(not Camcontact or Cam Contact) is like a clone of iFriends (see ifriends review) by people (Exhibitionists and Voyeurs
both) who didn't like iFriends.
Although Camcontacts is now well established (started in Nov 00) - and probably building up
on ifriends in terms of number of girls, it doesn't really seem to have the
growth rate of other sites like Cum TV or
However now that things have settled down in terms of growth they are
adding lots of features in like cam2cam (one2one they call it) with two way sound as well.
Though there is quite a bit of debate in their forums about this feature
because the hosts there are trying to offer specific things only if viewers
go into one2one, which has a higher per minute cost.
Not all the hosts do this, in fact not even many, and the camcontacts
management have said they will crack down on it. The feature is
advertised as, and they intend to keep it as, just a chance to be in private
with one girl without other viewers distracting her from you.
Hosts are broken down into a variety of different categories, and I think
they invented a few of them like "a little shy" which are now used by other
- Non Adult
- Friends and Family
- Make New Friends
- Long Term or Marriage
- Girls Home Alone - A little shy
- Girls Home Alone - Not so shy
- Girls Home Alone - Instant Action
- Groups (3 or more)
- Gender Benders (TV, TS, CD)
- Boys Home Alone - Straight
- Boys Home Alone - Gay
- Escorts & Massage
- Video PLAYBACK of PAST session
I think that covers just about everything don't you! Of course some
of the more obscure categories don't have a lot of hosts online at any one
time, but you'll generally find at least one. Even "Long Term or
Marriage" has 20 or so, though I wouldn't take the category name too
literally. Boy-boy is the hardest section to fill and sometimes is
You can also browse through cams by country if you are looking for
someone near your location. Click "search" in the left border then
"View by country" in the middle of the screen above the search box.
View by language and works in the same way; this time giving you choices
from English through the obvious Latvian and Romanian to Japanese(!), Arabic
(!!) to Hebrew (find a nice Jewish girl for you me boy?). This is not
entirely accurate though, I saw one person who apparently claimed to speak
every language which is a large exaggeration I'm sure unless you say "ahhh
ahhh, oooo ooo" counts as valid in any language!
Text chat is free in every section, just browse around until you find
someone who appeals then click the text chat button. This gets you a
static picture of the person to look at together with a text chat window
where you can get started in conversation. No signup at all is needed
Video chat however requires a login and per minute fees, there is no free
video on Camcontacts. It can be pretty cheap though, you'll see some
hosts advertising $0.69/minute which is almost as low as
You'll need a "register for free viewer account" first which will need
your credit card details to "verify your age" etc, usual thing. This
account will allow you to see some more archive pictures than you would
otherwise see; all the explicit ones are screened and not visible to
Once you have an account of course you can then get into paid chat which
will be billed to your card "discretely" as CC Network.
The way billing works at Camcontacts is quite different from most other
sites. With the majority of sites you "buy credits" and load a bunch
of money into their system, which leaves your bank/card immediately they
stays on their system until you spend it.
With CamContacts though they use "Continuous Billing" which is a way of
saying that once they have your CC number they bill you immediately you do
any chat. Advantage of this is that you don't have to leave cash lying
around in their site before you use it, and you don't get interrupted by
being out of funds, but the bad side is that you can end up spending more
than you intended as the money just drains out of your credit card as you
Camcontacts also run "myfabsite.com" which is where any chathost can put her own
web pages which is similar to the free hosting deal that is provided by
ifriends. I believe
Camz also provides some free hosting. I don't know any other site that provides free hosting, let
me know if you do.
You will also find Camcontacts running under a bunch of
That last one is interesting isn't it? Addresses one of the
underlying drives of webcam viewers -- to actually meet and have a
relationship with ladies they meet on cam sites. Not to say this
doesn't happen (I know a couple of married couples like this), but it
has to be very rare. Cam chathosts are performers providing a
service for the most part.
On the whole the per minute charges are
much less than sites like Flirt4 free, and
probably average a little under ifriends. Of course there is a large
range though so you'll find some higher priced hosts as well.
amoung major sites they cover chargebacks, so if the customer refuses to
pay, the host still gets their payment. Sounds nice for the host but
this is a risky business model for camcontacts to be giving out money for
shows for which they have not been paid!
