The Top 10 Adult Webcam Sites for 2020
When it comes to the best sex cam sites, there is some debate. Some users prefer a tip based free chat experience, while others want to cam2cam in a private show. Out of the thousands of adult cam sites that exist, there are only 20 or so which we at BestWebcamSites deemed worthy of a review. Looking at all the available features, these are the top 10 cam sites for 2020. Each will appeal to a different type of user. Find out which one suites you.
CamSoda is our favorite tip based cam site. That's because while CamSoda is freemium, a lot of effort has been added to appeal to users who prefer private shows. You will find that the models on the site charge lower prices than average and that you can even get a free recording of the shows you pay for in some of the rooms. South American cam girls make up the majority of the site, with a small collection of shemales.
Registration on CamSoda is free, and you will be thankful for that as there is a 10 minute chat limit for unregistered users. Once you register you will be able to chat in some of the rooms, but will continue to be muted in others until you go ahead and purchase tokens. Some rooms mute you until you tip, but we usually just skip those. Once you have tokens you can tip in the open rooms for requests, goals, or to purchase media.
The cheapest private shows start at $0.48 a minute, but there is no sort by price function. The average price is closer to $2.00 a minute. When looking for a cam girl to take into a private show, pay close attention to what is included in the notification window. Show recordings are automatically added to your collection, but for cam2cam you will need to click the button to turn it on. You can cam2cam on your phone at no additional cost.
CamSoda gives new users 200 free tokens with their first purchase. You will occasionally see tokens packages which are half off, which is the sites way of rewarding your loyalty.

LiveJasmin is the king of premium sex cam sites. Browsing through the pages of available cam models is like flicking through the pages of a magazine. There is an assortment of webcam models from all around the globe, with options for cam girls, cam studs, and trannies. LiveJasmin is orientated around paid private shows. You find a cam girl you like and get to direct the show.
Once you arrive on LiveJasmin, you can watch the cam rooms for 10 minutes before the site forces you to register. You can actually chat before completing your registration, but if you want the models to give you any attention we highly recommend completing your registration first. The free cam rooms are great for chatting, getting to know the models better, and finding out what they are willing to perform in private shows.
Private shows on LiveJasmin have an average cost $2.20 a minute. The price is not inclusive of cam2cam or 2 way audio, both of which cost extra. Each will cost you an additional $1.10 a minute, with some girls charging more and some nothing at all. Turning on your microphone and camera are both available on mobile devices as well.
LiveJasmin is constantly running promotions for new users. Right now, you can verify your credit card to get 9.99 free credits. You can claim up to 100% bonus credits on your first purchase by spinning the wheel of fortune.

Flirt4Free is a clean and easy to use cam site with an amazing paid VIP program. It is the only site where paying to be a VIP will give you free credits and discounts towards the credits you purchase. VIPs also get free show recordings, VODs and more. The site has a very international assortment of models. You have a great selection in the female and male categories, but the transgender category is quite a bit smaller. Most models prefer the paid show types.
You can register on Flirt4Free for free, which will give you the option to actually chat in the rooms. You will find that some girls will continue to mute you until you actually have credits, but most do not have any chat restrictions. There is very limited nudity in the free chat rooms. If that is what you are looking for, your best bet is in the Party Shows.
Flirt4Free has two different paid show types. Multi-user shows and Private shows. Multi-user shows start for $0.50 a minute and are inclusive of cam2cam for the first user to start the show, but other users can join in and distract the model. Private shows are between just you and the model of your choice, cam2cam is included and others can't interrupt. Privates are more expensive, costing $2.00 a minute and above.
As a new user, you can verify your credit card to receive 120 free credits on Flirt4Free. Purchasing a credits package will award you with even more free credits. A rewards program will automatically collect points on your behalf, and you can trade the points in for bonuses and extras.

