To most dudes, it’s going to seem like the only thing you need to be concerned about on sites for sex cams is whether or not there’s a limit to how much tits and ass you can view on a daily basis. While these sites are undeniably awesome, there are still some things you need to know before you register on them and start throwing your financial info in their direction.

Just like anything on the Internet, cam sites can be home to scamming attempts of all kinds. Depending on which ones you pick, they also might not be as amazing as you’d hoped for. So to ensure you’re making the right decision (and that it’s one that won’t come back and bite you in the ass), you need to learn the basic facts about cam sites before you make a commitment on them.

It’s Going to Cost Money

A lot of people assume that there’s always going to be some workaround or “hack” for any website on the Internet that’ll let you get the goods for free. Unfortunately, that’s not the case when it comes to sex camming sites. If you want to see the goods you’re going to have to pony up the cash, which means that seeing the goods might not be an option if you’re bank account is on the verge of being bone dry. Don’t make the decision to hand over your credit card info if you honestly can’t afford a cam site hobby.

This isn’t to say that you’re not going to be able to enjoy the sexy cam girls on a budget, because you totally can. You just need to be smart about it. Instead of picking the featured performer of the week that’s on the front page (and charges an exorbitant hourly rate), take some time to go looking for a bargain. This doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to only getting a show from the older, wrinkled, grandma-looking cam girls. It does mean that if you’re okay with amateur performers or foreign performers, you’ll be able to get a hell of a show AND you won’t be paying an obscene amount of money for it.

Another costly feature that most men new to the cam site scene don’t account for is tipping. If you’ve received an amazing show from a cam girl (or you’d like to keep seeing a lot more of her hot body) it’s normal to drop some credits on a tip. Unless you want to come off looking like a huge tightwad, it’s actually good idea to tip. You don’t need to be extravagant about it, but more than a couple bucks is standard.

Tipping is also standard when you’re hanging out in public chat making requests from the resident cam girl in order to get some teaser action. You probably won’t get to see anything good if you don’t tip, so make sure you have credits available when you pop into public chat. When you’re accounting for how much a cam site hobby might cost you, you definitely need to factor in tipping.

It’s Not All Women, All the Time

You might think that the moment you register on a sex show cam site your computer will be flooded with videos of very sexy ladies stripping down and exposing their naughty bits for you. That’s not always the case. In fact, if you’re partial to the more popular cam girls, you might actually have to book an appointment with them before you can get a show.

Most cam girls tend to work shifts, as well. This means that if you hop on first thing in the morning expecting to see your favorite performer, you may be disappointed. Mornings and days are usually the slowest times for cam sites, which means that they’ll have fewer performers online during those times. Peak hours are in the evening, which means that logging on after dinner will give you a better chance to line up a show with the girl you’ve been fantasizing about.

Sometimes Cam Girls Are Disappointing

This isn’t the truth all the time. In fact, it’s a rare occurrence when a guy gets a cam girl who’s really not all that good. It’s still something that every cam site customer needs to be aware of, however. For every few fantastic cam girls, there’s going to be one or two that are lazy, surly, or just hate what they do. These kind of lame performers are generally easy to spot.

Lazy cam girls are those that basically feel they’re entitled to all your credits, even when they’re putting out the bare minimum. They’ll use any kind of time-wasting tactic they can think of, including taking too long to get prepared, filling up your paid time with idle chatter, or pretending that they don’t understand what it is you want them to do. Usually, a threat to report them to the site’s management team will be enough to light a fire under the asses and get them doing what they should have been doing this entire time.

Surly cam girls and the cam girls that hate their jobs might be a little harder to spot. The best way to figure out if a cam girl really loves what she does is to watch how she interacts with guys in public chat. If she’s flirty, smiles often, and likes to laugh, that’s a good indication that she enjoys her job. A cam girl that sulks, won’t respond to requests, or is bitchy in chat is the kind of performer you want to steer clear from.

You May Get Off Faster Than You Think

You might think you’ve got staying power when it comes to holding off on ejaculation, but don’t get too carried away when it comes time to pay for a private show. It’s really going to impress the cam girl if you pay for an hour and actually manage to last that long. The truth for most guys, however, is that only a short show is needed. Once you’ve got the model of your dreams naked on camera and she’s using a vibrator on herself, you’re going to be ready to blow your load pronto.

Don’t waste money trying to make it look like you’re a master of sexual restraint. Pay for what you think you can handle. If it’s only a 10-minute show, there’s no shame in that. You’ll be saving money on a shorter show but you’ll still be able to get off, which is exactly what needs to happen in order for you to get your money’s worth.

There’s Always More Than One Cam Girl That’s Worth Your Time

You might think that the entire point of a cam site is for you to find that one perfect model and subscribe to her for the rest of your life. That’s not the case at all. One of the best aspects of cam sites is that they tend to have a huge selection of very sexy ladies for you to choose from. You don’t’ need to keep getting a show from the same model over and over again. You can very easily mix things up and start paying for shows from models of all shapes, sizes, and looks.

If you definitely like variety when it comes to sex, it’s totally worth your while to shop around to find a few gorgeous ladies that really get your motor running. This way you’ll be able to get off no matter what you’re craving. And the best part is that there’s no extra fee for choosing to get shows from several cam girls instead of getting shows from just one.
