MyFreeCams is an American based live cam site providing performances by amateur cam models. The website typically features nudity and sexual activities such as masturbating with sex toys and stripteases. MyFreeCams only features female cam models also known as camgirls.
MyFreeCams.com launched in 2002 and by 2010 was described by XBIZ as one of the largest adult cam communities in the world. Reports say that it was having more than 100k models and more then five million members. An adult industry talent agent said to CNBC that models on the website can make between $75,000 and $100,000 per month. This also being a good reason for professional porn stars to get into camming. It was reported that MyFreeCams was “the 344th most visited website on the internet” back in 2014.
MyFreeCams like many cam sites features a large number of Colombian, Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian, Czech and phillipine performers though in comparison with other sites MyFreeCams has the most U.S. based models.
Mostly amateur cam models use MyFreeCams who earn money for their performances on the website. Users of the website can buy virtual money which are called tokens which can be used to tip performers or watch private cam shows. A text based live chat can be used by users to talk to each other or in the performer’s chat room. To broadcast live video and audio in their channel performers use a webcam and microphone. Users and performers alike can send private messages and mail to each other.
MyFreeCams does have some restrictions on the activities performed by cam models on their broadcast. In February 2015 for example a cam model who had been charged for misdemeanor for broadcasting in a public place in this case a library at the Oregon State University, was banned for violating their guidelines and broadcasting in a public place. Although there were no legal charges laid, the site also banned another model who engaged in smiliar activity at branches of the Windsor Public Library over a period of three months.
The award for live cam site (xbiz award) was awarded to MyFreeCams in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Additionally it was named one of the top 50 industry Newsmakers of 2014 by Xbiz. MyFreeCams won an AVN award for best live chat website in 2014.
