It’s an industry that’s worth billions of dollars and its overall value just keeps on rising, so it’s no surprise that countless women are flocking to the rewarding world of a live sex-camming career daily.
However, let’s keep it real; getting started in the adult cam industry can be daunting for fresh-faced newcomers.
In addition to buying equipment, setting up your space, and establishing your niche, it’s also important to think about the cam site that’s right for you and your needs.
There are, of course, no small number of adult cam sites out there, however. Because of the sheer volume on offer, it can be tricky to pick one (or more) that’s suitable.
Each site itself will, naturally, try to sell you on its merits, so it’s not easy to choose one based on its own sales pitches.
Which is where we come in. With our extensive experience with many such sites, we’re in the unique position to give you honest and unbiased advice about the site that’s right for you.
So without further ado, let’s look at the 6 most beginner-friendly cam sites around.
Chaturbate has been around since 2011 and has been steadily carving a niche for itself since then. It’s a great platform for cam performers who are just starting out, owing mainly to its user-friendly tools and ability to fine-tune every aspect of your account according to your preferences.
One of the best features of Chaturbate (from the perspective of a performer) is their prompt payments, sent through once every two weeks using a variety of methods.
You can request a PayPal payment, wire transfer, Skrill, and direct deposit. No matter how you prefer getting paid, chances are Chaturbate can do it.
There are a lot of ways to make money on the site, too. In addition to live streaming, you can also curate a collection of clips and stills that you can later sell (or make available with a subscription to your feed). You can also sell tickets for upcoming private shows, effectively getting an advance on the money you earn.
All in all, Chaturbate is the perfect cam site for beginners to the industry, with smart payment options and a host of ways to attract new viewers.
CamSoda is, quite simply, one of the best options around for brand-new models in the camming industry. With its host of payment options and built-in perks and protections for all of its models, it’s one site that makes sure its performers are fully taken care of at all times.
Take, for instance, the fact that CamSoda offers health insurance bonuses for its models. If you earn over $3500 monthly on the site, you’re eligible for $125 toward health insurance.
Over $7000, and they’ll give you $250. This is generally more than enough to cover health insurance costs and goes a long way toward ensuring peace of mind.
CamSoda also offers DMCA protection on your content, and you can block your feed from appearing in certain countries (or states in the US). This means that you can stream without any danger of friends, family, or neighbors recognizing you.
All told, CamSoda is a fantastic option for new sex cam girls who want to be secure in their content and their health.
LiveJasmin is one of the biggest names around when it comes to cam sites, and there’s a good reason for that – they’re very good at what they do.
Part of that appeal is the models that they feature on their sites, and those models wouldn’t stick around if they weren’t happy with what LiveJasmin was bringing to the table.
However, they do have quite high standards – you’ll need to stream in HD and make sure all photos and videos offered on your profile are, similarly, HD.
In return, LiveJasmin offers 24/7 customer support for their models (and their customer support is legendary), the ability to country-block (similarly to CamSoda) to make sure you don’t pop up on your cousin’s laptop screen, and monthly cash prizes for their top-performing models.
LiveJasmin is a little more difficult to get started in, but once you’ve established yourself, it’s a great site to make a living on.
StripChat is a great platform for performers who prefer to make their money via tips and gifts in free chatrooms.
Models get paid 5 cents a token, and if you’ve set up a popular free room those tokens will flow quickly and easily. If you’d still prefer to take things private as often as possible, however, then that’s an option too.
If you do go the private show route, you’ll have a great degree of control over how much you charge for them (from as little as 8 tokens all the way up to 150 tokens per minute).
On top of this, the amount you get to keep is extremely generous – after taxes, fees, and StripChat’s cut, you’ll walk away with 60-70%.
Another of the biggest cam names around, ImLive is a great choice for the budding new cam performer. It’s a site that’s more suited to private shows and ‘candy shows’ (a group show, in ImLive’s parlance) than to free shows, and one of their stipulations is that you don’t get naked in the free shows.
ImLive features regional blocking to protect your privacy, charge-back protection (in case a client has his credit card return charges after they’ve already made use of your services), and fixed payouts twice monthly.
ImLive offers 30% commission to its models from all private chats, but this can go up in certain cases (for instance, when converting a client from an unpaid one to a paying one who spends his first credits on you, you can earn 100% commission). This isn’t as generous as some other sites, but ImLive offers a lot of protections that make this trade-off worth it.
There are Plenty of Options Regarding Beginner-Friendly Adult Cam Sites
If you’re thinking about breaking through into the cam industry, the good news is that there are plenty of options and that they cater to all preferences.
Whether you’d prefer to make your money in private shows or you’d rather rake in tips in free chat rooms, there’s bound to be something for you out there.
Simply assess your options, look into the benefits and protections offered, and make the right decision for you and your modeling career.
