Here I am thinking that nothing in life is free and along comes My Free Cams. It's true that you can check out streaming footage of these babes in a public chat just like on most cam sites, but here you can also get nudity at no extra charge. If you find the right babes.
What will blow you away about MyFreeCams is the sheer number of women online at any given time. It seemed way too good to be true for there to be 1,001+ models when I logged on, but that was the case. However, there are some issues when it comes to narrowing down your selection.
While you can filter the cams by location and user rating, you can't sort them by things like age, breast size, hair color, etc. There are tags, but not every model uses them, so expect a lot of page by page browsing. The only filters on the main page are to sort them alphabetically, by region or by popularity. You can change the size of their thumbs and there are other filters much less useful than tags. By default, the most popular rooms show up first.
With that said, you'll find pretty much every type of woman available, so you can imagine how hard it was to finally choose a model to go private with. That's assuming the model wants to go private. Because many people buy tokens and tip peformers in the free room (who occassionally reward that nice behavior with things like titty flashes and masturbation), you will find many models who work exclusively in public rooms. This is great if you have little or no money to spend because if you bounce around long enough you'll see some hot free action, but it's a bummer if you really want to go one-on-one with a hottie.
It will cost you 60 tokens per minute in a private chat with any of the gals. Depending on the token package you buy, you can pay anywhere from $5 to $7 a minute. There are three token packages available, so if you go with the middle one you're looking at $5.45/minute. Your total number of tokens is visible at all times under the cam and it runs down when you're in a private chat.
Although at times the MFC's (how users refer to the site) interface is unwieldy, they are working to constantly improve it. For example, the model tags and explorer functions have greatly improved and now you can actually find cam performers who match a certain look, niche, rating, etc. Unfortunately, the function doesn't allow you to search for more than one tag at a time.
Recently MFC added a suggestion engine. It basically allows you to discover performers similar to one you like. I think this is much better than the idea of pushing fans toward the most popular performers. It levels the playing field for performers and if you're like me and are interested in girls with unconventional looks, it will make finding them much easier.
While the free group shows are what made MFC so popular, what makes the site truly unique is the community behind it. No other cam site allows so much interaction among its members, but also between members and performers. The profiles section will remind you of MySpace and it's a bit much, but users seem to find it fun and the models are very creative on their profiles. You can also cam2cam with other members, send them messages, befriend them, discuss problems with the site or performers in the "lounge," and even get free tokens if you refer your friends.
Group shows will set you back 10 tokens per minute and you can also "spy on" a private chat for 20 tokens per minute. In this voyeur mode, you can watch the action, but you can't direct it. The quality varies depending on the model's webcam and connection speed, so you might need to do some clicking around to find a chick with a decent cam. But I was happy to see that many offer a good-quality cam. Recently they've been adding more HD cams. Depending on the performer, cam2cam and two-way audio is available. You can also adjust the size of the cam, including going full-screen.
One word of warning, though: Since MFC is not geared toward private chat, you might be disappointed if that's what you're into. The performers make a lot of money in public group chats without doing much more than stripping and talking. In fact, some may outright reject your request to go private. Those of you wanting more control should be careful not to be too pushy with the girls, especially the more popular ones. Many are quite the princesses and expect to be treated as such.
The sad thing about this site is that after all these years, MFC still doesn't work on your iPhone or Android. The site loads, but the cams don't stream. Hopefully they have it in the works, because they're way behind the competition in this area.
My Free Cams is a unique site that doesn't require any investment to appreciate it, but to enjoy the full experience I recommend loading at least the minimum amount. It's one thing to watch it all for free, but you get more respect and attention from performers when you tip. MFC is missing a couple of things that other cam sites have, like a thorough search engine, but it compensates with its many community features. The performer selection is impressive and there's always some free action going on.
