MyFreeCams has definitely made a name for itself over the last few years, with its relatively cheap prices and more performers than you can ever choose from, it’s definitely one of the most highly regarded live cam communities at the moment.
If you’re looking for a cam site that’s more amateur orientated, MyFreeCams is your one-stop destination. You won’t find many professional performers on here, almost all of the live streams come from home computers with the models being more of the girl next door type. Which depending on what you like can be a very satisfying and realistic experience and some people may find it easier to chat and get to know the models as they’re very down-to-earth real people with no smoke and mirrors.
The site design itself is very simple and everything is easily accessible from the homepage with the main focus being entirely on the performers and the live streams. They have definitely steered away from more of the bells and whistles of some of the other large cam sites, which seems to work very highly in their favour as the site gets straight to the point with the content and eliminates the need to click around for ages wondering what to look at, as it’s right in front of you most of the time. One of the really cool features of this site is the ability to change homepage to only show content of your liking. This is done by selecting custom options at the bottom of the page, including ethnicity, status, performers you’ve added to your favourites, trending rooms and the newest added performers.
There’s also a mobile version of the site which looks great on any size screen and allows you to check in with your favourite performers wherever you are. Because the great site design viewing it on mobile doesn’t feel like it takes away any of the content that you would see on a full sized laptop.
The chat window is also quite simplistic and easy to use, although from our experience there aren’t many live streams that are in HD, but that doesn’t mean that the videos aren’t in good quality. One of the best design features of this site is the ability to resize the live stream window and chat options to any size you like to suit the size of the screen your viewing on.
Apart from the stream you’ve got all your usual content including model profiles and a whiteboard with all the information you need including activities, token costs and fun and games.
All of the models extra content such as galleries and videos that are available for purchase are linked through a separate domain (share.myfreecams.com), Which hosts all the content in one convenient place and still uses your token balance for any content you wish to buy.
Now time to talk about the features of this site. If you’re looking for hot, crazy new features that you’ve never seen before you may be disappointed. As MyFreeCams has nowhere near the amount of options available to you that you would see on other premium cam sites. But as previously mentioned MyFreeCams is completely focused on getting top quality amateur models, while keeping costs down as low as possible for the consumer.
Having said all that the search options are probably the best we’ve seen out of any cam site. you can search by model tags, topics that the performers have previously mentioned in in their live chats, and the brilliant model Explorer, which allows you to Narrow down the performers to exactly what you’re looking for. Using this system you can search for anything, such as hobbies, food and drink, education level, favourite songs and even right down to the car they drive! This level of detail is probably the best we’ve seen out of any cam site we’ve reviewed.
You also have the awards feature, which has now become a part of almost every cam site out there, where you can see the top performing models ranked and updated in real time.
Most of the performers on the site use controllable vibrators which can be activated by tipping tokens. This is not exactly a standout feature as most models or performers seem to use them these days regardless of what cam site their on. A lot of the models on the site have the option to purchase hardcore videos and galleries which you can download and keep, although you better have a bit of money to spend as these can be quite pricey.

The prices of the site can be very cheap compared to similar sites and it won’t exactly break the bank to participate in live chat or private shows, but as with all adult webcam sites this varies depending on the models you view, as they all set their own prices. The packages you can buy are as follows.
200 Tokens for $19.99
550 Tokens for $49.99
900 Tokens for $74.99
One of the major benefits of purchasing tokens on MyFreeCams is that on your first purchase of any token package you’ll get a free upgrade to a premium membership, giving you access to a lot more content and a much greater experience. Which in our opinion is a pretty good deal, and if you’re in the process of trying out various different cam sites it may be worth grabbing this offer now, as nobody knows how long this is going to last. As we remind everybody who reads our reviews is to be careful when purchasing Credit or Tokens, as what your purchasing may seem like a lot, but in reality you’ll find yourself running out pretty quickly if you don’t keep track of what you’re spending.
So in summing up this site, our opinion is if you’re looking for a cheap cam site with a very friendly community and a very basic design MyFreeCams might be a very good fit for someone who is new to the adult live community and just wants to dip their toe in the water. This is in no way putting the site down as it’s one of the best out there. But if you’re looking for game-changing new features then you may have to head to one of the more premium cam sites. With all that being said if you’re looking for the highest amount of amateur models online at any one time this is definitely the place to be. In our opinion sometimes simpler is better and in this case it definitely works for MyFreeCams.
