BongaCams is a free to use adult webcam site that offers users the chance to watch real webcam stars performing in a range of adults only live chat shows. From naughty adult chat to more personal one on one private chat sessions, it is a genuine cam site that promises a lot.
The BongaCams.com opening page of the site is welcoming and warm. There are no false pretenses made. You know from the start where you are, what you are looking at and how to find what you really want. The BongaCams.com home page is divided into four main sections. An upper horizontal tabulated series of selections. These direct you to all areas of the site, not just the free adult chat webcams.
The left hand column is dedicated to allowing users that opportunity to narrow down the available free cams that they can view. The filter parameters are based around adult chat preferences in terms of body type, age, appearance and features of their activity types. The list is extensive and caters to almost all of the everyday kinks that people would expect to find on a website position to serve this niche sector of the adult cams industry. Alongside each filter option the site also tells users exactly how many active online adult webcams there are within that specific parameter.
The main section of the homepage is where the real action can be found. There are direct links to all of the active cams, via an active screenshot of the relevant models in action. Along with the image users are shown the languages of the model and the video chat room he/she is operating and a small teaser written by the model.
At the top right of the homepage, you can set the language of the site, selecting from 27 different languages, which is very impressive!
You can open up any model’s public chat when they aren’t away or in a private room. There you can chat with them and watch their cam. It isn’t hard to find models that are naked or giving shows in these public rooms; if they are, chances are they’re being tipped by members in the public chat. You can tip them, too, after you buy some credits. Girls usually have tipping points – once they get XXX credits. It really depends on the girls. Some don’t like giving it up for free and prefer you to go private, but a lot of girls prefer to stay in the public chat and do their shows on tips.
The site is well built, loads fast and is easy to use. You can see at a glance how many credits you have on every page of the site, and it’s real easy to get in and add more. You can also look at model’s profiles and many have photo albums to look at. You can make them friends and follow them, and send messages, too.
Bongacams.com is divided in 18 main categories that can be found on the left side of a homepage (anal play, babes, big tits, blonde, brunette, college girls, couples, hairy pussy, mature, medium tits, redhead, shaved pussy, squirt, small tits, teens 18+, toys, BBW, big butt).
