MyCams Review - Glamour Girls in HD
If you're looking for the hottest cam girl website, you're not far off when you visit MyCams. This premium HD webcam site works smoothly and is streamlined to sport a number of features without any annoying distractions. It focuses on displaying their talented webcam models in HD720p and is trouncing much of the competition. However, all of this comes at the cost of limited features and weak membership benefits.
Since this is a premium sex cam site, it makes sense for MyCams to select high quality live hot girls. Despite that, the private show prices aren't any higher than the freemium chat sites, and in some cases they are cheaper, making this site one of the cheapest cam sites online. They also use per second billing to show you that you're only billed for the seconds that count.
The Cam Models
At MyCams the quality of its performers is better than a lot of other cam sites with a large number to match. To find the girl you're looking for, the site uses excellent navigation with helpful search functions. As an example, you can even search by languages spoken by the cam girls through the Advanced Search options, although there are only five to choose from: Spanish, German, Italian, French and English. However, if your girl is busy in a Private Chat or offline, a message will be shown on her picture in the gallery as well as in her room. With around 1200+ models always online broadcasting in hi-def, you won't have any difficulty in finding another one.
The hot cam girls at MyCams are all great lookers, so you won't need to search for long. If you enjoy the hunt, you've got plenty of webcams to look through as you scroll down the gallery page, but if you want to reduce your choices, select the Advanced Search from the top of the page and cross-filter your selection to get your answer. One problem is that their bio contains very little information. However, the site has included physical features, like Build and Breast Size as well as what she is willing to perform.
Take note that MyCams is a legit premium cam site and many of these girls are professional full-time webcam models, so it's rare to see any nudity outside of a private show and even looked down upon by the site. These girls make up for it with all their experience to fulfill your desires. However, if you like that sweet innocent less experienced one you can always choose a Newbie.
There is a small selection of male models at MyCams, but they are quite the pick. Similar to the girls the boys are very handsome, yet the number of male cam hosts always online is only around 50. These guys provide similar shows like the girls and want to meet your needs. The only problems is their bio, as their description is weak and often incomplete making it more difficult to find the perfect guy.
The selection of tranny models is greater in amount than the boys, with around 100 online during most times of the day, but it is still much less than the girls. MyCams' tgirls are mostly above average looking and quite sexy. Thankfully, they put in more content in their bio information than the boys, but it could be improved. The hot shemale models provide excellent services and can be a little more playful than the rest.
MyCams' Feature Highlights
MyCams is always working on delivering new site features. Their latest, is the new Mobile Live feature. This allows the models to broadcast from their mobile devices wherever they may be. This gives mobile cam girls more freedom and more availability. Since it's still very new, there are few models using it. However, the streaming quality is high, and the platform runs smoothly.
A useful feature to get that personal touch, cam2cam, is always shown in great quality since live streaming is in HD720p. You can turn on the cam2cam by selecting the camera option on the sidebar menu, and give access to your camera when asked by the pop-up. When using this feature, it's a good idea to switch off any other apps that are using the camera, like Skype, so there are no interruptions.
An alternative to cam2cam is the 2-way audio, which switches on your microphone allowing a one-to-one conversation. Both of these options are extra and cost an additional credit or two per minute for each feature.
Other great features include:
- Club Elite, membership loyalty program
- Story - social media style photo and video uploads
- Cam to cam over a mobile device
- Favourites list
Joining MyCams is not difficult and you only need a Username, Password and an E-mail address to get started. Although, I would recommend entering a Username that gets you noticed, and a valid email to avoid problems purchasing credits as you'll need to confirm your email. Once you're ready with your personal details, you return to the homepage gallery, where you can dive into a sea full of sexy live cam girls.
Chat Options & Prices
There are three main choices to make your erotic requests to the girls, which are Free Chat, Private Show and VIP Show. Free Chat is available to all members, with the others Private Show and VIP Show for paying members. But let's get real, when they see the green, the girls are more keen.
Even though this is a premium HD webcam site, you still have the possibility to chat for free to any of the models available. Just select the chat room and start typing. The cam model's messages are coloured differently to the members' text messages making it easier for you to see them. Be aware that you're one of many clients, so unless she falls in love with your Username, you may not receive a reply unless you slip her a tip.
