Cam4 advertises itself as the world's best in live amateur cams. And that is probably a fair assessment, even if a bit biased.
For years the adult webcam business model was essentially to offer performers in private chat rooms broadcasting from (mostly) Eastern European studios. Over the past decade that concept has been shattered by sites like Cam4 which operate based on the concept that anybody should be allowed to broadcast from anywhere. And make no mistake, there's a little bit of anything and everything here.

The first time you visit Cam4 you can be excused for feeling a little overwhelmed. The homepage offers snapshots into hundreds of performers' chat rooms and expect to see everything from solo women to transsexuals to gay couples in just about any sex act or show. It's pretty much a free-for-all where (almost) anything goes and inhibitions have been tossed aside.
Thankfully, Cam4 offers plenty of filters to help you narrow down what you see: Gender, location, language plus the usual physical attributes. I do wish, however, that they offered simple categories like Women, Men, TS/TV and couples to make filtering out what you don't want to see even simpler.
Cam4 offers a Gold Membership for $19.99 (USD) per month. I'd recommend looking into it if you intend on spending time here as it not only provides you with 100 tokens to start but allows access to advanced features like:
- The ability to send private messages to performers
- Multi-cam support
- Your user name highlighted in chatrooms
- The best feature, however, may be access to Gold-only shows
While the site is clearly focused on group and "gold" shows (whereby you pay for admission with tokens), many performers are also available for private shows - just expect to pay a premium for taking them away from the lucrative tips they'd otherwise receive in a public room.
Like most sites focused on tip-based revenue, you can expect to shell out tokens for just about anything, from controlling a performer's sex toy to joining their fan club, viewing recorded shows and so on. Things can get expensive fast, even more so if you indulge yourself in private shows.
As for the actual shows, since most performers actually perform based on the tips they receive Cam4 has made the process simple via buttons on the chat interface while performers typically provide the details on what to expect (e.g. "Flash at 100 tokens, Strip at 250", etc.). It provides an intuitive process that is easy to understand, even for beginners.
- Private chat rates are typically 12 - 40 tokens a minute (~ $2 - $6/min.)
- Cam4's token system allows you to purchase tokens in blocks of 50, up to 500. Each token is worth approx. $0.17 to $0.20 USD depending on the package purchased
- For non-U.S. members, thankfully exchange rates are reasonable and seem to reflect current market rates
◊ Performers have a profile page (scroll down from their chat window) that can include a video and photo gallery, gift shop, message board as well as typical features like bio details and information on their group and private shows.
◊ Performers have their own fan clubs with perks, accessible via a monthly fee.
◊ Recorded shows with prices ranging typically from 10 to 120 tokens, though some do offer free videos as well.
◊ Lots on interactive sex toy support including Lovense, OhMiBod and others. As with most cam sites sex toys are activated via tips.
Cam4 is truly one of the leaders in amateur webcam shows, with performers of every size, shape, gender and show type. And it won't take you long to find a performer (or couple or group) engaged in a live sex show of some kind.
Not only is it a destination for viewers, if the exhbitionist inside you wants to turn on your own cam and make money broadcasting yourself, Cam4 makes it extremely easy with a thorough guide and great support.
On the negative side, this is not the site for true 1-on-1 video chat experiences. While most performers do allow private chats they can be on the expensive side.
The Good News
- Thousands of amateur/home-based performers from around the world
- Expect to see just about every kind of performer (including groups) and show
- Most tip goals made by performers are reasonable
The Bad News
- Most performers broadcast in HD but I've found quite a few poor-quality feeds as well
- Private chats, understandably, can get pretty expensive
- Performers seem to be focused mostly on performing for tips and tend to avoid communicating with members.