In the long run, ImLive is the cheapest premium sex cam site online. The VIP loyalty tiers may take a long time to climb, but at the top level you get 25% bonus credits on every purchase, free show recordings, discounts, and more. Even the lowest loyalty tier lets you book shows of 30 minutes and above to get significant discounts, making it a favorite of users who enjoy longer date sessions. The site has models from everywhere. Private shows are where you can see them naked.
There is no time limit restriction on how long you can sit around in the rooms on ImLive, but unless you complete the free registration, you won't actually be able to interact with anyone. Once your account has been created, you will be able to chat in all the rooms and even submit your fantasies before you've bought any credits.
Private shows on ImLive average between $2.00 and $2.50 a minute, inclusive of cam2cam and 2 way audio. If you are lucky, you will be able to find coupon codes to your favorite cam girls. These codes can be used to knock off a substantial sum off the total, but the cam girls only usually share them with their favorite customers. At present, c2c and 2 way audio are only available while on a computer.
New users get 30 free credits with their first purchase on ImLive. That will give you a head-start with climbing up the loyalty tiers.

Stripchat is a tip based cam site that was designed to look like a premium site. The layout is clean, but the action you can watch in the chat rooms definitely isn't. Stripchat has a huge selection of webcam models, with little country flags to indicate exactly where each cam model is from. Many users tip in the open rooms for requests and towards goals. The private show experience is pretty good too, and usually isn't too expensive.
As an unregistered user on Stripchat, you can stay and watch for as long as you want, but you will be muted in 99% of the rooms. Once you register, you will find that you are able to talk in the majority of the rooms, unless a model has muted all free users. Buying tokens gives you unlimited chatting capabilities, unless you are personally muted for being a dick.
Since the free rooms on Stripchat can get very busy, switching to a paid show type can be your best bet for intimacy. You will need to choose between a Private Show or a Cam2Cam Show. Other users can spy on Private Shows, but not cam2cam shows. Furthermore, you can turn on your webcam in Cam2Cam Shows. Some girls charge the same price for both, while others charge extra. Show rooms start at $0.80 a minute.
Stripchat doesn't reward you with a sign up bonus. Instead, there is an hourly raffle where 5 lucky users will win 50 tokens each. There is no limit to how many times you can win.

Streamate is a pay as you go cam site. You leave your payment method on file and pay only for what you spend. There are, of course, spending limits in place and everything is clearly labelled, so you won't find yourself accidentally bankrupting yourself on a drunken spree. Streamate has webcam models from all across the globe. Most cam girls will strip for tips in the open rooms, but there is a clear focus on private shows.
To register on Streamate, you have to input the details of your payment method. The registration itself is free, but until you create your account, there isn't really much you can do other than sit around and watch. Once your account has been created, you will find that the models are as engaging as they are beautiful.
Going Private on Streamate offers you two options. Either the usual Private, which other users can spy on or the Exclusive Private, which blocks off would be voyeurs. Cam2cam can be included in either show type, but it depends on the model. Some girls won't watch you no matter how much you are spending. The site has really random pricing, with numbers like $2.77 a minute.
Streamate has a cumulative rewards program. You climb up the ranks according the the total number of days on which you've had a private show. The top level gives you 10% of the credits you've spent as bonus credits to use again.

xLoveCam is Europe's solution to cheap sex cam. The maximum price the models can charge for a private show is below the minimum of some other sites. You will find a plethora of spoken languages, with some of the cam girls being fluent in 5 or more languages. The site is mostly premium based, though the girls do strip for tips and requests.
xLoveCam lets all users chat, regardless of whether you have completed the registration yet or not. After a few minutes, you will be forced to log in if you want to continue. The free rooms contain limited free nudity. If you are looking for a free show, visit the site on a Monday to enjoy the ongoing topless promotion.
xLoveCam doesn't have the cheapest cam rooms, but the average price is far lower than elsewhere. While the low price is under €1,60, the high price is just over €2,20. The cheapest and most expensive models charge very similar prices. Cam2cam is included for free in all private shows, even on mobile devices.
The best package and payment method will depend on your location. Users are offered different benefits depending on where in the world they are located.

