Everything You Need To Know
Written by: Don Watson | Updated: November 15th, 2020
Well, I never really expected to be writing about another one of these sites after my JerkMate review, but I suppose I should have known that by posting that review I'd get tons of emails asking about similar sites.
But hey, life could be worse. It's really the little things that have gotten to us lately, some of my close friends have told me how much they miss the simple pleasures of the strip club. We've had to get creative with all of the social distancing and the like happening worldwide, as a creative person my mind immediately went straight to how web cam sites might just be the perfect digital way to scratch that itch.
Of course, a lot of that hinges on whether or not a site like MyFreeCams even offers what they're trying to say they are. Any website that surrounds sex in any capacity tends to get a lot more scrutiny out of me since it's only recently that many adult providers have figured out that providing a good service will make you way more money than ruthlessly ripping people off.
A lot comes to mind just from the name MyFreeCams that I hoped to get to the bottom of. Would I truly feel familiar enough as to call these cams "mine"? Just how free would they be?
There was only one way to find out at this point: dive in headfirst.
How Does MyFreeCams Work?
So the website at first glance isn't anything too special, in fact at first I was a little worried that it might be a bit outdated. I learned my lesson about judging a book by its cover yet again though as soon as I noticed that a lot of features you only find on new websites were front and center. For instance, I could search for other models while still seeing my current performer at the bottom of my screen and just about any click to something else was pretty seamless. I'd sooner think they're keeping things simple because the amount of bandwidth required for video is absolutely colossal.
They definitely lived up to their name pretty quickly. Most cam sites have an awful habit of making it impossible to do anything without signing up for an account, something that often means providing your credit card.
My first click upon visiting the site was on a performer and I was immediately brought into her chat room.
If I backed out I could quickly adjust my settings and tastes based on a whack load of settings that ranged from geographical location to how long the girl had been there and even if guests could chat or not.
Something that I really like about MyFreeCams is that they have figured out a pretty smart way for people to search for models with specific traits. See, lots of websites just allow you to add and subtract predetermined categories and hope that the models are categorized properly. An example of a potential issue with this system are things like girls showing up in Huge Boobs but not Big Boobs. You get the picture.
Instead you can go by keywords themselves that you type in and then it'll give some more matches. That means if new niche performers start showing up it's really easy to add in a keyword that's only recently became a thing. Also, if you notice the kind of performers you like the most all have a few common keywords it's extremely easy to just add those and let the database do all the hard work.
So I guess in the simplest sense of their website, I received customized results (My), could see performers in varying stages of nakedness without even having to sign up (Free), and these were certainly images broadcast to me via camera (Cams). Besides being a pretty bad joke on my part, those previous bits all add up to the fact that I really haven't been duped. I've come to accept that with a lot of these types of services there are sometimes a few weird pop-ups to accept or strange things they're trying to get you to click. Not here, surprisingly. For the amount of ads I've seen for MyFreeCams, I was just a little bit impressed that I didn't get the LimeWire treatment by being bombarded with sketchy ads.
My MFC Experience
It shouldn't come as a shock to anyone who's familiar with my wife & I, but we're not really the types to shy away from anything out of insecurities. The way we see it, our raw lizard brain style sexuality doesn't just evaporate after getting in a relationship. We're completely monogamous but I mean people who are attractive who aren't us still exist. The point of all this is that Angela came along to see what was on offer so it isn't just my perspective represented here.
Compared to a lot of other websites, MFC is a lot more about accessibility and piecemeal services as opposed to hour long webcam romps. What I mean by this is that instead of donating for an entire hour or more, it's a lot more common to donate for a specific act or kink. Some people keep it as simple as a handful of change to take off their shirt while some go as far as a $10 bill to use a specific toy on cam. Lovense toys are well represented among performers as well, with viewers able to donate to raise or lower a toy's setting remotely.
Putting one dollar in your account gives 10 tokens which can then be either donated straight up or used to get specific services. What's also very unique is that lots of girls have a repertoire of pre-recorded videos thanks to the rise of OnlyFans. Each girl has a "whiteboard" where she lists all of the worthwhile content with prices. Surprisingly, individual videos or even bundles of videos can often be purchased for about $1.50 or less worth of tokens.
Compared to sites like JerkMate, the camera quality and performers themselves are a bit of a step below what a "premium" cam site might offer. It was much harder for Angela and I to find people streaming in 1080p but that's not to say it lacks charm. There is definitely this feeling using the site that the girls are a lot more independent and able to do as they please than on some of the more prim & proper sites. A lot of girls also split their time between MFC and OnlyFans, with MFC being a way to introduce people to their content at affordable rates.
Amateurs aren't the only ones getting in on the MFC action either. Professional pornstars ranging from Ariella Ferrara to Karma RX and even Larkin Love have had their stints on the platform which in our opinion is just about the best seal of approval any cam site out there can get.
So, Do We Recommend MyFreeCams?
It's also a very affordable option compared to a lot of other sites, to the point where I'd almost call it a "budget" cam site but that comes with the connotations that the level of service available is a bit lower too. How "valuable" and "worth it" varies wildly between performers but an overwhelming majority of them have a lot of premium services to access their content at extremely affordable prices.
To put in an easy a way to understand as possible, if I solely used girls on MFC for masturbation instead of relying on porn sites I would have serious troubles spending more than $20-$40 a month even if I was wanking off on the daily. Another good sign from MFC is that it is entirely possible to see some actually naked performers in varying states of arousal without having to put any money down.
It's rare to see a cam site that doesn't lead its users along with a carrot on a stick, so for that alone I have to really give props to MFC. If you want something a bit more advanced however, checking out our Jerkmate review might help break the mental stalemate between the two.
Either way, making a free account just to poke around won't leave you any poorer, and if 13 year old you only knew how easy it was to see a glimpse of titty with sites like these I can imagine a lot of teenage nights would have gone differently.
