waste of your time. But a select few are actually very good. Out of curiosity, I invested a few hours of my life searching around the Internet to find the very best free webcam chat websites. I do these things for you.
Anyway, here are the best of the best. More information below on how I arrived at these findings. Enjoy…
Anyone familiar with the world of webcam chat sites shouldn’t be surprised that Jasmin comes in at number one on this chart. The site hosts live cam feeds of pretty much all the top webcam performers, gets more visits than most other cam sites combined, and has a simple and sleek user interface. You can literally begin chatting with Jasmin girls after 2 mouse clicks. Or 2 tablet taps. Or whatever you use.
In terms of the performers, I also believe that Jasmin probably has one of the largest selections around. Regardless of what kind of webcam girl chat/video experience you’re in the market for, Jasmin will probably have you covered. Everything from the basic straight girls to couples to matures to gay and transexual. Whatever you’re filthy, kinky heart desires.
Like most webcam chat sites, you can absolutely chat with all of the models for free. And also like most webcam chat sites, if you want to see the really good stuff you have to pay. While registering as a member on Jasmin is free, the models obviously pay attention to the people who are willing to pay for private chats. Because money.
Still, you can have a pretty good time on Jasmin without having to spend anything. Once registered as a user, simply find a model you like and chat away. For their part, the models are friendly, fun, and looking to have a good time. And, yes, talk you into buying a private chat. But you can always say “no” and still engage in sometime exciting conversation.
And sometimes they show you their boobs!
(Full disclosure: I have an affiliate account with Jasmin and can possibly make some money if you join their site after clicking on a link from my site. That being said, this really didn’t affect my decision on rankings. But wanted to be up front about things because we’re friends and all.)
Without question, Streamate is easily one of the best and most popular free webcam chat sites in the world. It has a huge user base, lots of really high-quality performers, and a solid user interface. At any given time, there are usually over 1,000 models online and ready to chat. The site also offers a good variety of types of performers, including solo girls, couples, fetish, and gay and transexual.
Obviously, the big attraction for most people to sites like Streamate is the opportunity to live chat with extremely attractive people. And then see them naked and shoving things into their holes. And on Streamate, you can chat with all of the models for free. For the “good stuff”, however, you gotta be willing to take your wallet out and spend some cash.
That being said, Streamate does offer an option called “Gifting Gold” that is sort of a hybrid between a free chat session and a private show. Much like you can tip a dollar or two to a stripper at a club for a quick lap dance, Streamate gives you the ability to “gift” real money to performers during free chat sessions.
As you can imagine, the models are going to give more attention to the people throwing dollars at them, so this can be cheap way to get some more action without the full blown price of a private show.
While not as sleek as Jasmin or Steamate, ImLive is pretty clearly one of the better free webcam chat sites on the Internet. It’s not the biggest (or best) of the industry, but it still manages to deliver a fairly solid and hassle free user experience. The models are mostly high-quality performers and the site does have a decent selection in terms of variety (solo, couples, gay, groups, etc).
ImLive also makes it pretty easy to get a feel for the webcam model before you actually click into their feed. A quick intro, user rating, and a rundown of any picture galleries and awards the model has received is also available up front. This makes it easier to compare the cam performers using an apples to apples approach.
Like all of the sites listed in this list, ImLive does offer free webcam chats with their performers/models. It goes without saying (I hope) that for anyone to see any real “dirty” stuff, a private show is the only way to go. Models simply aren’t going to waste their time with giving a premium quality performance to a bunch of random cheapskates.
The biggest downside for ImLive – and the thing that keeps it out of the Top 2 spots – is the fact that it’s a smaller site and has a lot less performers than either Streamate or Jasmin. Granted, quantity is not at all representative of quality, but it is something to consider.
Much like ImLive, MyFreeCams is not in the same league as either Streamate or Jasmin. It’s a smaller site with fewer models and the interface and technology simply isn’t as advanced as the “Big 2” free webcam chat sites. However, the overall quality of MyFreeCams is pretty decent when compared with most other webcam sites.
A nice feature of MyFreeCams is that it probably allows you to more quickly browse a larger selection of webcam models than most of its peers. And that includes any of the other sites included on this list. You can very quickly scroll through a pretty impressive number of models, all of whom are available for free webcam chat sessions.
So why is MyFreeCams ranked only at number 4 on this list? For a few reasons. For one, in my opinion at least, the performers on this site aren’t as high of a caliber as on the three sites above it. Not saying MyFreeCams is full of a bunch of hideous trolls, far from it, but my experience was that the models on Jasmin, Streamate, and ImLive were more polished and engaging.
And it’s also worth pointing out that MyFreeCams kind of has a “cheap” feel to much of site. I understand that in the land of free webcam chat sites that the look and feel of the website itself isn’t the primary attraction, but it does directly influence the experience.
That being said, I will absolutely agree that MyFreeCams is easily better in almost every way than probably 95% of the webcam sites on the Internet.
One of the better known free adult webcam chat sites out there, Chaturbate has quite a bit going for it. The site itself is fairly well designed, it features a very decent selection of webcam models and performers, and offers a nice variety of niches including solo, couples, gay, and transexual.
The models on Chaturbate also more routinely perform hardcore acts for free than those on any of the other sites on this list. Registration to the site is free and members can join free chats with any of the models. Additionally, Chaturbate members have the ability to “tip” performers during these free webcam chats, allowing members to encourage lude behavior while not having to spend the coin needed for a full-blown private show.
Now let me explain why I ranked Chaturbate at the bottom of this list. While the site does manage to hold its own in terms of design with even the likes of Jasmin and Streamate, it is also full of really low-quality performers. Additionally, the site is full of pretty ugly banner ads. So if you aren’t careful, you could end up clicking on something and being taken to a whole other site. All in all, Chaturbate just comes across as a bit too out of control to rank any higher on this list. At least in my opinion.
Obviously, though, there are MANY far worse things you can do than spend time on Chaturbate. In comparison to the thousands of other free webcam chat sites on the Interwebs, Charturbate is still very much one of the best around. Ranking in the Top 5 – even at number five – should be a badge of honor.
How did I compile this list?
As I mentioned above, in order to figure out which five sites would make the cut into the Top 5, I had to literally browse through dozens of webcam sites. In judging the sites, I was taking the following things into consideration…
- Does the site offer free webcam chats?
- What kind of talent does the site offer in terms of its webcam models?
- How many cam performers are active on the site?
- Is the site easy to use and navigate?
- Do you have to fight through huge numbers of ads just to find the webcam feeds?
- How does the overall site look?
I didn’t use any kind of score card or anything like that when compiling the rankings, but the five sites listed above pretty quickly rose to the top. Because there is a LOT of shitty webcam sites out there. Some of them probably even get a lot of traffic, but I’m sure the people who are clicking on those sites regret it in fairly short order.
I can honestly tell you that the five sites listed above (Jasmin, Streamate, ImLive, MyFreeCams, and Chaturbate) are easily in the top 1% of all webcam sites in existence and that you could spend time on any or all of them and really not have a bad experience.
What do you think?
Obviously, what I think doesn’t matter at all when it comes down to it. I encourage all of you to go out there and see if you agree with the rankings and websites that I’ve listed above. I’m also open to the possibility that some/all of you may 100% disagree with each and every one of the free webcam chat sites that I’ve listed above.