Looking for that personal touch in a secret chamber, select a Private Show, where you get intimacy and privacy as long as your MyCams' credits last. There are many doors to reach this service, and it always starts with you selecting a webcam model's chat room. When inside select the big Start Private Show button. This will display two prices: one will show you the cost of the private room, and the second price is to turn on your microphone at an extra charge.
Alternatively you can use the side panel, which displays a few choices, including turning on your mic or camera. However, the costs increases with each additional one you select, and not every model has all of them switched on. The cheapest prices for a private room start as low as $1.00/min, and the average model asks for around $2.30/min.
There are times when a private webcam model is busy in a Private Show, and a spy hole lets you sneak in. To access this spy feature make sure you're in the girl's room and a pop-up will explain all.
Sending Private Messages and Surprises comes at the cost of 1 credit and up. You can read your messages by selecting your Username on the top menu bar and choosing from the list. Another way of tipping is giving Surprises. You can get to this from the cam room menu bar or from the side panel. However, these gifts can get quite expensive.
This is a shared private show, which lasts for a fixed time with a minimum entry price and a cost per minute. All prices are set by the cam model. It's a good idea to book a seat and enjoy the show since it's cheaper than having your own private room. The only disadvantage is that the nude cam model is unlikely to answer your messages unless you start tipping her.
There are a number of ways to add credits to your account. After you've signed in, a Spin The Wheel promotion pops up to allow a bonus increase from 0 to 100% on any amount of credits that you buy. This promo offer is valid for up to an hour after spinning the wheel.
First, select Get Credits at the top of any page and follow the directions. It's an easy and secure process to follow, and after purchasing credits for your account you can check your credit balance. Select Get Credits again, and the amount is shown at the top of the page. When you need more, there are many locations to find them, including in the cam room.
Take notice that MyCams has a great selection of payment methods including PayPal, gift cards and cryptocurrencies.
This site accepts:
- Visa Electron
- Visa Bleue
- Diners Club
- Union Pay
- Cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, 50+ more altcoins
- Gift Cards: Best Buy, Home Depot, Target, Walmart, Starbucks, 100+ more gift cards
Additional Payment Methods from outside the US: Pay by Phone, PaySafeCard, Neosurf, WebMoney, Bank wire transfer, GiroPay, Sofort Banking, and European Direct Debit
Feel comfortable that this trusted cam site will keep your personal payment information secure as MyCams takes extreme care to protect your data. Their billing platform fulfills the criteria for international standards of PCI DSS (payment card industry standards for compliance). It is also regularly validated by McAfee and VeriSign, who carefully scan and test for vulnerabilities preventing access to your securely encrypted data.
Membership is done differently at MyCams, and comes in Basic and Premium memberships. As a Basic member you get unlimited webcam chat in the public rooms, as well as the free photos each model uploads to her profile.
To become a Premium member, simply purchase some credits. The advantage is you can access a Private Show, VIP Show, as well as send short Private Messages and Surprises.
Mobile Experience of MyCams
MyCams' mobile version seems far less difficult to use than the desktop. Almost all the features are there but the locations of some features have moved. Since there is no room for a sidebar and not enough space for all the advanced categories, the mobile search displays a simpler list within a search bar where you can enter any of the tags from the desktop version.
Opposite the search bar on the left of your screen, there is an another side menu for other features including Get Credits, Story, choice of language and others. Sadly, you can't choose the cam room streaming quality, and the number of languages the site has been translated into is limited to 8.
Another useful feature, but also somewhat rare is cam2cam on mobiles. MyCams developed this feature on their site and it works exceptionally well. Plus, it's a great tool to have when you're traveling around. It works more or less the same as the desktop version, but if you want to type messages to your cam host, it works better in portrait mode. Otherwise, half the screen is blocked by the text.
Most of MyCams' models broadcast in high definition. If they show HD in their cam window, you can select it to highlight yellow and then the chat room is broadcasted in HD720p, otherwise other webcams stream in high quality SD.
I suggest that when you get started, if you have any difficulty seeing the webcam feeds, check that you have the Adobe Flash plug-in installed.

Before You Go
I can honestly say this cam site has a great choice of live cam girls, who are mostly broadcasting in HD720p. These girls are absolutely stunning and quite breathtaking. If that wasn't enough, the webcam site itself is smooth and can be navigated easily. On the other side of the coin, there isn't much detail in the cam models' bio information, and membership benefits aren't great. So, when you consider that the private cam girls are the site's pride and joy, and it delivers them in such high quality, who cares about the rest as we're here for the girls.