When it comes to interactive sex cams, few sites can compete with the Connexion featured on Cams.com. If you own a Lovense Max, you can easily hook it up to a model's Lovense Nora. Yours and the model's toy will interact with each other, sending the sensations across to the other device. Cams.com is traditionally a private orientated site, though you can and will find some free nudity.
Your options on Cams.com as a free unregistered user are very slim. You can check out the various free chat rooms, but you won't be able to interact in them in any way. Furthermore, after a few minutes the screen becomes blocked, forcing you to register to continue. Registration enables you sit around for as long as you want and to chat in all rooms.
Private shows are quite expensive, costing an average of $3.00 a minute, which is not inclusive of cam2cam. Cam2cam costs extra, as does using the Connexion feature. You can join individual model fan clubs to get discounts of up to 70% off with your favorite girls. There are also Nude rooms, which are basically just giant group shows.
New users on Cams.com will receive 100 free tokens for each new payment method which is entered into the system.

Chaturbate is currently the biggest freemium cam site in the world. In total, Chaturbate usually has more than double the number of cam rooms online than any other site. Regardless of your gender or physical preferences, you will be able to find something on Chaturbate. It might be a long search though, as there are literally thousands of rooms to go through and the tag system isn't the best.
You can view the chat rooms on Chaturbate for as long as you want without registering, but you will remain muted in over 95% of the rooms until you register. Once you have registered you will continue to be muted in most rooms, with the chat restrictions being lifted once you buy tokens. Some models mute all users who haven't tipped, but we usually ignore them.
Chaturbate has private shows starting for under $0.60 a minute, but you will find that many of the models aren't looking to perform private shows. They would rather work the crowd for tips. Private shows are so underutilized on the site that cam2cam is not included in private shows, and you usually need to tip extra for it. In fact, you need to set yourself up as a broadcaster to c2c. But on the plus side, you can get a show recording just like on CamSoda.
Chaturbate doesn't offer any sort of benefits to new users. There's a ton of nudity and fucking everywhere you look. That is enough of a draw for most users.

MyFreeCams was the original free cam site. Once other sites realized how profitable a free site can be, many sites like MyFreeCams popped onto the net. MyFreeCams has a huge assortment of babes, but absolutely no men or transgenders. MyFreeCams is a girls only site and is honestly far more expensive and cumbersome to use than the rest of the competition.
MyFreeCams has a plethora of free cam rooms to explore. Registering is free, which allows you to start creating your very own favorites list. You will find that registered free users are muted in basically all of the cam rooms. You will need to buy tokens just once, to become unmuted across all the cam rooms.
The problem with MyFreeCams, is the prohibitively expensive private shows, which have a set price of $6.00 a minute, not inclusive of cam2cam. To cam2cam, you will need to change your settings, to broadcast your cam. It is very similar to how it works on Chaturbate, though it needs to be set up differently.
MyFreeCams doesn't give any rewards/benefits to new users.

As you can see, each cam site offers a slightly different experience. The average price for a private sex show is around $3.00 a minute, with hotter cam girls charging more, and newer cam girls charging less.
For users looking for private shows, we recommend CamSoda, LiveJasmin, Flirt4Free, ImLive, Streamate, xLoveCam, or Cams.com.
For users looking for free cam shows based on tips and requests, we recommend CamSoda, Stripchat, Chaturbate, or MyFreeCams.
If you are a mobile focused user, the three sites you should focus on are Camsoda, LiveJasmin, or xLoveCam. These are your only options if you want to be able to c2c while on a mobile device.
Users who are looking for an immediate cheap experience will prefer Flirt4Free for its sort by price function or xLoveCam for its lower than average price. ImLive is also a great option, as it has long shows for cheap, and a great loyalty program. ImLive is amazing if you are looking for a site to use for years to come, as it will only get cheaper with time. CamSoda actually has the cheapest cam rooms overall, but you will need to manually open each room to check the prices which can become frustrating.
There are of course special features that might draw your attention. Cams is the best for interactive sex cams. Stripchat is the only cam site that still offers VR chat rooms. ImLive lets you watch 6 rooms at a time using the Multi-viewer. CamSoda, on a computer, gives you live video peeks from the preview galleries.
Overall, the best sex cam site is CamSoda. Between the site's cool features, low prices, free cam2cam, and free show recordings, there really is a whole lot going for this site. While the overall selection isn't quite as big as some other sites, the girls are just as beautiful.
