Xcams.com and Xcams.co.uk are the same website under different domains. The sites are fairly new with Xcams.com created in 2009 and the .co.uk version is 2011. When you first visit xcams.com you will notice that the site design looks well, the colour scheme of black and purple looks great and overall it stands out from other, similar kinds of cam site.
At the top of the page are four tabs, these provide access to the different niches available. These are women, couples, men and transgender. Below this you can select cam host by language, available are French, English, Spanish, German, Italian and Dutch. To the right of this is a handy slider than enables you to fine tune what age girls you would like, this works very well for ages 18 – 60 years old.
Other options available include sorting the live chat hosts by top rated, newest, last connection amongst others. The final option here allows you to set the size of the thumbnail and how many chat hosts are visable on screen at any one time. Both useful features.
At the time of reviewing there were 350+ models live, mainly women but with 12 couples, 9 guys and 11 transgender.
The bottom of the screen provides links to a very helpful FAQ and the sites newsletter. In the bottom right of your screen you will see a small box that permanently stays with you, this provides you with quick and easy access to any girls you have previously talked to or any host that you have added to your favourites.
Placing your cursor over one of the chat hosts images brings up a small video clip, this is effectively peeking into the chat hosts private room. The video you see is the same as the thumbnail, often you will find girls masturbating or doing other kinky things. Unfortunately this ‘free preview’ only lasts a few seconds and it’s impossible to tell if it’s real or recorded.
Clicking the thumbnail takes you to the signup page, there is no free signup option at xcams however it is a good price and the girls are absolutely stunning.
You can register in three ways:
1. By phone – It’s the first time I have seen this registration option on a cam site and it’s a unique idea, all you have to do is dial a number costing £1.53 per minute and you will be provided with a code. Enter the code into the site and you will be given unrestricted access whilst you remain on the phone.
2. Discovery offer – Simply enter an email and password and then choose from one of three payment options (including visa and mastercard). You will be billed just £1.00 for 5 minutes access.
3. By text message (SMS) – Simply choose one of the available short code SMS numbers for either 2 minutes, 4 minutes or 6 minutes. Enter the code onto the site along with your email and chosen password . You will be verified and allowed the allotted access time.
Once you have registered you will need to purchase additional credit. this can only be purchased when registered and logged in. Prices and available topup amounts are shown below.
- 10 mins – £21.40 (£2.14/min)
- 25 mins = £42.95 (£1.70/min)
- 60 mins = £83.99 (£1.45/min)
- 330 mins = £422.50 (£1.00/min)
Depending what country you are accessing from will likely depend on the currency displayed (either Euro, Dollar or Pound) however the prices are basically the same whichever.
It’s not until you fully register that you can fully appreciate the high quality of this cam site, once you have logged in, not only will you be able to view the live webcam of any of the chat hosts (in full screen if you like) but you will have access to all of the high quality pre-recorded webcam clips and video on demand as well.
All of the live shows I watched ran smoothly and quite unusually for an adult cam site they all had sound. There was none of that annoying background music playing either, mainly moaning and groaning
A large proportion of the live webcams were broadcasting in HD which looked fantastic, particually in full screen. However, some were stated as being HD yet when you opened the live stream they obviously were not and on these the frame rate did get a bit choppy.
Whilst searching for a hot girl to watch, there are a few things to take note of;
- Free Chat – As you would expect whilst in free chat you can watch all day and your credits will not go down however rarely will you see anything kinky. This is good to get to know the models.
- Go Live Show – Here you will find the girls in various positions, naked, using toys.. whatever. Live shows cost 5 credits per minute and you will be sharing the room with other members. You can take the girl private at anytime, this costs around 20 credits per minute.
- Go Voyeur – This option means you can watch but cannot participate. Voyeur shows cost 5 credits per minute.
You can keep an eye on the number of credits you have remaining via the credit monitor at the top of the page. Whilst in a live show, private, watching video clips or VOD your credit will reduce. When the credits reach zero you will need to reload to add more.
Be aware that if you try to add credits whilst viewing a live show the show will not stop whilst you are choosing your package and entering your card details. If you are not careful you could waste your remaining credits topping up.
If you are waiting for a special girl to come online you can check out the ‘webcam clips’ area, these are pre-recorded past webcam shows in a Youtube style format. Watching a video clip costs 2 tokens per minute. The clips are generally pretty short (2 – 5 minutes each) however they can be really interesting!
Video on Demand (VOD)
VOD is another small subsection of xcams, basically it’s a selection of premium movies ranging from 10 – 30 minutes in length. These movies are professionally produced and generally not amateur content.
Videos can be searched by Language: English or French. By speciality: 2 girls 1 guy, 1 guy 2 girls, anal, double vaginal/anal, fetish, female ejaculation, group sex etc. By profile: age, big boobs, pierced, shaved pussies, blondes etc and by ethnic origin: American, Asian, Black, French, Indian etc.
These videos are high quality and cost 2 credits per minute.
With 300+ chat hosts online at anyone time and in excess of 4000 registered you are unlikely to not find something that catches your eye. Most of the hosts offer HD and the large majority have microphones so you can hear everything.
As mentioned the site is a pleasure to use, everything looks good and once logged in the multiple video sizes combined with high quality sound make for a great experience.
Finding your way around is easy using the advanced search and filtering system.
The majority of the chat hosts I talked to were friendly and willing to do almost anything. One thing that became apparent though was a lot of the models spoke to other members in either Dutch or German as apposed to English. Of course the hosts can speak English. I suppose this proves that xcams is truely an international cam site.
For me, Xcams was a pleasant surprise, whilst it’s disappointing that there is no free chat option registration is cheap and once logged in and you see the high quality of the models they have it’s hard not to be impressed. The pricing is reasonable for a high end cam site. my advice is take the discovery option. £1.00 access, 5 minutes free chat. Perfect.
