Pros and Cons
- huge online community
- loads of performers
- requires little to no investment
- limited search features
- not geared toward private chat
Here I am thinking that nothing in life is free and then 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 see the girls nude at no extra cost. And, yes, it's as awesome as it sounds!
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 1,400+ performers when I logged in, but that was the case. However, it isn't all great, as 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 performer uses them, so expect a lot of page by page browsing. The only filters on the main page are sorting them alphabetically, by region or by popularity. You can change the size of their thumbnails and there are some other filters. 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 performer to go private with. That's assuming the person wants to go private. Due to many users buying tokens and tipping the performers in the free room (who occasionally reward that nice behavior with things like titty flashes and masturbation), you'll find many performers who work exclusively in public rooms. In fact, some may outright reject your request to go private.
This is a bummer if you really want to go one-on-one with a hottie, but otherwise it's great, because you can go from cam to cam and are very likely to see lots of nudity and naughtiness. To give you an example, among the last 10 girls I previewed, seven of them were at least partially naked, four of them were masturbating and one room had two chicks fingering themselves at the same time. And they now have a feature that allows you to preview a live view of their cam without having to click into the room (just hover over the little camera icon in the corner).
It will cost you 60 tokens per minute in a private chat with any of the girls. Depending on the token package you buy, you can pay anywhere from $5 to $7 per minute. There are multiple token packages available, so if you go with the middle-range one you're looking at $5.45/minute. Your total number of tokens is visible at all times under the cam and it counts down when you're in a private chat, which is a very nice feature.
Although at times MFC's (how users refer to the site) interface is unwieldy, they're working to constantly improve it. For example, the 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 more than one tag at a time.
MFC also has a suggestion engine that 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 them 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. Not only do they allow for so much interaction among 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 performers 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 performer'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 performers have a good-quality cam and recently they've been adding more HD ones. Depending on the performer, cam2cam and two-way audio is available. You can also adjust the size of the cam, including going full-screen.
The site is mobile-responsive, which is great, and they've improved the design and added some really nice features. My favorite design element is the hamburger menu you'll find on each performer's preview image. Tapping on it slides out a menu with links to the chick's profile and to "enter her room." But you'll also find tags, other models you may like and a live view of her cam room, which is very cool and unlike anything I've seen on a live cam site's mobile version.
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 more thorough advanced search engine, but it compensates with its many community features. The performer selection is impressive and there's always some free action going on.
