Everywhere I look I'm being told that soda isn't good for me. That may be true, but there is no denying that Cam Soda is very good for my body and my mind. I've spent a bit of time browsing this free cam site and now I'm going to tell you all about it.
The first thing that probably struck you was the word "free." Well, I call CamSoda a free site because although you can purchase tokens, tip the girls and pay for private chats, you can also not purchase any tokens and still see lots of hot and nasty chicks naked and playing.
But first you'll have to create an account. While some free sites let you browse without one (even most paying cam sites do as well), that's not an option here. The moment you click on anything you get a "register" pop-up. It's free, though, and you don’t even have to provide a credit card.
After that you can go ahead and look around. The site has a pretty typical live cam interface and I had no issues with navigation, but an advanced search would've been nice. I checked out all the preview images and keep scrolling down the page to see all the performers who were currently online, which varied quite a bit depending on when I was there. I visited once and there were only 20 online cams and other times there were over 150 (thankfully, it seemed like it was closer to the higher end more often than not).
If you hover over a preview image you'll get a look at the chick's live cam at that moment. A click of the mouse takes you to her room and you can also chat with her and read her profile if she has one. I noticed that there seems to be a lot more Latinas than any other type of girl. The site doesn't advertise this, so maybe it just happened to be the case the few times I visited – not that I'm at all complaining.
If you want to go for a private chat, most of the chicks I tried that with were asking 30 tokens/minute. With each token costing about 10 cents, it came to $3/minute, which isn't bad. Although I did see some performers asking as much as 120 tokens/minute, which at $12/minute is ridiculous! But you're always told what the price is before you enter a room, so you can decide if you want to pay it or not.
When it came to the public rooms, I noticed that most of the time the babes are working for tips, so the more people give, the more the girls do and they're also trying to elicit tips by showing themselves off, which means that even if you don't have any tokens you still get to enjoy the public show.
Although without any tokens you can't make requests, you can't tip to activate the vibrator in the girl's pussy (which a lot of performers use), and you can't play any of the games they offer. It becomes much more of a voyeur thing, but you do get to see everything. And it generally looks good.
None of the cams are marked as HD, so I won't call them that and the cam quality can be a little hit or miss. Although generally I found they were more hits (meaning they looked good) than misses (meaning they looked poor) and there was always fluid motion, which is very important for me when it comes to live cams. The quality was just as good when I checked out the site on my phone. The mobile experience was fluid with quality cams and an easy to understand user interface.
I say this a lot with live cam sites, but I have to say it again for Cam Soda: There is no reason not to check it out. Once you create an account, it's free to browse and free to watch all of the naughty nudity you can find (and finding it sure isn't hard to do).
